Running Mate by Katie Ashley

Meet Barrett Callahan in Running Mate by Katie Ashley!



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.

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

Tired of hearing about our own political drama happening all around us? Then Running Mate is the perfect distraction to take your mind off it all! 

Addison Monroe loves the working on Senator Callahan's presidential campaign. She's great at her job and wants nothing more to be part of a winning team. But like most young, single and career-minded women, she's struggling to pay off her student loans and just trying to stay afloat in the expensive District of Columbia. So when she gets a proposition that will financially set her up by Senator Callahan's team, she can't seem to refuse the offer. The catch...getting engage to the Senator's son, Barrett, just during the campaign trail. They need to fool the American public she has tamed Barrett and they are ready to be the All-American couple. 

Barrett Callahan is one the hottest playboy. He loves woman and his reputation of his dating ways always ends up on Page Six. Not ideal when your father is running for Commander in Chief. So when his father tells him that he needs to clean up his act (at least until he lands the nomination), Barrett agrees to the fake engagement. But he's hesitant in meeting his fiancée. For all he knows, she is going to be mousey and bleak.  

I loved when Addison and Barrett met. The attraction between the two was there, but the cockiness of Barrett didn't appeal to Addison. She was the one woman that didn't fall all over Barrett and that just made him want to irritate her more! The back and forth between these two is humorous and fun. But when you spend 24/7 with a person, you know sparks will eventually start to happen. 

Running Mate is a cute and romantic standalone that is sexy and fun.
