Cover Reveal! Overruled, The Legal Briefs #1 by Emma Chase


As a 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 and 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 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.


I spot Jenny and the dark haired man across the grass. From this angle, I’m able to see he’s a few inches shorter than me, thinner, but still in shape. He’s alright looking with a straight nose, deep-set eyes, puffy girly-lips. And he’s got that cleft in his chin like John Travolta.

A hiney-chin.

From this moment on, I’ll forever think of him as Ass Face.

“That him?” Sofia whispers, her eyes trained on the same direction as mine.

“That’s him.” I growl. Like a dog who spots his favorite bone in the jaws of another canine.

“Wow.” She exclaims but quietly. “He’s gorgeous! He looks like he just stepped out of a Calvin Klein ad.”

Frowning I turn to her. “Why would you tell me that?”

She looks back, grinning. “You want me to lie?”

“Shit, yeah I want you to lie.”

She gives Ass Face another once-over. Then covers her eyes. “My God, he’s hideous! I can’t bear to look at him. Move over Quasimodo, Jimmy Dean is in the house.”

I sigh. “Sofia?”

“Yes, Stanton?” She says sweetly.

I lean in, so my lips are just a hair’s breadth from her ear.
“Lie better.”

By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother of two who resides in a small, rural town in New Jersey. By night she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine. 

Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.
