Overruled by Emma Chase Blog Tour and Review

By: Emma Chase
Release Date: April 28, 2015

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.

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.



Shannon’s Review
This book begins with a big oh sh*t moment. I mean the first page is a big moment in Stanton’s and Jenny’s life. It was like a big WOW moment. As I got over the shock of that I begin reading more and started to really not like Stanton. It was kind of hard not to like him but then again he was pissing me off.
Let’s take a look back on Stanton’s life. He was raised in Mississippi, which I thoroughly appreciated considering I am a southern girl myself, and he had great ambitions for his life. He wanted to be a lawyer and be successful. He had a hiccup, a big hiccup, but he still made it through to his dream.
Jenny on the other hand was stuck in at home raising their child. She did however fulfil her dream it just took longer than it should. Jenny is a great mom and a great woman. She has her head on straight but has a man who is only there when he can be.
Now these two have arrangements with their messed up relationship. That was the part when I got pissed. Seriously I wanted to jump in front of Stanton with a hand on my hip and pointing him in the chest with my other hand letting him have it.
As I read more and got very emotional attached to these two I started seeing a side of both of them that made me believe they were doing what they were supposed to. Although I didn’t like it. This book really shows growing up on both of their parts. I fell in love with the both of them. This is a great coming of age book that I couldn’t put down.

I recommend this book for the writing, the relationships, the laughter, and the greatness of the book in itself. I am giving this book 5 hearts.
