Melissa's Review:

Screwed is book one in the Screwed series. This book revolves around a cocky casanova that always gets what he wants and an independent female that wants no part of his flavor of the week club. We shift POV between the two and get to see both sides of what is going on as the novel progresses.

Cocky casanova aka Hayden Oliver runs the apartment building that just got a new pretty female tenant. Since his co-partner had just told him to stop sleeping with the single female tenants due to complaints, he, of course, sets his eyes on Emery and instantly wants her. Instead of trying to do what he normally does, though, he does the unthinkable, he befriends her.

Emery just got hired as an intern for a law office and is all business. She got a heads up from another female tenant to watch out for Hayden and doesn't want any part of him. But when he comes over and invites her out as a friend she's intrigued. She's in a new city, doesn't know anyone so decides to go out with him and see what all the fuss is about. They have a great time, and quickly become good friends. Hayden and Emery wind up texting a lot, and going out a lot together and just growing closer. Neither realizes as their friendship grows that they're wanting more. As yall know, I love to see who cracks first and realizes it. There are bumps in the road, which kept things interesting and makes the characters work for it. And I just overall really enjoyed Screwed. If you like Contemporary Romance, I think you'd get a kick out of this one.


  1. Bumps in the road makes it fun to read I guess ;)

  2. Sounds interesting. I'd have though it would be more an erotic romance given the title. I'm surprised that it's such a slow building romance from friends to lovers. I'll have to give this one a read.

    1. He wants it right away, but they wind up becoming friends until more happens later ;) Hope you enjoy!

  3. I can see why you enjoyed this one, Melissa ;)
    The whole growing closer sounds good, I like that and now I would love to see who cracks first for myself!

  4. I guess owning an apartment building where singles would usually live would be a easy way to pick up women. I do see how it could be bad for business though. LOL

    1. Uh huh!! Hahaha the co-owner (his friend) was NOT happy to keep getting complaints :P

  5. I would've definitely thought it was like a 50 Shades type read based on the title, but the story seems a lot more tame. I like the slow burn romances. Great review!

  6. I've been needing to give her a go. Sounds like a lot of fun. Love when they start out becoming friends.

    1. I do too!! Especially when the casanova has to fight his urges haha
