Publisher's Summary

How hard can it be?

That was the question rolling around Larissa Mason’s mind just before she asked Hollis Hudson to be her fake boyfriend.

It was only supposed to be for five minutes, after all.

Granted, that was also before she felt his hand on the small of her back as he charmed the heck out of her family.

And it was definitely before she saw the football god shirtless. Otherwise, she would’ve had an idea of just how hard some things could be.

It turns out that pretending to be in love with a crazily handsome, somewhat enigmatic, and absolutely unforgettable tight end (that has an amazing tight end) is easy.

Reminding herself that just because opposites attract doesn’t mean they’re forever is much harder.

What they have isn’t love - it’s a relationship pact. Right?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The Relationship Pact is a fun and flirty college sports romance with lots of heart. No cliffhanger.

Fun & Sexy Listen

I loved listening to this story. The narrators brought the characters to life and they made you enjoy it that much more. They sold the fake relationship and made you feel the story. I read the story, but loved hearing it being told to me.

Hollis & Larissa have a story to tell and they are perfect for each other! They are just what the other needs, even though they didn't know it .

Great story and great narration

Adriana Locke is a new to me author, and I was reading this one as part of the Kings of Football series. I was kind of surprised how quickly I got wrapped up in this book, before I knew it I was at 50%. Her characters and the world were immediately believable. I realized there were mentions of characters from other series, but I did not feel left behind, rather curious about the others. This can absolutely be read as a standalone, but I will be venturing down the path of her family series. I really loved the story of Hollis and Larissa, and if their story is any indication, I have a new go to author.

Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton are go to narrators for me, and they once again delivered with this novel!

Low angst romance

I was in the mood for something light without all the unnecessary drama and this was exactly what I was looking for. It was a great story with character growth, funny moments, a couple of steamy moments and a sweet HEA. And you can never go wrong with Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon, they’re 2 of my favorites that I specifically search for.

Hollis & Larissa

Glad I finally got to listen to Hollis and Larissa's story, out of sequential order from the Mason Family Series but like anything that Adriana writes it was great. I loved Teddy Hamilton as Hollis he fit, and Erin just works with any Heroine she portrays. No clues you just need to read or listen for their HEA

Enjoyed This One!

I very much enjoyed this story. I’ve always loved a good “fake” relationship story and this one did not disappoint, especially with Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon doing the narration. This book also had other characters that were fun which helped the story along.

strong characters

I really enjoyed this book more than the other two and I actually have enjoyed it more than the other books I've read by similar genre authors simply because there's not so much cussing that the storyline is inhibited and the sex isn't thrown in every other page. it was a good read and while i honestly I don't think guys actually think things like "her hair shines like molten gold" hollis doesnt wax on like that constantly (crewe did). however, it is nice to fantasize that men actually talk and think this way about the woman they love.

Wow great read/listen

Omg Hollis and Rissa’s story was so good. I could not put it down. Getting to see some people from other stories was so interesting. Lincoln is still a favorite of mine from Adriana Locke and I still love his random check ins in other books like this one. Hollis you can’t help but root for when you hear about his past and his family history. Larissa has such a bad choice in men until Hollis that you can’t but hope he is a good one. I could not put this down and you can only hope that a fake relationship will hopefully become real. I can’t wait for any other books for this Adriana Locke and her series where you can meet and remeet character. Narration also kept me listening and now I want to look for more by these narrators

Love the banter

Ris and Hollis create a relationship pact, but she has no idea he is anti-relationship. Will her heart get broken? Can she change him? Or will the pact end as planned, no harm/no foul.

This is a fake relationship story, but, it ends with so much fun banter. I love the bombshell she drops in the epilogue. "Good things happen" is the best way to describe it. And the bonus epilogue is hilarious. Only three best friends could pull off the witty comments.

And let's not forget Grandma Judy. I love her. I think we should all have one of her in our lives.

Teddy Hamilton was the perfect narrator for Hollis. Brooding and pessimistic, yet wanting so much more. Erin Mallon played Ris very well and the scene where she is giving Hollis what-for for breaking up with her is the best. And, of course, they both played Grandma Judy perfectly.

Another fantastic read!

I haven’t read an Adriana Locke book yet that I didn’t fall madly in love with! I can’t wait for the next one. 💕

Larissa and Holiss's journey to find a soul mate is truly moving. Teddy and Erin did a fantastic job with the narration and I highly recommend this book ❤

enjoyed it

New author for me. Really enjoyed the story. Just the right about of angst with Hollis's backstory. Narrators were fabulous (like always). I will go back and read the first two in this series.

Cute and sexy, with a lot of funny moments too

I loved this book very much. It was cute and sexy, with a lot of funny moments too, and I really liked both characters.

The chemistry between them was amazing. They seemed made for each other right from the beginning. They had an instant connection that went beyond a simple physical attraction. Their relationship developped from cute and fun, to scorching hot, to emotionally intense. I loved it. There was still a little angst, but the grand finale was worth a little pain.

Their relationships with friends and families–or chosen families–were also beautiful. And fun. There was a lot of banter that I enjoyed very much. But also very positive messages about love, support, acceptance.

I didn’t realize it at first, but the story was connected to another book by the author I’ve read before. Just let me tell you, since I didn’t recognized the characters at first, I wanted to read their story. Guess I don’t have to! But that means that even the side characters are compelling, with intriguing stories that you’ll want to explore. Just be prepared to plunge into a whole new world.

I may be biased since both narrators are my favorite, but I thought they did incredibly well with this book. I felt the characters’ emotions–including lust, yep. Narration was fluid and lively. A very good audiobook to listen to.

Brilliant listen, awesome story

Teddy and Erin voices are so good when reading this story I often got lost just listen to them speak and forgetting everything else around me.

The story by Adriana Locke is amazing what starts out as a guy helping a girl out of an awkward situation turns into a friendship (relationship pact) to help each other out during the week between Christmas and New year, but soon turns into so much more that neither of them were expecting. In Larissa eyes Hollis is a typical jock who she has just sworn off dating, but Hollis is a sweet lonely man who is battling against always being left behind after bouncing around in the foster system. In Hollis eyes he is not good enough for Larissa and fights against everything he wants because he has nothing to offer her, but Larissa soon sees the man Hollis is and refuses to be another person who leaves him. Can Hollis find what he always wanted and needed with the help of people he meets in Savannah.

Cute and fun!

I loved this fake relationship story, Mallon and Hamilton truly brought Larissa and Hollis to life. I haven’t read many of the Landry family or Mason family books but I do recognize a few of the other characters and they are also a joy to catch up with. I enjoy sports romances and I’m glad this one did not completely get flooded with just sported talk and games and the like, it actually revolved around the characters and their story. Truly a great listen!

Great story!

I love a good sports romance and, mix it with a fake relationship, and I'm definitely one clicking. Adriana Locke is a great story teller and her characters always have lots of layers and a realness about them. Hollis completely stole my heart, he has such strength but also a vulnerability which really drew me in straight away. Riss is perfect for him and I loved them as a couple. Full of feels but with plenty of heat and fun too, I devoured this book!

Erin and Teddy are great choices for the narrators of this book. They really bring the characters and story alive, I always know I'm in for a treat when I see them listed!

The Relationship Pact - Sweet Fomance!

This is a sweet story between Larissa and Hollis with a focus on the relationships they build along the way (Judy's character was so loveable)!
I love a sport's Fomance and the Narration was greatly done by Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton!
