My rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐

A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.

Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.

Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract — fiancée instead of PA.

What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?


That’s what happens.

Can the power of love really change a person?

Will they survive the contract?

What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

My thoughts…

Richard doesn't make partner at his firm and immediately looks for other employment. An opportunity comes along to work for another company, but the company values family and honesty, something Richard isn’t familiar with. Richard wants this job badly, but his reputation precedes him, and they probably wouldn’t hire him. The only way to convince his future employer that he has changed is to be engaged to a sweet down to earth woman, and the only candidate is Katy, his PA, that he doesn’t like. He thinks Katy is plain, clumsy and a doormat. Now he’s going to have to beg her to help him, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make it work.

Katharine’s boss is horrible, he is a mean selfish man and always ready to insult her. She is kind and compassionate, I just wanted to hug her. Katy is easy to relate to with her insecurities and fears. Katy spends a large portion of her pay check paying for the care of the only person who took care of her and loved her as a child. With the care of Katy's aunt becoming even more expensive and desperate for the money that Richard will pay her, she reluctantly agrees to move in with him and play part of a loving fiancée.

As predicted emotions come to surface, a surprise to Richard who thought he could never care for Katy. It was a pleasure to watch Richard go from a jerk to a man in love and very protective of Katy. I enjoyed The Contract.

Happy Reading -J
