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?
FULL DISCLOSURE: There’s really no Shayla Black book I won’t read. I’ve paid ridiculous amounts of money for them sometimes because the woman delivers. Her story-telling skills are always realistic fiction. That means they could happen. It’s real. She may be spinning a fictional tale, but she makes sure that tale is realistic and relatable.
She did an outstanding job with Misadventures of a Back Up Bride. Not only did I feel Carson and Ella’s real attraction, but I felt their progression to love even more. I believed it. It was a very well thought out and unfolded plot. There were no holes. The good and the bad were entwined into the story and it made me very happy to read. I was rooting for these two from the very beginning.
One of the best things I liked about this book is the characters anxiety and trepidation about how fast their relationship was moving. Their insecurities about their fast-paced journey were written into the story. That’s realistic fiction. That’s how you write a proper love story that spans mere days. That’s how you make the reader believe in the love that forges in mere days. Because nothing that happens that quickly is all hearts and flowers … that’s Fantasy Land and I for one don’t care to read that. So excellent job with this journey! If you’re new to this author, I think this is one of the best books you could pick up today by her. However, there’s not too many I wouldn’t sing really high praises about so there’s that! LOL
