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?
BREACHING THE CONTRACT was a quick and enjoyable read, and the first book I’ve read from Chantal Fernando. That being said, it is a novella, so it moves really fast and there isn’t much depth to the story or its characters. The story could have benefited from being fleshed out, especially in regards to the two big reveals made towards the end. They had the potential to really bring out your emotions, but because they were skimmed over, it was hard to feel much of anything at all. Also, while this story revolves around two lawyers who work at the same firm, you won’t see any legal action, so if you are hoping to see some legal battles, you will be disappointed.
BREACHING THE CONTRACT is told in Kat’s POV, with the epilogue being told in Tristan’s POV, and it comes with a happy ending for Tristan and Kat. It is the first book in a new series, but it can be read as a stand-alone as each book in the series will be about another couple. From the looks of it, the next book will be a full-length novel and because of that, I would be interested in reading it.
