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.

I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

Appealed was a great ending to the Legal Briefs series and I’m sad to see it end. Please, Emma, may we have some more?!?!?
Jake and Kennedy were hilarious to read about. I love a second chance romance and this hit the spot. It was full of Emma’s trademark sexy humor, witty banter, and a cocky male hero that you just want to throttle at times lol. I really enjoyed getting the details of Jake and Kennedy’s past, what caused them to not see each other for over a decade, and seeing Jake make up for his being young and dumb 15 years prior. This was a total feel-good, laugh out loud read that I polished off in a sitting (what else does one do when you’re wide awake at 4 a.m. lol). Since her very first book (Tangled) Emma has been one of my must-read authors and after Appealed, and this series, she’ll continue to be one.

By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother who resides in a small 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.
