In New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase’s sizzling and hilarious debut novel, Drew Evans—gorgeous, arrogant, irreverent, and irresistibly charming—meets his match in new colleague Kate Brooks.
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.

“I see something I want and I go after it. I’m used to getting what I want.”
Meet Drew Evans, the handsome, arrogant, wealthy, top-notch investment banker with a love for the ladies – well, not really love, more like “wham, bam, thank you ma’am”, time for another but never the same one twice. At least that’s how he normally is, but lately he’s been holed up in his apartment with the “flu”…riiight, that’s what it is. When his sister finally comes to see if he’s still alive, he admits that it finally happened…he went and fell in love, but he screwed everything up. Let’s go back in time a few months and find out what actually happened…
Drew is a lady’s man. His Saturday night ritual involves going to the club and finding a girl (or two) to satisfy his “needs”. After all, sex for a guy is purely physical, an itch that needs to be scratched, and every girl he’s with knows this up front. One night, he meets a gorgeous dark-haired angel in a red dress and he knows he has to have her. When she doesn’t give in (because she’s engaged) he’s intrigued and determined to change her mind, until a set of twins offers him a good time…why work for it when you’ve got willing volunteers? Still, he can’t get her out of his head…
Drew has a rule about not sleeping with anyone he works with. This has never really been a problem until Monday morning, when his father introduces him to a new employee and it’s HER…the angel from the bar…Katherine Brooks. He thinks he can control his need for her, but every time she comes near, he just can’t help himself. Until his father tells Drew that Kate is competing with him for a new account…then it’s on. The only thing more important to Drew than women is his job, and a newbie is NOT stealing his thunder. This is the start of a month long fight for the account, consisting of sabotage, pranks, and stooping to childish levels, along with sexual tension that is off the charts.
Kate’s been with her fiancé for 10 years, and at this point it’s more a friendship than anything else, but she won’t cheat on him, even though Drew knows she wants him just as much as he wants her. At some point, his feelings for her went from just wanting a one-nighter to get her out of his system, to actually wanting a relationship with her, something he’s never had before. Drew has shown he’s the epitome of an asshole on more than one occasion, but can he convince Kate to actually give him a shot? Could Kate be the one to tame Drew, or has he screwed it up before if ever got started?
Tangled is told solely from Drew’s point of view and I absolutely LOVED it! It gives you a crystal clear view of the inner workings of a man’s mind, however crude it may be, and is full of (what I assume) is pretty accurate wisdom and advice. If you’re a fan of Alice Clayton, Tangled is right up your alley. If you’re looking for a laugh-out-loud, can’t-put-it-down, quick read, you won’t be disappointed with Tangled.
