Review: Shopping for a CEO by Julia Kent

Shopping for a CEO by Julia Kent
(Shopping for a Billionaire #7)
September 29, 2015
Genre: Romantic Comedy 18+
Contains: sex, language

I’m thrilled to be the maid of honor in my friend’s wedding, but the best man, Andrew McCormick, is a chauvinistic pig with a God complex.

And I can’t stop kissing him in closets.

(Don’t ask.)

He’s the brother of the groom and the CEO of my biggest mystery shopping account, but suddenly he’s refusing to be in the wedding. He won’t talk about it. Won’t see reason.

He’s such a man.

And he still won’t stop kissing me in random closets.

(Thank goodness.)

I’m a fixer. That’s what I do. I can fix anything if given the chance. But when the game is fixed there’s only so much I can do.

The ball’s in his court now.

Game on.

Shopping for a CEO is the 7th book in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Shopping series. When CEO Andrew McCormick and mystery shopper Amanda Harrington find themselves in the unlikely position as maid of honor and best man in the Boston society wedding of the year, an undeniable attraction and dual stubborn streaks add fuel to the fire in this romantic comedy from Julia Kent.

I loved Amanda and Andrew. I knew their story would have relationship ups and downs. Considering Andrew's family's traumatic past and what we learn about Amanda's past, you know there are going to be bumps in the road. But I was okay with that. I didn't want their complicated problems easily solved. I liked seeing them work for their love. But it's not all difficulty. Not even close. Amanda and Andrew are a wonderful couple, with humor and consideration and sweetness and loads of sexiness all over the place.

But Marie, oh Marie, truly drove me nuts after a while. The crazy wedding planning fiasco was so over-the-top that, though there were fun moments, I just felt so incredibly frustrated on Shannon's behalf, that it detracted from my complete enjoyment of this story. Good thing I still love Declan and Shannon.

I did love the ending with Amanda and Andrew together. The build-up of their relationship, the obstacles they had to overcome, all to get to their brilliant final moments, really touched me. I'm looking forward to more of them in this series.

  1. This sounds like a really good read. I like books centered around weddings (guilty pleasure). Andrew and Amanda sound like my kind of couple.
