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.

4.5 Stars

“I’m fine,” when they really mean, “I want to cut your balls off with a butcher knife.” 

OMG! Where has this book been all my life? This was such a fun read; I am thoroughly entertained. I laughed, a lot. I couldn’t keep the constant grin off my face, except those times where I would inwardly groan and say to myself, “Oh, no you did not just do that?!” – Which I said multiple times. I mean that’s what you get when you read a story from a strictly male perspective. 

But here’s a fact for you – once I’m done, I’m done.I’m not the kind of guy who rides the same rollercoaster twice. Once is enough, and then the thrill is gone and so is the interest. 

Oh Drew, Drew, Drew…what am I going to do with you? Having his POV on everything was so fucking entertaining. Who knew?! This is a story of Drew, a man who up until recently had control of his life. He has the job, the money, the looks and a constant parade of women waiting to get a taste of him. Alas, ladies, he’s is the epitome of the love ‘em and leave ‘em type, until he goes does the one thing he swore he would never do: Fall in love.

When we first meet Drew, he isn’t really personifying the suave man we know him to be. He’s holed up in his apartment, apparently for seven days, claiming to have the flu. He’s a mess, no doubt, but does he really have the flu or is it something else entirely? 

I control my dick. My dick does not control me. 

Drew’s life turns upside down when he meets Kate Brooks. The moment he sets his eyes on her, he knew he had to have her – of course, preferably on her knees or beneath him…oh, how the male minds work…so typical. lol. He’s all lust, but unfortunately their initial meeting didn’t go as planned. However, it’s their second meeting that throws him a curveball: She’s actually his new associate, which is a no-no for him. Oh! And tack on the fact that Kate is actually engaged, it’s game over, right? Yea. No. He tries to convince himself she’s off limits, but you know exactly where this is heading. 

What’s that? Yes. I went to Catholic school. You’re surprised? You shouldn’t be. My profanity has a certain religious flavor that can only be learned through a lifetime of Catholic education. “Jesus H. Christ…Goddamn it…Jesus, Mary, and Joseph…fucking Christ Almighty…holy fucking shit – and that’s just what we heard from the priests. Don’t get me started on the nuns. 

Drew is fucked: It’s that plain and simple. He’s all Alpha male and when someone is sniffing around his territory, he goes ballistic. This is what happens when Drew and Kate are competing for the same account. It’s all out war between the two. Consider their endless bickering as verbal foreplay because the tension between the two does nothing but escalate and when it detonates, it’s explosive. Nothing is left the same ever again. 

I don’t want to run. I don’t even what to look away. And I don’t ever want to let go. 

I commend Kate’s character because she doesn’t make it easy for Drew. She makes him work for it and to see him practically crawling back, after doing something insanely stupid mind you, had me smiling non-stop. For readers concerned about cheating, no worries. Aside from one heated kiss, Kate is noble and never took it that far with Drew. She’s played Drew’s Achilles heel perfectly. I LOVED this story. It’s fresh, fun and entertaining as hell. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series. Perhaps it’ll be Matthew and Delores’ story? I can only hope :)

“Real guys don’t think like Nolan or Niles or whatever the hell that douchebag’s name was.” 
“And any man who would build a room in his house for some chick who blew him off? Any man would wait years for that same girl to show up at his door, knowing she was with someone else? He’s not a man at all.”
“What is he?”
“A big, hairy, unwaxed vagina.” 

See? Fucking hilarious. Must. Read.
