Blurb 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.
I won this book in a giveaway. I could choose whatever book I wanted, but because I have such a hard time choosing books (read: I want them all!!!!!) I gave the organizer carte blanche to give me whatever book she fancied. She so wanted to give me this book, because she read the ARC and was blown away. So I had to wait for the release date. But by then I had other reading responsibilities, so I got to reading it just now. And BOY! Am I glad with her choice! Thank you Meagan!!!
This book was so so so fun! The main character was such a playboy but he was oh so fun! I loved and adored that it was written from his point of view, you don’t see a lot of books – ok romance books – evolving with and around the man’s POV. The author did a awesome job! I laughed and I cried and I read it in one sitting. You will not be able to resist Drew’s charm, I can tell you that! But it’s not just the charms he lays on you as a playboy, he has depth, although he would like you to think otherwise. And although the book isn’t that particularly long – in pages and in time passing in the book – you do see a lot of character development there. I loved that. I for one, cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. Who am I kidding, if all of Emma Chase’s books are this good, I’m going to stalk everything she writes!
