Shopping for a Billionaire Boxed Set (Parts 1-5)
Julia Kent
Publication date: January 9th 2015
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

Ever meet a hot billionaire while your hand’s in a toilet in the men’s room of one of his stores?

No? So it really is just me. Hm.

When you’re a mystery shopper, you get paid to humiliate yourself, all in the name of improving customer service. Romance isn’t in my job description.

But the day I met Declan McCormick it was love at first flush.

Until I nearly castrated him with my EpiPen.

How Hot Guy and Toilet Girl became an item involves my crazy mom, a trip to the ER, my homicidal cat, my fake wife, and true love.

Don’t look at me like that. I’m just doing my job.

I’m shopping for a billionaire.

The Shopping for a Billionaire collection from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent is a 600+ page, hilarious romantic comedy with heart, heat, and laughs.

This boxed set contains the previously published:
Shopping for a Billionaire 1
Shopping for a Billionaire 2
Shopping for a Billionaire 3
Shopping for a Billionaire 4
Christmas Shopping for a Billionaire

EXCERPT:

Whoosh! Whoosh! I flush both urinals, then rush over to toilet #1. Whoosh! I stand in front of the stall to #2 and get ready to flush that one.

I’m in my own little world and let my guard down to ponder the question. I am also exhausted and most definitely not in top form, because I let a few seconds go by before realizing that someone is coming in the bathroom. Out of the corner of my eye I see a business shoe, and that becomes a blur as I scurry into one of the stalls and shut the door.

Heart pounding, I stare at the dented back of the stall door. Then I look down. Chipped red nail polish peeks up at me from my open-toed navy shoe. Aside from being outed as a transgendered person in here, there’s no plausible reason why any men’s room stall occupant should have red toenails.

I quickly scramble to perch myself on the toilet, feet planted firmly on either side of the rim, squatting over the open bowl like I am giving birth. Because I am genetically incapable of balance—ever—and as my heart slams against my chest so hard it might as well be playing a djembe, I lean carefully forward with one arm against the back of the stall door, the other clutching my phone.

The unmistakable sound of a man taking a whizz echoes through the bathroom. I can’t help myself and look through the tiny crack in the door.

It’s Mr. Sex in a Suit, his back to me. Thank goodness, because if I got a full-frontal shot right now, then how would I answer the “aesthetically pleasing” question from a strictly professional standpoint?

The tiny bit of shifting I do to peer through the crack makes my right foot slip, and I make a squeaking sound, then lose my grip on my phone as my arm flails.

Ka-PLUNK!

You know that sound, right? I know, and you know, that I’ve just dropped my smartphone in the toilet, but he thinks the man—he assumes it’s a man—in here just delivered something the size of a two-hundred-year-old turtle into the toilet.

I look down. My phone is still glowing, open to the question “Is the bathroom aesthetically pleasing?”

Review: Girl, Eight - Melinda Woodhall






Girl Eight (Mercy Harbor Thriller, #2)


Review: Girl , Eight - Book #2 Mercy Harbor Series - Melinda Woodhall - March 2019

Eden is back along with Leo Steele and the pair have been spending a lot of time together since solving a murder and saving Eden's niece Hope. Now with the running of her newest center "Hope Centre" caring for addicts wanting to get clean as though Eden couldn't save the Stacey's, Jessica's, or Brandi's of the world - she can at least try and save others wanting to get clean like Kara. The book then jumps to Ace who has killed and buried seven girls so far and looking for an Eighth girl which is where Kara comes in. Working at the center is Doctor Bellows aka Doc and he gets the girls for Ace. He has been getting away with what he has been doing for years, but that's only because he has never quite met someone like Eden who is like a dog with a bone. The last time he did a long time ago, that person got killed along with a few others. In Girl Eight, we have two storylines - the current kidnapping of Kara and Leo and his associates trying to solve the cold cases of two deaths that were talked about in The River Girls - Book #1 including Helena Steele's - Leo's mother. Also, this new case is about to blow up for the local Mercy Harbor Police as corruption and dirty cops come rising to the surface. I am looking forward to reading the later books in this series as I want to find out what happened to Pat Barker's daughter Taylor who he hasn't heard a peep out of for the past three years since his wife passed. If you are looking for a new female mystery author to sink your teeth into, then check out Melinda Woodhall and her Mercy Harbor Series.

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

When Cherri and I entered the kitchen, all eyes turned to us. Across from me, and much to my surprise, Nathan looked like he was on the brink of tears. Everyone’s glances bounced between us, and even as uncomfortable as it made me, I had to admit it was good to see him. He took a step forward and so did I. He shook his head with a little chuckle and held his arms out for a hug.

And then Sicily jumped in front of him and threw his arms around me.

“Deon!” he whined. “It’s really you! I’ve been dreaming of this day!” Even though there was damn near a foot between us, he squeezed me tightly. “I kept looking for you! Your best friend never gave up.”

“I heard,” I said, finally managing to wedge between us to push him back a few feet, but I set my hands on his shoulders. “Thank you. You took care of Cherri, you never gave up on me. You really are the best friend a guy could ask for.”

What I’d learned about Sicily in the limited time that we had to develop a friendship was that he didn’t do emotions very well. He was a natural jester, and when his feelings started to get the best of him, he did what any good jester did—he played it off with a joke. His feelings about being reunited with me must have gotten the best of him, because he started out kidding, but in the wake of my earnest statement, I watched all of his inner jokester fade away.

“Deon,” he said in his serious tone, an octave lower than his usual jubilant tone. “You’re like, the first real friend I ever had, and as much as I hated thinking you were out there in a ditch somewhere, if that hadn’t happened…” He looked past me to Cherri. “I wouldn’t have made the second real friend I ever had.”

