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.



Sustained is my FAVORITE Emma Chase book!  I loved this story. 

Jake and Chelsea’s chance encounter turns into a love so amazing and true you can’t help but root them. I loved every single word!

Serendipity has never been so splendid! Sustained is sweet, sexy, swoony and side-splitting hilarious!

I love Jake Becker!

How to Chaperone a One Direction Concert (Without Killing Someone)
by Jake Becker

1. They sell beer at the concession stand. Drink it responsibly, but definitely drink it. It’s the only thing that gets you through the night.
2. Don’t be that guy acting like he’s having a good time. It won’t make you look “cool” – just @$#!$# creepy.
3. Be ready to catch. Whether it’s because of hyperventilating or the simple sight of One Direction, some girl in your vicinity is going to pass the hell out.
4. Make sure you have extra memory on your phone – because apparently when their phones are filled to capacity with pictures – Hara-kiri will then commence.
5. Earplugs.
6. Earplugs.
7. Earplugs.
8. Park far, far away because then you’ll actually be able to get out of the parking lot when the concert is over. And you’ll risk less damage to your car – these are teenage girl drivers we’re talking about here.
9. Remind yourself that your parents probably couldn’t stand the music you listened to as a kid either. This proves that karma is real and that she is, in fact, a bitch.
