There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself – and of me.

But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I ha

3 This Was NOT what I was expecting Stars

First off, I apologize for all Tangled fans. I gave Tangled 6 stars. I loved it so much I could re-read it a million times. I was very excited about Twisted and just couldn’t believe my eyes that I finally landed a copy.

Sorry, I need to take a moment before I begin my rant review.

Twisted is the story about Kate and Drew’s going through problems after Tangled. I want to say, I am very happy this isn’t a recap from Tangled. Since Emma Chase waited so long t

After having read and enjoyed Holy Frigging Matrimony: A Tangled Series Short Story back in December 2013, I interviewed Drew for the Berner Zeitung for the first time. I have decided to do another interview. Brace yourselves coz Baba is not in the best of mood and she gotta give it to them straight.

**FULL REVIEW - No quotes...No spoilers**

Expectations for Twisted, I think, are very put it mildly.

This is not anything like I'd expected. Twisted is not another Tangled ....just as good, but quite different. This has a more serious tone, is not quite as funny. But still steamy, romantic, and fun.

Told (mostly) from Kate's point-of-view Twisted is set two years down the track.


Drew (unsurprisingly) stuffs up.


And Kate is not happy.

Not all love stories end happily ever after.

After hearing there was going to be a sequel for Tangled, I was stoked. I couldn’t wait to be back in Drew Evan’s head. Wait... did someone say this WASN’T from Drew’s pov? I was a bit hesitant of how this would be, reading from Kate’s pov and not Drew’s. I have to say bravo to the author. Emma Chase nailed Kate’s pov. I was shocked that it was almost as good as Drew’s for me. Kate was funny and although I wanted to see

Skimming pages is NEVER a good sign...

I refuse to believe this book was written by the same person who's written Tangled.

I loved Tangled.

This book?



You know, when you pull an elastic band, and then leave it.. it hurts us only in the bargain.

This book was like that elastic band, being pulled to the brim and then left, which hurts us readers.. because after TANGLED.. This book didn't live up.

I only liked the epilogue of this book, because it was written in Drew's POV.

SPOILER FREE REVIEW: This is a hard story to review without spoilers, but I will do my absolute best. If you loved Tangled and plan to read this book, I fully recommend you skip reading reviews period. Just get the book and dive in, seriously. You will thank me!!

You know that saying, "It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?"
That's a crock. Whoever said it didn't know a fucking thing about love. Ignorance is better; it's painless."

And truthfully, after the 35% mark, I'd rather have had the pie...

Last we saw Kate and Drew, they were together and basking in lots of post coital glow. I wasn't really sure why a second book was necessary, but I loved Tangled and Emma Chase's writing, so there was no question ab

★★★ 3 stars!

I liked it but I didn't love it...

The many misunderstandings and general lack of communication made me roll my eyes more times than I could count and they kind of ruined the book for me...

BUT it was still an enjoyable solid read and I'm still a big fan of the author's writing style so I'll definitely read the next book in the series when it comes out. Maybe my expectations of this one were just a bit too high since Tangled was one of my favorite reads of 2013.

Full review to come.

Thanks to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books (via Netgalley) I won’t be reading & reviewing my ARC for Twisted. Instead I’ll be wallowing in self-pity!

Okay, so this second books picks up two years after the end of Tangled, and show us the life of Drew and Kate.

If you read this book expecting another Tangled you'll be sorely disappointed. This book is nothing like it's predecessor and that's why I loved it.

Don't get me wrong. I loved Tangled but Twisted shows a side to Emma Chase that we've never seen before. In a way, Twisted is more fleshed out than Tangled. The plot was solid and it could have gone horribly wrong and cliched but Emma Chase stuck with it and executed it really well.

Don't get me wrong, I still love Emma Chase to death and enjoy her writing overall but I just didn't love this one. I will still be reading Dee Dee's book. I'm not going to spoil it and I'll also say I would still encourage you to read it because you may love it.

Kate and Drew are remarkable characters. I grew to love them in Tangled and continuation of their story in Twisted doesn’t disappoint. But while in Tangled we got insight into male head, this instalment shows us female perspective of relationships. Two years later, new problems, different approach, same characters. That is Twisted.

Well, if you thought Drew's voice was hilarious, and can't wait to read more from him about his relationship with Kate?
Go somewhere else.
Yeah, this whole book (other than a little epilogue thingy) is told from Kate's point of view. And while I love Kate, she's just not as funny. So, no, this book does not have the same kind vibe as Tangled. I'm not saying that to keep you from reading Twisted, I just want to warn you to get your expectations in check. It's still a good roma

This is the continuing story of Drew and Kate told from Kate's POV. They have been together for two years and for the most part, things have been really good. That is, until a big misunderstanding takes place and things just get ugly.

I really enjoyed Kate's POV although I was surprised at how much she sounded like Drew. I liked that we got to know more of her history and the town where she grew up.

Drew was a bit surprising. I would have thought after two years he would be more trusting. Howeve

You know that scene with Chris Evans when at Jimmy Fallon's show and talking about his nephew that couldn't pronounce the "L" correctly and instead came out "W"? Yap, that's me! I DON'T "WIKE" IT !!!!!!

I am a huge fan of Tangled and sincerely Drew was the funniest hero in all my reading history, which is not poor at all. I laughed so much, until tears came out. He was hilarious and sometimes so immature that I wanted to punch him in the face for hurting Kate and jumping to stupid conclusions

Twisted is book two in the Tangled series by Emma Chase. This book is told entirely from Kate’s point of view, except for the epilogue. I loved getting inside of Kate’s head. She is one tough woman. She has to be, right?! She lives with the infamous Drew Evans, has for two years now.

Their relationship is going strong. They live the life most couples only dream of. They take off for exotic weekends whenever they want. They work hard, play hard and love each other completely. But when yo

This book just about broke my heart. It’s not all sunshine and roses for Drew and Kate, and that’s all I can say without spoilers. It was tough reading for a while and I had to wipe away some tears as I whispered “no”… There’s one HUGE misunderstanding that places the whole relationship in jeopardy; hurtful things were said and hurtful actions (on Drew’s part) had me wondering “can this relationship ever be the same?” Oh, did my heart ache for them. But there’s a reason for all the angst--Kate a ...more

Together they are epic. They jumped into the romance world with the amazingly witty and well written Tangled. It comes as no surprise that they would not simply ride off into the sunset.

I love Drew and I love Kate, but this misunderstandings/miscommunication was too much for my little heart. I still love this series, but this was definitely not my favorite.

3 stars

The continuation for Kate and Drew's story but told in Kate's POV. Book 1 was special but this sequel was missing alot of things:
-I missed being inside Drew's head
-I missed the sexy time
-I missed the lol moments

Some things got me really mad:
-I didnt like the direction of the book
-I didn't like how Drew handled things
-I didnt like Kates POV I found her trying too hard to sound like Drew

Was there anything I liked for it to have earned 3 stars?
yes... I love love loveee the epilogue!!!
