Tangled (Tangled #1) by Emma Chase

From Goodreads: -

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.

Tangled is a very refreshing read, as it is from a male POV. A narration from a funny, arrogant, cocky male. Yup it's a narration. But instead of boring narration like diary, it's actually written like Drew is talking to you personally. Some of my favourite quotes from Tangled: -

“For God's sake, don't let her watch Cinderella. What kind of example is that? A mindless twit who can't even remember where she left her damn shoe, so she has to wait for some douchebag in tights to bring it to her? Give me a frigging break!” 

“It makes me want to kiss her and strangle her at the same time. I’ve never been into S&M. But I’m beginning to see its benefits.” 

Tangled is fun and light-hearted. I was laughing at how Drew and Katherine fight like a child. And some of the the things that Drew commented about men simply made me grin. And I definitely enjoy reading the part where Drew go all out trying his very best to win Katherin's heart over. At some point, I was actually thinking what did Katherine think about Drew. :)

I enjoy reading this book very much. I consider it's well written as a debut. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

Real (Real, Raw & Ripped #1) by Katy Evans

From Goodreads: -

A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…

He even makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?

When I first started reading this book, honestly I don't know what should I expect from it. As the author seems like can't stop to emphasize how hot how sexy Remy is, and how Brooke get turned on even by just looking at him. And yet, Remy refused to bed her, again and again despite the sexual tension between two of them. But as the story continue to unfold itself, there are more about Remy, the not so pretty side of him behind his fame, behind his sexy muscular body. I kind of like the way Brooke handle things. She is mature. She cares. And she is strong. The ending is unexpected, but best ending ever.

In overall, it's quite a good read. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Beautiful Stranger (Beautiful Bastard #2) by Christina Lauren

From Goodreads: -

A charming British Playboy. A girl determined to finally live. And a secret liaison revealed in all too vivid color. Book two in the NYT Bestselling series. 

Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner--and speed--with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.

The whole city knows Max Stella loves women, not that he's ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it's not until Sara--and the wild photos she lets him take of her--that he starts wondering if there's someone for him outside of the bedroom.

Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.

Having dissapointed at Beautiful Bastard, I would say this second book in the series exceed my expectation. In fact, I quite enjoy reading it. Similar to Beautiful Bastard, there are quite a number of sex scenes in this Beautiful Strangers. But they are not like the boring bedroom sex as in BB, in fact like Sara, I was curious and looking forward to what would be the next destination that Max had chosen for her on Friday. I actually like the way they interacted with each other. And they had developed feeling with each other without realizing about it until later. Max had this charm that was irresistable. And he's definitely a man who knew what he wants.

In overall I enjoy reading this book very much. I rate it 3 out of 5 stars.
