Book Review: Breaching the Contract by Chantal Fernando

Well hello sexy lawyers! This was such a fun story and I had a great time reading it. It was a great way to kick of a new series and I’m excited for what’s to come.


Breaching the Contract 

Breaking the Contract (Conflict of Interest #1) by Chantal Fernando 


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?


4 out of 5 stars

This was a quick, fast paced read with a fun story, likable characters, a lot of sweet and a nice amount of sexy. Awesome way to kick of a new series. I totally enjoyed it!

There was a good introduction so you get a great feel for the characters right away and then we're off. I loved Tristan, he’s kind of gruff on the outside but so sweet when you get to know him. I really liked Kat, she was determined and such a hard worker. I like how they meet, the complication of working together they face, and the growing heat and attraction they have. It was really entertaining and I liked how it developed. I really enjoyed Tristan's kids as well and the sweet way they played into everything.

The writing is really good. It’s not super deep but there’s enough substance to get you really invested and rooting for Tristan and Kat. The story is told from Kat’s POV and I liked her voice. I still felt like I knew Tristan however, what he was thinking and how he was feeling with the way the author described him, which was awesome. There was also some drama I didn't see coming that added a nice amount of tension which I enjoyed. Great ending and really good epilogue.

It's definitely a light read with an entertaining vibe and I totally enjoyed it. I liked all the characters that were introduced, loved the romance happening between Tristan and Kat, and am looking forward to more in this series. It might have been short but it was solid and gave me just what I needed... a sweet romance that was sexy and fun!
