Rating: 4 Groupie StarsThis is the fourth book in the misadventures series and my first book by Shayla Black. It was a really good addition to the series and I liked the writing style of Black.
Carson just inherited a candy company from his father, the one he hardly knew due to his addiction to work. Now to keep his fathers legacy afloat he goes to a rival candy maker for a loan as no bank will give home one. The rival agrees, with some stipulations, Carson has to marry his daughter.
Though Carson and his bride try their hardest they can’t find common ground and neither want to go through with the marriage. So Carson lies and says his long lost love, Ella is back. Now Carson met Ella 6 months ago and knew she was an actress in LA. When they met the sparks flew so he knew it would be prefect for her to fake his love interest to get out of this horrible marriage and still keep the loan.
Ella knows as soon as she and Carson are back together that she would fall for him, and how could that work? Her life is in LA and his in North Carolina. What happens when Carson’s plan for a fake love go up in smoke when her really falls for Ella?! Can these to make it work or will Carson lose his dads company and Ella?
I loved that the heroine wasn’t some pure virgin and that she knew who she was! She was confident when it came to her body and I loved the sparks between her and Carson!
I can’t believe I’ve never read a Shayla Black book before because now I will read her more! I loved the writing style! The story line was great! I would definitely recommend this book!!
