The Marriage Pact by Mara White and K. Larsen


Ryan Walters and Jackie Bowen became instantaneous friends during their wild and free years of college. He, the rugged, yet all American football player from a stable family fell hard for Jackie, the exuberant, spontaneous girl from a broken home who lived and loved life to the fullest. Too young to commit and wary of damaging the unique bond they shared, the friends to lovers make a pact promising to find one another again at the age of thirty and marry—if not already committed.

Years apart, after much growth and change, the two best friends seek one another out. In college, neither Jackie or Ryan could possibly know that every relationship to come would fall short of the one they’d shared together all those years ago.

When the two meet again, love and chemistry soar beyond their wildest dreams and they agree to make good on their promise. But a second chance at love can be fickle and fleeting. 

The Marriage Pact is a story about letting go and loving with your whole heart no matter the circumstance—or how much it hurts.

The Marriage Pact, the second book in The Viral Series following Missed Connection, by romance authors K. Larsen and Mara White is based on a heartbreaking viral Reddit post.

5 Stars

I'm an emotional wreck. I started this book yesterday at lunch. Last night @ 11 am I finished and UGLY CRIED! My heart was drop kicked across the country.

Ryan met Jackie and slowly, fell in love. This is an epic romance that spans years, but their love stayed true to each other. Through thick and thin Ryan loved Jackie and vice versa.

Jackie was skittish in college, a commitment-phobe. Never wanting to give herself completely to anyone. Ryan was her best friend and her friend with benefits. She feared losing him if things didn't work out.

Ryan just wanted to love her. He played her games to appease her, but it was just for show. His heart belonged to Jackie, no one else. If only she'd see that.

Time passed, distance separates them, but their love never wavered. Ryan went to claim his girl. He waited long enough for Jackie to be his. But will they have a happily ever after? or will they ruin a perfect friendship? Only time and love will tell.

Ryan and Jackie are both very likable characters. In some way you an relate to them. I understand Jackie's hesitation at dating exclusively. She was filled with fear. Ryan's love for Jackie is what else every girl wants, what everyone deserves and to be reciprocated. 

The end. yeah, didn't see that one coming and cried. Grab your tissues, because you will cry. You'll cry happy tears, sad tears, and tears of frustration.

All that remains are whispers of the past…
When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to be an open-and-shut case.
With no quick means of identifying the victims, building a profile of this serial killer is proving more challenging than usual. How is the killer picking these victims? Why are their limbs being severed and bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this killer to murder?
