The PactThe Pact by Karina Halle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads
 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.

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.

REVIEW
Yup another great book by Karina Halle!


I finally saw a book which touched the every day problems of 20 to 30 years old people. Linden and Stephanie are these two heroes. They begin with a funny act; they make a pact in which they will marry each other by the time they turn thirty. But what happens when they come to realize that they do have feelings for each other, apart from friendship?

Stephanie is the first POV. She is sweet, funny with deep thoughts about her future and her dreams. As the book progress we see her transform from an outgoing woman into an adult with more thoughts about her closest people and soon she realizes that Linden is more than a simple friend. She is also afraid about how this part will affect their friendship.

Linden, as the second POV, is Scottish, pilot and sexy. What more can I say? His moments on the book are the one I laughed and cried the most. Especially since I didn't expect the last part close to the end of the book.

All the characters on the book struggle, love and hate, cry and become stronger through their mistekes. It's a deep emotional book and one of Karina's best ones, after "Love in Spanish."
