Review: Tangled by Emma Chase

tangled emma chaseReviewed by Cara Lynn

I was not crazy about this book. Told from the point of view of Drew (Andrew) and filled with more rough language than I like to read, I didn’t really like his stream of thought. The sex scenes were hot, but almost seemed gratuitous. They were not a turn-on for me, sorry to say. I think I go against the grain on this one.

What I did find fun was Drew’s comeuppance when he falls in love with Katherine Brooks, the new associate at his father’s investment banking firm. The sparks fly when Drew’s father makes them partners for business deals. It reminds me of some of the old-time movies, but with coarse language.

I like how he defends her, more than once.

Katherine is long-time engaged to her rather blah boyfriend. We are glad to see him go. He only acts as the spur that goads Drew’s commitment.

The book opens with Drew thinking he has the flu, when he believes Katherine has gone back with her fiance. Then the book backtracks to the before-story.

Drew, while wealthy, is not a particularly good catch, in my opinion, because he has had a series of one-night stands, uses women, isn’t interested in commitment, gets tested every month for disease. Who wants to live like that? and can someone like that really change? This book makes you think it is possible. But not for me.

On the plus side: he loves his family; he loves his niece; they love him; they root for each other. With love like this behind him and around him, perhaps it is possible that when he finds a love like that, he also will have found his family.

Rating: ★★★☆☆
