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.

5 Reasons to LOVE Jake Becker

  • He’s ridiculously handsome!
  • He goes through major character growth.
  • Jakes interaction with Chelsea’s nieces & nephews is hysterical.
  • He has a ton of passion. (in all ways. 😉 )
  • He cares even though he’s terrified of real relationships.

I would like to note that I didn’t care for the 1st book in this series, but I decided to continue on with this series because I liked the glimpses of Jake that we got in Overruled.  Even if you have reservations after reading the first book, I definitely recommend picking this one up.
