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 installment in Chantal Fernando's new contemporary romance series! Some people have placed it into the "erotic" category, and while I do think it had some pretty intense sex scenes, it didn't really make it all the way to erotic territory for me. I enjoyed the fast pace of the novel, but I often felt like something was missing. The characters relationship progressed very quickly, and I really wanted a little bit more of a slow burning romance. 

All in all, the novel was entertaining, witty, and held my attention easily. I liked the length of the novella and it definitely left me wanting more. I look forward to more from Fernando in the rest of the series. Thank you to NetGalley and Pocket Star for sharing this novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 3.5/5
