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

*****4.5 STARS*****
{ARC Provided by Author in Exchange for an Honest Review}
This beautiful, sweet, strong girl in my arms. She got to me forever ago - under my skin, into my heart - and she's been there, waiting, ever since.
This was another FABULOUS series written by the amazing Emma Chase. Since OVERRULED, I have had a little crush on Brent and I have to say after having read this one I am seriously in love with him. APPEALED has two of my favorite tropes, friends to lovers, and second chance romance.
Brent is the last of the crew to remain single. Even though he has a prosthetic leg, it doesn't stop him from being the ultimate ladies man. He's a serious charmer and sinfully sexy as well. He's never had the desire to commit to one woman, or truth be told, he hasn't been tempted since his high school years.
All this changes when he runs into his old childhood friend, Kennedy Randolph. She was the "girl next door". They were the best of friends as children and for a brief moment in High School, they almost became something more, but a misunderstanding ended their romance before it even had a chance to blossom. Kennedy was a little geeky during their teenage years and had to deal with bullying, which Brent wasn't fully aware of at the time but he also didn't stand up for her back then. When they meet again, she has gone through a transformation which is making Brent's head spin, but even back when they were kids he was head over heels for her.
Now they end up being on opposite sides of the court room. Kennedy is the prosecuting attorney in a case that Brent is working the defense for. Sparks fly instantly. There seems to be so much animosity on Kennedy's side that you know you are in store for some seriously STEAMY sex, and hell yes, it was panty melting HOT!!!
Brent has never been able to get close to a woman because in the back of his mind he was comparing them all to Kennedy and they all came up lacking. Now that he has a chance with her, he will do anything to win her heart. The only problem is that Kennedy has had about the same social life as Brent. She has never gotten serious with any man and runs in the opposite direction when a man tries to tie her down. Things that hurt her in the past keep her from opening herself up to any potential heart break. Brent has his work cut out for him as far as Kennedy's concerned.
The whole gang is back this last book in the series and I couldn't have been any happier. Stanton, Sofia, and Jake will be the voice of reason when Brent really needs them the most. I really love all these characters and am kind of sad to have to say goodbye to them now, but I am HIGHLY recommending it to all of you who have not picked up this series yet. You will NOT be disappointed.
I know that I will read ANYTHING that Emma Chase writes. I am a fan for life!

4 "Waldo" Stars
Emma Chase delivers a second chance romance that is written in her delectable all male pov. The characters from the previous books return for what seems to be the final book in the series. This time it’s funny, sexy Brent Mason’s turn.
Brent’s childhood friend/neighbor and first love returns to town. Elle Randolph Kennedy isn’t happy to see him and she’s holding onto some huge past hurts where he’s concerned. It’s been fourteen years since they have seen one another. Elle also happens to be the federal prosecutor on one of Brent’s cases and so it’s game on with the sexual tension, insults and humor.
“What’d you do to your face?” she asks, folding her arms.
I touch my chin. “I grew a beard.”
“Well ungrow it. It looks like a vagina from a 1970's porn film.”

Overtime Elle reveals the events that have soured her towards Brent. They spare against one another in the courtroom and in the bedroom. Elle was the girl that always left Brent thinking about what might have been.
Brent and Elle’s story is fast paced and witty. I really loved Brent, his butler, his physiatrist and his knack for nicknames. He made a wonderful hero and the author does a great job gifting glimpses into past events that shattered Elle and sparked her tough exterior.
”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.”
Brent fixes his past wrongs while squaring off against Elle in the courtroom. I liked how things went for his client the hacker (he needs a book) and there is some scary drama when Elle’s safety is at risk. Brent struggles with his fears and these two find the once in a lifetime common ground they lost years ago. The story also includes not one but an epilogue and an extended one which will leave readers sporting satisfied smiles.

"She's always been in my thoughts, even when I didn't realize it."

