FINAL DECISION: A love letter for fans of the Legal Briefs series, SIDEBARRED takes readers into the adjustments and joys of the happily ever after of Jake, Chelsea and the six children they are raising.
THE STORY: Two years of marriage have managed to be wonderful and yet things are changing again for Jake and Chelsea. They have managed to navigate raising six children and two careers. Happily ever afters are something that a couple has to keep working at and desires and wants might change as well.
OPINION: The story of a man who loves his wife, the children he has taken on as his own and his friends, SIDEBARRED does not take the route of creating unnecessary discord between Jake and Chelsea. Instead, this novella emphasizes how much these two love one another, their willingness to talk and work through their problems and the compromise essential to any good marriage.
This novella was not necessary to the series and one could read the series without it, but as a fan of the characters of the Legal Briefs series, I enjoyed spending just a little more time with these people. Having Jake be the focus of the novella was appropriate because having taken on being the father of six children, he has the most difficult road amongst all the characters of the series.
Fans of the series will be pleased to get an update on all the couples and the adorable McQuaid children. I loved the adorable epilogue to APPEALED but SIDEBARRED brings the series to a close in a sensitive, emotional and funny way.
WORTH MENTIONING: 17 years later epilogue.
CONNECTED BOOKS: SIDEBARRED is book 3.5 in the Legal Briefs series. It really should be read after the series because it depends upon readers knowing the characters, but at the minimum SUSTAINED should be read.
STAR RATING: I give this novella 5 stars.
I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This closure to the Legal Brief series is bittersweet, but oh so welcomed. The culmination of all the characters was heartwarming, but the closure for Jake and Chelsea made my heart sigh.
Jake is the kind of man every woman hopes to meet, fall in love and spend the rest of her life with. In him Ms Chase has created the perfect, yet flawed to a small degree, man. That he can love so deeply speaks volumes, especially with the childhood he had. That he could fall in love with the six children who are the nieces and nephews of the extraordinary woman to capture his heart makes him that much more of heartthrob legion. The HEA he and Chelsea are given in this story is the perfect ending...and the way that the tie up of all the characters is presented worked to provide an ending that felt worthy of the series.
I know I am in the minority here when I say that Stanton is my favorite book boyfriend in this series, but Jake definitely has me debating on whether I should reconsider my decision. I fell pretty hard for him this time around.
Jake and Chelsea have been married for two years and have a wonderful life with their six nieces and nephews, who have truly become their children. The couple decides that they want to add a new member to their family, and so they get right on with the baby making process. MAMA MIA!!! I’m not kidding when I say you are going to have a hard time keeping your panties dry while reading this one ladies!!
Emma Chase is one of my top favorite authors and she seriously delivered another KICK-ASS story for her readers. This woman knows how to create characters that steal your heart and stories that grab a hold of you and won’t let go. If you haven’t read The Legal Briefs series yet, you need to add it to your reading line-up ASAP!
