Description from Publisher:
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-fiancĂ©e 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;)

My Musings:
This was my first Julia Kent book, and thus my first in the Shopping for a Billionaire series, and now I really want to read the rest!

Gerald is a bodyguard for an important billionaire executive, as well as an art teacher at a local college. We first meet him just before a sculpting class begins and he is meeting two elderly ladies in their 90s, Agnes and Corrine, who are hilarious with their banter and general antics. Eventually, we also meet Suzanne, who is a partner at an esteemed Boston law firm and Gerald's ex-fiancee who served with him a decade before in Afghanistan. And who is about to serve him with some papers about an inheritance.

This book is FUNNY. I found myself laughing from basically the very first page and then several times throughout! Laughing out loud was something I literally kept doing (fortunately, I was in a dark room while everyone else was sleeping, so nobody thought I was crazy. ;) )

But this book isn't just funny, it also has heart. I especially enjoyed how Julia Kent handled PTSD of war veterans in this. It isn't too heavy-handed, but still real. Everything in this is kept mostly lighthearted and fun.

This is a second-chance romance involving two very strong characters, and will keep you smiling!
