The race will be a fight to the death finish, and that’s not even the actual campaign.


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.

Title: Running Mate
Author: Katie Ashley


For as long as I can remember, I try to stay away from political books - mostly because I don't particularly enjoy or understand it on my best days. Then, every so often, one story will catch my attention and make me want to dive right in to find out what the author has in store for their readers, so when I landed on Katie Ashley's Running Mate, I was more than a little curious to find out about Barrett and Addison. Knowing as I went in that because Barrett's father was running for president, Barrett needed, at the very least, a PR makeover after a latest string of scandals as we'll as a fiancée to complete the look, I was hooked. And Addison is the perfect person for the job considering her latest track record with relationships hasn't been the best.


I was surprised because finding a novel that had many political aspects, I still found myself reading about two people who are doing something for others and end up finding something they never expected they were looking for. I laughed more times than I can count and connected with two completely different people than I ever could have imagined as they fell in love with one another - turning fake into reality, i enjoyed this twist from Katie Ashley and can't wait for more by her!
