I’m a professional chickenblocker.

Except “chicken” is a euphemism.

I get paid to follow a womanizing troglodyte who thinks rules are for other people and that my pants are the next pair he’s getting into.

Dream on.

Bet your first professional job didn’t involve babysitting an extremely hot, muscle-bound Scottish Highlander with an ego the size of a kilt and a libido bigger th

I swear this series just gets better and better!

Now this book can totally be read as a stand-alone, but listen dear followers....Read this whole series to fully immerse yourself in the hilariously, smoking hot goodness that is Julia Kent!

This is Hamish and Amy's story. 

And what a whirlwind, slow burn, chaotic relationship! Forced proximity, heart and head competing for dominance and realizing that you have more in common than you think is at the heart of Hamish and Amy's union.

Hamish comes off a

I really enjoyed Shopping For A Highlander. To be honest I didn’t read the first book in this series, Shopping For A Turkey but I doesn’t feel like I was missing anything and this story read very nicely as a standalone.

Recent MBA graduate, Amy Jacoby is about to start a new job with major growth potential, but there is one big hurdle she has to overcome. She has to try and keep Scottish football star, Hamish McCormack out of trouble.

I’ve been a lover of Julia Kent’s romances since the very first Shopping for a Billionaire, so to read Amy Jacoby and Hamish MacCormick I already had high expectations.

While it took me a minute (or maybe 5 chapters) to love Hamish, I totally loved Amy Jacoby, she’s the youngest sister of the Jacoby girls, a total control freak, and driven. There’s another secret about Amy, but you have to read the book to enjoy that little spoiler.

Hamish and Amy clearly have chemistry, but Amy refuses to acknowl

Shopping for a Highlander ~ Shopping for a Highlander #2 by Julia Kent.
At the beginning of the book they say this can be read as a standalone, yes, I agree and thats how I found Julia back in 2016 with book 10 with Shopping for an Heir.Loved it so much had to purchase the others, and yes I have never looked back.

Julia is one of my top authors, her books just keep getting better and better. I'm amazed by her writting how she draws you in and the characters are so real, that you forget you are rea

After having fallen in love with Hamish from the very first moment we met him, I was very surprised by how much he ticked me off in the beginning of this book. The way Hamish and Amy's story starts here, it could almost have been classified as ‘bully romance’. They certainly embodied all the passion and sparks that characterize enemies-to-lovers stories. But, like nearly every other book the author has given us, there's a deep well of emotion roiling beneath the surface of these characters. Amy ...more

Wow. Squeeeee. Happy Dance.
I loved this book, a brilliant addition to the Shopping series. Julia Kent has done it again :-)
Hamish and Amy have been supporting cast for a while, it is sooooooo good for them to get their time in print.
Hamish is the lovable rogue who thinks with his todge and wants to make every woman happy.
Amy the youngest daughter, who feels the need to control and keep it together, at all times, no exception.
In the past Hamish has always been the wind up merchant and Amy try

I was excited for this one because after reading Shopping for a Turkey I knew I wanted more from Hamish McCormick and Amy Jocoby. Julia Kent always takes me on a wonderful ride with her entertaining tales and her loveable characters and Shopping for a Highlander was everything I have come to expect and so much more.
Right from the start this couple have a love/hate relationship. Amy is given the job of keeping Hamish out of trouble but is she ready for everything Hamish along with his Randy John

I received this arc for an honest review.

Amy and Hamish get their love story!!
What an amazing hate\love story.

Once again Julia you make me smile, laugh, and even a tiny cry when I felt Amy's pain. Hamish and Amy's personalities are so rich, deep, sarcastic, and loving. I feel them while I read this story. You nailed his accent!

Thank you for a wonderful book.

5 star review Shopping For A Highlander (Shopping for a Highlander #2) by Julia Kent   

From the first chapter Julia Kent had me hooked on Hamish McCormick and Amy Jacoby’s story. If there is one thing I know when I start a book by this author, I know I am in for an entertaining read that will have me laughing so much that I will cry.

