The New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled books returns with the third standalone romance in the Legal Briefs series, a collection of sexy novels about first crushes, second chances, and the final verdict of the heart.
When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn't see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman...who wants to crush the most intimate--and prized--parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Louboutins.
When Kennedy looks at Brent, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school in order to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell for her.
But she's not a lovesick social outcast anymore--she's a Washington, DC, prosecutor with a long winning streak. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case, and Kennedy thinks it's time to put him through a little hell of his own.
But things aren't exactly working out the way she planned. Brent has his sights set on Kennedy, and every fiery exchange only makes him want her more--and makes her wonder if he's as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. In the end, they may just find themselves in love...or in contempt of court.
If there's one thing Emma Chase knows
how to do to perfection, then it's writing
in a male's point of view.
I've really enjoyed The Legal Briefs series and Appealed was no exception.
She nails a man's thoughts to perfection.
It had the humor and all the emotions.
Appealed was a funny and beautiful second chances and from
friends to lovers
I really enjoyed Brent and Kennedy's romance.
From friends to lovers.
Well, at first it was enemies
then friends and onto lovers.
It was done with the right pace
and took its time to establish their history and their feelings towards each other.
Their bantering and sexual chemistry was just right and worked damn well.
I thought they were two intriguing and interesting characters who hid a lot of emotions behind the surface.
Brent and Kennedy both came across
as hard and self assured
when they were anything but!!!
In particular Kennedy who was a very insecure woman behind her cool demeanor. But she had all the right reasons
to act that way.
All the other characters from the series appeared and it was just like coming home. Their friendship was just a wonderful thing to be a part of.
That's what makes the series special to me.
