ARC 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 Stars

Ms. Chase never fails me. I can always count on a non-stop, hilarious and steamy read from this author. And Appealed is another hit that shows us the funny side of a male's POV!

Brent Mason is a partner in a law firm that he runs with his guys--Stanton and Jake. We've previously met those two earlier in the series, and they continue to be part of Brent's story in Appealed. His two best friends find love and watching their life  change forever with Daddy duties, Brent has no interest in that life and being tied down. He loves his freedom of working, traveling whenever and having a line of ladies with no attachments. 

But when his childhood friend and neighbor comes back to DC, she's no longer that socially awkward teen. Kennedy Randolph has returned home with more confidence and  even more beautiful. And did I mention she is the new DC prosecutor? Yep, she'll be facing off in court with Brent. Kennedy is ready to face Brent, but doesn't take in account that all those feelings for him will come back and cause her issues!

Appealed is a fun and sexy read that is about first crushes and second chances at love. Brent doesn't know what hits him, until Kennedy comes back into his life. He thought he wanted the bachelor lifestyle, but it turns out that Kennedy is making him want more. And that extended epilogue... I couldn't have swoon and smiled more!
