We skipped right over the whole fiancée thing and went straight from girlfriend to wife. At least, I think that's what happened. I woke up after my brother's Vegas wedding reception with my luscious girlfriend in bed with me. We're both wearing wedding rings.
So is her coworker, Josh.
And our Vegas chauffeur, Geordi.
Who the hell am I married to?
Unraveling this mystery will be as difficult as figuring out why Amanda and I are having panic attacks over the thought of being husband and wife.
It's true that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, with one exception:
If she's my wife, we'll make it work.
If she's not? I'll make it happen.
Get the ninth book in Julia Kent's New York Times best-selling romantic comedy series as Andrew and Amanda sort out their wild Vegas night...and the rest of their lives.

This is a brilliant book which I have read a few times before and shouted. Sebastian York's voice took it to a whole other level. I would happily listen to the dictionary read by him!
"Fun Quirky Romance"
This full-length, standalone audiobook with no cliffhanger was full of humor and heart. Although it is obvious that the past events mentioned were in previous installments of this series, there is not the necessity to have listened to the previous ones. (Though, they are all great, and I recommend them.) Sebastian York brought all the characters to life and did an excellent job making an already entertaining read, a fabulous listen. Totally worth a credit or cash.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
"I'm in love with Andrew McCormick"
This is one of my favorite audiobooks from Julia Kent's Shopping series. Sebastian York *is* Andrew McCormick! His narration matched the voices in my head, down to the last character's inflection and tone of voice. This book continues in the same vein as the previous books, blending quirky humor and outrageously funny scenes with emotionally charged moments that make you fall in love with "being in love" every single time. Kent and York get my vote for best rom/com author/narrator duo!
Park the car and finish your beverage before listening to the scene where Professor Victoria Kensley-Wentingham from Boston University fits Andrew for a historically accurate Jane Austen-ish costume to court Amanda. Between York's impersonation of the professor and Kent's depiction of Andrew trying on Regency-era trousers (especially Vince's entrance and the "tweezers" reference), you will laugh out loud until you cry.
I loved York's interpretation of Andrew McCormick because he brought emotional depth, humility and sensitivity to a classic Type A alpha male. It could be easy to dislike Andrew for his arrogance and superior attitude, but York shatters the stereotype with his nuanced narration, thanks in large part to Kent's well-written characterization.
In many romance novels, it is the heroine who is depicted as emotionally vulnerable. I loved that Andrew is the one risking it all for love in this book. While this book and this series are first and foremost romantic comedy, Kent always gives readers an emotional wallop that leaves them dazzled.
This book is best enjoyed as part of the series so that readers understand the history of the characters and the progression of the interpersonal relationships. A "must enjoy" audiobook recommendation!
"Another Great Romantic Comedy!!!"
I'm a big fan of Julia Kent and absolutely love her stories. I have listened to several of her books and they are just so funny!
The narrator was outstanding! He brought the story to life. Just make sure to be cautious if drinking/eating anything while listening because you might regret having anything in your mouth. I was laughing so hard at times!!!
This is without a doubt one of my favorite series. It really helps to start from book 1 if you want to understand each character well. You will not regret it. It is definitely worth the money. And there are no cliffhangers in this book.
**This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion**
This was such a fund read. Just the right mixture of seduction and laughter.
"ANDREW DOES'N'T KNOW HOW TO 'COURT'"
In Shopping for a CEO Andrew and Amanda start dating. This book starts the day after Declan and Shannon's wedding which is Shopping for a billionaires wife. This is Andrew and Amanda's courtship. It's very funny you'll enjoy it.
I love Sebastian York's delivery of humor...he's the best.
Julie I wish you would put your novella's into a box set. You could do duet box sets. I need at least a 7 hour book for a credit. Anyway I'm enjoying the books I've purchased.
Absolutely worth a credit/$$ if it's 7+ hours.
"Way Too Much Sex"
I got this book via audiobook boom. There was way too much sex in this book. The story was a secondary character and the sex played the starring role. I have read several of these books and did not realize how prominent the sex was. So if you want to learn some more things about sex listen to this one. Not sure about the brother's dynamics or the relationship with the father. But there was a lot of strong language and sex.
"Andrew & Amanda"
That Andrew and Amanda finally got their S@&T together and they make such a beautiful couple.
Don't don't have favourites characters in this series, I love them all equally
Ok, so I'm not going to be very popular saying this but.....reading this book was way funnier then the audiobook, I don't think SebYork (with all due respect) made this book as animated and funny as it really is. I'm a big fan of his work but comedy or maybe just this book, was not one of my favourites with him narrating. I enjoy his performance most when his does romantic suspense, even general romance books with some clever and witty one liners. I'm not saying I hated it I did enjoy it, but it's not my favorite.
Julia Kent is still my Rom-Com queen
A little chaffing and a lot of loving 😜
Looking forward to whatever comes next in this series.
"This Series of books is so entertaining"
I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I love listening to these books. The author is so entertaining. She has quick wit and a great sense of humor. The other books by Julia Kent have been narrated by a woman. This one was by a man. He does a great job. Wasn't sure I would like it, but he does each character wonderfully. Each book seems to be a standalone, except that each of the characters are mentioned in her other books. She does give a bit of background throughout that is helpful, since it was been a while since I listed to the last book. Julia Kent's books are so entertaining. She is a delightful author.
"5 Shopping for a CEO's Fiancée Stars"
I enjoyed the heck out of this series. I had some wonderful laughs some sad moments some thoughtful moments but mostly the laughs.
I loved the first Andrew and Amanda book soooo much probably one of my most favorites if I am being honest… But this one.. yeah this one tops all of them I loved it. Everything comes together and the laughs oh lordy be!
I know Andrew is more of the serious fella but I love that he finds himself in these pickles and just takes it in stride. He doesn't really over think it he just has his people help him get out of the mess. Ha ha..
And no one could be more perfect for him than Amanda. She balances out his crazy. Even if she is a little nutty herself. ;)
I really enjoyed getting to know Declan and Andrews older brother, I would like to see a book with him in it next I think.
Omg the narration… Sebastian York I have said it before and I will say it again.. Grade A stuff right there.. And he even says Pam like a lot cause it’s a character.. Yeah it’s the small things don’t judge me. :p
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
"Even Sebastian couldn't save this for me!"
I didn't realize this was book 9 of the series. No wonder I didn't know what was going on, not knowing any of the characters. This was my first read of the 10-book series. I thought it was going to be a fun Vegas read but it was too silly. The only saving grace was SY as the sole narrator. I made it to chapter 5 but the story line continued to get worse. I couldn't handle any more of the "Cheeto" reference. Gross!
