Tangled (Tangled, #1)


by Emma Chase
5 of 5 stars

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.

Main Characters

My Drew Evans

Drew Evans: Black hair, 28 and a bit of a douche. Mind you, he’s not a mean douche, just a regular douche who is used to geing “God’s Gift”. Don’t worry, he grows on you, I promise. He is an investment

My Kate Brooks

Katherine “Everyone-Calls-Me-Kate” Brooks: She is very intelligent with dark hair and dark eyes. She has a petite frame and is in good shape. An investment banker and a shark at work.


If it were not for the beginning of the book, where we see the effect of love on Drew (basically turning him into a hot mess), it would be easy to dislike Drew. He is talented, and knows it. He is sexy, and knows it. He is successful, and knows it. Not digging Drew? Just wait… wait until Kate enters the picture. It is wonderful!

Vaginas beat penises every time.
They’re like kryptonite.
Penises are defenseless against them.

The entire book reads as if Drew himself is talking to you and gives you a disturbing, but accurate glimpse into the male psyche.

Newsflash, ladies: We can’t read your thoughts. And frankly, I’m not entirely sure I’d want to. The female mind is a scary place to be.

Drew’s attempt at cooking had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. In fact, that was the case for most of the book.

“Did you mix the flour with water before you added it?”
Water? Martha didn’t say anything about water. That bitch.

This book has the rare ability to allow the main character (Drew) to grow without drastically altering his personality. I’m sure I am not the only one that can’t stand it when characters lose all of their “fire” in the process of growing.
