As the door clicked shut, I found myself pushed up against it, Abel pressing his body into me. He swooped down, pressing his lips tightly to mine before opening his mouth and allowing his tongue to find mine. Deep kisses, his hands in my hair and mine gripping the back of his neck, led to a now-familiar sigh falling from his lips.
“That’s more like it,” he mumbled against my mouth. “I missed you.”
The words, along with his beard, tickled me inside and out. He missed me. It was like Callie had said—we were gooey. He smiled and rested his hands on my hips. His fingers fumbled around the middle of the jumpsuit I was wearing before he reached around my back, his hands smoothing across to my ass.
“What are you doing?” I asked.
“Trying to find your skin so I can touch you.”
I stifled a moan because it was the exact thing that made me weak. His moves in bed were amazing, but he had perfected his art of words very well. I would’ve liked to have attributed it to his English major background, but I knew better. He had a lot of practice.
“You can keep trying,” I said. “But it’s a jumpsuit. It’s all connected.”
He grabbed my ass, giving it a squeeze. “That’s too bad. What else is too bad is I’m pretty sure you’re not wearing underwear.”
“Sometimes life goes smooth, then sometimes you find yourself so screwed, 5 stars”
If you've read So Twisted then you know the two main characters in So Screwed. I loved Abel and I loved Evelyn going into So Screwed so I was thrilled to finally get their story. So Screwed has the perfect balance between light and serious. With that said, I will warn you this story does involve a gambling issue, so if you can’t handle that then this is not the story for you.
Abel is funny, light heart, and a lover of women. But for quite some time now his mind has been on one woman. One who remains just out of reach. What happens when the woman you want walks into the bar you work at? You say screw it and go for it. Will Evelyn be all that Abel has made her out to be?
Evelyn is firmly dedicated to her career. She doesn’t have time for relationship, so she has one night stands to satisfy her needs. Her best friend has always made Abel out to be a player, so when she finds out there is more to him then she knew Evelyn gets curious. Who would have known there was a serious side to the family joke.
When Abel and Evelyn find themselves together they do what any two players do, they jump in bed. But what happens when the relationship leaves the bedroom, will they make it? When Abel finds himself in serious trouble does he confide in Evelyn or leave the only woman he’s ever loved hurt and confused? You’ll have to read So Screwed to find out what happens.
Here are a couple quotes I liked;
“I pushed her up against the door before my hands reached up and gripped her face firmly. “I solemnly swear I’m up to no good.”
“So many thought it was about flowers and expensive jewelry to get us excited, but it was always the subtle things.”
“I didn’t even make a wish when I blew out the candle because you are everything. You are everything I would’ve wished for.”
“Because you made me want to write every single word.”
Writing style- 5/5
