After a divorce from her cheating ex-husband, Callie is trying to figure out what to do with her life. Having always done what her family wanted, she is now breaking away, but the answers to her dilemma aren’t so easy to find. Cash, her friend and yet her ex’s best friend as well, has been there to help her with small problems along the way. After a drunken night, a discussion of tattoos and some cookies, Callie is suddenly seeing something in Cash she was never expecting. I enjoyed this “ex’s best friend” story. Cash has been in love with Callie for years and yet his loyalty to his friend has kept him at a distance. Now he can’t seem to stay away, but what will happen to his friendship and most importantly, the business they share together, if news of their relationship gets out? Callie had a real struggle on her hands but she was strong and determined despite the emotional obstacles that stood in her way. Cash was wonderful! He was so caring and supportive of her every step of the way. I loved when his alpha tendencies arose! I was so curious how this whole situation was going to sort itself out because it felt like someone was going to lose along the way. The ending was maybe a tad bit tidy and smooth for the circumstances, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. This was a well-paced read that had some great secondary characters, some of which I wanted to push out of a fast running car. The heat level was steamy and oh so good with some dirty talk, which I LOVE, thrown in and the chemistry between Callie and Cash was at overload. There’s an epilogue that only covers a few weeks, so I would’ve liked a further look into their future, but I closed this book feeling happy and sated and again, so pleased with this author’s work. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Entangled. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

LOVED this book! It is everything you would expect from the author - a well crafted and sexy contemporary romance filled with humor and poignant moments. She made me care about the characters and fell invested in their story. Callie is sweet, funny, and lovable....to everyone but the people that should love her most. Cash is hard working and running a company that he co-owns with his best friend....who is Callie's ex-husband. This novel is set up perfectly with the friends to lovers concept, but with the ex-husband and Callie's parents as complications. I found myself rooting for the characters and wanting them to get their HEA ending. This one is a must read for fans of the genre. The author is on my must read authors' list.

The heart is a lonely hunter looking for a way to make itself whole. In the
case of Callie and Cash love proves to be a minefield. Cash is willing to
risk friendships, business deals and his emotions to have his heart's
desire. Callie is the woman of his dreams. Hopefully their feelings won't
become a waking nightmare. Screwed is the beginning of what could be for
two people willing to take a risk and make it so. Jamieson takes a detour
into the ugly stuff to get to the rainbow in the end. Emotional romance.
