Appealed (The Legal Briefs #3) by Emma Chase [REVIEW]

When 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. 

5 Perfect Stars

I don’t know how Emma Chase does it. I had zero expectations going into Appealed.  When I got it, I thought to myself I would just read a few pages and then go about my day. Four hours later I finished it and I was just smiling from ear to ear.

Appealed is a standalone and is part of The Legal Briefs series. Be sure you blocked a few hours of reading because once you start this book, you will not be able to stop.

There are many things I enjoyed about this one. I loved the writing style, flow and of course characters.

This is Kennedy and Brent’s story.  The story begins with a bit of a flash forward, it doesn’t really give anything away and I usually cringe at these parts, but this time, I found it really funny and I had to know what led up to the events.

Brent and Kennedy were friends back in the day. Brent was the popular, good looking one, where Kennedy was that awkward and plain girl.  You know where this is going.  Something happens and Kennedy and Brent part ways in a very dramatic fashion.

Its years later and Kennedy is back. She’s shiny, pretty and ready to fight in court, against Brent.  I love second chance romances because the tension between Brent and Kennedy are completely warranted.  I loved reading the flashbacks throughout the book because it helped me paint a picture of what kind of relationship Kennedy and Brent had before the fall out.

Brent remembers Kennedy and loves the new woman she has become, but Kennedy is making it hard for Brent to get close to her. I loved Kennedy. I found her sassy, smart and opinionated. She kept on Brent on his toes and I love a strong Heroine. Brent cracked me up and I laughed out loud so many times. One of the things I love so much about Emma Chase books are her POV. I love the male POV and I love Brent.

If you are a fan of the series, Emma Chase or just want to read a funny and cute book, Appealed is for you.
