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 is the first book that I've read that was written by Emma Chase, but it won't be the last. This book had a fresh plot and excellent character development. I enjoyed the male POV. Very entertaining! This book is part of The Legal Briefs Series, and I will definitely be checking out the others. PSP

This is a cross between Cinderella, Cheaper By The Dozen and Suits! I love the banter and wit, the smart-assery. I love watching the fall of the demi-god that is Jake to the feet of sweet, over-her-head Chelsea but also to the feet of six beyond precocious kids who are in need of love and attention. Maybe in some way Jake is in need too. Absolutely. Amazing. start. to. finish. I laughed. I cried. I fanned myself. Simply Delicious!

An excellent Male POV only romance! ★¸¸.•*¨*•★Minor spoilers alert★•*¨*•.¸¸★ I’ve been a fan of author Emma Chase’s writing style and story ideas every since the Tangled series hit my e-reader. Initially, I wasn’t too excited to read a series based on lawyers, but I dove into this series back in late 2015 and fell in love with it because of her skillful storytelling and because of Jason Carpenter’s awesome audiobook performance in Overruled. I’m so glad my local library had the audiobook of book 2 available when I was in the mood to find out what happened next in this entertaining and not dull at all series. I loved everything single thing about Jake and Chelsea’s love story including Sebastian York’s narrating performance. The latter came as a huge surprise to me because I’d yet to find him well-suited to any contemporary novel he’d previously narrated including Emma’s hit Tangled series. I could barely tolerate him on the novella Holy Frigging Matrimony: A Tangled Series Short Story. However, I had no trouble envisioning him as Jake, and I truly enjoyed his voice acting choices for both Jake and Chelsea and all of the supporting characters especially Chelsea’s six nieces and nephews. Coming up next: Appealed, the last standalone novel in this contemporary lawyer series which focuses on Jake’s buddy, Brent Mason.

Sustained by Emma Chase (Audio Edition) Narrated by Sebastian York Legal Breifs #2 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This book was recommended to me and I am glad I picked it up. Jake likes to think he is such a badass…. I mean, he is… except when it comes to Chelsea and her bunch of rascals. With them, he just seems to melt into a big softie. He was always there for them when needed. The kids trusted and cared for him and he made sure they felt safe and happy. Which I loved. The way Jake handles the situations he found himself in were often laugh out loud funny. Although I haven’t read the first book in this series.. I may just go back and take a listen now! Sebastian York did a fantastic job reading this book. I will be adding him to my list of favourite Narrators!

This book is AMAZING! 10,000 stars. Top Emma Chase read to date. I listened to Sustained on audiobook and I'm so glad I did. I had my doubts going into this. Overruled was...not my favorite book. I couldn't handle Stanton Shaw. But...I LOVE Emma Chase's writing and I love Sebastian York's narration, so I thought I would give the second book in The Legal Brief's series a chance. I'm SO glad I did. Things I loved about this book: ~ Emma Chase is able to write such a good male POV. I don't even miss the female POV. Being in Jake's head is exactly where I wanted to be. The writing is such a great combination of funny, sexy and intelligent. I was quickly sucked into the story and invested in the characters. ~ Jake. OMG. I LOVE Jake. I love that he is honest (almost to a fault). I love that he is a bit of a jerk. I love that he is afraid he doesn't have what it takes to be in a relationship. I love that he can't turn away from Chelsea and the kids. Jake really made this book for me. ~ The kids. I was afraid that the kids would detract from the story. Let me tell you. These kids made the story even better for me. They were all unique, they all pulled on my heart for a different reason and I just LOVED Jake's reaction to them. I loved how he didn't talk to them like they were kids. Jake with the kids was completely swoon-worthy. ~ Chemistry. Seriously. This book had some HOT scenes. The chemistry between Jake and Chelsea, the way he is with her ... you may need a change of clothes. OMG! I loved every second. ~ Laugh out loud. Did I mention this book was funny? Yes it has some serious, somber moments. But this book made me laugh OUT loud while listening. I had my ear buds in and my daughter would ask me what was so funny because I just couldn't contain my laughter. ~ Mention of STD's. So often in books, the guy is a manwhore and the subject of STD's never comes up. Emma Chase did a great job of bringing up this topic and how serious it is. Much respect is due for authors that remind readers that it is a huge risk to sleep around. ~ Strong heroine. Chelsea rocked. She was strong. She was feminine. She was awesome with her nieces and nephews. She did not put up with any BS from Jake. Emma Chase created a great female lead character with Chelsea. What I didn't like about this book: Not a thing. Book like this one is why I read. From the first line I was hooked and I couldn't get enough until I read to the end. Bottom line: Sustained is funny, sexy, serious and captivating. READ THIS BOOK!!! I can't wait to read more by this author. Highly recommend the audiobook as well. Sebastian York nailed Jake's POV.
