What does Drew Evans have to say next? Find out in this forty page short story, filled with his sexy charm, unique advice and hilarious one-liners.

Marriage: the final frontier. Steven went first. He was kind of our test subject. Like those monkeys that NASA sent off into space in the fifties, all the while knowing they’d never make it back.

And now another poor rocket is ready to launch.

But this isn’t just any posh New York wedding. You’ve seen my friends, you’ve met our families, you know you’re in for a treat. Everyone wants their wedding to be memorable. This one’s going to be un-frigging-forgettable.

OMG!! I. Love. Matthew Fisher!! I never expected it, but I love him JUST as much as I love Drew! While Drew had that ‘womanizer’ thing going on (until Kate, of course), Matthew is the kind of guy that you can’t help but LOVE. He’s sweet, charming, sexy, and just a plain ol’ good guy. He’s friendly with the ladies, has a fabulous time with them, but he’s not as bad as Drew was. So Matthew is pretty much perfect hero material–and when you partner him up with Delores Warren? You get one fun, wild ride.

This is a story about a player, who meets a slightly crazy girl. They fall in love and the player changes his ways forever. It’s a story you’ve probably heard before, maybe even from my buddy, Drew Evans. But the thing is, while he and Kate were figuring their shit out? There was this whole alternate universe going on with Delores and me that you don’t know about. So stick around, even if you think you already know the ending. Because the greatest part of a road trip isn’t arriving at your destination. It’s all the wild stuff that happens along the way.

This quote is the absolute PERFECT way to describe Matthew and Dee’s story. No matter what you think you might already know of their story, Tamed still ends up being unique, refreshing, and such a fun read. Matthew’s voice is distinctly different from Drew’s, all while keeping up the hilarity that is the Tangled series. I absolutely loved reading from Matthew’s POV–his and Drew’s relationship as well as his and Alexandra, Drew’s sister’s, relationship, had me laughing so much!

We already know who Delores is. Dee is that fierce kind of girl who’ll protect her best friend with her claws out. She’s tough, stubborn, insanely smart, hilarious, and so much fun. Everyone who knows Dee is slightly afraid of her. And that’s just how Dee likes it. She doesn’t need anyone getting close to her. She doesn’t let anyone get under her skin–until she meets Matthew. They were supposed to just have a one-night-stand, but that one-night-stand becomes so much more.

Matthew has never met anyone like Dee–he sees the tough persona she puts on as well as the vulnerable side she hides. Dee’s been burned more than once, and doesn’t trust easily. Matthew grows to care for Dee more and more, and before he knows it, he’s in love with her. I love Matthew’s humor, but the best part I love about Matthew is the soft side he shows to Dee. I loved seeing Matthew in love, seeing him fight to bring down all of Dee’s walls.

I’ll work at convincing her, that I’m one of the chosen few she can give her trust to.
Because Delores is worth waiting and working for.

*Sigh* I swoon madly for Matthew.

Emma Chase once again writes a story I fell so easily in love with. Her stories and characters are just so addicting. And Emma’s male POV is once again top-notch. Once I picked Tamed up, I couldn’t put it down–this book is sweet, heartfelt, hilarious, romantic, and I never wanted it to end. Matthew and Dee definitely don’t have an easy road ahead of them–there’s some hurt and there’s some angst, but they’ll fight for each other because they’re perfect together. Tamed made me smile, laugh, and cheer for Dee and Matthew the whole way through, and I loved it.

5 hearts
