Book Review: The Pact by Max Monroe

It's official, I'm in love with the Winslow Brothers series and currently, Flynn is my favorite brother. I loved The Pact so much, it had the best humor mixed with so much sweetness and heat (oh the heat!). Be sure to check it out!

Book Review: The Pact by Max Monroe
The Pact (Winslow Brothers #2) by Max Monroe

“I need a ride,” I said to a sexy stranger on a Harley.

Three hours later? A six-foot-tall Marilyn Monroe was officiating our Vegas wedding at the Happy Chapel.

But it’s not love—it’s business—a marriage pact made out of desperation so my career doesn’t go up in flames.

Sure, Flynn Winslow is a hot, broody, mysterious man that women all over the globe would sell their souls to land for real, but I have my eyes on the prize and our marriage arrangement will end in three months with no strings attached.


Or will it all go out the window when I have to move in with Mr. Mysterious and our fake marriage starts to feel remarkably real?

I wish it were as easy as telling myself, Do not fall in love with your fake husband, Daisy, but apparently, when feelings get involved, not everything that happens in Vegas knows how to stay in Vegas.

5 out of 5 stars

The Pact was so freaking entertaining with awesome humor and a great mix of sweet and sexy. I loved learning all about the mysterious Flynn and the outgoing and verbally delightful Daisy. I loved their pact about the fake marriage and watching them fall in love. This was just the best, I loved it all!

Daisy was fantastic. She's a bold spitfire and I loved how she could awkwardly ramble and have this verbal spillage that was so amusing. I loved Flynn. The strong, silent ones always get me. He seemed so secretive and I loved getting to know him. He was so kind and sweet with the biggest heart. I loved Daisy and Flynn meeting from their very first look to the moment she takes his hand and everything really starts. They had so much chemistry and an undeniable connection. I enjoyed learning about Daisy's past and the reason why the wedding pact was taking place. Their relationship had a wonderful build and the heat between them was phenomenal. Beyond the heat, I loved the moments when their real feelings started to shine through and the fake started to become real. There was a lot of emotion involved and it made my heart melt.

There was an excellent cast of characters thanks to their family and friends. The Winslow brothers are a trip and they make me so happy. This is a family I want to hang out with. I love the bonds they have and their crazy moments together. I loved how the women involved embraced Daisy and invited her into the fold.

This was a fun and engaging story that had me hooked the entire time. There was never a time I wanted to put my Kindle down. There were so many well-thought-out scenes that had me smiling and giggling but really pulled at my heartstrings too. This story was totally entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny. I can’t wait for more in the Winslow Brothers series!

There is something about a fake relationship story that just gets me. I love that building tension and heat as feelings come into play. Do you enjoy the fake relationship trope? Let me know.
