The name’s Barrett Callahan. Yeah, that Barrett Callahan—the one the press dubbed “Bare” after those naked sexting pictures surfaced. At twenty-five, I was armed with an MBA from Harvard, an executive position at my father’s Fortune 500 company, a penthouse, and a different piece of delectable eye candy in my bed every weekend. I had a life most men dreamed of. But then my father decided to run for president, and my playboy lifestyle became a liability to his campaign that was built on family values. My “makeover” comes in the form of a fake fiancée who I don't even get to choose--one who is an uptight, choirgirl acting priss but also sexy-as-hell.
My latest relationship had gone down in flames, and I was drowning in a sea of student loans when in true Godfather status, James Callahan made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Seven figures for seven months on the campaign trail pretending to be the adoring fiancée of his son, Barrett. As soon as he won the election, our engagement would be dissolved amicably for the press, I was free to ride off into the sunset a million dollars richer, and because of the NDA, no one would be the wiser. Sure, I’d never met the guy, but I’d been a theater nerd in high school. I could pull off any role from Lady Macbeth to Maria Von Trapp. But that was before I met my fake fiancé—the infuriating, self-absorbed, egotistical, drop-dead-sexy King of the Manwhores.

First of all, let me say that I'm a huge fan of Katie Ashley. So when I saw this, I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. And it didn't! I absolutely loved Addison and Barrett. Their chemistry and banter back and forth were off the charts.
Addison who works on the campaign totally believed in the president nominee and his values. She is tough as nails, has a heart of gold, and doesn't take anything from Barrett aka Bear. Barrett, the womanizing man has met his match. As much as he dishes out, she gives it right back. At first they are oil and water. But as time goes bye and with each win, they become closer and become friends on the campaign trail. With being holed up on a rural motel with one double bed, their fate comes full force. Their feelings towards one another blossom into the real deal. And after election night, they both don't want to go separate ways.
Will the fake engagement change into something that is real? There was so many LOL moments in Running Mate. If you haven't read any Katie Ashley's books, start now!
