ARC Review: The Plus One Pact by Portia MacIntosh

Thank you so much to NetGalley and Boldwood Books for giving me a copy of the Plus One Pact to read and review early! I’ve been really vibing on romance novels lately and I love British things, so this was a great combination! This was an adorable, quick read that I really enjoyed!

The Plus One Pact 4/5 Stars

Summary from Goodreads: What if your plus one could be the one…?



Cara has officially run out of men. Her most recent dates have gone from bad to worse, and when her dating app informs her there is no one left in her area to choose from, she is at a dead end.


But with a summer of events ahead of her, she needs to find a solution, fast; someone to keep her company at the never-ending weddings, family gatherings and gender reveal parties that she can’t face going to alone. So when she meets handsome, confident, Millsy on a night out she may be in luck. They could not be more different in personality, but he too has a summer of events ahead and is desperate to get his family off his back about finding a ‘nice girl’. What if they made a pact to help each other out and be a plus one for the summer? Just as friends of course…? 

As someone who has had periods of bad dates after bad dates and times when dating apps have told her that there’s no one left, I definitely empathized with Cara there! Having Millsy show up at the perfect time to help her out for the summer was great and the way things played out was super cute! I thought the Cara’s family dynamics really added to the success of this book- I would have hated to have had a cousin like hers! Overall, this book was super adorable and I really liked the way it was! It comes out on May 21st, so make sure to check it out!
