A knight in tarnished armor is still a knight.

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 & 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.

TeriLyn's thoughts: I absolutely LOVED Sustained. Jacob Becker, Chelsea McQuaid and her band of wildy charming kids were such a joy to read. This book, written in the hilarious prose only Emma Chase can wholly provide, touched upon all sorts of my favorite romance book tropes. Bad boy with a heart of gold, sassy woman whose needs and wants are surpassed by those of who she loves most, and six children who undoubtedly steal the show. There's romance, wit, comedy, and so many heart warming components to this book. It was a breeze reading through Jake's point of view as he struggles to understand who he is really is inside. Him discovering himself through the eyes of the McQuaid family was fantastic. Characters from book one are all back to grace the pages. And once again, Emma Chase writes a lovely, funny, and sweet romance. Sustained is perfectly suited for readers to get lost in it's pages for an afternoon. This is definitely my favorite of the series. There's nothing better than watching a big, tough man totally lose it over a woman and the children in her charge.
