A knight in tarnished armor is still a knight.

When you’re a defense attorney in Washington, DC, you see firsthand how hard life can be, and that sometimes the only way to survive is to be harder. I, Jake Becker, have a reputation for being cold, callous, and intimidating—and that suits me just fine. In fact, it’s necessary when I’m breaking down a witness on the stand.

Complications don’t work for me—I’m a “need-to-know” type of man. If you’re my client, tell me the basic facts. If you’re my date, stick to what will turn you on. I’m not a therapist or Prince Charming—and I don’t pretend to be.

Then Chelsea McQuaid and her six orphaned nieces and nephews came along and complicated the ever-loving hell out of my life. Now I'm going to Mommy & Me classes, One Direction concerts, the emergency room, and arguing cases in the principal's office.

Chelsea’s too sweet, too innocent, and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be tough, but she’s not. She needs someone to help her, defend her…and the kids.

And that — that, I know how to do.


Such an adorable book! I truly enjoyed this read.  I laughed and had a permanent grin on my face for just about the whole book.

Emma has a gift for writing in the male point of view.  She makes it fun, real, and sexy.  Jake definitely tops the list of panty dropping book boyfriends.  Emma created Jake with only one flaw… he isn’t real.

Chelsea and Jake walk a thin line between love and friendship. Jake landed on Chelsea’s front step through a series of unfortunate incidents and they both will never be the same.  The chemistry is undeniable yet it’s never that easy.

The story was believable and entertaining. While reading this one I definitely expressed my emotions for all to see.  Laughing out loud, audible gasps, and angry groans were just some of the feelings that Emma created within these pages. Another wining series and another must read from Emma.
