Although I did enjoy the story, I struggled through reading parts of it. I think the biggest thing that held me back was some of the dialog between the characters. It is written in the dialect that the characters would be using and since I'm not use to it, it made it difficult for me to understand. It took a little while, but eventually I was able to read without feeling like I had to slow down to figure out what was being said. Although I've read other racially diverse books, this is the first that was written in a way that I would expect those from southern Florida to speak. I hope this isn't coming across as discriminatory because it is not meant to be. The first book with written with a southern accent was difficult for me to read too. Being that I'm from rural PA, it's just something I'm not used to.

Once I got past that, I was able to enjoy the story. I loved the racial diversity in the book. It put a different edge to the characters. Teddy was a very complex person. I wanted to understand why she did the things she did. I knew there had to be something that she was keeping from everyone. I kept reading until I was able to understand her character.

Although it took a little longer to read than most books this size, it was worth the time and effort.

I don't even know how to begin this review, F*THS (Friends That Have Sex) was so remarkable. A piece of New Adult sorely needed to remind me of why I love NA.

F*THS revolves around our Afro-Cuban heroine, Teddy, who has been battling cancer and has to get chemotherapy again. The book is dual POV (our hero Asher being white and deliciously tattooed/pierced), but the story is Teddy's. Teddy who is trying to live as full of a life as she can because the cancer keeps coming back, Teddy who can't handle a romantic relationship with anyone because of all her issues, Teddy who wants to know her place in the world.

This book is not really a romance, but a sort-of love triangle is the cause of tension between Teddy and Asher. They start out just getting high and playing games and having sex with each other, but they both place barriers up because of Teddy's on-and-off-again relationship with Asher's best friend Reggie.

Teddy and Asher live lives outside of each other, and one of the more remarkable parts of the book is how every side character is noticeably living their own story and has a distinct personality. Even characters who are mentioned through text messages only are full of life (like the members of Teddy's cancer support group, including a genderfluid 40-something parent in remission for decades and a 15-year-old who is likely not going to survive his battle with leukemia). Teddy and Asher both express sexual attraction for different genders, and they're hooking up with other people when they aren't with each other.

Reggie. Ugh, he's so funny. I think we all have a friend like Reggie, who can't really get it together, has a good heart but makes all the wrong choices and is self-centered at the end of the day.

There were a lot of great things about this book, its honesty, the character growth, the love—and the sex, yet overall, I really liked that the characters were able to remind me of my self, my friends, and parts of college I forgot about.

With the fluidity perspective (which best emulates the social conducts today) on the complicated borders of intimacy and relationships, I found that I was able to enjoy the book and story even more.

Teddy’s character is a seductive, sassy, tough-as-nails, Afro-Latina who is always bluntly honest with the people in her life. Her character takes advantage of each moment, day and breath of freedom she is able to get due to her condition.

As someone who has lost two people to breast cancer in three and a half years, I whole heartedly understand Teddy’s “give no fs” attitude and determination to live her life by her own rules as the lymphoma lurks in the shadows, waiting to steal what little control and freedom she has in her life.

Really loved that Teddy doesn’t just talk about the things she wants to do or who she wants to be with and when she wants to be with them. Teddy’s character (unforgivingly, and rightly, so) takes action, fully exercising her right to be explorative and adventurous with her coitus ;-)

Enter, Asher. The tall, tattooed, pieced sk8ter-boy and just as promiscuously amped as Teddy. And let me just tell you, sparks will fly between these two…then the flames from those sparks will ignite and before you know it, you’ll be completely engulfed, but that’s okay. I guarantee you won’t even care that you’re on fire, you’ll just want more. (this analogy got away from me a bit, but who cares?!

I understand there are two parts to this story but at this time have only read this book.

Took me a while to get in to the rhythm of things and I do feel the romance skews toward a younger audience but I was entertained when reading it, for the most part. Teddy is an intriguing female protagonist but I feel like I need to read book two to get a better handle on her character whereas Asher's character I clicked with quickly. He's a tattooed slacker personality with simple needs and a good heart but is by far the most honest character in the story. Reggie I grew tired of early in the story with his games and shallowness.

There's a lot of back and forth & half-finished truths that I expect to be resolved in book two. That said, it's an entertaining book with a cliffhanger, so I would suggest getting both at once or reading back to back.
