Product Description


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.

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

Running Mate is a fun, flirty, can't stop turning the page read.
I have been a major fan of Katie Ashley books for sometime but after both Running Mate and Drop Dead Sexy I think she should only write Romantic Comedies. How she managed to make politics funny is beyond me!!
Barrett comes from a upper class, political family, he’s a bit of a manwhore and proud of it. Addison has worked her way up in the political world, had a big set back by trusting the wrong man, and has once again started rebuilding her career by working on Senator Callahan’s presidential campaign.
Senator Callahan is the favourite candidate but not enough that he feels secure he will win the election because of his "a different lady every night” reputation. The plan to help with Barrett’s image... get him a fake fiancé until the election is over! And the perfect candidate - Addison. Barrett and Addison grudgingly go into this fake engagement. But nothing is as it seems on the surface...
You will fall in love with these two characters and watch them grow on the campaign trail. With appearances and mishaps that happen along the way they find that there is more to playing lovers than they expected.
I loved the political side to this book! If only all politics could be this much fun!!!
Getting the dual POV from Barrett and Addison in this story was also a plus as you got to understand both characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed Running Mate by Katie Ashley; it’s sexy, fun and entertaining - a quick, hilarious romance that will leave you smiling!
It's a definite ONE-CLICK!

Running Mate by Katie Ashley was a very funny, clever, sexy, charming, fast-paced, contemporary romcom, with great characters and an engaging plot. I have to admit, reading a book with an American Presidential Campaign as the background wasn't exactly appealing at first (after the 2016 election), but Katie worked it beautifully and it was not the feature (although a little knowledge of the American political system and their 'election caravans' would be of benefit, but it's not necessary).
Addison was a sharp, hardworking, spirited beauty. Hot, egotistical party-boy, Barrett was a liability to his father, Senator James Callahan's, political ambitions. Both Barrett and Addison were very well-developed characters, absolutely gorgeous and easy to take to our hearts, as they haphazardly tripped along with the fake engagement designed to aid the Senator's goals. Gradually, Barrett showed deeper elements to his personality, as time progressed and as the journey unfolded. Addison learnt a lot about herself, life and love. The dual POVs were a real bonus, btw and the secondary characters were solid. The 'created relationship', was the perfect platform for witty banter, crazy predicaments and delightful, but excruciatingly uncomfortable scenes between Barrett and Addison.
What a wonderful way to escape the realities of life by having a good laugh wrapped up in lots of fun situations, balanced by challenges, some drama, touchingly loyal love and moving emotions. Congratulations Katie, you nailed this one!

Barrett the playboy and Addison the choir girl are pushed together to play the media up for his dads presidential campaign but along the way they fall in love but they argue more than teenage siblings and the past rears its ugly head butbit ends with a HEA

It has been a while since I have read a Katie Ashley book (the past couple have been a bit of a miss for me, so I stepped away for a little while)

But she is back to her best with Running Mate.

Running Mate is a light hearted, flirty and sexy story of family doing what they must, especially when it comes to one of them running for President.

Addison and Barrett enter into a fake relationship, but as campaigns progress, so does their relationship, and it is not long before everything fake starts to fell like something more.

I LOVE the bite and snark between our lovelies. Barrett is such an egotistical jackass most of the time, and there were times where, just like our lucky lady Addison, I couldn't help roll my eyes, but with a smile on my face. There is nothing hidden, nothing false about the persona we see. He is what he is. He is cocky and arrogant, but he is also so much more.

Addison is the She is what a woman like me thrives to be. She is smart, funny, articulate and making it (albeit not so well at times) on her own. And with her "Bear" Barrett, you can't help but fall under their spell.

I was also happy to see a cameo of some characters from Ms Ashley's earlier Runaway Train series (albeit a very short cameo!)

There were some great secondary characters that I would love to see more of in the future *cough cough Ty cough cough*.

Now I can't wait to see what Ms Ashley brings us next.

3.5 Stars.

I thought this book was cute and funny. Barrett and Addison are pushed into a fake relationship to help tame Barrett’s image for his Father’s Presidential campaign.

Barrett starts off as your typical manwhore hero, he has a wild personality. Meanwhile, Addison is the kind of heroine that doesn’t take any crap. She puts her all into everything that she loves, which is why she agrees to be Barrett’s fake finance. This is far from an insta-love story. These two don’t get along straight away but since they’ll be together for at least 9 months, they need to learn how to survive being with each other for many hours at a time.

At some points, I thought the characters might be acting a little bit immature. There were a few things that made me pause for a moment but nothing too big that took away from the story. However, I felt like the climax you normally feel while reading a book was missing. But I still think that Running Mate is a good book if you want something that doesn’t involve insta-love and if you want to read a cute romance.
