Goodreads Summary:

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

What Made Me Swoon:


"I've kissed hundreds of girls.  No--make that thousands.  I only really remember a handful of them.  But this kiss?  This is one I won't forget anytime soon.  She tastes...Jesus, I've never done drugs, but I imagine this is what that first snort of cocaine feels like, that first shot of heroin.  Goddamn addictive.  Our lips clash and move over each other, angry and wet.  I can't stop touching her.  My hands are everywhere: her face, her hair, down her back, grasping at her hips.  Pulling her closer, desperate to feel more of her--wanting her to feel exactly what she's doing to me.  Needing air, I rip my mouth from hers and attack her neck.  I feast on her, like a starving man.  And that's exactly what I am--ravenous for her.  I inhale as I lick, suck, and nibble my way from her jaw to her ear."  (Paperback, Pg. 51)
