Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #1
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 bestselling author Julia Kent.
I have to say that i was really in the mood for a bit of chick lit which is exactly what we get here. It’s funny – i’ve become really accustomed to Billionaire titled series to be in line with heavier erotica or BDSM, but it was nice to have something light and entertaining here.
So as the very short synopsis tells us, we meet our leading lady Shannon when she’s filling in on mystery shops for the company that she works for. While she’s in her final location for the day, in walks a sexy man, dressed to the nines and she realizes that she’s in such a mismatched state that things couldn’t get any worse. or could they? It’s when she has to go into the mens room to finish the shop that things go wrong. Said hot man comes into the bathroom when she’s in there and if that weren’t bad enough, she drops her phone in the toilet, loses her balance, he saves her and she has to find some way to get out of that embarrassing situation.
If only that’s as bad as it gets for her. She continues her day into work and finds that they are pitching a huge account, goes into that meeting only to find said hot guy as one of the clients. He calls her toilet girl, her friend calls him ‘hot guy’ and well, you can only imagine what happens from there.
The interesting thing here is that some how there’s an attraction there – and these 2 – hot guy Declan and messy girl Shannon find that they have a shared chemistry and see what comes of it. That’s where this intro of the series leaves us off. It’ll be interesting to see where things go both personally and professionally and i’m sure that it will be anything but dull with these folks.
