Easily this writing duo’s best release of 2021, this green card marriage romance is both hilarious and hot. It’s got some sizzling chemistry, and this couple is GREAT together. The further I got into the book, the more I loved it – this leads with the lust before slowly transitioning into the love, and the hero at the heart of it definitely won me over. I’ll openly admit that I was exceedingly disappointed in The Bet, the introduction to the Winslow Brothers, and I was not looking forward to the sequel. A group of fortyish, commitment-phobic brothers was not at all appealing to me, and I went into this with some serious hesitation. My doubts were quickly and thoroughly put to rest – this was EXCELLENT.
The story follows Flynn, a 41-year-old guy who is happy living the single life. He has no plans to ever marry, and he’s perfectly content to remain a bit of a mystery to everyone. But when Flynn meets a sexy stranger in Vegas, she is a whirlwind. Only hours after meeting Daisy (29), Flynn finds himself proposing a no strings attached, green card marriage to help the Canadian woman stay in the country. Neither one really thinks beyond the moment, and it’s not long before they’re giving into their lust. Except… there are always strings attached in a marriage, and certainly one that the couple will need to prove authentic to the government.
This is the return of the MM that I love – steamy, fun, easy, and playful romance. Their last few releases have been very uneven for me, so I was delighted to discover just how good this was. Flynn makes a MUCH better hero than anticipated; he’s the strong and silent type, speaking more in the bedroom than anywhere else and acting as the steady rock to Daisy’s wild storm. He calms her chaos in some *ahem* unexpected ways. The opposites attract dynamic was so fun to read, and it was easy to see how well they complemented each other. I love it when a couple just seems to FIT together, and these two were perfect. While their connection leads with the physical side of things, it’s the emotional connection that shines by the end. This was a low angst, sexy treat, and here’s hoping that the next brother’s story is just as much fun.
“I need a ride,” I said to a sexy stranger on a Harley.
Three hours later? A six-foot-tall Marilyn Monroe was officiating our Vegas wedding at the Happy Chapel.
But it’s not love—it’s business—a marriage pact made out of desperation so my career doesn’t go up in flames.
Sure, Flynn Winslow is a hot, broody, mysterious man that women all over the globe would sell their souls to land for real, but I have my eyes on the prize and our marriage arrangement will end in three months with no strings attached.
Or will it all go out the window when I have to move in with Mr. Mysterious and our fake marriage starts to feel remarkably real?
I wish it were as easy as telling myself, Do not fall in love with your fake husband, Daisy, but apparently, when feelings get involved, not everything that happens in Vegas knows how to stay in Vegas.

I didn’t like The Bet, personally. So much so that I didn’t even request an ARC of The Pact because I wasn’t sure that I was going to like it either. The Bet is not necessarily required reading for The Pact, but it does introduce this group of brothers and the book is certainly scorching. So whether you read it is up to you!