After reading Shopping for a Turkey, I couldn’t wait to dive into this book. This book was so good. The family and shenanigans were as outrageous as always and made

I'm a long time fan of Julia Kent's work - especially her Shopping for a Billionaire series, it never fails in making me laugh and in today's world, we need all the laughs!!!

First off, have you read Shopping for a Turkey? It's the prequel to this, so most definitely go read it first! Then come back here for more of Hamy? Or is it Aimish? Not sure which works 🤷🏻‍♀️
Either Or, it made me laugh!!...

We have the usual shenanigans of the Jacoby's as well as a tall, handsome, funny Scottish footballer

When you fall in love you give up things that you never thought you would. When Amy gets under Hamish's skin his todger lays low. Amy is closed off, hard working, and Hamish makes her mushy. But she must remain stoic against his flirting. After all he is a player and Amy is not. As Amy works to keep him out of trouble they start to learn more in depth things about each other. But Hamish will have a very hard time to win her heart. This is a flirtatious and fun story with great characters includi ...more

I was so looking forward to this book especially after reading "Shopping for Turkey" in which we get a taste of the chemistry between Amy Jacoby and Hamish McCormick. Amy has been hired to keep Hamish out of trouble, especially scandals of any kind including those that involve his libido and jersey chasers. She is so determined to be successful that she added specific clauses to her contract to make sure that she did not be one of those who gave into his charm. The chemistry is so very much ther ...more

If you have read any of the Shopping series, you already know that Julia Kent brings us not only rom-com, not only her version of slapstick comedy (I mean ANYTHING that Marie does tends to go sideways doesn't it?) but she also brings us heart and often times, a lesson to be learned. Amy is the youngest of the Jacoby family. She is not immune to the chaos that surrounds her family but she also knows how incredibly lucky she is to have all that love and support...no matter what.

And away we go on another laugh out loud, rom-com that makes you want to be part of the Jacoby family forever. I have loved the Jacoby's since Hot Guy and Toilet Girl met and am always amazed that every book is still fresh, funny and absolutely captivating. This is the story of Amy, the youngest of the Jacoby girls and Hamish McCormick, the Scottish cousin to Andrew and Declan McCormick and a pro football (Soccer in the US but nowhere else in the world!) player. Seven years ago, Hamish called Am ...more

If you’re a fan of Julia Kent’s Shopping for a Billionaire series (and really, how could you not be?), then you have been waiting for this book a long time. And I’m here to tell you, it was definitely worth the wait! This book is a master class in how to flawlessly deliver the “enemies to lovers” trope. I have honestly never seen it done better. Everything about this book is systematically designed to draw you in and make you love every single second of it. The writing is deeply heartfelt and la ...more

*** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. ***

This was a story I’ve been looking forward to. It was worth the wait and so much more!
I love this series and when I met Hamish I was already excited to read this story even if it wasn’t on the cards yet.
The witty retorts and memorable quotes totally got me! I smiled so hard it hurt!

Hamish and Amy could bring the best but also the bad in each other. They made me laugh tons, made me swoon a lot and brought the slow burn to another level
LA Loves RomComs
Loved Hamish and Amy's romance! From start to finish, this was a wild ride full of humor, heart and heat, and it's great to keep the Jacoby/McCormick family stories going.

Amy rightfully thinks Hamish is nothing but an overgrown man-child based on his behavior, and Hamish thinks Amy needs to loosen the reins and give up a little bit of control. And they're both right. They've had a push/pull relationship for years, since Shannon and Declan got married and Hamish tried to pick Amy up at the weddi

What can I say?
As always Julia Kent has given us another brilliant book in the Shopping series.
Yes, you can read this as a standalone and, honestly, if you haven't read the series from the beginning this is probably the easiest of the books to do that. But please, do yourself a favour and read from the start of the series and get to know this group of family and friends. Having been thoroughly won over by Declan in the very first book, Hamish had a lot to live up to in my eyes. He wasn't doing t

From first page to last, Julia Kent delivers and entertains in her inimitable style with Book 2 in the Shopping for a Highlander series.

