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?
Breaching the Contract is the first book in Chantal Fernando’s Conflict of Interest Series. The series is about a group of sexy lawyers who are very good at what they do in the courtroom and apparently in the bedroom as well. Breaching the Contract focuses on how a new associate at a top law firm handles her attraction to her new boss. Her name is Katerina “Kat” Dawson and she has ambitions of being a high-powered criminal attorney. She gets the opportunity to be mentored by one of the best litigators around named Jaxon Bentley. However, Jaxon suddenly takes leave and Kat is forced to deal with the other partner in the firm, Tristan Channing.
Kat and Tristan initially met outside of the office and had an immediate attraction but didn’t have an opportunity to act on it. Once Tristan becomes Kat’s direct supervisor, they both do everything possible to avoid any close contact. Of course, that doesn’t last long and they eventually end up in between the sheets. Their time in the bedroom is extremely erotic and nothing is left to the imagination. Outside forces quickly put a strain on their relationship but rest assured that they do get their happily ever after. Tristan also has two children that play an integral role in all of this.
While I did like Breaching the Contract, I felt that the conflict that arises was somewhat out of place and it didn’t quite feel genuine. Hopefully, the next book, Seducing the Defendant, will seem less forced.
