Chocolate dildos, a topless establishment, coffee cheating, two veeery competitive brothers and elopement from the society wedding of the century.

This book was truly the best one yet. So hilariously entertaining that my coworkers constantly poked their heads in my door to see what was so funny.

4.5 stars. Possibly even a full 5 stars:-)

3.5 Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife Stars

I have so many mixed feeling about this book.

I really enjoyed this series. I found it funny and witty and charming. A great story, this book just wasn't my favorite and that’s ok.

Shannon and Declan flee their wedding because of Momzilla, and they end up in Vegas. Predictable … hells no. ha ha

This book was funny, witty and charming like I said before. We still have the same feel as the other books, which is something I was happy about. I just felt it

I am going to be honest I really didn't know what to expect. After reading the previous book I wasn't even sure I wanted to continue this series mainly because of Marie aka the Momzilla x 2 !
Despite Marie's antics I preordered this books because I really wanted to witness Declan and Shannon's HEA. I must say am happy I decided to continue, in this book we have the the runaway couple leaving mainy Marie aka momzilla and "her wedding" totally blindsiding her and over 1000 guest as they fly away b

Loved it! This book was so funny at times that giggling out loud was called for. It was also sad when Declan & Shannon got their wires crossed. Loved the big chase to Vegas & her crazy mother. Definitely recommend.
Kathryn at CLiK Book Blog
As always, Julia Kent delivers a seriously funny, sexy and at times, emotionally moving story of Declan and Shannon's tempestuous love story.

Add in a crazed Momzilla, the nemesis from hell, a sex starved bestie with a serious crush on the grooms brother, a cat with attitude as well as a menagerie of other animals plus a cast of over 1000........ And the President..... Well you can guess that this is a rollicking good read.

Must be read in sequence..... You'd be crazy not to read the previous 7 b
Well, then. I got bored reading this. Towards the end I felt like skipping parts, which is not a good sign at all. I think these novels should have been left as short stories rather than made into a full length one. I do like the story of Shannon and Declan but the books now appear to have a lot more unnecessary rambling.

I couldn’t connect to this one as much as I would have wanted to.
It did deal with some good and important aspects of Shannon’s and Declan’s lives, but it still felt a little flat for me.
Also, I didn’t find this book to be funny. I really missed laughing out loud with this one.
But, the ending. Priceless. The ending made me snort with laughter so much. I can’t wait to find out how it will all turn out 😂😂

Julia Kent is back with book 8 of the "Shopping for a Billionaire" series. She has brought back the laugh till your are crying story as well as bringing in a very insightful side that hasn't really been seen in any of the novels. A great mix for this novel.

Last we saw of Shannon and Declan, they were helicoptering away from their, rather Marie's, wedding. Marie was going beyond crazy, Amanda saved two dogs and Chuckles from drowning, Andrew saved Amanda from drowning after getting stuc

A Billionaire’s lifestyle is like no other!

Up until now, we have been entertained with Shannon’s clumsy and awkward introduction to Declan and their roller coaster ride into a sexy, loving relationship. This latest installment of this captivating series is the best yet. The story is witty, hilarious, and descriptively brilliant. Julia Kent continues to take you on a voyage of unimaginable experiences that brings out the angst in all of us. A wedding nightmare, a run away bride and groom, and a c

This is the latest book from Julia Kent telling the story of Shannon and Declan who met in a men's toilet while she had her hand down the bowl. If you haven't read it go there (and all the books in between) before you read this. You won't regret it.

This book is so different to those before it. There is so much more revealed about the characters and their feelings. The character development is immense and we see so much more of the emotional side of Declan that is usually a blank surface. The bac

Hurray! Julia Kent is back, bringing with her three-foot-long chocolate penises, cones of shame, and tethticleth galore to once again have us laughing out loud so much that people start to look at us funny! Julia Kent’s characters are so fully developed and well rounded and just real. The characters in this book are absolutely magnetic and you can’t help but be drawn into their lives. You can’t help but root for their HEA. After escaping the wedding, Declan and Shannon have their hands full when ...more

Book 8 is finally here!! *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

Shopping for a Billionaire's Wife picks up where Shopping for a CEO leaves off. Shannon and Declan are running from Momzilla and quite possibly the most ostentatious and ridiculous wedding ever planned! They escape to Vegas but of course nothing with these two is ever that easy.

