Book description:

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.



Heart-warming, sexy, and fresh!

Loved every minute of this book! Emma sure knows how to write compelling stories from a male POV. 😉

…and Jake is no exception!  He’s a hot bachelor (and likes to live up to all that entails). Why settle if you can play the field, right? But when his life gets turned upside down thanks to a client, he surprises himself and all his friends with how at ease he is being a guardian to the kids he grows to love.

After Chelsea’s brother and sister-in-law pass away tragically, she becomes the legal guardian of her six —yes, SIX— nieces and nephews. They all vary in age from infant to teenager, and they are all hand-fulls; but, they’re incredible kids. ❤ While coping with the loss of their parents, some of the children need help when they get themselves in sticky situations. Ahem, trouble with the law! Who better than Jake to help them all out? WINK WINK!

Jake knows nothing about parenting, but he sure knows what it’s like to be raised right. His mom and his male mentor growing up instilled great values that have stayed with him as an adult. He’s grateful for the lessons they taught him, and it even helps with some of his cases too. He runs a hard bargain and tells things like they are instead of coddling people. He’s tough, confident, and sharp. When Jake meets Chelsea by chance and sees her situation, he can’t stop thinking of ways to help (no matter how out of character that may be to him).

After spending lots of time with the family (and Chelsea, don’t forget about her 😉 ), he grows to really care for them all. As he and Chelsea get closer, he realizes he’s in too deep and he loves the routine they have with the kids. He’s going to games, attending classes, and after a while all of it becomes second nature. His internal clock has switched and it all happened so quickly, but he likes it…

SQUEE! This story kept me hooked from start to finish! As you can already tell, Jake is going to take you on an emotional and beautiful ride.

The dynamic that Jake had with all the kids was sweet and endearing. His relationship with Chelsea is so fun because she likes to give as good as she gets. She’s smart, funny, and resilient. Her heart is so big and Jake admires her courage and persistence to keep the kids safe and loved.

When I read Overruled, I mentioned that I’ve never read a story like it before. That story made me bawl and want to get in the fetal position because…well, everything! That book was intense, and Sustained is just as amazing–and once again, I have never experienced anything like it. This series is unstoppable!

Sustained pulled at my heart strings and made it skip a beat. Absolute treasure. I loved each and every one of these characters, especially the kids! Ohhhh, they were so precious! You’re going to love them!

Completely addicted to this series and you need to be too! Hurry and 1-click! 🙂
