When I picked up this tiny story, I had just found out that Tangled won the Goodreads 2013 Debut Author. I was so happy for Emma Chase, and myself since I picked it in that category. And then I started reading Frigging and fell in love with Drew Evans all over again.
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.
There’s a wedding in the works. This installment is again from Drew’s POV, about the happenings of a wedding day. That man is hilarious, mostly because of the way Chase writes him. Swoony with a twist of inner musing goofiness. In the hour it took me to read Frigging I was oscillating between being all hot and bothered, almost swooning off the bed and giggling. Sometimes simultaneously.
I’m not going to discuss this much – this is a novella after all, but just know this: if you haven’t read Tangled and consequently Frigging, I’m not talking to you anymore.
Also, I think I need Emma Chase to be my bestie. If she’s in person the same as she writes, my hunch is that life will never be boring with her around.
Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.
