Sidebarred: A Legal Briefs Novella
There was a time when Jake Becker had it all together. He was controlled, driven, ruthless—in and out of the courtroom.
Then, six irresistible orphans and their heartbreakingly beautiful aunt crashed into his perfectly ordered life. They changed everything. They changed him. Now he’s a husband, an upstanding member of society, a father figure—a family man.
And he’s pretty damn good at it.
Sure, he has to referee sibling smackdowns, re-learn algebra, ensure his clients stay of jail, and keep his wife happy—but it finally feels like he’s got it together again....
So, of course something has to screw it all up. It’s huge. Life-changing. Kind of terrifying.
And it will be the most amazing, perfect thing he’ll ever do.
Great end to an amazing series
I loved this novella! I read this series awhile ago but this book put me right back in their world. There were so many laughs and sweet moments. There were also some serious moments too. I loved everything about this. Great end to an amazing series.
What a great ending to a good series
I've been a avid reader of Emma Chase's books. She never disappoints, this was such a great book. I'm so glad she wrote this, it was a great book. Highly recommend.
The one thing I detest about Emma Chase books is that they end! Her characters are so real and multidimensional that they seem, for a short time, a part of your life. Ms Chase's writing is clever and whip smart funny...keeping you engaged and emotionally invested the entire story...and for me, even after to story has ended.
This closure to the Legal Brief series is bittersweet, but oh so welcomed. The culmination of all the characters was heartwarming, but the closure for Jake and Chelsea made my heart sigh.
Jake is the kind of man every woman hopes to meet, fall in love and spend the rest of her life with. In him Ms Chase has created the perfect, yet flawed to a small degree, man. That he can love so deeply speaks volumes, especially with the childhood he had. That he could fall in love with the six children who are the nieces and nephews of the extraordinary woman to capture his heart makes him that much more of heartthrob legion. The HEA he and Chelsea are given in this story is the perfect ending...and the way that the tie up of all the characters is presented worked to provide an ending that felt worthy of the series.
