I haven't seen her in three years. 

I haven't talked to her since the kiss. 

So why am I on a plane, flying across the world to spend a week with her in Germany? 

One word: Pops. 

My life’s a mess. 

My possible football career is hanging on by a thread. 

I'm driving the roads of Germany in honor of Pops with the one girl I can never have. 

And I’m sharing a bed with her, the girl I've measured everyone else up to, while desperately trying to not to touch her.

Friends to Lovers is my favorite trope! I loved that this book mostly takes place on a trip to Germany, listening to the details of all of the places, especially the Christmas Markets just added this trip as a wish list vacation for me. The story line with the grandfather's road trip plans and letter was so much fun and emotional at the same time. Crew & Hazel were very real for me, the way they bantered and acted even after they became lovers was realistic and felt natural to me! I really enjoyed this story line so much and the HEA was exactly what I needed.

The narration was good. I enjoyed both narrators, I really like Kelsey's voice for all characters and Tim's male voice is yummy.

Sweet, Funny and Emotional Journey

Crew has been a little lost over the last few years and losing his grandfather over the summer messed with his performance enough his career in professional football is on the line. But can an epic holiday in Germany planned by his grandfather as one of his last acts, really be the answer that sets him back on his right path?

Hazel has had a rough life and found her purpose on Crew’s family farm working with his grandfather. She spent summers with Crew growing up and they were best friends. Until that summer she gave in and kissed him... then he ran and wouldn’t talk to her. She lost her friend over that act, and now she’s lost his grandfather. A man who’s wisdom, compassion and mentor-ship has meant the world to her. Her head is spinning as she wonders what will happen to the farm, to her future, and she’s now on this journey with Crew and a set of mystery envelopes providing direction and instruction.

Can these two find themselves on this trip while feeling the presence of the man they both loved in this, his final gift to them? Can they rekindle their friendship, mend the broken bond and move forward?

I was so moved by this story. It was funny and heartbreaking at the same time. I felt the raw emotion of these two receiving words and directions and wisdom from Pops beyond the grave. It makes me want to see all these places and experience the Romantic Road for myself.

Narrators Tim Page and Kelsey Navarro were amazing. The range of emotion from the comedic moments (we didn’t start the fire and pants-less cherub musicians) to the ones that choked me up and made me cry (Christmas Eve) was incredible. They brought this story to life and swept me away.

A second chance at friendship and first at love

I loved this story of romance that never got off the ground, and now finally has a chance to bloom!

Hazel and Crew were childhood friends, but Crew has been somewhat lost the last few years as college football has dominated his life. He was used to spending summers with his Grandpa on the family farm in the town where Hazel lived, and spending time with her was some of his favorite time. They were the best of friends. Until they weren't, and Crew just stopped showing up.

Now, his Grandpa has passed away, and he's gifted Crew and Hazel a holiday trip to Germany, to help them find each other again. They get to know each other again, talk about their hopes and dreams, and just reconnect in a way that they couldn't when they were younger.

This book is about so much more than Hazel and Crew's relationship. It's about feeling lost, questioning what you've wanted all along, and finding solace someplace that you thought was off-limits. It's about finding yourself and finding love at the same time, and about forgiving yourself for drifting apart.

The narration by Tim Paige and Kelsey Navarro was so well done. There is a lot of emotion in this book, but also a lot of humor, and Tim and Kelsey capture both so perfectly.

Pops knows best

Crew and Hazel have pretty much grown up together having spent their summers as kids together. They are best friends. But, after Crew stops coming home, his grandfather's last reqest sends him and Hazel on an adventure in an effort to revive their friendship and then some.

The Romantic Pact is fun and sweet. The adventures these two go on are heartwarming and helps them break down barriers preventing them from possibly having a relationship beyond friendship.

The narration is pretty good. I really loved Kelsey Navarro in her role as Hazel.

A sweet and funny friends to lovers story!

