Publisher's Summary

Emma Chase, New York Times best-selling author of the Tangled series, returns with the second installment of the Legal Briefs series!
A knight in tarnished armor is still a knight.
When you're a defense attorney in Washington, DC, you see firsthand how hard life can be and that sometimes the only way to survive is to be harder. I have a reputation for being cold, callous, and intimidating - and that suits me just fine. In fact it's necessary when I'm breaking down a witness on the stand.
Complications don't work for me - I'm a "need to know" type of man. If you're my client, tell me the basic facts. If you're my date, stick to what will get you off. I'm not a therapist or Prince Charming - and I don't pretend to be.
Then Chelsea McQuaid and her six orphaned nieces and nephews came along and complicated the ever-loving hell out of my life. Now I'm going to Mommy & Me classes, One Direction concerts, and the emergency room and am knee deep in a damn compost pit.
Chelsea's too sweet, too innocent, and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be tough, but she's not. She needs someone to help her and defend her - and the kids.
And that - that I know how to do.

Sexy, tender, funny...this book has it all!

STORY (Romance) - First of all, if you're offended by cursing, stop here. Jake, the male lead, has potty mouth extraordinaire. It's like F this, F that and on and on. I'm fine with it, but it will definitely be a turnoff to many.

If you're okay with the language, then you'll probably LOVE this book. Jake is a sexy bad-boy attorney who only uses women for sex. Chelsea is a grad student whose brother recently died, leaving her with six kids to take care of. It's actually believable the way Jake and Chelsea meet and begin their relationship and even the way Jake is won over by the kids. He's hot and sexy and you will love him! But the best part of the book is the humor. There's one part where Chelsea is sick and Jake is changing a diaper...I listened to it like five times. It's priceless!

PERFORMANCE - Sebastian York has a very low, sexy voice. It's the perfect voice for Jake and perfect for us ladies to listen to!

OVERALL - There's no violence in the book, but there is lots and lots of cussing. There are probably three or four explicit sex scenes, and they are pretty long. I'd guess 30 minutes of sex in the entire story. I'd recommend this book for any female who is okay with cursing and explicit sex. I'll definitely be getting the other books in this series.

Emma Chase Has Her Groove Back!

I was seriously not a fan of Overruled. The story and main characters of that book just were not my cup of tea. But in Emma I Trust. Thought I would give this series one more chance and I am so glad I did! I loved both Jake and Chelsea, oh and their brood! I fell in love with Jake, then wanted to slap him, but then fell in love with him all over again. Chelsea was a strong, caring, loving, selfless and spunky character. She was presented in such a way that drew you into really rooting for her (as well as the kid's) happily ever after. This story was well thought out and entertaining too! I loved how there was just the right amount of humor, sex and angst and how the characters were redeemable. And what can you say about Sebastian York...it's Sebastian York! He always does a fabulous job! I am so happy (& relieved) to be able to give this book 4+ Stars!
