“Winning the Billionaire” is a great friends to lovers romance. I was hooked from the beginning to the end. You get an entertaining storyline with humor, sadness, and passion. As Sebastian and Christina struggle through this journey you feel the emotions and struggles that they are going through.
“Winning the Billionaire” by J.M. Stewart is book number two in the “Seattle Bachelors” series. The book can be read as a standalone. But I want to go back and read the first book since I loved this one so much. This is software mogul, Christina “Tina” McKenzie and playboy billionaire, Sebastian “Baz” Blake’s story.
Christina and Sebastian have known each other since they were kids. She has always loved Sebastian. But he is off limits since he is her brother’s best friend and a playboy.
Sebastian never does relationships to try to avoid being hurt. He has always wanted his dad’s love and approval, but never seemed to measure up to what his dad wanted. Christina and her brother are more like a family to him. Sebastian has always been attracted to Christina but feels that she deserves more than he can give her. He also doesn’t want to jeopardize his friendship with her or her brother.
Sebastian is vulnerable due to the stress from his dad’s passing and the stipulations of the will. So, when Christina pops in and tries to comfort him the lines begin to blur between just being friends and being more. Christina wants true love and is determined not to settle for anything else. She doesn’t want to be another notch on his bedposts.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Forever (Grand Central Publishing) for an honest review. FYI, includes mature content.
This is a perfect book to read on a vacation or when you just need to get away for a little while.
