**5 LAUGH OUT LOUD STARS**
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?
"Do you see that Unshowered, unshaven heap on the couch? The guy in the dirty gray T-shirt and ripped sweatpants? That's me, Drew Evans"
This is how we meet Drew - Our Rich, Successful, Sexy, Man-Slut of a lead male. At his lowest point - think rock bottom, dig deeper and wallow in self pity lowest of low.
AND HE WAS STILL HILARIOUS!!
I needed something light to read because the drama of all the heavy-issue books I've been reading (and loving, can I just add) are beginning to take their toll on me!
I laughed from the off until the end. Like gut clutching, shake from head to toe laughing! I earned quite a few funny looks from my colleagues in the lunch room (because Tangled was so addictive I HAD to read it at lunch!).
This book was a cross between a Chick-Lit, Erotica, New Adult and Humor. The Erotica was few and far between but VERY HOT, the chick lit element was evident, it covered the age range of a typical New Adult novel but the overriding element was Hilarity.
I don't want to go into the story too much - it is ever so slightly predictable (very very slightly) so I'll just mention some things I loved.
- Kate - She was young, ambitious, clever, funny and sexy.
- Drew - Where do I start?? He is a man-slut, no quibbles about it. But somehow I STILL managed to fall in love with him and his trying-to-change-man-slut ways!
- Mackenzie - She is so honest, innocent and adoreable.
