Blog Tour and Review - RUNNING MATE by Katie Ashley



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

Meet Barrett Callahan in Running Mate by Katie Ashley!



Full Blurb


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.

 Running Mate is a new standalone that you can’t help but love these characters.  Wild and cocky Barrett is one that I didn’t think could be tamed, but Addison proved him wrong.

Barrett is rich, privileged, and a huge manwhore.  So much so, that he is nicknamed “Bare” because of some wild photos that everyone has seen.  His life quickly changes when his dad, who is running for president, puts his foot down and insists Barrett change his ways.  Even though Barrett is a wild playboy, I couldn’t help but love him!

Addison is suffering from a broken heart and is working on the campaign for Barrett’s dad.  She is offered the job of a lifetime by becoming Barrett’s fiancée until the election.  She’s heard the rumors and seen the photos and has no idea how hard her job will be.

From that first meeting, you don’t know if it’s fighting or foreplay.  They get under each other’s skin, and I loved their banter!  When Barrett realizes he has to be ‘celibate’ until the election is over, he knows that will never happen and suggests some under the cover action between them.  Once they connect, it’s like nothing either of them expected.

Addison is one woman who will not be put in her place and gives Barrett quite the challenge. I loved seeing him actually work for something he wanted.  However, Addison is leery because her heart has been broken before, and she’s afraid to love again.  Barrett and Addison challenge each other, and their chemistry is oh so hot!  This is a quick 4 star read that if you love a reformed manwhore, a lot of chemistry, and a sexy love story, then you need to read this book.
