My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher*

In Claiming the Billionaire, Cassie Stephanopoulos is reunited with the boyfriend she lost three years ago, Tyler Benson. As a result of his experiences in Iraq, Tyler isn’t the same man Cassie knew him as before, and yet, he’s just as determined to win her heart. Despite the way they left things before he left for Iraq.

Claiming the Billionaire is an emotional read that tugged at my heartstrings as easily as the sex scenes burned up the pages of my kindle. Cassie and Ty’s reunion was fantastic and unique and heartbreaking all at the same time. What they both experienced during their time apart, combined with their undeniable chemistry and need to figure things out between them now, made for a terrific, fast-paced read that was impossible to put down or to forget.

If you’re even remotely thinking of picking up one of these books, I highly recommend doing it. Every single book has been a sexy, compelling read right from the start and the talented skill level of the author has made each story impossible to put down.  I started with the first book in this series, Bidding on the Billionaire, but you can just as easily jump in with the newest release, Claiming the Billionaire, because every single story in this series is brilliant.

Final Verdict: A fantastic way to spend a cold, winner night. 5 “Must Read” Stars

The Seattle Bachelors Series

Every single book in author J.M. Stewart’s Seattle Bachelors series has been well-written, dynamic, engaging, and hot like fire. Each set of lead characters has been increasingly well-developed and motivated, as well as entertaining, emotionally compelling, and deeply intriguing. I’ve loved each one of the couples in this series and have been completely enamored with their individual stories to boot. These fictional characters feel like real people with real problems and emotions that made it all too easy for me to like and relate to them, and to root for them to find their happily ever afters. If you’re anything like I am, you’re going to fall in love with this series…

Book Summary

Safety. Anonymity. Invisibility.

Those are just a few advantages of Internet “dating.” Even better, as far as Hannah Miller is concerned, is the fact that she can shed all inhibitions without worrying about what he thinks of her figure or her face. “He” is bikerboy357, the man who knows what Hannah likes, and wants her—every night—as much as she wants him. When he asks to meet, Hannah hesitates. But the temptation is too strong. And after one look into his sultry green eyes, there’s no turning back.

Cade MacKenzie’s never met a woman who’s wasn’t blinded by his billion-dollar net worth, but “H” knows neither his face nor his name. Her words are so smart, sweet, and scorchingly sexy that Cade’s willing to gamble she’ll be just as amazing in person. And she is. But even as every delicious encounter makes Cade want Hannah more, what he wants most is her trust.

It’s something all his money can’t buy. And now, Cade will do anything to earn it.
