27 Dresses meets Bridget Jones’s Diary for the millennial set in Erin Lyon's I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions.
In a world where marriage doesn’t exist—only seven-year contracts—you don’t marry, you sign. You don’t divorce, you breach. And sometimes, you just expire.
Kate is struggling to find her footing. She gave up a career she hated to pursue the law, and now she’s buried in debt and unemployed. At least she’s signed to an amazing guy—hot, sweet, and committed.
Enter the contract killer, the man who pursues only signed women. No commitment, no hassle, all the fun. But Kate has enough fun on her plate… until her partner doesn’t re-up their contract.
After an epic but well-deserved meltdown, Kate gets practical. She accepts a job with her uncle’s law firm, practicing signing law—the one type of law she swore she’d never do. And the contract killer? Now that Kate is single, she’s no longer his type, but he still wants to be friends. Yeah, that’ll work. Kate may be heartbroken, but she’s not impervious to this sexy, smart, and complex man. But hey, it looks like he may not be impervious to her either—signed or not.
Hilariously relatable, with biting wit and charm, The Contract Killers is 27 Dresses meets Bridget Jones’s Diary for the millennial set.

This was such a fun and interesting read. There’s humor, romance, and a ton of confusion for the main character, Kate.
I really liked the aspect of signing contracts. Instead of getting married, you sign a contract to be with someone for 7 years, and you can renew the contract or let it go. I also enjoyed the various ways Kate’s romantic life can go… I mean seriously… Multiple guys fawning over you is pretty awesome. But some of those prospects could complicate things. Kate is witty and fun. She has zero filter when she has a drink in her hand, and she has an amazing best friend.
I love that there’s such a strong sense of friendship and family. Kate is close to her parents, and the scenes when she is with Logek are hilarious. They have that amazing friendship that people earn for.
There’s sooo much I want to squee and theorize about, but I don’t want to ruin the twists and turns Kate’s life takes. When life knocks you down a peg, or two, maybe you should go about things a little differently.
I will warn you… there is a cliffhanger. So if that’s not your thing, wait for the next book to come out. But this book is totally worth the read.
