Sustained (Legal Briefs #2) by Emma Chase - Review

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, Jake Becker, 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 turn you on. 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, the emergency room, and arguing cases in the principal's office.

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, defend her…and the kids.

And that — that, I know how to do.


I adored this book completely. It was amazing - I devoured it in five hours. Literally. I started it at 8 o'clock at night and was finished by 12:30am. The time just flew by it was that amazing.

Jake just stole my heart. The way he just stepped in to help the kids, as if they were his own, we're just adorable. I'm not going to lie, I swooned. I think Jake is my Book Boyfriend of the Year for this year. He was perfect. I adored him whole heartedly. I especially liked how the book was from his point of view throughout - I loved how he was with the little ones. 

I loved all the kids. They were amazing - they all had their own personalities, which were charming, delightful and unique. They just made me laugh - especially when Jake first 'bumped' into Rory. The little troublemaker was hilarious.

I loved Chelsea - I loved how down-to-earth she was. How she took on all her brother's kids. She was just so awesome and cool - if I were to meet her in real life, I'd want her to be my best friend.

Overall this book is kick-ass. I have such a book hangover from reading it, so I am going to scour Goodreads for more romance's with substitute father's.

Worth It (Forbidden Men #6) by Linda Kage - ARC Review

I fell in love once.

It was amazing. She was amazing. Life was amazing.

I lived for each time I could see her, and nothing else mattered, not that our families were enemies, our time together was forbidden, or we had to meet in secret.

Our love could conquer all.

Until it didn't.

So I was ripped away from the love of my life and shoved into hell, forced to continue without her.

It shattered me, broke the best parts of me, left me permanently damaged.

Or so I thought.

Years later, I swear history’s trying to repeat itself because she’s back in my life, and I’m just as drawn to her as I was before. But I'm older and wiser now, and I know she should stay away from a worthless ex-con like me.

So, I will not let her in. I absolutely refuse to hurt her. I will keep her away.

Then again, sometimes risking your greatest fear to get to a smile makes everything worth it, and besides, I’m not sure I can resist her, anyway.

This is the story of how Felicity Bainbridge changed my life forever, starting one summer day long ago after I was forced to change a dirty diaper...

--Knox Parker

So, I've just finished Worth It. I adored Knox. I fell in love with him in the flashbacks as a teenage boy - but it was his unwavering love towards Felicity through everything he went through that ultimately stole my heart.

And can I just say how much of a Felicity/Olicity fan I am! Me and my mum watch Arrow religiously. It was awesome to know that you based Felicity off of her - Emily Bett Rickard's is an amazing actress and I adore the quirky adorableness that she brings to such a serious show like Arrow. Okay, fan-girling over.

I loved Felicity in this book - I loved her sneaky, mischievous nature that we saw in the past. I loved her loyalty towards her niece who she was determined to know. What I didn't love was her family. They're evil. Except Garrett - he slightly redeemed himself.

Now, I can't wait till Asher's book. I've always been curious about him and I think we learnt so much about him in this book. There's something about Asher that has me intrigued and mesmerised as well as swooning all at the same time. I have a feeling his book is going to be amazing and he might become my favourite Forbidden Man yet...
