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

But he likes the taste of Chloe more.

Our Options Have Changed is a full-length standalone contemporary romance, the first in the On Hold series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia Kent and journalist-turned-fiction-writer Elisa Reed. It is a loose spinoff from Julia Kent’s Shopping for a Billionaire series, with cameo appearances from favorite characters.
**BONUS ALL-NEW NOVELLA** from Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling Shopping series! Read Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon. This 100-page bonus comes at the end of Our Options Have Changed. When Shannon can’t get workaholic Declan to give her the sexy honeymoon time she wants, she takes matters into her own hands — with hilariously disastrous (or disastrously hilarious?) results.
Our Options Have Changed was such a sweet read that had me enchanted from the start. Our Options Have Changed is the first book in a new series and it will leave you desperate for the next book in the series. I was really interested in this book as soon as I read the description for it and I was not disappointed. There was so much about this book that I loved, I loved the storyline of two people falling in love and I loved the way that the two characters met. I don’t want to give any spoilers away but it had me laughing out loud when the two main characters Nick and Chloe meet.
I really enjoyed the main character Chloe and the way that she was going after what she wanted in life. I found that she was a compassionate character that cared for others. There were moments were I just wanted to give Chloe a big hug when she was trying to juggle everything in her life. I loved Nick and especially the relationship that he had with his kids. Nick is an incredible good guy that I adored so much. I laughed with some of the banter he had with his kids and I loved the way that he was a caring father to his children as well. I enjoyed Nick’s three kids so much and there was so many moments they made me laugh until I had tears in my eyes. It is clear that they love their dad so much and want the best for him.
Both characters were perfect for each other and it was evident when they were together in the book. I loved the way that the two characters found each other during big moments of their lives. I absolutely adored this story and I cannot wait for the next story in the series.
Home is the first space. Work is the second space. Third spaces are locations like coffee shops and malls.
O is the fourth space. The space where you can arrive. Rest. Relax. Indulge. Be someone you can’t be in the other three spaces.
Based on our membership rates, we’re onto something. Our investors are, shall we say, pleased.
O does have a public presence, thanks to our retail environments. In Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and soon in New Orleans, sophisticated consumers can spend hours—and hundreds of dollars—browsing our selection of “elegant accessories for intimate pleasure.”
That’s right—sex toys. That’s what the masses call them. Except at O, we cater to a clientele that doesn’t want to be one of the hoi polloi. They want to be unique. In the know. Enlightened and cosmopolitan on the surface.
But a wildcat down…below.
Which makes a Grade C unacceptable. No one wants to be average.
