Sleeping with the Frenemy is a lesbian retelling of the 1991 film, Sleeping with the Enemy, starring Julia Roberts. For those unfamiliar with the story, it involves a wife’s escape from an abusive husband by faking her own death. In Ms. Grant’s version, we witness the extremely HOT yet harmful relationship between Deborah and Genevieve. The women have been married for 5 years, and at first it appears they have a wonderful relationship and ideal life. Yet as the story progresses, we witness the extent to which Gen abuses and controls Deborah. Similar to the movie, Deborah escapes the marriage by faking her death and moving to a small town far away. However, soon enough Gen finds out that Deborah has betrayed her and plots her revenge.

The story reads well and moves at a good pace. Even though I saw the movie (many years ago), I still experienced a suspenseful thrill. Overall, Sleeping with the Frenemy is a good read, and although I’m not a huge contemporary romance fan, I found the book enjoyable. The story is familiar but with enough changes to make it fresh and remain suspenseful.
