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.
The race will be a fight to the death finish, and that’s not even the actual campaign.

~ Maria’s Review ~
Running Mate by Katie Ashley is a wonderful romance. I really enjoyed the premise and the characters. Barrett is sex on a stick, charming, gorgeous, smart and smooth. He is a cocky, playboy with a heart. My favorite kind. Addison is smart, beautiful, and driven. I like that she is a strong female character. No damsel in distress here. Katie Ashley did a great job telling their story.
The banter between Addison and Barrett is funny, sweet and sexy. Author Katie Ashley develops their relationship gradually, no insta-love, thank god, and, definitely heat and attraction, with steamy sexy times!
Running Mate is a fun, sweet and sexy read. The storyline and characters are engaging. I was invested in their relationship and in their getting a HEA. This book had the right amount of push / pull to make for an awesome read. Highly recommend.
