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.


Jade and Kyle have watched their friends find their happy ever after now it’s their turn. They both are attracted to each other and over the last six months they have become close friends. Kyle’s family is having a get together and he’s been telling them this whole time that he had a girlfriend so if he doesn’t bring one than his mother will start fixing him up. Kyle decides to ask Jade to go along with him as his girlfriend for the week so that he can fool the family. Jade knows she should but she equally attracted to Kyle so they both embark on a week that will change their relationship.

The chemistry between the two is sizzling in the hotel room as the two connect on a whole new level. While neither one wants it to end nor get awkward they both decide to take it slow after returning from the weeklong vacation. Only Kyle isn’t willing to let her go back to her life, and Jade is just as much in love with him. Together they fall in love finding exactly what they needed to heal their tragic broken pasts and change the futures. When tragedy strikes their relationship will be tested.

I’ve been waiting for Jade to get her happy ever after since things didn't work out with Len the drummer. I think Kyle was the perfect choice for after all they both are music fans and thanks to her show with Cara it's how they came to be friends. We didn’t see the girls from the prior books as much as we have in the others but they are still making cameo appearances. We did get a little more of Savannah and Glen from the prior book which I enjoyed.

The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend is the 5th installment of the Hazards series telling Jade and Kyles story. I’ve loved Jade from when she was Mallory’s little sister and the way she connected with Cara in the 3rd book just sealed a spot in my heart. The characters are some of my favorites they are those you can’t help connecting with and being captivated by their story. I didn’t read the synopsis before starting the story so it was a surprise right from the start I enjoyed the twists and learning about Jades past. The author did a beautiful job creating another fantastic story it’s well written flowing along smoothly from start to finish. I loved every moment of the book finishing it in one after noon it was impossible to put down because I had to know that it would all work out. I love the Hazards series and hope to see more of them maybe a wedding or two. While this book is hot and steamy it’s tastefully done and doesn't overwhelm the story which I enjoyed.
