But we all know that’s not really true.

I am Navessa's curiosity. When Navessa sees people spamming a book with five star reviews I make her investigate because I’m a nosy bastard.

I am Navessa's hesitation. When Navessa sees that the reviews are nothing but pictures of people creaming themselves followed by lists of sexy/funny quotes I make her pause to consider how these things have gone in the past.

I am Navessa's Id. When Navessa's worry is about to get the best of her I override that motha fucka and click the ‘Buy Now’ button.

Wrong! It's Drew Evans.

Drew is crude, crass, vulgar. He's immature and spoilt. He wants only one thing from a woman. He's a chauvinist pig. He's a man whore. He is disgusting.

He is hilarious!

Have you ever seen those romantic comedy movies where there's an undeniable attraction between the leads but they're also competitors in the office? This is the rom-com novel equivalent.


For once this novel lives up to all the hype, squeeing and fangirling!

Why it took me so long to read this book is beyond me. If there's a guilty-pleasure New Adult book that is worth your attention, it's Tangled by Emma Chase. It's funny as hell and so addictive. Emma's writing was also so delicious you just can't get enough of it!

! Tangled, book 1. Debut by Emma Chase. A hilariously witty tale following a non-committal playboy man-whore in his descent into the oblivion after falling for a girl he can’t have.

“My stomach flips with regret and disappointment. What I wouldn’t give for a time machine.”

Books/BONUS chapters in the Tangled series should be read in (this) order:
Book 1: Tangled
Book 1.1: Working Late/The Kiss
– Best read after chapter 6 of book 1. PLUS Interview with Drew.
Book 1.2: The Bitch Strikes Back
Rosalinda *KRASNORADA*

So... what can I say about this book? You guys already posted great reviews! So I'll keep it sweet and short.

I am going to embarrass myself confessing this: I have writing that stupid thing down like a thousand times as in Rosalinda + [insert a random name here] forever.

Ok, embarrassment over, I must say I loved this book! It was JUST WHAT I NEEDED after Me Before You.

That is, until he meets Kate and his whole world is turned upside down. Come to find out not only is Kate engaged but she just started working for his company which is Drew's number one no-no.

Oh, I see why romance novels are so rarely written from the point of view of the male love interest: because men are revolting, objectifying, self-centered, manipulative, potty-mouthed assholes.

Chase isn't a bad writer -- she's lively, anyway, and her narrator's voice is fairly consistent, except when she tries to insert the occasional sensitive or politically correct sentiment -- but I sincerely hope men aren't all as awful as she imagines them.
