So many of us are HUGE fans of this author’s hilarious “Tangled series“, and she’s just released book #1 of a new and funny sounding romance series. ;)

Michelle: Emma Chase has a way of capturing the voice and spirit of her characters so that you connect with each one, no matter who is offering the narrative. She finds a combination of humor, sexiness, and emotional connection that makes these characters feel so real and makes you want to hug them, f*** them, throttle them, and then hug them again.

Julie O: I absolutely love her writing and she is hilarious. Don’t know where she comes up with some of that stuff. Her take on what men think and say is so spot on.

Agreed! She’s wonderful!! And the blurb of this new one is already making me giggle. It starts the series off with him asking his best friend to help him get the love of his life back (and SHE’S marrying someone else). But of course his best friend, well… she’s got quite a crush on him, too.

About book #1:

A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing—with his southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.

Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.

Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved ten-year-old daughter. Jenny is getting married—to someone who isn’t him.

That’s definitely not part of the plan.


Sofia Santos is a city-raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.

But when Stanton, her “friend with mind-blowing benefits,” begs her for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi, to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. Her head tells her she’s crazy…and her heart says something else entirely.

What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-toting Nana?

Struggle town with this one for me. Not a Stanton or Sophia fan.
Hopefully the rest of the series reverts back to a more loveable Tangled series style…just too many yukky moments that made me cringe more than laugh.
Made me miss Drew and Kate and crew. Sigh.
