Sustained by @EmmaChse

Emma Chase is a new to me author. Sustained was a fun book. The entire book is told in a male point of view. Jake starts off as one of those guys, the ones who want to screw every woman. However, he gets a surprise and has to stop sewing his seed for a little while. Then comes Chelsea and her six kids she's raising after her brother and his wife died.

Jake is instantly attracted to her and from there, he does anything and everything for Chelsea and the 6 kids. He's an attorney, so of course the kids get into lots of trouble that he has to step in and play the lawyer.

As far as the story of this book, I liked it. I enjoyed reading Jake and Chelsea's story. I liked the two of them together and I really liked Jake's protective nature. When the book started, I mentioned earlier that Jake was one of those guys...the ones who swear they will never settle down. For me, Jake did a 180 too fast in the story. He went from a man who just wanted to have sex with women to family man over night. It seemed a little out of character to me, but I didn't let it pull me from the story.

Because, I did in fact, enjoy the story. I found myself picking it up during my busy day, wanting to know how the story would unfold. I would read the author again, for sure.

About the book

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.
