Breaching the Contract by Chantal Fernando **Review**

Breaching the Contract (Conflict of Interest, #1)

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?

This book was a quick paced and a quick read. I was able to read it in just a few hours. This is the first book I have read by this author. I am now on the second book in this series and am looking forward to reading the other two! The first book is all about Kat and Tristan.The other main and supporting characters are introduced as well but this book quickly become about their relationship and development. As much as I enjoyed the story line and the two big twists I didn't see coming (I won't share as they are spoilers), I wasn't a fan of how quickly their relationship turned sexual. For me, there wasn't really a chance for the reader to feel the sexual tension build before they got together. There were definite sweet moments that brought a tenderness to the story. All in all, a sweet, spicy, and quick read that I enjoyed very much. Like I said, I am on the second book, but I am taking my time with it (no easy task!) as I don't have the other two books yet!
