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?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast paced, spirited MISADVENTURES OF A BACKUP BRIDE is the fourth installment in the multi-authored MISADVENTURES anthology series of novellas. This is billionaire, candy company owner and CEO Carson Frost, and actress Ella Hope’s story line. Each installment in the MISADVENTURES series is a stand alone, and can be read in any order. Told from dual first person perspectives (Ella and Carson) MISADVENTURES OF A BACKUP BRIDE follows the fake relationship between billionaire owner of Sweet Darlin’ Candy Company Carson Frost, and struggling Hollywood actress Ella Hope. With the recent death of his biological father Carson Frost became the sole owner and proprietor of the Sweet Darlin’ Candy Company-a company over extended on funds, and struggling to survive. When Gregory Shaw, his competition and rival at Dulce Lama makes an offer Carson cannot refuse, our hero finds himself engaged to a woman (Kendra Shaw) he does not love. Enter Ella Hope, Hollywood actress, and the woman Carson hires to be the woman he truly loves. What ensues is the insta-lust/love relationship between Ella and Carson, and the potential fall out when Gregory Shaw get wind of the ruse, and forces our hero to go through with a different set of wedding plans. MISADVENTURES OF A BACKUP BRIDE is a story of one man’s desperation to save his father’s business, and one woman who struggles with a future originally designed for someone else. The relationship between Carson and Ella is one of instant attraction. Our couple previously met six month earlier but since haven’t spoken to one another. The author quickly reveals some of the individual backstory and history of our leading couple, as well as Ella’s struggle between her head and her heart. The $ex scenes are numerous, erotic and provocative. MISADVENTURES OF A BACKUP BRIDE is a fast paced, spirited and energetic novella. The premise is engaging but predictable; the romance is passionate; the characters are charming and inspiring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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
