Audiobook Review: The Christmas Pact by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward | About That Story
The Christmas Pact by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Eggnog. Check. Roaring fire. Check. Hot romance audiobook. Check!

Riley Kennedy’s emails keep getting crossed with her male colleague, Kennedy Riley. The infuriating man forwards them along with his annoying commentary and unsolicited advice. At least she never has to see him in person, since they work in different locations…until they come face to face at the office holiday party.

As luck would have it, Kennedy turns out to be outrageously handsome…though still a jerk. Yet somehow he’s able to charm her out on the dance floor—and convince her to participate in his crazy scheme: he’ll go home with Riley for a Christmas party and pretend to be her boyfriend, if Riley agrees to be his date to a wedding. It sounds easy enough. Little by little, however, the act they’re putting on starts to feel like so much more than a Christmas pact—and Riley’s about to learn there’s more to Kennedy than she ever imagined.

Romance audiobook dream team Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward join forces again to deliver an engaging, funny, and sexy story that will make listeners laugh while it sets their hearts racing. Narrated by the double audio act of Andi Arndt (inducted into The Audible Narrator Hall of Fame in 2017) and Sebastian York, this sizzling novella will heat up the holidays…all year long.

Please note this Audible Original will be included in Audible Escape on January 5, 2020.

5 out of 5 stars

The Christmas Pact was so entertaining! I'm pretty sure I had a smile on my face the entire time! It was fast-paced and super fun with these charming characters that were oh so sweet. I had a blast listening to it!

I loved how Riley Kennedy and Kennedy Riley knew each other and them meeting in real life for the first time was awesome. There was a nice bit of antagonism happening and some seriously great banter, I thought the dialogue was well done. I loved the fake dating aspect and the unique situation it created. I loved Riley and Kennedy helping each other out and getting to know one another. There was such a fun vibe happening that I really enjoyed. They had a fantastic attraction as well and I really liked the build as things unfold, histories are learned, and feelings grow. There were so many witty scenes happening that had me chuckling. I felt like I was laughing and smiling my way through.

This was a light, non-taxing story that moves at a good clip. I loved the narrators and how the lines were delivered. Sebastian York has a deep, rich voice I always love and Andi Arndt is one of my favorite female narrators and I always enjoy the inflections in her voice. I listened to this while making treats and it was just what I needed. I love a great feel-good story and this was an awesome one indeed.

Sweet, funny, and entertaining! This story was a holiday treat!
