This is exactly what I needed. A cute and hot contemporary romance to get me out of this goddammit slump

I’ve been a fan of Jamieson’s books for a few years now and it never she never fails. I love her female characters their male counterparts still a little bit of work but she’s getting there.

I really enjoyed Callie and Cash. I loved Callie in particular. She was fierce and vulnerable and so sweet! Seeing her grow was not only fun but inspiring.

Finding a new path in life and getting to know you
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Based off this title I wasn't expecting this to be such a sweet story. Both main characters were genuinely good people that were just in a difficult situation. I really liked both of them and loved seeing these two together despite the obstacles in their way.

Back in college, Cash's best friend beat him to the girl first. He had to stuff down his attraction to Callie and watch his best friend date and eventually marry her. This story begins after Callie divorces Baeu and spent a year traveling.

3.75 stars.
Really sweet romance. This is the first romance that I have read by her that wasn't sports related. It was nice to read a book with a different setting while still maintaining the same level of charm, humor and tenderness I associate with this author's books.
Her characters always seem to display a certain integrity and honesty in dealing with whatever obstacles they face and I find that really attractive.

This is my first book by this author. I am pessimistic first. I do not know what to expect. And i am taken by surprise. I like this book. I really do.

The story have a bit of forbidden romance. Cash has been in love with Kelly for years. But Kelly ends up marrying Beau, Cash best friend. Then Kelly divorces Beau. Cash who is always in love with her, becomes her shoulder to cry on and her new BFF. Quickly after a drunken night, they feels the chemistry building between them. Soon it explodes.

Screwed is a heartwarming, deliciously sweet and sexy story of a character who finds her own self worth after divorce... and finds a second chance at love in the most inconvenient place. I absolutely ADORED this book. From cover to cover,  I was transfixed, completely consumed by the chemistry and undeniable passion between Callie Sutherland and Cash Hale...

Callie is recently divorced and starting over. Her family is not behind her because Cash, her ex, was the perfect husband for their business connections and both Callie and Cash are from a families with wealth.

Cash’s best friend Beau and business partner has a thing for Callie. He thought she was an uptight rich girl until he got to know her, and it was love. As you can imagine, dating your best friend’s ex is not something you should do... but his heart has other ideas.

Finding something to do with her love for art and baking would be nice, but what she really wants is her ex-husband’s best friend and business partner.

I'm not sure the title is really relevant to the story....#1 and #2 I'll have to excuse myself to go brush my teeth because this was a very sweet story. I don't think even the bad characters could stay "bad". If you love sweets then this is your book. Yum, Cash!!

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

When I first read this book it was somewhat shorter so I was thrilled to find it expanded and re-released. Being a lifelong Texan, I found Screwed to be overly clichéd, however I loved the story and the characters so I put the whole overblown Texan bit aside and focused on the couple and their relationship. A forbidden affair leads to so much more in this sweet and satisfying contemporary romance from Kelly Jamieson.

Where should i start? I could tell you that you need to read this book, if you want to see how a true heroine should be in a book, how maybe when it comes to love and fidelity isn't always a black and white type of thing, to learn to love yourself and believe in yourself and think you are good enough.

This book made me cry, because it hit a rough spot for me, maybe that's why the 5* rating. But it wasn't just that. The amazing alpha caveman, out of the world smut and dirty talk, strong

Rating: 4.5/5

This is a delicious, heartwarming, sweet friends to lovers romance. It is a story about Callie Sutherland who divorces Beau, her cheating husband, and is starting to make a new life for herself. She has a lot of support from her ex-husband’s business partner and best friend, Cash Hale, but as the attraction between the two escalates so do the obstacles in their way!

And let me just say I'm a big sucker for stories set in my hometown. I felt like I could hop in my car and go find Cash and Callie down in River Oaks and try to become their friend or get a job at CAKED. :)

Cash knows that Callie is off limits. Bro code and all, since Callie is his best friend's ex-wife. But Beau messed up when he cheated on Callie... plus it's been a year since they have separated and now with her divorce final, maybe he can let some of his pent upped fee

Blurbs for books like Screwed by Kelly Jamieson are my kryptonite! A man in love with his best friend’s wife and now they are divorced, but she should still be off limits, right? I could not wait to read it once I read that blurb!

Cash Hale has loved Callie for a long time. The only problem? She married his best friend Beau. Now they are divorced, but she is still off limits. Cash is an honest and loyal man and Beau is not only his best friend, but also his business partner.

