I planned the perfect proposal. Plenty of lobster, caviar, champagne and--her favorite--tiramisu. The perfect setting. The perfect woman.
The perfect everything.
My dad gave me my late mother's engagement ring, platinum and diamonds galore. Of course, my Shannon wouldn't care if I slid a giant hard-candy ring on her finger instead of a three-carat diamond designed to impress.
But my future mother-in-law, Marie, will pass out when she sets eyes on that rock, and that will give us two minutes of blessed silence. That woman talks more than Kim Kardashian flashes her naked backside on the internet.
I was going to make it perfect, down to the color of the tablecloth to the freshness of the roses.
And it was perfect.
Until Shannon swallowed the ring.

Julia Kent's "Shopping for a Billionaire" is a collection of five tales. I will warn you first... this book has had me laughing so hard I almost peed myself.

What happens when hot guy as she dubbed him in the shop comes into the men's room and surprises her making her cell phone fall into the toilet? That's right, he finds her with her hand in the toilet trying to get it out before the automatic flush happens. Follow this kick ass story of hilariousness. Part 1 to 5 is awesome and then there's 6 and 7 to come!!!
