Release Day Review & Excerpt: Tamed by Emma Chase!

Posted July 15, 2014 by Holly in Blog Tour, Excerpt, Releases, Reviews / 0 Comments

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: girl meets player, they fall in love, player changes his ways.

It’s a good story. But it’s not our story. Ours is a lot more colorful.


When I met Dee I knew right away that she was special. When she met me, she thought I was anything but special—I was exactly like every other guy who’d screwed her over and let her down. It took some time to convince her otherwise, but turns out I can make a convincing argument when sex is at stake.


You might know where this story’s headed. But the best part isn’t where we ended up.


It’s how we got there.



TAMED goes back in time to the Tangled days. But this time around, it’s not Drew dishing out the advice and opinions—it’s his best friend Matthew, who of course is dealing with Dee Dee.

She puts on the helmet, but doesn’t climb on the Ducati right away. She stands on the sidewalk, hands on her hips, looking thoughtfully at it. “What would you say if I said I wanted to drive your motorcycle to the party?”
“I’d say you’re shit out of luck. I don’t ride bitch.”
She knocks me upside the head—but my helmet softens the blow. “Then let me take it for a ride myself. Just around the block.”
“I . . .don’t think so.”
She pouts.
I sigh. “Have you ever driven a motorcycle before?”
“No, but I’ve always wanted to.”
“Well, I’ve always wanted to fly, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna strap on a squirrel suit and skydive from the god damn Empire State Building.”
She steps closer, and rubs her placating hands up my chest. “Come on, please? I’ll be really careful and grateful. Really grateful. Like . . .deviantly, let you handcuff me to the bed, kind of grateful.”
Forget the national broadcast system—this is the test. Am I going to stick to my man-guns, keep my pride, and protect my cherished vehicle from almost certain carnage? Or, am I going to be ruled by my dick and swayed by the promise of kinky, have-Dee-at-my-mercy-all-night-long, sex?
No contest.
“Riding bitch, it is.”
Tamed is an excellent addition to this series! Matthew and Dee’s story has the all of the humor, witty dialogue and hot sexy moments we’ve come to love from Emma. Up till now Matthew and Dee have been the sidekicks more or less so I was happy to see them on their own here. Matthew truly is a great guy; he’s a hard worker, he’s good looking, confident, even romantic. I like that with Dee he focuses on smaller gestures to show his feelings and unlike Drew- he never made me want to choke the ever loving life out of him! Delores on the other hand wasn’t what I was expecting…and I loved that! I loved getting to see a softer more vulnerable side to her. She was still feisty and definitely the firecracker we know her to be but she let her guard down here. The road to true love is never smooth and goodness know Matt & Dee have their speed bumps and pot holes but this journey was definitely worth the ride! 
I plowed through Tamed in 4 hours and still want more from these two. Emma has a knack for hilarious dialogue and fun characters. Everything she writes is pure gold. 
By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother who resides in a small town in New Jersey. By night she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.
Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.
