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.
Brent Mason and Kennedy Randolph. She is the awkward geeky girl next door, He is the cute nerdy lifelong friend. They grew up together in a very privileged life, having each other to make things bearable. They each pined for each other while their friendship grew in their youth… then, due to circumstances beyond their control after finally opening their hearts to each other, they are torn apart.
Kennedy goes awol for years… she is shattered and needs to get away from Brent. Brent is broken hearted, and innocent in what happened. He never forgets her and she never forgets him. When destiny plays a part in their lives and brings them together, can they get over the hurt and remember the love, the fun, the friendship?
I have really missed reading Emma Chase. I love her other books, and had forgotten what an amusing breath of fresh air it is to read her. She is beyond witty and I was laughing so hard with the verbal play between Brent and Kennedy, and especially all the silliness that is Brent in his mind! Emma always writes original stories, with real characters that you just can’t help but fall for!
Can not wait for the next one!!
