Review 'The Pact' by Karina Halle

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.

My Review:

A view months ago I read a couple of reviews written about ‘The Pact’ by Karina Halle. The reviews were all very positive and this sounded like a book I would definitely enjoy. So when there was a Sale on Amazon I decided to buy the book. And finally the time came to start reading it.

In ‘The Pact’ we meet Stephanie and Linden. Stephanie and Linden have been best friends for years, but there’s always been a certain attraction between the two. An attraction they never acted on, because of their friendship with each other, and with their other best friend James. One drunken night when Stephanie and Linden are both twenty five years old, they make a pact. If their single and there are both thirty years old, they will marry each other. The pact first sounded like a joke. But how closer Stephanie and Linden come to their thirty’s, the pact is always on their mind and changes everything.

From the beginning ‘The Pact’ is a book you can easily get lost in. The writing is easy to follow, funny and there is immediately this palpable attraction between the two main characters, which makes you want to keep reading. This book is written from both Stephanie and Linden’s point of view. This makes this book even more fun if you ask me. I love reading both their thoughts throughout this book.

This book was definitely a very fun read. I loved both main characters and I loved how their friendship developed. Their friendship was very pure and I was rooting for them from the first page on.
This book is definitely a romantic one. But it also includes sex and there is some serious dirty talk. It didn’t bother me, and I felt like this fitted the story and the characters perfectly, but if you’re not into reading dirty talk, this book is not one for you.

What I loved most about this book was that the characters where in their thirties. It was definitely fun to read about characters in their thirties and not in their mid-twenties like most books. I really enjoyed this book and I’m so glad I bought it all those weeks ago.
