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.
I received an advanced copy of this story for an honest review.
What I Loved: In turns witty with biting humor, steamy with sizzling intimacy, and sweet with a hope-filled core - Appealed is Emma Chase's best story to date. Brent and Kennedy's second chance romance is so achingly real while still embodied with Chase's signature humor. I found myself in a cycle of tearing up, giggling, and blushing. Chase also wrote one of the best epilogue's I've read for a series. It made my romance fan-girl cheer.
"Boredom is a disease. Either you cure it doing something you love - or you die trying."
"We shy away from the things that hurt us - that have hurt us in the past. That's what scars are for. They protect the wounds. Cover them with thick, numb tissue so we'll never have to feel that same pain again."
"I still want to live my life free - but I want to live it free with her."
"The ride is the only thing that makes the fall worth it."
Appealed can be read as a stand-alone so readers new to Emma Chase should not be scared away from jumping into a new series. Established fans of The Legal Briefs Series will be thrilled with this new addition. Appealed is a can't miss story and I highly recommend it to everyone.
