Book Review: Tangled by Emma Chase

Lines Tangled

Book Synopsis (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, and 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 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 in life he never wanted is the only thing he can’t live without.

My Review:

Drew Evans is a successful businessman, a charming and non-strings attached guy who is used to have his way, but then this “golden boy” meets his match in the form of Kate Brooks and with that, everything he has known and believed starts to change.

I was totally hooked since page one and it was impossible to put down this book, the reason?  The story is funny, romantic and truly engaging.

I loved the characters, Drew and Kate are interesting and likeable and there’s also some support characters that I enjoyed reading about, like Alexandra (Drew’s sister) and Drew’s sweet and witty niece, Mackenzie.

My favorite thing about this book is the way is written. I loved the narrative from Drew’s POV and being inside his head provided a lot of entertaining and hilarious moments.

The writing style is like if this character is talking to you, sharing what happened to him, this made me feel even more engaged to the story.

I mentioned on past reviews how much I love male POVs in the Books, but Drew’s POV is the best I’ve read and now, he’s one of my favorite male characters.

My rating:   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Do I recommend this book? Absolutely.

Will I read more books from this author? Definitely.
