Description

An Overnight Billionaire... When Carson Frost inherits a confectionary that rakes in billions but is too cash-strapped to last another sixty days, he agrees to take a loan from his late father's rival. There are two catches: Carson has to sign over a permanent stake in the company, and marry the man's daughter.

Concocts a Fake Bride... Two weeks before the wedding, he gets cold feet and claims he's in love with someone else. The investor says he'll still hand over the cash if Carson takes a stroll down the aisle-with the woman who owns his heart. Since he isn't even dating anyone, Carson panics. Where is he going to find a bride willing to jilt him at the altar on such short notice?

And Whips Up a Little Love. Ella Hope is an actress happy for any paying gig, but jilting a hottie in public isn't what she had in mind. Still, she needs rent, and he's in a bind. How hard can it be? While playing at matrimony, suddenly their intimacy isn't so fake. Ella can't help but fantasize that Carson is her groom and they will live happily ever after. But once his company is safe, will he want her anymore?

        September 1, 2017

        Carson Frost has suddenly become a Sweet Darlin's CEO after a tragic turn of events--the father he barely knew left him his candy business when he dies. To avoid going under, Carson appealed to rival Gregory Shaw, who has since roped Carson into a marriage of convenience with his daughter Kendra in exchange for financial security. Carson's only out is a fabricated "one who got away" in the form of hired actress Ella Hope. Their chemistry is palpable and immediately leads to a passionate marathon sex session--though neither can tell who is putting on an act when it comes to true romance. Playful banter and affectionate one-upmanship showcase Ella's and Carson's competitive drive in their respective fields and highlight their compatibility. Ella's ambivalent relationship with her body size may prove relatable to some readers, though Carson's persistence in disabusing her of this notion by ordering her food while reassuring her of her beauty feels more controlling than altruistic. This component aside, fans of erotic romance will thoroughly enjoy Black's (More than Want You) simply sweet lovefest with its slightly wacky premise. VERDICT This speedy, steamy read will leave hearts racing. A solid launch to the "Misadventures" series.

      • content: Narrators Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers set the perfect tone, both sexy and silly, in this racy romp of an audiobook. It's a story of insta-love (or really, insta-lust) between a billionaire businessman and his fianc�e-for-hire. These two are burning up the sheets in no time, so be advised that the love scenes are detailed and plentiful. The story's point of view switches back and forth frequently between the hero and heroine, but the narrators' voices complement each other nicely, and moving from one voice to another is never jarring. The plot is contrived, and the characters will likely provoke an eye roll or two, but if one can sit back and just go along for the ride, this audiobook is frisky fun.
