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.
We met Matthew Fisher in Tangled and Twisted as one of Drew’s best friends and fellow investment banker and in Tamed, he gets his own story. Tamed is a stand alone and the events actually happen alongside the events in Tangled.
To Matthew, Delores Wareen, or Dee-Dee is the perfect girl for what he wants – an uncomplicated, no strings short-term affair. Matthew does not do relationships anymore after being hurt but he’s always down for a good time and Dee-Dee fits his needs very well. As he spends time with Dee, he likes what he sees and wants to spend more time with her but Dee subscribes to the ‘one and done’ policy and will not pick up or return Matthew’s calls.
Dee loves a good a time and lives life to the fullest but she has mastered the art of leaving before she gets left behind. So after tearing up the sheets all night with Matthew, she’s done with him. Dee has been disappointed too many times in the past and is not willing to open up to Matthew and have him leave her too.
Matthew is successful, good-looking and like his best freind Drew, a fixture on the New York City social scene. Matthew was immediately likeable from the first page and I loved him because in spite of his success, he was very patient with Dee and kept up his pursuit of her when he could have given up. He was determined to prove to her that he was in for the long haul and with limitless patience and willpower, he did just that.
In my opinion, Ms. Chase is at her best when she writes from a male POV and Matthew kept me entertained all the way to the end!
