REVIEW: Winning the Billionaire by J.M. Stewart

Posted July 17th, 2016 by in Blog, Contemporary Romance, HJ Top Pick!, Review / 12 comments



Winning-the-BillionaireWinning the Billionaire by J.M. Stewart is a well-written tale about two friends who discover just how much they need each other. The characters are well-developed and highly enjoyable.

Christina McKenzie has loved Sebastian Blake for a long time. They’ve known each other for over twenty years, but Sebastian is unattainable. He’s sexy, successful, and treats her like a kid sister…until one moment, when he doesn’t. Christina is in the shock of her life when Mr. Playboy does the unexpected and plants a demanding kiss on her. One that leaves her breathless and aching for more.

Sebastian is the only man to have a piece of her heart and the only man who can really break it. I can see why Christina treads lightly with him. She’s already had one bad relationship that left her with a bad taste and with Sebastian’s reputation, it’s easy to why Christina doesn’t realize how true his feelings are for her. But Sebastian refuses to their relationship go back to the friend zone.

“Now, after having made love to you, the thought of going back to the way we were makes my gut ache. I’ll never be able to go back to those meaningless flings. This time with you has changed me.”

Sebastian and Christina burn the pages up in this sexy and addictive read. The author did a wonderful job at creating these characters to where I felt like I was in the background, watching their romance play out. I thought the conditions left for Sebastian, in order to save his own company, only added to the story and was pleased how much Sebastian was willing to give up. I also really enjoyed how both characters were on equal footing, money wise. Christina didn’t need anything from Sebastian, except his love and that was the focus. If you need a quick read, filled with romance and sexy characters, I would highly recommend this book.

    I’m not a huge fan of BDSM. Is this book heavy on that type of content?

    • Joanne Stewart

      I hope it’s okay if I answer this…I’m the author and I promise there’s none. I’ve never written BDSM in my stories (and probably never will; I don’t trust myself to be able to do it justice…my voice/style is just too sweet). 🙂

        Yay!! Thank you so much for replying. I’m not very comfortable reading it, so I appreciate your “sweet” style. 🙂 I was so excited for the Seattle Bachelor books after discovering Her Soldier’s Touch and Luc. I put them all on my Amazon wish list, but I didn’t have an opportunity until now to ask about their content. Also, since I’m a Washingtonian, I like that they take place in Seattle.

          I will say this one IS spicy. This series is erotic, so the love scenes are more detailed than HST or Luc. I just kind of took my usual style and turned up the heat a bit. Nice to meet to another Washingtonian, BTW! We’ve lived here for about 12 years or so now and I love the area, so it’s making its way into my stories. Luc is also set in Washington, on Whidbey Island. 🙂

            Thanks again and I’m A-OK with more “heat.” 😉 Congrats on all of the great reviews. I’ve subscribed to your website so I’ll be able to keep up with your releases. Have a great day!
