In the third unforgettable book by New York Times bestselling author 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 vividly unique Dee Dee Warren. Includes a bonus short story, Holy Frigging Matrimony!
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.
Move over Drew Evans, there’s a new “Fish-er” in town! Matthew Fisher is handsome, smart, sexy and knows that when he wants something, in order to get it you must never give up.
With just the right amount of love, humor and crazy, Emma Chase knocks it out of the park… Again!
It is no secret to any of you that I absolutely love Emma Chase’s writing and am a huge fan of everything Drew. But I have to say, Matthew took my breath away.
You know what’s better than a bad boy who changed for the girl he fell for? A guy who was playing the field all the while waiting for the right girl to come along so he could give her the world.
That’s Matthew Fisher.
Who knew the right girl would be none other than Delores Warren? The wild child who doesn’t believe in love, relationships or Prince Charming. She doesn’t want to be a damsel in distress. She doesn’t want to be saved and she doesn’t expect a call back. Delores only wants to have a good time with Matt, otherwise knows as “clit boy” (priceless) and move onto the next victim.
I loved the twist in this book.
Emma Chase wrote a female lead who isn’t your typical “virginal, I have no experience in love and am waiting for my knight in shining armor to rescue me” heroine. Delores Warren is definitely not that girl. She’s the wild girl who has been hurt and has decided that lust is better than love, all the fun and none of the disappointment. What happens when Matthew Fisher decides that she’s the girl he wants… Well, it is his turn to make her believe in him. It is his turn to Tame her, but this is easier said than done. How do you show someone who’s given up on love that love is not only possible but standing right in front of you.
After Matthew and Delores share a passionate night, he realizes right away how much he actually likes her. He decides he doesn’t want just a weekend. He wants more than that, he wants more than a fling. Soon he figures that Delores is not only someone he has to fight for, but she’s also someone he has to work for. Her disbelief in love and in him fuels his desire to try harder, to show her what they could be.
Delores doesn’t know how to handle Matthew, every man she’s met before him has either used her or broken her heart. She doesn’t understand what “good intentions” looks like. She tries to shield herself from pain and does her best to keep her feelings in check and Matthew at arms length. But when a guy like Matthew Fisher decides to chase, he won’t give up until he catches.
There’s witty banter, annoying moments, lovely actions and a lot of crazy… Would you expect any less where Delores is concerned? I didn’t think so.
Tamed is a great love story between two very different people which makes for great romance. I suggest you all pick up a copy, because falling in love with Matt, Dee and Tamed, is just one click away!
