Appealed by Emma Chase

The New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled books returns with the third 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.

Review by CA Borgford

I’ll admit upfront that I was anxious for Appealed. Anxious because I loved Sustained and wanted more of that goodness only Chase can offer, but also anxious because I wasn’t sure what else Chase could pull out that would be new and different. I needed not to worry at all.

Appealed starts off introducing a Brent that is very reminiscent of Drew Evans.  Funny, sarcastic and kind of an ass and he knows it. I think Chase hit her stride and things get really special when she introduces Kennedy. ~ Because … she was always the one.”

Kennedy peels back the layers of Brent and shows us just how incredibly sexy, honest and real he can be.
Righting the wrongs and discovering the new is a tall order for Brent. It’s a good thing he has Superhero powers. There are many tender moments and the backstory to these two touches on tough subject matter. The approach is honest, yet delicate in its delivery.

Appealed gave me everything I wanted and more ~ a unique story featuring strong personalities and an epilogue that melted my heart. This is a series I will continue to recommend and revisit.
