Misadventures of a Backup Bride 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?


I loved this book! I have to say this one was my favorite so far. I was hooked from the first page. I instantly fell in love with both Ella and Carson.

Carson is soon going to marry a woman that he doesn’t love in order to get her father to help out with his company. ( before you judge, she isn’t in love with him either). Weeks before the wedding he knows that cannot marry her. So he lies and says that he is already in love with someone else. The dad calls him on his bluff and says that he wants to meet the girl who he so called loves and if he can prove it then he will let him out marrying his daughter and still give him the help for his company. He ends up calling Ella, a girl who is also an actress he met at a wedding a few months back to help him get out marrying his daughter.

The chemistry between these two was magnetic. It’s like it jumped off the page and zapped you. Even though it was basically insta lust, I don’t care. I was rooting for them like no other. All I wanted was a way for this to work and just an HEA.

If your looking for something that’s hot, sexy, and will leave you smiling like an idiot once you are done then pick this up book up!
