When you’re a defense attorney in Washington, DC, you see firsthand how hard life can be, and that sometimes the only way to survive is to be harder. I, Jake Becker, have a reputation for being cold, callous, and intimidating—and that suits me just fine. In fact, it’s necessary when I’m breaking down a witness on the stand. Complications don’t work for me—I’m a “need-to-know” type of man. If you’re my client, tell me the basic facts. If you’re my date, stick to what will turn you on. I’m not a therapist or Prince Charming—and I don’t pretend to be. Then Chelsea McQuaid and her six orphaned nieces and nephews came along and complicated the ever-loving hell out of my life. Now I’m going to Mommy and Me classes, One Direction concerts, the emergency room, and arguing cases in the principal’s office. Chelsea’s too sweet, too innocent, and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be tough, but she’s not. She needs someone to help her, defend her…and the kids. And that—that, I know how to do.

Delightful! Beautifully written with sparkling dialogue, well-rounded characters, steamy loving sex scenes & a plot line that wraps around your heart. Jake & Chelsea manage to fall in love, despite her commitment to six orphaned kids. The kids, of course, are laugh-out-loud funny all the way through the book. The guy point of view is a nice touch. Well done, Emma Chase! IOTB

I don't really read contemporary romance at all, and yet I enjoyed this one quite a bit. The premise -- douchebag lawyer hero falls for heroine who is responsible for her six nieces and nephews after her brother's death -- is a good one, the two main characters have lots of spark, and watching this cocky hero laid low by a bunch of hilarious kids is super entertaining. This was a super fun weekend read -- romance fans, check it out!

My favorite kind of read. SUSTAINED is definitely a character- driven romance. There is humor, laughter, emotional connections, and a hero and heroine who strike delightful sparks off each other. I love the little ones....they were my FAV.

Love love love Jake! *drools* and the kids! Although they were quite a handful, and very much troublesome, the kids really add another element to the book. It was an emotional yet hilarious journey! Not to mention passionate! Well done Emma Chase <3
