You know what's even better than marrying a billionaire? Having his baby.

We're ready. We've studied and planned, read all the birth and labor books, researched parenting classes, consulted our schedules, and it's time.

And by we I mean me.

Declan's just ready for the "have lots of sex" part. More than

But there's just one problem: my husband and his brother have this little obsession with competition.

And by little, I mean stupid.

That's right.

We're not just about to try to bring a new human being into the world.

We have to do it better, Faster, Stronger.


McCormick men don't just have babies.

They engage in competitive billionaire Babythons.

I thought the hardest part about getting pregnant would be dealing with my grandchild-crazed mother, who will go nuts shopping for a billionaire's baby.


Between conception issues, my mother's desire to talk to the baby through a hoo-haw cam, a childbirth class led by a drill sergeant and a father-in-law determined to sign the kid up for prep school before Declan even pulls out, my pregnancy has turned out to be one ordeal after the other.

But it's nothing -- nothing -- compared to the actual birth.

Shopping for a Billionaire's Baby is the newest book in Julia Kent's New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series and is a 400+ page full-length novel.

My Thoughts:

Shannon McCormick shows what a lot of women in her position may go through.  Declan McCormick shows what a lot of men in his position may go through.  Amanda and Dave were great secondary characters.  Amanda was a great friend and Dave had a great head on his shoulders – both were great compliments to their counterparts.  And speaking of complimenting each other – Shannon and Declan are a perfect team.

One thing you’ll have to prepare yourself for is the frank talk about babies and everything that goes along with it.  You’ll also need to prepare yourself for a sore stomach.  You’ll be laughing so much with this one.  Couldn’t read the book at work either – couldn’t hold the laughter in.

The story takes place in my neck of the woods and the weather is slowly improving so I smell a road trip in my future.  I’ve got to travel up north and check out some of the sights that our main characters visit.  The only think is that I might need Declan’s wallet when I get there – at least one can always hope.

You could, if you wanted to, start reading this Shopping series here but I hope at some point you will decide that you’d like to check out some of the books that have come before.  It’s never a bad thing when an author can get me to laugh – and Ms. Kent does that with ease.  Don’t you want to know more about this couple?  How they came to be?  Then you get to the Epilogue and see the hardest two words to read.  But then you read two sentences that will make you happy – well at least it made me happy.


“Just because other people can’t get their act together as parents doesn’t mean we can’t,” I explain. “There is no process that can’t be project managed into a well-oiled machine, babies included.”

Andrew snorts. “You really believe that.”

“A baby is like a disruptive new technology. But our first deliverable is still eight months to a year away. That leaves us plenty of time to update our practices and diversify into new areas. Find the best people, incentivize them, and keep
them in their swim lanes.”

I’m getting major raised eyebrows here.

“Optimization protocols, testing, fine tuning, and putting together the right team is all it takes. Drill down to the essentials, find people who are the absolute best at what we need, and that’s it–we build a life based on optimal outcomes.”

“You sound like you’re making a robotic dog, Dec. Not a human.”

“This baby will have a hands-on father. Plenty of love. And with a mother like Shannon, how could we go wrong?” Mother. Calling Shannon a mother does something to my gut. A tug, hard and emotional, destabilizes me for a second.

Author Bio:

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men's room toilet (and he isn't a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.
