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.”
"Delores is a gorgeous name, for a gorgeous girl. Plus, it rhymes with clitoris...and I really know my way around them. Big fan." 

Tamed is the third book in the Tangled series, and it’s all about Matthew Fisher (Drew’s best friend) and Delores “Dee” Warren, (Kate’s best friend). 

Matthew might be a bachelor but he’s definitely wanting to settle down and have a family. As soon as he meets Dee, he starts to think maybe she’s the one to do that with. 
Dee doesn’t have that same game plan in mind. She’s independent, funny, and so over the top. All she’s looking for is some casual sex.
Douchebag after douchebag, Dee has been dealt horrible relationship cards, and she’s not interested in getting another. 
Dee swears to Matthew that she’s bad news, but he’s willing to risk it. He knows in his heart that this crazy girl before him is worth it all.
I have never seen a more patient man in my life. Dee is relentless in keeping Matthew away from her, but he’s just as persistent in finding a place in her world.

“Delores likes to be chased—I get it. But, at some point, she needs to stop running and let me catch her.”

Overall, this was a cute story, but nothing really memorable happened for me. Good writing, but I wasn’t wowed. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the story more if you’ve read the first two books though.

If you haven’t read Tangled or Twisted (like me!) it’s A okay! This is a stand-alone so you’ll still be able to understand the story. Don’t worry, you won’t feel lost at all.
