Overruled by Emma Chase
Emma Chase has a tough act to follow with Drew Evans. He's a book-boyfriend ALL STAR. Stanton Shaw is a different kind of hero than Drew, but she hits it out of the park. Her male POV is the best in the field. ~ Nelle [April2015]
If you loved Drew Evans, you'll absolutely love Stanton Shaw and his sexy southern charm. This story is a hilarious and sexy version of My Best Friend's Wedding. I was a little annoyed with Stanton at points because he couldn't see what was right in front of his face. But his sweet charm and sexy, dirty mouth made up for his dumb-man-brain moments.

The Legal Briefs Series Reading Order
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?
The Bourbon flows, passions rise, and even the best-laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.
