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
הספר הזה כל כך מפוספס. איזו אכזבה.
בספר הזה שאנון ודאקלן בורחים מהחתונה שמארי, אמא של שאנון, אירגנה להם. הם נמלטים במסוק עם טיס רוסי, כשאמא של שאנון מנסה לקעקע את המסוק ומתראיינת לכל ערוצי החדשות על החטיפה של בתה ע"י המליונר.

ואז דאקלן לוקח את שאנון לאתר נופש ששיך למשפחתו בווגאס וכל המשפחה רודפת אחריהם מה שמוביל לסיטואציות הזויות ומשעשעות אבל...זה כל מה שיש בספר הזה. סיטואציות משעשעות, אקראיות שטובעות במריבות של שאנון ודאקלן על...כסף.

כאילו מה לעזאזל חושבת לעצמה בחורה שמתחתנת עם מליונר, שהוא ירצה ש

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 Dee - 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

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

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

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.

Love this series!

Once again Julia had me getting strange looks while I laughed out loud reading this installment of the Shopping series. Declan and Shannon have their serious moments in this book as well. I love the recurring players in the books. Julia knows how to keep you wondering what crazy things are going to happen next all while you laugh and maybe even cry a little.
