Misadventures of a Backup Bride

Waterhouse. (Misadventures, Bk. 1). Oct. 2017. 178p. ISBN 9781943893423. $19.99. EROTICA
Carson Frost has suddenly become a Sweet Darlin's CEO after a tragic turn of events—the father he barely knew left him his candy business when he dies. To avoid going under, Carson appealed to rival Gregory Shaw, who has since roped Carson into a marriage of convenience with his daughter Kendra in exchange for financial security. Carson's only out is a fabricated "one who got away" in the form of hired actress Ella Hope. Their chemistry is palpable and immediately leads to a passionate marathon sex session—though neither can tell who is putting on an act when it comes to true romance. Playful banter and affectionate one-upmanship showcase Ella's and Carson's competitive drive in their respective fields and highlight their compatibility. Ella's ambivalent relationship with her body size may prove relatable to some readers, though Carson's persistence in disabusing her of this notion by ordering her food while reassuring her of her beauty feels more controlling than altruistic. This component aside, fans of erotic romance will thoroughly enjoy Black's (More than Want You) simply sweet lovefest with its slightly wacky premise.
VERDICT This speedy, steamy read will leave hearts racing. A solid launch to the "Misadventures" series.
