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?
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.

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 is about Chloe, a single and successful businesswoman and Nick, a single father and sexy businessman. These two are basically at different times in their lives when they meet, but are drawn to each other. Is Nick willing to start over with Chloe, who is looking to adopt a baby even though he has raised all of his children?
I enjoyed this story. It was a nice change of pace with the ages of the main character’s. More real life than fantasy. The story was a sweet and touching tale of how love can make you feel young and how while you may think you are at a point and time in your life when you see thing’s one way, how one fateful meeting can make you see that your options have changed.
Our Options Have Changed is a sweet, albeit different, love story about a woman (Chloe) in her 30s who is adopting a baby. Nick, a divorced father in his early 40s, is just sending the last of his grown children out of the nest. He and Chloe fall in love but can he commit to raising a baby when he has finished raising his family?
From the blurb when it described Nick as an “empty nester” I was thinking more in the 50+ range. I certainly wasnt thinking early 40s. He was a very lovable character. A true nice guy in every sense of the word. Sweet, charming and very sexy. I really didnt feel like I could relate to Chloe, especially based on the relationship she had prior to Nick. The story had a nice, upbeat and fast flow to it and was easy to read through in just a few sittings.
