Well this book was a complete and pleasant surprise! Erin Lyon's debut is a unique and fresh twist on the "non-committal playboy who falls for the girl" storyline. It's addictive and sexy with a mix of humor! I could NOT put it down!

The novel is set in a sort of alternative version of our modern world where people don't get married; they sign contracts instead. The contracts run for 7 years and at the end, you can either re-up or cancel the contract and move on. Instead of divorces, there are b

Nunca tinha ouvido falar deste livro e nem desta autora e como a Topseller é das editoras que mais leio por gostar muito do género de livros que publicam, fiquei curiosa em descobrir este livro. É bom ler um livro sem qualquer expectativa, sem saber nenhuma opinião e gostei bastante. É um romance engraçado onde não há casamentos mas mesmo assim as pessoas metem-se em muitas confusões românticas... :)
Fiquei curiosa em ler o segundo e claro que torço pela Kate com o Adam :P

This was sooo good! I just finished and I'm giddy and... really desperate. I need that second book!

I gave up my blog a little over a year ago and this may be the first time that I actually regret it. I wish I had a larger audience to share my thoughts. Contemporary romance readers need to get on this!

I didn't know what I was getting into when I started. I went in blind and was only going on the recommendation of my friend Megan, who loved it. She doesn't love everything so I had a feeling that t

I really don't what to write about this book. It wasn't bright but on the other hand I liked it, almost!

This a world that marriage doesn't exist anymore. People sign 7 years contacts with each other and if both agree they renew their contracts, otherwise it's the end whether you like it or not.
Kate's contract with Jonathan is coming to its end but they have a perfect relationship and she is sure it's being renewed automatically,she is now focused on finding a job at a law firm as a newly graduat

In this book, the first in the Contract Killers series, the world is the same as today, but with one big difference; there is no such thing as marriage, instead people “sign” with someone. This is basically the same as marriage only it has an end date; 7 years. After the 7 years is up you can either part ways or reup the contract for another 7 years.

Kate is at the end of her 7 years with Jonathan, the love of her life, and assumes they are going to reup…until he tells her otherwise. No

So I loved this book. Go figure considering it was a really random addition to my shelf.

I liked the fact the characters were in their thirties and the way they lived was pretty authentic; texting, working, drinking, talking about boys (but not to death like nothing else in the world mattered). Also the fact that there is no such thing as marriage, only contracts. (They last for 7 years, whereby you can re-up or call it quits. If you breach you pay) It was a nice little subtle twist to the wo

Um livro que se lê num ápice e que fala sobre amor. As vezes pensamos que queremos o que temos mas quando surge uma “oportunidade” para ver para além do que temos, achamos que queremos outra coisa mas as vezes pode ser complicado e arriscado. Não acredito que tenho que esperar para o segundo livro sair para descobrir o que aconteceu, quero mais e mais e rápido!

I don't want to say to say this book was a disappointment but.. well.

It is likely I may be dropping spoilers the way a stripper drops her panties. Which is to say : casually. You've been warned.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE YOU SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS is not only a great premise, with a great title, and with some really entertaining and funny moments but.. it was just too much. And not enough. But I'm going to break it down into my major issues to try and keep this short.

Wow. 2 Rom-Coms in a row for me!

Did I read that this was a debut? I'm impressed! I couldn't put it down and now I'm anxious to see how Kate's predicament plays itself out. The characters were all very well developed with distinguishable personality traits (and flaws) that endeared them all to me.....well, maybe not Tony. I can't wait to jump into book 2.

What an entertaining read!

Kate's life is royally screwed up--in the most entertaining way possible--but she powers through it all with the aid of good friend Logek, copious amounts of alcohol, and "contract killer" or two to help her through the breakup of her long-term relationship. Misery never hurt so good!

All I can say is, bring on the next one!

2.5/3

I'm conflicted about this one. If giving a letter grade I would say a C.
The writing felt a bit rough and some of the characterizations very shallow. Yet, I read it in a day and am a bit curious as to how it will all pan out.
Also, the book ends on a CH.

