Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled series, returns with a brand new funny, romantic, sexy story!
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 and 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.
A lot of people fell in love with Emma Chase’s male point-of-view novel, Tangled. That success led to a number of sequel titles and now the spin-off series, The Legal Briefs. As much as I enjoyed Overruled, the first book in the series, I was really chomping at the bit for Sustained. Sustained brings back the all-male point-of-view that readers fell in love with in Tangled. Specifically, you have the great formula of an asshole hero, Jake Becker, defense attorney, pitted against loving aunt, Chelsea McQuaid, legal guardian to six children.
