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 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.
TAMED goes back in time to the Tangled days. But this time around, it’s not Drew dishing out the advice and opinions—it’s his best friend Matthew, who of course is dealing with Dee Dee.(
As a lover of Emma Chase's stories, this one wasn't a disappointment. Emma has a good grasp on the single man's point of view, reiterating all the things that my husband tells me about men. Matthew Fisher's point of view was refreshing, quick witted and honest.
Matthew Fisher, a banker, a player, and a self proclaimed boob-man meets Dee Dee Warren, a beautiful intelligent chemist that dresses like a street walker and has an eccentric attitude to match. Dee being burned too many times, doesn't expect too much from a man, so she protects herself by putting up her walls and not allowing Matthew to break them. Unlike most stories about the player turned perfect mate, Matthew is pretty honest about the way he feels about love from the beginning. Matthew unlike his buddy Drew (from the previous two stories) is just having fun with all of the Miss wrongs until he finds Miss Right. He meets Dee and just has to spend time with her. After meeting her for drinks he realizes there is something special about her brand of crazy. He loves that she speaks her mind and that she has her own rules. It's one hot night of explosive sex and passion. When she dismisses him after the ultimate sexual experience , he's taken back, but persists inching his way into her heart even though she pushes him away.
If you've read the last two books of the series, this story will also help fill in some holes and answer some questions. It was nice hearing an outsiders point of view.
The prologue of Matthew telling his synopsis of the story reminds us that it is not about the result but about the journey itself! Matthew and Dee's journey is definitely one to read about. The epilogue was my favorite part and it's one that only would only fit the two characters!
I loved the way the Narrator portrayed equal amounts of cocky and sweet. His delivery was right on and made me laugh out loud at Emma Chase's clever writing. The familiarity in his tone of voice almost made Matthew seem like your close friend.
Overall the story was fun, entertaining, and the chemistry between the couple was explosive and I'll pulled for them all along.