I was already hooked after reading the previous book and all the “shopping” series but Julia Kent upped her game with Hamish McCormick and Amy Jacoby’s story.

I couldn’t wait to dive into this book with all the family and hilarious shenanigans and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Not only was it crack up funny but the

Buckle up, buttercup, because you are not ready for Hamish McCormick! His magnetic charm, insouciant approach to life and outrageous shenanigans will shock you while keeping you in stitches, but this Scottish soccer player's heart is bigger than the Loch Ness monster.

And Amy Jacoby is definitely not ready for Hamish. He flirts with women of any age and basks in the glory of his fame, and Amy had been charged with corralling all that, along with his Randy Johnson. Yes, that's the euphemism you t

Amy & Hamish... From the French kiss that starts the story (yes, a kiss in front of her parents... & in front of her date...), to being a todger babysitter (you can use your imagination for that!).

“I get a kiss for being a decent guy? How good do I have to be to get a shag?”

Amy is hired to be his fat coo in charge of his rogue willie. It’s a lucrative job, so she has to be successful.... & of course, this isn’t going to happen... Since just going for a quick run can easily end in being bloody na

What is happening in Amy's life at the start of the book? How does she know Hamish? Who are Davis and Shannon? Who are they to Amy? Oh, Lordy, not even 1/5th of the way into the story and I could not stop shaking my head. My eyes were like saucers on the flight. Oh my gosh, things got really bad, in a very funny way, once they got to baggage claim when the flight landed. I could not stop laughing. I was crying I was laughing so hard.

Enemies to Lovers
Slow Burn
Forced Proximity

Reverse Grumpy/Sunshine

Shopping for a Highlander is an enemies-to-lovers, slow burn romance that opens with a surprise kiss and ends with a happily ever after. This sports comedy in the New York Times bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire world contains no actual chickens, but it has plenty of locker room scenes, a fake relationship, very real banter, and more.

This story was so much fun to read and I enjoyed every word of it. Hamish and all of this crazy Scottish phrases and words had me cracking me, it was like I was back in Scotland.

Hamish is a Footballer at the top of his game and the endorsements are coming in like crazy. However, he has a reputation of being a ladies man so Amy is hired to watch over him and make sure he stays in line without any more scandals. The two know each other, his cousin married into her family, and also have shared a k

I freaking LOVED this book! Julia Kent has always been one of my go-to reads when I need to put a smile on my face, and her latest masterpiece is no exception.

I couldn’t get enough of flirty Scottish footballer Hamish and his love/hate banter with the tightly wound Amy!

SHOPPING FOR A HIGHLANDER continues Amy and Hamish´s story after the Thanksgiving chaos and takes us along on a fun ride with many hysterical and heart-warming moments that lead to their HEA because what´s more fun than Amy´s new job being Hamish´s cockblocker and making sure he keeps it in his pants while still fighting her own attraction to him! What can go wrong, right?

This story is fun, entertaining, sexy, flirtatious with the right balance of steam and feels. It’s a slow burn enemy to love

amazingly funny and heartfelt

Loved this book , it’s well written and flows logically, can’t wait for the next one in the series. Amy is all sorts of constricted and controlled with a mother who is the exact opposite. She can’t let loose and she is fearful of trust. She has a lot of issues with emotional strangulation. Hamish is impulsive but healthy with feelings. He sometimes doesn’t think things through, but he’s good natured and generous to a flaw. The story gets serious at the end with emoti

Shopping for a Highlander is the second book in the Shopping for a Highlander series (it picks up a few months after Shopping for a Turkey, book #1). They are connected to the Shopping for a Billionaire series and almost all of the former characters are in this series. It can be read as a standalone book, but do yourself a favor and laugh through the whole series. 😂

Amy is the youngest of the Jacoby girls. She is finishing her college degree at the beginning of this book. Hamish is a famous footb
