The Pact by Karina Halle

23844390It 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.

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 are in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.

It sounds like fun and games 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.

What a sweet love story! Perfect for Valentine’s Day.

“I’d give up everything for you.” ❤ Swoon!!! Linden is Book Boyfriend material for sure! Who doesn’t want a man to say this to them?  Swoon.  Be still my fluttering heart – or maybe its aFib.

James, Steph, and Linden are friends. They have been friends for a while. James and Steph even dated for a heartbeat. But that ended and now they are just friends.

Linden always had his eyes on Steph. She was perfection in his eyes. So he comes up with a pact if they aren’t in a serious relationship by the time they are 30, Steph and he will get married. Win-win right? Time goes by, Steph is trying on different guys and Linden is trying out different girls. One weekend, they all converge on a cabin and from there Steph and Linden are free falling. James can get over the fact that he loves Steph and that Linden always GETS everything he wants. James plays the pity me card and destroys Linden and Steph out of selfishness.

What about the pact? What about the time apart? Does it make the heart grow fonder? Or will the distance push them further apart?

This is a great romantic story. It has its ups and downs. The characters are totally relatable. James out of the three was the most annoying and jerkish, yet was a great character. I knew what to expect from him because he was such a brooder. There were parts of the book where I was annoyed with Steph and Linden and how they were reacting to the situation at hand. Overall I liked the book, loved the HEA.
