Review: Appealed by Emma Chase

descriptionWhen 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 Christian Louboutins.

Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them.
And now he has his sights set on Kennedy.

** When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell.

She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore - she’s a DC prosecutor with a long winning streak behind her. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case and she thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own.
But things aren’t exactly working out that way.

Because every fiery exchange has her wondering if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. Each argument and objection only makes him want her more. In the end, Brent and Kennedy may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.

APPEALED is a sexy, humorous romance about first crushes, second chances and the final verdict of the heart.



4 of 5 stars

From the moment we met Brent in Overruled I knew he was going to be my fav' in the group. His easy-going self, his humor, his charm were all things that led me to believe he was going to be IT for me. And I had to wait quite some time to have the confirmation.

"When I look at you, think about you, I can’t decide if I want to fuck you, strangle you, or just hold you in my arms. Usually all three. And if that’s not love, I don’t know what is.” 

If you've read one book from Emma Chase, you all know by now she does know how to write male pov! Always catchy, always funny, always low on the drama, it's like she's been a male in another life. In Appealed, she brought us readers in the head of a charming guy who got it all. 

Brent is a successful defence lawyer who's got more money than he could count. He also has a famous name but is more proud to have made something himself than use his connection to have favors. He's loyal, has friends he can call family and who means the world. Though lately he feels a little lonely because his three best friends all have lifes and responsibilities to take care of. 

Brent has never thought of settling down, but this might change when one day during a family gathering he meets Kennedy, his childhood best friend.
“Didn’t you ever have someone that you compare every other person against? This one’s nice, but not as nice . . . that one’s smart, but not as smart . . . “She’s always been in my thoughts, even when I didn’t realize it. The one every other woman has gotten compared to, and fallen short. "

Things could be easy if it wasn't for Kennedy pissed attitude and the fact she is also Brent's new opponent in the court.

Kennedy is a tough cookie, smart, sharp and pissed for a good reason. She's not ready to let Brent in but the guy is relentless in his pursuit.

“Brent . . .” She gasps, fingers running through my hair. “This is real. Tell me this is real.” My eyes jerk up to hers and I cup her jaw in one hand. “It’s real. This is so real I can’t stop shaking.” 

Appealed has everything I enjoy in this kind of book, a loveable guy who uses all the good words to make a girl fall, an heroine who gives as much as she receives ( ... And I'm not only talking about the sex here), a story low on the drama and goes with the flow, a second chance romance....... And we also catch up with all the previous couples which was pretty awesome considering there were ALL amazing

I coudn't finish my review without speaking about the epilogue which was perfect to me! It was everything a reader could wish for an ending within a trilogy! Just begging for a little more... :)
