Spotlight Review – Appealed (Legal Briefs #3) by Emma Chase

Appealed Cover
ALP Synopsis1

When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate – and prized – parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Christian Louboutins.

Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them.

And now he has his sights set on Kennedy.
When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell.

She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore – she’s a DC prosecutor with a long winning streak behind her. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case and she thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own.

But things aren’t exactly working out that way.

Because every fiery exchange has her wondering if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. Each argument and objection only makes him want her more. In the end, Brent and Kennedy may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.

APPEALED is a sexy, humorous romance about first crushes, second chances and the final verdict of the heart.

An entertaining second chance romance filled with intense objections and swoon worthy gestures commingled with deep rooted matters of the heart.

I finished this book over a week ago and I have not stopped thinking about Brent and Kennedy. I loved these characters and this book.  They entertained me with their witty banter but their stories captured my heart and took me on quite an emotion packed journey. I love second chance romances – LOVE THEM – and this book is sitting on the top of my favorite reads of 2016.

There was never a dull moment with Brent and Kennedy and I could not read fast enough to keep up with my heart’s need to know what would happen next. I loved Kennedy and her fierce and feisty personality. She was a force to be reckoned with both in and out of the courtroom. Brent’s determination and persistence with Kennedy was charming and sweet and he completely stole my heart.

I was engaged in the story, invested in the characters and loved catching up with the gang. Chase is a master at her craft with perfectly placed comedic relief woven into her stories to ensure the full spectrum of emotion is delivered. Though I am not a huge fan of Rom-Coms, Chase has ensnared me with her writing style and acquired a position on my must read author list. This is the third installment in the Legal Briefs series and though I am sad to see it end, I am excited for what is to come from Chase.

Overall Rating: 5 STARS

By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother of two who resides in a small, rural town in New Jersey. By night she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.

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.