The Romantic Pact is the second book in the Kings of Football series but can be read standalone. Meghan Quinn writes a funny, romantic friends to lovers story with the Romantic Pact. I adored the setting and scenery in Germany. I loved the scenes in the Christmas markets and overall magic of the trip to Germany. Hazel and Crew are longtime friends. They have lost touched but after the death of Crew's grandfather whom he and Hazel call Pops he thrusts them back together unbeknownst to each other. Hazel is an independent funny girl. She is smart and witty and full of joy. Crew is focused and driven in his football career but has recently lost something inside himself since the death of Pops. I adored Pops. He was such a lovely man to arrange all that he did for Hazel and Crew to reconnect after his death. The story is filled with Meghan's signature wit, banter and humor but this one goes a little further on the emotional side and I really connected with these characters and all they were feeling. There is some conflict and indecision that I didn't love but in the end I loved the overall outcome and that beautiful epilogue. Kelsey Navarro and Tim Paige do an incredible job telling this story. They tell the story with equal amounts of passion and emotion to bring these characters to life with their animated voices.

childhood friends

His family kinda took her in each summer. Crew and Hazel are best friends growing up but drift apart. It takes a death of his grandfather and a trip he planned for them to reconnect. A wonderful journey to Germany over Christmas. It's a wonderful story. Love it so much. The narrators were a great choice and they did a wonderful job.

German Christmas road trip

I really loved this book. I knew I would, there are very few books that Meghan Quinn does that I don't like. But what I liked so much was the premise of this. The grandpa to the hero and the surrogate grandpa to the heroine sends them post death on a trip that goes through his past and brings these old best friends back together again.
I love the whole idea of this. It give everyone the closure they need to with the pops that they lost. Someone who knew love so well and wanted to see that for everyone he loved. Plus getting to adventure through Germany at Christmas time. The adventures and planning that was done. I want to go on this exact trip now. The thought put in. It would make even a non romantic fall in love.
I love that they are able to do this together and to discover each other as adults. This story truly focuses on that love is the cure to everything. If you focus on the love the rest will fall in place.
It proves that everyone has that one person that you can truly be yourself with.
The sex was so hot, especially the dry humping scenes. Gave me all the little chair wiggles.
Kelsey Navarro and Tim Paige both do an amazing job in this. This is the best narration I have heard from Kelsey so far. But when you have a great character like Hazel it isn't hard to do.

Beautiful Story! 💕

Another great story by Meghan Quinn! The Romantic Pact was a beautiful story about two people finding their way back to each other. This is friends to lovers romance, full of funny and sweet moments that take you on an emotional journey from beginning to end. This book was wonderful and made me want to experience the Romantic Road for myself. Crew and Hazel were perfect for each other! I loved the witty banter between the two, the gorgeous places they were to, and the letters that Pops left them were so beautiful, it had me ugly crying at the end. This was the perfect story! It was even better with the narration by Tim Paige and Kelsey Navarro. They were phenomenal and really brought out all the emotions for Crew and Hazel. They did an amazing job and I’m so glad I was able to experience this for myself.

5 OUT OF 5 SWEET STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

5 OUT OF 5 SWEET STARS

I LOVED The Romantic Pact!!

Meghan has delivered a Gem again!

This book was a friends to lovers romance.
The story takes place after the death of Crew’s pops and his decision to reunite old friends on a tour of Germany, with some surprises thrown in along the way to make Crew and Hazel realise that they are meant to be together much longer than the festive period.
Having been friends since being children they would spend summers together at the farm Pops owned but with Crew’s choice of career taking him away for four years they have lost touch and their ideas of what they each want from life appear to have changed. Crew is heading into his final year and losing Pops has made him think about the future, so when he returns home he finds out about that Pops has planned a trip for him to visit Germany however Pops has arranged for him to have a companion on this trip in the form of his childhood friend Hazel stirring up feelings, thoughts and conversations about the past, present and also what the future holds.
I loved this story so much! Exploring true friendship between two people and how it can turn into something much more is always a winner for me.
It was so beautifully written with all the worries of life thrown in to untangle throughout the story. It will have you on the edge of your seat rooting for them both hoping that the romantic plan turns out well.

The Narration was amazing and brought to life the characters of Crew and Hazel so perfectly. What a partnership Tim Paige and Kelsey Navarro are I can’t wait to hear them together again.

A road trip full of romance!

I loved the narration for this audiobook from Tim Paige and Kelsey Navarro. I loved the Ebook but their narration brought the story to life even more and I was wrapped up completely in Crew and Hazel's story all over again. It's absolutely an audiobook I will listen to again and again

Crew is the Hero here and after losing his Pops, a man he loved and respected massively, he is losing his way and his focus on getting picked for the draft to the NHL. When he finds out that Pops planned a road trip to Germany before he passed with a mystery travel companion he knows he needs to go. Hazel the heroine is Crew's mystery travel partner, as kids they spent their summer's together on Pops' farm and were inseparable until one kiss caused a 3 year rift in their friendship.

