The Plus One Pact by Portia MacIntosh


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 brilliant first chapter, followed by the info that the main character designs escape rooms for a living (who knew such jobs existed??!!) yanked me straight into this quirky story. The main character has a wry, dry sense of humour and a tongue in cheek delivery, which really appealed to me and she resonated with me instantly.  I love a friends to lovers romance and this one is a delight from start to finish. The scrapes they get into are laugh aloud funny, and the characters are extremely likeable; the ones who are meant to be, that is.  On a final note, Ms MacIntosh. please could you point Millsy in my direction  - I badly need a make over!  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 it together yet.
