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.

Worst Narrator Ever

Emma Chase is the BEST!!!! Her writing never disappoints! Appealed has a wonderful story, smart, sexy=Smexy!

However, the narrator sounds like a very nice Gay Guy! My gay guy friend listened to an exert and agreed. The narrator sounds like a gay guy. It ruined for me the romantic, sexy aspect of the book. I've never had to put an Emma Chase book down to take a break from listening. It took me 4-5 tries to get through this book because of the narrator.

I've stopped downloading my fave author's books if Deacon Lee narrates. I can't get that romantic feeling about a book read by someone who sounds like the late-great comedian Paul Lynde. EMMA CHASE, I love your books, hated this narrator! :-(
