New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns with BREACHING THE CONTRACT, book one in a brand new series—The Conflict of Interest 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?

5 pencil skirted and power suited stars for BREACHING THE CONTRACT!
When Katerina Dawson goes to work for the law firm of Bentley & Channing, she's absolutely thrilled – she's waited her whole life for this opportunity and she can't wait to show off her newly earned skills. But when her boss gets sick and she has to work for the firm's other partner, Tristan Channing, the level of the man's condescension is stunning. She was THE top of her law class, now she's playing nanny and barista for him? UGH!! But soon, Tristan isn't just seeing her as the newest law associate, he's starting to see her as a woman, and she likes it. A lot. His career is established, but hers is just getting started. Is she making the biggest mistake of her career getting involved with her boss?
I absolutely love me some Chantal Fernando, and this first novella in the Conflicts of Interest
series, BREACHING THE CONTRACT, was fabulous! I'm such a huge fan of her Wind Dragons MC
series that I wasn't sure if she'd be able to make the transition to a decidedly lighter, ah, career choice, but she did it and she did it well. The chemistry between Kat and Tristan was immediate and palpable, and the sex was muy caliente, but the best part was the aww-inducing relationship that developed between Kat and Tristan's kids. So sweet! Not so sweet? This little nugget of yum:
He puts it down with a grin and then turns to me. "You look beautiful today."
"Thank you," I replied, hand rising to my cheeks. "I have no idea what we're doing here, Tristan."
"Well, we're going to go to court today and kick ass, and then after that I'm going to take you home with me, and we're going to have dinner with the kids. And when they fall asleep, I'm going to take you into my room and go down on you until you're screaming my name."
I open my mouth and then close it. "Did you just say that?"
I purse my lips and stand. "Fine, but I want to sit on your face."
I ignore the laughter I hear on my way out.
Sooooo hawt. My only beef with BREACHING THE CONTRACT is that it's only 112 pages long! I want more!!!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
