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.

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

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

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

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

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 Reviews
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

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

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.

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

Shannon and Declan are in the helicopter watching the wedding guests disappear from sight as they head to Vegas to be wed.

Julia Kent hits another one out of the ballpark with the 8th book in this series! The story picks up with our heroine, Shannon and her ever thoughtful groom-to-be (and our Hero) Declan, fleeing their "over-the-top" Scottish-themed wedding ceremony that was planned by her Momzilla mother, Marie. Because there was so much of the press invited to the ceremony, their wild escape by helicopter, makes headline news around the world! The reader is a "fly on the wall" listening to sometimes giddy, somet ...more

I think this was my favorite of the series so far.

After Declan and Shannon's meeting in the first book, they are finally getting married. Or at least that's the plan. But when the stresses of their failed first attempt finally catch up to them, it seems to be just too much to deal with. Since landing in Vegas, they are dealing with a very irate mother of the bride. Marie is insisting Shannon apologize for escaping her (Marie's) wedding, Declan's father is thrilled about all the positive press t

I Loved it! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I love all of Julia Kent's books and this is no exception. The whole series is amazing but this book is special. We are all expecting Declan and Shannon's wedding and believe me that is momentous but this book is so much more. We have a glimpse into the protagonist's most inner thoughts, fears as well as their hung ups while at the same time we get to enjoy their hilarious reactions, misunderstandings and silly competitions.

I was given this book to review with an honest opinion.

Julia you have done it again, Shannon and Declan have gone through so much with Momzilla, so they had to escape, but it doesn't take her long to find them in Las Vegas.
Sex Toy shows, chocolate penises, this book has the lot and more. The 8th book in this series has as many laughs (crying tears of laughter that is) as the previous ones but we also got to meet the characters on a deeper level.

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!

Another amazing and fun book from Julia Kent! I fell in love with Shannon and Declan from the beginning. Seeing how their characters have developed and morphed into an amazing couple has been great privilege. I enjoyed watching them run away from their crazy wedding and find themselves as a couple.

Julia has done it again!!! The roller-coaster ride that was this book is equal to some of the biggest rides I have ever been on. I laughed until I cried, and cried until I laughed and still there was more to come. It felt so fast paced, yet spanned only a few days....satisfying and still leaving you wanting for the next ride. Her gift with words is absolutely remarkable and her ability to bring modern slang (and make up her own I think lol) leaves me breathless at her talent. There are plenty of ...more

Shannon and Declan are minutes away from the wedding of the century, however, why is she having second thoughts? It's nothing to do with Declan, she know he's the one. Could it be the circus that is her wedding, that she had nothing to do with. When Declan comes to her, almost as if he felt her hesitation, she sees the same look in his eyes.

Julia Kent always knows how to keep her readers laughing. This book is the continuation of Shannon and Declan's ridiculously over the top wedding, planned by her "Momzilla', from which they escape to Las Vegas to do on their own. In true Kent style all sorts of hilarious escapades occur as they try to avoid their families and do things the way they want.

Julia Kent has done it again. The eighth installment of the Shopping for a Billionaire series does not disappoint. All our beloved characters are back, chasing Shannon and Declan to Las Vegas.

This book has all the elements we've come to expect from Shannon and Declan; misunderstandings, brotherly competition, an embarrassing spa visit, a delightfully funny oversharing mother, a sex toy convention, steamy romance, resort cheating, and a seven foot tall teddy bear that doubles as a teletubby.
