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.

Matthew Fisher has never been one for relationships. He’s what you would call a decent womanizer: he is polite, courteous and caring, has the dating etiquette and rules of one-night-stand down to a T, and he never gives ladies any false hope.

But the moment he meets Delores “Dee” Warren, the tables are turned. For some reason, he can’t stay away from the sassy strawberry blonde and her direct attitude, but the problem is that she is not interested in a relationship – except that he now is! Will Matthew let her push her away or will he fight to make it work between the two of them?

First of all, let me start by saying that if you haven’t read Tangled yet, then go do it! Because it’s the prequel (of some sorts) to Tamed and even though you could technically read Tamed as a standalone, it is sooo much better to have read Tangled beforehand.

And if you’ve read it, then you won’t be disappointed to find out that Tamed is exactly the same in style, and that’s for one very specific reason, which is the fact that it is written entirely in male-POV. And the way Emma Chase writes male-POV (in a humouristic, sarcastic bordering on self-deprecating way and with lots of clichés and unspoken truths) is absolutely splendid. At first, I felt like Matthew was given a mind and voice very similar to Drew Evans from Tangled. But soon that impression changed because – sorry – Matthew is a million times sweeter than Drew.

And it goes without saying that I absolutely loooved him. He is the ideal boyfriend (despite the fact that he is a reformed womanizer): he is witty, funny, loves cooking, photography, has a darkroom in his apartment and hangs on to his girl even when she pushes him away. And Dee also really got to me: she’s the intelligent rocket-scientist who’d not afraid to make a statement and the living proof that smart can also be beautiful. And daring. And sassy.

The story was the perfect blend of humour, of love and sexy times (which is no surprise, coming from Emma Chase). I was just a bit disappointed that it was over so soon, and that the end was just slightly rushed. I truly hope Emma Chase will write a sequel to Matthew and Dee’s story soon! In the meantime, you will find out a few bit and pieces about them in Drew and Kate’s sequel Tied.
