Review feat Giveaway: Tamed by Emma Chase

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:

"Love isn't putting up with someone in spite of their faults--it's adoring them because of them."
Emma Chase just keeps doing it again and again. If you think being in Drew's head is a hoot, but Matthew can give him a run for his money. What I like about the Tangled series is that they are lighthearted and fun to read. Oh, and they're funny as hell! 
 Tamed is no different. In fact, it was great being able to go back in time and see a different POV of when Drew and Kate were all hot and bothered for each other. When Delores and Matthew meet for the first time? Priceless.

"Delores is a gorgeous name, for a gorgeous girl. Plus, it rhymes with clitoris...and I really know my way around them. Big fan." 

These two are wild. Wild and fun. I want to be friends with Matthew and Dee just because they're totally different from Kate and Drew. Dee is the type of girl who doesn't do relationships. She's a one night stand type of gal and she's okay with that. Matthew is just looking to have some fun also but there's something about Dee that has him so intrigued.

"Her business card isn't Charlie's Golden Ticket--it's the lottery kind--and I just hit the jackpot."

 See, Matthew wants more with Dee than just the next lay. She's beautiful, sexy, and confident; so unlike any girl he's ever met. He has to find a way to convince her to be with him. Any way to make her see that not all guys are the assholes they are. But will he be able to?

Make sure you pick up your copy to find out! Fall in love with Matthew and Dee, they're such a riot, I seriously love them! I recommend this book to anyone looking for a spunky read about two souls just wanting to be loved. Oh, and this is Emma Chase, so expect to laugh out loud, a lot!


She puts on the helmet, but doesn’t climb on the Ducati right away. She stands on the sidewalk, hands on her hips, looking thoughtfully at it. “What would you say if I said I wanted to drive your motorcycle to the party?”

“I’d say you’re shit out of luck. I don’t ride bitch.”

She knocks me upside the head—but my helmet softens the blow. “Then let me take it for a ride myself. Just around the block.”

“I . . .don’t think so.”
She pouts.
I sigh. “Have you ever driven a motorcycle before?”
“No, but I’ve always wanted to.”
“Well, I’ve always wanted to fly, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna strap on a squirrel suit and skydive from the god damn Empire State Building.”
She steps closer, and rubs her placating hands up my chest. “Come on, please? I’ll be really careful and grateful. Really grateful. Like . . .defiantly, let you handcuff me to the bed, kind of grateful.”
Forget the national broadcast system—this is the test. Am I going to stick to my man-guns, keep my pride, and protect my cherished vehicle from almost certain carnage? Or, am I going to be ruled by my dick and swayed by the promise of kinky, have-Dee-at-my-mercy-all-night-long, sex?
No contest.
“Riding bitch, it is.”


By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother who resides in a small, rural town in New Jersey. By night she toils away the hours bringing her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.
Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.
Some of Emma's favorite quotes from Tangled -
"You are making me crazy!"
"Crazy like you want to rip my shirt off again?"
"No - crazy like the itch of a yeast infection that won't go away!"
"And I will be damned if Kate Brooks is going to walk her ass in here and take that away from me. No matter how fine of an ass it may be."
"Words are cheap. Actions win wars. Actions heal wounds."
"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."
