Review: Overruled by Emma Chase

Overruled CoverTitle: Overruled (The Legal Briefs #1)
Author: Emma Chase
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Book description:

Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series, returns with the first installment of the Legal Briefs Series.

As a DC defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing – with his southern drawl, disarming smile and captivating green eyes – he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.

Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.

Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart and mother of his beloved ten-year old daughter. Jenny is getting married — to someone who isn’t him.

That’s definitely not part of the plan.

Sofia Santos is a city raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.

But when Stanton, her “friend with mind-blowing benefits” begs for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him – to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi – to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves.

Her head tells her she’s crazy…and her heart says something else entirely.

What happens when you mix a one stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage and a gun-toting Nana?

The Bourbon flows, passions rise and even the best laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.


A touching, emotional, and enlightening love story. ❤

Goodness gracious, this book had me in tears! Sad yet happy tears, of course! 😉

This wasn’t a typical romance, and I LOVED it for that reason! It was unique, and endearing. The first two characters we meet grow SO much from when the story begins and we see them in their teens. As their journeys unfold (and now as adults), they realize how the love they still have for one another shaped them into the people they wanted to grow into all along.

I know that may sound really deep, but that’s what I took away from this book. GAHH! It was so emotional (at least for me it was). This was such a heartwarming story and absolutely superb! I can’t say that enough.

I don’t want to reveal too much, because I think any more information will ruin it for you. But, I can honestly say, I’ve never read another book like this before. Hands down, this was something beautiful and one-of-a-kind. It wasn’t just about a romance between two people; it was also about the love, loyalty, and bond of family. ❤

My favorite part thing about our main guy, Stanton, is his view on family. His home roots are down in the south and thanks to his upbringing, he’s got a great head on his shoulders, and a fiery determination to succeed in everything he puts his mind to. He wants nothing but the best for everyone. Stanton is always thinking about how to protect and honor his loved ones, and even though he may seem like a playboy, deep down he’s a true romantic and a genuine guy.

I enjoyed reading the fun dynamic between Stanton and Sofia. She’s the sexy Brazilian bombshell and he’s the hunky cowboy who fall deeply in love. *sigh*

I could (and would) share some quotes to tease you from this book (ESPECIALLY CH 23! OMG), but I think I dog-eared every other page of my paperback! 😀 I know you’ll love this story too, because it’s just that wonderful!

Emma has an extraordinary talent for writing stories that make you care about the characters. Overruled pulled me in and didn’t let go.

Hurry and 1-click this unforgettable book!
