Description

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.

  • Tangled was a better story than Tamed. This does not even compare.

    I love how the story begins with dating tips. I like how Matthew has his night all planned out. A man prepared. A man who is quite familiar with how the game is played. I love these role reversal stories where a woman learns to play like a man and accept the one nightstand for what it is. Funny when a man finally decides he likes a woman it changes the game. I could do without the female bashing of club girl and ex-girlfriend. I believe if you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all. Criticizing a woman's appearance is rude. Not everyone is blessed with an amazing body or the ability to wear great clothes or be beautiful enough to go with the natural make up look. The story is great without having to knockdown other people. I enjoyed the humor it was witty. The movie references were alright. Some of the analogies were okay. There relationship had no angst it was governed by sex with no further development. No developed feelings of growth. They certainly spend a lot of time going places but again it's not what I'm reaching for in reading material. I felt like their relationship was routine. The sex scenes almost seem like they were written by a man or at the very least written based off a mans perspective. So far everything initiated by Dee are sexual fetishes and desires more relatable to men. What I learned from this story is if a woman wants to become part of a mans world she must behave like a man. If a woman wants a man to occupy his time with her over his male friends then she must have a lascivious sexual appetite. Dee constantly is testing Matthew to see if she can trust him. Dee's trust issues is why the relationship never grows. I read Tangled and loved it but I did not love Tamed. This one did not even meet the mark. I'm sure people will say this review was not helpful when really they just don't agree with my review. Not liking my review does not warrant a not helpful mark.

    Loved the trilogy, easy read and worth every word. You easily get involved in each character and they are books you don't want to put down. Loved them so much I even have the audio versions.

    Tamed by Emma Chase is the third full length novel in her Tangled series. Just as funny as the previous books, Tamed details the story of Matthew and Dee Dee. Matthew being Drew's best friend and Dee Dee being Kate's best friend. Matthew's inner monologue is at once hilarious and touching. It's a side to him I didn't expect and was happy to see. The story runs concurrent with the time frame of Drew and Kate stories from the previous books and details the meeting, chasing, and falling of Matthew and Dee. Dee is a tough girl with a prickly exterior out of necessity to protect herself from being hurt and Matthew is bound and determined to get past her walls and into her heart. He does all he can to prove to her over and over that he is NOT like the other men in her life that treated her bad (and that he wants to annihilate for ever daring to hurt her). Tamed is hilarious and touching and will have you laughing out loud with the antics of these characters.

    I am going to put this out there (don't throw things at me)... I was not looking forward to reading this book and put it off as long as I could (last night) before I had to review it. Why? Because of Twisted. I was NOT a fan of the way Twisted went and what it did to one of my favorite books of 2013, Tangled. Plus, since I had already read (and reviewed) Holy Friggin' Matrimony (which is conveniently added to the end of Tamed) I thought it was odd to go backwards and read about Matthew and Dee so I put it off as long as I could and guess what I found out? I am stupid. I LOVED Tamed!! I devoured the book in one sitting, was laughing out loud and misting up at the same time. The Emma Chase I fell in love with in Tangled is BACK!! Tamed was everything I was too scared to hope for and gave me what I missed in Twisted. Emma Chase's male POV writing is outstanding and I was relieved to see how much I loved her writing as Matthew! Reading this book put a smile on my face and actually got me excited to see how this series will play out with the final book, Tied (coming in October 2014). Matthew was everything I love in a male lead; hot, funny, witty, confident but not too much of douchebag and sexy as hell. I fell in love with Matthew from the very beginning and watching him fall in love with Dee was a fun and very entertaining ride. After reading this series I had put Dee in box marked "witchy" (but add the "b"), but boy did she turn out to be much more than I thought! I actually liked her vulnerability, her sass and her heart. She turns out to be much more than the "w"itchy best friend of Kate. While I did enjoy seeing Drew and Kate from the view points of their best friends, I just really enjoyed getting to know Matthew. (I am still mad at Drew and Kate from Twisted). Emma Chase does a fantastic job getting the reader into the head of Matthew and telling a story that was poignant, funny, sexy and just plain awesome. I loved having the stories I have come to associate with Emma Chase back and I would gladly read anything she writes, short story or full length novel (hell, I'd read just funny quotes on a napkin). I am back to be truly excited to see how this series plays out and anxious to get my hands on Tied! If you are a fan of the Tangled series, then Tamed is a MUST READ! Don't be an idiot and think this book doesn't have to be read to finish the series on Drew and Kate like I did, Tamed brings such a wonderful new perspective (and story) to the series that will leave you smiling for hours and dying to get your hands on the next book when we get to see Drew and Matthew (my new book boyfriend) again! 1-click and ENJOY!
