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.

OMG I loved this book!!! Once I started reading it I completely devoured it!!! I loved Jake, Chelsea and all the kiddos. To me, the kids completely made the story. I loved seeing Jake fall to their charm!! You will laugh, you will cry, your heart will melt and I can guarantee you will also fall in love with this story and these characters. There was a few times I wanted to shake the crap out of Jake but I'm so glad he opened his eyes before it was to late. 

This was the first book I read in The Legal Brief series but it def won't be my last and just in case your wondering...each is a standalone with different characters although you will def want to read the other books as well bc I can't wait to read Stanton and Sophia's story!!
