Description

Who needs a SWAT team to escape from their own wedding? Me. 

My Momzilla turned us into hostages at our own ceremony, so Declan and I are getting married the good old-fashioned way, just like everybody else.

By calling in his private security team, stealing away before the ceremony by helicopter, connecting to his corporate jet and heading for Las Vegas.

The Boston wedding of the year is about to become a trashy Elvis drive-thru ceremony. 

Until the best man spills the beans and Mom, Dad, my sisters, his brothers, my maid of honor, my friend Josh, and even my cat, Chuckles, all come along for the ride.

I can’t win, can I?

Oh. Yeah. I already did. 

Love conquers all.

Even my crazy family.

Shopping for a Billionaire's Wife is the 8th book in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire series. After Declan convinces Shannon to escape from their own wedding minutes before the ceremony begins, the madcap adventures are just getting started. When the mother of the bride pries their location out of the tortured best man, the whole crazy crew follows the bride and groom to Las Vegas in this romantic comedy from Julia Kent.

    I am, and have been a fan of Julia Kent since reading her Random Acts series, at least the first four books of the series. There is so many facets of her writing that that makes her books stand out. Among them are: outrageously funny, her way of making the reader feel like they know the characters personally, the outrageous circumstances the characters find themselves in and the wit she she uses to tie it all together. I would highly recommend her books to anyone who needs to laugh.

    Just completed this novel. I found it to be hilarious in places, laughing so hard that I had to lay my iPad down! This book is for the more mature reader, but anyone who knows of someone or they themselves has experienced some of the same quirky things that happened, will get a kick out of. Wouldn't mind reading more books like this! LaMar

    This is by far the worse out of all the books. I hate Marie she's so obnoxious, what was once cute and funny just seems way over the top and not believable. The entire spa chapters were unbelievably stupid. I wish I hadn't purchased the follow up books thinking they would be as good as the first 5 I'm seriously disappointed! ZERO STARS IF I COULD

    I enjoyed the previous books as they were entertaining and funny. I was expecting something of a same for Shanon & Declan finally getting married but I am a little disappointed and felt the story was all over the place.

    Another amazingly zany story in the life of our favorite Shopping characters!! Making this story even better was being to actually meet The Julia Kent at this weekends NSAS book event. She's as amazing a person as she is a talk enter author. Don't miss the continuation of Declan, Shannon and the crews next journey.
  • Shannon, Declan, and VEGAS!!

    Will the wedding that wasn't become the Sin City elopement that never happens? This installment in the "Shopping for a Billionaire" series starts right where "Shopping for a CEO" left off. And it's back to Shannon and Declan's excellent adventure. After the all the misunderstandings, emergency room visits, near-death experiences, and crazy family shenanigans, it's time for Declan and Shannon to have the happy ending they deserve. Just when you think running off to Vegas is going to get them to the altar, the mayhem follows right along. If you've been on this rollercoaster since the beginning you will not be disappointed. Once again, Ms. Kent has written an engaging, sexy, laugh-out-loud story. And if the ending is any indication, there's more to come! ***An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review***

    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 crazy Momzilla are the major driving forces for Shannon and Declan trying to navigate a relationship that appears to be based on appearances, money, excess and Declan’s unrealistic expectations to justify his billionaire lifestyle. While Shannon is confused as to just what kind of wife she needs to be for Declan when they marry, you will cringe for her at the outrageous actions of her mother’s Momzilla behavior. The underlying mishaps and miscommunications fuel this couple’s humorous passage into the world of coffee cheaters, the taboo, the draw of Las Vegas, sex toys, and unimaginable “spa” treatments. You can’t help but giggle at the competitiveness between Andrew and Declan, feel the heartfelt love Declan has for Shannon and envy the bond that they ultimately share when they finally discover how their lives will be combined. There is so much more to enjoy in this story that includes their families, friends, and even complete strangers. To completely appreciate and understand Shannon and Declan’s journey, you need to read the entire series. I loved it and can’t wait to see what Julie Kent comes up with next!
