Enhance your purchase
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?
Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

First off, the premises is based off a guy trying to get out of an arranged marriage based on a business deal to his competitor’s daughter who is just starting her senior year of college. Who sets up a wedding for then? The ending which explains why the competitor did what he did felt cheap. Carson reconnects with Ella and hires her to play his girlfriend, so it becomes basically insta-love. The sexy times were very boring and repetitive. Also the connection of details was lacking and there were quiet a few spelling and grammatical errors. For a book published by a major publishing house, I was highly disappointed by these errors.
Carson Frost, 30, inherits his biological father's company worth a lot of money but in desperate need of cash flow. He bargains with a money man to get the money but has to marry the guy's daughter in exchange. He agrees. Then he starts to really look at his bride-to-be. She is beautiful, no doubt about that but a complete airhead. Kendra is a college student and a typical teen. Carson is going nuts. He has nothing in common with this woman and the marriage will be a disaster. There is no falling in love after the wedding. He can hardly stand to be in the same room with her immature silliness. He has got to do something.
So he appeals to his benefactor that he is in love with another woman. Okay, let me meet her. Now he has to produce the woman he is madly in love with. He does what any red-blooded American male would do, he hires an actress to play the part. This is where the fun comes in.
There is a lot of adventure, play acting, sex, and angst. It is a fun read. One reviewer talked about all the misspelled words, etc. I have to say, I didn't see them. Maybe those things have been fixed or maybe this English major was just looking for things to write about. Honestly, I get so caught up in the story line that I just don't see all the issues they are talking about. I thought it was a funny, misadventure that took a turn on both characters. There is a lot of sex but it did fit in the story where it showed up. This hero was a very lusty guy and his "love" was on the same page. I definitely recommend it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 10/23/2021
There's lots of fun and action in this story. Carson inherits his father's candy company but it is short on cash flow due to a cousin's poor executive decisions. Carson's plan to get a loan from Gregory Shaw, a competitor comes with strings attached. Carson has to agree to marry Shaw's daughter, Kendra. Neither Carson or Kendra are happy with the prospect of this marriage but Carson needs the loan and Kendra has to go along to get her trust fund released when she turns twenty-five. Carson finally gets Shaw to agree to the loan as long as he marries the woman he says he met in California and fell in love with. Carson then hires an actress he met in L.A. to pose as his love interest. Funny thing though, the actress is Ella Hope who Carson met and they both felt some interest and attraction to each other when they met at a party in L.A. Carson flies her to Charlotte, NC to meet Shaw, the agreement between Carson and Ella is to look like a couple in love, a few kisses but no sex. That didn't last long since both Carson and Ella feel a special connection and fall in love for real. There are many obstacles to the happily ever after and Shayla kept me guessing as to how and when their HEA would happen. The end of this story has a great surprise which absolutely shocked me.
This is a "turn the page and can't stop reading" book. I highly recommend it!
What can I say about Carson Frost and Ella Hope? The fact that they would have to be one of the hottest couples going around at the moment is no accident. Their chemistry is simply SCORCHING and their sex scenes would have to be some of the HOTTEST that I have read. These two together are simply off the charts!!!
Thrown together when Carson begins to doubt his deal to get married to save his inheritance, he and Ella are simply perfect together. Their relationship starts out as a ruse, as Carson wants to get out of his forthcoming wedding to Kendra, the daughter of the man who is blackmailing him over a loan to save the company he inherited. As they continue with their ruse, Carson and Ella begin to realise that their feelings towards each other are deeper than what they were expecting. But there are problems to overcome; the fact that they live in different states and then there's Carson's inheritance. Will he be willing to forego that to follow Ella or will she be willing to relinquish her dream of becoming an Oscar winning actress?
I loved this story. Once again Ms Black has given her readers a story that they can really sink their teeth into. This is definitely one that I didn't put down, reading it in one straight session. If you love Shayla Black, then you will definitely love this one. A highly recommended read.
