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.

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.

Didn't want this to end! I am a huge fan of Julia's Shopping series. I've really enjoyed reading about Gerald over time. It was great to see him get his own story. I really hope to be seeing Gerald and Suzanne's story continue within the Shopping Series.

LOVED this book! Fun and funny with moments that made me literally laugh out loud. This is a wonderful series that always makes me smile. I especially enjoyed learning Gerald's story in the book. He's been a steady fixture in this series, but I never thought about his back story and it was delightful and so much better than anything that I ever could have imagined. This is a must read for fans of the genre. While it is part of a series, it is a stand alone novel, however, the series is so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all.

This book can certainly be read as a standalone but you will truly be missing out on some hilarious reading if you skip the rest of the series. Gerald has always been in the background of this series, driving the men of Anterdec anywhere they need to go. Suddenly, he's informed that he could make millions of dollars off his inheritance from a man he's never met. As if that isn't shock enough, the papers are delivered by Gerald's former fiancee, who he left 10 years ago. Suzanne is determined to serve these papers and then have this case reassigned. She's never gotten over her anger and heartbreak that Gerald caused when he ended their relationship. I laughed so hard reading this book that I had trouble reading the words. There are so many cameos by characters that I have loved in this series and when the Shopping characters show up, hilarity ensues. While there was a ton a humor, there was also a bit of angst that made you pull for these characters. I'm looking forward to seeing these two in future books in the series!!! *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*

So Good I devoured it in one day, dodging all household responsibilities much to my hubby's frustration... LOL Gerald Wright has been an interesting person in the background through out the series and I was so happy to get to know him better in this new story. Julia Kent does not disappoint in developing her people and the stories they have lived. Suzanne is the perfect puzzle part to complete Gerald. They are so explosive together it was so fun to watch them figure out the past and the present. Great appearances from lots of the beloved people of this series through out the book, loved every laugh out loud moment. Lots of fun to read.

Shopping for an Heir is the next book in an absolutely amazing series by Julia Kent. I love the humor and love that goes on in all of her books. You will be constantly laughing (even out loud), gasping, and blushing. This is the fastest that I have read a book in a while, and I read fast normally. Gerald is the chauffeur of the McCormick's and is also an ex-navy seal. He has seen and done things in his past that he would rather forget. One of those things is about a woman. He needs to try to make things right with her. She on the other hand was hurt bad, maybe too bad to try again. Find out what happens in this sexy book, where you will also find a hot naked billionaire surrounded by old women.

As usual, Ms. Kent didn't disappoint. I was entranced with the first page. The humor in this book is outstanding. --Tara Holroyd, avid reader

Gerald and Suzanne were so fun to read about and learn there story. There were parts in the story that had me laughing until I had tears running down my face, than there were parts that were warm and tender, but my favorite is when Agnes is involved, she is hilarious. It was such a great book I couldn't put it down.

Really, what's not to love about this series? This book is a little different because it isn't about one of the main characters, but it perfectly rounds out the entire series. It gives you insight and a different perspective of the main characters that you wouldn't get otherwise. First, let me start off by saying that I LOVE AGNES!!! This book is full of amazing Agnes moments that will absolutely have you laughing out loud...literally. Then you get to see a completely different side of Declan now that he is CEO of his new Coffee chain. Ok so onto Gerald & Suzanne's story. Gerald gets this weird inheritance that causes him to face & deal with a huge decision he made 10 years ago. Gerald & Suzanne go through this journey of revelations, forgiveness & a fair share of suspense. Julia has done it again...captured my heart & has me salivating for more of this series!

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.

What appeals to me about The Inheritance series is the ability of one person, making an impact on numerous lives. With all of the violence and hate in the world, the thought that there are good hearted people is tossed by the wayside. Julia Kent, Lisa Mondello, Katherine Shay, Judith Arnold, Jean Brashear, Kathy Carmichael, Margaret Daley and Teresa Hill have lended their creative gifts in one unanimous message: "One person can make a difference." Shopping for an Heir blends heart with inspiration. Agnes and Corinne with their dirty mouths and hilarious antics added to the fun but Suzanne and Gerald turn the fun and hope into a reason to dream. Concept, message, writing and characters are this reader's ideal.
