Mister Stand-In by C.M. Albert

Title: Mister Stand-In
A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Author: C.M. Albert
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 8, 2020


Carter Wright was used to being anything but Mr. Right. He wouldn’t exactly call himself a street rat, but his life had somehow become a rags-to-almost-riches story—one he’d rather keep to himself. The best part about being a stand-in to some of the wealthiest a-holes in New York?


To anything, and anyone, he wanted.

And that certainly wasn’t Little Miss Moneybags, Presley Kincaid. No, he had his sights set on someone even hotter—her mother. But when Lauren asks him to stand in for her richer-than-sin fiancé at their rehearsal dinner, and then he’s later paired up with her spoiled daughter Presley at the wedding, Carter can do the only thing he’s truly good at: Shut up. Smile. Be charming.

Be the stand-in he was born to be.

But when Presley turns out to be more than she pretends—and a one-night stand gives her more access to his past than he intended—Carter’s simple, easy-going lifestyle starts to unravel, exposing the biggest lie of all. One so big, Carter never even saw it coming.

Will Presley accidentally expose The Stand-In for who he really is? Or will her discovery free Carter from the street hustle he’s perfected and finally help him claim a life, and love, that was always meant to be?

Mister Stand-In by C.M. Albert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I normally save this for the end of my review but it needs highlight and focus so … this sexy swoony cover is #winning and it delivered in the story! Talk about making a reader deliriously happy! Yes, yes it did!! LOL

Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin. This story was fantastic on all levels! Carter and Presley knew each other when they were young. At the time, their circles were far apart but today, today is whole other matter. Today, Presley is still among the same circle but Carter has created a whole new circle for himself as a self-made millionaire, and now you could say they were in the same circle. These two had friction from the very beginning but it was deliciously sexy and swoony and ridiculously entertaining at times! The choices the author made with these characters were realistic and relatable. The choices she made in plot points for this story were perfectly connected and every single one had a purpose. Not a single thing was over the top, unless you count the comic relief from Willa (GAH, I need that woman in my life!), and had a purpose that enhanced the story.

You guys, this story was all the things! It was exciting from beginning to end. It was romantic and sexy and humorous with a captivating storyline and will fill your heart with giddiness. I’ve only read one other book by this author and it blew me away and now I can add another! No matter what, I’m digging into her backlist and making sure C.M. Albert is on my radar moving forward! Go forth and #oneclick TODAY! Seriously. Do it now!
