*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.

Foxy’s Review:

It all started with a pinky swear…


THE PACT is a friends to lovers storyline with a few bumps along the way. Three best friends, 2 guys and a girl, started hanging out in their early twenties. A marriage pact is formed on Linden and Stephanie’s 25th birthday that if either of them haven’t gotten serious with anyone by the time they’re thirty they will marry each other.

Sounds easy enough, right? But throw in their other friend, James, who had first dated Steph back in their early twenties and you get FRUSTRATION. James isn’t a supporter of this “pact” and with each passing year he causes angst as it gets closer to their pending 30th birthday.

I ended up pulling out my ‘junk punching gif’ for Linden. I haven’t used that gif since I read about Will Cooper in 2012. Linden made me want to hurt him and beyond that I lost trust in him. When I finished The Pact I ranted to my husband about what happened and he asked me to stop talking about it. *lol* I guess he didn’t find it as “newsworthy” as I did. Luckily, I have my goodread friends to discuss this book with. It’s nice to hear everyone’s opinions on certain situations that happened in this book.

Ms. Halle is one of my favorite authors. I love her writing style and the emotions she is able to make me feel while I read her books. She’s my most read author and I appreciate that even though this isn’t a five star,for me, I was still pulled into the story and rode the rollercoaster. The range that Ms. Halle writes romance books is impressive….from horror to contemporary. She has a vast audience because she appeals to all kinds of readers. If you haven’t tried her books take a look at everything she has to offer -> list of Ms. Halle’s books.
