Review: Overruled by Emma Chase


A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing—with his southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.
Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.
Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved ten-year-old daughter. Jenny is getting married—to someone who isn’t him.
That’s definitely not part of the plan.
Sofia Santos is a city-raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.
But when Stanton, her “friend with mind-blowing benefits,” begs her for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi, to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. Her head tells her she’s crazy…and her heart says something else entirely.
What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-toting Nana?
The Bourbon flows, passions rise, and even the best-laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.

4 Star Review by Allison East

I love Emma Chase, and she is a fantastic author. Tangled was such a great series and I had such high hopes for this series- the Legal Briefs, and she did not disappoint.

Stanton Shaw- sigh. I loved him, hardcore. What a freaking god of a book boyfriend. He is a DC defense attorney- and he definitely takes his job seriously. I mean holy hell; they call him the Jury Charmer for a damn reason. He could defend Hannibal Lector and make him seem like a puppy dog. Those green eyes, I would love to be caught in them, and it would make it difficult for me to disagree with a word he says. Then one day, he gets a wedding invitation- which shouldn't be enough to send him off the deep end- but it does. His high school sweetheart, the mother of his ten year old daughter is getting married. And she obviously isn't  getting married to him. He claims it doesn't matter, but you can tell- he's definitely hurt.

Enter Sofia Santos- loving the double S names- she wants to become a criminal defense attorney and not just any defense attorney- a bad ass one at that. She is fierce and she has a plan she must stick to, no time for relationships, no time at all. But then Stanton bats his little green eyes and whips out his southern drawl to ask for a favor. They are friends with ] benefits, for sure- but he wants her help to win back Jenny, his high school sweetheart by going to the wedding. She may be crazy, but in the end she goes.

I really loved this story and I can't wait for more in the series, and I know by the way it was set up there will be more- please say there is more, Emma???? This was well thought out, well written and thoroughly enjoyed!
