I just got this book and I like it so far. I mean I know she is very young to be writing a book, but I like it cause in a way I can relate to her. It shows you can be such a punk in your younger years but in the end everything works out. And that is why I love it.

This is such an easy read, but definitely entertaining. Kendra really opens us about her life experiences as well as life at the playboy mansion....where things weren't always sunshine and rainbows like the "Girls Next Door" series portrays. If you are interested in "Playboy" or the "Girls Next Door' then you will enjoy this book.

I've always liked Kendra and have watched every episode of Girls Next Door time and time again and she was always the most enjoyable. Whether she actually penned this herself or not, it was a great insight to what life may have been like at the mansion and also what it was like for Kendra growing up!

This book is so poorly written that I can't even believe it was published. Some people are so young who have memoirs nowadays, but sometimes the books are funny or the people behind the books are so amazing that it's definitely worth reading. This book reads like a valley girl is telling you this story of her childhood (full of sex and drugs), how hot her big fake boobs were, and how she loves money.

I wasted a day reading this. Don't let it happen to you.

HASH(0x9d60a4a4) out of 5 stars A Good Job On A Life Up To Now July 3 2010
By A. J. Colyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm going to be like many, perhaps most, of the readers of this book. I got hooked on The Girls Next Door TV series(GND), and that ultimately led me to Kendra's memoir. First, the good stuff. This is a pretty brave book; it's not full of fluff, simply feeding off of GND notoriety. Kendra opened her mental closet and let some of the dark goolies out; not everybody would be that willing to share their past lives to the extent that she has in this book. This is one of the strengths of the book. Additionally, her memoir is interesting for those who are curious about her behind the scenes relationship with Hugh Hefner, Bridget and Holly, as well as other members of the Playboy Mansion staff. There is a fair amount of information and discussion about the people, behind the scenes realities, and routine life during her 4+ years in residence. I am not going to spoil the read by commenting specifically about Kendra's references concerning sex; however, everyone knows that the Playboy Mansion is about sex. Sliding into Home does not ignore this. The author handles this with some common sense and maturity, but she gets the infomation into the book.

The book could have been improved by additional detail. Kendra participated in many trips within the GND series. It would have been very interesting to read about the behind the scenes preparations and activies during more of the various trips. More detail about the workings of the Mansion to include a number of the people involved as well as the commercial side of making GND would have made good reading.

Overall this is a good book. It has an honest feel to it, and is, to date, the best book that has come out of the modern Playboy Mansion/Girls Next Door genre. It is highly readable and hard to put down.

HASH(0x9bbddbb8) out of 5 stars The term "tell-all book" has new meaning July 8 2010
By ~Mary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
TMI-too much information-is a legitamate claim when it comes to Kendra's book Sliding Into Home. She gives many details that yes, you wanted to know, but after reading about it, you think "Oh God, I really did NOT need to know that." But the desire for details are as infectous as her laughter and you appreciate the fact that she does not sugar coat anything, blame anyone, or hide behind issues present in her family. She did it, she claims it, and I closed the book cheering that God allowed her to have the storybook ending she deserved. After all, the bad girl image was a cover for a girl full of energy and life and just needed the right direction to channel it in.

The fact she was not close to Bridget or Holly does not surprise me. The fact she didn't settle down over night after meeting Hank didn't raise an eyebrow. What does shock the reader is how candid she gets and does so in a matter of fact way-no hidden agendas. This is the best celebrity memoir I've read in a long time. If honesty sells, this should be a blockbuster.

HASH(0x9d21c690) out of 5 stars Thankful she made it home... July 10 2010
By Danamite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beginning of the book really went into detail about her "drug life" and becoming a stripper. She's good at keeping secret. Interesting to find out what really happened in the Mansion and her life with Hef. Loved reading about falling in love with Hank. I wasn't always a fan of the Girls Next Door, because the other girls really got on my nerves. However, as Kendra matured I became a fan of hers. I was hooked when she got her own show. Lots of details in the beginning of the book. I do think the end of the book is a bit rushed. I don't know if she didn't want to expose life as a mom or if that is her next book: From Party Girl to PTA mom. I wish she would've gone into more detail about life as a married couple and the changes that brought about, but I guess that is why people watch her show. That's my only disappointment. I'm just floored at what really happened at the Mansion, but in today's world Kendra is your typical All-American girl, because it's changed tremendously in our world today.

HASH(0x9f1c129c) out of 5 stars Not a good read May 1 2013
By SavaFiend76 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the worst "celebrity" (and I use that term loosely) memoirs I have ever read! Now don't get me wrong - I went into this with an open mind. But after reading, I feel this book made Kendra look self-absorbed, flaky, and flighty, and not at all genuine. She comes across as a total snob, and there are random stories thrown in that look like they were intentionally put there to try to make her look like she really isn't so shallow. The whole bit about her spending time with elderly folks when she was younger was such an obvious set-up for how she ended up spending time with Hef that it's ridiculous.

I found the section on her drug use disturbing, not because she was doing drugs at such a young age, but because she repeatedly says she was not an addict, she could quit anytime she wanted to, she just chose not to. Hello, that's the description of an addict! With the enormous amounts of drugs she was doing, she was definitely an addict, and the denial of that made the whole thing seem a lot less sincere.

I was also surprised that Kendra seems to scorn Hef, based on descriptions throughout the book. She basically puts up with the sex, mentions a few times how her mind is elsewhere when she "has" to do it. She scoffs at the 9 p.m. curfew and talks about how "boring" life is at the Mansion. She also acts surprised when she finds out she has a weekly allowance while living at the Mansion and assures the reader that she didn't go into it for the money. So let me get this straight: she isn't physically or sexually attracted to Hef, she is bored by Mansion life, but she's NOT in it for the money? Spare me!

Overall, I found this memoir boring and uninspired and it actually made me think a lot LESS of Kendra after I read it.

HASH(0x9ba062c4) out of 5 stars Watching Girls Next Door Made Me SOOOOOOOOOOO Curious- Lots Of Questions Answered! Aug. 11 2010
By ~*Just Me *~ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have to say that I loved watching the Girls Next Door and I had so many questions about their lifestyle and how did the girls families react to them dating Hugh Hefner and so on ( you really know what I wanted to know-- were they really sleeping with him and stuff like that )
In the beginning Bridget was my favorite- she just seemed so sweet- but soon after the 1st season Kendra and Bridget were both my favorite (Holly kinda rubbed me the wrong way for some reason)
Anyway, those questions were really answered-- well the situations with Kendra anyway.
She has told us the story of her life- her REAL life and not what some producers wanted her to be portrayed as.
She gives details of situations in her life that normally a female would be too embarrassed or ashamed to tell.
She has had a difficult life in the past and now things just seem to keep getting better for her.
I really enjoyed the book, some parts of the book were kind of slow but I still couldnt put the book down- I read it in one sitting (how sad is that?!?!) and I wish there was a follow up-- not really sure what else could be said in that book so soon because she really touches on all ages of her life - up until she had her son-
Hank truely seems to love her and they make a beautiful family, I wish her nothing but the best and I am so glad she came out with the juicy details of the mansion life and life as one of Hef's Girlfriends (I heard before the book was released - I preordered- that it gave details of what goes on there and if it didnt provide that info I probably wouldnt have bought the book)
So, I got my questions answered and then some,
THANK YOU KENDRA FOR BEING HONEST AND OPEN WITH YOUR LIFE STORY!!
