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.
Tangled is funny, steamy and romantic. I am so angry that I waited so long to read this!
I have heard so many great things about this book and finally I know why. I loved this! Tangled isn’t your typical romance story since it is written in the male point-of-view. This made the book so much fun to read. Drew Evan’s is handsome and wealthy. It is a lethal combination and women are eager to jump into his bed. Except for one women – Kate Brooks. They meet at a club and his charm has no power over her. That is the beginning of a new adventure for Drew and it was hilarious reading his inner dialogue. His views on women, sex, family and business were chauvinistic but had me laughing out loud. It was such a nice change to read his struggles with dealing with his attraction towards Kate and the affect she unknowingly had on him.
The love scenes were steamy and romantic. The scenes with his family were precious and hilarious. But what I loved the most of Tangled was the humor the author shares in her writing. Author Emma Chase mentioned Braveheart, A Christmas Story and The Notebook, all of which I love. It felt as if the author knew me so well and those scenes were written to make me smile. I am now in love with Emma Chase and I have to read more from this series!
I had the pleasure of meeting Emma Chase last year (check out my post). I wish I can see her again and tell her how much I loved this book!
