Abel Matthews is a bartender by trade, but he has big dreams of unleashing his knowledge on the world, by hopefully someday becoming an English teacher and writer. Being a drink slinger also lends to his other favorite hobby, being an womanizer, he has it down to a science now, while making their drinks, he charms women into giving him their phone numbers... to later charm them out of their panties. And until now he's never struck out, but then again he has never met a woman quite like Evelyn Owen, she knows the game, plays the game, and isn't about to fall into his trap! Evelyn Owen isn't like the women she helps, she doesn't want the the white dress, vows, and happily ever after, she prefers to keep her entanglements with men strictly on a one night basis. She is too busy for relationships, not to mention their messy at times, and she just isn't willing to sign herself up for that... that is until Abel comes into her life. At first she wanted nothing to do with the man, she had heard all about him and his naughty boy ways from her best friend, and she was determined not to fall into his trap, but little by little he charmed his way into her life... and her heart! After meeting these two in the first installment, I was anxious to see how their story would all play out, I knew it would be a good one, but I have to say Ms. Marino surprised me a little with this one... it the best possible way, it was so good!! As soon as you meet these two, you'll start to see that they were meant for one another, both wounded souls, not willing to let love in, but little by little they begin to pull the best parts of one another out, and soon the fireworks start to ignite. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, it is a perfectly blended romance story filled with steamy sexy times, witty banter, and heartfelt emotion, that kept me captivated right up and until the last page is swiped! Highly recommend!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
Never judge a book by it's cover. The real surprises lie inside. Melissa Marino gives readers a high octane ride into romance with Evelyn and Abel. She has her eye on the prize. He's a man of many talents. Could one of those talents include stealing her heart? So Screwed is a darkly sensual, totally unforgettable surprise that delivers a one, two punch to the heart and a fire burst to the hormones.
