EXES WITH BENEFITS: is a second chance full-length stand-alone romance novel by Nicole Williams. In this we meet Canaan Ford and his wife Maggie. 

With a turbulent rocky relationship newly wed Maggie reaches the hard decision to walk away from her marriage to her childhood sweetheart Canaan and the only boy she'd ever loved. But his boozing and fighting and coming home with scars and scrapes and her playing nurse maid had taken it’s toll on Maggie and she’d finally decided enough was enough. And hightailed it to Chicago. 

We were a couple of kids playing house. We should have known better than to think we could make a marriage work at eighteen. 

When she left him and her small town of Farmington behind her she swore she’d never be back, coming back only lasted her five years. Only due to her grandmothers death is she setting foot back on home land territory. She's not only come home to bury her eighty-five year old Grandmother she'd also come with divorce papers in hand. 

Canaan Ford wasn't just the boy who'd been my friend when I needed one. He wasn't just the first boy I'd kissed and fallen in love with. He was the man who, with just one touch, could turn me on in such a way I became an unknowing slave to his any whim. 

The very day she arrives back in town is the very day she comes face to face with Caanan. It's been five years since she'd last seen him. The handsome son of a bitch had somehow gotten even better looking. . He swears he's changed and he begs her to give him one month, just one month to prove to her that he has. Since she waked out on their marriage, he's stopped his boozing and fighting and has slowly made himself into a better man, a better man for her, the love of his life. 

"One month. Give me one month to show you I'm the man who deserved to marry you."
"What happens if at the end of the month I'm not convinced? If I haven't fallen madly in love with you again, like you're convinced I'm about to."
"Then I sign your damn divorce papers." 

The title for this is really misleading, it suggests that there is an arrangement of sexual favours between the two and that is not the case at all. All in all I really really enjoyed this book, even after five years you could feel the love oozing off the pages between these two star crossed lovers, and like the next person I have such a weakness for second chance romances and this was no different, this was probably one of my favourite ones. Get ready to succumb under Nicole Williams spell as you fall in love with these characters, their story, their past, and like me you'll claim Canaan as your very own bookboyfriend. I was so moved by their story, tears and happiness as they walked down memory lane will always leave a soft spot in my heart for these two, no two characters were made for each other like these two.

***He wants a second chance. I want a divorce. To get what I want, I’ll have to give him what he does.***

From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Nicole Williams:

The only benefit I want from my ex is a divorce. 

We got married for all the wrong reasons. The one thing we got right was our separation. I should have known better than to think I could bet on forever with a guy like Canaan Ford. Everything about him screamed impermanent, from his wild eyes to his restless soul. 

When I left him and the small town I’d spent my whole life in, I swore I’d never go back. Never only turned out to be five years. Canaan claims he’s changed, but he hasn’t—same knowing smile, same rough demeanour, same body crafted from sin and sinew. And yet, something is different. He thinks this is his chance for redemption. My disagreement comes in the form of divorce papers dropped in his lap. He refuses to sign them. Unless . . .

He wants a month to prove himself to me—that’s his offer. One month to make me fall in love with him again and if I don’t, he’ll sign the papers. As much as I want to say no, I agree. I can suffer my ex for a short amount of time if that’s what it takes to be free of him once and for all. I fell for him once; I won’t make that same mistake twice. 

He says we’re not over. I say we were over before we got started. Only one of us can be right, and I can’t let it be him.
