“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.”

I picked up this book because of a challenge. Hadn’t it been for that challenge, I truly doubt I would have ever come across this book. And I’m pleased that I found this book. It made for a very nice read during my commute home. Drew, the male narrator (which is rare), has a very unique way of narrating his story. He tries to dialogue with us. At first, it was refreshing, but then it became a bit annoying tat parts.
As far as eroticas go, this one had the benefit of not having the main couple jumping into bed minutes after meeting each other. It was really fun to read Drew and Kate fighting their impulses (Kate did have a good reason, mind). And when they finally gave in, it made for very hot scenes. And this is why it might not be a good reason to read this book in a public place.
Even though the main characters were nicely done, my favorite character was Mackenzie, Drew’s four year-old niece. She stars in a scene featuring a calculator that was really funny and had me giggling in the bus.
I have already put the sequel in my TBR list and am excited to read it, as it will still focus on Kate and Drew.
