Screwed by K.M. Neuhold Blog Tour

Screwed by K.M. Neuhold Blog Tour


I've had my fair share of less than proud relationship moments, but waking up married to my brother-in-law's best friend is a new low.

A drunken wedding to a man who already rejected me once? Check. A hefty bet about how long it will last? Check. My feisty new husband, determined to make our friends pay up? Double check.

I've never managed to make a real relationship last nearly a year, there's no way Daniel will stick around long enough to win this bet. The only problem is the longer he stays, the more the lines blur between what's real and what's for show. Does he feel it too or am I totally screwed?

***Screwed is a woke up married, faking it to their friends but also totally hooking up, sweet, STEAMY love story that happens to be the fourth book in the Four Bears Construction series. There are no bear shifters in this series, only the OTHER kind of bears.***

Excerpt



I lift my left hand closer to my face, sure I’m having some kind of hangover induced hallucination. I mean, why the hell would I have a silver band around my left ring finger? Running my thumb over the band, it feels very much real, the metal smooth and warm from my skin.

“What the actual fuck?” I mutter, finally leaning over and filling my mouth with water so I can rinse and spit. Obviously, I got drunk and decided to put on Ren’s wedding band for some reason that I’m sure made sense when I was ten shots of tequila deep.

I shuffle back out of the bathroom, slipping the ring off as I go. Ollie is still passed the fuck out on the bed, the sheets tangled around one leg while the other hangs off the side of the bed, his ass looking entirely biteable in his tight boxer briefs. I glance down at myself, realizing for the first time that I have no clue what I fell asleep in. A pair of loose fitting boxers hang on my hips. Ollie’s underwear, awesome.

Oh no, did we fuck? I look around helplessly for any clue to what might’ve happened. There aren’t any condom wrappers or lube packets in sight, but that doesn’t necessarily prove anything. I slip one hand into my underwear and between my ass cheeks. No traces of lube, and my hole doesn’t feel sore, so whatever we might’ve done, it wasn’t that. Thank fuck, because I would’ve been pissed if I blacked out a dicking from a man like that.

I don’t want to rummage through Ollie’s stuff, so I set the ring on the nightstand on his side of the bed where he’ll be able to see it and put it away when he wakes up. Good thing I didn’t lose it. Ren would’ve had my ass, and not in the fun way.

I climb back into bed, propping my pillow up against the headboard and grabbing my phone so I can check for any missed calls. My heart jolts when I see dozens of missed calls and texts from Ren.

“Oh fuck, please don’t be anything bad,” I mutter, opening the text thread.

REN: I can’t decide if I’m pissed or amused right now. I can’t believe you did this and with Ollie of all people

That’s not a good sign. I scroll up to get more context, and I find a video I apparently sent to Ren at three in the morning. I swear to god if Ollie and I made a porn and sent it to Ren… I shake my head at myself and hit the play button on the video.

“I should call Ren and tell him to come down here. Shit, I think this thing is recording. Oh, I can send it to Ren!” I giggle and hiccup. “Rennnnnnnn, I know you’re probably balls deep in your man, or vice versa, but Ollie and I are at the Little White Wedding Chapel and you should totally come down here and watch us get married. Oh my god, bring Cole too. He should see his brother get married. Can you bring rice to throw? Fuck, do we have rice to throw at their wedding?”

The camera jostles and Ollie comes into view looking just as fucking hammered as I did.

“You’re not supposed to throw rice. We’re going to get bubbles.”

“Bubbles! Ren, bring bubbles!”
I start laughing again, and Ollie joins in. “Dang, they’re calling our name, I have to go. Hey, this means you and me are going to be brother-in-laws. Brothers-in-law? Brother-ins-laws?” I start laughing again, and the video ends.

“Nooooooo,” I gasp, staring at my phone in horror. After the video is a dozen texts from Ren telling me not to marry Ollie and then a few more where he seems pretty resigned to the fact that it probably happened and mildly pissed at me. “No, no, no.”

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the fourth book in the series, and poor Ollie absolutely deserves his happily ever after. He has to be the most unlucky man with love out of the guys! I would definitely recommend that you read these books in order, as the camaraderie and the stories follow on from each other.

