    3.5 Stars!

    Talk about a whirlwind! Carson Frost inherits his biological fathers billion dollar candy business that was leveraged too high and left the company cash strapped. He never had much to do with his father, nor stepped foot in the company before. He's working ten times harder to make sure he can turn things around and not let it go in default. Carson is left with very little choice but to take the competitions offer. Sign over stock in the company and marry the daughter of his fathers rival. The problem is, neither him nor the daughter want this marriage. At a last ditch effort, Carson tries to talk sense into Gregory and not doom his daughter to an unhappy marriage, but nothing works until he admits that he is already in love with another woman. Gregory is a shrewd business man and he dares Carson to marry his supposed love of his life in two weeks time or the offer for the bail out will have higher consequences. This is where we meet Hope. Carson and Hope are no strangers. They met months before at a party where she was his friends date. They had an immediate attraction but could do nothing about it. The date never went further than that night between Hope and his friend, but soon after Carson found out he inherited the candy company and moved states away. When Carson told Gregory that he was already in love, he immediately thought of Hope and decides to contact her to see if she is willing to play the part of a woman falling in love while he works on changing Gregory's mind. When she agrees to pretend to give them a chance, both Carson and Hope learn that their attraction is still very much there. This was a crazy plot twist that was entertaining but also a bit on the unbelievable side. I still enjoyed the story and was curious how it would all play out in the end. I couldn't figure out why Gregory would allow Carson to switch out his daughter for another woman but the authors did a good job of explaining his behavior in the end. ARC provided by NetGalley.

    love this one

    Carson Frost hires Ellie Hope who he met 6 months ago at a party for his friend. He was to marry the daughter of a competitor, but he isn't in love with her. The ruse was to show her father that they shouldn't be together. Ellie and Carson turn it to be so much more together. Mr. Shaw forces them to the altar to prove their love and to keep the contract of him giving Carson the money he needs for his company. Ellie's indecision towards the wedding day gave me the jitters, wondering if she was actually going to go through with it. Gotta read this one.

    5 Star review of Misadventures Of A Backup Bride by Shayla Black What a complicated life Carson Frost leads! When he inherits a confectionery company, he turns to a competitor to assist him with much needed funds he cannot raise in time. The catch? He has to marry the man’s daughter and give up a percentage of his business. What’s Carson going to do but go ahead with it. However, when doubt rears it’s head he knows he cannot marry her and so begins a web of lies that keep getting bigger and bigger. This is when Carson remembers meeting and being interested in an actress from LA named Ella Hope and he subsequently “hires” her to be his “fake” bride. What starts off as a fake relationship, soon morphs into so much more and becomes even more complicated, feelings become involved. The possibility of a real relationship soon becomes a reality, only problem is they live states away from each other. Will Carson be prepared to leave his inheritance behind or will Ella be prepared to give up her dreams of winning an Oscar? The chemistry between Carson and Ella was sizzling the twists and turns heart pounding and all in all was a great addition to this wonder Misadventures series.

    My favorite of the series

    This is definitely my favorite of the series! I absolutely loved Carson and Ella. Carson is being forced into a marriage with a rival’s daughter. He confesses to loving another woman and then finds himself having to prove it. Ella is an actress but hasn’t found success yet. When the man she met six months ago calls to offer her a job she accepts. The money is a great motivator but the truth is she was and still is very attracted to him. This plot moves along at a constant pace never getting old. Something is always twisting and turning as this couple try to decipher what they have together and how they might can make a relationship work. Everything boils down to whether or not they will actually say “I do”. The final twist was unexpected and, if not a little contrived, made me happy for everyone involved. I was disappointed there was no epilogue but everything else was great. This is a fast read with a bit of humor, realistic characters that communicate, a little insta love, and some good old fashioned steam. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and Waterhouse Press. Dual POV Safe No apparent triggers

    Loved it!

    This author has long been a favourite of mine, and her contribution to this marvellous new series is original, fun and has moments of laugh out loud you just can’t ignore. Carson and Ella are extremely entertaining and the overall storyline is captivating and addictive. To say that I’ve become an instant fan of this new off the cuff romance series, is not really giving the series it’s full credit. If you’re looking for something that’s got it all, then definitely add the Misadventures to your read list!
