Shopping for A Billionaire’s Honeymoon (Book 11 in the Shopping series)
Author: Julia Kent
Release date: January 31, 2017
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance

He is addicted to his phone and his new role as CEO. I’m addicted to getting some on my own honeymoon.

One of these things is not like the other.

I am pretty sure a serial killer’s lair is the only place in the world where I could stash my new husband so he can’t manage the acquisition of our new company.

And that seems a little drastic.

But only a little...

All I want is one week alone with him. Hours in bed, legs tangled together in ecstasy, room service and long walks on the beach in Hawaii.

Not vying for his kisses around a Bluetooth microphone. The Borg aren’t sexy in real life.

So I’m taking matters into my own hands and hitting “reboot” on our honeymoon.

We’re going to a place so remote that no one can find us.

Not even my mother.

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon is now a full-length book of 150+ pages, with both Shannon and Declan’s points of view. Originally published with only Shannon’s viewpoint, this expanded edition is a result of reader feedback. People wanted to know what Declan was up to – so here you go. This book is meant to be read after Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife and/or Shopping for a CEO’s Fiancée, but if you read it out of order (or even as a standalone), that’s fine. Shannon and Declan forgive you. ;)

I can’t describe in words how much I love this series and to have Declan and Shannon’s stories continue on after the wedding was like a dream come true.

The one thing with this series and with Julia Kent as an author is you know you are going to have a big grin on your face most of the time you are reading.  These stories keep getting better and better.
In this book, we see Declan and Shannon heading off to their dream honeymoon in Hawaii, lovely tranquil place, no phones, and no work disruptions; well you would think that wouldn’t you???  No such luck.  

I must admit there were times I could have slapped Declan and felt so sorry for Shannon.
There is one particular part which I thought was hysterical and semi spoilerish. This is where Declan injects Shannon with the EpiPen thinking she was stung by a bee, the hilarity is after she is stung and the way she acts, honestly, I was laughing out loud at this girl.

After constant disruptions from Declan’s’ phone, the hotel staff doing everything they can to suck up to them on his honeymoon poor Shannon is ready to give up and go home.  She does though have a great idea and between Shannon and Grace they put a plan into action which would enable Shannon to have Declan phone free and all to herself for the rest of the honeymoon.  Simple you say, well not quite….. as with all Julia Kent’s books in this series, something always happens, however on this occasion, it was not only Shannon that suffers but also Declan, which in itself is seriously funny.
I am on tender hooks until the next book in this series.  

I can testify that if you have not started this series you really should, Julia Kent is a gifted writer, funny, emotional, but also sexy.   Please keep writing these stories Julia, I love them.



Let’s do an inventory of this fine day. My day-after-I-got-married day. In Vegas.
After fleeing my Momzilla mother.
Today is supposed be Day One of my honeymoon after marrying the billionaire of my dreams.
(Let’s not count the night before).
Woke up to the lovely sight of my husband’s tousled dark hair sliding down my torso so he could feast on me for breakfast.
Had actual breakfast in bed after room service delivered mixed berries, cream, bacon, and maple-soaked carrot-cake french toast, and the best damn coffee on the planet from the coffee chain I now own.
Made love with my delightful husband in the giant jetted bathtub in our suite. Turns out I’m as bendy as a Cirque du Soleil performer when I need to be. Maybe Mom’s insistence that I attend all those yoga classes she teaches has a silver lining after all.
Dressed and prepared to hop the corporate jet for Hawaii, kisses interspersed between readying ourselves for the trip. Undressed twice. Dressed twice. Declan insisted I not wear panties for the plane trip.
“But I’m already a member of the Mile High Club,” I’d protested.
“Not as a wife.”
He had a point.
Panties abandoned.
Found his brother, my best friend, a former colleague and an Anterdec chauffeur all married to each other.
Notice something a little different about that last one?
Yeah. Me too.
Day One of my honeymoon had promise, but now? Now it’s a little too real.
We’re on the plane, settling into our seats, and I’m doing my best not to think about my poor best friend and her chaotic mess back at the Anterdec resort where Declan and I just spent nearly a week trying to figure out our entire life.
Which we did, successfully, to my utter surprise. After fleeing our wedding in a helicopter and lying to my Momzilla mother, we managed to get to Las Vegas, ensconced in a resort on the Vegas Strip that Declan had designed himself as an intern in college. By the time my crazy family caught up to us, we’d steeled ourselves for the inevitable fallout.
And got so much more than we expected, in more ways than one. We’re married now. Husband and wife.
That’s really all that matters.
That, and honeymoon sex.
Lots and lots and lots of honeymoon sex. It’s my wifely right to walk funny for the next few days.
And his husbandly duty to make it so.
