4 Stars~Sustained by EMMA CHASE

 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.

After a heavy and emotional read I decided to go for something sexy and fun. 
This was my first Emma Chase book and the raving reviews 
and talk only added to my excitement. 
Sustained didn't disappoint!
It felt fresh to read the POV from a man's perspective 
throughout the entire story.
Jake Becker is a defense attorney and takes his work very seriously. 
He's not interested in anything 
but a fun night and a great lay. 
Speaking of women. 
They are not a problem since Jake is one sexy ass man, 
with tattoos and works out regularly. 
He works with his friends, 
Stanton, Sofia and Brent at the same firm. 
As a kid he was bit of a wild child. 
Got himself into trouble. 
It wasn't until a certain judge took him under his wings, 
that Jake found his true calling as an attorney.
Jake meets the gorgeous Chelsea, 
when his wallet gets stolen by her nephew Rory. 
Jake finds out that she's not only Rory's guardian 
but also to his 5 other siblings.
I'm in awe of Chelsea who decides to take this task on. 
To be the guardian to her deceased brother's six children. 
She's so loyal and selfless. 
To just give up her education and be a parent to these children. 
Love and family means everything to her. 
Her connection to Jake is right there from
 the moment they first meet. 
They just match each other perfectly.
Jake becomes a new and different man because of that.
 Takes on more responsibility, especially with the children and starts to change. 
But old habits die hard and Jake tries to go back to his old ways, 
when it comes to women and relationships.

This was such a fun and fresh book. I enjoyed Jake's point of view. 
Emma Chase knows how to write from a man's perspective.
 I laughed out loud at times. 
It felt so male and it was spot on. 
It had the right amount of drama, romance and sex. 
I'm now a fan of reading a book from a man's perspective, thanks to Emma Chase.
 I can't wait to read about Brent who's next in the series.
