New Review – APPEALED by Emma Chase

I don’t know how she does it but she does it every time. 5 stars.



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.


I knew it with Tangled, I definitely knew it with Overruled, I absolutely flipping knew it with Sustained, but Appealed has officially confirmed it; Emma Chase is the queen of the male POV. I have been desperate for this book for so long and to say “it did not disappoint,” would be a major understatement.

This entire series has been one 5 star read after another, and I fell head over heels for Brent and Kennedy’s story. Second chance romance where the main characters are on opposing sides in the courtroom? It made for truly addictive reading. Man, talk about sexual tension and chemistry. These two were on fire!!!!

I loved everything about their story (both past and present) and I loved seeing the rest of the gang, and where they are now; the author really made me feel like I was part of the group, and I really will miss them now the series has ended.

Usually I can’t wait to read an epilogue (a big fat HEA is my favourite part of a book), but with Appealed, I just wasn’t ready for it to be over. I wanted this book to go on forever!!! But even so, the epilogue was perfection, and the extended epilogue we are treated to? Even more so.

No one writes quite like Emma Chase. 5 perfect stars.

By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother of two who resides in a small, rural town in New Jersey. By night she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.

Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.
