Review – Screwed Up by Harloe Rae

59487581. sy475

Screwed Up; Bayside Heroes #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 13, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Harloe Rae

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars



A sweet, contemporary romance filled with fun dates and a no-string relationship that becomes so much more.

Larson approaches Dane for a no-strings arrangement to let off some steam from her high pressure job and Dane is the new security guard at the hospital that would normally not be the type of man she would date. This makes him the perfect man for not getting attached since he’s all about fun and not settling down.

Larson Belle and Dane Owens come from two different backgrounds and lead very different lives, but could Belle keep her Beast even if that wasn’t the agreement to begin with?

Their relationship moves pretty quick, but it is a no-strings relationship after all. Larson and Dane are steamy and have their own kinks, which was nice to see the buttoned up Dr. Belle loosen her lab coat.

This is a standalone story, but it does weave through the other characters of Bayside and what they may be going through in their own relationships too. It was nice to know who’s who, but not necessary to follow along in this particular storyline.


“He might be wrong, but I’m tired of being right.”

The extreme focus on my career has led to a lonely existence.
I don’t make time for much beyond the hospital walls.
And the pressure is getting to me.

Those who know me best highly recommend I take the edge off by any means necessary.
As it turns out, the new security guard at Bayside Regional is just what the doctor ordered.

Dane Owens is a disaster waiting to happen.
Maybe that’s why I can’t look away.
He plays fast and loose with no plans of slowing down.
Especially when it comes to dating.

We’re polar opposites, which is precisely why this arrangement is temporary.
But there’s plenty to keep us occupied until our expiration date.

All I need is for Dane to follow the rules that long.

A Bayside Heroes standalone romance.
