He'll complicate all her plans...

Amy Morrison is supposed to be at her wedding. But when her husband-to-be jilts her at the altar, a distraught Amy runs to the only place she feels safe—her office. Besides, everyone who works on her floor is at her wedding...except him. Dax Harris. Playboy, executive, and Amy's official office enemy.

While he and Amy don't see eye-to-eye on the best of days, Dax can't help but feel badly when he sees Amy mid-meltdown. Next thing he knows, he's gotten her good and drunk, and they're making out like two teenagers. And since neither of them wants anything serious, why shouldn't they be frenemies-with-benefits? Because there is no possible way they could ever fall for each other...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fun and sexy read! While running away from being jilted at the altar, Amy Morrison runs into Dax Harrison, the last person she'd want to see right now. Amy and Dax are office enemies. He feels sorry for her so he takes her to a bar to drown her sorrows. The more time they spend together, the closer they get. These two have vowed to want nothing serious from anyone right now. When they're done having "fun" together, can these two walk away with their hearts intact? This is a fun and very sexy contemporary romance. The sexual tension is so thick, you can cut it with a knife. Amy and Dax have unique but wonderful personalities as well as the minor characters in this book. I very much enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait to read more from this fantastic author. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great book about enemies turning to lovers! When you are having the worst day of your life and you realize you have no one to call or anywhere else to go, sometimes life hands you the unexpected. Jenny Holiday has created a story that really sucks you in from the beginning (or the blurb, if you are like me) and keeps you riveted until the end. Sleeping with Her Enemy was an unexpected gem! While friends to lovers may be my favorite book trope, the idea of two people that can't get along without arguing turning into friends, then lovers was pretty spectacular! Sleeping with Her Enemy is book #2 in the 49th floor series (Saving the Ceo is book #1), you can read it as a stand alone book, like I did and have no issues feeling out of the loop. Since I didn't read book one, I will be going back to see if we get more of the "enemy" factor shown between Amy and Dax and because that is all that is left on Jenny Holiday's back list (and I need more of her writing!). Jenny Holiday does a great job setting up the scene, getting the reader invested in Amy's character and creating witty banter between her and Dax. The characters in this book were not what you expect and had way more depth and personality than your typical "CEO-co-worker" trope. I loved Dax! He was like a breath of fresh air! I just wish we would have gotten more insight into his point of view during all this but I am very pleased with what we did get. Dax isn't your typical alpha CEO that has a superiority complex. From the start of the book I was expected to dislike him like Amy and have to be "won" over by him. I was wrong. Jenny Holiday made him layered, with a strong sense of playfulness and loyalties to loved ones. Dax was a great male lead with his patience and inner struggle to keep it just friends with Amy. Then we have Amy. Poor Amy was a mess when we meet her and the reader gets to watch her rebuild herself while learning what she thought she needed in life might not be something she can plan. I liked Amy's character, she was strong, independent but at the same time struggling to find what her heart actually wanted. Sleeping with Her Enemy was a great book, this was my first book by Jenny Holiday and I will definitely be going back to read Saving the CEO and watching for what else she writes. I loved her style of storytelling, letting the characters slide into love by putting down their habits of snarky zingers to become friends and then letting them "fall". The pacing was great, the story keeps you turning pages and ignoring the outside world until you are done and the sparks-heat will reddened a few cheeks for sure! If you are looking for a great story about two people realizing what they have always wanted was right in front of them, then Sleeping with Her Enemy needs to get in your e-reader! If you are a fan of Jenny Holiday, I think you will love Amy and Dax's story and getting up to date on all the happenings on the 49th floor. I can't wait to read more from this author, even if she did leave me craving Beef Stroganoff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Loved this story!! A fantastic enemies to lovers story that is well written and the chemistry between the characters jumps off the page! Amy Morrison and Dax Harris have been office enemies from day one but when Amy is jilted at the altar and runs to her office to hide, Dax can't not be kind to her. From that day on, one hilarious event after the next, their relationship changes and it's a fantastic journey. I highly recommend this one to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun enemies to lovers story! This fun sexy romance is the story of Amy and Dax. Jilted on the day of her wedding (to a man she realizes she should never have agreed to marry in the first place), Amy hides out in her office only to encounter Dax, her nemesis, the one who pushes all her buttons. But even Dax can't abandon a woman in dire straits and when he suggests a drink or two to ease the pain and embarrassment they find themselves in a startlingly new position - one where a buried sexual attraction lets loose along with their inhibitions. Soon a secret sex-only fling ensues, one where they both find that perhaps their animosity towards each other has been masking some deeper emotions. Will they be able to admit the truth to each other? I loved this story! The premise was great - Dax and Amy can't stand each other, but when push comes to shove Dax's true chivalrous nature comes out. Both characters were really likeable, friendly and spirited. The witty banter and humorous dialogue between them sparks the sexual attraction they feel for each other and the love scenes between them are packed with heat and emotion. When they discover that they actually like spending time together, on top of the great sex, it's a wake up call for both of them - in particular for Dax who has valued his playboy ways and had no plans to give them up - until Amy makes him rethink his life goals. Besides the fun back and forth of their relationship, I really liked the part that Dax's family played in the story. It was interesting to highlight the cultural differences of Dax as a half Asian-half Caucasian hero and his relationship with his mom was really sweet. His whole family definitely added to the entertainment value of the story. There was just so much to enjoy about this tale, from the hot sex to the deeper emotions as Dax and Amy fall for each other. Super fun read, and highly recommended. 5 stars!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book. Jenny Holiday is a new author for me. I have never read a book by her before. That is about to change. Amy and Dax don't get along at all. They get to each other like no one else. Could it be the tension is caused by feelings neither want to acknowledge? An ARC of Sleeping with Her Enemy was given to me for my honest viewpoint. Enjoyable book where frenemies discover that there can be more. If they give it a chance.
