I don't turn every date into a medical emergency, but when I do, I nearly castrate my man….
Shannon and Declan's first real date ends with an ambulance trip and yet another test of their madcap relationship. Ex-boyfriend Steve insists on dinner with Shannon while Declan is overseas on business, but a surprise return leads to plenty of romance as Declan whisks her away for a ride over Boston (in more ways than one...).
Just as life and love look good, a misunderstanding takes on a sinister tone as a conspiracy brews to keep them apart.

Oh no, the book ended but the story didn't!!! Waaaa, I want the next part now!!!! In audio, not ebook!!!! I really hate waiting!!!!
The story picks up with that second date for Shannon and Declan. Oh course there will be a catastrophe! That is the life they lead! I am uber clumsy and klutzy myself, I can relate. Events get dramatic quickly.
I love the banter between these two, they feel so natural. It makes for a dynamic relationship. Sigh, I want a billionaire to sweep me away in a limo and a helicopter.
The narrative is all from Shannon's POV still, I do not expect that to change. She is fun and flighty, while more responsible than her family. The supporting cast is, as always, hilarious!!! Such a quirky fun bunch.
Oh yeah, things finally get smexy!!! The bedroom door is open, with just enough naughty detail to warm a girl up. It verges on erotic, but feels more mainstream sexy. Sigh, to be swept away like that!!
There are some angles of this book that bother me. Your jerk ex-boyfriend keeps texting you, do not go out with him. Who cares about that jest, you have a sexy billionaire calling on you. The other conflict, that will spill over into the next book, seems contrived. He does know the nature of her job and things that occur. We shall see how that all turns out.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tanya Eby, who is delightful! She has the perfect tone for the vibe of this book. I love the way she adds energy and sass to the characters. She keeps the story moving right along with her swift pace. Terrific addition of emotions into the voices, especially at key moments. This has been a fabulous blend of story and narration.
This is the place where I am sitting twiddling my thumbs waiting for the last book in the serial. While it has been a delightful read, the sectioned out story is annoying. Having it all in one book would be preferable. I really enjoyed the writing and flow of the storytelling, I will be looking for more of Ms Kent's books, but only if they are all in one or already released.
I do hope this is a series, perhaps giving those billionaire brothers HEA or her BFF and sister finding love. Really fun characters have such potential.

Read/Listen, Review and Recommend!
It started out GRRRRREAT, I was like yay you go Declan & Shannon have their first date.
Only true to form it goes horribly awry and not in the funny way.
But swoon Declan is there to rescue her, thank god.
I am still very much enjoying her mother & father they crack me up something crazy.
The Ex-boyfriend Steve shows his face again. But I am a little confused as to why Shannon is still allowing him in her life at all to be honest. Misguided guilt? I don’t know but I don’t like it.
The limo ride.. Damnnnnn that was yeah awesome!
I also enjoyed the helicopter ride that was pretty cool.
I find myself enjoying each book differently, her family welcoming Declan with open arms, but he still keeps Shannon a little apart from his.
Overall a great installment to this series can’t wait to listen to book 4.
The premise that was cute is now getting old. Please please please be almost done with the series. By now we know Shannon's family is quirky, her ex is a douche and Declan is perfect. Can we please get to the point?
This is my absolutely the BEST series I've read. I laughed until I was in tears. They just got funnier as the series and characters lives developed. Each time a new one congress out I use it as on excuse to re-read the whole series. ❤💙💚💛💜
I loved what happened when Declan pops up at the dinner between Shannon and Steve. The ex-jerk!
Her performance during these books is phenomenal!
There are times when Declan is jerk. But, I still love him!
I have so many questions that I need answers to!! First and most important question is why was this book so short?! I need to know what is happening between the couple and what is up with Steve. Secondly, what is Declan hiding. I feel like there is something fishy happening there and I have a ton of questions about him... but don't want to spoil the story. Lastly, what's next for them? Is it happily ever after or is it the end?
This is book number three in the Shopping for a Billionaire series. We continue to get to know Shannon and Declan and their families. It's sweet, serious and sexy all in one book. You can't listen without laughing out loud. Try it....I dare you! You will not be sorry!
Yes. She is improving with each book.
Most defiantly! This series if funny and so real life. I feel like I could be her with out the humor. I am always on the bad end of something.
This is another great installment in to this series. I can not say enough about how fun, funny and real life this series is. Shannon is like a good dose of reality! She has such a hard time believing that a guy like Declan would be interested in her and that I can relate! How Shannon just rolls with all the bad is awesome and something that happens to her a lot.
I loved it! Fast paced and hilarious. The narrator does an incredible job telling this story.
I love the characters. They're always surprising me and the story keeps me laughing and smiling until the end.
When Shannon was in her hospital room and the conversation with Her nephew and Declan turned to private parts. Absolutely brilliant and funny
Billionaire meets his match
This series continues to make me laugh. It's fresh storylines keep me entertained and leave me wanting more. Declan is a sweet and sexy hero and Shannon is so into him yet having a hard time shaking her ex. They're cute, sweet and super fun stories.
