***REVIEW *** Sidebarred by Emma Chase

by Emma Chase
(The Legal Briefs 3.5)
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Published Date: April 24, 2016


There was a time when Jake Becker had it all together. He was controlled, driven, ruthless—in and out of the courtroom.

Then, six irresistible orphans and their heartbreakingly beautiful aunt crashed into his perfectly ordered life. They changed everything. They changed him. Now he’s a husband, an upstanding member of society, a father figure—a family man. And he’s pretty damn good at it.

Sure, he has to referee sibling smackdowns, re-learn algebra, ensure his clients stay of jail, and keep his wife happy—but it finally feels like he’s got it together again....

So, of course something has to screw it all up. It’s huge. Life-changing. Kind of terrifying.

And it will be the most amazing, perfect thing he’ll ever do.

My Review

Sidebarred is the culmination of the three book Legal Briefs series. It's a novella that follows up with the three couples we met in each previous book: Stanton and Sofia, Brent and Kennedy but mainly focusing on Jake and Chelsea. Taking place a couple years after the series ended, Sidebarred shows life for the three couples and how Jake and Chelsea are adjusting to instant parenthood and married life. 

This short story kept a smile on my face as I was able to reminisce with some of my favorite characters as well as watch them overcome new challenges. Jake and the rest of the crew were hilarious as usual and getting to see just these hard nosed lawyers turn into big ol' softies had me giggling and swooning at the same time. 

Emma Chase did a phenominal job once again of portraying the male point of view as well as giving a true depiction of life with so many little ones running around. I adored the fact that we also got a peak way into the future. This was seriously one of the best extended epilogues I've read in a while and it makes me want to start all over again from the beginning.

About the Author

Emma Chase lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children and two misbehaving (but really cute) dogs. 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.
