Somehow, it's always about the money. Sharon Saluda, in her junior year at Pisgah College, doesn't have nearly enough of it, and a diploma is her ticket out of the narrow confines of small town life in Jacob's Bluff, NC. A career as a stripper seems a promising solution, but when that ends badly, a desperate Sharon capitalizes on that most basic of needs—sex—by matching up college coeds with faculty clientele. Her job description takes a dramatic uptick when Connor Shaw arrives and wants her as his own—for a very good price, of course. She takes the plunge, body and soul, because this man is gorgeous, ridiculously wealthy, and the sex is out of this world. But there's always a catch…right?

I thought I knew what I was getting into when I picked this book up, but SCREWED takes me in unexpected directions that is both realistic and surprising.

I like the author's take in this story, especially with the prostitution part. He tells the story matter-of-factly, showing us how such a thing would've started, if indeed one were as enterprising and desperate for funds as Sharon Saluda. Then came Connor Shaw, and the author takes this part of the story in a surprising direction. The last part though comes from out of the blue, and which I feel is the weakest part of the story.

That said, I don't think this book can be classified as erotic romance. Instead, maybe it would've been better as general fiction. As to the romance, I felt it was underdeveloped. I can't say more because they would be spoilers, and I'd rather not spoil the read for you.

Rating is 3.5 stars.
