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?
An awesome quick read that really peaked my interest for the series to come. This is a well done story and I really liked all the characters. Very little angst, office romance, single dad with some very cute kids are all the things that made this a great story. New associate Katerina Dawson literally runs into one of the most attractive men she's ever met. There was a spark of attraction that would have been fun to pursue if he hadn't walked into her new boss's office just minutes later. Yes, Tristan Channing is a partner in the firm she's just starting with. Just her luck. Yet that spark just won't go out.
Definitely a book I recommend to everyone.
This was a great mid to low angst novella. Very fast pace featuring an office romance that starts out as enemies to lovers.
Kat is fresh out of law school and was hired by Tristan's partner for their firm. Tristan is a single dad with kids and treats Kat like personal assistant instead of an associate. His admiration for her grows and things change quickly between them.
This is a very safe read with no cheating between MC's or violence in the story. I loved the storyline but did feel it ended abruptly. I'm looking forward to more in the series. We got to see enough of Jaxon and Hunter to be intrigued for their own books.
