“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!


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


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.

It was an offer Addison couldn’t really refuse. All she had to do was to pretend to be a loving fiancée to the hottie, manwhore and future presidential son, Barrett Callahan. Seven Figures for seven months – not bad, right? All she has to do was to pretend and then she will get the money, be free of student loans and start a new life. But meeting Barrett Callahan was a different story. He was overbearing, self-centered and pretty much annoying. Even she, however, could not deny the fact that this man is super sexy, and is pleasing to the eye.

Barrett is enjoying his bachelorhood and his freedom. At 25, he was young and he was making the best out of life. But when his father decided to run for president, his lifestyle became a problem, and his father thought of the best decision that could easily solve it – having a fiancée! A fake one!

Despite the manipulation James did, I couldn’t help but like him. He was kind, and nice, as were the rest of the family. Addison’s family were amazing as well, and quite jaw-dropping. There were times when I hated Addison, her apprehensions and her doubts made me want to throttle her – good thing Barrett knows how to do big gestures!

Katie Ashley gave a great mix of romance, sex and laughter. I love the two characters, the banters, the sexual chemistry and not to mention the anticipation of what’s going to happen next. There were a whole lot of surprises and unexpected twists that was happening.
