Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. 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. 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.

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. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.

Cover your eyes, kiddies! This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, violence, and/or subject matter. You know, all the fun stuff.

I friggin’ love Tangled! You know what I love about it? Everything! This is yet another book that I got so much more than I was expecting. This book was hilarious! I can confidently say that it will make a couple of my top ten lists this year: favorite couple, favorite male character, favorite read in general … yeah, this baby rocked!

Drew is a riot. He’s a hot shot investment banker who loves his job, it’s his number one priority. The story is told by him in narrative style, and I can’t even tell you how much I enjoyed that. It starts out with Drew isolating himself in his apartment because he has the “flu”, or that’s what he tells himself anyway. Truth is, Drew is feeling something he’s never experienced before – heartbreak. Then we are swept back four months so we can see just how Drew got in that predicament. I absolutely loved his take on everything, no matter how crude and blunt he got. In fact, that was one of my favorite things about him, especially since it was so damn funny.

The chemistry between Drew and Kate was off the charts. Oh, but there is no insta-love here. Well, Drew wants to insta-f—k, but things don’t go quite the way he wanted. They wind up becoming office “enemies”, and it is extremely entertaining. The relationship is something that happens over time, taking us on their rollercoaster of love. Was that corny? I can’t help it, that’s what it felt like. In the best way possible!

Secondary characters were an absolute blast. Delores … gosh I love that woman. She is one scary lady who will put a dude’s balls in a vice grip without a second thought, and boy is it funny. Alexandra, Drew’s sister, is another force to be reckoned with. The women in this book certainly are no push-overs; even Drew’s 4-year-old niece, who has him wrapped around her little finger. I love the wisdom he bestows on her. I got a huge kick out of all the guys too.

I am so glad I gave Tangled a chance, because I would’ve missed out on one fantastic read. Seriously, do not pass up this book! Once you do read it (you better!), make sure to read the novella that follows this book.


You know on TV when there’s one of those awkward, shocking moments and all you hear are the crickets in the background?

Well chirp fucking chirp…this is one of those moments.


It makes me want to kiss her and strangle her at the same time. I’ve never been into S&M. But I’m beginning to see its benefits.


Good guys are boring. You need a little bad to keep things fun. And nice guys? Nice guys have something to hide.

Jeffrey Dahmer’s neighbors thought he was a nice guy. Until they found those heads in his freezer


God, she’s beautiful. I mean, look at her. She’s like a volcano going off—fierce and fiery and breathtaking. If she doesn’t find a way to ugly herself down, I’m going to be spending an awful lot of time pissing her off. Which might not be such a bad thing in the end. Angry sex is awesome.

      Yeah, I think there’s a different color version from when it was indie published or something. I’m not sure.

      I honestly can’t say one bad thing about this book. Well, maybe the cover … I;’m not much a fan of. lol. I think it’s more of a deterrent for certain people who would love the story.

  1. I actually own this one! A friend told me to at least buy it or she’d disown me. But, I keep hearing how funny it is, and I’ve read a few quotes and it does sound freaking hilarious. Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  2. This sounds like a winner of a book Christy! I love a story that can make me laugh, and I have to admit, I’m already a little in love with Drew just after reading your review. Thanks for putting this one on my radar, can’t wait to give it a try!

      Screw the mixed reviews, this book is a freaking riot – lol. I’m so curious about how it would sound.

    • Christy

      Yeah, the cover is pretty much the only thing about this book that I wish I could change. I got my guy friend to read it, but he gets the physical copy and reads the in public. He goes “this cover is going to make people think I’m gay.” lol.

  3. Yay! I’m so excited you loved Tangled. You know, everyone loves Drew, but I agree with you, the ladies rock! I can’t wait to see what you think of Holy Frigging Matrimony and Twisted.
    Great review!

      Yes, I burned out on dystopians a couple months ago, and now I’m in a contemporary mood. Tangled is so much fun and hilarious!

  5. I loved this the first time I read this and loved it again when I heard it on audio. You should definitely good the audiobook version a try one day Christy! Drew’s outlook on life and words of wisdom just made me laugh out loud so much people thought I was crazy!

    I didn’t hear too good things about the sequal though which is a disappointment so I’m still deciding if I should read it or not. Great review Christy, it reminded me of how much I love everything about this book too 😀

    • Christy

      I don’t listen to many audiobooks, but I’d love to listen to this in audio. I loved the novella, but I a little afraid to read the 2nd book. I know it’s from Kate’s POV and a lot more drama. I’ll read it, but I’m bracing myself. lol.

    • Christy

      YES! When I saw you were reading Wallbanger, I got excited and wanted you to read this soon. I love it more than Wallbanger. Oh yeah, you NEED to read the 1st book first.

  6. Awesome Review Christy!!! Tangled is a favorite of mine too! I can’t wait for you to read the net book in the series, Twisted, as well. I laughed so much while reading this story, and Drew and Kate were hot together! I loved the secondary characters as well, and Delores is one of my favs! I can’t wait for you to continue this series! I’m really looking forward to Delores’ story! I know it’s going to be hilarious!!!
