    Fast paced with lots of laughs!

    I've been looking forward to Emma Chase's new series for sometime. Her writing is witty, funny, and yet still has the emotional pull I'm always looking. I was hoping to fall in love with these new characters they way I did with those from her Tangled series and I did. And I've got to say this story really reminded me of "My Best Friend's Wedding," an iconic movie, but with a bunch of twists to make it a different story. I will admit to being torn about my feelings about Stanton and Sofia. I liked them for the most part but there were moments when I wanted to grab them by the shoulders and shake them because I didn't understand the logic behind their actions. For some successful hotshot lawyers they sure did a lot of thinking with their body parts as opposed to using logic when it came to making decisions about their personal lives. Of course I'm making them sound horrible and they weren't. They were just trying to figure out what it was they needed as opposed to wanted. It was very obvious from the beginning they gave off lots of sparks whenever they got close to one another. I was definitely fanning myself in some of the scenes the two of them were in together. I've got to say though, I understood Stanton's shock at what was happening at home. He'd always thought things would stay the same and when they didn't it took him a while to adjust to the new reality. I've also got to say how much I loved Stanton and Jenny's families. Stanton and Jenny both have crazy siblings, but it's clear that they love each other. And Jenny's Nana is just wonderful! She's kooky yet strong. I also loved Presley, Stanton and Jenny's daughter. She's seriously smart, adorable, and wise beyond her years. I loved seeing her and Stanton with each other. I also loved meeting Stanton's friends and there was a particular friend who made me squeal with happiness when he made an appearance. Emma Chase has written another great story. There are lots of laughs, emotions, and realizations that happen over the course of this book. It's fast paced story and the pages just flew by. I'm really looking forward to seeing Brent and Jake possibly finding their happily ever afters. I'm already looking forward to more shenanigans, laughter, and tears!

    Emma Chase!

    Overruled is the first installment in Emma Chase's adult contemporary romance series titled The Legal Briefs. Despite the title, this is not a law-centered story. There are characters in this book who are lawyers and a few use legal terms in jest while talking with each other about non-work related matters which added a bit of cleverness in my opinion. Also, Drew Evans, our favorite lawyer from Tangled makes a few cameos in person and by name! In Overruled, I loved how the story starts out with complex characters in interesting and heartfelt situations. But I quickly lost any respect or heartstrings I had for the hero Stanton Shaw. I personally didn't find him very likable. Despite that, I did enjoy this book overall. It was sexy, funny at times, and I really did want the characters to be happy. I could see how confusing the conflict in this story must be for them. If you have historically enjoyed Emma Chase, then be sure to consider this series. My favorite quote: “All the things we don’t say in front of children to preserve their innocence, the words we spell, the actions we hide so they don’t copy our bad habits. Like the way my father used to smoke behind the barn, out of view. But we could still smell it on him. They don’t listen to what we say—they look at how we say it, picking up on the undercurrent of emotion like a sixth sense. And they just know.”
