SO SCREWED (Bad Behavior #2)

SO SCREWED                                                 MELISSA MARINO

He's charming, wicked, and handsome . . . and she needs to stay away
For Evelyn Owen, work comes first. Being a wedding planner to the city's elite fills her nights and weekends, and she doesn't have time for distractions. Especially in the form of a sexy bartender with killer dimples . . .

Abel Matthews knows how to serve the ladies. But lately, the only woman he wants is just out of reach. That's because Evelyn has already been warned about his playboy ways. Still, there's something about her that makes Abel want more than a quick fling.

Evelyn knows that she shouldn't trust Abel. Yet she's seen a side of him no one else knows, and she can't turn away. But Abel is hiding something from her . . . and if he doesn't confess soon, it will tear them apart.
 

MY REVIEW:
     This was an interesting story of two very insecure people who are able to walk through life showing themselves as no worries as their motto.  When really it wasn’t.
     For Evelyn Owens, she is your well put together designer clothed head to toe wedding planner’s assistant.  Who at twenty-four, very soon twenty-five, is working her way to becoming a full wedding planner and one day hopefully and owner.  Yet, when it comes to her heart she is fearful beyond words.
     She was burned by her last boyfriend, Patrick, where she felt she lost her identity.  He wanted her on his time and on his terms.  Kind of hard when you have your own career and dreams to fulfill. 
     But when she met her best friend’s boyfriend’s brother, Abel Matthews, there was this instant connection.  Even though she was warned off not to get involved.  She became more intrigued.  Something like the forbidden fruit.  Each time they were in the same room the temp went up for sure.  They were not the only ones that noticed it others did too.
     Abel was a sex stick walking.  From the stories told there wasn’t a woman in all of Chicago his shoes had not laid under their bed.  Well, except hers of course.  Their chemistry was off the charts.  Each time he saw her he made sure to ask her out.  Just thinking about him always did things to her, most of all her lady parts.
     It wasn’t until Aaron and Abel’s grandmother’s funeral that she saw a whole different side of him.  He was dressed in a suit looking so yummy and her looking like a drowned rat.  It was pouring rain out by the time she got to their Callie and Aaron’s after the service.  With charm and a straight face, he called her ‘Beautiful’ and meant it with all his heart.
     Once again, before she left he asked her out for coffee.  Once again, she said no.  The one night her boss Brigette asked her out for drinks after a long day.  She said, sure.  But, when they just walked around the corner she was confused.  They were led to a secret world.  A club that is members only.  One that had none other than Abel working as its bartender.  The two women had drinks flirted with the bartender and when at the end of their evening, he asked her out again…
     These two are two peas in a pod.  They are so much alike.  She is a lady who had a standing sex partner plus extra here and there.  She wasn’t looking for real.  Neither was he but something could change when you least expect it.  Just so you know the ending left me lacking in a lot of ways.  Yet, fulfilled too.  So, with that, I give this 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