What I love so much about this series is the laughter you are guaranteed to get at every turn. This book had me laughing out loud at so many pa

Julia...I have no clue how you do it. But you do it so well.

Declan of course only has one main priority...he is a man ;-) But he you can't help but love him. If only we could all have a Declan.

Shannon is a Scottish bog of emotions.

Marie is a Black Hole with all kinds of little sharp unnoticeable objects surrounding it that you can't help but be sucked in.

Their business is everyones business, lol.

You just have to read to find out how it all makes for a very fun, emotional, roller coaster of a

Dayreader Kim's Review:
Declan was brought up with money and didn't want for anything.
Shannon grew up middle class.
They love each other very much, however, the battle over money as newlyweds is a major issue.
He wants to spoil her and she hates it.
She doesn't understand how he can continually spend money like it is water.

This was number eight in Julia Kent’s ever popular series, and it was quite humorous. I liked the story and the author.
Although it is part of a series, it was very easy to re

I don't know how it is possible, but every new book in this series is better than the last. But this book is my favorite (so far)

There is so much going on in this book & it deals with underlying "issues" that have been brewing since the beginning of the series. All of those things come to a head & are dealt with beautifully. I can honestly say that in true Julia fashion I laughed so hard I cried, I had to google stuff I thought couldn't possibly be real & I found myself tearing up o

Another Julia Kent success! Buy the book, sit down, relax, and enjoy. There is so much angst, tears, laughter, and above all love in this story about Declan and Shannon. I have read all of Julia Kent's books and I don't even worry about reading the blurb prior to buying them, because she always entertains with her wit and writing. So now we patiently wait for her next book, because I know that it will be as good, if not better, than the last book. Thank you Julia for sharing your gift with your ...more

I can never enough of Julia Kent!

Holy cow! I love this book. I love this series. And love the author. You will not be disappointed! But fair warning, don't read when you're supposed to be going to bed.... you won't get much sleep. I, for sure, woke my hubby laughing and crying from laughing, and very little sleep. Shannon and Declan are great, such good dynamics together, cute, and a sexy couple. Now we're have her beasties and his brother up to antics! Ha! Bring it on, I can't wait for the next

Loved this hair raising fun filled wedding, Declan and Shannon are one of my all time favorite couples. Family and friends are just a few of the obstacles in this crazy wedding course they have to run through. Loved every action packed moment.

If you are looking for a laugh out load fun filled family romance with lots of heat then look no further this is most undeniably what you are looking to read.

Another Hit Julia Kent

Definitely a 5 Star must read by Julia Kent.
I have read the entire series and I think this book tops the rest by far. I laughed, to the point of embarrassment, I cried, I wanted more, I could feel their emotion!
Julia I'm not sure where you get some of the totally crazy ideas you write but keep up the fantastic work I can't wait for the next book
Sep 29, 2016 rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition

This is a story you read just for entertainment value alone, however it was the most absurd story. This writer is all about wise cracks, crazy internal dialogue, description & dragging the story out with avoidance, arguments & debates. The actual story is probably only 1/4 of the book. Not for me.

actual rating: 2.5 stars

After Shannon and Declan eloped in a helicopter the day of their wedding, things have been messy yet entertaining to say the least. They left Amanda, Andrew and their fathers to take care of the aftermath and, I cannot emphasise enough, the wrath of Marie.

Marie was super overwhelming and overbearing the entire book. I skipped most of her parts because she was just being really annoying and unaccepting. She kept thinking about herself and never placed herself in Shannon’s

Mixed Emotions

As usual, a brilliant job by Julia Kent. This one came with a bag of mixed emotions. What can I say, kudos Julia. Thoroughly enjoyed it. What now? Moving on to the next book in the series.

This one was really hard to get through. It had the trademark humor but it got lost in some lot of angst. There were a couple of truly serious moments that added depth the other books in the series didn't have. If she gets the balance right, this would be a stellar series.

Another funny installment and finally Declan and Shannon are hitched! This book actually discusses the class differences between them with both seriousness and humor as they waffle in the middle about whether they are ultimately compatible
