Release Blitz! Our Options Have Changed By Julia Kent and Elisa Reed

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.

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.

This book made me chuckle, sigh and fall in love with both the hero and heroine. This is book one in a new series for these authors.

Chloe Brown is a successful director of design for an elite spa chain called O. The description of the spa and services provided gave me an unexpected chuckle, then I immediately began to wonder if places like this truly exist (and if not-why not?!). We meet Chloe as she’s preparing to pitch an idea to take O in a more mobile direction, dealing with a pending adoption and a jerk of a current boyfriend. Her presentation introduces us to our hero, Nick.

Nick was everything Chloe’s jerk of a boyfriend wasn’t. He was funny, sweet and definitely sexy. The chemistry between them was sparked at the very first meeting and quickly grew from there. There’s one minor hiccup to their relationship-Chloe is adopting an infant and Nick’s children (that he raised pretty much alone) are all grown. Is the spark between them enough to have Nick want to start on the parenthood road all over again?

The characters themselves made this story so relatable. Chloe is a confident and collected woman, just so full of love that she’s bursting at the opportunity to share it. She’s fierce and loyal, and definitely someone I would want to be my friend. Nick’s strength and sweetness under a calm demeanor just sucked me in to him. Each smile he shared felt like a personal victory.

This story was sweet, funny, honest and believable. The addition of adoption into a story can be tricky, but I feel that the authors handled the situation with grace and tact. There were moments that had me laughing, like Chloe and Nick’s initial meet, and moments that made me sigh. I’m a sucker for single parents, which this story had from both sides, which was unique. I really enjoyed the way the authors told this story-I was right along for the ride the whole time.

O is a twenty-first century club for sophisticated women. A fourth space for women of a discerning taste.

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.

Especially down below.
