SUMMARY
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.

MY THOUGHTS

Tangled is the first book in the Tangled series by Emma Chase.  The main characters are Drew Evans and Katherine Brooks.

Tangled was freaking hilarious!  As a reader, I loved hearing the story unfold from Drew’s point of view.  Yes,  a mans point of view was needed for this book.  Drew was obnoxious, conceited, and full of himself, yet it worked and I fell in love with his character.  Personally, I wasn’t a big fan of Kate in this book, but she started to grow on me with the last half of the story.

While I can say that I laughed out loud too many times to count with this story,  It did feel a little too long and drawn out.  Also, at times it came across as trying too hard to bring the funny and comical dialogue.  This is not to say I didn’t enjoy it, but at times it was “enough is enough”.

If you are looking for a romance from a male point of view — without it being sugar coated and mushy at all times — then give this hilarious read a chance to grace your reading list.  With laugh out loud moments aplenty, you won’t feel so bad about calling it a guilty pleasure buy!
