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.

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything - or anyone - derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.

Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life?

Can Drew Evans win at love?

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.

My thoughts…

Going into this book I knew that Drew Evans was arrogant and a womanizer. What I didn’t know upon reading this was the fact that he’s also a first class prick. To be honest I didn’t really care for the guy to begin with. He was very demeaning towards women. He basically treated them as if they held absolutely no value other than to service him and his sexual needs. Having said those things about Drew doesn’t mean that I eventually didn’t come to like the guy.

Katherine. I loved Katherine from the beginning. She doesn’t put up with Drew’s crap and stands her ground where he’s concerned. When I say he’s finally met his match that’s putting it lightly and I really enjoyed this aspect. I really liked her. Her character is very strong and I couldn’t help but admire her.

Tangled is written in Drew’s POV and while this is something new to me in my reading endeavors it was interesting to read. It was enlightening to see how the male mind works to say the least.

For the most part Tangled was a pretty good read. It’s rich with emotions and parts of it are funny and I found myself LOL’ing several times, but the religious references within the dialogue left a bad taste in my mouth. I don’t think it’s necessary to say Goddamn or Jesus Christ over and over and over again. It really doesn’t add anything to the story in any way and I felt is was unnecessary, but that’s just my personal opinion.

The sexual scenes within Tangled are really hot and well written. The chemistry between these two was off the charts. Slowly but surely Drew changes throughout the book and I found myself starting to root for him and Katherine. I wanted them to come together and when they did it made for some hot and steamy reading.

Overall I enjoyed Tangled. The plot made for an interesting read and I’m glad that things worked out for Drew and Katherine in the end. I think Katherine was good for Drew. She made him change his way of thinking and eventually he came to see that women were more than a piece of ass and should be loved, cherished and most of all respected.
