Sidebarred is the latest book from Emma Chase’s Legal Briefs series. A sweet novella that takes readers back to one of the series most loveable couples – Jake and Chelsea. If you are not familiar with the series, Jake met Chelsea and her 6 nieces and nephews in the second book, Sustained. You would think a 30 something year old guy meeting the guardian of a bunch of misfits would be a turnoff – think again. Jake took them all under his wing and reminded them all of what it meant to be a family.
In Sidebarred, two years have passed and both Jake and Chelsea have somehow managed to raise six kids while miraculously juggling their high-profile careers. Everything is great, the kids are happy, Jake and Chelsea are happy, what more could they want? Just when you think they have it all, one life changing event throws everything into chaos. Jake and Chelsea can handle anything, what’s one more drama? 🙂
When I was reminded of all that the family have gone through, I admit I shed a tear. And the scene where big tough Jake was braiding one of the little ones hair – it was so cute!! Jake and Chelsea would move heaven and earth to make those kids happy, and they would do whatever it took to see each other happy and healthy swell …even when life throws a few unexpected hurdles. Happily ever afters are something that every couple has to work at, and Jake and Chelsea are no different.
Bestselling author Emma Chase has done it again with her story of love, life and all that comes in-between. Fans of the series will be pleased to get an update on all the couples and the adorable McQuaid children. If you are looking for a book that has strong characters, a heartwarming storyline and a kick ass dad that loves his kids and wife to the end of the universe and back – then this is it. I highly recommend Emma’s Legal Brief Series. Check out the links below and find out what all the excitement is about. You won’t be disappointed!

Amazon Premise –
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.
