Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling 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.

It's a sad day when a storyline with great potential is railroaded by sub-par narration. Honestly, I am officially not a fan of Deacon Lee. Unfortunately, this may be the fourth or fifth book I've listened to with him as the narrator. I'm sure in another story, with a non-romantic themed storyline, he's fantastic, but, not this genre, not this book.

The Legal Briefs series has been stellar up to this one. APPEALED was good, it was, but, really, the narration stole the show, and not in a good way. The best part of the story was the epilogue, which pulled everything together in one of the best HEA's I've heard in awhile. I still love Emma Chase, and would purchase other books by this author, but sadly, this one was just ok.

Deacon Lee is NOT Alpha Male

Would you listen to Appealed again? Why?

I liked it better the 1st time I listened to it. However, the second time all I heard was the snarky tremble of Deacon Lee's voice. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Emma Chase. I have all her Audio books and have listened to them all several times. I like that this is 1st person in the males perspective - Has the usual dry humor with laugh out loud moments. The characters are well developed. There is some "trip down memory lane" moments but they are done in a way that doesn't leave the listener confused. No insta-love and this is a stand alone story. It's an Emma Chase story what's not to love... Except the narrator :(

If you’ve listened to books by Emma Chase before, how does this one compare?

Tangled is still my favorite. In this series probably Sustained. This is more a 2nd chance romance.

Would you be willing to try another one of Deacon Lee’s performances?

NO...just no. He has so many voices and his female voice is actually less distracting then his normal narrative voice when he's not in character. When he portrays other male characters it's less shaky.. But when he's narrating the H...his voice is just whiney

Really funny, brilliant read.

What made the experience of listening to Appealed the most enjoyable?

As with all of Emma Chases stories, the romance and sexiness is fun and full of humour. the story is poignant and it is easy to love the characters faults and insecurities. Of course, the narration makes or breaks an audible experience and Deacon Lee is one of the best.

What did you like best about this story?

The main characters have depth and are believable, their history and mis communication has affected both of their lives and of course it has the best kind of happy ending.
Read the series if you can.

Which character – as performed by Deacon Lee – was your favourite?

Brent, of course, he is a great character, optimistic and loyal. Deacon Lee is brilliant.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed all the way through, Brent and Kennedy's parents are hilarious and the bullying and tormenting Kennedy suffers through school is sad, especially when you see how it has affected her attitude.
