I can't believe I read this in just one day! Very impressed with myself right now! Lol!"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."
So, I really like Emma Chase's style of writing. It's very realistic and projects emotions very genuinely! I was interested in the storyline throughout despite the cliché plot line!
The relationships in this book are to die for! I love how Stanton's family operates, including the Monroes that is, and I just fell more in love with the characters as I kept reading!
I'm so envious of how Stanton and his pals have this thing going on! It just feels so good to read about gangs of friends like these in books! They're absolutely the best kind of characters to read about!
Overall, this book was a fun read! It had me laughing so hard at some moments and had me cursing at other times! Pretty interested in seeing how the rest of this series plays out!
