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.
Hayden Oliver….. Let’s say that name again HAYDEN OLIVER. If you look under up the word Screwed in the Dictionary, you will certainly find only a two word definition: Hayden Oliver.
This book delivered in a serious way! Totally left me Screwed, that’s for sure. Why? Well simply because I am greedy and I want more of all things Hayden Oliver.
Kendall once again had me reading non-stop through yet another book. Screwed was witty, humorous, oh so sexy and downright delicious. It is one of those books that once you pick it up you will. Not. Put. It. Down. Till you finish.
Hayden Oliver is a successful property owner. The problem you ask? Well he doesn’t understand that his tenants shouldn’t take residency in his pants. He makes Melrose Place look tame compared to the way he has been living it up. He certainly leaves an uproar in his wake because he doesn’t want to settle down. His business partner, Hudson finally tells him to tuck the woman eater away and leave it there or else. This smart, gorgeous, all consuming male is going to have a hard time keeping his promise.
Emery has just moved into one of Hayden’s complexes. Moving to get to try get ahead in a new law firm, she has no time for anything but work and studying. She especially has no time for men. She’s sworn them off after being hurt by her last relationship. Only problem is, she didn’t know what she was in for when Hayden strolled up to introduce herself.
I absolutely loved this book. Hayden is one sexy, go –getter of a man. He doesn’t give up, that is for sure. Emery is so sweet and strong. The things Hayden would do to get her attention, had me laughing so hard my stomach hurt. The banter between these two was crazy! Friends only. That’s what they agreed to. But the sexual tension between these two is OFF THE CHARTS! Staying in a friend’s only status will be hard. Trying to ever go the more than friends route even harder when both have pasts that left them a little broken.
You will certainly laugh, you will swoon, your heart will hurt a little but most importantly you will fall in love with these two. Let me also bring up Hudson (Business Partner and best friend to Hayden). That man has a story to tell and I can’t wait for Kendall to give it to us!
Another 5 Star read from Kendall Ryan. She continues to deliver swoon-worthy, off the charts hot reads. Drop what you are doing and take the chance to be completely utterly SCREWED!

“Tell me more about you,” Emery asks, leaning in toward me.
“What do you want to know?”
“Enlighten me.” She shrugs.
Leaning back in my seat, I cross my ankles. “My job is pretty much my life, and I love what I do. Taking an old rundown building and turning it into luxury units that rent for top dollar is awesome. It never gets old. I love seeing the transformations.”
“That’s amazing.” She nods. “What else … surely there has to be more to you than just work.”
“You want to know something deep, huh?”
She nods, eager.
I think about it for a second, and memories of my checkered past flash through my brain. But rather than watch her expression turn to one of sympathy when she learns my past, I’d rather see her face light up with a smile. “Blow jobs are my spirit animal.”
She rolls her eyes at me, but laughs.
“You seem normal enough. What in the hell did you do to piss off Roxy?” She chuckles as she says this, and suddenly all the blood in my veins turns to ice water.
I scrub a hand across the back of my neck. “Roxy and I . . . it’s a long story, and not one I care to discuss right now.”
She pouts. “Fine. Regardless of your history with Roxy, you didn’t deny what she told me about you.”
“What exactly did she say?” Now I’m actually curious.
She shrugs, playing with the long strands of hair from her ponytail that rest on her shoulder. “She just warned me to stay away from you. Told me about your man-whore background.”
“Well, your virtue is safe. I made a deal with my business partner. No more sleeping with tenants.” I’m not sure why I’m telling her this, maybe because it’ll be easier to enforce the friends-only rule I’ve set for myself if she knows that she’s off-limits to me.
“So sleeping around in general is still fine?” There’s a mocking tone to her voice.
“Absolutely. This will be just friends.” I gesture between us. “Unless, you naughty girl, you’re trying to tempt me.” I give her a flirty wink.
She frowns and shakes her head. “Not a chance in hell. I told you. I’m done with men, and you, Hayden Oliver, by all accounts are a piece of shit.”
“Excuse me?” I cock an eyebrow at her.
“I’ve dated guys like you before. And I classify all men who think with their dicks under S for Shitty.”
“I do think with my cock on a regular basis, so I can’t argue with you there. But he’s so much more fun than my brain.”
This gets a small smile from her, and my heart beats just a little faster.
“Seriously, why would I take a chance on you and have my heart broken again?”
“Because I have a nine-inch cock and I know where the G-spot is?”
Her cheeks turn pink, belying her cool, confident tone. “Tempting, but not good enough.”
