~ Synopsis ~
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.
~ Excerpt ~
"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.”
~ Review ~
There are just some authors that you #1click without even reading the synopsis. You know the author's books that you sit down to read and the next thing you know it's morning and the story is over...done...gone in the blink of an eye. Happens every single time I pick up a new read from Kendall Ryan! This time around she journeyed to a new genre….Romantic Comedy and yet again she nailed it!
Meet Hayden Oliver, a confident, well-endowed alpha who gets himself in way over his head while trying to charm the pants off a new neighbor. I mean who wouldn’t want to see a man squirm a little before reaching his “final destination” a/k/a panty central.
“Tell me again why doing the nasty would be a bad idea?” ~ Hayden
Emery was just what the doctor ordered! She had Hayden jumping through hoops without even trying. Friends…nothing more. Don’t get me wrong the attraction was there but Emery wasn’t looking for a relationship when she moved to California. She was looking to further her career. Stumbling across some eye candy was just an added bonus.
Loved this book! Hayden and Emery had it all! Friendship, Fun, Flirting and yes they got SCREWED!! There were some laugh out loud moments, there were the signature Kendall Ryan hot and sexy scenes, there was conflict, understanding and love!
Do yourself a favor and #1click this book upon release. Take the journey with Hayden and Emery and then get ready from the spin-off novella coming this November, Monster Prick!
