Could we possibly have wanted for more? We certainly didn’t expect this amazing offering from the author of a series which has had us enchanted with all her unforgettable characters. Each and every one of them managed to steal our hearts with such an ease that when we talk about Jake, Chelsea, Stanton, Sofia, Brent and Kennedy, it’s as if we've known them for a lifetime. Choosing between these gals’ drop-dead gorgeous partners is like being asked to pick your favourite child. Awful, right? Albeit having a gun put to our heads, we’d have to plead the fifth because there’s no doubt the legal representation would be nothing less than excellent! Shh… no offence to Jake’s best mates who we adore to pieces. Smitten with this guy is an understatement!
"Don't ever leave me. Promise me you'll be with me always. I know it's not a promise you can make.... but do it anyway."
As per usual, the exuberant banter is overflowing and has the right mix of angst and humour. Laugh out loud, we did. Some scenes were also cause for concern. So much so that while we were messaging one another, we had to take a quite a few deep breaths and dry happy-sad tears before carrying on. The reason for our emotional state was simply because as always, Ms Chase not only has a way with words, but also writes a story which comes alive and is effortlessly related to.
"Regan, give me my turn on the Wii or I'm gonna knock you up!''...
"That phrase is going to go over well in kindergarten tomorrow."
Jake is back and still at the helm! Narrated by him in first person, he has a lot to say. Who wouldn't with a household full of rowdy but loveable kids! Faced with everyday problems, his fatherly advice showed us that he is in his element and he wouldn't change it for the world.
"Some guys may try and give you a hard time about using condoms. And as a guy, I'm telling you straight up - sc**w them"...
"I mean don't! Don't sc**w them. Ever."
Mind you, he’s still learning by his mistakes. Taking an issue into his own hands doesn't exactly please his gorgeous wife, Chelsea. Nevertheless, being such a solid team as they are, he quickly realises she’s right and is there to share his predicaments, his joys and his sorrows. We’re sure by now you all have a good idea what makes Jake tick. And ooh boy, in this little gem of a novella he’s at his best. His better half, his one and only love, has a challenge of sorts that can’t be refused. Positive in every way, he handles it with manly gusto in and out of the bedroom magnificently.
"I didn't plan on you, Chelsea. Or them. And for as long as I live, you will be the best thing that ever happened to me."
Why we fell hook, line and sinker this time was meeting up with the gang again. Seeing them together, and we do say ‘seeing’ because this is exactly how we felt, was beyond our wishes. It shone light on how they were getting on and left us sighing a tearful goodbye to these three couples so different but so very connected. Stanton and Sofia won us over in Overruled as did Jake and Chelsea in Sustained. Hmm… our beloved Jake! We've always been enamoured with Brent and Kennedy. Yet interrupted, their heart-rending love story spanning over the years left us with a smile on our faces as did the two previous books. We've savoured these friends’ up and downs, relished their moments of triumph and suffered while they fought to overcome life’s hurdles.
"We can hear you singing One Direction!"
"We're never going to live this one down. Ever."
So we've decided not to say goodbye since we’ll most definitely be rereading this series or even better, listen to them on Audible. Thank you Ms Chase for giving all your Legal Briefs’ fans this extended insight into these outstanding folk. Bravo!
I fell hook, line and sinker for this man in the Legal Briefs series, and I was so happy with how the series had ended (or how I thought it had ended) so then to get another book, even a 100 page one, completely made my day! And it came as no surprise to me that I consumed this book in no time at all.
Emma Chase writes one heck of a story, and her male POV is always on top form, she is the absolute Queen!! I loved being back with the Becker/McQuaids. I think my love for Jake is more than obvious, but I also love the entire gang in which he found his family. I could honestly read about these lot for years to come, and if Emma ever wanted to do a spinoff series about the McQuaid kids growing up, I would absolutely be on board with this!
Sidebarred made the perfect series just that bit more perfect, and I am so thankful we received this gorgeous extra treat to the Legal Briefs. I really hope this isn’t the last we will hear from these characters.
It was funny, sexy, emotional and cute.
If you loved this series as much as I did, you will definitely want to read this short novella.
Top Marks for Emma Chase and the gang.
Sidebarred is not a standalone and must be read after the aforementioned novels, specifically Sustained. Told in the male POV.
