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.

My Review

I know when I pick up a book from Alyssa Rose Ivy that the day is about to get even brighter.  I have been following her books for several years, and have never been disappointed with her writing.  Kyle and Jade’s story is no exception to this fact.

Kyle and Jade are friends and find a level of comfort in expressing themselves with each other. They have become familiar with each other’s professional likes and dislikes, and are able to open up with one another in a way that unlocks the door to possibilities and potentials. 


Her name is so fitting.  Jaded by love. She wonders if she will ever have a relationship that is meaningful. If she can’t, she doesn’t want to miss out on any of the other benefits that come with it.  She is a carefree young lady who is full of life and ready to explore her potentials.


He’s not ready for a relationship with just anyone, but there is someone; he feels this may be out of the question. His life hasn’t made room for serious relationships. It’s always been easier to have surface liaisons. 

“Now wasn’t the time to overanalyze things. Sometimes it was better to feel than to think.”

Friendships can cost at times, and our main characters give us a unique opportunity to explore this.  Through each interaction and thought, we find ourselves falling further in love with this duo as we learn about about their personal and professional lives, their families, and their idiosyncrasies. 

“That’s all I wanted from you. Your love and your heart.”

Having already gotten a taste of these quirky and lovable characters, I was pretty much schoolgirl giddy throughout the entire book. It was charming, seductive, hilarious, and sweet. Alyssa Rose Ivy’s writing style allowed the story to come to life in such a way that I couldn’t put it down. My eyes could not read fast enough and Kindle finger could not flip quick enough.  I loved that Jade and Kyle had distinct personalities, yet shared so many commonalities that continually drew them to one another.  It was also great to catch up with some of the characters that have been present in previous books in the series.  This was without a doubt my favorite Hazards read, and I look forward to many more.
