Description

Our Options Have Changed Having it all is a fantasy, right?

Chloe Browne knows all about fantasy. Fantasy is her job.

And she’s very, very good at what she does.

As director of design for the O Spa chain, a sophisticated women’s club that is trending its way into being the Next Big Thing, Chloe’s ready to take on the world.

One baby at a time.

Her home study’s done, and she’s about to adopt, a thirty-something single mother by choice. Who needs to put her life on hold for the right guy when the right baby is waiting for her?

Besides, talk about fantasy.

The right guy?

Pfft. Right.

And then in walks Nick Grafton, with those commanding sapphire eyes and wavy blonde hair and a sophisticated mouth that only smiles for her.

He’s perfect.

But the last thing Nick wants is to start fresh with a new baby as his college-age kids fly the coop. A single father for more than fifteen years after his wife walked out on her family, Nick finally tastes freedom.

But he likes the taste of Chloe more.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge.

She lives in New England with her husband and three children in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.

New England born and bred, Elisa Reed now lives, writes, and plays in New Orleans and along the sugar sands of the Gulf Coast.

    I really enjoyed the unfolding character of Nick and getting to see him through the eyes of his brother and kids . But reading about Shannon and Declans honeymoon, has me crying in laughter again . Alas Julia Kent is the only one who manages to make me laugh out loud . Bravo .

    So awesome! A spin off from Julia's Shopping series, Our Options have changed is a perfect mix of laugh out loud moments and vulnerability. An honest view of family and how they come in all shapes and sizes. The bonus shopping for a honeymoon novella just adds to the perfection (and the laughs)

    Our Options Have Changed by Julia Kent and Elisa Reed This was a great, fun romance from Julia Kent, who I have read previously, and Elisa Reed who I have not. It follows the story of Chloe, an extremely successful businesswoman: director of design for a world-class spa chain who is looking to adopt a baby and the slightly older business associate Nick who is finally at the empty-ish nest phase of his life. Overall, this was a fun read with plenty of humorous moments throughout. These were interspersed with some serious dilemmas and undertones particularly where difficult decisions have to be made. I enjoyed the natural progression of the relationship and I think Nick's kids added some sweetness to the book! The last 15% or so had me smiling and nodding in agreement as I remembered the first time I left my kids to go to work and so Chloe certainly had my sympathy there. I really admired her for knowing what she wanted and not being afraid to find and grab onto it with both hands. I really liked Focus Man too! He was very sweet and sexy and all those lovely things. I loved that he was able to differentiate what he thought he wanted and what his heart really wanted. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series! I wonder who it'll be about: does anyone know?! *arc received in exchange for honest review. **Reviewed by Melinda for Joandisalovebooks Blog.
