Title: Sleeping Together
Series: Perfect Drug #1
Author: Kitty Cook
Release Date: March 6, 2019
Vanessa Brown is having nightmares: about babies. Ever since her husband, Pete, mentioned he wanted to start a family, Ness has been trying to convince herself she’s stoked to spawn despite her inability to keep a cactus alive—and a decade-old secret she doesn’t like to remember. So when she catches her slacker-cool coworker, Altan Young, stealing sleeping medication from the pharmaceutical company they both work for, she decides to try the pilfered pills to finally find some rest.
But side effects of Morpheum include headaches, nausea, and possible mind melding—a fact Ness and Altan stumble upon when they share the same freaky sex dream. (Awkward.) Now these two colleagues are joined at the brain by night, experiencing dozens of fantastic sleep-staged adventures courtesy of a little imagination and a whole lot of drugs.
With the stress of being caught between the men of her literal and figurative dreams (not to mention her nightmare of a boss), Ness starts to enjoy snoozing more than being conscious—and the company of her work husband more than her real one. If she doesn’t wake up and smell the coffee soon, her dreamy escape could become a dirt nap in this feisty debut novel about the dangers of dreams' coming true.
"Kitty Cook’s SLEEPING TOGETHER uses forbidden love and a drug-fueled dreamscape to tactfully explore the psychological trauma caused by sexual assault, the balance between responsibility and passion, and the changeable nature of love and relationships. Through her exploration of the dangers of being a woman in a male dominant society, Cook turns a modern day love triangle into a thought-provoking story about the inner conflict that drives humanity to seek stability while avoiding stagnation. SLEEPING TOGETHER is a marriage between romance and thriller that will leave the reader with questions about the nature of love and a yearning for adventure."
