When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate – and prized – parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Christian Louboutins.

Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them.

And now he has his sights set on Kennedy.
When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell.

She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore – she’s a DC prosecutor with a long winning streak behind her. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case and she thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own.

But things aren’t exactly working out that way.

Because every fiery exchange has her wondering if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. Each argument and objection only makes him want her more. In the end, Brent and Kennedy may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.

APPEALED is a sexy, humorous romance about first crushes, second chances and the final verdict of the heart.

Brent’s first love and childhood best friend returns, and it looks like both of them have a lot of explaining to do. They both had feelings for each other back then, but a lot of things and people got in the way.

I’m going to be honest and say that I was extremely disappointed in Brent when I learned all the things that happened in the past. I understand that he was young, but I couldn’t help but feel hurt right along with Kennedy. Brent had to work extremely hard to regain her trust, and I felt like he had to do it to appease me. It was the only way I would have wanted him to be with Kennedy. I know that makes me a grudge holder, but I don’t care.

I especially loved catching up with Jake and Chelsea. They’re my favorite couple! This book was so funny and I adored the extended epilogue. I hope there’s another book in this series, because I’m not ready for it to be over.
