About this ebook

I’m a professional chickenblocker.

Except “chicken” is a euphemism.

I get paid to follow a womanizing troglodyte who thinks rules are for other people and that my pants are the next pair he’s getting into.

Dream on.

Bet your first professional job didn’t involve babysitting an extremely hot, muscle-bound Scottish Highlander with an ego the size of a kilt and a libido bigger than his…well…


Keeping Scottish football (that’s ‘soccer” to us Americans) player Hamish McCormick away from inappropriate scandals while he does product endorsement campaigns is my mission.

No problem.

Until Hamish decides I’m his next scandal.

And maybe more….

Shopping for a Highlander is an enemies-to-lovers, slow burn romance that opens with a surprise kiss and ends with a happily ever after. This sports comedy in the New York Times bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire world contains no actual chickens, but it has plenty of locker room scenes, a fake relationship, very real banter, and more. You do not have to have read the previous books in this world, though after you read about Amy and Hamish, you’ll want to. ;)

If you’re a fan of Julia Kent’s Shopping for a Billionaire series (and really, how could you not be?), then you have been waiting for this book a long time. And I’m here to tell you, it was definitely worth the wait! This book is a master class in how to flawlessly deliver the “enemies to lovers” trope. I have honestly never seen it done better. Everything about this book is systematically designed to draw you in and make you love every single second of it. The writing is deeply heartfelt and laugh-out-loud funny at the same time. This wonderful dichotomy of emotions is something Julia Kent absolutely excels at, and this story and these characters demonstrate that fact just beautifully. I don’t typically use the term swoonworthy, but oh my, does it ever apply here… both to the story itself and to a certain ginger-haired footballer. In fact, Hamish just rocketed himself to the top of my admittedly very long list of book boyfriends with this book. Turns out the gorgeous Scot is beautiful both inside and out, with a heart so big, it’s rivaled only by his well-earned ego. And Amy is a multi-faceted character that just about every woman, in one way or another, can see themselves reflected in. The love between the characters is hard won, but that just makes it all the sweeter. These characters are just so incredibly well thought out and compelling. There’s a realness and a vulnerability to them that just sucks you right in to the story; you simply can’t help but become invested. You definitely don’t need to have read the other books in this series to thoroughly enjoy this story. But if you have read the previous books, then the appearance of your favorite characters from past books in this story will only serve to increase your enjoyment ten-fold. I absolutely adored this book from start to finish, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It just might be my favorite book in the series… until the next one, at least. * I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All of my opinions are honest and entirely my own.

5 star review Shopping For A Highlander (Shopping for a Highlander #2) by Julia Kent From the first chapter Julia Kent had me hooked on Hamish McCormick and Amy Jacoby’s story. If there is one thing I know when I start a book by this author, I know I am in for an entertaining read that will have me laughing so much that I will cry. After reading Shopping for a Turkey, I couldn’t wait to dive into this book. This book was so good. The family and shenanigans were as outrageous as always and made for a fun read. Not only was it funny but the chemistry that sizzles between Hamish and Amy was impossible to ignore. Amy has been tasked with keeping Hamish out of trouble and she has her work cut out for her, particularly when he decides to focus his attention on her. There’s a fine line between love and hate and It was so much fun to watch the push and pull as they navigated their relationship. It was also great to see all the familiar faces that we have come to know and love make an appearance. Shopping For A Highlander was a fabulous addition to one of my favourite romantic comedy series.

Wow. Squeeeee. Happy Dance. I loved this book, a brilliant addition to the Shopping series. Julia Kent has done it again :-) Hamish and Amy have been supporting cast for a while, it is sooooooo good for them to get their time in print. Hamish is the lovable rogue who thinks with his todge and wants to make every woman happy. Amy the youngest daughter, who feels the need to control and keep it together, at all times, no exception. In the past Hamish has always been the wind up merchant and Amy trying to control the last thread of sanity he leaves in his wake. They are chalk and cheese and so perfect for each other. This tale is a rollercoaster of Hamish discovering himself and Amy learning to let go, just a little bit. I love the story arc, character development and attention to detail. Julia Kent is an exceptional writer and I cannot recommend this book, series or any of her other works enough. Go for it. You won't regret it 💖💖💖
