Breaching 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?

Yes to everything about this story! It is short and sweet, which I find that I really enjoyed for it being the first book in a new series. 

Kat is the newbie right out of law school working for Tristan's law firm. At first she doesn't work directly under him until Jaxon is suddenly gone, and what was a job she loves turns into one she's becoming to hate. Kat is a go-getter though, she won't give up even though she's doing things she didn't sign up for and I love that about her. She's sweet to the kids even though she doesn't necessarily want to be their nanny, and is so nice to Tristan even when he acts like a jerk for no reason. But of course there are reasons and Kat uses her all of her great skills to uncover what's behind his hard exterior. Tristan turns into such a perfect gentleman too, and I love how he warms up to Kat!

I loved the way the story quickly progressed, it's filled with the perfect amount of tension and so much chemistry! Fernando was able to make me fall in love with every single character in the span of 110 pages, and I'm going crazy for more. Jaxon of course has piqued my curiosity and I'm so glad his book is next! Fernando has started The Conflict of Interest Series with a bang! 

4/5 Fangs
