Cash Hale has been in love with his best friend’s wife forever. Now Callie and Beau are divorced, but she’s still way off-limits. Dating her would betray his friendship with Beau. And Cash is nothing if not loyal.
Callie Sutherland is starting over. The end of her marriage was just one more way she failed to live up to her wealthy family’s expectations, so from now on she’s not even going to try. It’s time to live her life the way she wants. And she wants Cash.
Cash and Beau aren’t just friends, they’re business partners, and the drop in the price of oil has hurt their business. They need to win the bid for Sutherland Industries’ next big project—but it may get messy since Callie’s family owns the business. Not only would Cash risk his friendship with Beau to be with her, he’d be risking the company they worked so hard to create.
But this new Callie isn’t taking no for an answer.
He’s so screwed...

Purchase Screwed Here:
4 “OMG. LOVE.” Stars!
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… HER EX HUSBAND’S BEST FRIEND!! Chin… meet floor.
I’m not a huge fan of third person point of view but Kelly Jamieson makes me forget that. I’m immediately wrapped up in her words EVERY SINGLE TIME and I don’t think that’s ever been more true than in this book. Screwed is my new favorite from Jamieson, hands down. This story is angsty and romantic and steamy, it checks off all the must-have boxes in a good love story. But it’s SO MUCH more than that. It’s about girl power and finding inner strength and discovering your self worth with or without a man. I wanted to high five Callie. I fell so hard for her and her emotional journey and her determination and her bravery. I rooted for her the whole way through and I loved her story SO MUCH.
But Cash is the delicious frosting on an already delectable cake. He makes this gem of a story that much more irresistible. He’s as sweet and charming as one of Callie’s tasty treats and I couldn’t get enough of him. You’ll need a box of macarons while reading this book to satisfy the sugar craving you’ll undoubtedly be left with, and you’ll need a shot of tequila to take the edge off of what Cash and Callie’s push and pull will do to your nerves.
Screwed pulls you in straight out of the gate and never lets up. It’s full of romantic feels, peppered with angst and longing, and nails you right in the heart in the best kind of way. This is a story you’ll root for, a forbidden kind of love story that is too right to be wrong, an intoxicating romance that is impossible to put down. I adored this charming story and I can’t recommend it enough.
Their eyes locked together. Cash went very still, his hand on her back, warm and strong. “What?”
Callie slid off the stool, her body brushing against Cash’s, went onto tiptoes, and touched her lips to his. “Sex,” she whispered. “I need sex.”
She gripped his T-shirt in both hands and pulled herself closer, pressing against him. He sucked in a sharp breath, and his hands went to her hips. “Callie…”
Her eyes drifted closed, and she pressed her mouth to his. “Mmm.”
A groan rumbled in his chest as she licked his bottom lip, then kissed him again. And he kissed her back, his mouth opening. He took control of the kiss immediately, and her knees went weak. She clung tighter to him as her head spun, tasting the inside of his mouth with her tongue, electricity zipping through her body when he slid his tongue into her mouth.
He tasted delicious, and his lips moved on hers, firm and warm and perfect. His hands gripped her hips, fingers digging into her buttocks, and he pulled her against him. He was hard.
Oh sweet hopscotching Jesus, he was so hard. She whimpered and tipped her pelvis against him, then slid her arms around his neck, fingers slipping into his hair.
“Callie,” he groaned.
“Mmm.” She nipped his full bottom lip, stroked it with her tongue, then kissed his stubbled jaw. “Cash. Kiss me.”
“Fuck.” But he did it, arms now going right around her, crushing her against his big, hard body. She wanted to climb up him and get even closer. She rubbed her aching breasts against his chest and found his mouth again in a long, deep kiss.
Need zoomed low in her belly, a hot pressure coiling inside her. She needed more, needed him. “This is crazy,” she whispered against his jaw. “I’m dying for you.”
“Jesus.” He clasped her waist, turned, and lifted her onto the kitchen island. Then he shoved her plate of sushi aside and stepped between her thighs. She wrapped her legs around him to bring him up close against her throbbing center and grabbed his shoulders again.
His hands slid into her hair and twisted in the long strands, tugging deliciously on her sensitive scalp. Sensation slid down her spine, tension aching in the small of her back.
“Jesus, you’re hot,” Cash muttered as he nipped at her lips.
“Please. Oh God, please.” She’d never felt like this before, like she needed an orgasm so badly she was hurting, a deep, pulsing, biting desire.
She rubbed against the hard bulge behind his jeans, and he made a noise that sounded wild and hungry. “Careful, darlin’.” He sucked briefly on her bottom lip.
“You need it, too.” She moved against him again. “We both do. Please.”
He groaned and rubbed his nose alongside hers. “Callie…”
“Do you have a condom?”
“Christ.” He took a deep breath. “Are you sure?”
