Synopsis: I have one rule: Don’t shit where you eat. 
Several of the women in the condo complex I own would love some one-on-one playtime, and why wouldn’t they? I’m young, fit, attractive, and loaded. Not to mention I’m packing a sizable bulge below the belt. It’s a combination that drops panties on a regular basis.
Yay, me, right? 
But my cock, troublemaker that he is, has been confined to my trousers by my business partner. A concession I agreed to, and one that’s never been hard to enforce until Emery moves in across the hall. She’s smart, young, determined, and sexy as hell. I want a taste. I won’t stop until I’m buried deep inside the succulent new-in-town brunette.
After being warned about my past, she does her best to steer clear, but I’m about to show her that underneath it all, I’m a guy with a heart of gold and a cock of steel.
My name is Hayden Oliver, and this is my story.

SCREWED is standalone romantic comedy by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan.

Review : 4 Stars A few words that sum up author Kendall Ryan’s latest release – Screwed, are: Sexy, sweet, funny and highly entertaining. These words often come to mind after reading a book from this author. She is talented and keeps the kinds of books I love coming.

I’ve read a few of Kendall’s books, and thankfully I have a few more yet to read but with Screwed I knew I had to jump on this one as soon as I could get my hands on it. The story, characters and writing didn’t let me down and I devoured it in one sitting!

There’s a rich playboy who lets his *cough* little head *cough* run the show more often than not. It can get him into trouble when it comes to the tenants within the properties he owns with his best friend. When said best friend gives him an ultimatum, a dare of sorts Hayden tries for the first time in his life to have a strictly platonic relationship with a woman. 

This is where the sweet and funny comes into things, because the woman he chooses just might test his limits beyond what he’s capable of. The heroine, Emery and Hayden kept me entertained from beginning to end. She’s smart, has a strong work ethic, just as Hayden does and she keeps him on his toes. 

The heat is there simmering under the surface but they do a great job keeping it at bay for something I believe they each found just at the right time – friendship. With that heat simmering it gives the characters a chance to work on the friendship without taking things to the next level. The story builds right from the start and is sweet as these two navigate their relationship that’s being built from the ground up. BUT don’t be fooled! As a reader you get glimpses as to what could be between them and it’s just keeps building and building and you just know they are going to burn up the pages when they finally give in. 

These characters also have their own issues, which made me worry because for Hayden you didn’t know exactly what was the driving force for so many of his relationship choices and while I didn’t guess the whole story I did figure out pieces. It didn’t take away from the story, which was great but it did add a touch of seriousness to such a light, fun, sweet and sexy read.

In the end I loved it. As I’ve mentioned I’m a huge fan of this author and have loved everything I’ve read from her at this point. She’s without a doubt one of my go-to authors and I’ll forever purchase whatever she writes because she never lets me down.

If you’re looking for a great contemporary read with characters who you’ll love, snag this one and give it a read. You won’t be disappointed! And one thing I can’t wait to read Monster Prick, which is out in November of this year. It’s a standalone however it features characters we’ve met in Screwed. It’s going to be EPIC and I can’t wait!!! So go and read this one! You’ll love it, promise!
