Tangled (Tangled #1) by Emma Chase

Tangled (Tangled, #1)

From goodreads: 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.

This is a quick review for a book that I enjoyed immensely.  It’s fun, light and absolutely hilarious.  If you need a break from the dark and angsty novels we love…then read this book because it’ll give you the break you need.

Drew is an absolute pig and so full of himself that it was a little hard for me to like him right away but he was so funny that I could overlook his epic douche-like qualities.  Tangled is told from his POV which I found absolutely refreshing and it felt completely conversational the entire time, almost as if I was sitting on his couch and he’s telling me about his love for Kate.

The banter between Drew and Kate was hilarious and I couldn’t seem to get enough, I thought I might tire of it but I didn’t.  And Kate is one of those heroines you will absolutely love because she’s smart, fierce and isn’t a push-over.  Can I get an AMEN for strong female characters?? AMEN!!!

“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!”

Why the five stars? Five because it delivered in writing style, unique male character perspective the entire time and it was hilarious.  I’m totally looking forward to the second book in the series!!! ;)
