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.

I Love You* Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions is a fantastic mix of sexy and sweet with lots of fun thrown in for good measure. I normally don't read romance novels, so I honestly wasn't expecting much from this book starting out. I'm definitely glad I gave it a chance though - it surpassed any hopes I may have had. The story is smart, funny, steamy, and an overall great read. I was surprised at how much I connected with the main character, Kate. She's very realistic - complete with flaws, hopes and dreams, problems and so much more. I thought she was a great main character and one that most readers will be able to identify with right away. The author tells the story from Kate's perspective, which was a huge selling point for me. I'm an advocate for first person point of view because of the deeply personal level the reader can get to connect with the narrator. No other writing style allows this, and I've always thought it was one of the best ways to tell a story. This novel was no different, and I believe that I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much if it had been written in any other way.
Every aspect of the book is well done - from the rounded characters to the detailed and believable story line - and everything in between. I loved getting to know Kate and to watch her navigate all life's obstacles and triumphs. The romantic aspects of the book were definitely steamy and kept me on my toes. They weren't overly graphic - which I appreciated. I wanted to read a sexy contemporary romance - not erotica. The author did a great job keeping it just hot enough without overdoing it. One other aspect of the plot I enjoyed was the whole 'contract' concept. There weren't any marriages, instead couples could sign contracts (like a legal agreement) with rules and stipulations to follow. They lasted seven years and would automatically renew unless one of the people involved elected to not renew. There were consequences if someone broke the contract and different proceedings if there were circumstances involved - like children, for example. I really liked the twist these contracts brought to society and to the overall story. It really made the book stand out from other contemporary romances out there. I'd definitely recommend this novel to fans of contemporary romance and readers looking for something a bit different than what they're used to.ERIN LYON is a practicing attorney who spends her free time writing novels about lawyers.
