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 .

Fantastic story!💜

This story has everything. Charming, romantic, funny and plenty of family drama.
Wonderful characters with some fun banter between best friends.
There were also some heart wrenching moments that had me in tears.
The narration was absolutely brilliant. Teddy Hamilton & Erin Mallon nailed their performances.
Well done everyone!
This is book 3 with an HEA and can be read as a standalone.

Super Loved Hollis and Larissa's story

Why'd I start at book 3? Ugh, if the first couple books in this series are this good then I'm in for a treat. I really enjoyed Hollis and Larissa's story made me so happy! The stars aligned!

Here's what I loved:
Larissa is such a wonderful FMC. I loved how self-aware she is. She open and communicative. Knowing exactly what she wants in life, from her career to the type of man she wants she forged ahead to get it.
My poor, sweet, broken Hollis. Gah, why are the damaged ones so freaking hot. I loved his story so much. After finding out his back story, he deserved this brilliant love story.
The audiobook narration is fanstastic! Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon are elite!
Don't even get me started on the cover because its fantastic!
Found family AND fake dating are two of my favorites, so its not surprising that I loved The Relationship Pact so much.

Overall, another fantastic read from this great author.

Fake dating, sports romance, set in the Lockiverse

Thanks so much to Adriana Locke for the audio copy to listen to and review!! I’ve been excited to read Larissa (cousin to the Mason family) and Hollis’s (Paige Carmichael’s brother) story and this book definitely lived up to my expectations and deserves all 5 stars! Fake dating, sports romance, small town (ish) are just some of the tropes in this book!

This book follows Hollis, a college football player visiting Savannah, GA to accept an award from Lincoln Landry (Landry family series) for his charity work. When Larissa needs a fake boyfriend to get her ex to leave her alone, Hollis is the perfect candidate. During his time in Savannah, they enter into a “relationship pact” (lol) to be each other’s fake date to a couple of events (Lincoln Landry’s house, a fundraising dinner Larissa is roped into) but something decidedly less fake is growing between the two.

Listening to this as an audiobook was such a good experience. The narrators and story were amazing, and I was hooked immediately. It also made walking my dog in the cooling weather much more bearable because at least I had this audiobook to look forward to. I loved this book so much and now am probably gonna go ahead and reread the Mason family series again since every time they popped up in the book, I was hit with nostalgia! Seriously- go read/listen to this book now!!

The Relationship Pact

So much fun and super swoony! I absolutely loved listening to this. The narrators bring even more to the story and made me fall even harder for these characters. Adriana always writes characters that I fall in love with and this was no different. Hollis is definitely on my book boyfriends list. This was a great set of stories and I am definitely left smiling after reading this. I can't wait for more from Adriana and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

Highly enjoyed this fake dating story

The Relationship Pact is book #3 in the Kings of Football series. Each book is a different kind of pact that brings an interesting story between the MC’s. Hollis and Larissa never expected their fake dating pact to turn into something so long lasting. They were brought into each other’s lives when they needed someone the most. Well written love story. I enjoyed their banter and chemistry. Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon did a great job portraying both characters.

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!

I love Adriana’s writing style

I absolutely love how Adriana merges these families.
The storyline is entwined perfectly.
It’s a lovely way to keep in touch with past characters. This is a very heartfelt, emotional book with lovely likable characters. A fantastic performance from both Erin and Teddy.

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!
