Shopping for the Billionaire by Julia Kent
Shannon works for a company that provides mystery shopper services to a wide variety of companies. Much of her work is managing shoppers from her office, though she does 'shop' for a number of their top clients. She is a unique character and sees the world from a different perspective than most leading women. She experiences the best and worst of a wide cross section of the population yet still maintains her cheerful outlook. This had me liking her right from the beginning.
I was a bit slower for me to adore Declan, but as he shed his professional persona, I could see the trustworthy and loving man hiding beneath. Finally, there is Shannon's mother. She is a firecracker. Each time she entered a scene, I had no idea what to expect from her other than it might blow up the situation. She is energetic and funny as can be. A great addition to the story line.
I could have rushed through this story, but I decided to take my time and let it develop over the course of a week or so. I wanted to savour their building relationship. There is a sixth book in the Shopper series by Julia Kent, Shopping for a Billionaire's Fiance, that I'll be ordering soon.
