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.
REVIEW BY: Gina
I am loving The Legal Briefs series by Emma Chase and Sustained was perfect!!!
It's smart, funny, witty, and Jake is oh soooooo sexy!!!
After a series of events, I was starting to feel really bad for Jake. Nothing was going his way but they say everything happens for a reason. But because of that he meet Chelsea. I adored Chelsea!!! She was so strong, so sweet, caring and compassionate! Then there is Jake...big manwhore, to busy with work to settle down but it only took the right woman to bring him to his knees. I love see Jake's sweet side. I never thought of patience as a sexy characteristic in a person, but Jake's patience totally did it for me. SWOON
I was laughing out loud through out this book! Jake interacting with children...just hilarious!!! I just loved all the banter back and forth. I loved that it was written in Jake's POV. You don't see that too often to it was a nice change. The story was fanatically written and the story line was amazing. There wasn't a lot of hot scenes but I wasn't disappointed. There was so much more to the story that it made up for that.
This is the second book in the Legal Briefs Series, but can be read as a standalone. If you like laugh out loud funny, sweet, and swoonworthy books I highly recommend Sustained and the first book, Overruled.

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.
