Series: Tangled #1
Author: Emma Chase
Review: Drew Evans has it all-great job, fabulous body, chiseled face, never-ending confidence and the ability to seduce every woman he meets. But Drew has been shut in his apartment for the last week sick. He tells us he has the flu, but we know that isn't the whole story. Katherine (call me Kate) Brooks just graduated from Wharton and wants to excel at her new job. She's engaged to her long term high school boyfriend but that doesn't stop Drew from pursuing her.
Written from Drew's perspective, this is sexy, smart, witty and best of all-FUNNY! He's an arrogant ass but he's very self aware arrogant ass. He has some great quotes, this is one is good:
"I once heard my mother tell my father that she shouldn't have to explain why she was pissed. That if he didn't already know what he'd done wrong, then he wasn't really sorry for it. What the f*** does that even mean? Newsflash, ladies. We can't read your thoughts. And frankly, I'm not entirely sure I'd want to. The female mind is a scary place to be."
I enjoy how there is actual relationship development between Kate and Drew (instead of the 'he/she's so hot I'm in love with him/her' which a lot of books fall back on). This is a minor complaint, but the niece was slightly annoying (I'm the mother of a 5 year old and the niece, who is 4, was written more like a 2/3 year old).
