Book Description:

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…? 

A brand new romantic comedy from bestseller Portia MacIntosh, perfect for fans of Zara Stoneley, Sophie Ranald and Mhairi McFarlane.

Cara’s social calendar was a blank page. She would come home every night for her cat, if not for the fact that she worked from home and did not have one.

The dating app kept matching her with all kinds of weirdos, and even they were standing her up.

Add to this mess, a resentful aunt, a vindictive cousin, and an obsessive ex-boyfriend.

But sometimes, what seems like the end is actually a new beginning.

By a stroke of luck, Cara met the gorgeous and friendly Millsy, a guy way out of her league, but willing to be her friend.

The book is well written and very amusing. Cara and Millsy are adorably clumsy, and there are some laugh-out-loud moments. I read it all in one day. I just could not stop myself.

I love how the story shows that different is good. That what we think we want in a partner is not necessarily what we need in one.

If you are in search of a feel-good, lighthearted romantic comedy, look no further. The Plus One Pact is perfect for you.

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

About the Author:

Portia MacIntosh has been ‘making stuff up’ for as long as she can remember – or so she says. Whether it was blaming her siblings for that broken vase when she was growing up, blagging her way backstage during her rock chick phase or, most recently, whatever justification she can fabricate to explain away those lunchtime cocktails, Portia just loves telling tales.After years working as a music journalist, Portia decided it was time to use her
powers for good and started writing novels instead.
Bestseller Portia writes hilarious romcoms, drawing on her real life experiences to show what it’s really like being a woman today – especially one who doesn’t quite have her life together yet.
