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.

"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.
"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 was such a fund read. Just the right mixture of seduction and laughter.
"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.
I love this series! I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion. I do think this story would be hard to follow if you have not read the other books even though it is considered a stand alone. Go ahead and start with #1 and enjoy!
from the beginning to the end hilarious all the characters were so funny especially Murray oh my God great great great book kept me laughing duration of the book
"2 words needed- Sebastian York!"
Okay, I admit it...I hadn't read the previous series books. The covers make them look like fluff and "shopping" makes it all seem materialistic. So, when I realized Sebastian York narrated I jumped at the chance to review. Of course he could read medical journals and sound sexy, so you can guess my thoughts of his performance!
The story began with a bang and I had a hard time remembering the characters' relationships, but even then had to laugh out loud at the descriptions. Andrew and Amanda were already in a relationship at the start but there were many misunderstandings and people that came between the two along the way. I will have to check out the rest of the series now. If that's not a positive review I don't know what is.

"Super Fun Rom-Com"
Shopping for a CEO's Fiancé is book #9 in the Shopping For A Billionaire series. It was my first book by this author. It starts out with a whole cast of characters waking up in a Vegas hotel room wearing wedding rings but missing some important memories of the night before.
The book is fun and funny. I could tell that I really missed out on a lot in not reading the previous stories in this series and I think I will have to soon rectify that situation!
I listened to the audiobook of this story expertly narrated by Sebastian York and loved it. He has the best voice and definitely made me swoon and fall in love with Andrew.
