Publisher's Summary

In New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase's sizzling and hilarious debut novel, Drew Evans - gorgeous, arrogant, irreverent, and irresistibly charming - meets his match in new colleague Kate Brooks.

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 audiobook. 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.

    "Brilliant!!!!"

    I'm really starting to wonder if I'm just so in love with the Narrator (Sebastian York) or this is going to be another fabulous series that he just happens to read???? Either way......absolutley brilliant writing and of course the narration brings it home!!!!

    BUT WHY........ just put one book out at a time! I truly hate this!

    Story
    "Think Wallbanger meets Beautiful Bastard...."

    Amazing. A must-listen. This was fan freaking fantastic!! So refreshing, very entertaining and so much fun! This was the perfect blend of wit, humor, sarcasm, romance and all things sexy sexy sexy. Drew Evans is used to getting everything he wanted and enjoying life of a single good-looking bachelor. The story is told through his POV. I was actually fond of Drew's inner thoughts and even thought some of it was pretty hilarious too. Drew is a womanizer who is happy with his life. He doesn't want to have a relationship ever. Yep, he is a man-whore. Plus, he can be crude, crass, and vulgar. Regardless of all those delightful traits, you still can't help but fall for him in the end. Drew is an extra confident person so when out one night & he meets a woman he wants and cannot get, he is just not willing to accept it. What is even more unexpected for him is finding her the next day in his office being introduced as his new colleague. Actually, she is his competition. Kate was also awesome character. If you like strong heroines, you will LOVE Kate. She is smart, confident, sassy and absolutely determined not to become another notch on Drew’s bed post. She has plans, dreams, goals and no time for a playboy. She was able to keep up with Drew all the time, matched his determination, even outsmarted him at times. Their banter was just priceless! Tangled was essentially an enemies-to-lovers story about guy falling in love for the first time with a girl who goes toe-to-toe with him on everything. I loved watching them work through their issues. And when Drew finally decides to fight for Kate’s heart, the lengths to which he goes are just awesome! I must say this was one of the most enjoyable books for me this year. And that is saying something because I've finished a LOT! I really hope this author will write more books in future.




    I wasn't expecting the book to have me laughing so much. It was hilarious! I still have a goofy smile on my face.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Nice Male POV"

    I like hearing the story from Drew's POV. Of course SY's narration skills are soooo nice. That sexy male voice just helps the story along. Since the story is from the male POV it is different and I enjoyed the change. I like the humor in this one but I do have to admit SY's voice is drool-worthy as usual. The sexy parts aren't too bad either. In all this is a very good listen.

    Story
    "I would LOVE to get Tangled up with Drew - So HOT!"
    Any additional comments?

    I was hooked from the first line and smiling wide by the end of the first page. If you are a fan of enemies-to-lovers stories, you will LOVE Tangled! I swear half my book is highlighted. I laughed out loud, grinned till my cheeks ached and just generally loved it :)

    The story is about Drew. In real life, Drew is a clean-shaven, well-groomed, expensive suit wearing professional. But, at the start of the story, he’s a miserable un-showered, un-shaven yeap locked in a messy apartment overflowing with old pizza boxes while claiming to have the flu. - Right.......What he really has is a bad case of the Break Up........ See Real Life Drew was once a player. Why settle for one when there were so many willing ones tripping over themselves to be with him.

    But he’s fallen in love. Finally. Problem is, she’s getting married… to someone else. Hence the miserable, moping, un-shaved heap. This is his story....... It starts off going back in time to when they first met. Drew meets Kate at a club one night and, despite the flirting, she walks away. When Kate gets hired by his office, it puts him in a frustrating situation because office romances are on his no-no list.

    We are told the story by Drew. He can be a bit of an asshat but you really just can’t help falling for him – he’s that lovable. He both narrates the events and breaks the 4th wall by talking directly to us as the reader. It’s totally awesome! This is such a Smart and fun listen that i find my mind keeps wondering back to it. It's one of those books you just can't forget... I can't wait for the next in this Sexy series. :)

    "If only there were more stars to give!"

    This has to be one of the best Romantic Comedies I have ever listened to. It is told completely from Drew's point of view... It was like you were just hanging out with him on the couch as he tells you his story. I laughed so hard ... one of those not so cute laughs with snorts and tears kind of funny. And Sebastian York was FABULOUS... totally believable. I just loved it! I just wish I had 5 more stars to add and give this book a perfect 10!

    Written from the male point of view. Witty and clever dialogue, original, realistic, funny, endearing, sweet, very crude and everything else to make it AWESOME!!!! Best book on audible right now, in my humble opinion.
    Sebastian York does an AWESOME job narrating as always. Totally makes it all work. Brilliant!!!

    "I LOVED GETTING TANGLED UP IN THIS RIVETING STORY"

    If you're looking for something different from the 'usual' style of romance listen - then look no further.

