In Friends with Benefits the girls from The Nannies are back and ready for some more adventuresor are they? Lydia, ever the schemer has a plan to get rich quick by finding good nannies for rich clients. The problem? Finding good nannies. She quickly learns that you cant always judge a book by its cover. Shes also beset on every side from her aunts partner, who wants to keep the kids on an ultra-strict schedule. Every time she seems to be making progress with them (like getting them to open up and be happy), Anya is there to shut her down.

Then theres Esme. Shes still torn between two boys and two worlds. Should she try to make everything up to Junior? Or is what she has with the gorgeous Jonathan worth the risk? And is Jonathan the nice guy&or what? Esmes worst problem is really an internal one. Shes really just not sure what she wants and it shows.

Kiley is the brave soul, trying to keep on top of Platinums crazy kids and on Platinums good side (is there one?) at the same time. With the drugged-out rock star ready to fire anyone at a moments notice (or to try and seduce their boyfriends), Kiley has a real mess on her hands. And underneath their ultra-cool exteriors, Platinums kids really just need a mom.

While I enjoyed the first Nannies book a bit more, this one has its merits as well and will keep readers on their toes as they turn the pages to find out what crazy thing will happen next. And the ending leaves you wanting more, especially with Kileys situation (I wont tell you what happens; thatd spoil it for you). Recommended for readers aged 14 and up.
