Sustained – Emma Chase



Emma Chase is the Queen of funny and witty writing and Sustained demonstrated just that.

Jake Becker, is a very successful attorney in D.C., he likes his routine and things a certain way – his way.  Neat and easy are also some of the words he lives by.  iHe would have made a great military man, except he doesn’t like to follow orders.  He likes one night stands  and casual hookups.  He thinks he doesn’t have time for anything “else”.

Chelsea McQuaid, twenty-six year old aunt of 6 orphaned nephews and nieces.  They make up this amazing but crazy household that Jake stumbles into, when Rory, one of the kids steals his wallet.  Chelsea, is hanging in there.  Doing her very best.  Missing her deceased brother and trying to keep the kids from sliding into an emotional abyss.  She definitely has her hands full.  Trouble is brewing left and right.  And she really appreciates Jakes help.

Of course, sooner or later the attraction between those two comes to a boiling point.  Also the past comes knocking and Jake and Chelsea have to decide if they are going to make it work together or not.

I loved it the first time.  Reading it a second and third time only made it better.

For me the interaction between Jake and the kids was hilarious and incredibly emotional at times.  Clearly he was overwhelmed at first, but he stepped up and did surprisingly well as a father figure.

Sustained was one of those feel-good books, that left me warm and giddy.


Sustained – Emma Chase



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 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.
