REVIEW: Appealed (The Legal Briefs #3) by Emma Chase

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 Christian Louboutins.

Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them.

And now he has his sights set on Kennedy.
When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell. 

She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore - she’s a DC prosecutor with a long winning streak behind her. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case and she thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own. 

But things aren’t exactly working out that way. 

Because every fiery exchange has her wondering if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. Each argument and objection only makes him want her more. In the end, Brent and Kennedy may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court. 

APPEALED is a sexy, humorous romance about first crushes, second chances and the final verdict of the heart. 

4 "Randy Randolph" STARS

This is Brent’s story, the last in the funny foursome of Emma Chase’s Legal Briefs series. As I’ve said before, Emma is definitely my go-to for a hilarious romantic escapade that’s bound to bring me to tears with laughter, cause butterflies in my tummy and my heart rate to uptick with the sexy times.

This is a second chance story of Brent Mason and his neighbour and also childhood friend, Kennedy Randolph. These two had a meaningful friendship and a brief romantic encounter when younger that ended abruptly with confusion for both parties as to what they thought went down.

Now years later, they find themselves face-to-face on different sides of a case and Kennedy is out for blood. Gone is the girl Brent remembers and in her place is a woman scorned.

Although, Brent sees through her venom and slowly breaks down her barriers.

The sparring and banter between these two was hilarious.

“What’d you do to your face?” she asks, folding her arms. 

I touch my chin. “I grew a beard.”

“Well ungrow it. It looks like a vagina from a 1970s porn film.”

This was definitely one of those great love-hate relationships and when Kennedy and Brent were on, they were damn good!

“The ride is the only thing that makes the fall worth it.”
I also enjoyed the presence of the entire gang from this series…Jake’s my absolute fave and loved seeing how he’s dealing with teenagers and being a father…
And Emma, thank you for that awesome epilogue. It was absolutely perfect and totally had me grinning from ear to ear. No better way to end!
