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?
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 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.

**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.
“She’s good, isn’t she?” Andrew says.
And giving and game, apparently.
I give Amanda a look. She shrugs.
“Chloe?” I ask.
“Right. Smart, intuitive, an eye for design, and a great presenter. Gets three layers deeper than anyone in the room ever considered. She’s strategic and composed. Perfect face of O.”
Her O face sure does come to mind. Damn it.
“You want to fund her?”
“The RV spa thing seems farfetched, but figures don’t lie.”
Chloe’s figure, bent over the edge of a bed, that sweet ass—
“Nick?” Andrew snaps his fingers. I shake myself like a wet dog.
“Right. How much should I put in her?”
Andrew’s jaw grinds, but before he can answer my garbled question, we’re interrupted.
“Twelve inches!” Gina exclaims from the doorway.
Timing really is everything.
“What?” Andrew sputters.
She’s holding a tray with three enormous white coffee cups in it.
“Twelve inches! The size of these coffees from downstairs. They’re so big!”
