Friends Wanting Benefits takes readers on a trip back in time – and onto a Caribbean cruise ship – to witness the budding friendship between Victoria Wilde and Jillian Grayson, the much-loved main characters of the Friends With Benefits series.

In typical Young fashion, there is plenty of passion and laughs, along with hijinks on the high seas as our heroines find themselves in the middle of a ridiculous misunderstanding. The Friends With Benefits series has attracted thousands of fans worldwide thanks to Young’s masterful depiction of strong, sexy and successful female leads who have a lot of fun and a lot of heart.

This winter, Young also released a video short featuring actors Rachel Parker and Greg Audino, capturing the undeniable chemistry between Victoria and Brian, the much-younger object of her attention, in Friends With Partial Benefits.


Victoria Wilde and Jillian Grayson meet while aboard a romantic Caribbean cruise with the men in their lives. The two become fast friends despite being in completely different relationships--Victoria, a young widow, is finally moving on with a new and exciting romance. Jillian, on the other hand, is struggling in a long marriage that's barely hanging on by a thread.

But when Victoria offers Jillian advice on how to get the spark back between the sheets... things don't exactly go as planned. With a misunderstanding of international significance, all hell breaks loose in paradise. Can Victoria repair the damage that has been done? Will she truly help Jillian save her marriage?
