Overruled by Emma Chase [6,000 Likes Giveaway]



As a 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 was going according to that plan.

Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart and mother of his beloved ten-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 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.


4 Hello Mr. Stanton Stars

Overruled is a standalone novel and is the first book in The Legal Briefs series.

YAY! It’s an Emma Chase novel! **Jumps for joy**.  I love Emma!

Things I loved:
-          Short and sweet Check
-          Lawyer theme Check
-          Steamy Check
-          No Flashbacks! Check

Stanton isn’t your typical hero. He’s not lovable and he has major character flaws. Doesn’t that spark your interest? I know it does.

Overruled starts in the beginning, when Stanton is in high school. Stanton and his girlfriend, Jenny, get pregnant.  Stanton has a full-ride in law school across the country. He wants to give it all up to help Jenny raise the baby. Jenny refuses to let Stanton give up his hopes and dreams and forces him to go and make something of himself.

Stanton tries to be in his daughter’s life as much as possible, with visits and phone calls. But Jenny and Stanton decide to have an open relationship.

Ten years later Stanton is still in New York.

The beginning totally blew me away. I kept on asking myself if Jenny was going to have a huge role in the novel. I’m always cautious reading where an ex-girlfriend is involved, especially one with major history with the Hero.  This one will make you nervous, but you will be okay. I promise. I was.
Sofia is the sexy co-worker.  She is the yin to Stanton’s yang. Stanton and Sofia work great together and after a few late nights they decide to start a fling.  Both are keeping it light. For one Stanton has ties to his past and Sofia isn’t going to be the silly girl that falls head over heels over a guy.

I love love love Sofia. She is so strong, successful and I completely felt for her. She is also sassy and confident.  Sofia has no plans in messing up whatever Stanton has going on with jenny.
Stanton gets an invite to go back home and begs Sofia to come back home with him.  < --- sounds fishy? Right? Well, it kind of is. I told you Stanton isn’t your perfect Hero, but somehow it makes me crave him more.

Sofia is there to be strong and help support Stanton. She’s more a crutch and I totally felt Sofia’s inner monologues.  She struggles with her feelings with Stanton, but she also respects the situation. She’s in a hard place and I was on edge reading it.

So, you have the ex, the anit-Hero and the side-fling, it makes for one drama-angst-tension filled read. It’s a complete Emma Chase novel.

The thing that really worked for me is the pace. Overruled read fast and easy. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I also was on edge a few times, never knowing how Stanton would act and never knowing how Sofia would react.

Oh and don’t worry, there’s Drew in there a few times. I enjoyed those parts very much.
If you are an Emma Chase fan, then you will not be disappointed!
