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

“You know what will make you feel better than booze? Dancing.” He doesn’t even wait for my response before grabbing my arm and hauling me out of my seat. I stumble a little, the four shots I took in quick succession going straight to my head.

Daniel slips his hand into mine without hesitation. His skin is warm and his palm is soft and smooth in contrast to my own. He’s slight, but his grip is strong, and he seems to have a special talent for making people get the hell out of his way, never slowing his steps as he parts the crowd and leads me to the makeshift dance floor.

He turns to face me as soon as we find an open space. In an instant, I watch as the prim, proper man I thought he was slips away, replaced by a man who’s smiling like a mad man and dancing like he’s trying to earn next month’s rent, swinging his hips from side to side and shaking his ass. It’s enough to lift the heaviness from my chest, a smile breaking over my face as I join him in swaying to the beat of the fast-paced song.

“There’s a smile,” he says, reaching over and running his fingers through my thick beard with too much familiarity and not enough all at once. Why did I decide Daniel wasn’t my type again? Because right now I’m pretty sure he’s checking every box I can think of. “Don’t worry about that douche, okay? You were too good for him anyway.”

I chuckle. “You hardly know me. Maybe I’m a douche too,” I challenge.

“I know enough,” he shouts over the music, spinning around so his ass is toward me and swiveling his hips invitingly. He turns his head, looking at me over his shoulder, and winks.

His ass looks tight and firm, perfect to dig my fingers into, to spread his cheeks apart and bury my face between them. My cock perks up, pressing against the zipper of my jeans.

The song changes to one with a slower tempo, and Daniel turns back to face me again, stepping closer and looping his arms around my neck without hesitation, pressing his body against mine. I roll with it, wrapping my arms around his middle and swaying to the song with him.

“So, what’s the deal? Do you have shitty taste or bad luck?” he asks conversationally.

“Both?” It wasn’t intended to sound like a question, but fuck if I know. Maybe I’m cursed. Or maybe a happy ending was never in the cards for me to begin with.

Daniel bobs his head in understanding. “Relationships are bullshit.”

“You don’t mean that,” I argue, tilting my head back at Ren and Cole. “Look how happy they are. That’s not bullshit.”

“They’re freaks,” he says with a laugh. “The way I see it, it’s like winning the lottery. Do some people win? Of course. But it’s only enough people to keep the rest of us scratching duds the rest of our lives.”

“That’s goddamn depressing,” I sigh.

“Shit, I’m supposed to be cheering you up, not making it worse,” he says, pulling an apologetic face. “What I meant was everyone totally finds their soulmate and lives happily ever after. If they didn’t, then we’d all have to sue rom coms and like boycott all music, and hell, I don’t know, the Fleshjack company would go out of business.”

“I’m not sure that any of that checks out, but thanks for trying.”

About The Author

20200520_125931

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.

Screwed teaser 5

Ollie and Daniel are a swoony dream finale to the Four Bears

54675394._SY475_Screwed by K.M. Neuhold

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

K.M. saves the best for last.

Throughout this whole series I’ve been waiting for Ollie’s story and it did not disappoint at all. I was also really happy that it was Daniel who proved to be the perfect person as he also really needed to discover that forever can happen.

Together they were on fire, the chemistry oozes between them, even when they’re supposedly only friends and the whole fake marriage trope gets a refreshing update when a drunken Vegas wedding (Ollie’s fourth!) becomes not only a solid and meaningful friendship, but a true partnership based on mutual respect and affection.

It’s ridiculously swoony and romantic as they just slowly drift into actually being married and in a proper relationship without Daniel ever realising that’s just what he’s doing.

Ollie is more aware, he knows he’s falling for his Husband as Daniel constantly refers to himself as in a somewhat joking fashion but it takes a really solid shock to the system – and a kick up the backside by his best friend Ren – for him to admit the truth.

The ending is beyond gorgeous! I just adored everything about it and I am so glad that the wait was worth it.

