Overview

All of our best dates end up in the emergency room....

I planned the perfect proposal. Plenty of lobster, caviar, champagne and--her favorite--tiramisu. The perfect setting. The perfect woman.

The perfect everything.

Dad gave me my late mother's engagement ring, platinum and diamonds galore. Shannon wouldn't care if I slid a giant hard-candy ring on her finger instead of a three-carat diamond designed to impress. But my future mother-in-law, Marie, will pass out when she sets eyes on that rock, and that will give us two minutes of blessed silence. That woman talks more than Kim Kardashian flashes her naked backside on the internet.

I was going to make it perfect, from the color of the tablecloth to the freshness of the roses.

And it was perfect.

Until Shannon swallowed the ring.

Shopping for a Billionaire's Fiancée gives near-billionaire Declan McCormick the chance to tell his story in this continuation of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire series.

Crazy about this book! And the book's pretty crazy and wild and fun, laugh out loud and shed a few tears. Couldn't put it down, didn't stop to eat. First Julia Kent book I've read and she's definitely on my favorites list now.

This is book # 6 in the Shopping For a Billionaire series. This book should not be read as a standalone. It includes a continuing story line. For reader enjoyment and understanding, please read this fantastic series in order. Declan and Shannon's story goes on with him trying to propose to her. While hijinx ensues, as it always does when dealing with an unusually close family and an interfering mother. Said mother cannot butt out of anything. Yet it tickled the funny bone. Glad she isn't mine. Shannon just tries to go on with her life. Completely unaware of all the background noise that is putting Declan into stress. She is merely trying to navigate a life where she works for her man, and does not want to be known for him helping her get the job. Just as earlier in the series this book is so seriously funny, I must warn the read to be cautious about what you may eat while reading. Prepare for laughter, tears, and angst. Such an amazing read. I cannot wait for the next story in this series.

Julia Kent writes another stomach-ach inducing funny novel in the Shopping for a Billionaire series. This time Declan tells the story from his Point of View it's still as hysterical but also has moments of terribly poignant memories. Declan, within his chapters breaks down the passage of time with Countdown of days till events and of events. Shannon has already undergone a transformation and is more secure in herself due, I'm sure, in part to Declan's love for her as well as her success at her job. Shannon's Mother, Marie, is present in all her Hurricane forced glory. But as whacked out as she is, she does have a really great, touching, and maternal scene. Conversely, Shannon's father, Jason, finally comes face to face with Declan's father, James ... hold on to your hats. Amy, Carol and her sons, Amanda and Andrew are all in attendance. Granted, Declan is a more serious character than Shannon with less patience so his storytelling is a little different - yet no less fun. There are a couple of times when Declan seems somewhat overwhelmed - asking Andrew, his younger brother, to be his best man and the realization that Marie will be his Mother-In-Law. There comes a time when he has no one truly impartial he can talk to except his mother's headstone. It's these moments, when memories of Declan's mother and/or her death that are so beautifully heart-aching and offer a wonderful contrast to the typical crazy hijinks that run rampant in Shannon and Declan's story. The secondary story-line of Andrew and Amanda is incredibly intriguing as well. (Of course, I immediately purchased the next installment - GAH!) It results in some extra drama between Amanda and Andrew - putting Declan in the middle - which ends up leading to him playing a part in two versions of "Why Won't He Call/Why I Won't Call" pity parties ending in a brief but fantastic "Peep Show".

I just love Julia Kent! I have read all her books & her Shopping for a Billionarire's Series is awesome! Love this book! Declan & Shannon are funny & hot all at the same time. If you have read the other books in this series, you know that something is going to go wrong & it does! This book is the POV of Declan & is so funny! I just love what is up in his head. He also has great "nasty" thoughts about Shannon. Which are very hot! You won't be disappointed with this hit from Julia Kent!

I love this one. If you haven't read any of this series then you must, you will laugh so much. Declan and Shannon are great and the cat is a hoot, and Marie Shannon's mother will have you in a fit of laughter. You will fall in love with the whole story. Julia Kent is a great writer. I was given an ARC for an honest review.

