Publisher's Summary

Newlyweds Alice and Jake are a picture-perfect couple. Alice, once a singer in a well-known rock band, is now a successful lawyer. Jake is a partner in an up-and-coming psychology practice. Their life together holds endless possibilities. After receiving an enticing wedding gift from one of Alice's prominent clients, they decide to join an exclusive and mysterious group known only as the Pact.

The goal of the Pact seems simple: to keep marriages happy and intact. And most of its rules make sense: Always answer the phone when your spouse calls. Exchange thoughtful gifts monthly. Plan a trip together once per quarter. Never mention the Pact to anyone. Alice and Jake are initially seduced by the glamorous parties, the sense of community, their widening social circle of like-minded couples. And then one of them breaks the rules. The young lovers are about to discover that for adherents to the Pact, membership, like marriage, is for life. And the Pact will go to any lengths to enforce that rule. For Jake and Alice, the marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare.

    "Didn't want it to end!"

    Not your usual suspense subject matter. Fast-paced, intricate and fascinating. Your mind will thank you.

    "Kept me up all night"

    Thought the book had an interesting storyline. I really enjoyed the fictional concept but could imagine how a good idea can evolve into something frightening due to greed and overblown egos.

    "Excellent!"

    I couldn't stop listening. Good writing kept me wanting to know what would happen next. Only bogged down a few times and got a little wordy in places. Even had some good advice mixed in. Highly recommended!

    Story
    "This was an interesting book!"

    This had a pretty unique plot - a newly married couple gets invited to become part of an exclusive club, designed to help keep couples married for life. The premise was really creative, and the author did a terrific job of building up the conflict. What's interesting about this book is just like any other cult or abusive relationship -- in passing conversation, you think, "How could they possibly get caught up in that?" But it's the frog slowly boiling in water scenario, and the author really knocked it out of the park with the build-up. The character development was outstanding, and the narrator was superb. I'm not sure I liked the ending, though. Not going to give it away here to spoil it, but all in all it was a pretty fun listen. I barely put it down... highly recommend for anyone who enjoys suspenseful drama.

    Story
    "Twilight zone meet Stephen kings 1980s Cat's eye"

    So I'm a huge fan of both the above series and Book (movie) and it is true that this The book is very reminiscent of both however.... with that said,it took me much longer to finish this section then most of my listens and honestly it was just a little to bizarre so I almost had to force to press play and wait for the ending. Not one for my faves folder.

    "What a good idea that was completely wasted"

    The author had a great idea for a story but got lost with the characters. Alice and Jake were made to appear so stupid I felt no connection with them. It was as if the book repeated itself to be longer. The end was perhaps the worst cop out I've ever encountered.

    "I liked a lot of it...."

    Can't say I loved it but it was good. Suspensful, and interesting. Anticlimactic ending though.

    "Makes you think about wedded BLISS"

    I loved the narrator. He gave life to the characters and kept the story intriguing. The story itself was equally engaging. It explored love, commitment, and the dark side of saying "I do " to anything .
