best friends, Chase and Lydia, who became lovers and then became nothing to each other because of Lydia s pride and ambitions Sleeping with Mr Sexy was a good and sentimentally sweet story However, there were some challenges that kept it from being a great story for me One primarily being Lydia who was very irritating She could have had Chase freely when they were in college but never pursued a relationship with him but the minute he shows interest in someone else she becomes insanely jealous and tries to stake her claim Her leaving like a thief in the night and ignoring his texts didn t sit well with me She treated him like he was the one who did something wrong when she was the one in complete fault I seriously wanted to punch her in her throat..hard I liked Chase and thought that he was a stand up guy in spite of Lydia s foolishness.The second reason the story did not rate higher than three stars for me was because of the haphazard time transitions One minute you re in the present and the next you re in the past with no obvious warning In one paragraph the reader could be in the past and present Very disturbing to the fluidity of the story The story would have been a solid four stars in the transitions were smoother.Overall, Sleeping with Mr Sexy was a quick read that was cute and sweet but leaves no lasting impression.Reading Time 45 minutesVisit The BookChick
