I get this question a LOT, so I’m writing this blog post to try (try) to help readers figure out what the hell you’re supposed to do when it comes to my CRAZY, interconnected series issue.
So I’m going to ramble a little and explain that I had no idea when I started writing Her Billionaires back in 2012 that my books would become popular. I didn’t have a plan. I have (kinda, sorta) a plan now, but in 2012? Pfft. Nope. I was winging it.
Before I become *too* long-winded, the Shopping for a Billionaire series is 99.9% separate from my other books. Only Dr. Alex Derjian (from it’s Complicated and other books in the Her Billionaires series) appears — briefly — in the Shopping books. So it is its own world. You do not need to read my other books to get the full picture.
Shopping for a Billionaire (parts 1-5 in the boxed set)
Shopping for a Billionaire’s Fiancee (book 6)
Shopping for a CEO (book 7)
Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife (book 8)
Shopping for a CEO’s Fiancee (book 9)
Shopping for an Heir (book 10)
is the reading order for that series.
Now here’s the hard part:
All three of my other series do have significant crossover. Here’s my suggestion.
If you START with Her Billionaires, THEN read:
It’s Always Complicated
THEN read Random Acts of Crazy and the Random series (because Darla, the main character in Random Acts, appears in It’s Complicated as Josie’s niece and you will wonder who this crazy chick is).
Move on to Maliciously Obedient, Suspiciously Obedient, and Deliciously Obedient — which will make It’s Always Complicated make more sense.
Okay, so now I’m going to make a super insane suggestion, which goes like this:
An ALTERNATE approach would be:
Random Acts of Crazy
Random Acts of Trust
Random Acts of Fantasy
Random Acts of Hope
Randomly Ever After: Sam and Amy
Random Acts of Love
Random on Tour: Los Angeles
Merry Random Christmas
It’s Always Complicated
This is the approach I’d suggest for people who are diehard readers and who are book addicts who inhale words like I inhale coffee.
I wish I had an easier answer. All I can say is that the books come out of me the way they come out of me and I am sorry they’re kind of scrambled LOLOL.
The good news is that you can sample my books with the Free Series Starter Library and see which ones you like. 😉
