Blurb

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 ready.

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.

Harder.

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.

Wrong.

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.

Excerpt


“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.



Review by Kathy


I never would have thought that getting pregnant could be so funny, but in this book, it is one laugh after another starting from the very first page. You go through the entire process, from conception all the way through birth and even when there is a tense moment, the pages prior and the ones following will have you smiling, and outright laughing and not only the situations but the conversations between the characters. This is a well written book with a storyline that many will identify with, although some of the situations are exaggerated for humor's sake. I mean, I don't even remember being that emotional when I was pregnant...although the food parts were on point! Declan was a saint for having to deal with the overly emotional Shannon, but you can see just how much he loves her even through his confusion. 

The characters are well written and so entertaining and engaging that you can't help but fall in love with them. The supporting characters are a hoot, especially the older women in the story. One, Marie, Shannon's mother is a bit scatterbrained and naive to new terms and their meanings in that she holds Unioga class and the ad for it does bring in a crowd, however her excitement is short-lived when she finally finds out exactly what she advertised for. It was hysterical! And that is just one example. Then there are her two friends who have no filter, are "hot to trot" and rather handsy when it comes to Declan (or any man for that matter). I love those two. But it is our lead characters that will have you laughing, crying, getting a bit angry at times, but mostly laughing. Their hotness does not suffer in this book, although at one point Declan does feel like he's being used. But what these two do is communicate, and even with Shannon's self depreciation of her body, Declan calmly and physically shows her that she is still beautiful, even more so carrying their child. His love shines through brightly during these moments and will have you swooning as you read just how much he's attracted to his very pregnant wife, which is beautifully delivered. *aaahhhhhh*. 

I so enjoyed reading this book and thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining journey from two people being a couple, to them becoming a family. Absolutely wonderful read and I highly recommend it.
