New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns with a brand new series about a brigade of lawyers who, despite being bad boys at heart, always end up just on the right side of the law.
Katerina Dawson knows exactly what she wants from life. And as the new associate at the top law firm in the city, she’s ready to live out her dreams of becoming a criminal lawyer. But going on coffee runs and babysitting kids during the day was definitely not what she had in mind. She knows that anyone else would kill to be in her shoes, but she has to draw the line somewhere. That’s easier said than done, though, when Kat has to confront her handsome boss…
Tristan Channing and Jaxon Bentley run a successful law firm together and the two partners couldn’t be busier right now. When Jaxon suddenly takes a leave of absence, Tristan begrudgingly assumes responsibility of the new associate, the hot new associate, who has curves for days. Needing to keep his distance from her, Tristan sends Kat on needless errands and has her doing work even an intern wouldn’t touch, like picking up his kids. But his plan backfires when he sees his children grow attached to Kat and sees her getting comfortable in his home. It triggers something deep within him, and it feels right to have her there. Will Tristan be able to keep his work and personal lives separate, or will he find that his heart holds the final verdict?
Wow, I seriously didn’t expect to devour this book as quickly as I did. I had just come off a semi dark read and this was just absolutely wanted I needed to cleanse by pallet. I’ve read all of Fernando’s Wind Dragon books so I wasn’t really sure how Breaching the contract was going to go. I’m so happy to say that I really enjoyed it.
Kat has worked hard to get where she is so when she lands an associate lawyer job at one of the most prestigious law firms there is, she couldn’t be more determined to one day make partner. As she starts her job, she’s on cloud nine. Her boss is amazing and she loves his teaching style. But then a family emergency leaves Kat with a new boss. A sexy, brooding boss who gives her the most mundane tasks that have absolutely nothing to do with the law. She wants to hate him but she’s drawn to him.
Tristan’s reputation precedes him. Everyone thinks he’s tough as nails, which he is. But not many get to see what a great guy he actually is. In an attempt to keep Kat away from him, he gives her all those tasks and really pisses her off. Of course, she’s irresistible and once they start spending more and more time together, he can’t deny his attraction to her.
What I liked the most about this story was watching Kat discover what a great guy Tristan really is. I’m pretty sure woman’s ovaries are going to explode when they see what an amazing Dad he is. Ovaries exploded, heart melted and mind blow. That’s what Tristan will do to you.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Breaching the Contract is the perfect escape to warm your heart and cleanse your soul. Give it a try, you’ll be happy that you did.
