The Pact is a FULL-LENGTH
*STANDALONE (not part of a series, no cliffhanger, fully wrapped-up novel)
*”FRIENDS-TO-LOVERS” CONTEMPORARY ADULT ROMANCE
It all started with a pinky swear…
Linden McGregor is tall, rugged, and gunslinger handsome; a helicopter pilot with a Scottish brogue and charm to spare. He’s also one of Stephanie Robson’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as she’s known him.
Beautiful, funny and an ambitious businesswoman (with one hell of an ass), Stephanie Robson is one of Linden McGregor’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as he’s known her.
But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed.
Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them were in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.
It sounded like fun and games at the time but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life.
Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line.
The pact is about to change everything.
Note: due to the dirty talk and sexy times, The Pact is not meant for anyone under the age of 18. All characters in THE PACT are in their thirties, therefore this is NOT a new adult book…even though love can mess you up at any age.
Super cute contemporary romance by Karina Halle on dating into your 30’s. The premise is that two friends make a (drunken) pact that if neither are in a serious relationship at 30 they’d marry each other. What the other doesn’t know is that they are both attracted to each other but afraid to make a move and ruin their friendship. Throw in other current relationships, past relationships, and some Truth or Dare in the mix and you’ve got a steamy, fun-filled and dramatic (good drama) book of friends turned lovers. I love that one of the main premises is that love is both messy and worth fighting for. This is a quick read with a lot of steam – a good way to spend a rainy afternoon.
