A Bookworm Review by Ana
The Marriage Pact
I give this book 5 stars!
I’m still shaking. I was so not prepared for this…
Have a look at the blurb:
Ryan Walters and Jackie Bowen became instantaneous friends during their wild and free years of college. He, the rugged, yet all-American football player from a stable family fell hard for Jackie, the exuberant, spontaneous girl from a broken home who lived and loved life to the fullest. Too young to commit and wary of damaging the unique bond they shared, the friends to lovers make a pact promising to find one another again at the age of thirty and marry—if not already committed. Years apart, after much growth and change, the two best friends seek one another out. In college, neither Jackie or Ryan could possibly know that every relationship to come would fall short of the one they’d shared together all those years ago. When the two meet again, love and chemistry soar beyond their wildest dreams and they agree to make good on their promise. But a second chance at love can be fickle and fleeting. The Marriage Pact is a story about letting go and loving with your whole heart no matter the circumstance—or how much it hurts. The Marriage Pact, the second book in The Viral Series following Missed Connection, by romance authors K. Larsen and Mara White is based on a heartbreaking viral Reddit post. Each book is a stand alone story.
And here we go again… I could get used to this life you know… I could read all day and I would be so so happy. But we can’t always get what we want right?? We just can’t. Boohoo. That’s life.
Should I be scared to read a book that was written by two authors? Of course not, lol. Have you done it? If you didn’t you totally should.
K. Larsen and Mara White’s writting is something else. If you haven’t read in the cover that this book had been written by two authors you wouldn’t believe, mainly because their writing is amazing. This book is raw, intense. You can see their passion in every word. Trust me on this.
The Marriage Pact explores the lifes of Jackie and Ryan.
Jackie came from a poor family. She lived on a farm on a small town. She helped raise her sisters and would do anything to avoid them to miss something. She’s a dreamer and she refuses to quit. She wants to do great things.
Ryan is a Football player and a very cocky one. His life should be only booze, girls and parties but sometimes things can change.
When they met each other in college they become true friends. Friends that help and support each other, no matter what, with no questions. They had a vibe going on between them but they were young to assume a relationship so they made a pact, that they would get back together when they become 30 and then get married.
What will happen? Will they be faithful to their pact? Can they stay together?
When I finished this book I was a mess. My heart was heavy and my head was hurting so bad. I can’t say why but get ready for a rollercoaster of emotions. This book has all, love, friendship, loyalty, family. It had amazing and happy moments as well as sad and lonely ones. I can say that this book will be forever imprinted on my mind and heart.
We will find some pretty hot scenes as well, oh boy… because a good book needs to have hot stuff.
These two authors had manged to get under my skin in a way that I don’t think that they can get away so easily. Their writing is powerful, intense and they managed to write about a theme that everyone knows they should be aware of it but sometimes they simply ignore it. I know that my life will not be the same.
