“When I first arrived in this new life, I was warned that this silly, cute, cocky, infuriating man was my enemy. I became his friend instead. And now . . . he’s just plain mine.”
Screwed is a novel by Kendall Ryan. I love Kendall Ryan books. They are sweet, short and hit the right spot for me every time. I also love that each book is different and she has a way in making me fall in love with her characters.
Hayden owns a condo complex. He doesn’t screw where he eats. He’s had a bad previous experience with a tenant and he doesn’t want to relive that again. Emery just moved into Hayden’s complex and she is forewarned of his player ways. Emery is busy trying to become a lawyer and doesn’t need an easy hook-up.
Cute and fun are the words that come to mind when I think of how to best describe this book. It was a straightforward, light-hearted story with likable characters and a fast pace. I listened to the Audible version and it was just over 5 hours, which is really short. It would be a good choice if you're looking for a book you could finish in a short period of time.
While the storyline is like a thousand other "rich playboy meets good girl" books on the shelves, the characters were engaging enough to keep things interesting. Yes, it is very predictable, but it is a nice, fun read. Just don't expect anything mind-blowing. It is what it is.
Overall, I give it 4 stars. It was a nice, fun story to pass a little time. There wasn't anything wrong with it, but there wasn't anything particularly remarkable about it either. I liked it well enough, but I know it isn't one that will make any sort of lasting impression.
