I’ve got Tangled in my pile of books, acquired when I held delusions of hours of free-reading time a week. But, life takes a left and things are far busier than I expected, so my introduction to Emma Chase’s Tangled Series comes with a POV short from Drew in
Holy Frigging Matrimony
Drew is, without a doubt, hilarious. His perspective on his friends, situations, life and himself are clever and funny, phrased to show both his heart and affection. Although short at just under 40 pages or a one hour listen, Chase has packed in plenty of action, an event and some steamy moments to bring a solid ‘day in the life’ story to light. I’m now more than ready to dive into the first book in this series, expecting a fun and engaging read.
Narration for this short is provided by Sebastian York. I’ve said it before: he could recite the telephone directory and keep me engaged and listening for the next name! He is Drew in this story: you can feel the smile, snarky or not, with each funny utterance and moment, and when he focuses in, you can feel the intensity in his attentions. There is an easily accessibility in York’s delivery style that makes Drew a friend and confidante, and one you are happy to spend time with. The narrated version of this story adds an extra lift to the words, and leaves you with a smile.

What does Drew Evans have to say next? Find out in this forty page short story, filled with his sexy charm, unique advice and hilarious one-liners.
Marriage: the final frontier. Steven went first. He was kind of our test subject. Like those monkeys that NASA sent off into space in the fifties, all the while knowing they’d never make it back.
And now another poor rocket is ready to launch.
But this isn’t just any posh New York wedding. You’ve seen my friends, you’ve met our families, you know you're in for a treat. Everyone wants their wedding to be memorable. This one’s going to be un-frigging-forgettable.
Holy Frigging Matrimony takes place about a year after Tangled’s end and is from Drew’s POV.