I loved the format of the novel, our Hero and heroine following letters from Pops to repair their friendship and maybe help Crew and Hazel to see that they could be more to each other. The backbone of the book is the idea of family in whatever format it takes, the sentimentality of the story was beautifully written. The romance begins to build as Hazel and Crew get to know each other again while exploring the quaint towns, foods and activities that Pops set up for them. Before you know it this book feels like a comfy holiday romance that you can nestle down under a blanket for a cosy read that warms your heart. Mixed into Hazel and Crew's story is humour, steam, a classic Meghan Quinn dry hump or two and of course some unique festive ornaments, everyone of us will want in our homes.

The romantic Pact for me told a story of two very likable characters that lost their way, but through an old friendship and a love of a great man they both respected and lost they help each other grieve and heal. When life comes crashing back to reality after the road trip I had a lump in my throat for several chapters feeling that aching despair that Hazel was feeling as she feels her life as she knows it is slipping away through her fingers, I truly felt her heartache as she fears everything that makes her who she is will be gone. An angsty build up culminates to a satisfying happy ending and another brilliant book to Meghan's repertoire.

4.5 Amazing Stars

In true Meghan Quinn style, The Romantic Pact ticks all the boxes for a good romcom. However it is so much more than your average romcom.

On a journey through Germany with Crew and Hazel you will laugh out loud, mourn, find love and so much more. I think I would even go so far as to say, its my favourite Meghan Quinn to date!

Tim Paige and Kelsey Navarro took me from the start to end of this book, 'seeing' and 'feeling' Pops and every single experience he planned for this young couple with such finesse, its as if they lived in my head. A perfect duo to bring Crew and Hazel to life.

Hazel and Crew!

While Crew chased his dream of playing football the one thing he always thought he would have is time. Time to repair the relationship with the girl he never forgot and time to spend time with his grandfather and now that he has passed away all he has are memories. His grandfather must have had a bigger plan as he now finds himself heading to Germany on the trip his grandfather planned with the girl he has never forgotten.

As children Hazel and Crew were best friends until the kiss. Since then, Hazel has been ghosted by the boy she gave her heart to and she doesn’t know why. Spending a week with him in Germany will either allow them to right the wrongs of the past or break her heart for a second time.

The characters are captivating, their interactions are humorous and hot, but this story is about so much more. It is a life lesson bout valuing what and who is important in your life and appreciating every day and every memory that you share. The narrators managed to bring out all the emotion, humor and romance of the characters and the story.

A wonderful, romantic, rollercoaster ride

Flipping heck Meghan Quinn! What are you doing to me? I was a wreck. In the best possible way. A sweet, at times funny, story about family, friendship and finding your soulmate. Do you believe in soulmates? I sure as George Washington do (you need to read the book to understand that little snippet), and after reading this captivating romance, it solidifies everything I always believed about true love. A week long road trip with the best friend you’ve not seen in 3 years will either make you stronger together or rip you apart. It took the words of a dying man to make them see what was there all along. Wonderful characters, a little bit blind to what’s right in front of them, and definitely stubborn at times, they needed guidance, and thankfully they had it in the written word. Wonderful writing, an emotional storyline, with a little of the Meghan Quinn humour I love. The audio version gets a full five stars from me. Tim Paige is the perfect Crew and Kelsey Navarro the perfect Hazel. I love these narrators together, they have genuine chemistry that comes across in the story, making me really believe.

Definitely wiggle-worthy!! 🔥

The Romantic Pact by Meghan Quinn is exactly what Quinn's writing is all about... the characters are charming, sweet and fun, the story is witty and hilarious while still being touching and bringing heart-warming moments. Quinn's got skills! I was completely tickled to gifure out who this story was about. If you've read The Mother Road than you are in for a huge treat! It was a delight surprise to see some familiar characters in The Romantic Pact that I didn't realize was coming. Woops,  I almost finished my review without talking about the heat level. It would have been a travesty if I accidentally skipped that. Havel and Crew were like lava... leaving every thing scorched in their wake! They were definitely wiggle-worthy listening material!


The narrators really brought a pulse to Hazel and Crew. Tim Paige and Kelsey Navarro had their work cut out for them. I mean,  the emotions and antics in this story have a wide range and they just poured everything into the book. The way both Paige and Navarro were able to portray their grief and struggling to heel was beautiful and might have had me wiping my eyes several times. But they also showed a playfulness that you could hear in their voices. There was a fondness that the characters felt for each other that I felt in the narration as well as the words in the story. This is my favorite type of audiobook... where it's felt in the emotions of the narrators and the words of the story. I don't think anything could have made this better in my opinion... a full 5 stars from me!

