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.
Adrienne's Review v2

Tamed is the 3rd book in the Tangled series by Emma Chase.  It’s Mathew and Dee’s story written from Mathew’s POV.

Let me get this out of the way first, I LOVE Emma Chase.  I ADORE her writing.  I think she’s created a character in Drew Evans, that in my book cannot be compared to any other leading man in this genre.  He will hands down ALWAYS be my favorite book boyfriend.  With that said, I really enjoyed Mathew as well.  It just goes to show that Emma knows how to create these epic male characters, giving them voices that are sure to make you smile, laugh, and even swoon.  Yes swoon!

If you’re familiar with the Tangled series you already know the end of Mathew and Dee’s story but that’s not what this book is about.  It’s the story of how these two got from point A to point B.  Tamed is a story that can be read outside of Tangled and Twisted and actually runs parallel to Tangled.  Dee is Kate’s best friend, Mathew is Drew’s, the setup could be more perfect.  Only it’s not without it’s flaws.

Emma is able to give us an insight into the male species like no other woman I’ve ever known.  Quite frankly I don’t know how she does it.  If I hadn’t met her and hugged her myself I would think she was really a guy writing these books.  My husband has read parts of all the books and just shakes his head stating that Emma is spot on in her assessment.  In fact, he looked a little worried, like the cat was out of the bag!!  LOL

I thoroughly appreciated the maturity of Mathew and Dee.  Some may read this book and say that Dee behaved immature at times but I really think she was justified in some of her actions.  We’re all products of out environment.  Dee’s behavior towards men and her inherent need to self protect was totally understandable.  Plus is went perfectly with her fiery personality.  And just as much as I though Mathew was perfect and perfect for Dee, he too was flawed.  I loved seeing the transformation from self proclaimed bachelorhood to his contented self realization that he was in love.

Emma’s writes beautiful love stories about flawed characters and their journey towards love and the self awareness and life lessons that come with it.

Excerpt v2

Dee defends a horrible chick flick suggestion. “I like best friend movies—they’re very empowering. Thelma and Louise, Beaches, Steel Magnolias—that one’s my favorite. I always imagine me and Kate like Ouiser and Clairee when we’re old.”

“What’s a Steel Magnolia? More importantly, what the fuck is a Ouiser?”

She looks simultaneously surprised and appalled. “You’ve never seen Steel Magnolias? Are you even human? It was one of Julia Robert’s first movies.”

I throw up one hand as I object. “No—no frigging way am I watching Julia Roberts! Drew went through a whole year of Julia Roberts as a kid and he still hasn’t recovered. To this day, Pretty Woman quotes come flying out of his mouth uncontrollably. Not happening.”
