SUSTAINED (The Legal Briefs #2)
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.
I am absolutely sold on Emma Chase’s guys! I think I have a new favorite…Jake Becker. I might have had a smile on my face for most of the book, maybe even a wicked grin a time or two. I didn’t even mind that I became so engrossed this womanizer’s POV. When he meets Chelsea, he doesn’t realize just how much will change. I loved the six McQuaid nieces and nephews, every one of them. The attraction between Jake and Chelsea probably would have been enough for me to enjoy Sustained. But the relationships that develop between Jake and the McQuaid six vaulted this read to one that I couldn’t put down. And one that had me sad to reach the end.
I cannot wait to read Appealed, the next in Chase’s The Legal Briefs series.
