This is a third stand alone novel in the Legal Briefs series by Emma Chase. Another male only POV. *yey*
Brent lost one of his legs in a childhood accident but with years of therapy and support he was able to become successful in almost all aspects of his life. A defense attorney by day and a confirmed bachelor by night, Brent refuses to give a go to any steady relationship.
Kennedy is Brent’s childhood friend and she hasn’t seen him in many years. Reunited when Kennedy turns up to be a prosecutor on one of Brents’s cases, they go head to head against each other in court. There are a lot of things they need to clear up about their past and they work through it in this novel.
Best part about the book was the way the main characters evolved their relationship. They start out with Kennedy pretty much hating Brent’s guts but they eventually get everything out in the open. I appreciated them talking things through. There is a lot of alternating between past and present going on in the book, showing readers their background story.
There is also a strong message about working through and overcoming traumatic events of ones life.
Worst part of the book was a pretty slow beginning. The book was funny but not “Sustained” kind of funny. The second part of the book won me over with hot sex and… feelings…
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed Sustained and Tangled by Emma Chase but be prepared for a trip down memory lane because these two main characters share a past.
