Start your review of Holy Frigging Matrimony (Tangled, #1.5)
This was a super-short "extra" for fans of the 'Tangled' series. As far as stories go, this was more like a teaser or a chapter of a story. It was a short, but entertaining glimpse into the lives of one of our favorite couples.

It has been so long that I'd forgotten many of the supporting characters. Since this was such a short read, I have to admit that all of the details didn't come back to me either. I think I waited too long after reading the first book to dive into this one. If I had read it

This was a sexy and hilarious short story told to us from Drew's POV that takes place a year after the end of Tangled. 

While it was a very quick read (about 40 pages), it also put a huge smile on my face! As you can guess from the title, it does take place at a wedding but.... there was a bit of a twist to it! ;)

Despite it's short length, the story was packed with sexy times...

Another dose of Drew Evans!


Emma Chase continues to spoil us with another treat through this short story which serves as a prequel to the next book, Twisted. At first I was kind of surprised because I really thought it will be 'their' wedding, but it wasn't. I was deceived. Lol. Buuut I loved all the scenes here. That fight between Billy and Drew was so hilarious af. And that shocking scene between Kate's mom and Steven's dad. *facepalms

Here's my favorite conversation between Drew and Kate:

I know, I know, it was way too short but a nice little teaser all the same. Cannot wait for the next book.
4 Hilarious Stars!

In this short story we have Drew, Kate and a wedding.
And exactly as everything where they are present, it will be awesome as hell.


This was a great way to have my Drew-fix before the next book comes out. I love him and his dirty mind and the way he just can’t help himself in saying /doing everything that comes into his mind.
It was a sexy, sweet and hilarious novella and this was basically my reaction through all the pages:


Can’t wait for their second book!!!

Drew Evans is hilarious! In this short story that takes place after Tangled, we get all Drew’s p.o.v. My only complaint- it was too short! It was like a little tease that left me wanting more.

Sweet, sexy, and funny as hell! I’m so excited for book 2, I can’t wait!!!

Here's the thing about Holy Frigging Matrimony. I loved it. And I hated it. What the hell? You're wondering. I know, I know. I must be crazy. I loved it so much because it was more Drew. I hated it because it was not enough Drew. But here's the thing about Drew Evans... you'll never, ever get enough.

That being said, I do think that my rating would probably be different if I'd been a paying customer. I know it says it's only 40 pages, but I d

Holy Fricking Matrimony is a quickie nouvella depicting the events of Delores and Matthew's wedding reception. In all Drew and Kate's hilarious relationship antics, we get another glimpse into the mind of Drew. He's childish, whorish, protective, and freaking hilarious! It's a quick half hour read full of comedy.

My Drew and Kate:

Do you remember Drew? This extra-snarky-super-awesome-sarcastic man that we had a pleasure to meet in Tangled? Of course, how could anyone forget him. Emma Chase comes again with story written in his POV, this time it is very short novella. It may be a really short one, but it lacks nothing in entertainment department.

Once again, Drew's thoughts made me laugh and I enjoyed reading this novella immensely. It wasn't what I expected, but I love to be surprised. And believe me when

Note: This is a forty page short story meant to hold readers over until the next full length novel Twisted is released in March.

It was wonderful but like everyone else says it was way too short! Not even a whole day in the life of Drew and Kate! And EM was a bit tricksy!

But at least we got a Drew fix till the next book, Twisted, which will be from Kate's POV. I'm definitely looking forward to that!

Here's hoping Drew never grows up!

Loved this novella!!
Drew Evans is still crazy sexy, lush, and laugh out loud hysterical!!

Of course you know there's going to be some dirty talking and hot sexy scenes!
But most importantly, there were so many times I just laughed so hard.
Drew always gets himself into trouble and poor Kate suffers from a bit of embarrassment.

Kate's ex, Billy, shows up at the wedding reception.
Drew is not happy that Kate still remained friends with Billy.

With the backdrop of a wedding, it provides the perfect setting for some crazy situations. Who can say no to more Drew Evans, even if it’s just forty pages? Yeah, not me! Loved this short story! Drew can’t stay out of trouble for long and his actions had me laughing out loud once again ♥

Being inside Drew's head is one of my favorite places to be. Yes, it's up there with the beaches of Bora Bora and streets of New York at Christmas time so, if you ever experienced either, you can just imagine how much I ♥ Drew!

I read this over breakfast this morning and laughed through the entire thing! Yes, Emma does this to you via Drew's thoughts which are absolutely hysterical!

This is a gorgeous little look at Drew and Kate about a year after the events of Tangled. Once again from Drew’s POV, it’s sexy and sweet and utterly, utterly hilarious!

Now in a committed relationship with Kate, Drew finds himself still madly in love and lust, but still navigating the waters of coupledom.

This was a little 40 page story that gives us fast forward to the future. I have to agree with some of the reviews that this partly ruins part of Dee's story that is set to take place in book three, so seeing how Emma Chase will work that book in with this will be interesting.

This was Drew at his best, all smart ass. The guy you love so much you have to stifle the urge to punch him his his adorable face. Since this is one of those shorts that your really can't go into because it will ruin it for
