  • Super cute and flirty

    I'll start by saying I am so grateful to Boldwood Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Plus One Pact. I love reading new authors and this was my first Portia MacIntosh book. I downloaded it to my kindle and read it all in the same day, so that should tell you something right there! I absolutely adored MacIntosh's characters, her British quips and turns of phrase, and her sense of humor. Cara is such a relatable, quirky, could be your neighbor/BFF kind of gal that I found it so easy to relax into the book and truly delve into her story. Millsy stumped me for a little bit because the stories weren't being reflected in the man, but Joe is handsome, thoughtful, easy to be with, and truly best friend material! Once the story started fleshing out I was able to join my feelings for Joe/Millsy and it became one of the cutest, sweetest romance books I've read in a long time. It's feel-good without being cheesy or immature. I found myself smiling and chuckling throughout the book, which isn't normal for me. I'm intrigued and plan to read Ruby and Nick's story soon!!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Funny, relatable, and uplifting.

    The Plus One Pact is a witty and romantic story about two people connecting and balancing each other. Cara, the average girl next door, and Millsy, the epitome of beauty and charm. Cara's social calendar was a blank page. She would come home every night for her cat, if not for the fact that she worked from home and did not have one. The dating app kept matching her with all kinds of weirdos, and even they were standing her up. Add to this mess, a resentful aunt, a vindictive cousin, and an obsessive ex-boyfriend. But sometimes, what seems like the end is actually a new beginning. By a stroke of luck, Cara met the gorgeous and friendly Millsy, a guy way out of her league, but willing to be her friend. The book is well written and very amusing. Cara and Millsy are adorably clumsy, and there are some laugh-out-loud moments. I read it all in one day. I just could not stop myself. I love how the story shows that different is good. That what we think we want in a partner is not necessarily what we need in one. If you are in search of a feel-good, lighthearted romantic comedy, look no further. The Plus One Pact is perfect for you. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  • Cute story

    ****The Plus One Pact is a humorous story about two people who band together to get through several months of respective obligations as each other’s plus one. It was supposed to be as friends, but can a man and woman really ignore budding awareness? Fat chance even with all the obstacles placed in their way. This American reader enjoyed the exposure to British slang and humor. The characters are defined and the story moves along nicely. This book was cute and fun and worth a read. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from NetGalley.

  • Predictable, but lots of fun

    I really enjoy friends-to-lovers romance novels and this fits right in. Of course, it’s totally predictable, but if I were to balk at predictability, I’d never read a romance novel, right? Cara is very insecure about her appeal to guys. She meets Joe, or Millsy as he prefers to be called. Millsy is hot and built and she can’t figure out why he’s so friendly, but she accepts his help with a makeover and now she’s a sexy redhead. And they eventually agree to help each other out over the summer by being each other’s “plus one” for family occasions. They make a great team and soon she’s finding out more about Joe and his family as well as his rather mysterious job. People, even her ex and his brother, are not quite what they seem at first. Through it all Joe and Cara find out more about who they really are and what they want out of life. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I received from Netgalley; however, the opinions are my own and I did not receive any compensation for my review.

  • Cute, easy read

    Cute, easy read. Cara is single and looking for someone. After many disastrous dates, she meets Joe (Millsy) at a bar after she had been stood ups. He claims he just wants to be friends and they hit it off. They agree to be each others plus one at the varies social engagements they have coming up. After many adventures together, some disasters at family parties, and a bunch of laughs, they end up in bed together. But can Cara and Millsy be more than friends? The story was simple, light and a fun read. Laughed out loud a few times. My only negative with this book is that at times it seemed to drag on, not really adding anything new to the story. I enjoyed some of the other characters in the book, and would have loved to have them developed more too, like Cara's brother. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
