The Cover: I think this cover is perfect for the story and setting of the book. It’s sassy but there’s obvious sexual tension which just makes the cover look alive. I love it! A+

Description: 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 hotnew 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?
Overall thoughts: Breaching the Contract is a sweet story about two people who start out not liking one another but end up falling head over heels in love. Honestly it’s one of my favorite romance troupes. But this story is a little different because Tristan is a single dad which is something that is becoming quite popular in the romance book world. But I like it because it’s different and honestly brings something new to a couple’s story I think.
Kat is a bad ass heroine! She’s smart, independent and honestly I adore her. Anyone who is a twenty something or someone who isn’t used to child could relate to her. I really enjoyed Breaching The Contract however I wish it was a longer story because I really loved Tristan and Katerina.
