Just Friends With Benefits
When a friend urges Stephanie Cohen not to put all her eggs in one bastard, the advice falls on deaf ears. Stephanie’s college crush on Craig Hille has been awakened thirteen years later as if soaked in a can of Red Bull, and she is determined not to let the guy who got away once, get away twice.
Stephanie, a thirty-two-year-old paralegal from Washington, D.C., is a seventies and eighties television trivia buff who can recite the starting lineup of the New York Yankees and go beer for beer with the guys. And despite her failure to get married and pro-create prior to entering her thirties, she has so far managed to keep her overbearing mother from sticking her head in the oven. Just Friends with Benefits is the humorous story of Stephanie’s pursuit of love, her adventures in friendship, and her journey to discover what really matters.
“How did you end things?”
“He stayed over. I asked if he wanted to go out again the next night, but he had to work late. He did tell me to convince my firm to send me back soon though. I even worked a possible transfer to the New York City office into conversation with some of the partners just in case.”
Suzanne narrowed her eyes. “Don’t you think you’re getting ahead of yourself?”
“I have no intention of relocating now, but…” I smiled sheepishly. “You never know.”
She exhaled loudly. “This all sounds great, but please manage your expectations. Before you put in for a transfer, make sure you’re on the same page. Have you heard from him since you’ve been back?”
“No, but Eric and Jess are having a New Year’s Eve party at their house in Philadelphia. He was invited and I’m praying he’ll be there so we can hang out again. I know hooking up once does not a relationship make, but if it happens a second time, it means our interest is mutual and we can take it from there. Right?” I desperately wanted Suzanne to share my enthusiasm.
Tapping her perfectly manicured pointer finger on the table, Suzanne said, “You know what I always say?”
I bit my lip. “What’s that?”
“Don’t put all your eggs in one bastard.”