    This romantic/comedy is told as if the Hero is talking directly to you and totally from his point of view on sex, love, life and the unfortunate condition he now finds himself in (I'll say no more on that). Drew is a handsome, arrogant, rich, selfish, spoilt, never the same girl twice playboy who's happy with his life and his many many conquests….. that is until he locks eyes with Katherine she's beautiful, independent, confident, sassy but engaged. Then all the 'War of the Roses' type trouble starts when Katherine is hired as the new Associate in Drew's Father's Company and suddenly things don't go his way anymore.

    This refreshing, well-written book had originality, loveable characters, good secondary characters, with hot sex, sarcastic witty banter, it was funny, had a lighthearted feel, great character development, romantic and was just a joy to listen to.

    Worth a credit? Although he was a total man whore in the beginning, you can't help but love him as you get caught up in all his antics and you hope, after all he goes through, he finally gets his HEA ending and that made this a really enjoyable addictive listen and very creditworthy.

    Story
    "Light-hearted, funny, sexy and sweet,"

    Drew is all that I love in a jerk hero: cocky, full of himself, brash, egotistical, too handsome for his own good, but, worst of all, he's a man-ho. And I so don't really go for that guy, not at all, even if it is fiction. I prefer jerk over womanizer any day, but this author did something magical with Drew. She really did. She made me love him, care about him, and want to see him redeem himself. And Drew does do that, in a big, sweet way. Not only do we see all the questionable sides of Drew's personality, we also see that he is charming and endearing and ultimately lovable. I think when a man like this does fall in love, he falls very hard, and that makes reading that hero's story much more enjoyable and much more romantic to me.

    I loved the chemistry between Drew and his Kate. They argued, they bickered, they flirted, and it was great to read. I loved the verbal foreplay, and I was just waiting for that charming womanizer to get knocked out by love. Not only is this a sweet and sexy read, with some very sigh-worthy romantic moments, and some great groveling as well, this story is also incredibly funny, the kind of laugh-out-loud funny that makes people ask you what you're reading over there. This story is told in first-person completely from Drew's POV. I love having the male point of view in a romance, and here that is all we get, all Drew, all the time, go big or go home. He holds nothing back, no ground too sacred, no truth untold, no secret not confessed. He tells the reader everything, and it was refreshing, unique and hilarious.

    I think the author did an outstanding job voicing this male character. Drew felt real, he sounded real, and he was this story, front and center. I loved him. As I read his male POV, all his tidy insights, all his guy thoughts, I laughed, I cringed, I gasped, I even agreed at times, and then I laughed some more. I lost it over the black-olive incident at Thanksgiving dinner, and the "What would William Wallace do?" speech!, and Billy roaring up in his Totally 80's T-bird; just one funny thing after another, either worthy of a chuckle or a straight-out, snorty laugh. Some of what Drew says is crude, maybe even offensive, but I mean, really, he was funny. Yes, not PC all the time, but I have to say the guy was spot on most of the time for me.

    The writing is smooth but sharp, effortless and easy to read, just very clever, fresh and fun from page one. I was caught up in the story, the character, the humor, and the romance. This author perfectly balanced the rom with the com; nothing felt short-changed to me. If this is a debut book, well, I don't know what to say, except maybe, when's the next one? And will the fantastic Dee-Dee get her own story? I sure hope so. TANGLED is going right on my keeper shelf, under 'books that make me happy.' This book made me feel good, made me laugh and smile, and it made my heart feel lighter and my mood brighter. Big smile and big love for this hero and his story. This was an awesome read. Loved every minute of it!

    "Detangle yourself by avoiding this!!"
    Would you try another book written by Emma Chase or narrated by Sebastian York?

    I would think twice about reading or listening to another book by Emma Chase, but I would listen to something else narrated by Sebastian York.


    Has Tangled put you off other books in this genre?

    It is almost there. I was really put off by the sex scenes in this book as I was not looking for an erotica novel.


    What aspect of Sebastian York’s performance might you have changed?

    He was brilliant for this narration. His voice tone was perfect with the character.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration. It is a very bad story. I was intrigued by a man's point of view, but all I could get was the sense of a woman telling how a man feels. The story was dull, there was no conflict and the characters were dull. I could not sympathise with any of them. Also, the writing was full of clichés and overused jargons.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one to avoid. I will not listen to the sequels.

    "I was bored"

    I had high hopes for this book. It was a disappointment. I was really bored but I pushed myself to listen to it until the end hoping the plot would have changed. It was so flat for me it took me one whole week to finish listening to it.

    I didn't get I at all the part where the main character was addressing The reader and frankly it was done quite a few times throughout the whole book. Why would the character in a book stop everything and ask the reader questions and frankly what? you're expecting an answer?? Was trying to get into the storyline and all the time there were these questions..... I didn't get it!!!

    The characters did not have any depth whatsoever. I found The storyline really poor.

    I hated the last part at the end of the book regarding the advise towards the reader?? This was supposed to be a story, a novel, not a self-help book.
