The long-awaited next chapter in the Friends with Benefits series, Friends with Extra Benefits, is part romantic suspense, part legal thriller, part medical drama, part steamy erotic romp, and part screwball comedy. Who will prevail in the Brookhart v. Grayson trial? Will Victoria have a boy or a girl, and will she finally find happiness? Will Rob figure out what the hell is going on with his mysterious and unstable boss, and will Brian find a career?
"True love prevails"
Jillian Grayson is a disillusioned divorcée and best-selling romance novelist who suddenly can't write a chapter without her hunky male heartthrob suffering ED, an STD, or even worse. Brian Nash is a tennis-obsessed college senior who's unlucky in love and the roommate and best friend of Jillian's son, Rob. When Rob brings Brian home for Spring Break, and Brian meets the surprisingly young and tennis passionate Jillian, their shared interest quickly develops into an intense mutual attraction.
For best-selling romance novelist Jillian Grayson, writer's block is a thing of the past now that her clandestine relationship with her son's best friend, Brian Nash, has lifted her out of a postdivorce funk. The prospect of breaking the news to her son seems daunting, but it's nothing compared to the nightmare of meeting Brian's superstrict, off-the-wall, disapproving parents.
As Jillian and Brian's destination wedding date nears, Jillian's just-released novel's complicated success threatens to destroy their big day. While Rob's new job grows extraordinarily more mysterious, Brian's becomes infinitely more unfulfilling, and both struggle to find the answers. Victoria finds it more and more difficult to hide her secrets, and when they are finally exposed there is no shortage of collateral damage. When thoughts are revealed, will the wedding be ruined?
"Never a dull moment"
When two very different couples, one who's just getting started and one who's apparently just getting finished, meet on a cruise, the better halves become fast friends. While Victoria Wilde is sexually adventurous and getting back on track in her quest of living life to the fullest, Jillian Grayson is reserved and struggling to hold on to a nearly 20-year marriage that's 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.
"Friends with fun"
As Jim and Victoria learn to live together and raise their new baby, Jillian and Brian embark on a challenging and hilarious struggle to conceive one of their own. Getting pregnant seems like a piece of cake compared to what's involved in bringing Jillian's novel to the big screen as an unwelcome guest and an ill-advised celebrity free pass complicate matters immensely.
When newlyweds Jim and Victoria return from their Vegas wedding, Victoria dives full swing back into her sex therapy practice. With the addition of a new, let's call him, unique client along with a couple of old surprise visitors, there is never a dull moment in the naughty professional's home office. While Brian and Jillian are in full expectant parent mode, and with twins no less, Jillian's movie opens to great success.
"Risky and exciting"
