Happy release day – SUSTAINED by Emma Chase
My favorite Emma Chase book to date. LOVED IT!
The opening of this book caught my attention. It isn’t something we normally see in our romance books because it’s more reality than it is sexy. I was drawn in and wanted to know how the author was going to handle the subject matter. Fortunately for the character that situation resolves early in the book but it leaves him making some lifestyle changes.
Emma Chase knows how to write the male pov.
I don’t know how she does it but I love Jake even more than I loved Drew from her Twisted series. Jake is ‘harsh, cynical, brutally honest, yes – but never sappy.’ Reading the story from his pov was EXCELLENT. He’s met his match with Chelsea who’s kind hearted and strong-mind. She gave up her life to keep her six nieces and nephews from becoming orphans after their parents were killed two months prior in a car accident.
Sweet and Salty
Mixing a ‘Mother Teresa’ with a defense attorney gives you that hard to put down flavor of something extraordinary. I didn’t want SUSTAINED to end. The overall chemistry between the couple and the six kids kept me captivated.
”HI!” the two-year-old replies with a deceptively sweet smile.
The six kids ranging from baby to teen years had me running the gamut of emotions from heartbreak to laughing. Ms. Chase nailed the kids and their mannerisms and behaviors. The two year old and her one word of “Hi” was hilarious. There are books where I think why did the author create ‘so/so’ character because they added nothing to the story. This is not the case with these children – each one had a distinctive voice and part in the story.
I’m seriously impressed with how entertaining Sustained was from the start to the end.