I loved this story for so many reasons, first of all because it's a second chance romance and enemies to lovers! And second because the story was refreshing! It has everything that I love in a story! It was fast paced, hot, funny and sweet !Seriously Emma Chase knows how to write amazing stories with funny moments!
I loved the combination of Brent and Kennedy, they make the perfect couple! Brent is smart, cocky, super hot and protective! Kennedy is a heroine that you can relate with and envy her for her character! I really liked her and I found her strong, sweet and smart! Their moments together are flirty, sensual and hot! I loved how their relationship developed slowly!
Characters from the previous books do make cameos but I can't say anything since I haven't read about them yet! But I already have the previous books and I'm planning to read them since I love Emma Chase she is a brilliant author! You should definitely meet Brent and Kennedy especially if you are a fan of second chances romance!

4.5 Stars!
I had a lot of fun reading this book. It's totally hilarious, sexy, and with a mild angst going on. Another book added to my favorite rom com!
Appealed is the third book of The Legal Briefs series and it's all about the youngest and the wealthiest lawyer in the Mason-Becker-Santos-Shaw law firm, Brent Mason. Brent became infatuated with his childhood best friend Kennedy Randolph when they were in High School. Their parents, who are both filthy rich and influential, are family friends. Brent and Kennedy shared a genuine friendship while growing up but one night they realized that they're into each other. They eventually had a hot teenage love affair. However, certain things ruined their blooming relationship which led to their unpleasant break-up. Now years later they reunited and this time, they're already both successful lawyers. Unfortunately, they're on the opposite sides as Kennedy serves as a prosecuting attorney for the case which Brent defenses.
To be honest, I had doubts if this book will win me over after reading Jake's story in the second book which I really enjoyed a lot. But wow, I didn't expect this book to own me as much as the second book did! Brent's story and his hilarious POV didn't fail to make me laugh, smile, and feel awed. It was such a pleasure to read something that has an over-the-top (in a good way) chemistry between the main characters and spot-on witty dialogues that certainly entertained. My favorite scenes were the ones where Brent and Kennedy exchanged sexy banters inside the courtroom. Wow, so much verbal action going on!
Apart from the fact that this book was entertaining, it had an emotional depth and more importantly, a substance. There was family and friendship values thrown in. I also loved the romantic build-up which was strong enough to make the story likeable. The characters also didn't delve much into annoying and unnecessary dramas, so there's that. And yes, there were certainly lots of cheese but I love it nonetheless. In this book, I was definitely cheese-spoiled! :)

’For all the girls next door - and the boys who love them.’
I was all in when I read that dedication. The idea of the boy next door falling in love with the neighbor girl is iconic and one that has women saying, “Awe!”
”A simple story about a handsome prince, a good-hearted princess, and their sweet love.”
Awe, doesn’t that sound lovely and all it needs is the magical - “They lived happily ever after.” As with any story nothing comes easy and especially second chances. Brent is the guy during his high school days that all the other males wanted to be and all the females fawned over. Now, that he’s in his early thirties and has become less of the ‘young and dumb’ stage and more of mature adult, he’s become a guy to be admired.
Kennedy, the girl next door, was more of the nerdy social circle during her high school years. Fourteen years has passed since she’s seen Brent and she’s back in town for work. Her first line of business is a criminal case against Brent’s young client.
The case these two are trying against each other hits close to home for me. It’s about a young teenage boy who feels unseen and does something drastic to get the attention of those around him. His actions were of the criminal nature but his intent wasn’t. It was like Ms. Chase knew my son’s friend who did something similar to the teenager in the story. This is the second book by Ms. Chase where a young male character has found himself brushing up against the law. The previous book had an even younger male who found himself pushing the boundaries with the law. As stated by many others besides myself… Ms. Chase knows the male mind quite well.
The second book, Sustained, remains as my favorite Emma Chase book written to date and this book comes in second place for favorites by Ms. Chase. I love the older characters, the witty banter, the intriguing story line, and most of all the male point of view. Thank you, Ms. Chase, for your continued pursuant in writing humorous renditions from male mind.
