Gerald Wright works for billionaires. He never imagined he’d become one.
The former Navy Seal is a chauffeur by day, artist by night, so when hotter-than-ever ex-fiancée Suzanne Dayton interrupts his nude model sculpting class to serve him with inheritance paperwork from a man he’s never heard of, he assumes it’s a joke.
Turns out the joke’s on him. There’s just one catch. A big one.
And it might be Suzanne — in more ways than he ever dreamed.
Shopping for an Heir is the 10th book in the New York Times bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire series by Julia Kent. It features many favorite characters from the Shopping series, including Declan McCormick himself as Gerald's class model ;)
Just Keeps Getting Better
There is a depth to this latest book, combining the Inheritance series and Shopping series, not readily seen in other books by Ms Kent...not only is a very real and devastating issue of PTSD addressed, but there is a deeper layer of intensity than previously written in the Shopping series. Yes the wackiness of Marie pops up...was anyone else cheering as I did when Gerald literally removed her from his class?...Ms Kent's trademark witty banter and dialog, along with the humorous under currents of the cast of characters from the Shopping series...Agnes!!...are all present, but Gerald and Suzanne's relationship had an intenseness to it than any of the other character couples. Perhaps it was their shared history in the military, but they definitely were completely unique to previous characters I've read from this author. Ms Kent has once again demonstrated her talent as a storyteller through her ability to draw the reader into the story from the beginning, not releasing that grasped until the very end.
Overall the story is multileveled, the premise intriguing, and the characters entertaining...the emotional investment of previous characters is added to by Gerald and Suzanne, with newer, revisiting characters making a more prominent appearance, Vince needs his own story...would love to see James and Pam expanded upon. I'm looking forward to what's up next in the Shopping series.
This book was provided by the author for my honest review.
A story filled with comedy, love, priceless relics, forgiveness, out spoken seniors, and oregano.
Gerald is a strong presence in the McCormick's lives. Now we have insight into his life. When Suzanne comes back into Gerald's life to deliver his inheritance papers his past comes back to him. He faces his greatest fears and she gets the answers she has been waiting 10 years for. A story filled with comedy, love, priceless relics, forgiveness, out spoken seniors, and oregano. A great addition to the Shopping series.
Do Yourself a Favor and Read This Book
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This was a tremendous read! It was nice to touch upon the Shopping universe and learn more about Gerald, the McCormick chauffeur/security. Gerald is an man of many talents and some secrets. His relationship with Suzanne is a second chance at love story that was compelling to read--I couldn't put it down. I also loved the appearances of the "usual suspects" from this universe--especially the more geriatric characters. Julia has done it again! All hail Ms. Kent!
