Luke Young


Luke Young is the Kindle-bestselling author of the Friends With...Benefits series as well as the novel Shrinkage.

Young's Friends With...Benefits novels are filled with passion, longing, comedy, and, yes, sex. His relationship comedies feature strong, sexy female characters -- women who seize every opportunity for fun and don't let a little thing like age stand in the way of love or desire. In each book Young sets different wheels in motion, applying his comedic touch and pitch-perfect ear for playful couples' banter. The result is warm, funny, sexy storytelling at its best.

Young got his start writing screenplays, which earned the praise of contest judges while never quite making it to the "green light." He adapted his second screenplay into a novel and found himself hooked on the new form. Since then, he's released five novels, one novella, and one short story.

Young's prolific nature is a gift to fans across the globe who have enthusiastically embraced the Friends With...Benefits series. This fan support has driven the books up the Kindle bestseller lists. If you enjoy romance, sex, and unexpected hilarity, you will love Young's books.
