Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed?

He’ll tell you he has the flu.

But we all know that’s not really true.

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything - or anyone - derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.

Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life?

Can Drew Evans win at love?

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.

ENGLISH:
He's a jerk, disgusting, childish, yet I adore him. Seem like I'm sick, right? I have low expectation when I read this. What kind of a man who so proud of himself though he's a manwhore? Gosh! But Drew made me laugh and love him despite of his insane character.

Yet I was hooked....

It taken from the first POV, Drew, there are many conversation run through his head that capture what he felt. And his thought, that's the one that made me sometimes smiled, sometimes laughing out loud.

“I once heard my mother tell my father that she shouldn’t have to explain why she was pissed. That if he didn’t already know what he’d done wrong, then he wasn’t really sorry for it. What the fuck does that even mean? Newsflash, ladies: We can’t read your thoughts. And frankly, I’m not entirely sure I’d want to. The female mind is a scary place to be.”

I love Kate's character. She's dedicated to her work, confident, sassy, and don't fall easily to Drew like the other girls.

If we’re going to work together, Drew, I think we’re should get a few things straight. I’m not your sweetheart. My name is Kate — Katherine. Use it. And I’m not a kiss-ass. I don’t have to be. My work speaks for itself.”

Their career competition at the beginning similar to Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James. Got the picture? Now, add a little humour in it, and you'll find that's Tangled.

Overall, this book is so hilarious. Sometimes I wanna throw up because of Drew's over confidence. But, I couldn't put this down. Clearly, the story didn't bore me.

Can't wait for the installment books. Drew has 3 friends, Steven (married to Drew's sister), Matthew (having a relationship with Kate's bestfriend, Delores), and Jack. I also curious about Drew's parents' love story :)

INDONESIAN:
Dia adalah orang yang brengsek, menjijikkan, kekanak-kanakan, tapi aku memujanya. Aku seperti orang gila kan? Awalnya aku tidak mengharapkan apa-apa dari cerita ini sejak mulai membacanya. Pria jenis apa yang bangga pada dirinya sebagai seorang manwhore (aku tak menemukan kata pengganti yang tepat untuk istilah ini). Tapi Drew, sang karakter utama pria, membuatku tertawa dan jatuh cinta dengan kegilaannya.

Dan aku terjerat dalam cerita ini...

Diambil dari sudut pandang utama Drew, banyak percakapan pribadi saat menggambarkan kondisi yang sedang dirasakannya. Dan hal-hal seperti inilah yang membuatku kadang senyum-senyum, kadang tertawa ngakak.

“I once heard my mother tell my father that she shouldn’t have to explain why she was pissed. That if he didn’t already know what he’d done wrong, then he wasn’t really sorry for it. What the fuck does that even mean? Newsflash, ladies: We can’t read your thoughts. And frankly, I’m not entirely sure I’d want to. The female mind is a scary place to be.”

Aku suka banget sama karakter Kate di sini. Dia berdedikasi, percaya diri, sassy, dan tentunya tidak jatuh begitu saja ke dalam pelukan Drew.

If we’re going to work together, Drew, I think we’re should get a few things straight. I’m not your sweetheart. My name is Kate — Katherine. Use it. And I’m not a kiss-ass. I don’t have to be. My work speaks for itself.”

Persaingan karir mereka pada awalnya mungkin seperti Practice Makes Perfect yang ditulis oleh Julie James. Tambahkan sedikit humor di dalamnya, dan itu lah Tangled.

Overall, buku ini kocak banget. Kadang-kadang pengen muntah sih ama sikap kepercayaan diri Drew yang terlalu berlebihan. Tapi aku tak dapat berhenti membacanya. Yang jelas sih buatku cerita ini gak membosankan.

Gak sabar baca seri berikutnya. Drew memiliki 3 sahabat, Steven (yang menikah dengan kakak Drew), Matthew (yang pacaran dengan Delores, sahabat Kate), dan Jack. Aku juga penasaran dengan cerita cinta kedua orang tua Drew :)
