Shopping for a Billionaire is my favorite contemporary comedic romance series. All of the books have made me laugh. I’ll admit it; I have a twisted sense of humor. I really enjoy the down-to-earth humor shared by Shannon and Declan. They’re my kind of people, even if Declan is one of those crazy ultra rich types.
Shannon is a curvy girl, and she’s written like she’s a curvy girl. She’s not morbidly obese, but she’s curvy. (I think she’s a size 16 or something like that?) In short, she’s representative of something closer to the average woman, which makes it so easy to relate to her.
I’m a size 14, myself. (I need to be closer to a size 8 for my build.) Once upon a time, I was a size 00. It wasn’t pretty. My reasons for being so thin were due to nature and metabolism issues, not by choice… but I still haven’t quite found a balance between eating so much to not lose weight versus packing on the pounds.
Maybe one day.
Anyway, I really liked this book, although I’ll totally confess… I was hoping this was the last one. After so many books in the series, I want closure. Closure that I totally did not get. I love this series, but… closure, please.
Judging from the book’s conclusion, I’m still in for the long haul, although the next title in the series is from Andrew’s perspective, who is Declan’s brother.
I’m not sure what I think about that. There was already one from Amanda’s perspective. Amanda is Shannon’s best friend. While the book was okay, it was only okay to me.
I just don’t have the same connection with Amanda and Andrew that I do with Declan and Shannon.
All in all, I was really happy with the book. I laughed a lot. There were sad moments, and there were the required sexy ones, too. One thing worth noting was the fact the book delved into some of the more serious sides of relationships, which I really enjoyed.
So, if you enjoy funny romantic reads, this series is probably for you… if you like toilet humor. This series embraces that sort of humor, it also embraces slapstick, and it embraces funny but potentially humiliating/embarrassing situations.
4.5*, and I’d skew closer to 4*. I really enjoyed the read, but the lack of closure to the story got to me.
Is it so much to want to *finally* get that happily ever after for everyone involved?
