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 confin

★★★★! Screwed (stand-alone). A serious case of blue balls for Hayden Oliver after embarking on a friendship with off-limit tenant!

“That’s bullshit right there. I should be waking up with my cock in her mouth not because I told her we’d do yoga this morning.”

Screwed is real estate investor Hayden Oliver’s story.

He has lived his life to the fullest screwing his way through half the women in Hollywood, many of whom are residents at his apartment complexes. Bu

Author Kendall Ryan asked me if I'd like to review her romantic comedy Screwed which is due out on September 15th. She said that Screwed is in the same vein as the famous Tangled. I couldn't decline her offer because I happen to have very fond memories of cocky Drew. However that be, while reading Screwed I had to realize…

There can be only one!

And that is most definitely Drew and not Hayden. Screwed wasn't real

This is a very fun, light, sexy read. I found it hit the spot because it can be read in one sitting and made for an enjoyable evening. If you like the trope of the hero/manwhore trying the friend route with a spunky heroine and eventual fall into love, this one's for you!

Hayden Oliver is pretty much your typical manwhore. He thinks with his nine inch member and has been sampling all the hot female tenants living at most of his properties.

Time for what you ask? Time to get SCREWED.

Why do I suddenly feel all tingly? No. That isn’t part of the plan. He does not get to strut over here and make me go all lusty for his dirty, dirty man rod. Especially after what Roxy just told me. Has my vagina no shame? There are probably cooties crawling up and down that overused flagpole.

5 Screw Me Stars Please

Screwed is a standalone 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. Em
3 Screwed Stars.

Hayden is a real estate investor that doesn’t do relationships, so he just go from one girl to another. Emery is a law intern who doesn’t do playboys, because she had her heart broken by one. When she moves to one of his buildings their attraction is immediate but they agree on being “friends.”. But when things get to strong to ignore, who’ll be the first one to give in?


Despite being a very readable book, there was some aspects that didn’t work for me. To be honest I didn’t f

Screwed is a truly delightful read full of witty banter, clever dialogue, and likable characters. Like a package of pop rock candy it pops and gives you a shot of sugar to the system and leaves you floating on a sugar high!

I feel like a stalker when it comes to Kendall Ryan. Her books are always some of my favorites, so I am constantly watching and waiting for her new releases. I don’t think anyone does sexy, sweet and easy breezy as well as Kendall. So when I learned she was writing a sexy romantic comedy book I was dying to read it!

Screwed is the perfect blend of what I love from Kendall, it’s sexy, sweet, but also so much FUN! Hayden owns the building where Emery just moved in. She recently graduated from col

Recommends it for: Anyone looking for a quick, cute, light-hearted romance
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 (especially if you listen at 3x speed, like I usually do). It would be a good choice if you're looking for a book you could finish in a short period of time.

Everything was so damn linear! Nothing happened! NOTHING!
It was supposed to be a funny read, the characters interesting at least, but they really weren't. It was the same old story, same old lack of chemistry, same old people.

So, this was my first read by Kendall Ryan and it was a 'kind of good' start. I had quite high expectations for Screwed and well.. I am a little bit disappointed.

This is a stand-alone novel that explains the story between Hayden Oliver (a 'cannot keep it in my pants' real state investor) and Emery E. Winters (a 'new in the city' law intern who happens to be a tenant in one of our hero's buildings). These two start of as friends, even tough they are very at

If you're looking for a relatively short, angst free, funny story with two great characters who give even greater banter - Screwed is the story for you. Reading this book was an excellent way to spend two and a half hours of my night. After looking for a quick, flirty read and having Screwed recommended by a friend I read the blurb, immediately one-clicked, and commenced thoroughly enjoying.

You always want what you can't have...Isn't that the way it always goes? Hayden, however, doesn't think that applies to him. And even though he doesn't really do friends, he thinks he's totally capable of being just friends with the woman he cannot have.

Hayden is quite the sure of himself, so cocky but we get just a glimmer of something...something that threw him for a loop and set him on the path he's on today.

DNF - 3 stars

Almost half way in the book and I was bored...really bored...


The characters where great but the book development was nonexistent. The action was pretty linear and therefore it bored me to death.


I gave it 3 stars because I really love this author but this novel just wasn't for me.

“Friends. I will become friends with benefits with the so hot I want to bend her over and fuck her in broad daylight new girl.”

I don’t really like some pre-conceived notions of what this novel is about while reading because it sometimes mess with what I feel and supposed to feel. Screwed is a light and romantic novel, with a bit of humor in it.

One simply likes a nice erotic fairy tale. And that's just what Screwed is.

We have Hayden, a hot, young, rich playboy, and we have Emery, a hot, young, soon to be rich law intern. They meet and they try the friendship card in spite of their attraction for each other. They soon have hot sex and fall in love. They start dating.

The end.

Hayden Oliver is the epitome of a manwhore. He knows his nine inch cock is a Gods gift to all women and used it like it's his superpower, and his own building is his playground. But right when he see's his next target moving in, his business partner tells him that he is no longer allowed to sleep with the tenants in the building. So he takes a new approach, he befriends her.

3 ½ stars – Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy

This was a fun, cute romantic comedy. I was pleasantly surprised by the friends-to-lovers aspect of the relationship between the H/h, especially considering what a player the hero was in the beginning. The yoga scenes were funny, and the romantic development seemed believable. But I was also somewhat disappointed by the relaxed pacing and lukewarm chemistry. I expected lots of fun, naughty, sexy times given Hayden’s cocky, manwhore reputation, but

Review by Lisa Kane

Hayden Oliver is a property developer. Along with his best friend and partner, Hudson Stone they own multiple apartment complexes in Los Angeles. They take mediocre complexes, sink money into them and turn them into upscale properties. They are both successful, gorgeous and balls deep in women.

The only fly in the ointment-Hayden tends to have one night stands with his tenants. They quickly become pissed tenants at the way he blows them off afterwards and Hudson is sick of dea

The title of this book is so fitting because Hayden Oliver is indeed SCREWED. Can a man who has a nine-inch cock and a healthy appetite for the ladies, keep his cock under control when a sexy brunette bombshell lawyer recently moves into his apartment complex that he co-owns with his friend, Hudson? So when his business partner and friend Hudson laid down the laws for him to no longer screw the tenants, Hayden is left with only one optio

Hayden Oliver has a problem. He can’t seem to keep it in his pants and is slowly turning the tenants of his high-end rentals into a tissy as he works his way through all the available women. So it’s not too surprising when his business partner tells him that he needs to keep his dick to himself. But what is surprising is the desire he feels for the most recent resident, Emery.

Emery hasn’t had the greatest of luck when it comes to selecting men. Even after being warned about Hayden, she can’t he