I enjoyed this title. With the blurb and storyline, I was expecting it to feel messy, or a little taboo. And it was...sort of. But more than anything, it was a story about 2 people who really want to be together, who are fighting the attraction they have for one another and who really just want to figure out a way to do the right thing...without giving each other up.

Cash and Callie have known each other for years. In fact, Cash is the business partner of Callie's ex husband.

So, yeah, it's messy

"Screwed" was definitely an appropriate name for this book, because both hero and heroine were stuck between a rock and hard place, when it came their romance.

Kelly Jamieson brings us the sparkling gem an off ice romance that quickly caught my attention and was a totally engaging romance. I loved the story of Cash and Callie, Callie the now ex of Cash's best friend and business partner and a friend of Cash's as well. As Cash seeks to help Callie out after her return from a long trip to Europe putting her divorce behind her, the two grow closer as friends.

This was a cute story, not your typical girl falls in love with ex's best friend. I loved that unlike those typical stories, it was the guy who had always been in love with his best friend's girl then wife then ex. I appreciated the battle he faced when he found out his best friend was cheating on her: do you stay local to your best friend or to the woman you've secretly been in love with but can never have? Oh and to top it all off, your best friend is also your business partner so if you screw ...more
3.5 stars, rounding down

I read this as soon as it came out because it has two of my favorite tropes, friends-to-lovers and unrequited love! It's also ~forbidden love~ because Callie is the ex-wife of Cash's best friend and business partner. A good portion of the conflict and angst hinges on this, and the idea that they can't be together because of this, so I spent a lot of time asking myself if that's really forbidden? I don't know. I don't have an ex-husband for my best friend to date.

Kris – ☆☆☆☆
Kelly Jamieson is a new-to-me author but the premise sounded good and I took a chance. It's a good book, I enjoyed the storyline very much. Callie is recently divorced but her parents still love her ex. She's a bit of a socialite and good Southern belle. Trying to find her way after her divorce, she finds herself wanting to open her own bakery, much to her parents’ and her ex's annoyance. Cash is her ex's best friend and he's also still his busin

Cash Hale fell in love with his best friend's girl, but for years has done everything he can to keep his feelings buried. However, now that Callie and his best friend are divorced, Cash finds it hard to stay away from her, even though he knows getting involved with his friend's ex is a bad idea. But with Callie finally getting her life on track the way she wants and Cash being so loyal, will they get their shot at happy ever after or will Callie have her heart broken all over again?

This is the first Kelly Jamieson story that I have read that was not sports related - and I liked it!

Cash and Callie's story is as sweet, sexy, heartwarming friend-to-lovers story about a woman and her ex husband's best friend.

We can guess from the outset that his is going to cause some problems, however I loved the way our lovelies worked their way through them - eventually.

I am not going to lie - I pretty much despised her ex and her parents most

What do you do when the love of your life marries your best friend?

This was Cash's dilemma for years, until he caught Beau cheating on Callie and even though he couldn't say anything to Callie, he knew their marriage was all but over.

A year after the inevitable divorce, Callie is trying to find her stride and coming to terms with the truth of her marriage. Right there for her, always there for her, is the gorgeous and supportive friend, Cash. An intense trip to the tattoo parlor to forever imp

Screwed by Kelly Jamieson is a well-written romance filled with many sweet and sexy moments. If you need a read low on the angst, this one is for you!

Callie is newly divorced after stumbling upon her husband’s infidelity. While Callie starts to question her new role in life, she also starts to question her sudden feelings for Cash. Cash is her former husband’s best friend and business partner. So, to say a relationship between the two would be complicated, is putting it mildly.

I have read a number of Kelly Jamieson novels, and this is another good addition to the collection. The writing style is easy and conversational and it doesn't take long to get into the story.

I really liked both Cash and Callie's characters, although the fact that Cash had loved her for years and she really had no clue showed just what a good guy he was! Mind you, once he gets a chance to get close, he cannot resist, an

This is a second chance romance unlike any other I've read! Callie has been separated from her husband for over a year due to his affairs (and honestly his belief that they are no big deal JERK) but is finally finalizing her divorce. With a family that has pressured her into "marrying the right man" for the wrong reasons and enforce her to show a "proper image" she can't take the strain any more. She's intent to become her own woman and find her own happiness,
