Warning: Sleeping with a friend might change your life forever.
Sleeping with Kyle was never in the plans. Pretending to be his girlfriend was one thing, but letting our relationship become anything but platonic was another. The problem with mixing friendship with sex is that inevitably feelings get involved, and when that happens there’s no turning back.
When Kyle’s life fell apart around him, I needed to help, but doing that meant opening myself up to the most terrifying thing in the world—falling in love.
The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend follows the story of Kyle and Jade. Jade has always had a crush on Kyle, but never planned on acting on it. One night, a friendly conversation gave way to an unlikely proposition, one that Jade never planned on accepting. As fate would have it, things are about to get more interesting for Kyle and Jade.Thanks to Kyle’s brothers meddling, Kyle is now forced to vacation with his family and bring his girlfriend along. The only problem, he doesn’t have one. He’s always had more than friendly feelings for Jade, so she is the perfect person to ask to be his fake girlfriend. However, pretending to be in a relationship when real feelings are involved is a lot harder than it seems. Will Kyle and Jade give into their feelings and take a chance on building something real? And when tragedy strikes, will Kyle lean on Jade or push her away? Will they open themselves up to the love that is right in front of them or will they be over quicker than they started??
The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend was such a great read. The idea of a pretend relationship was so fun. This story was well written and you could feel the chemistry between Kyle and Jade from the beginning. It was so fun watching the two of them interact. I loved their banter. They connected so easily together. I just couldn’t wait to see where their relationship would go. You knew it would only be a matter of time before they both realized that they were destined to be more than just friends and it was so great watching them fall.
Jade was not an easy sell for pursuing a relationship. She had been hurt deeply in the past and poor Kyle had to work hard to make her see that he was worth taking a chance on and that he would protect her feelings. Kyle was a great guy. He was funny, and charming. You could tell that he cared deeply for his family, even if they drove him nuts. And Jade brought out a side of Kyle that no one really had seen. He just radiated happiness when she was around.
The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend was a quick and enjoyable read for me.The characters were fun and easy to connect with. I just adored Kyle’s mom. She was so sweet and so accepting. This book made me laugh, smile, swoon and there were a couple of moments that just broke my heart. This book had the perfect balance of humor, romance and angst. An overall, really great read.
