Tamed (Tangled #3) by Emma Chase

Tamed (Tangled #3) by Emma Chase

This is an adult contemporary romance novel (Rate NC-17)

 (Five Fantastic Hearts)

Book Summary

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: girl meets player, they fall in love, player changes his ways.

It’s a good story. But it’s not our story. Ours is a lot more colorful.

When I met Dee I knew right away that she was special. When she met me, she thought I was anything but special—I was exactly like every other guy who’d screwed her over and let her down. It took some time to convince her otherwise, but turns out I can make a convincing argument when sex is at stake.

You might know where this story’s headed. But the best part isn't where we ended up.

It’s how we got there.

TAMED goes back in time to the Tangled days. But this time around, it’s not Drew dishing out the advice and opinions—it’s his best friend Matthew, who of course is dealing with Dee Dee.

My Review

I’ll be honest with you. I’m not a Harlequin Romance (straight romance with no extras in the plot) type of girl. I usually need grit in my story outside of the romance to get me to care. How wrong was I?

Let me tell you. Out of all the books I’ve read so far this year, this is my first five star read. And it’s not because the plot is complicated or the characters are broken and need to be fixed (well…). It’s simply a relationship that’s funny, intriguing and sexy. I find Matthew’s POV believable and genuine.

It’s been a while, so I can’t quite connect it to Drew and Kate’s story. I remembered bits of it as I read. But it was just Matthew and Dee and the pit falls of falling in love that made me turn each page.

Emma Chase writes a story that isn’t quite new as everything in romance has been done before. But she makes you care about the characters, connect with them like old friends, so much that you want to know what’s on the next page. Add to that the humorous moments that make you not lol but Laugh Out Loud, (lol).

This is a story about boy who met a girl and fell in love, written in a way that will make you laugh, bring tears to your eyes and fall in love too.

I highly recommend this one. It’s a light read that will tug at all your emotions and leave you happy in the end. What more can you ask?

Oh, and you don’t have to read Tangled or any of the other books in the series to enjoy.

Audio Review

Deacon Lee does a fabulous job at narration. My only complaint is when he did the few Brent (Dee’s cousin, can’t remember), it didn’t sound much different than Matthew. Thankfully, he’s not in the book much, so there isn’t a constant problem.

My book boyfriend Matthew.(because this is Matthew’s POV, I don’t remember all his attributes. But this is close to how I saw him in my head.)
