Tangled by Emma Chase

Overview by Amazon:

Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. 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. 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.

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. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.

So this book has been out for a while, but I keep meaning to read it. It has been a cold and dreary weekend and I thought it was a perfect time to laugh and enjoy this book.

What makes this book so unique is that it is told from the perspective of the male lead character, Drew. He is at times an insufferable ass, but really honest. He provides all sorts of insights into the male mind. I really want to ask the author how she developed this character. In fact, with each admission or wisdom he shared, I wanted to know if men really think this way and if so, who told her?!

Drew is confident, engaging and spoiled. He has a very active sex life and follows bachelorhood rules to the T. He works at his father’s investment firm and has been very successful. Like, really successful! His world tilts on it’s access when he meets Kate. Not only is she beautiful, but she has the brains and the business acumen to challenge him. Drew vacilitates between wanting to have hot, passionate sex and beating her at business. The battle between the two was really hot and fun! I think that is what I enjoyed so much about this story. It was fun! It made me laugh – a lot! Seeing Drew get knocked down a peg or two was really enjoyable.

The love story between Kate and Drew was really well developed. I loved how their wants and needs were deeply explored. The author really works hard to create a relationship that makes you feel desperate to see a happy ending. Each time Drew acted like an idiot or Kate walked away, my heart was in my throat. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next to them!

While this story may seem really light hearted, it does have deep emotional moments. At times, it made me cry. I found this book to be really fulfilling as well as enjoyable. The novelty of having it told from the male perspective was not a gimmick and regardless of what person shared the tale, it still was an amazing romance.

If you are like me and haven’t got around to reading this book yet, make time one lazy afternoon and you won’t be sorry!
