You know what’s even better than marrying a billionaire? Having his baby.
We’re ready. We’ve studied and planned, read all the birth and labor books, researched parenting classes, consulted our schedules, and it’s time.
And by we I mean me.
Declan’s just ready for the “have lots of sex” part. More than ready.
But there’s just one problem: my husband and his brother have this little obsession with competition.
And by little, I mean stupid.
We’re not just about to try to bring a new human being into the world.
We have to do it better, Faster, Stronger.
McCormick men don’t just have babies. They engage in competitive billionaire Babythons.
I thought the hardest part about getting pregnant would be dealing with my grandchild-crazed mother, who will go nuts shopping for a billionaire’s baby.
Between conception issues, my mother’s desire to talk to the baby through a hoo-haw cam, a childbirth class led by a drill sergeant and a father-in-law determined to sign the kid up for prep school before Declan even pulls out, my pregnancy has turned out to be one ordeal after the other.
But it’s nothing — nothing — compared to the actual birth.

I enjoyed reading this book. I love the characters and the writing was excellent! She was funny throughout the book, but tender and loving in the important parts. I’m keeping it to read again! 55
I love reading this series. It is the perfect amount of romcom. Declan and Shannon are my favorite Julia Kent characters. 55
These books are all about the romance, comedy and steam. There are so many over the top characters and they all make these books special. This book is no exception. The laughter was there, but also the heart warming romance. Sweet, sweet story. 45
I completely love, love, love this series and with each book I fall deeper in love with all the characters. This series is one that you have to read in order...it is not a standalone. So, if you think you might enjoy checking out this book then do yourself a favor and download them all. You will not be disappointed. This series has made me laugh out loud...often and it wouldn't be a Julia Kent book if I didn't find myself googling at least one thing to see if its real. That is just how she rolls. Declan and Shannon are trying to have a baby. And in true Julia fashion she had me laughing out loud to shaking my head at the "man talks" at the gym to tearing up at certain moments. You never know what to expect and I am always on my toes, turning each page and to see what is going to happen next. And I always look forward to see what Julia will have me googling next. So, check out this book, this series...if its your first time hearing about Julia. I guarantee you will will fall in love just like I did. 55
I loved it. At times sweet and romantic, others laugh out loud funny. Readers follow Dec and Shannon’s journey through the decision to have the baby, all the fun TTC, then the pregnancy and birth. It’s realistic, but with the charm and antics we expect from a JK novel. 55
All of these books in this series are so funny. But this one is hysterical! I absolutely read excerpts to my hubby! His fault! Wanted to know what I was laughing so hard about. 😀 The gym scenes are very funny - sad part, guys are really like that. The relationship between Declan and Shannon is so sooo swoon worthy and I love that even after being married to Declan for a couple years her insecurities still peak through. Marie is still a hoot & Andrew is still trying to best his brother. Julia Kent has knocked this one out of the park and it’s a definite reread for me. I can’t wait for the next “Soppong” book and don’t even care who it will feature. I just know it will be funny and romantic and that’s all that matters. 55
This is one of my favorite series and I was beyond excited when I learned that Shannon and Declan were going to be having a baby!! This is the 13th book in the series and while technically it can probably be read as a standalone, the characters and the storyline is best enjoyed when read in order since it has been following the same characters. This book has all of the funny moments that I've come to expect from the Shopping series but in addition to all the funny, there is also a ton of emotional times that are heartwarming and sometimes gut-wrenching. I love all of the moments that Shannon and Declan had in this book, both navigating planning for a baby and all the way through the pregnancy. With every book, I love Declan just a little bit more. I can't wait to see what's in store for this crazy crew!! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy* 55
Up-roaring, hilariously funny, sweetly sexy good time. One of my all time favorite couples is having a baby and I just can't get enough... From the struggles of conceiving to the emotional birth I just could not put it down (house work went undone, meals where nuked, kids were complaining and hubby was sadly neglected (sorry family, I do love you)) Declan and Shannon are so in love and have the nuttiest family but you just can't help but love them. Who could resist reading about a the McCormick brothers engaged in competitive billionaire Babython. I laughed, I cried, I said to myself "oh my goodness" ... do not read in public unless you are ok with random strangers looking at you funny or asking what the heck? Could not have loved this adventure more. 55
Julia Kent, the undisputed queen of romantic comedy, is back with a new addition to the Shopping For A Billionaire series… and it is freaking phenomenal! Shannon and Declan are back and looking to expand their family with their first child, sparking Andrew’s competitive nature and Marie’s need to be… well, Marie. Typical of Shannon and Declan’s relationship, nothing much goes according to plan in this endeavor, and the resulting narrative is nothing short of hilarious. It’s also equal parts heart warming, hopeful, and endearing. The laugh out loud moments are many, as are the moments that just make your heart smile. Yes, I’m aware that hearts can’t actually smile… but this book sure made mine want to. The characters in this series are over the top, yet still so authentic and engaging. You just can’t help but be drawn into their world, and before you know it, you’re completely obsessed with their lives and relationships. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a witty, sexy, and utterly compelling read. *I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own. 55
I giving Shopping for a Billionaire's Baby by Julia Kent Five Stars! This is Book 13 of the Shopping for a Billionaire series and you must read them in order. Just like all of Julia's other books this will have you laughing out loud through out the book. In parts you may tear up, in other parts you will be able to feel the love between Shannon and Declan. For those of you that have ever experience child birth this is a perfect telling of trying to conceive the baby through the birth of your first child. I remember have all the same emotions that Shannon had. Julia you did an amazing job telling this story! It was very well written, a very quick read and you will not be disappoint when you read it. Shannon and Declan have decided that they are ready to finally expand their family from two to three. They both feel, well not both... Shannon feels that they have made enough plans, read enough books, and made sure that there is room in there schedules for a child. Little did Shannon know that when the news got out that they where going to try and get Pregnant that Andrew was going to turn it into a competition..... The brothers compete over everything so why wouldn't they turn this into a competition also?? Who is going to bring the first grandchild into the world? Who will get pregnant first? Shannon thought dealing with her mother was going to be the hardest part about being pregnant but she was total wrong. The whole experience throws one curve ball after another at Shannon including the birth if their child. This is a must read book! There are so many surprise you will love it! 55