So much fun! A fresh take on contemporary romance. Eager for the next book. (It IS a series, not standalone.)

This was a very enjoyable and entertaining read. While I could not relate at all to the female lead (Kate), it says something about the writing that I was intrigued and invested to see what happens. The writing was witty and so engaging that it makes this book a fast read. I really enjoyed all the side characters too. From her parents, to the three potential love interests, to her friends; all were memorable. The one major flaw is that it's a two part series and book one ends with no co

Fun, fast, easy read! A book hasn't consumed me like this in a long time.

Warning, it does end in a cliffhanger, but luckily the sequel is already out.

I can't wait to read the rest of this story!

I'm going to call this book a happy accident because that's what reading I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions (boy that's a mouthful) was. I didn't mean to read it but after the sneak peek I took, I couldn't stop. I should've known better but no regrets cause I fully enjoyed what I read.

Kate is a funny enough main character. She hasn't had the best of luck with her professional life but when her perfect personal life does a 180, her whole world basically gets upended. Kate is

I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions was a fun, fast and unique read. The concept behind the book was different and not done before which is what intrigued me. This book came highly recommended from my friend Megan from Reading Books Like a Boss. And while I enjoyed aspects of the story, I was left at the end with a feeling of being left hanging.

Kate is in a 7 year "contract" with Jonathan until the day that he decides not to re-up the contract. Left devastated, Kate opens up

NOPE.

First off, I had no idea this would end in a cliffhanger!

The whole premise of this book is that relationships are based on "contracts" rather than marriages, yet this is never actually explained at any point in this book.

There's a love quadrangle, for lack of a better term. It's ridiculous. I don't want my heroine dating three men at the same time unless they're all sleeping together TBQH! And it's not that I think it's wrong for a single woman to date multiple men--even if one of them is

Ugh, that ending! Thank goodness I went with my gut and avoided this book for a year until the second one was available... making people wait that long has to be some sort of cruel & unusual punishment!

I really loved this one! It definitely reminded me of Can I See You Again by Allison Morgan. I really liked the concept of this alternate reality. It was fun, emotional & gave me the butterflies!

To be continued... ?!?!?! What!! Very light and fun. Glad there will be another book because I'm enjoying the story, but I'm unhappy I have to wait for it now.

Erin -- I see you read our reviews. WRITE FAST! All of that law stuff taking up your time, that can wait. :)

Thank goodness my great librarian told me this was a cliff hanger last year so I waited to read until second book was out.

Erin Lyon graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English and then worked in broadcast television for ten years before going to law school. She is now a practicing attorney and blames all of the people in her life for not trying to talk her out of the whole “becoming a lawyer” thing (except for her brother who, to be fair, did say, "Really?").

“Jonathan wants to come here and try to pick me up. Not pick me up like a ride pick me up—like a take me home and screw me pick me up.”

“Yeah—I got your meaning. And?”

“I don’t know.”

“Katie! He’s messing you up!” When Logek gets annoyed, she talks with her hands, and they were waving around a lot right now.

“True story.”

“He thinks he can have it both ways. He doesn’t want the commitment, but he still wants you.”

“Absolutely right. But…”

“But?”

“But if I’m thinking about having meaningless sex tonight—couldn’t it be with him?”

Logek grunted and pulled out her phone and started typing. Curious. Then she turned her screen to me: mean·ing·less [mee-ning-lis] adjective without meaning, significance, purpose, or value; purposeless; insignificant.

Unbelievable. Bitch pulled up the definition.

“Now, doll, which part of that do you think would apply if you went home with Jonathan tonight?”

I scowled at her. She deserved it. Using all that common sense and bullshit.

“I rest my case,” she said, folding her arms across her chest.

“Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine.” Because one “fine” would not have sufficed.”

I’m the equivalent of a talking house cat.” 1 likes
