Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. 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.

Hilarious, romantic, all-out FUN!!

I was hooked from the first line and smiling wide by the end of the first page. If you are a fan of enemies-to-lovers stories, you will LOVE Tangled!

I swear half my book is highlighted. I laughed out loud, grinned till my cheeks ached and just generally loved it!

The story is about Drew. In real life, Drew is a clean-shaven, well-groomed, expensive suit wearing professional. But, at the start of the st

Okay, I know that everyone loves this book. But, honestly, I despised it.

This book sort of reminded me of a Kristen Ashley book. There was this stereotype of what a "guy" is, and how a "guy" thinks.


I've known a guy or two in my day. This book reads like what a GIRL thinks a guy is like.

Tangled had so many loathsome tropes. We get a magical vagina turning a pigheaded guy into a devoted man. We get the adorable niece (which can be replaced by doting younger sister in some books

This book had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t get enough! Being inside Drew Evan’s head was amazing! One of the funniest and most enjoyable stories I have read in a really long time!

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!

I don't remember when was the last time I enjoyed any book so much. I laughed, I was entertained, I swooned. Tangled, book with witty and sarcastic hero as narrator, is a MUST READ! This insight into man's head and thinking is fascinating and a lot of fun.

I must say this was one of the most enjoyable books I have read this year. And that is saying something because I read a LOT! Marked this TBR before it’s release date when I saw someone review 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

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!

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.

Five stars is NOT enough to give this book. Ten stars wouldn't be enough. I loved, loved, loved Tangled. It was exactly what I needed to read right now. I am actually worried I won't be able to write something here to give it justice. Drew Evans is handsome, and knows it. He has women falling at his feet. And he doesn't believe in relationships. He never spends more than one night with a woman but always makes that night the best she has ever had. Then, he meets Katherine Brooks, Kate, and every ...more