We meet up with the guys planning and attending Ren and Cole's bachelor party in Vegas, followed by their wedding in Hawaii. By some great disaster, Ollie finds himself once again in a position where he will be the joke of the holiday – all because he and Ren's best friend Daniel have woken up in Vegas... yep, married. Desolate at the thought of being the butt of their jokes, Daniel saves Ollie's face by saying that they had been dating and just decided to take the plunge. This then results in a bet, which means they decide to stay together for now.

I absolutely loved how the commitment-phobe Daniel and the romantic Ollie had to learn to live with each other and within the confines of their arrangement. It was sweet, sexy, and just the perfect way to get a relationship to work. All the very best of things happened, whilst they were both busy denying they had a future. Obviously, there are a few hiccups along the way, but this was a story which made me very happy. Thank you!

M/M Romance

Daniel is known as the commitment-phobe of their group. He flits from guy to guy, dresses fabulously, and knows how to flirt with the best of them. Despite knowing that Ollie is a hot man, his fear of truly loving someone always has him choosing men who treat him poorly.

Ollie is the romantic of the group. He wants to be in love with someone – wants to be married. He wants it so much that he's tried it several times. With his last disaster of a relationship, Ollie took a break from trying to find love.

When Daniel and Ollie find themselves in a situation neither believed would ever happen, they have to find creative ways to live together, learn together, and trust. With Vegas in their rearview mirror and the consequences laying before them, these two will have to fight for the right to fall in love.

I really loved this story. It was a true friends-to-lovers romance. It was fun to watch these two figure out whether or not they could love beyond friendship and what it would take to truly trust. I suggest that you read the books in order, because then you can see the nuance of how the other relationships relate to each other.

Screwed is the fourth installment in the Four Bears Construction series. It can be read as a standalone, but it is so much better if you start at the beginning of the series and see how these guys have gotten to this point. I personally started with this book, well first three paragraphs but wanted the full story so I started with book one, Caulky, then Nailed and Hardwood. I flew through the series; I was so invested in these guys and this author delivered!

Anyway, back to Screwed. Screwed is Ollie and Daniel’s story.

Ollie was a romantic at heart. He wanted to be in love and married in the worst way. Thus leading to his four failed marriages. After a guy he was seeing makes a fool of himself, hitting on his friends and he again becomes the butt of the joke, he swears off dating, but not before a quick sympathy blow job from Daniel. Daniel finds Ollie extremely sexy, but they are looking for two completely different things. Daniel is all about hook-ups and avoiding relationships, but being the best friend of the guy marrying Ollie's brother puts them in constant contact planning the bachelor party in Vegas. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… unless you drunkenly marry you brother's fiancé’s best friend. Not wanting to look like the butt of the joke again, they agree to "fake" being married, until the line blurs between what's real and what's part of the "pretend" marriage.

I loved this series. These characters had me so invested I couldn't get enough. I flew through each book, loving the ride I was taken on. I can't wait for more!


Angie☆☆☆☆
I love this series, each book is different but always hits me with the feels. I'm so glad we finally got Ollie's story. Poor guy has had some bad luck, he wants to be married soooo bad and to be loved. Daniel is not his type, but he's hot and so flirty. These two have chemistry like you wouldn't believe. The sexy times are H.O.T. I love how Daniel doesn't want Ollie's friends giving him crap about his failed relationships. I love how this really felt like a friends-to-lovers book. What I'm most happy about is that we met Miller. which means another book! I don't want this series to end!


Sarah☆☆☆☆
I’ve been waiting for Ollie’s book since the start of the series. As the only one of the four bears desperate for a relationship, it has been painful watching him wait while all his friends paired off. Ollie’s book is worth the wait. His drunken fourth wedding in Vegas starts as a car crash but slowly becomes something real and wonderful.

Daniel and Ollie are opposites at the start of the story. While Ollie is almost pathetically desperate for a relationship, Daniel is terrified of commitment. Their drunken wedding and the bet that follows forces Ollie to slow down and Daniel to appreciate the benefits of a relationship. It works.

This isn’t quite as funny or as memorable as some of the earlier books in this series. But it’s still a great read. The balance between humour and tender intimacy works well and the sexual tension that builds between these two is almost painful. The four bears and their partners are great together and this book brings some closure to the series. K.M. Neuhold is definitely an autobuy author for me now and I can’t wait to see what’s next.

 

 

Author Bio

 

 

Author K.M. NEUHOLD is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely – and sometimes damaged – men finding their Happily Ever After together. She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series. When she's not writing she's a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero... just kidding, she's likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.
