This tale was both exciting and emotional. Stewart develops her plot and her scene in a seamless manner that really allowed me to enjoy each moment of it. I loved the way that I really got to know everyone while also becoming part of their lives. The tale was sizzling hot while also filled with realism that allows you to get really close to the characters.

Stewart really lets readers know the characters on a deep level. Their emotions, hopes, and dreams are apparent throughout as are their belie

“All-in-all, this is a standard friends-to-lovers story with very little drama or angsts. There’s not a lot to get emotionally invested so it’s a great read to pass the afternoon with.”

I really enjoyed Bidding on the Billionaire and after the little teaser excerpt for Winning the Billionaire I knew I’d be picking up to see what was in store for Christina and Sebastian and I wasn’t disappointed. It was sweet, sexy and had me rooting for Tina and Baz to figure out their issues so they could have the HEA they deserve.

Christina has led a privileged life, though she has known tragedy, and on top of all of that she is extremely smart and yet isn’t arrogant about any of it. She works

Some Billionaire books can be a hit or miss with me because they all seem the same but Winning the Billionaire definitely had a uniqueness to it that had me hooked from the beginning. This is my first book by Stewart and needless to say I will be looking to reading more from her in the future.

Since I didn't read the first book in this series I wasn't really sure what to expect going into this but I really liked Sebastian and Cristina's story. These two have known each other since they were kids

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 r ...more

Somebody, please get me a fan and a bucket of cold water, because this book is HOT!! I am a HUGE fan of billionaire romance books, and although this book falls in the category of billionaire romance, it is not your typical storyline, and for that, I’m grateful to Stewart. Christina has been in love with her brothers best friend, Sebastian, for as long as she can remember, but Sebastian is a notorious billionaire playboy.

Christina McKenzie is the CEO of her own software company, McKenzie Inc. Yet, she has spent many years fantasizing about her twin brother Caden’s best friend, Sebastian Blake. Caden and Sebastian have been best friends since they were in the first grade. They were both there when Sebastian’s mother left and know what the relationship between him and his father is. However, it annoys Christina to no end that Sebastian sees her only as the annoying little sister and not the woman she is today.

First J. M. Stewart book and it’s been delightful! Simple but enjoyable story with really great main character and hot love interest!

Billionaire romance is one of my fave genres to read. I mean I love the Cinderella poor-woman-meets-prince-charming-and-they-fall-in-love type but it's always a good thing to be surprised with something a bit different but still under the same trope. And Winning

Sometimes people come up with the craziest reasons as to why they shouldn’t be together. Even when they love someone, they hide behind reasons and excuses until they finally believe them completely. Unfortunately this has been the case for Baz and Tina – they thought they knew each other but they really had no clue.

Christina has been in love with Sebastian for practically forever. Her twin brother’s best friend, Baz was always in her life… even if he did seem to view

"She’d known Sebastian for over twenty years, since that fateful day on the playground in first grade when he’d bumped her out of the way to get to the monkey bars. He and her twin brother, Caden, had been joined at the hip since. Oh, she’d seen him with his shirt off plenty of times over the years. She’d never seen him quite like this, however, one tiny little scrap of fabric from being stark naked, and her imagination filled in the gaps fine, thank you very much. She bit her bottom lip.

Winning the Billionaire by JM Stewart is the second book in her Seattle Bachelor's series. This book is about Sebastian and Christina, Caden's sister from book one. If you haven't read the first book you can still read this book without any problems as they can be read as stand alone books.

Christina has known Sebastian 'Baz', a notorious playboy and her twin brother's best friend, her whole life and has been in love with him most of it but Baz still sees her as his best friends little sister. Ha
After reading and falling for Caden and Hannah in the first book of this series, I was excited to finally get to Caden's sister Christina and her long-time crush and Caden's best friend Sebastian and their road to a possible HEA. And for the most part this book is a good read, but I didn't love it quite as much as I did the first book.

Sebastian has spent the majority of his life trying to gain his father's approval, but unfortunately that never happened. To add more salt to the wound, his father

The sibling’s best friend trope is one of my favorites and Stewart handles it so very well. I appreciate that things aren’t drawn out overlong – yes, it’s been simmering for years, but once the cats out of the bag things get rolling quickly.

Sebastian has issues with relationships, thanks to his parents, so he’s already hesitant to get involved with Christina. Add in that she’s his best friend’s twin, that they all practically grew up together, and it makes a complicated situation even worse. Bu

Although this is the second book in the billionaire series it can be read as a standalone even though I urge you to read the first one. This story focuses on Christina and Sebastian.

Christina always thought that Sebastian thought of her as the annoying little sister of his best friend Cade. For as long as she can remember she's been in love with him but he's a player. She's tried to forget him and just be friends but after the death of Sebastian's father she felt he needed her.

Oh My! Sebastian and Christina’s story is one fantastic and emotional story that will keep you hooked from start to finish-their story is electric, they are hot together.

Christina McKenzie has loved her brother's best friend Sebastian Blake since they were kids. After Sebastian suffers a loss, Christina goes to comfort her friend but Baz wants more from her than comfort.

Sebastian knows Christina is too good for him but after a mind blowing night the tables are turned and he wants more than one night with her. Can he convince Christina he is ready to hang up his playboy ways?

I love the Seattle Bachelor Series. This is book 2 can be read as a standalone but you will end up wanting to read the first book as well, to learn more about the characters.

I loved this book, this author pulls you in with her stories from the beginning and leave you wanting so much more at the end of the book.

Story is well written, flows very well, and the characters are developed.

Quick and dirty but oh so good review:
Overall love. Sebastian and his journey awesome. How he went after Christina was amazeballs. His weekend incredible. Didn’t like what she did though and so glad Sebastian was a grizzly bear after honey there.
So breakdown:
Plot: fun and quirky. Sexy and saucy.
Characters: Love Sebastian and how he came around and came to terms with his feelings and who he was. Love his dogged pursuit of Christina. Christina had some insecurities but was sweet and like a mother

"Winning the Billionaire" by JM Stewart. Here we have the tale of Christina and Sebastian. They, along with Christina's twin brother, have been best friends since childhood, but have never acted on the attraction. I liked Christina - she's strong, independent and can take care of herself. Yet, I loved when her vulnerable and tender side came out. Sebastian is your typical playboy and, despite being hunky and sexy, fights to not believe his father's beliefs about him.

The second book in the Seattle Billionaires series, is a good old romance that'll leave you feeling just plain good at the end of the story. There isn't anything deep about the story, but the characters are well developed and have quite a lot of depth and definitely passion between them. Sebastian and Christina are perfect for each other, life long friends who've taken nearly their entire lives to finally figure each other out.

JM Stewart writes heartfelt contemporary romance. Whether the heat level is sizzling or sweet, her stories are always deeply emotional. Her heroes are strong but sensitive (no alpha jerks here!), and her heroines are more Cinderella than Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
