Friends without Benefits by Penny Reid (Audiobook)

Narrated by Devra Woodward

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ The longing and tension between Nico and Elizabeth.. so good. The narrator took a bit for me to get used to as she has a very lazy raspy voice for Nico, but it works and I ended up quite enjoying it.

LOVED when Nico speaks Italian to her. Also, as I am one of those people who loves when bits of other languages are used in the books, but also immediately have to go look up the translation...I loved the fact that I had bought the kindle version along with the audible version because Ms.Reid included the translations of what he said in the written form.  - Perfection!

Also she had an “open door version and a closed door version of the same scene” which allowed the reader to choose which version they wanted to read. I listened to both cause it was great each time!

Wonder if Dan the security guard - gets a story. I really liked him. He didn't have a huge part.. but he stuck with me.

The Blurb:

Friends Without Benefits can be read as a standalone, is a full length 120k word novel, and is book#2 in the Knitting in the City Series. 

There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Finney: 1) She suffers from severe sarcastic syndrome, especially when she's unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her like Nico Manganiello, and 3) She knows how to knit. 

Elizabeth Finney is almost always right about everything: the musical merits of boy bands are undervalued by society, “benefits” with human Ken dolls are better without friendship, and the sun has set on her once-in-a-lifetime chance for true love. But when Elizabeth’s plans for benefits without friendship are disarmed by the irritatingly charismatic and chauvinistic Nico Manganiello- her former nemesis- she finds herself struggling to maintain the electric fence around her heart while avoiding electrocution or, worse, falling in love.
