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, and 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 in life he never wanted is the only thing he can’t live without.
Hands down Tangled is the funniest book I’ve read so far this year! It’s an absolute perfect blend of comedy,
romance, and sex told entirely from a male POV, you almost feel as if our main character Drew is right in front of you telling you his tale of woe. When we first meet Drew he starts off by telling us he’s been holed up in his apt for a week because he’s sick with the flu but after 5 minutes his sister and one of his best friends bust in like the police and we find out the real reason for Drew’s “illness”
“It finally happened.” “What happened?” “What you’ve been wishing on me all these years,” I whisper. “I fell in love.”
That make me laugh out loud! I felt like Drew was equating falling in love to a fate worse than death.
His sister finally convinces him to tell her what happened so she can fix things and that’s where the hilarity begins! Drew takes us back in time to when/where he first met Kate (Katherine). We find out exactly what happened between them, we re-live the exact moment where Drew messes everything up and his over the top ways to try and fix it. We learn all about his man whoring ways, not to mention he spills some classified “man” secrets
“For those ladies out there who are listening, let me give you some free advice: If a guy who you just met at a club calls you baby, sweetheart, angel, or any other generic endearment? Don’t make the mistake of thinking he’s so into you, he’s already thinking up pet names. It’s because he can’t or doesn’t care to remember your actual name”
and this gem…commit this one to memory ladies!!!
“First of all, if a chick wants me to respect her, she needs to act like someone worth respecting. Second, I’m not trying to be a dick; I’m just being a guy. And all guys talk to their friends about sex”
He and Kate were excellent together; she didn’t take his BS and wasn’t phased by his money & good looks, she put him in his place without question and I loved her for it. Seeing them go back and forth made me giggle like the Pillsbury dough boy!
“You’re used to being number one around here. You’re used to being daddy’s special little man. Well, there’s a new player in town. Deal with it. I’ve worked damn hard to get this job, and I plan on making a name for myself. You don’t like sharing the spotlight? Too bad. You can either make room for me at the table, or I’ll step on you when you get in my way. Either way, you can bet your ass I’ll get there”
Although, as much as I loved Kate and Drew’s scene’s together his scene’s with his niece Mackenzie stole the story; that little girl could make him bend to her will on command…he also gave her great advice constantly
“And for God’s sake, don’t let her watch Cinderella. What kind of example is that? A mindless twit who can’t even remember where she left her damn shoe, so she has to wait for some douchebag in tights to bring it to her? Give me a frigging break.”
and this he tells her
“Johnny Fitzgerald’s an idiot. Vaginas beat penises every time. They’re like kryptonite. Penises are defenseless against them.”
I swear 85% of Tangled is highlighted in my Kindle…I absolutely can’t wait to see what other books Emma has in store for us but I know no matter what it is I will be reading whatever she writes in the future!
This is a 5 star book and beyond!!!
