Synopsis

Apr-24Join Jake & Chelsea, Stanton & Sofia, Brent & Kennedy as they navigate the hilarious and heartwarming hurdles of love, life and the law in this final addition to the Legal Briefs Series.

There was a time when Jake Becker had it all together. He was controlled, driven, ruthless—in and out of the courtroom.

Then, six irresistible orphans and their heartbreakingly beautiful aunt crashed into his perfectly ordered life. They changed everything. They changed him. Now he’s a husband, an upstanding member of society, a father figure—a family man.

And he’s pretty damn good at it.

Sure, he has to referee sibling smackdowns, re-learn algebra, ensure his clients stay of jail, and keep his wife happy—but it finally feels like he’s got it together again….

So, of course something has to screw it all up. It’s huge. Life-changing. Kind of terrifying.

And it will be the most amazing, perfect thing he’ll ever do.

My Review

Sometimes I need the kind of story that delights, that makes me smile and feel all warm and gooey inside—that’s exactly what Sidebarred delivered. It was the perfect mix of sexy, sweet, funny and feels. While the novella focuses primarily on Jake and Chelsea, it wraps up the entire series by allowing us to glimpse into everyone’s happily ever after.

Jake and Chelsea were my favorite. Theirs was both a heartbreaking and hopeful story—six kids who’d lost their parents, who’d find comfort and love under the care of their aunt Chelsea. When lawyer Jake Becker walked into their lives and fell in love with Chelsea, their lives fell into place in a way no one ever expected.

“We’ve been married for about two years and there hasn’t been a single morning when I didn’t wake up with a smile tugging at my lips. Not one fucking time. Because she’s beside me – half of on top of me – and the six little shits we love more than anything are tucked safely away upstairs.”

Life for them is as crazy as one would think, but I loved seeing just how in love and in sync these two were. When a surprise disrupts their own rhythm of crazy, it takes them all a little off course, but in the end, with the best possible outcome.

Overall, if you loved the series, especially Sustained, you will love every page of this must-read, feel-good novella.
