Would you stake your life on your marriage?
Newlyweds Jake and Alice are offered a mysterious wedding gift – membership of a club which promises its couples will never divorce.
Signing The Pact seems the start to a perfect marriage.
Until one of them breaks the rules.
The marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare.
Because The Pact is for life.
And its members will do anything to make sure no one leaves . . .
As soon as I read the book description for this book I knew I had to read it.
As much as we all enter marriage in the hope that it will last a life time, there are just no guarantees in this world. It really piqued my interest and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in.
I could to a certain extent get behind the reasoning of The Pact. Our lives are so busy now a days that I think it is good to be reminded of the little things that can be so important on making a marriage work. In a way I could see more marriages working if people did some of the things that were in the rules. What I didn’t agree with, is what happens when you don’t follow the rules.
Jake and Alice are quite opposite in a lot of ways but they are both in love and are certainly in it for the long haul. I did feel sorry for them as they are trying to do things by the book, but the more that they find out about the pact, the more they fear for their lives. That alone puts pressure on their marriage.
I don’t want to go into the story to much, especially what The Pact does when people don’t obey their rules. Boy did it make me squirm though. It’s like when you know something is going to happen and you don’t want to watch but you just can’t not as you have to follow it through.
The Marriage Pact was an engrossing read that I literally could not put down. Full of tension and suspense, I really could not get enough. Great read and will certainly be reading more by the author.
My thanks to Netgalley and Michael Joseph Penguin for an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
