Fresh Fiction Review

Claiming the Billionaire

Romance Erotica Sensual | Romance Contemporary

CLAIMING THE BILLIONAIRE is book 4 in J.M. Stewart's Seattle Bachelors series. Like with the past two books in the series, the hero and heroine in CLAIMING THE BILLIONAIRE have a history. Three years ago, Cassie broke up with Tyler because she didn't want to face the uncertainty and pain that sometimes comes with being married to a soldier. What she didn't count on was that she couldn't turn off her love for Ty. Now Ty has come back home and proves to Cassie that true love never dies.

The first half of CLAIMING THE BILLIONAIRE focuses on Ty's mission to win back Cassie despite her fears. The second half of CLAIMING THE BILLIONAIRE focuses on Ty's struggle with PTSD and the impact that has on his relationship with Cassie. J.M. Stewart balances the heady romance with the more serious issues surrounding Ty's past trauma. This story, out of all the romances I've read that have similar themes, gives one of the best glimpses into what a soldier with PTSD goes through and how he tries to build his life back together when he's once again in civilian life.

I like that CLAIMING THE BILLIONAIRE shakes things up in the series by having a female billionaire. Cassie is a strong and independent woman, but J.M. Stewart does a great job of showing her sensitive side. I like that Ty brings out Cassie's playful side and how that translates to the bedroom. The trysts between Cassie and Ty are red- hot and explosive, but they are always crackling with sexual tension because of the deep emotional bond they have. Because of their three-year separation and the circumstances of Ty's long absence, there is a sense of immediacy to their passionate encounters.

CLAIMING THE BILLIONAIRE is about enduring love and a strong hero and heroine who fight to make their relationship work. Ty's family and Cassie's friends give the couple space to work through things on their own, but offer advice and a shoulder to lean on. As always, I look forward to the next steamy romance by J.M. Stewart.
