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?

This is #04 in the Misadventures Series by Shayla Black.
HEA with No cliffhangers!
This is a Multi Author series, written as a standalone. You do not need to read them in order.
Content Advisory: High heat
There is sex, dirty talk, and dirty thoughts. 👍
I've listened to several titles in this series and they have all been very steamy! The stories are page turners too, which makes them a win, win for me! The consistency as a whole has been great even though this is a multi author series of standalones. Most of the Misadventures can be found in the library as well as various subscription services so they are easy to come by.
Carson Frost is trying to salvage the business left to him by his birth father, but his rash choices are coming back to haunt him. He took a deal with a competitor for the money he needed to keep the business afloat and the shiny coins aren't shiny or even real coins anymore. In an effort to get out of the deal he hires Ella Hope to be the long lost love of his life ... that will get him out of his current engagement ... and then dump him at the altar ... Simple, Right?
Ella Hope is a struggling actress. Her love life, as well as her bank account, have seen better days. She remembers Carson and how she would of been interested if she were not on a date with his friend. The call was welcomed timing. Spending time with the hot guy from the party while padding her bank account sounds like a solid plan. She is a professional ... she can do this ... Simple, Right?
It wasn't Simple! Things heat up fast, and their well laid plans go out the window. As the outside players keep changing the rules, things get crazy. Well, more crazy , because things started there in the first place. Lies become real, while the real becomes lies. Don't believe anyone till its all said and done! A good time will be had, and that is not a lie!
Shayla Black is a go-to for racier reads with awesome characters. 😊 She did not disappoint with this title.
Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers narrate this title with alternating POVs. Both individually did a great job in their pacing and emotion. I do wish it would of been a true Duet though, because they end up, by default, competing with each other for who did the character better. It's really hard to pick a clear winner.
Normal speed was fine, however I listened at 0.90x. It is my personal preference.
