Appealed (Legal Brief Series) by Emma Chase

Appealed 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 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.

While on a long-haul flight from Canada to Australia, scribd recommended this book to me, and having an excessively large amount of time on my hand, I thought why not? And then, I was hooked and quickly worked my way through the rest of Ms. Chase's books.

Written in the first person and switching back and forth between Kennedy and Brent, this novel is satisfying in all senses of the word. A great cast of characters, a satisfying build-up, believable characters and action, romance, comedy, heartbreak and a sweet ending, this book has truly become a firm favourite. Not only is this a strong read the first time, it also stands up to the test of re-reading and keeps the reader hooked, albeit knowing the ending.

Not being a fan of modern romance, I can say from the bottom of my heart that Ms. Chase has become a firm favourite in my mind, and I'm truly excited to see her further novels. A fantastic read!

Rating: 4.5/5
