"All systems are primed and ready to go. I must seek and plunder."-Hayden
Screwed is a truly delightful read full of witty banter, clever dialogue, and likable characters. Like a package of pop rock candy it pops and gives you a shot of sugar to the system and leaves you floating on a sugar high!
Emery is a transplant to the big bad HOLLYWOOD! Upon moving into her new apartment complex, a neighbor warns her to stay away from the apartment complex "bad boy" Hayden. Not only is Hayden a well known "man-whore" but he also is her neighbor AND owns the apartment complex. Although Emery isn't looking for love, her attraction to the infamous bad boy is instant.
"Has my vagina now shame? There are probably cooties crawling up and down that overused flagpole."-Emery
Hayden recognizes the new tenant right away. Observing her being warned by a former flame, he immediately goes in for the kill. Despite the warning of his best friend and business partner, Hayden makes a "friend date" with Emory to show her around the town.
"Doesn't anyone think I can keep my dick in my pants? It only makes me want to prove them all wrong."-Hayden
Emery is all business. She is studying to pass her bar exam and wants nothing to do with Hayden. After some persistent behavior, Emery decides to take Hayden up on his offer. They begin to spend time together as friends. Before long the friendship blooms into more. Will Emery be able to tame this bad boy?
"Seriously, why would I take a chance on you and have my heart broken again?"-Emery
"Because I have a nine-inch cock and I know where the G-spot is."-Hayden
Screwed is simply hilarious! Although the neighbor "bad boy" falls in love with the good girl has been done before, I found this read to be unique because of the smooth tempo of the read and the well crafted text. I thoroughly enjoyed the main characters and the supporting characters really enhanced the story. Told in dual POV, we get a glimpse of the transformation taking place for both Emery and Hayden. Additionally, the steamy scenes were smokin' hot!!!! Although the build up was a bit long for my taste, when these two finally came together it was explosive. I thoroughly enjoyed the natural setting of the story and the way in which their relationship progressed. I only wish that there would have been more of them together at the end. Because together, it is just beautiful!
"And just like that, my heart soars. Her love feels so good. Like putting on your favorite T-shirt and lying in bed all day watching funny movies good."-Hayden
Overall, I recommend Screwed to anyone that is looking for a fun and sexy read. You will not be disappointed. Ms. Ryan brings a delectable blend of steam, likable characters, hilarious dialogue, and a great deal of heart in one beautiful package! This is one present I was happy to open up and enjoy!
