I get paid to follow a womanizing troglodyte who thinks rules are for other people and that my pants are the next pair he’s getting into.
Bet your first professional job didn’t involve babysitting an extremely hot, muscle-bound Scottish Highlander with an ego the size of a kilt and a libido bigger than his…well…
Keeping Scottish football (that’s ‘soccer” to us Americans) player Hamish McCormick away from inappropriate scandals while he does product endorsement campaigns is my mission.
Until Hamish decides I’m his next scandal.
And maybe more….
Shopping for a Highlander is an enemies-to-lovers, slow burn romance that opens with a surprise kiss and ends with a happily ever after. This sports comedy in the New York Timesbestselling Shopping for a Billionaire world contains no actual chickens, but it has plenty of locker room scenes, a fake relationship, very real banter, and more. You do not have to have read the previous books in this world, though after you read about Amy and Hamish, you’ll want to. 😉
Hamish McCormick’s tongue is in my mouth. I realize this is a problem half the women on the planet would love to have. He’s a world-famous Scottish soccer–sorry, football to everyone except Americans–player, and my sister is married to his cousin, the billionaire. Given the fact that Hamish is kissing me in front of my date, though, it’s a little awkward. “Ahem,” said date says, scratching his temple, adjusting his glasses, and using polite, understated throat techniques to get Hamish off me. Subtlety doesn’t work on Hamish, though. This kiss is anything but subtle. Pretty sure you’d need a crowbar to pry him off me. Or me off him. The distinction between who is kissing whom was lost long ago. I see my date, Davis, out of the corner of my eye, and I’m about to shove this two-hundred-pound sack of hard muscle and overconfident heat off of me and slap him, but sweet merciful deity, I swear Hamish’s lips have some kind of magic potion on them that renders me spellbound. No kiss has ever tasted like this. Except the last kiss from him.

This was a story I’ve been looking forward to. It was worth the wait and so much more!
I love this series and when I met Hamish I was already excited to read this story even if it wasn’t on the cards yet.
The witty retorts and memorable quotes totally got me! I smiled so hard it hurt!
Hamish and Amy could bring the best but also the bad in each other. They made me laugh tons, made me swoon a lot and brought the slow burn to another level. I was definitely rooting for these two!!
Amy’s mission and job was to keep him on line. It should have been easy for Amy, focused and sharp. Unfortunately Hamish knew perfectly how to push her buttons and well she wasn’t totally immune to his charms. A strong woman who had the need to be in control met the impulsive, cocky, sexy and flirt football player, well all bets were off!
Hamish… damn you too charming and endearing guy. I loved how he could rile up Amy’s without even trying and she was giving a run for his money so amazingly. A man with a big heart, giving love to people and owning his actions whether it might lead to a scandal. Honest and real. Infuriating and sexy… le freaking sigh!
Started a wild journey to avoid new scandals, between crazy “Jersey chasers”, characters chasing the other, driving the other crazy and among all other things. I adored how the main characters could reveal so much of themselves, raw and with no filter. Full of layers, plenty of laughing out loud moments and beautiful emotions driven by their chemistry and banter off the charts!
I have so much love for this story. An hilarious and offbeat chaos where both Hamish and Amy navigated through it with passion and humor, great friends and family (loud, noisy and funny).
