Shopping for a Billionaire Boxed Set by Julia Kent

24423835Synopsis: 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.

My first impression was, “Whoa, she has a way with making the oddest analogies.” I like it. I found myself laughing quite a bit. I generally am not a big fan of comedy but I think my mind has changed recently. This is a romantic comedy and since it’s a boxed set it was pretty long at about 671 pages give or take for kindle conversion. This book was witty and filled with sarcastic dialogue. I love dialogue! You have no idea. It’s like my kryptonite. Other people love action scenes or romance or internal struggle. I love dialogue. It seemed to address self-esteem/confidence issues while bringing with it an appropriate amount of levity. I almost felt like I had whiplash from laughing so hard then reading the next sentence that went deep into her internal psyche. It was an unusual feeling. The main part that stuck out for me was the initial break-up. It seemed too simple a reason. But I have no allergies so I guess I don’t see the issue there. How they resolved there issue was just so stinking cute.

Characters

Shannon: She is a bit of a klutz but it’s quite endearing. I love her mystery shopping job which opens her life up to ridiculous situations but she just rolls with it and deals. She is down to earth and doesn’t cave in the face of an over-bearing male-dominated field. She has high expectations when it comes to her career. I fell ya girl! Her family is very close to her and they share everything with each other. What really caught my attention was the fact that even though she is a plus sized woman they didn’t focus on it too much and she didn’t lose any weight to make herself feel better about herself. I think it may have been mentioned a hand full of times throughout. Since it’s a box set, that’s a big deal to me.

Declan: He seemed stand-offish to me. He had to be the one in control. He had a touch of Type A personality which he would need to be a billionaire but he gave up before it even had a chance IMO. The focus seemed to be on his appearance a bit more than Shannon’s. Almost as if the gender roles had been reversed. Almost. He was a bit emotionally immature for me, especially since he was older than Shannon. But he does grow up a bit as the series progresses. His family is all business and they are not as close as Shannon’s.

People who think animals have expressionless faces are like people who can ignore an open package of Oreo’s. Not quite human.
