Review: Misadventures of a Backup Bride (Misadventures #4) by Shayla Black

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?

****
Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

A sweet and sexy read! This romance starts off unconventionally and turns into something neither hero or heroine ever expected!

Carson inherited a candy company that is bleeding red.  He agrees to take a loan from a rival candy company for a stake in this company and marriage to his daughter. As the wedding draws near, Carson has absolutely no connection to his fiancée. Neither want to marry the other, but under the circumstances, they both feel trapped. Carson comes up with the idea that he is in love with someone else and can’t possibly marry his rival’s daughter!  He is asked to produce said love of his life!  Enter Ella!

Ella is an actress who met Carson at a house party six months ago.  He calls her out of the blue and offers her a job of being the love of his life!  Ella has bills to pay so she accepts the job.  Once with Carson, their chemistry is off the charts! Talk about sparks flying from the pages!!  They decide to change their agreement and act on their attraction.  What could it hurt to have some hot and steamy sex while she is there??

Misadventures of a Back Up Bride is Shayla Black’s entrée in the Misadventures series and its an all-around enjoyable read! I loved Carson and Ella together and their vulnerabilities.  They were overcome with each other, and they each were overwhelmed before they knew it.  Pretty soon, it was clear they couldn’t live without the other, but their predicament seemed hopeless.  Love is real and things are never as hopeless as it seems.  This was a delightful read and I totally recommend this as well as the entire Misadventures series!
