Review: The Pact by Karina Halle

Review:  The Pact by Karina Halle

The Pact by Karina Halle
available on Amazon

*The Pact is a FULL-LENGTH 
*STANDALONE (not part of a series) 

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 Rating and Review
I saw this book mentioned on another book blog earlier this week and was immediately intrigued.  I can't explain why, but I have this fascination with books where the main characters are friends and realize that they could be so much more.  I went right to Amazon and downloaded the sample and as soon as I read it, I knew I had to have more!  And it did not disappoint!

I loved the friendship between Stephanie and Linden and James, even in the sometimes awkward moments that came about from time to time.  I can just picture Linden telling Stephanie about his idea for a backup plan and James shaking his head at the stupidity of it.    Parts of the story made for some aggravation - particularly Nadine.  I was ready to throttle her more than once at the way she talked to and treated Linden.     

I loved the dirty talk and the steamy sexy times!  Wow!!  Linden is everything that any girl would be lucky to have! 

I even loved the angst.  The things that don't break you definitely make you stronger in the long run and the angst between James and Linden and Steph were a necessary evil in this case.
