Synopsis from Goodreads
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 made an appearance through the series and I love both of them. I am so happy that Alyssa shipped them together
Although they have major chemistry, Jade and Kyle have never broached the subject afraid of destroying their friendship. They are very comfortable and honest with each other for the most part. However, they have both been shaped by past events and the burden of the secrets they carry. Insecurities stemming from their families tug at the heartstrings and ultimately cause barriers to a deeper relationship.
Neither Kyle or Jade see themselves clearly. They are both truly wonderful people and need to realise their own worth.
The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend is a very fast read touching on a lot of themes including tragedy, depression, guilt, regret and irrational blame. Ultimately, the foundations of any relationship whether romantic or platonic provide the support we need as individuals. The saying ‘stronger together’ would most definitely apply to Jade and Kyle.
