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.
This is the kind of politics I can really get into!
Picture the perfect political family. The Senator is the perfect contender for the Presidency. He is everything anyone could hope for in a candidate, regardless of Party affiliation. He should be a shoe-in right? One tiny problem... Barrett! He is the second son and a player. I don't mean the kind that just jumps from bed to bed, a new woman every night. He is that and more. Let's put it this way, his family jewels have been photographed and splattered all over the world in all kinds of publications. He forgot to cover himself. What can a father do with such a son?
This is a funny, amazing story of Barrett doing his best to help his father achieve his dreams, no matter what is asked of him. The fact that Addison is part of it and she drives him crazy with the fighting and banter is just the consequence of his commitment to making this work. Being sequestered with a strange woman for nine months, while you try to survive your blue balls, is only the beginning.
This book is one who will stay with you. Katie Ashley has outdone herself with this one. I can see myself re-reading this book sometime in the near future just for the sheer enjoyment of it again.
I am reviewing this book voluntarily because it was so much fun to read. Thank you to the author for sending me a copy to read.
