Book Tour, Review & Giveaway - Running Mate by Katie Ashley


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

Meet Barrett Callahan in Running Mate by Katie Ashley!



Full Blurb


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.


I'm not one that usually like's political romances but i really enjoyed this read. It wasn't over the top with the politics which i prefer especially as a British reader i don't understand how politics work over here at the best of times never mind in the USA. So i sometimes have a hard time connecting to the book. But not this one and that's down to Katie Ashley's style of writing i was able to follow and understand what was happen on the politics side of the book. 

Although this hasn't been put in the Romantic Comedy Genre. I really did find parts of the book to be quite amusing, the things that happened to Addison were comical and the banter between Addison and Barrett was brilliant. 

So what happens when your playboy behaviour is affecting your fathers chances of Presidency. Well you agree to the terms he sets out of having a fake engagement!!
How hard could it be?? Spend some time with a woman then when its over go back to your playboy way right, Right!

Addison is presented a life changing proposition pretend to be engaged to the senators son. She's just what they need to improve his lifestyle. She's hard working comes from a good wholesome background. Can she really do this? All she's got to do is remember is that this is a job and not to fall for the handsome man standing before her. Which when he opens his mouth she doesn't think there will be any problems with that!

Barrett was the typical playboy knowing he can get any woman. Even though he was hard working his image let him down. Addison was quirky, feisty and i loved her attitude. What she brought out in Barrett showed us his other side, and as much as they rubbed each other up the wrong way they were so right for each other. 

This for me was a good fun read with a hea not one to missed.
