Appealed (The Legal Briefs Series, #3) by Emma Chase
When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate - and prized - parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Christian Louboutins.
Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them.
And now he has his sights set on Kennedy.
When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell.
She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore - she’s a DC prosecutor with a long winning streak behind her. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case and she thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own.
But things aren’t exactly working out that way.
Because every fiery exchange has her wondering if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. Each argument and objection only makes him want her more. In the end, Brent and Kennedy may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.
APPEALED is a sexy, humorous romance about first crushes, second chances and the final verdict of the heart.

I really enjoyed this flirty and sexy legal read!! This is actually my one and only read in the Legal Briefs series. (I know, I'm weird)
Brent and Kennedy have been friends their entire lives, best friends really, but grew apart and away from each other eventually.
When they're back in each other's lives, years later, the sparks fly. Fireworks to be exact!! I loved this story. The chemistry between these two is electric. I love how she takes just as much as she dishes out and vise versa. These two were made for each other. There's a couple hiccups along the way, but they find a way to make things work. The story is fun, sweet, sexy and lighthearted. I can't not mention the fact that he has a prosthetic leg and I love that fact! What I mean is, some might consider a prosthetic leg an impairment, but it's not true at all. Brent proves that. He is the quintessential tall, dark and handsome, charming, confident as hell ladies-man! He is the definition of 'book boyfriend'! Amazon US / UK
