Publisher's Summary

Emma Chase, New York Times best-selling author of the Tangled series, returns with the first installment of the Legal Briefs series!
A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don't call him the Jury Charmer for nothing - with his Southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he's a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross-examined by him.
Stanton's a man with a plan. And for a while life is going according to that plan.
Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved 10-year-old daughter. Jenny is getting married - to someone who isn't him.
That's definitely not part of the plan.
Sofia Santos is a city-raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn't have time for relationships or distractions.
But when Stanton, her "friend with mind-blowing benefits", begs her for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him to The-Middle-of-Nowhere, Mississippi, to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. Her head tells her she's crazy... and her heart says something else entirely.
What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-toting Nana?
The Bourbon flows, passions rise, and even the best-laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.

Odd Woman Out

I guess I will be the odd person out as I didn't like the story line. Stanton was a total fail as a father and completely clueless where Sofia was concerned. I just didn't buy into the main 2 characters and how Stanton was heading home to convince Jenny not to marry another man while he brings is FWB and continues to have sex with her while trying to win Jenny back. It left a bad taste in my mouth. And I would have liked to see Sofia have more backbone and not let Stanton treat her so poorly.

Couldn't even finish

The storyline was so ridiculous! I couldn't finish! I mean if you have a friends with benefits relationship that's one thing but what woman in her right mind would go with a man while he tries to convince his baby mama not to marry another man and continues to have sex with him! How little do you have to think of yourself. I wish I could get my money back!
