By Emma Chase
I am sooooo behind in this review, as I read this a while ago. But I really liked it and couldn’t NOT review it. So, here we go!
I think I am an Emma Chase fan. The more I read from her, the more I like. Her Royally series? Very entertaining. Getting Schooled? Adorable! But this one? Tangled positively had me in stitches! There’s a scene at a holiday dinner involving an olive… I still giggle thinking about it!
Drew Evans is a driven investment banker who fears commitment as much as I fear clowns (you don’t know me, but that’s A LOT). But since Katherine Brooks came into his life, he’s been beside himself. And when she ended things? He became sick with the flu. At least that’s what he’ll tell you.
Normally cocky man-whores are automatic turnoffs for me in novels, but Drew manages to make me like him anyway. Maybe it’s his innate humor. I will overlook a lot for a man who’s funny.
What I most appreciated about this book is that Drew constantly breaks the fourth wall, speaking directly to the reader. He’s like a powerful, sexy Ferris Beuller. And it made it really easy to see this book made into a film. Hello? Passionflix? Are you reading this???
The audiobook is read by Sebastian York and his deep melodic voice exudes alpha manliness. It’s perfect for Drew. This is a must-listen if not a must-read.
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
“For God’s sake, don’t let her watch Cinderella. What kind of example is that? A mindless twit who can’t even remember where she left her damn shoe, so she has to wait for some douchebag in tights to bring it to her? Give me a frigging break!”
“He moved his trunk-like manhood toward the weeping petals of her womanly center.’
Who the f*ck talks like that?!”
“Mackenzie raises her hand proudly. “I have a bagina.”
I smirk. “Yes, you do sweetheart. And someday, it’s gonna help you rule the world.”
