Title: Sustained (Legal Briefs #2)
Author: Emma Chase
A knight in tarnished armor is still a knight.
When you’re a defense attorney in Washington DC, you see first-hand how hard life can be and that sometimes the only way to survive is to become harder. I have a reputation for being cold, callous, 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 get you off. 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 am knee deep in a damn compost pit.
Chelsea’s too sweet, too innocent and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be hard, but she’s not. She needs someone to help her, defend her…and the kids.
And that – that I know how to do.

I feel like kicking myself for waiting so long to get to this book!
It was amazing. Everything I have come to expect from an Emma Chase novel and more. So much more! Emma is the Queen of the male POV!
Jake Becker knew what he wanted from life. I may not have agreed with his aims and plans but I admired his strength and tenacity.
Chelsea McQuaid had her own life panning out nicely. Then it got uprooted in the most horrific of ways and she suddenly had everything change. At 26 she was now “mom” to 6 young children – her nieces and nephews.
Jake came to her rescue in the most uncommon of ways but it was fate the day he knocked on her door about to lay down the law!
What happens next is a series of events that, despite being hectic, manic and completely out of the ordinary for both Jake and Chelsea, were perfect for them. I wouldn’t have wanted their story to go any other way.
I’ve come to realise that I adore any book that features children in. They make a romance story that much more real and plausible to me. Or it’s the broody, clucking mother hen in me that loves reading about kids I don’t know. But I adored all 6 children!
The ending came too fast for me. Yep. I wasn’t ready for it to end!!!
Five stars and then some for Sustained! Bring on Brent’s story!!