Cherri stepped forward and slid between Sicily and me to pull him into a big hug. When she released him, I pulled her back so her back was against my stomach and put a hand on Sicily’s head. “You’re the first real friend I ever had too. When I went missing, you looked after the most important people in my life, my queen…” I looked across at Nathan. “And my brother.”

In an instant, Sicily turned back into the class clown, and his typical tone was back. “Oh! He called me his friend! Nathan did.” He looked back at him. “Tell him.”

Nathan nodded. “I did say that, and I’ve regretted it ever since.”

Everyone chuckled a little, then Cherri stepped aside and dragged Sicily with her. I finished crossing the kitchen, and doing something I honestly never thought I’d do, I pulled Nathan into a huge bear hug. I closed my eyes and breathed in the moment—actually bonding with a brother I hated. We had something that bonded us more than anything else ever could.

The manipulation of Connor Loche.

“So,” Nathan said, pulling away. “How about that dad of ours?”

I shrugged. “I don’t see him as my dad.”

Nathan nodded. “Oh good, I don’t either.”

Colette raised her hand. “Don’t you have to acknowledge that he’s your dad to some extent? Otherwise you wouldn’t be brothers.”

“No,” Nathan and I said in unison, and it brought that concept to an end in a flash.

“He’s done all he needed to do in making us brothers by spreading his seed,” Nathan said.

I nodded. “And now it’s time to stop him so he can’t bring that level of harm to anyone else.”

Review: The Three Mrs. Greys - Shelly Ellis





The Three Mrs. Greys

Review: The Three Mrs. Greys - Shelly Ellis - March 2021

After reading and enjoying Taryn Fisher's book The Wives, I started to enjoy reading books about husbands that had multiple families as it got me thinking how skilled the guy must be to keep everything in order and making sure that his family never know about one another. More often than not, people like this have jobs where they are constantly "traveling" so a business trip is spending time with their other wives. In the Three Mrs. Greys by Shelly Ellis, we meet our husband Cyrus Grey and his first wife - Vanessa whom he has been married to for 11 years and they have three children. Vanessa has recently been having an affair with her son's sports coach as she has been craving attention her husband no longer gives her. His second wife Noelle he has been married to for four years and is a little unstable but dreams of being a mother however Cyrus keeps changing the subject on her and then we have Diamond - a former drug addict and sex worker whose former pimp and boyfriend is in prison. Diamond has been married to Cyrus for a year. While out with Wife #3, Cyrus is shot and rushed to the hospital - here they call his next of kin which is Vanessa, meanwhile, Tariq who is Cyrus's business partner calls Noelle. The two meets at the hospital and soon discover that Cyrus kept a truckload of secrets and read as they unfold when the pair of them discover that he was shot while with his 3rd wife - Diamond.  The Three Mrs. Greys by Shelly Ellis was a fast-paced novel that kept my interest as I loved reading their reactions when they discovered one another. This book does end on a small cliffhanger, so I am looking forward to the direction that Shelly will take in Book #2.

Review: What I Did - Kayla Krantz





What I Did

Review: What I Did - Kayla Krantz - June 2020


I was attracted to this book first from the cover, it is so creepy that it's awesome - the only downside is that the title and author's name are a bit harder to read. The other thing that drew me to this book was the fact that I love murder mysteries and with the main character being a teenager, I was hooked. This book introduces us to Jessica who on the outside looks like your average all-American girl - blonde, pretty but on the inside she is different. You could call her a sociopath - as her personality reminded me strongly of Dexter from the Jeff Lindsey series. Jessica works at a local grocery shop and has a stalker in Samuel and her best friend at work is Oscar. Lately, Oscar has seemed a bit off and I have to admit when the incident happens, I did see it coming as you just know. When Jess kills Oscar saving others, she is praised as a hero but Samuel isn't going to let it go as once, she rejected him, he wants to expose her as the b___ and sociopath she is and we read as he continues to stalk her until one night, he takes it too far. Soon he disappears and Jess is the main suspect, can she throw the police off her trail or will her dark secrets be exposed? Find out in this YA read which reminded me of the 90s type slasher films e.g. I Know What You Did Last Summer / Scream- What I Did by Kayla Krantz.

Review: The River Girls - Melinda Woodhall






The River Girls (Mercy Harbor Thriller, #1)

Review: The River Girls - Book #1 Mercy Harbor Thriller - Melinda Woodhall - November 2018

As a fan of mysteries, I am always on the lookout for new authors and stumbled across Melinda Woodhall and her book #1 The River Girls. I enjoyed reading this and it reminded me of authors like Kendra Elliot, Melinda Leigh, and Rita Herron who are a few of my favorite female writers. In The River Girls, we are immediately thrown into the action with a murder scene of a young girl and then the book kicks over to Eden who is one of our main female characters. She runs a series of women shelters which she calls "Mercy Homes" named after her sister Mercy who was killed through domestic violence. As she is about to leave a young girl Star asks for protection, however by the time Eden comes back with help - the girl has disappeared. Eden heads to the police station to file a missing report and while there meets Leo who is also here to file a missing report on Jess - his client's daughter. As the story goes along and girls are washing up, Eden and Leo will pair up to help find Star and the other girls before anymore turn up washed up as they both have experience with the police force not helping and doing their best and have lost people due to lack of police involvement. Can Eden and Leo find the killers before more girls turn up especially when Eden's niece Hope ends up one of those missing girls? Find out in The River Girls by Melinda Woodhall. A great start to an awesome series, which I will be continuing with, and a new author I will be adding to my list to keep an eye out.
