Claiming the Billionaire, JM Stewart

Claiming the Billionaire,  JM Stewart

Claiming the Billionaire (Seattle Bachelors Book 4) by [Stewart, JM]

Genre:   Romance,

I was looking forward to this, sometimes I love a simple straightforward romance, one that’s easy to read, simple and full of fantasy, not in the paranormal sense but in the characters, the rich/famous/powerful guy/girl falling in love with the one without money/job/prestige etc.
I thought with the “billionaire” tag that’s what this would be, but in fact that could have been left out of the title as it really wasn’t relevant, only really featured in the billionaire bachelorette auction and was a really tenuous connection.

So its a cute story, but didn’t feel genuine to me. I kind of understood why they split, why Cassandra was scared of commitment, but it was a little odd. Would she really have had such an extreme reaction, just before he’s being deployed again? Was it really such a  surprise? Hadn’t they talked about where the relationship was going?
For an intelligent lady Cassandra is also very blinkered about recognising Tyler’s issues, and I felt she would have picked up on his problems sooner.

I didn’t understand why he went to the lengths of the auction – and all that money he hadn’t actually got – for a date. Why not just try speaking to her first? Why wait a week before crashing in her world. He surely could see that wasn’t going to go down well, after what had gone down between them.

Its just felt very light and fluffy, filled with sex that simply overtook that actual story, and had me skimming through to see what was going to happen.
I love sex in books when it feel right, feels relevant to the story, feels as though its inevitable between the characters, where there’s been so much build up that it just has to happen. Here though? Just felt forced, and padded out a – for me – thin  storyline.

It’ll be perfect for others, thankfully we all enjoy different types of stories but for me it was a fail 😦

Stars: Two, perfect for others but sadly not for me.
