SUMMARY ó Running Mate (Running Mate #1) õ Barrett 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 deleT 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 The race will be a fight to the death finish and that’s not even the actual campaig. Casting my vote for Katie Ashley's latest release A winner for sure Loved this easy fun and sexy romp on the campaign trail However there were a few what the heck moments where I uestioned the timeline on Senator Callahan There was one place where his birth year was shown as 1943 and a chapter or two later he was said to have just turned 60 Doesn't balance when I did the math Threw me out of the story for a bit while I did some calculating but it wasn't a big takeaway from the storyline A minor nitpickLoved the characters and their witty banter in this arranged engagement scenario The First Son was a delightfully hot and sexy bad boy who met his match when his dad determined he needed an image change and promptly set it in motion

Ily 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 Addison 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 engagemen. I read till chapter 2 After some info from a friend of mine like a summary of what she read she stopped at chapter 8 I just decided not finishing I wasn't caught up in the book in the 1st 2 chaptersand they are loonngg chapters so I will cut my losses Among other things she said up to chapter 8almost half of the book there was zero progressdevelopment in the MCs relationship The hero was a manwhore and the way he was introduced was one factor I decided to stop reading detailed sex with ow in his jet And the heroine was too feminist I mean I'm all for woman strength and independency but I still think there's nothing wrong in being helped and even pampered I loved those And my friend said to chapter 8 she hadn't improved her personality And the hero was a prick but he still was trying to help Anyway those info came from a real life' close friend Not a virtual GR friend and I trust her It doesn't mean I won't read another book by the author because I will I did enjoy some of her books in the pastAnd this is just a comment I made in London's postI found out it can be or can't be safe For me particularly it's not The 1st time we meet the hero he's having detailed sex with an opera singer in his jet and it was making plans to meet her later He hadn't met the h yet but still not for me And after meeting the heroine he was supposed to let said singer go because of fale fiancée reasons And he was really sorry to do it because she was hot and was looking forward for sex with her I don't like this either I got this from a friend who's reading it and she's thinking about DNF because there's no progress in the book Nothing happens and the MCd act like 17 years old instead of 27 Always fighting to what at an extent it's entertaining but at almost half way is tiresome I confess I started reading and stopped at chapter 2 I put it down with zero effort And now after this info I have no desire to get back to it and I'm thinking of DNF as well I was going to take one for the team London but I can't do it Lol
