Review: Shopping for a Billionaire by Julia Kent

Shopping for a Billionaire by Julia Kent
Boxed Set #1-5
January 9, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Comedy

Ever meet a hot billionaire while your hand's in a toilet in the men's room of one of his stores?

No? So it really is just me. Hmm.

When you're a mystery shopper, you get paid to humiliate yourself, all in the name of improving customer service. Romance isn't in my job description. But the day I met Declan McCormick it was love at first flush.
Until I nearly castrated him with my EpiPen.

How Hot Guy and Toilet Girl became an item involves my crazy mom, a trip to the ER, my homicidal cat, my fake wife, and true love.

Don't look at me like that. I'm just doing my job.

I'm shopping for a billionaire.


The Shopping for a Billionaire collection from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent is a 600+ page, hilarious romantic comedy with heart, heat, and laughs.

This boxed set contains the previously published:
Shopping for a Billionaire 1
Shopping for a Billionaire 2
Shopping for a Billionaire 3
Shopping for a Billionaire 4
Christmas Shopping for a Billionaire

I am so glad that Julia Kent combined these five novellas into this one 'Shopping for a Billionaire' collection. Once I finished one part, I immediately jumped into the next. I stayed up until 3am at one point because I needed a certain situation to resolve and I didn't want to go to sleep until it did. So needless to say, this series hooked me.

If you don't like a lot of humor - and when I say humor, I mean slapstick, awkward, over-the-top comedy - then this might not be for you. But I loved it! The opening scene, where Shannon gets her hand stuck in a men's room toilet sets the series up perfectly. And it just gets crazier from there. Between Shannon's propensity for ending up in crazy situations, to her job as a mystery shopper setting her up for public humiliation, and her family - often times her mother - having limited personal boundaries, Shannon's romantic journey never stood a chance at being "normal." But it was definitely funny!

Then you throw in a sexy "billionaire" who is instantly intrigued by the quirky, "real", beautiful, size 16 Shannon, and this story hit the spot. I loved Shannon and Declan together. He's gorgeous and rich. She's funny and curvy. They have obstacles to overcome, and people blocking their path, but I loved their journey. I especially loved their banter and how great they got along. I loved the way they were in some ridiculous situations and handled it in awkwardly hilarious stride. And I loved their chemistry. It didn't feel forced. I felt their heat coming off the pages as well as their mutual respect and adoration. Declan and Shannon are fantastic. I'm so glad there are more books in this series. Can't wait to read them all!
