However, what I didn't like about the story is that I felt the characters were too hard on each other and could of been much more understanding with one another feelings. Most of the time, the type of friendship that was described didn't match with some of the harsh words that was shared. And though I get the "words said in anger" bit, it still didn't sit well with me.
But all in all its a good read.
Folks, seriously, this is one of the best, most "real" and all around awesome romances I've read. All the characters were fantastic. Nothing contrived, annoying or fake about any of them. Stephanie, Linden, James, Kayla, Nicola - heck, even the parents were all people who felt authentic, like actual people who could exist in real life.
The daily life struggles and career struggles, too, were portrayed honestly and without treacly sentiment.
This was a tour de force novel in the romance genre. I rarely give five stars, but "The Pact" fully deserved every one.
There were no tropes of misunderstandings, and neither MC acted immature or like out and out jerks. Also, except for hiding their true feelings for each other, there were no hidden secrets between the h and H <SPOILER> (well, okay, Linden broke up with Steph without telling her the true reason, but it didn't last too long). <END SPOILER> Hot damn - for the most part, adults in this novel actually acted like adults! So refreshing!
This book had it all - wonderful characters, fantastic narrative and all told at a great pace. Oh yes, the naughty parts were delicious as well!
Now that being said, I still wanted to smack both these characters for not getting it together sooner. I saw reviews where people were upset about the characters not getting together until the middle, but I was fine with it. You got to see the build up between them. To see the sexual tension. The fact that I predicted the plot line to the story was why I gave it 4 stars. It was a bit predictable
When the news was delivered to Stephanie about Linden's plane accident, I didn't feel anything. I mean, I had that 'I hope he's okay' kind of reaction, but I wasn't devastated by the news, not even before I found our that he'd survived the incident. I am the kind of person that likes to get so deeply immersed in a book that I feel attached to the characters. I want to feel real experiences and care for the characters. I can't say that I cared about any of them. Don't get me wrong, the plot was great, and there was passion with Stephanie and Linden, but I feel that this whole book would have been better if the author had developed the characters a bit more. The only characters emotion(s) I could truly feel was James; and while I didn't exactly like his character because he was a jealous A-whole, a negative Nancy, a Debbie Downer, a hater, whatever you want to call him, was the character that was most developed. Call me crazy, but that's the way I interpreted it all.
All in all, the book was good. It could have been better. It was interesting and kept me turning the pages to find out more.
