Sustained (Legal Briefs #2) by Emma Chase - Review

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 & 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.


I adored this book completely. It was amazing - I devoured it in five hours. Literally. I started it at 8 o'clock at night and was finished by 12:30am. The time just flew by it was that amazing.

Jake just stole my heart. The way he just stepped in to help the kids, as if they were his own, we're just adorable. I'm not going to lie, I swooned. I think Jake is my Book Boyfriend of the Year for this year. He was perfect. I adored him whole heartedly. I especially liked how the book was from his point of view throughout - I loved how he was with the little ones. 

I loved all the kids. They were amazing - they all had their own personalities, which were charming, delightful and unique. They just made me laugh - especially when Jake first 'bumped' into Rory. The little troublemaker was hilarious.

I loved Chelsea - I loved how down-to-earth she was. How she took on all her brother's kids. She was just so awesome and cool - if I were to meet her in real life, I'd want her to be my best friend.

Overall this book is kick-ass. I have such a book hangover from reading it, so I am going to scour Goodreads for more romance's with substitute father's.
