synopsisI 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

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!

Sacrifice Never Be The Samereview

Shera’s Review 5 of 5 Stars

When an author branches out and does something different, it’s got to be terrifying. Adriana Locke took that step by writing a story line on the opposite end of the rainbow from her past works.  Sacrifice is so very different from The Exception and The Perception.  Let me tell you.  Different suits her and she does “different” damn well!  From the very first chapter I knew without a doubt that this was going to be her best work yet.

Sacrifice is a heart wrenching, captivating, story of love, loss, trials and tribulations.  A story of just believing you can be a different person, believing it will all end up just as it should be no matter what you must sacrifice.  A book I surely will never forget.  One you will not be able to put down, that I can guarantee.

Crew Gentry is like no other.  He was a former wrestler/fighter that was destined for greatness until an injury knocked him down.  When it knocked him down, it basically knocked him out because he wasn’t living.  He felt like he had failed everyone in his life especially his guilt for his brother’s death.    When things got hard, Crew walked away.  Turning his back was easier then facing forward.  Crew’s brother Gage, left behind a wife, Julia and an adorable little girl named Everleigh to try to make in this world alone.

Finding herself a single mother Julia struggles like most.  She makes the best decisions she can to provide for the here and now.  She provides for herself and Ever even though it’s not much.  Her family is no help, more harm than good.   Crew plays a big part in Ever’s life, although Julia gives him the cold shoulder.  Knowing they struggle, Crew does everything he can to help them survive.  Guilt eats away him, piece by piece.

“Life is about choices and I had made mine.  It was time to stop worrying about it.  Don’t talk about it.  Be about it.”

When the unthinkable happens will it bring two people together and force them to forgo the past for one common goal?  Will believing be enough?  Is the sacrifice worth the payoff?  It has to be right?

You will laugh, you will cry, your heart will shatter into a million tiny pieces.  Undeniably you will fall in love with Crew Gentry.  Not only do the main characters pull you in, but the secondary characters do as well.  Specifically Will.  I personally would like to, no scratch that.  I NEED to know more about him.  He is one of those secondary characters that you just can’t stop thinking about.  This is a must read book.  Bottom line.  Don’t delay. Buy it. Read it.  LOVE IT and get #sCREWed!

This is hands down my most favorite quote.  It’s so true and touched me more than words can express.   –    “When things seem unbeatable, you have to keep pressing forward.  Because no matter how bad they look, you can always win.  You always have the power.  You just have to realize it”

Kristin’s Review 5 of 5 Stars

Oh mother of all things good and holy. Crew Gentry…holy crap on a cracker.

“The first prince realizes that if he were a true prince, he wouldn’t have left her for the shiny kingdom. He would’ve taken her with him. So he leaves her with her new prince because he really loves her. Not more than he does, but in a different way.”

Julia and Crew had a thing in high school but when Crew left for college he left everything and everyone behind and didn’t look back until it was too late. Julia had moved on with Crew’s brother, Gage. Crew leaves Julia to be happy with Gage and goes on intent to screw up his entire life after an injury that ends his wrestling career.

“But just consider for one fucking second that me leaving you and going back to Minnesota was me telling you much I cared about you. And that, Julie, has never fucking changed.”

Married with a child when Gage dies unexpectedly, Julia is now alone with her daughter, Ever. A single mom with real world struggles of making ends meet and keeping her little family fed, clothed, and warm.

“You walk away when everything gets hard. You walked away from me once. You walked away from your mom when she was sick. You walked away from your responsibilities and good judgements and look where that got Gage. I can’t count on you Crew. I can’t.”

Crew tries to help his widowed sister in law but she makes life very difficult for him. She blames him for her husband’s death just as much as he blames himself.

“Fighting to live. Fighting to survive. Fighting to protect what little you have left. This I know all too well.”

When life happens can Jules put her differences aside with Crew and be a family that supports each other? Can their past love be rekindled into something lasting and real?

“And I know you love me and my mommy. So why aren’t you my daddy? You don’t want to be my daddy?”

This book was absolutely, unbelievably, without a doubt, one of the best books I have ever read. Adriana’s writing was different in this book than it was in the Exception or the Perception but it was even more amazing. This book is not the light and fluffy “coach” that we had with Cane and Max but that’s not Crew and Jules. There were moments where I was terrified to keep reading. Have faith and keep going – Adriana does not disappoint. I will recommend this book to anyone that will listen!!