Go Pop’s!!!!

3.5 stars for the book
4 stars for audiobook narration
I was provided with an audiobook copy by Little Dog Press for an honest review

This was a sweet slow burn friends to lovers romance about childhood besties Crew and Hazel. Crew’s amazing Pop’s arranges the two to go on a perfect adventure to Germany after his death. The thing is, the two haven’t spoken to each other since a near kissed broke them apart 4 years earlier.

The wit and banter between to two flowed with ease and I loved how open Hazel was with Crew, like that girl is not shy lol. The storyline surrounding Pop’s and the trip was beautiful and If you have been to Germany you will probably connect better with the story but as I haven’t i found it difficult getting lost in all the scenery descriptions, places they visit, foods and different drinks they had etc. But I adored the story of pop’s and could feel every emotion on how much they loved him and he loved them, giving them one last push to reconciliation from beyond the grave....go pop’s!!👏

Outstanding Story & Listen🎧 A Mesmerizing Delight!

I loved everything about this audiobook, from Meghan Quinn’s wonderful writing style to the fabulous characters and storylines she created to the perfectly casted narration performed by the mega talented Kelsey Navarro and Tim Paige. This story grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it the entire book. The characters are likable, easy to relate to and connect with, I loved how much they grew by the end of the story. I also loved the natural flow to the story and the descriptive details that brought you in right along side the characters allowing you to see what they saw and feel what they felt, we’re given a glimpse of what they are thinking as well. I adored the two lead characters, Crew and Hannah, I have to give a shout out to Pops, Crew’s Grandfather, who masterminded their trip. Crew and Hannah met at Pops’ farm, they became good friends but they fell out of touch when Crew went to college and stopped replying to her emails. Pops did not give up on them and before his death he planned for these two to spend time together on a trip to Germany, a nostalgia trip, since that was where he spent time with his wife years ago. Crew was not only heartbroken when Pops died he was angry that he did not spend more time with him instead of focusing on football and making pro. Hazel did not have much growing up, her saving grace was Pops, he took her under his wing showed her the ropes and taught her everything she needed to know about running the farm and then some. Her life is in limbo right now not knowing what is going to happen to the farm now that Pops is gone. But she agreed to go on the trip he planned for her and her former best friend, Crew. Crew was surprised to see Hazel when she joined him on the plane, Hazel is a true sport about meeting him again, not going off on him asking why he stopped calling her. Clearly these two were made for each other, Crew was almost out of his funk before the plane took off. Their trip to Germany was magical, each stop brought them closer to Pops and each other. They had a great time not only rekindling their friendship but taking a step further and becoming lovers. But when the week was over it was back to reality, could they be a couple, he is on the west coast, still in college with hopes of going pro, she is in NY and wants to keep Pops’s farm going and his dream alive. And it is looking like her biggest fear, the farm going to developers may happen. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted with plenty of drama, some angst, humor, heartfelt and emotional moments and a wonderful friends to lovers romance. Meghan Quinn, thank you for this wonderful story, the emotional rollercoaster ride and the laughs.

🎧📚🎧And for the fabulous narration, Kelsey Navarro and Tim Paige did an awesome job portraying the characters, bringing them to life and humanizing them with their emotions and personality. I loved how they took each role and made it their own, Kelsey Navarro played the perfect Hazel and Tim Paige’s Crew was perfection too, sounding just as I pictured them to sound. Both were great covering the secondary characters as well. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fantastic listen🎧📚🎧

What a fantastic trip!

Meghan Quinn is a go to listen for me. She writes with humor and passion, each story original. There is something about this one in particular that makes me it my favorite. When Pops died, Crew was lost. His grandfather was everything to him and now life's decisions and dreams are all being questioned. But his grandfather left him something to help him. Sending him on an adventure through Germany, and who better to be chosen to go with him than Hazel. He has known her forever, and their trek taken by the letters from his grandfather open new ways of thinking, with sights and experiences they never would have had. But why? Take this journey with Crew and Hazel. It's a blast! Quinn gives us a fantastic vacation and the wisdom of a man who has lived his best life. I love how these two learn and grow and realize what life is all about. It's a fun, humorous, sensual and features the best Grandfather ever!

I can't say enough good things about narration of this book. This couple has so much fun, but has ups and downs too. The narration of Kelsey Navarro and Tim Paige is spot on. Each has spot on comedic timing, and builds on their characters as they grow and change. I love this team, enjoy them each time they narrate together and this one is especially amazing.
