The Pact

The PactThe Pact by Karina Halle
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really want to give this book a 1, but I won’t because that’s not fair. I did somewhat enjoy it. It was easy to read and mostly entertaining. But I had 2 major peeves that won’t let me rate it over a 2.

1. When Linden and Stephanie finally get together the book because 30% plot and 70% sex. At first it was hot, but I got really sick of the dirty talk super fast. It stopped being sexy and kind of became gross. I started skimming over it because it made me feel slimy. I was not a fan. I could have enjoyed this in moderation, but every scene that had both Linden and Steph in it also had a gross sex scene and it was total overkill.

2. DEUS EX MACHINA

So when Linden has seemly fucked everything up beyond all repair OF COURSE something terrible happens to make it all go away. Because of course if a tragedy occurs no one has to face the consequences of their actions and we can all live happily ever after without extensive couples therapy. Right?
