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.
I hate saying it, but, after reading all of the Hazards books, The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend is my least favorite in the series. It wasn’t that it wasn’t a good book. It was. There were just some choices the author made that I didn’t agree with.
In The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend, we finally get Kyle’s story. We’ve seen him have a lot of ups and downs in the women department over the series, so it’s fun for him to finally meet his match in Jade. They are friends from their radio station jobs, but things start to get complicated and sensual between them when Jade pretends to be Kyle’s girlfriend.
I adored the first half of this book. Kyle and Jade’s fake relationship was cute. The way they end up together is so much fun. They learned a lot about each other — both in and out of bed. I loved the connection they had.
Where the story started to lose me was after their pretend time was over. The story took a drastic turn, and it went from being cute and happy to pretty dang depressing. The tone was so different, it was almost like two different stories in one book. I didn’t like the scenario or how it played out. I get there had to be a conflict in the story. I just wish it hadn’t been that.
Overall, The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend was a good book. It just wasn’t as good as the rest of the series. If you’re a fan of the Hazards series, you’ll want to read it because you’ll want to see Kyle get his happily ever after.
