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?


Witty, fun and downright sexy! With the fourth book in the Misadventures series, Shayla Black takes us on a fun jaunt towards happily ever after with a fake it till you make it love story. The plot was easy to get drawn into and the characters were a fun combination!

Carson Frost finds himself in quite the conundrum after inheriting his father’s struggling business. He has to make a deal with the devil, AKA his father’s greatest rival, in order to stay above water long enough to get the company back in good standing … but his end of the bargain is marrying his rival’s daughter. The closer he gets to dooms day, the more convinced he is that it’s a huge mistake, so he is left with no other option than to come up with Plan B!

Ella Hope is a struggling actress and more than happy to get the promise of a job, but when she learns she’s supposed to be playing the woman Carson says he fell in love with in order to get out of marrying his fiance, she’s not so sure they can pull this off! When playing make-believe starts to feel all too real, will they be able to get the deal done with their hearts still intact?
