With no disrespect to the Tangled Series, I believe this is the best Emma Chase book I've ever read - and I've read them all. Emma is one of the authors whose books I will buy before I see the synopsis or get a peek at the cover. I pre-order them months in advance and it feels like Christmas when they land on my iPad or at my front door. The Legal Briefs series is tightly written, fast-paced, and uplifting in the best way possible. Sustained, in particular, deserves the top spot on bestseller lists, from Amazon to the New York Times. The series itself is already on my personal "IF list" -- with its well-developed, flawlessly executed storylines, "dead-on" dialogue, hot alpha males (complete with flaws and hang-ups), a meaningful message, and a supporting cast of utterly loveable characters, a movie or a mini-series would be the icing on the cake.
Congratulations, Emma - you knocked this one out of the park. Never, ever stop writing. 5++ sensational stars
Sustained has a little something for everyone in it. It's laugh out loud funny in spots, sweet in other spots. It has moments that break my heart every single time I read them. There's also passion, sexy times and love. It's the love that gets me every time. It's not just the romantic love between Jake and Chelsea, though lord knows that's enough on its own, but it's the love of family that has me sighing endlessly. There's something about seeing a man with kids/babies that just makes me melt.
Focusing on Jake for just a moment...he's one of my all time favorite book boyfriends. The growth he goes through in this book is tremendous. Is he perfect? No. But he's perfect for Chelsea. Together they represent a true relationship to me. Both are human and have flaws but they are truly the perfect match for one another.
The writing here is superb. You truly get the sense that you are living in the moment with these characters, experiencing what they're experiencing. Good, bad or ugly. The pacing is great, too. There's no mad rush at the end to give these characters the ending they truly deserve.
I enjoy the peeks into the secondary characters lives. This is a standlone, but there are characters from other books mentioned. They don't take away from the story at all, they simply enhance it.
This book truly has something for everyone in it. It's one I find myself coming back to time and time again and I can't recommend it highly enough. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars-it deserves them all.
I loved this book from beginning to end!
Sure Jake Becker is a supposedly great criminal defense attorney (I say supposedly because we only to get to see his lawyerly actions once), but he's not exactly looking to settle down. And a family isn't anywhere in his future, near or far.
Even after meeting Chelsea McQuaid, who has had to uproot her life in Cali to assume guardianship of her nieces and nephews after the untimely deaths of her brother and sister-in-law. Chelsea is doing everyone she can to continue to give the kids as stable of a life as possible after the loss of their parents, but there's only so much she can do as they navigate through their grief. Surprisingly only two of the kids act out, but the actions of Rory is the catalyst for Jake and Chelsea's initial meeting.
I loved how everyone seemed to hVe an instant rapport, we didn't get any weird, awkward pauses with the characters. Even Stanton, Sofia and Brent flowed well with the McQuaid clan. Of course you get the requisite male lead to act like d-bag, and Jake does, so it ticked me off just a bit that Chelsea was so forgiving, but that's my only issue with the story.
I can't wait to get Brent's story, it's going to be interesting to see who he will be paired with.
