REVIEW: Tamed (Tangled #3) by Emma Chase

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 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.

She puts on the helmet, but doesn’t climb on the Ducati right away. She stands on the sidewalk, hands on her hips, looking thoughtfully at it. “What would you say if I said I wanted to drive your motorcycle to the party?”
“I’d say you’re shit out of luck. I don’t ride bitch.”
She knocks me upside the head—but my helmet softens the blow. “Then let me take it for a ride myself. Just around the block.”
“I . . .don’t think so.”
She pouts.
I sigh. “Have you ever driven a motorcycle before?”
“No, but I’ve always wanted to.”
“Well, I’ve always wanted to fly, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna strap on a squirrel suit and skydive from the god damn Empire State Building.”
She steps closer, and rubs her placating hands up my chest. “Come on, please? I’ll be really careful and grateful. Really grateful. Like . . .deviantly, let you handcuff me to the bed, kind of grateful.”
Forget the national broadcast system—this is the test. Am I going to stick to my man-guns, keep my pride, and protect my cherished vehicle from almost certain carnage? Or, am I going to be ruled by my dick and swayed by the promise of kinky, have-Dee-at-my-mercy-all-night-long, sex?
No contest.
“Riding bitch, it is.”

Erin's Review 
I freaking love this series! Matthew and Dee's story takes place among the angst that was Drew and Kate, we just didn't get to see much of the action. Well, there's plenty of it in this book! We got a little bit of a behind the scenes look as well, remember Drew locking himself in his apartment for days? We find out just how The Bitch came to intervene. 
 Both Dee and Matthew are cut from the same cloth. Hit it and quit it is their motto. Dee gives Matthew a run for his money and neither are afraid to call the other one out on their shit. It's what made me love them actually. Matthew proves that he's just as much of a smooth talker as Drew, sometimes more. I can easily see why they are friends. 
 I would like to say Matthew and Dee's story is sweet but Dee would kick my ass. It's hot, steamy and romantic-see, not sweet :) It's the perfect companion to Drew and Kate's stories and I always wanted to know more about the guys that always have Drew's back. Let's not forget his leading lady. She's snarky, feisty and a ball of sexual tension Matthew just can't wait to unwind. 
 This book is perfect to get you out of any slump you may have found yourself in. It's funny, it's sexy and I couldn't put it down. Now the story I want to see is Steven and Alexandra's. I'm curious how she keeps him in line. I'm thinking whips and floggers and some sexy lingerie. 
 I'm a sucker for books that show you how the character's got their HEA, and this one was perfect. I love these characters and I love the series. Can't wait for Tied and I'm sure we haven't seen the last of Matt and Dee.
