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.

Praise for Julia Kent’s Books:
"A frothy, fabulous romantic comedy." ~ Kirkus Reviews (review for Shopping for a Billionaire)
"Julia Kent is my go-to author when I want to laugh, swoon and just feel oh-so-good as I get lost in a romance! Hasty delivers on all those fronts!" ~ #1 New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely
"I love Hasty so much! I will never not smile every time I think about Hastings Monahan, her epic fall from the top, moving back home with her parents, her ex, and the cow thing. Bonus, Ian McCrory is a total swoon fest of a hero. Ten thousand stars!" ~ USA Today Bestselling Author Pippa Grant
"From the very first page of Hasty, I knew I was in for a ride. I felt as if I were seeped into the character's lives, feeling second-hand embarrassment and frustration as their paths crossed. I adored this book and I cannot wait to dive into another Julia Kent romance!" ~ New York Times Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan
"Hasty was the perfect antidote to 2020 - utterly adorable and deliciously satisfying." ~ USA Today Bestselling Author Melanie Harlow
"Holy rabbit milk cheese! Julia Kent is the only author capable of making me laugh my lady parts inside out! Hastings, is a heroine after my own heart. The things that come out of that woman's mouth are pure *chef's kiss.* I promise you Julia saved the best for last in this series!" ~ Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Nana Malone
"Reading a Julia Kent book is like taking a vacation with your best friends. They'll make you laugh, tug on your heartstrings, and leave you wanting more." -- New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster
"Kent and Reed create rom com magic in this friends to lovers romance. Laughter, tears, and all the swoons." -- USA Today Best Selling author Daisy Prescott
"Heartwarming and intensely emotional, Our Options Have Changed is witty, sexy and hilarious with a heroine you admire and a hero you can't help falling in love with." -- Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author
"Witty, sexy, funny and delightfully delicious--love it from beginning to end."-- USA Today bestselling author T Gephart
"An utterly charming celebration of the messiness of love, life, and motherhood... every woman deserves a Nick." -- Laurelin Paige, New York Times bestselling author
"This book is life. Funny, smart, and banter like no other. Fluffy is my top read this year!" - New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels
"Wickedly entertaining and clever, with spot on sexual tension and banter, you won't be able to put this one down - nor will you want to!" - #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken
"When I need an insightful, amusing, beautifully written book, I pick up a Julia Kent novel. So, it was this mindset that I read Fluffy, a book about an accidental fluffer. Yes, that kind of fluffer. I usually laugh often while reading Julia's work, but this time, I LOL'd and ROTFLMAO'd with every dang page. Fluffy is the light and sweet side of Julia Kent, a perfect fluffernutter of romantic comedy: Very sweet, a little salty, and definitely delicious." - USA Today bestselling author Blair Babylon

From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men's room toilet (and he isn't a billionaire).
She lives in New England with her husband and three children in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.

A Must read! Will keep you laughing!
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!
