In the third unforgettable book by New York Times bestseller Emma Chase, Matthew Fisher—the best friend of Drew Evans from Tangled and Twisted—wants to settle down, but he’ll have to overcome the mistrust of the colorful and unique Dee Dee Warren.
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 it 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.
Knowing that romance readers expect a happy ending, Chase tries to make the journey the best part of the third and final Tangled new adult romance (after Twisted), but that journey never gets off the ground. Investment banker Matthew Fisher enjoy strings-free hookups. When he meets absurdly hot chemist Dee Warren, it's lust at first sight. Things are going well until she shocks him by ending their sexual relationship. She is unlike any woman he's ever met, and he can't understand what's made her shy away. Minor ups and downs created by predictable reasons, such as Dee's fear of commitment, push the story to its inevitable conclusion. The straightforward writing and interesting characters capture attention, but a weak attempt at conflict fails to sizzle. Readers who missed the previous installments may feel slightly adrift.
