This novella originally appeared in A Sweet Life boxed set (all proceeds donated to diabetes research), so if you bought that boxed set you already own this! If you didn't buy that boxed set, here's your chance to read my new series.
When mystery shopper Shannon Jacoby meets billionaire Declan McCormick with her hand down a toilet in the men's room of one of his stores, it's love at first flush in this hilarious new romantic comedy from New York Times best-selling author Julia Kent.

The fact that I couldn't control my laughter at certain points in the story. Warning, this book is not to be read while running as laughing on a treadmill is a health hazard
Shopping for a Billionaire differs from the crowd of romance novels with it's stomach tightening laughter scenes. The blend of comedy and romance is spot on.
Although not the voice I had imagined when I originally read the book, the expressiveness of Tanya Eby's voice especially around Marie and the sheer horror it conveys when she is being inappropriate is priceless!
"What a Hoot!"
Every once in a while I like to listen to something out of my "norm" and this one fit the bill. It is written and narrated very well and is entertaining from beginning to end. Because of the more adult banter between the main characters, it is more of an adult listen. It's definitely worth listening to if you need a laugh.
This is the first in a series of 8 on Audible, so if you don't like cliffhangers I suggest you get all of the books in the series.

"Short, Sweet, and LOL Funny!"
Shopping for a Billionaire was positively laugh out loud funny, and I enjoyed every minute!
For a short story, and the first in a series, it had a natural flow. Julia Kent did an amazing job developing the storyline, and sticking to a few scenes that were well developed, descriptive, and funny. It was easy to visualize, and picture each situation perfectly as they played out.
In addition to perfectly laid out storyline, the characters were likable, which really made the story fun to listen too. Shannon's inter dialogue was clever, witty and just downright funny. When she had an embarrassing moment, you could actually feel it! And Declan McCormick was certainly more than he seemed. I liked his attraction to Shannon and the fact he was not afraid to be forward with her at their work/date dinner.
This is the first story I've listened to narrated by Tanya Eby, and I thought she did a wonderful job! Her voice fit the main character perfectly.

I would have hated myself had I not gotten the Ashton books.. what a cliff hanger starring the next one immediately. I love the sarcastic banter and the intro of the ex. excited to keep listening!!!!
Loved storyline, it was fresh & different.
Dissapointed to realize the cost of the other books in the series for 2-3 hrs of listening, & I see there are 6 books, (so far)...I will not continue the series.
I really liked this book. It was short and light, and has me hooked and ready to read the whole series. I laughed out loud at the situations that the main character gets herself in, and her wit is to-die-for. I so envy people with her type of wit. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book, and I enjoyed the narrator. She fit very well with what I pictured of the character. Her reading felt very "genuine." If you enjoy rom-com, or just need something light to make you laugh, you should check out this book.
"LOVE LOVE LOVE, so cute, and lol funny"
I would listen to this book again and again. It is just so cute, the narration is great and the book is just like hanging with a girlfriend. It is easy and fun!
Oh Tanya is GREAT. I laughed, I smirked and I lauged out loud. She made the characters come to life. She put sarcasm n the right places, pitch changes, and pauses that seemed genuine. Just a great Narrrator.
I loved this book, look I am normally all about the hot and steamy books but man it felt good to just enjoy the characters. I was gifted this book in exchange for my unbiased review and all I can say is the book is great. I want to just snuggle up on the couch with a glass of wine and just listen to the enitre collection!!
"Really Cute Story"
This audiobook was given to me free with an honest review. I really enjoyed this light, romantic, fantasy story. Julia Kent developed a story that is intriguing, sexy, hysterical and down right entertaining. She also hooked me so I bought the next 4 audiobooks, just so I can continue the story. It left me hanging in the end. But what do you expect from an audiobook that is only a few hours long? She does a great job of introducing the characters and is very thorough in their personalities. You really get to know each of them in this short book. Can't wait to start the next story in this series. The narrator is perfect for this story.
"Cute and funny"
That it was so funny and as I used to do secret shopping I could really relate to the heroine.
Shannon cause her inner monolog made me laugh so many times
She brought the story to life for me
I won this audio from the author and was the first book I had ever read by her. I liked this one so much I'm going to use my credit I have to buy the next one. I don't expect it to be the last I listen to by this author
The dialogue and characters are so funny. You just want to be friends with them
Looking forward to next book
"Great short story"
Very funny & well written, I stared reading the book last night but fell asleep that I couldn't wait to find out how it finished. I normally read the books then listen but I couldn't wait for this one. Very good read!!