There have been a handful of authors that have held my attention on a literary level; Julia Kent is definitely one of them. From the very first book in this series she held my attention and my heart as Declan and Shannon were introduced as two very unlikely characters to interact with one another. As the books in the series continued, I found myself cheering for the possibilities and dreams that each of the characters shared and tried to hold close to themselves. The most amazing aspect of Julia's writing style is that while she writes a lot (HELLO James Patterson) she always manages to keep each story-line from other series separate while adding a little hint from another couple/place/event. She did NOT disappoint in "Shopping for a Billionaire's Fiancee" where she brings in other characters with such fluidity I was literally jumping out of my seat cheering at even the slightest mention of a name or association. It was AWESOME!  I do not want to give anything away because Julia Kent is  a MUST READ author! The romance, suspense, drama and Laugh-out-Loud antics of the characters in the series are so close to home you will swear she was inside your walls watching some part of your own family-time. The Shopping for a Billionaires Series is worth its weight in gold and in time, and you'll enjoy reading it as much as it appears she enjoyed writing it. GO DECLAN and the rest of the crazy clan in this and other books in the series!

Just when I thought I could not possibly love Declan any more than I already did, Julia Kent writes this book and proves me wrong.  I swear this almost billionaire is a man among men.  I always knew he was a great guy, but having this book written from his point of view has added so many layers to this already fascinating character.  You can see that he really loves Shannon to the very core of his soul, and it’s beyond interesting to watch how that love can bring a strong, confident, alpha male like Declan to his knees.  It’s absolutely adorable how he gets so nervous he’s actually almost physically ill before his proposal.  It’s so un-Declan.  His character has grown so much since we first met him... going from a self-centered womanizer to a man who really knows how to love a woman and make her his priority in life.  Shannon is one lucky woman!  And we are really lucky as readers that Julia Kent has brought us this continuation of Shannon and Declan’s love story.  If you haven’t read the rest of the Shopping for a Billionaire series, do so now... immediately, if not sooner.  In this book, Julia has given us a read that is sweet, sexy, funny, enticing, intriguing, and all around incredible.  I would say she’s definitely got another huge hit on her hands.  I can’t wait for Andrew and Amanda’s book!  There’s definitely a story there.   * I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

All of their best dates end up in the emergency room. Shannon doesn't care how much money Declan has all she wants is him! Declan sets up the perfect proposal until Shannon swallows the ring. Julia can tell a story that has you laughing until you're crying. You can't go wrong buying any book by her!

I have loved Declan and Shannon from the very first book...when they were referred to as Toilet Girl and Hot Guy! This book did not disappoint me! It had everything...laughs, a time for tears (this time it was Declan who made me cry!), some sexy times, some anger and oh yes her mother Marie! We do see more of Shannon's father in this book and he makes his presence known! There are some surprises in this book...I will give a hint it involves Andrew!!!! I know you will like that once you read the book to find out what it is! As always nothing goes smoothly for Declan no matter how perfectly he plans things...this thing is his proposal of marriage to Shannon...he has every detail perfect or so he thought and as the book description says...until she swallowed the ring! After that we have scenes that involve a trip to the ER and a poop watch! This book was everything I expected, wanted and more...I can not imagine what will happen next! Thank you Julia Kent for being amazing at what you do! I can not wait to read the next chapter in Declan and Shannon's story and who knows what will happen with Andrew! That could prove to be really really interesting!  I was privileged to receive an ARC copy of this book....

It's Declan's turn!!                                                                                                                                                                        Shopping for a Billionaire's Fiancee continues the story of Shannon and Declan from the Shopping for a Billionaire series. But this time, it's told from Declan's perspective. Declan is going to propose and thinks he has planned the perfect set-up.  But once again, fate, family, friends, and another trip to the ER intervenes. Ms. Kent once again strikes gold. The book manages to be funny, touching, and irreverent.   All I can say is...BRING ON THE WEDDING!! ***An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review***