Now I need the spin-off series STAT because we get a new bear introduced in this one which I’m absolutely intrigued by and also because West/Sawyer is also going to be a doozy I can just tell!

Blurb

I’ve spent forty-four years of my life telling the world I’m a carpet man. Is it too late to admit to myself and everyone else that deep down I’m really all about the Hardwood?

It took me over thirty-five years to admit to myself that I’m gay, another seven to find the courage to say it out loud to anyone else, and exactly thirty seconds to develop a massive crush on my daughter’s music teacher. It’s really not my fault, have you even seen those cute bowties he wears?

After everything it’s taken to get here, am I going to work up the nerve to come out to my ex-wife and my best friends? Am I ready to shake up my comfortable, simple life and take a chance on Watson? Or am I going to throw a wrench in my own chance for happily ever after?

***Hardwood is a steamy, seriously so much delicious tension, single-dad, gay awakening, low angst story, which happens to be the third in the Four Bears Construction Series. It CAN be read as a stand-alone. There are NO shifters in this series, only the OTHER kind of bears.

Excerpt

It must be nice to be handy. My kitchen sink has had a small drip for a year that I’ve pretty much just ignored because I don’t know what else to do with it,” he confesses.

“I can take a quick look next time I come over. I’m no plumber, but it’s probably something basic. You might just need a good caulking.”

“Tell me about it,” he agrees. “Oh caulking. Yeah, totally, that.”

I quirk an eyebrow at him and laugh when his face goes red. “If anyone’s mind should be in the gutter, shouldn’t it be mine?”

“There’s plenty of room down here for all of us,” he assures me.

I show him to the living room, realizing once we sit down that I left my laptop out and open when I left the house earlier.

“Oh shit.” I close it quickly so he can’t see what I was looking at.

“Porn?” he guesses. “Don’t be shy, if you found something good, you really should share it with your friends.”

“It wasn’t porn. Although, that goes both ways, feel free to send me any interesting porn links you find.”

“Honey, I’m not sure you want to open that floodgate. But if you’re feeling brave, I’m sure I could fill up your inbox with links,” Watson says, grinning wickedly. My cock perks up at the image of him enjoying himself with some porn. Without my permission, my eyes dart to the crotch of his pants.

He laughs again, letting me know I’m totally busted. “And you’re claiming I’m the one with my mind in the gutter.” He tsks and shakes his head. “So, if it wasn’t porn, what’s so secret on your laptop?”

“It’s nothing,” I lie.

“Come on, we’re best friends, you said so yourself.”

“I was setting up a dating profile,” I confess. “I didn’t finish it though. It’s probably a bad idea.”

“Let me see.” he insists, waving at me to open the laptop back up.

“It’s bad,” I warn, opening it up and logging on. I pass him the computer and sit back to wait as he reads my half-finished profile.

There’s a half smile on his lips as his eyes are glued to the screen. I watch as different emotions pass over his features as he reads— amusement, tenderness, a cringe or two.

“This isn’t horrible,” he says.

“It’s not great,” I hedge.

“No, it’s not,” Watson agrees. “It’s fixable though, if you’re serious about posting it.”

“I don’t know,” I admit. “I started it on a whim this morning while I was sitting here thinking about my friend’s wedding coming up in six months and how much I’d love to have a date to take.”

“You want my honest opinion?” he asks.

“Please,” I say emphatically, sitting forward with my elbows on my knees, ready to hear whatever truth he’s about to lay on me.

“These sites are great for hookups, but not so much for finding the kind of guy you’ll want to take to a friend’s wedding.”

I sigh. “I kind of figured as much.” Leaning back, I pull my hat off and toss it onto the coffee table, dragging my fingers through my hair. “Where do I go to find the kind of guy I’d want to take to a wedding then?”

Watson snorts a laugh. “Babe, if I knew that, I wouldn’t be forty and living alone with a hedgehog.”
