**Review** TIED (Tangled #4) by Emma Chase


In the fourth sexy romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Tangled and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-wedding festivities.

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.

The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of... my final test.

I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you've heard the whole story.

And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less?



I will admit it, I was afraid to read Tied.  After all the angst and drama in Twisted, I just wasn't sure what to expect this time around with Drew (especially with that foreboding synopsis) and I really didn't want to finish this series upset.  However, Tied was exactly what I was wishing for to wrap up this series.  I loved getting back into Drew's POV and see how everything is progressing from inside his dirty, tangent crazed mind.

Emma Chase didn't disappoint with wrapping up my beloved Tangled, readers get to laugh, lust and mist up with Drew, Kate and the whole gang.  Tied was a great extended epilogue that leaves you feeling good and satisfied (don't fear there is minimal drama and no angst here).  The banter, wit and antics that Drew brings to the story is so much fun to read.  I did read Tied in one sitting and it was a fun to see how much these characters have evolved from the beginning.  Two years have past since Twisted, so we get a more settled Drew and Kate, they have found their rhythm with parenting, living together and are more than ready to get married, they just have to survive the bachelor/bachelorette weekend in Vegas first!  

I really like seeing Domesticated Drew, he is still the same Drew we all fell in love with in Tangled, but he has the added layer of contentment and maturity (to a point) that was very entertaining to read.  Living inside Drew's mind is a scary, tangent jumping place but it was a great way for Emma Chase to catch the reader's up on what we missed in the two year gap.  While I loved getting to re-connect with Matthew, Dee Dee, Steven and the rest of the gang (especially Mackenzie) I really wanted more time with just Drew and Kate.  Tied was more about getting them to the actual wedding than the wedding itself and while it was hot, sexy and fun to read, I wanted more of just the two of them preparing to get married.  

Tied was a great conclusion to the Tangled series.  If you have been reading along with Drew and Kate, then this is a must read (you have to see how it all ends, right?).  If you have never read Emma Chase before you are in for a treat but you really need to read (at least) Tangled first so you really get to know Drew and Kate.

If you are looking for a quick, hot, funny read this weekend then pick up Tied and see what's on Drew's mind!
