This book is about friendship, love and deadbeat dads. It is about strength, courage and the will to survive in a world that can be unjust.
Her life is turned upside down by the one man who should have protected her from it all.
Emma is a survivor. Her father, who has taken off to avoid paying his debts to a well known drug dealer, has kept her down her entire life and she's learned enough from living in his world to take care of herself, because no one else will.
She finally gets her shot at love when she meets the handsome and protective Braden Holt, only to be forced to turn her back on him to protect him from her father's enemies.
Tragedy strikes and Emma has to decide if she is going to do what she always does, build up walls to shut everyone out, or pick herself up with the help of her friends and the man who loves her.

Emma Chase begins in a very intriguing yet horrifying way. Something horrible has happened to Emma, and she goes to the only place she felt safe, her ex boyfriend's place, where his family owns the bar. Braden sees her again in this horrible state and loses his mind. He's not going to let her keep them apart when he knows she is the one for him. But she has a lot of issues to get through, and he's going to have to take lots and lots of time to see her through this, and fight her every step of the way as well... This book was really good, and not at all what I was expecting. It starts out really crazy, and horrifying. I couldn't believe that happened. It also kind of reminded me of another book I've read the way this one starts. But then it continues on with Emma have lots and lots of issues, and her trying to push Braden away. But Braden is an alpha male, and he has ENOUGH! He put his foot down, and now he's going to fight for her even if that means fighting her for them. This story was really good. It has very interesting characters, and a nice plot line. The only issue I had was it was very confusing at the beginning, and it sometimes keeps up some confusing with the way the author moves on to the future in the book. Other than that it was really good, and we get to meet the other characters in this one will get their own story as well.
