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.Holy cow!!!
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 probably my fav book in the series! I say probably because I abso-f*cking-lutely loved Sustained but this was even beyond that one!
Enemies to lovers! Brent and Kennedy’s story was so much different from the previous two.
Brent and Kennedy have known each other since… forever. Having grown up next door to each other in their privileged world they soon become best friends with a bond promising much but every dream and promise shattered after their time at the same exclusive boarding school. Now, 14 years later, Brent is surprised to see Kennedy in the courtroom as the prosecutor on his current case.
Brent was the BEST! I really loved him! He was always so charming, funny and living his life at its fullest. He’s a successful criminal defense attorney but he’s so much fun. He’s loyal to his friends and thankful to have them in his life. Kennedy was in part as much fun as Brent but her past has left its mark on her. She cannot forgive Brent for all that happened 14 years ago even though she pretends to have left the past behind.
The chemistry between them was explosive! Really, I have no idea how Emma Chase manages to create and match her characters so perfectly! I enjoyed both of them so much. They were two incredible characters and you could really feel the tension between them.
Appealed was an incredibly heart-warming second chance love story, with realistic characters and a realistic plot. This was no first sight love! Brent and Kennedy have known each other since they were kids but that does not mean that they get back together as soon as they see each other. Their relationship tales time to develop and it was wonderful following their journey.
We also get to catch up with all the characters from the previous books, which was amazing, and as if that wasn’t incredible enough the author offers us an extended epilogue set into their future! Simply breathtaking!
The legal briefs series was a beautiful series and I can’t believe it’s over! I had so much fun reading Stanton and Sofia, Chelsea and Jake and now Brent and Kennedy’s stories that I definitely know I will be re-reading them soon-ish!
