Sustained

Sustained (Legal Briefs #2) by Emma Chase

 

synopsis_thumb2

A knight in tarnished armor is still a knight.

When you’re a defense attorney in Washington, DC, you see firsthand how hard life can be, and that sometimes the only way to survive is to be harder. I, Jake Becker, have a reputation for being cold, callous, and intimidating—and that suits me just fine. In fact, it’s necessary when I’m breaking down a witness on the stand.

Complications don’t work for me—I’m a “need-to-know” type of man. If you’re my client, tell me the basic facts. If you’re my date, stick to what will turn you on. I’m not a therapist or Prince Charming—and I don’t pretend to be.

Then Chelsea McQuaid and her six orphaned nieces and nephews came along and complicated the ever-loving hell out of my life. Now I'm going to Mommy & Me classes, One Direction concerts, the emergency room, and arguing cases in the principal's office.

Chelsea’s too sweet, too innocent, and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be tough, but she’s not. She needs someone to help her, defend her…and the kids.
And that — that, I know how to do.

5 out of 5 stars

Loved this hard core! Emma Chase does it again with this funny and sexy story that will leave you smiling and feeling oh so happy! I couldn't put it down and enjoyed it from start to finish.

I loved this so much and I think it hit on just about every emotion I could have while reading. It's told from Jake's POV and I adored his voice, he was fantastic. So organized and controlled but extremely caring, he would do anything for his friends. I love how he met Chelsea and that instant chemistry they had. She was wonderful! So sweet and selfless. It was so entertaining watching Jake’s world getting rocked by Chelsea and the kids. Those kids, they were the bomb and stole the show. All of them meeting, was hysterical. There were so many funny moments in this thanks to the them and Jake’s internal dialogue. I would literally burst out laughing while reading. It was awesome!

This was a solid story from beginning to end. Excellent development and pace. It was funny and hot but there were emotional moments as well. I got choked up several times and I pretty much fought back tears during the last chapter and epilogue. I love how Emma Chase really showed Jake’s emotions, subtly growing. I loved him, but he creates a bit of turmoil… I wanted to smack him in the face! But those mistakes made for great drama that really helped create this full, heartfelt story.

There is a character in this story that Jake knows, who goes by The Judge. I won't spoil anything but I will just say that it's one of the most precious relationships ever and it says so much about what kind of man Jake is. It was really wonderful. I loved getting to see Stanton, Sophia, and Brent as well. I enjoyed their updates and how they played a part in the story.

This was just so fantastic! I love when the world can fade away and I'm pulled into another time and place, absorbed in it. That's exactly how it felt while reading this. Sustained was such a wonderful story with caring characters who find love and hope amidst chaos. So heartfelt, super sexy, and extremely laugh out loud funny! 5 stars all the way!
