Running Mate – Book Review


Running Mate by Katie Ashley

Four Royal Crowns

Four out of Five Flames

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.

I effen’ love Katie Ashley!!! from her MC books, her HEA’s, and now this political story!

In Running Mate, we get the delicious Barrett Callahan… he is the naughty son of the primary candidate for President of the United States.  He has an amazing heart.. just a bad boy reputation being the son of a very wealthy and powerful man.  Well dear old dad has a plan that will make sure that his little junior will not hinder the campaign!

Enter stage left Addison, the beautiful and intelligent campaign employee.  She has all the right qualifications for the part… oh! what part you ask?  Well that of fake fiancé to junior!  What could go wrong, right??  play the part.. get paid 7 figures, and in just a few months… disappear!  perfect, and super easy!  sort of! lol



Oh my was this a fun read!!! Katie always writes fun and very intelligent stories.  This had all the drama and twists you would expect.. and the hotness factor was through the roof!

Definitely read this!
