THE WEDDING PACT
by Katee Robert
Carrigan O’Malley has fallen in love with family enemy #1, James Halloran and he has absolutely no intention of letting her get away. THE WEDDING PACT is the second book in a smoking-hot series about the O’Malleys—wealthy, powerful, and full of scandalous family secrets from New York Times Bestseller Katee Robert and Forever Romance.
Series: The O’Malley Series #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 26, 2016
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing- Forever
Carrigan O’Malley has always known her arranged marriage would be more about power and prestige than passion. But after one taste of the hard-bodied, whiskey-voiced James Halloran, she’s ruined for anyone else. Too bad James and his family are enemy number 1.
Hallorans vs. O’Malleys—that’s how it’s always been. James should be thinking more about how to expand his family’s empire instead of how silky Carrigan’s skin is against his and how he can next get her into his bed. Those are dangerous thoughts. But not nearly as dangerous as he’ll be if he can’t get what he wants: Carrigan by his side for the rest of their lives.
Meet the O’Malley family in book one of the O’Malley series, The Marriage Contract:
Oh the suspense with this one!! The Wedding Pact is the second book in the O’Malley’s series by Katee Robert and features James and Carrigan (love this name) and a whooooole lot of drama!
Its a straight up mafia story – where the crime runs deep and nothing matters to the bosses except coming out on top. They will stop at nothing and nobody gets in their way, not even their own children.
James unwittingly becomes the head of his “family” after his father winds up in jail. He kidnaps Carrigan and her sister in law…. Their families are arch enemies. Ohhhh, the drama!! James and Carrigan KNOW how dangerous it is for the two of them to be together, to see each other, to even be seen together. It could mean the difference between life and death. EEK!!
The book doesnt release yet for several more days and I wont add any more info to avoid spoiling it. I will stick now to the logistical stuff (boo!). The characters – especially the main characters, James and Carrigan, were nicely developed and had a 3-dimensional feel about them. The storyline flowed well. The editing was clean, no grammar mistakes and only a couple of minor typos. A very nicely put together work.
I give The Wedding Pact 3.5 ****WickedGoodStars and will recommend it to readers who like mafia stories, steamy sexy times and series books.
Thank you for the opportunity to read/review this book! 🙂
