Our Options Have Changed - Julia Kent & Elisa Reed - Blog Tour


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.

5 Stars

Our Options Have Changed is the first book in the new On Hold series. I'm a fan of Julia Kent, so couldn't wait to read this book and it didn't dissapoint. I found it completely engaging and thoroughly entertaining, sweet and funny. 

Our Options Have Changed is Chloe Browne and Nick Grafton's story. Chloe and Nick are at completely different points in their life, even though there is only a few years difference in their ages. Chloe is about to adopt, whilst Nick is about to gain an empty nest with all his children having left home to attend college. 

The sparks fly when the pair meet, and their connection is instant. Chloe is a highly successful, driven executive, and a bit of a workaholic. She is also compassionate, caring and loving. I completely adored Nick, he is an incredibly endearing character and such a good guy, always trying to do the right thing for his family. This pair face quite a few obstacles to finding happiness with each other both from their own mindsets and also from outside influences. 

I loved the banter between the characters, in particular between Nick and his children, some of their topics of conversations where completely inappropriate, but were also hilarious and had me laughing out loud. 

It was wonderful to see several of the characters from the Shopping series, make an appearance within the story line. 

I really adored Nick and Chloe's story and cannot wait for more books in this series.
