Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed?
He’ll tell you he has the flu.
But we all know that’s not really true.
Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything – or anyone – derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.
Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life?
Can Drew Evans win at love?
Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.
Tamie: 5 hearts of book perfection!
Oops! I did it again…I gave you my rating first. See…that right there tells you how strongly I FLOVE this book…another thing…I’ve seen peeps say on twitter and Goodreads that they loved a book so much that they wanted to marry it…I’ve had some books that I feel that way about…Tangled by Emma Chase is one of those.
If you just happen to love a story that combines romance with the sexy in a very well written way + you also love it when the writer adds just the perfect amount of funny to all that…and then…can you stand it… it’s also written from the male POV?!? Well…you’d probably feel like you’ve been given a great, big, huge slice of book heaven right?!? THAT, is exactly what you’ll get with Tangled my fellow book lovers!
Drew will own you completely…even when he’s being an absolute ass…which is rather often…he admits it. How can you not love a guy who’s willing to own up to it? He’s also gorgeous, smart, snarky as all get out, ambitous, erm…sexually gifted…need I go on?!?
But…he’s met his match when Katherine Brooks joins the family business…yup…she can dish it out just as good as Drew can. She’s fierce and feisty and just as smart as Drew is, and when these two go toe to toe? It’s just fabulous to read the sparks that fly. The attraction and passion between the two of them even before they hook up is SOOOOOOOOO good. You’ll be rooting for this couple to become a couple long before it happens.
Are there issues? Of course there are…what good would it be without a little angst thrown in to keep us frantically reading? It’s not too much and it’s not too little…
Like I said at the beginning…this book gets 5 hearts from me. I cannot wait for you to read it, and whatever Emma Chase writes next?!? I’m already there.
I’ll begin this review by saying that I loved everything about this book. And I do mean everything. This pretty much sums up how I feel about Tangled, but let’s see why I believe this story is absolutely awesome, shall we?
First off, Drew Evans. He’s sexy, smart, confident and ambitious. He has everything one could hope for, but one thing lacks in his life — true love. He’s never experienced it and he doesn’t really want to, until Kate Brooks enters his life.
Kate is an amazing female character — she’s determined, strong, and she knows what she wants. She’s not that kind of woman who can be won easily and she challenges Drew in ways he’d never thought possible.
The passion between them is palpable from the very first moment they meet, and it’s always there, in every scene. There is some angst, of course, but would you believe me if I told you that I loved those scenes even more than the romantic ones? Yes, because in those moments Drew really shines — he shows how passionate a man he is and how he’d do anything in his power to win the trust and the heart of the woman he loves…
The book is written in Drew’s POV and let me tell you that Emma Chase did an outstanding job. We finally get to read a man’s musings and it’s quite the enjoyable ride (no pun intended 😉 ) Drew is not just sexy, but he’s pretty damn funny. There are so many lines that made me laugh out loud and believe me, you’ll love Drew’s sense of humor! There’s amazing dialogue, with a capital A.
Tangled is a book that has everything — gripping romance, sizzling and well written love scenes, great humor…Seriously, read it NOW.
Oh and the real heroine of the story? Mackenzie, Drew’s little niece…You’ll see… 😉
I give Tangled 5 stars. Emma, you have a new fan 😉
**Elena and I received a copy of Tangled from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. DOOD! We honestly floved it so hard!**
