Summary

Ever meet a hot billionaire while your hand's in a toilet in the men's room of one of his stores? No? So it really is just me. Hmm.

When you're a mystery shopper, you get paid to humiliate yourself, all in the name of improving customer service. Romance isn't in my job description. But the day I met Declan McCormick it was love at first flush. Until I nearly castrated him with my EpiPen.

How Hot Guy and Toilet Girl became an item involves my crazy mom, a trip to the ER, my homicidal cat, my fake wife, and true love.

Don't look at me like that. I'm just doing my job. I'm shopping for a billionaire.

The Shopping for a Billionaire collection from New York Times best-selling author Julia Kent is a hilarious romantic comedy with heart, heat, and laughs. This boxed set contains the previously published Shopping for a Billionaire 1, Shopping for a Billionaire 2, Shopping for a Billionaire 3, Shopping for a Billionaire 4, and Christmas Shopping for a Billionaire.

Hilarious

I found the 'Shopping For A Billionaire' complete collection an amazing and hilarious listen. Julia Kent knows how to write funny, and sets up our hero and heroine into ridiculous, funny and often excruciatingly awkward situations.

Shannon is the hapless secret shopper who seems to go from one funny mistake, to the next - while Declan is swept up in all the mayhem. Shannon was such a likeable character. She was funny, endearing and also strong. Declan was more of a straight-forward, charming person, who falls head-over-heals for the accident prone Shannon. Alongside these two, are many other fun and hilarious characters that added greatly to my love and joy of this story.

While this is strongly a comedy story, at the core is a love story that has heart and heat, and a strong dash of romance.

The narration was spot on. Really well done.

Hilariously funny

Well unusually these books feature a lady that is not whippet thin. More importantly it is so amusing I found myself smiling frequently during the narration. It’s quite a convoluted story over the books but somehow ends with a happy ever after!
I received a free copy of this in a promotion the author ran for a short time earlier this year.

The humour is so forced

Bad writing, weak plot and forced humour. So many WTF moments! The narrator tried her best but you know the saying "you can't polish a turd". *Silver lining* I do like the fact the character is a plus size woman and that the story doesn't focus on her weight or changing her physical appearance in order to win the guy.

Packed full of weird and wonderful characters 🤣🤣

Where do I start?? This story has everything going for it from outrageous but funny characters, the most unlikely first meeting a couple could ever have and don't forget a psycho cat! One of my favourite parts was when they get to pick a company car 😫 I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and can't wait to listen to the rest of the series. Excellent narration really added to my enjoyment. Deserves more than 5 stars and I heartily recommend everyone to listen or read this series ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I`m sore from laughing

If you could sum up Shopping for a Billionaire in three words, what would they be?

Freaking hilariously brilliant

What other book might you compare Shopping for a Billionaire to and why?

None that I can think of, this series proudly stands alone.
I originally read this over a year ago and loved it, had to snap up the audiobooks when they had been included in the boxset.

Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

Shannon, dear lord she had me laughing so hard that not only did my sides hurt but so did my cheeks.
Tanya Eby, after listening to you in this series I couldn't think of anyone better to narrate Julia`s brilliant sense of humour. You have a fan girl that will be stalking you and all your future work.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Has many, far to many to mention and just as many that made me look strange while laughing out loud in public

Any additional comments?

Julia Kent, I hold firm in my belief that you are one of my favourite rom-com authors, thank you for making me laugh.
And Tanya, I`m not sure if it would have been as funny, so real if it wasn't for your talent so thank you

Narration was great but the story was fabulous! I remember reading this a while back so when I saw the opportunity to listen to the entire box set of course I jumped at the chance!

Shopping for a Billionaire

A cute story with wonderful characters and a witty female lead had me consistently laughing out loud. So good that once I finished one book I HAD to continue on to the next! Adding Julia Kent to my favorite authors list.

Shopping for a Billionaire

This book has it all. A love story with sex, sadness, humor and a mother named Marie. I laughed out loud several times. I plan on reading the whole series. The narrator is awesome. Thanks to the author for making me laugh out loud. Definitely worth buying.

Wordy

Way too wordy. The main character went on and on with the conversations in her head. I just wanted to say "shut up" and talk with the guy. Too insecure, wouldn't stand up to her meddling mom. Couldn't finish it.
