Review: Tangled (Tangled #1) by Emma Chase


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.

My Review

This book is from Drew’s POV. I like reading books that have the guy’s POV. We often find that the guy is completely at a loss as to why the female lead is behaving the way she is. (And vice versa.)

Aestas Book Blog reviewed this book and at the top it said:

Hilarious, romantic, all-out FUN!!

Think Wallbanger meets Beautiful Bastard 🙂

You smiling yet?

Wallbanger and Beautiful Bastard were good books in my opinion. Wallbanger has me laughing out loud and Beautiful Bastard was hot (even if Bennett Ryan was frustrating.) But this review isn’t about those books. Quit distracting me! I need to focus. Geez.

I loved reading the book from Drew’s POV. He was funny. I laughed out loud as I was reading. (It is super difficult to quiet laugh in the middle of the night while reading in bed as to not wake anyone up.) His mind was so complex. Every thought was deep and meaningful.

When you’re telling us about the sappy film you watched with your girlfriends last week, we’re thinking about the porno we saw on cable last night.

Well… if you don’t know what deep and meaningful means…and if you use the word complex very loosely. I’m kidding. That is just one line from the book. Give the man a chance. Don’t be so judgmental. My goodness!

I love it when books mention things that I also like. The Notebook. (In an interview, the author even said she could see Ryan Gosling playing Drew in a movie. I can’t remember where I saw the review. If I find it I will add the link. )

I am adding this quote upon request.

Edward Cullen can take his stupid heroin and OD on it.

He doesn’t say it for the reason you might think either! Don’t start hating on him if you are in love with Mr. Cullen. I thought we agreed you were going to give the man a chance? There we go. Good for you!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a little over 200 pages and I was kinda sad it was over. Sometimes I start a book and it just doesn’t grab me right away so I switch to another and go back. This was not one of those books!

This is a happy book. Read it!
