Disgusted by an ex's wandering eye, contract lawyer Morgan Montgomery endeavors to create the first ever relationship contract, a volatile agreement that, once she is able to get a new boyfriend to sign one, becomes a source of courtroom contention. By the author of Baggage Claim. 50,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster

The author of the Essence bestselling novel Baggage Claim delivers a provocative and richly entertaining new novel about what happens when love and litigation collide.

Morgan Chase, a thirty-four-year-old contracts lawyer, is pushed to her romantic wit's end when she discovers that her boyfriend of nine months, investment banker Marcus Alexander, has been diversifying his "portfolio" with another woman. After a few hours of venting with her girlfriends, and more than a few drinks, Morgan decides that the only way you can guarantee that a man will act right after you've been intimate is if you make him sign a contract before you've been intimate.

That very same night, Morgan heads back to the office to create the first-ever relationship contract -- a legal document full of conditions, consideration, and most important, consequences.

Sparks fly, tempers flare, and emotions hit the fan when the man Morgan finally convinces to sign her contract is caught red-handed with another woman. What follows is an ingeniously plotted and thoroughly entertaining fusion of comedy, romance, and courtroom mayhem.

What happens when love itself is put on trial? One thing's for sure...hell hath no fury like an attorney scorned!

Okay, so I almost gave up on Love on the Dotted Line when Morgan called Marcus after discovering his infidelity. However, I decided to keep reading because honestly, I didn't want to give up that easily on a book just because one of the characters did something that irked me. And I'm glad that I didn't because I literally laughed aloud during the chapters about the trial.

I agree with other reviews about the characters being predictable; but overall, I thought it was a pretty solid novel. As a native of Philly, I also appreciated all of the references to local restaurants like WarmDaddy's and Ishkibibbles. I don't come across many novels set in Philly, so it was nice to read one with a unique storyline filled with a good dose of humor.
