I loved the first half of the book. It was good, saucy fun! The second half or so I found kind of cheesy. I can see why a lot of women might like it, but for myself, I prefer a little less of the gooey romance.
As a whole though, it was an entertaining, sexy book. I would recommend it.
I had a hard time getting into the dialogue because the MC Drew was speaking directly to the reader, rather than having an inner monologue. I guess I'm just not used to reading books written this way. Sure it was funny in some parts, and the single Drew was certainly a d-bag. Which isn't all together a bad thing, but it was still hard to overlook it once he started to have genuine feeling towards his love interest. And Drew certainly took the over the top way to get her back, I kind of thought he was crazy.
All the good story line stuff starting happening at around 50%, and that's a long way to go to get interested in the book.
Buy or not, but it isn't one that I would recommend.
4.5 stars. 5 for Drew and his witty commentary to, us, the reader. 4 star for the rest of the story.
This was fun at times and seeing everything from a male POV was new to me. It was entertaining.
So let's start with Drew. He started off as a bit of a d*ck really but seeing him change as his feelings for Kate developed was really nice and by the end of it--after all the swoon-worthy stuff he did--I have to admit that, like Kate, I fell for him too.
And then to Kate. From the start she seemed like a perfect match for Drew, both work-wise and relationship-wise, and seeing the sparks flying between them was fun.
When they finally hooked up I was grinning like an idiot. And then it was like boarding a roller-coaster with all the ups and downs my feelings and emotions went through as I equally willed them to get together and for Kate to smack Drew or something. I don't think it was an easy ride for any one of us (Drew, Kate or me) for that last 40% or so. I just kept urging Drew to do something!
I loved the pictures the author had added to the story. They added a fun angle to what was being described; the drink for example.
I certainly think I will be continuing the story at some point :)
5.0 out of 5 starsEmma Chase is my new favourite author!!

I love her writing g style and her humour. There are so many laugh out loud moments in this book. I started reading it in the airport departure lounge and almost missed my flight!! The flight from London to Toronto was seven hours and twenty five minutes. For the last three and a half hours I sat in my seat cursing the airline for not having WiFi!!
This is a great story with enjoyable characters, especially strong women. Told from a man's point of view is refreshing especially with the humour. I may have been upset at the airline for their lack of WIFI however I soon forgave them and started reading the book again.
I'm now at my hotel and have downloaded several other Emma Chase books as I definitely don't want to be caught short again!
5.0 out of 5 starsgreat read but surely men dont really think like this do they? quite amusing from a spoilt brats point of view.

These books are brilliant and and the characters are easy to become entangled with, its basically a story of drew and Kate, Kate is lovely and sweet and drew is a selfish arrogant self absorbed spoiled baby, who like to get his own way in all things, and he has set his sights on Kate but goes about thing all wrong and messes up big style, then your laughing at his stupidity to try to put things right so he can be with Kate well read it yourself it really is worth buying.
5.0 out of 5 starsLOVED IT...FUNNYAS! SHOULD BE MADE INTO A FILM!

This book should definitely be made into a film. It had me hooked from page 1...hysterically funny and so so true! I had some proper belly laughs and there aren't many books that can do that. There were many many times throughout, but I don't want to actually quote them in full. I'll let you discover them for yourself... one of the funniest for me though was the Disney reference..."I'm going to hell aren't I?"...probables yeah!...the rats and blue buttons scenario is also priceless. I loved the way the narrative is done in such a way that the main character is talking to you, telling you his story from his point of view. It really worked well and is one of this book's many charms for me. It is in my opinion, a brilliant balance between tear inducing humour, sappy romance, (in a good way), and some seriously steamy sex scenes, while managing to have a believable boy meets girl story in there as well. Brilliantly written...I will definitely be looking out for more from this undeniably talented author...keep em coming! Do yourself a favour and read it ;-)

I know I'm reading this late, but it was worth the wait, what a clever, funny, original book, I really wanted to hate Drew, he was frustrating, arrogant and I didn't really warm to him but i loved the first person narrative, his inner thoughts and the reasonings he had for doing things, they were incredibly funny and very honest which is what I liked. Kate, sweet Kate, to have that power force of Drew after you, wow, she took a chance and well, the second half of the book was brilliant, I found it really sweet and sincere even with Drew and his cheeky one-liners, a man in love for the first time was a thing to behold, pretty damn special, this author has made something unique and memorable, glad I finally got to be part of something wondrous.
Such a fabulously funny, sexy and romantic story 😀 I really love that it was written totally from Drew's point of view... Other stories have tried this and usually been ok, but this was great, because it was like we the reader was completely inside Drew's head, like a "fly on the wall" of how men think - Well done Emma - please write more like this!
This is without a shadow of a doubt my favourite book of the year. Emma Chase is an absolute GENUIS- the book has it all and how on earth she manages to get to convey the essence of Drew is beyond me. I laughed- OMG did I laugh and not just a little chuckle - but full on belly laughs, the sort that only you usually reserve for the very best of circumstances - well let me tell you - Tangled is one of those - it is the Very Best!!! Cant wait to read everything this author writes from now on - absolute favourite!!!!
Really enjoyed this book as it was completely from a Male POV and it is so funny to see how they think. Clever when it is a girl writing the book. Strong Kate takes on single and loving it too much Drew. You will make Drew your new 'book boyfriend'- can't wait to read more in the author's series.
4.0 out of 5 starsRead twice and it's still just as good!

Reread this so that I can read the next in the series. Funny, like that it's from a male pov. Loved the characters. Kate was a strong female mc that I liked. Setting/plot good. Steam good. Would recommend :)

Women falling all over him all the first time he doesn't have to work for anything u til late comes along. Then he finds out she is the new employee at his firm, will he keep his rule of not screwing around in the office or will he get his thrill
The story is fantastic, but it started off very slow. I was waiting for Drew to get to the point. He was going round a bit in circle. I enjoyed it and it was quite funny in some part. I will recommend the book to friends.
