Sustained by Emma Chase #XOXperts 


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.

Before I started this book I was in a huge reading rut.  This novel solved that problem. 

Chelsea is a young woman raising her brothers six children.  Enter Jake!  This is not what Jake has in mind for the rest of his life.  But, Chelsea and Jake have such chemistry and with all the antics of the children, Jake is won over.

I had a hard time putting this book down and I didn’t want it to end.  Chelsea and Jake’s story lit up the pages.  Jake has a wonderful personality….he is a little bit of a smart butt! Some of his comments made me laugh out loud. The children also keep the story moving with their antics and all the trouble they cause. 

I was impressed with this romantic, funny tale! I have found a new author and a new series! I MUST go back and pick up book one, Overuled. 

I received this novel from Simon and Schuster as part of XOXpert.  I love being an XOXpert!!!
