I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.
Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.
Utter. Perfection. Appealed was a smart story written in the funny, in-your-face male POV I adore from Emma Chase while still including genuine emotion, touching moments and a solid plot. Plus it was a second chance romance. How can it not be good, right?
“What if the reason I’ve never let myself fall in love with a woman is because I didn’t have anything to give? Because I’d already given my heart to her when we were seventeen years old? And all these years…I’ve just been waiting for her to come back to me with it.”
I always have a ball reading Emma Chase’s books but there was something about Brent and Kennedy that just clicked for me. Maybe it was the whole in-love-with-the-girl-next-door vibe. Or maybe it was Brent’s awesome attitude after overcoming the loss of his leg. Perhaps it was the bit of a geeky side he hid under the suave attorney persona. Or maybe it was how Kennedy didn’t let Brent get away with anything. (And I mean anything!) But I’m thinking it was all of those parts combined that created the magic that was Appealed.
