Winning the Billionaire (Seattle Bachelors, #2)Winning the Billionaire by J.M. Stewart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bidding on the Billionaire was my introduction to JM Stewart. That one story left an indelible mark on my soul. The way she handled Cade and Hannah's at times unorthodox love story was beautiful. She gave me the chance to fall in love with the individuals before I became wrapped up in the couple. A unique concept that if done right has lasting impact. Winning the Billionaire continues that concept with Christina and Sebastian's romance. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review and although this couples foray into love was not as unconventional as the previous story's, it had it's share of issues. Tina cares deeply, has a successful career and the smarts to keep it that way BUT, her biggest failures are in matters of the heart. She pines for the one person that she knows will never want her. Baz, has a phobia of being left behind. From childhood to adulthood he has carried the burden of feeling unlovable by the people who mattered most. His connection to The McKenzies' particularly Cade and Christina are his most prized possessions. Losing that is unacceptable. Ms. Stewart has become another addition to my MUST READ list. Her seductive stories bring more to the table than sex. This author appeals to the heart of her readers as well with well written stories that leave a lasting footprint after the last page is turned.

“Damn it, Christina.” He pivoted and stalked across the space between them, backed her against the counter behind her, and set his hands on either side of her. His eyes narrowed, his gaze hot and confrontational. “Go. Home.”
More than a little surprised by his sudden nearness, she swallowed hard, her heart hammering a mile a minute. He was so close, his every breath whispered over her lips, warm, with a slight hint of mint that made her yearn to discover the flavor on his tongue. She ignored the intense desire to close the remaining inches between them and held her ground. This wasn’t about her desire. He needed her, whether he wanted to admit it or not.
She angled her chin higher. “Or what? I’m not afraid of you. You can’t boss me around.”
If he wanted a fight, though, she’d give him one, because she knew him enough to know he would attempt to intimidate her. No doubt in order to get her to leave him alone to his misery. If a subject had anything to do with emotion, he avoided it as if it were a highly contagious disease. She’d never let the tactic work before, and she wouldn’t now.
This time, though, he didn’t do what she expected him to. Rather, his right hand slid into her hair, and before she could blink, he pulled her mouth to his. He didn’t give her a chance to back away, to approve or deny his assault. His kiss wasn’t fleeting, either, or soft and seductive, the way she’d always envisioned. His lips plied hers, tugging and demanding. His tongue stroked the seam of her mouth, a hot slide that had her gasping and opening for him. He took full advantage and swept in, his tongue restless in her mouth.
She whimpered. What she needed to do was push him away. He wasn’t thinking clearly. He was lost in grief. Her body, however, didn’t seem to be listening. His mouth was warm and luscious, and her arms wound themselves around his neck. How many times over the years had she imagined this moment? How many times had she stroked herself to orgasm fantasizing about his hands and his mouth on her body? Yet the reality far exceeded the fantasy, and God help her, she didn’t have the strength to deny him.
Unfortunately, the fantasy didn’t last long. As abruptly as he’d grabbed her, he released her. His breaths came harsh and shallow, his chest heaving in time with the fierce pounding of her heart.
“That’s what. It’s been a shitty day, Tina, and I’m feeling very ornery and very needy.” As if to prove his point, he set his hands on the counter on either side of her and leaned into her, rocking his hips against hers.
The full press of his lean body against her had any thought of protest flitting away like wisps on a breeze. Sebastian was aroused, and his erection pressed into the softness of her stomach. He didn’t feel like a small boy, either. She itched to reach down and stroke the length of his cock. She longed to put an end to the wondering and finally discover exactly how big he really was, yearned to know the soft, intimate heat of his skin.
The intensity of his stare held her trapped. Sapphires. He had eyes the colors of deep, brilliant sapphires. They were usually intense and focused. Right then, they were in full seduction mode. Never in a million years would she have thought to find herself on the receiving end of that captivating stare. She’d never been the kind of girl who went all tongue-tied over a man, who giggled and sighed. She was a woman in a male-dominated industry; she could hold her own with most men. But right then? God help her, she wanted to do exactly that: giggle like a giddy schoolgirl and beg him to fuck her senseless.

Bidding on the Billionaire (Seattle Bachelors, #1)Bidding on the Billionaire by J.M. Stewart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hannah and Cade's relationship progressed out of the need for a connection with the outside world. No judgement, just acceptance and companionship. It worked better than either expected and though they long for something more, the secrets they hide, the trust lacked and the fear or rejection keep them apart. I received an ARC of Bidding on the Billionaire by JM Stewart in exchange for an honest review. I was prepared for this story to be weird, cheesy and redundant. It was none of those. Bidding on the Billionaire IS a little weird, but beyond that it is a story about conquering fear. Central themes of hope, loneliness, rejection, grief and prejudice are also explored. Cade and Hannah actually ended up being one of the purest love stories I have every read. It is a story of empathy, healing and purity. Done in a way that proves sexy and heartbreakingly beautiful.
