RATING: 5 napkins
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 stubborn. 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. (courtesy of emmachase.net)
Can I just say I totally <3 this book?!?! YES, I do!
Top 10 reasons why I love this book:
10. It's different that it's told from the hero's POV.
9. It's totally hilarious, I actually laughed out loud at some of the scenes, which I rarely do lately.
8. The dialogues were really witty.
7. The writing was done well, the whole story flowed smoothly. For a debut romance novel, I say, brava!
6. It has the right amount of steam, and boy did it sizzle! I will say that I was a little concerned in the beginning about how it would all read considering it's supposedly a male's POV, but there's definitely nothing to be concerned about.
5. Although it was your typical insta-attraction, it wasn't love at first sight, so it was nice to see the relationship develop.
4. All the characters are likable and that includes all the supporting characters as well.
3. Mackenzie, the hero's niece, I think deserves a special mention.
2. Kate, the heroine, definitely does womanhood proud. She's smart, intelligent, strong, feisty, and feminine all at once. Can't blame anybody for falling in love with her, seriously, unlike some heroines in some of these romance stories.
1. And lastly, saving the best for last, we get Drew, the hero of the story. Oh, Drew, Drew, Drew. He's arrogant, overbearing, crass at times, irreverent and totally unapologetic, yet he's sweet, sincere, supportive, funny, and will just totally melt your heart. Well, he melted mine. ((grins))
The whole book read like a movie. That doesn't necessarily work for everybody, but as far as I'm concerned, it totally did...
Let's just say there is nothing, and I mean, nothing that I don't like about this book. End of story.
Have you read it? Did you enjoy it as much as I did?
