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.

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!

Swooning over Hollis

I loved Larissa in the other books I've met her in and I was thrilled to see her get her happily ever after. Hollis is the perfect compliment to her. He carries a lot of baggage that he keeps tucked away, but things tend to surface as feelings deepen. I loved watching these two take their fake relationship into a real one. If there is a person who deserves to feel love, it's Holllis. I loved watching him become the man I knew he could be.

The narrators did a great job bringing this story to life.

The Relationship Pact Review

i hadn’t read this one from Adriana Locke yet, and I’m glad I got the chance to listen to the audio.
it’s so good!
it’s Teddy and Erin’s tone and affliction when narrating for Hollis and Larissa that made it over the top for me.
highly recommend!

4.5 stars!

I really enjoyed this fake relationship romance! Hollis and Larissa have great instant chemistry and banter. I really loved the character growth and the development of a fake relationship to real feelings (it was quick but believable). I liked that both Hollis and Larissa had issues they had to work through to get to their happily ever after. I also have to give a shout-out to Grandma Judy – she is such a gem of a character! Everyone should be so lucky to have a Grandma Judy in their life. Although I haven’t read/listened to Adriana’s other series, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the side characters and I am definitely going to check out the Landry series and the Mason series. As for the narration, Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon are top notch! Teddy perfectly captures Hollis’ guarded exterior but sweet, soft center. Erin just embodies any character she narrates. Overall, a wonderful romance with excellent narration! *I received a promotional code for this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.*

Fake Dating At Its Best

I love this story and the narrators. Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon do a wonderful job. Two great narrators that are perfect compliments to each other. Definitely recommend this listen and at just over 7 hours its plenty of listening time.

Story:
I absolutely loved this book. Hollis worked his way right into my heart and Larissa could not have been more loveable. Adriana Locke does an amazing job of creating a fun light steamy read with such deep emotion weaved through that this book hits home. Everyone should experience Hollis and Larissa and their journey to a “slice of happiness” especially considering this world isn’t always so kind or very happy. I did say touchdown, but I don’t consider this a sports romance even though Hollis is a football player and I say that in a good way. A bit heartbreaking at times and totally romantic. 5+ stars for me.

a great read/listen

A case of fake boyfriend, used to detour an ex boyfriend, leads to a laugh out loud, sweet, HEA!

Hollis and Larissa are too cute together. This book flows perfectly. Great writing. Just a feel good rom-com.

Fantastic Listen! You will love Larissa and Hollis

Overall - What a fantastic story! I really enjoyed the complex thinking of Larissa and the deep introspection of Hollis. Their meet-cute could not have been more perfect and the instant click they had will have you immediately wishing for more interactions. The things these two get into will bring you laughter and some swoon-worthy moments. I loved the side characters brought in to this story as well.
I loved this cross-over style story that brings you characters from Adriana Locke's book worlds as well as the characters from the other King's of Football multi-author series. You really get the best of multiple worlds.

Performance - I really enjoy listening to the voices of Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon. They are able to bring emotion to the story through their voices and they compliment each other well. Going from chapter to chapter is a seamless transition between their voices.

all the feels

This is part of a series, but can absolutely be read as a stand alone. I've haven't read the previous books yet, but still enjoyed it. I did the audio version, and the narrators did a fantastic job of bringing the story to life.
I had read the first two books of the Mason series by this author first so I was already familiar with this couple. It was nice to finally get to read about their HEA. There were times that my heart broke for Hollis. Lots of feels in his story.
Fake relationships are one of my favorite tropes, and this one was so well done. A spontaneous decision to pretend to be in a relationship, brought on by desperation. It soon becomes a win-win situation. Larissa became the family Hollis needed and craved.

The story was cute, but it did drag a little. Could have been more entertaining.

Great fake boyfriend book

4.5 stars. Larissa has been burned by love and always picks the wrong guy. So when she is in a bar and sees her ex coming she turns to the guy beside her and asks him to be her fake boyfriend for a few minutes. Hollis is a football player and used to girls wanting him and he is intrigued by Larissa so he agrees to be her fake boyfriend. This was another great book by Adriana Locke. I loved the chemistry Hollis and Larissa have as they try to figure out if they are just doing each other a favor or if they are falling for each other. I loved Judy and how she “adopts” Hollis and how he learns that he is lovable. If you are a fan of Adriana’s books, then you are get a large dose of Lincoln and the Mason family. Can’t wait to read Coy and Bellamy’s book in the Mason series next!

Fake Dating!!!

The Relationship Pact (Kings Of Football #3) is excellently written and fake dating at its best. I haven't listened to the other books in the series and it didn't effect my listening series. I loved the cameo appearance of Lincoln Landry. I love the Landry's. Hollis and Larissa characters are well developed with a beautiful romance. Sports, fake relationship, oddles of chemistry, awesome supporting character's and a intriguing storyline. Absolutely loved the epilogue.

Teddy Hamilton and Erin Malon were magic. Love, love, love the naratiion. Touchdown!!!!Teddy's inflection is easy listening. Erin's uniqueness is a treasure.

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!
