Meredith Schorr Tour
by Meredith Schorr
GENRE: Romantic Comedy
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.
He clinked his glass against mine. “Cheers.”
I took the shot and grimaced from the strength before noting the serious expression on Ryan’s face. “Everything all right?”
He cleared his throat. “Today was fun.”
“So much fun,” I agreed.
Ryan scratched at his closely cut dark hair. “I was wondering if you’d like to do it again sometime. But showered and wearing something besides running clothes.”
I sat up straight in my chair. “You mean, like a date?”
He smiled. “Exactly like one.”
My mouth dropped open as my mind scrambled for a response. From the easy, tension-free banter we’d exchanged, not to mention my ability to maintain my appetite in his company, I hadn’t seen this coming.
“If you’re not interested, no worries. You’re cute, we get along great. Can’t blame a guy for asking.”
When I realized I was keeping the poor guy hanging, I shook my head vigorously. “It’s not you, Ryan. Honestly. There’s this guy I’m sort of seeing.”
The fair skin on his neck turned red. “Oh, I didn’t realize you had a boyfriend. I’m sorry.”
I bit my lip. “He’s not technically my boyfriend. It’s really early stages, but we’ve known each other since college and I feel like I should give it a chance before I date anyone else. “Do you understand?” I crossed my fingers he wouldn’t be insulted. He was the first real friend I’d met at runner’s group and I didn’t want anything to ruin it.
“Of course I understand. Friends?”
I blew out a sigh of relief and smiled. “Friends.”
