[R] Tangled PLUS others stories, by: Emma Chase

(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.

What does Drew Evans have to say next? Find out in this forty page short story, filled with his sexy charm, unique advice and hilarious one-liners.

Marriage: the final frontier. Steven went first. He was kind of our test subject. Like those monkeys that NASA sent off into space in the fifties, all the while knowing they’d never make it back.

And now another poor rocket is ready to launch.

But this isn’t just any posh New York wedding. You’ve seen my friends, you’ve met our families, you know you're in for a treat. Everyone wants their wedding to be memorable. This one’s going to be un-frigging-forgettable.

Holy Frigging Matrimony takes place about a year after Tangled’s end and is from Drew’s POV.
my thoughts

What a ride! I never thought that I was going to read something like this. It was great, hilarious and sweet, but cliché (just a little). But I still like it, but I love even more the short stories. It made me laugh like a madwoman. I had these books in my TBR quite some time, so I decided to give it a try. It wasn't a five stars read, but definitely worth it.

The beginning of this book... Drew telling us how he got there. On a couch watching TV, eating take out and complaining of having the flu. When the truth is, he is "depressed" over fucking over his love life. He takes us back where everything began and it wasn't like any other story. She was engaged, building her life above him and hating his guts because he had everything she wanted. After realizing that she was just a charm, he began to hate her guts, but his dick was being just that a dick. Things escalated quickly until they both fell in love, but he was not having it and that hurt her. Now he is hurt because... well, you must read the book to get that part. Let's say that I didn't exactly knew how the book was going to end, until it did.

When I said cliché, I did not refer to the story persé, but to some kind of scenes that I knew were going to happen and they did. Apart from that the story is not like anyone I have read before. This one here is crude vocabulary, describing what really life is and how it feels living it. The streamy scenes are good, but nothing can match how he (Drew) tells the story.

Talking about his other stories, we have the Extra Scenes, which are a bunch of scenes quite funny, and Holy Frigging Matrimony, which is a short story of Delores and Matthew's wedding day. Some of the stories are from Kate's POV and I kind of did not like it. But Drew's POV keeps getting better and better, seriously, that dude is THE dude. Plus the stories keeps you interested in reading the other books, which I'm trying to get into them. Overall, if you want a good laugh read the books!
