This novella originally appeared in A Sweet Life boxed set (all proceeds donated to diabetes research), so if you bought that boxed set you already own this! If you didn't buy that boxed set, here's your chance to read my new series.
When mystery shopper Shannon Jacoby meets billionaire Declan McCormick with her hand down a toilet in the men's room of one of his stores, it's love at first flush in this hilarious new romantic comedy from New York Times best-selling author Julia Kent.

Every once in a while I like to listen to something out of my "norm" and this one fit the bill. It is written and narrated very well and is entertaining from beginning to end. Because of the more adult banter between the main characters, it is more of an adult listen. It's definitely worth listening to if you need a laugh.
This is the first in a series of 8 on Audible, so if you don't like cliffhangers I suggest you get all of the books in the series.

Hello I am addicted to Audible!!! The addiction is real and I need help...more credits that is.....
I would listen to this book again and again. It is just so cute, the narration is great and the book is just like hanging with a girlfriend. It is easy and fun!
Oh Tanya is GREAT. I laughed, I smirked and I lauged out loud. She made the characters come to life. She put sarcasm n the right places, pitch changes, and pauses that seemed genuine. Just a great Narrrator.
I loved this book, look I am normally all about the hot and steamy books but man it felt good to just enjoy the characters. I was gifted this book in exchange for my unbiased review and all I can say is the book is great. I want to just snuggle up on the couch with a glass of wine and just listen to the enitre collection!!
#TakeMeAway ~ Love to be swept away by a great story and narrator!
Shopping for a Billionaire was positively laugh out loud funny, and I enjoyed every minute!
For a short story, and the first in a series, it had a natural flow. Julia Kent did an amazing job developing the storyline, and sticking to a few scenes that were well developed, descriptive, and funny. It was easy to visualize, and picture each situation perfectly as they played out.
In addition to perfectly laid out storyline, the characters were likable, which really made the story fun to listen too. Shannon's inter dialogue was clever, witty and just downright funny. When she had an embarrassing moment, you could actually feel it! And Declan McCormick was certainly more than he seemed. I liked his attraction to Shannon and the fact he was not afraid to be forward with her at their work/date dinner.
This is the first story I've listened to narrated by Tanya Eby, and I thought she did a wonderful job! Her voice fit the main character perfectly.

That it was so funny and as I used to do secret shopping I could really relate to the heroine.
Shannon cause her inner monolog made me laugh so many times
She brought the story to life for me
I won this audio from the author and was the first book I had ever read by her. I liked this one so much I'm going to use my credit I have to buy the next one. I don't expect it to be the last I listen to by this author
I would have hated myself had I not gotten the Ashton books.. what a cliff hanger starring the next one immediately. I love the sarcastic banter and the intro of the ex. excited to keep listening!!!!
I'm a workaholic, love to go to gym & read. Have 3 wonderful kids & when I don't have time to read I listen to my favorite book via Audible.
Very funny & well written, I stared reading the book last night but fell asleep that I couldn't wait to find out how it finished. I normally read the books then listen but I couldn't wait for this one. Very good read!!
Loved storyline, it was fresh & different.
Dissapointed to realize the cost of the other books in the series for 2-3 hrs of listening, & I see there are 6 books, (so far)...I will not continue the series.
The Book Junkie Reads. . .
I love this BBW dabble in the life if a shopper that got so muchmore thanshebargined for.
I am open to reviewing quality products.
Wow!! I totally underestimated this book! I walked into it thinking it was a humdrum smutty serial. I was so very wrong!! To my utter shock this is a fun witty romance, with only a couple kisses!!! It is a serial, but I am willing to forgive that, because all the parts have been released on audio already. So, no nasty waiting time for me! Hooray!!!
Shannon is a sassy, snarky curvy gal!! Just the sort I adore!! I loved her from the very start. How could you not!! I found my self laughing at her antics and never wanting it to end! The whole book is from her POV, which make it essential that she have an awesome personality, which she does!!!
Declan is yummy and totally into her from the start. I would love to get him in the narration, it would help me see his side of the flirtation. I am very excited to see how it will all progress in the next book.
In addition to how fabulous Shannon is, there are all the quirky fun supporting characters. From her grumpy cat to her outspoken mom, her bff and her cheapskate boss. This book is bursting at the seems with all the fun and witty banter!!! I had to pick up the ebook, just so I could make favorite quotes on Goodreads!!
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. The men's voice are just masculine enough, without seeming like a caricature. Definitely a narrator I will be looking for more of in the future! She gives good voice!!!
The book leaves off at on okay point, just starting things out and ready to see what comes next. As a general rule, I do not like books that are delivered piece mail. However, this one being all out already helps soften that for me. Pick up this first book free on Amazon and then get the audio on a whispersync deal. You will be just as hooked as I am!

"Laugh out loud funny"
The fact that I couldn't control my laughter at certain points in the story. Warning, this book is not to be read while running as laughing on a treadmill is a health hazard
Shopping for a Billionaire differs from the crowd of romance novels with it's stomach tightening laughter scenes. The blend of comedy and romance is spot on.
Although not the voice I had imagined when I originally read the book, the expressiveness of Tanya Eby's voice especially around Marie and the sheer horror it conveys when she is being inappropriate is priceless!
