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 hotnew 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?
Breaching the Contract is the story of new attorney, Kat, and a partner of the law firm, Tristan.
Tristan is a sexy, stoic, single dad. Kat is an intelligent, sharp woman. The two ooze chemistry from their first meet, and it grows from there.
I really enjoyed Breaching the Contract. The story was engaging, and I couldn’t put it down. It was very evenly paced until the final chapters, when it felt very rushed and it felt more like the book just stopped than had an actual ending. The storyline was fabulous, the characters were well developed.
Up until the final chapters, this book was a 5 star read. The ending felt too rushed and the conflict felt more like drama than actual conflict. The conflict would have made for great dialogue and insight into both main characters. It left me a bit unsatisfied, as I wanted to see the characters work through it, rather than be told of the outcome.
