Sustained Book Summary

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.

    This book is addictive and will leave you wanting more. The characters, the storyline, the well written banter. Absolutely love it.
  • Surprisely more than I expected

    By Living Cinderella
    This book is more than just about steamy sex, it's about compassion, a unique love; a love that is selfless and more than just about the couple. I've read it's standalone prior to reading this and am going to read it again..that's how good this book is!!
  • Laugh out loud funny and steamy!

    By pithepo
    Thus has to be one of my favorite romance books...ever! I can't remember the last time I laughed so much, and out loud, at a romance! That's how well this book is written. Calamity of six kids, matching wits with cool and controlled Jake, made for an amazing story. Chelsea, as the aunt who dropped everything for her nieces and nephews made me cheer for her throughout the book. Chemistry real and steamy, even with circumstances. Just loved the dialogue, loved the cast of lawyer friends and can't wait to read Brent's story. I'll be an Emily Chase fan forever. I agree that this book "is special" and "on point"! After you've read the book you'll understand those quotes. Don't waste another minute without buying this book.
  • Laughed Out Loud

    By Zeb2319
    Jake is hilarious. I don't usually laugh out loud while reading a book but man is the guy funny. He is your perfect knight in shining armor. Good read. Highly recommend. Couldn't put it down.
  • Great Series

  • Love!

    By ellesnaps
    I love the friendship of Jake, Brent, Stanton and Sofia, love the interaction between them! Jake's story is awesome, the insta-family of 6 kids was a perfect setting for him.

    I loved this story! I called in sick just to stay curled in bed to finish this book. Love, love, love!!!! If your looking for tears, laughter, heart break and an abundance of love-purchase this book. I will be indulging in the next story of this series right away.
  • Almost didn't buy this book...

    By harborgirl
    and still have mixed feelings about it. I HATE first person writing and this was told from Jake's view. Until the fourth chapter I was fighting myself to just give it up and not read it after all because Jake had zero redeeming qualities. I thought he was a cold-hearted sex and ego maniac--a major jerk. However, the fourth chapter got my attention and kept me reading. What unfolded was a compelling story that alternately had me laughing and fighting tears. Was this book perfect? No, and I could do without the all profanity much of the time, especially the "F" word, since it didn't really enhance the plot. However I became so involved in the story I barely saw the curse words after a few more chapters. I loved Chelsea, the plucky aunt, and was rooting for her all the way. The main characters were rich and complex, supporting characters added to the story and I loved all six children, too. The impossible happened--I actually began to like and understand Jake's character. His courtroom defense of the family was brilliant!! If you can stand first person tales, heavy profanity and steamy sex acts with a hero who has to earn your respect and a heroine you love who's able to warm the coldest of hearts, this book is for you! Otherwise, skip it!
  • Well written story!

    By Csal414
    This story captivated me from the beginning. Jake and Chelsea kept me entertained from the beginning. I laughed, shed some tears and couldn't put my iPad away until I finished it. Jake is now one of my favorite book boyfriends! Great job Emma Chase. Definitely ordering your next book.
  • Such a good book

    By Cassiet14
    I must say, I'm a bit frugal and barely spend more than 4.99 for a book but the sample was really good. I'm so glad I "splurged" book was awesome. Well written, so freaking funny and I love that it's from his pov. So often we either get the female pov or it goes back and forth. Jake is one shrewd, blunt bastard but a softy at the same kind of man. The storyline is well balanced. A bit of tragedy, some mischief from the kids, laughter (mostly from Jake and Rory) and just enough steam to enjoy but not feel like you're reading porn. Ms. Chase definitely has a new fan!
