Misadventures of a Backup Bride (Misadventures #4) by Shayla Black

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?

4 Stars
I’m all about these Misadventures series. I find them fun, flirty and different. I love that there’s a different author and theme to every book.

Misadventures of a Backup Bride is written by Shayla Black and I have to say this book is one of my favorites by her.

I found this book to be cute, quick and steamy.

Carson inherits his father’s company, the only thing is, it’s a failing company and he needs an investor to help him out.

His investor is a man who wants Carson to marry his daughter.

So what does Carson do? He concocts a plan. He tells his investor he’s already in love with a woman and if he can prove how much he loves her, can’t he just get the money anyhow?

The plot is a little different and it took me some time to understand. I mean Carson is in a pickle right? He has to marry a woman to save his company, but he plans on fake marrying another woman so he doesn’t have to marry the original woman? I know it’s crazy, but it does work.

Carson hires Ella to be his fake girlfriend and soon to be bride?

I liked both Carson and Ella. They had an insta-lust kind of relationship and it kind of vamped up the storyline. It went from sweet to intense fast. As Carson and Ella explore their relationship, Carson has to deal with his investor and decide what the best fate is for all of them. I liked the banter between Carson and Ella the best. I like how he wants her to eat and not try to be model thin and I like how Ella strives so hard to be perfect and pretty. It was like I said cute.

The thing I love about these books is that it’s a no fuss, no muss kind of read. It’s a good book to read in between the more dramatic ones.
