In the tradition of E.L. James and Sylvia Day comes a sultry new series starring women who want to live out their wildest dreams . . .

Online, any fantasy is possible. But when virtual lovers decide to meet in real life, the temperature rises-and so do the stakes.

Safety. Anonymity. Invisibility. Those are just a few advantages of Internet "dating." Even better, as far as Hannah Miller is concerned, is the fact that she can shed all inhibitions without worrying about what he thinks of her figure or her face. "He" is bikerboy357, the man who knows what Hannah likes, and wants her-every night-as much as she wants him. When he asks to meet, Hannah hesitates. But the temptation is too strong. And after one look into his sultry green eyes, there's no turning back.

Cade McKenzie's never met a woman who wasn't blinded by his billion-dollar net worth, but "JustAGurl456" knows neither his face nor his name. Her words are so smart, sweet, and scorchingly sexy that Cade's willing to gamble she'll be just as amazing in person. And she is. But even as every delicious encounter makes Cade want Hannah more, what he wants most is her trust. It's something all his money can't buy. And now, Cade will do anything to earn it . . .

There hasn't been a story as fresh and unique as BIDDING ON THE BILLIONAIRE since You've Got Mail delighted movie-goers back in the 70s. Internet surfing, chat rooms and cybersex lead Cade and Hannah to want wonder what would happen if they met face-to-face. The author pens this tale beautifully, hitting all the emotional high spots, giving the hero and heroine not only a sexual attraction like no other, but weaving the characters together so you simply must root for their happily-ever-after. Great job, JM Stewart! Great book!

The only time Hannah Miller feels sexy is when she's online chatting with her Harley riding lawyer from San Diego. He doesn't see her scars. She can relax and be herself. She's enjoying the rush. What's going to happen now that he's in Seattle for two weeks and wants to meet her? The interaction between Hannah and Cade is amazing. Their no strings relationship is very sensual. Their dialogue was flirty and humorous. I loved the nickname she gave him. It made me smile. I was drawn into their romance by their desire and their vulnerability. I couldn't stop reading Bidding On The Billionaire. I love JM Stewart's writing. She makes her stories come to life. She creates characters that I care about and situations that keep me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait for the next Book in The Seattle Bachelors series.

Bidding on the Billionaire is book one in the Seattle Bachelors series. I loved that the story focused on two people who met online and are having an internet based "relationship" are our stars. It all started because Hannah Miller, a bookstore owner that specializes in rare books wound up stocking more in demand books, genres like erotica. She wants to be able to know what she's stocking so she read a hot new release and wound up in a forum/chat room and disagreeing with someone's viewpoint. Enter Cade MacKenzie, he's a super wealthy lawyer that's been burned in the past. I love that his character is an erotica reader, you don't see that much in books! Anyway, work brings Cade to Seattle, where Hannah lives and he convinces her that they should meet up. Mind you they've never seen each other in person, they've just known each other via instant messenger, no pictures, nothing. Secrets pop up, lies are revealed and passion is full force. Our story starts off steamy and gets scorching hot as it progresses. I had never read a JM Stewart book before, but I'm a fan now! I did feel it was a bit lighter on the billionaire flash that we normally see in this type of book, which I'm thankful for. Some of my favorite bits in the story were the characters themselves. They're both damaged from being burned in the past, but they make a great pair together. I also really liked that they met online, it felt a bit more realistic to how a lot of people currently meet, though I'm sure not too many meets while arguing over erotica. Lastly, I love when rules are laid down that it would be no strings attached. I like to see who is the first to realize that they do want strings. All in all, I really enjoyed Bidding on the Billionaire and suggest it if you're looking for a different type of billionaire book.

**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review** Aaaaaaand I have yet another new book boyfriend. Cade might be a billionaire and hot as hell, but he's not cocky or arrogant. I adored his soft-heart and sensitivity. Le sigh. And the heat between him & Hannah...yeah. Explicit,, but written with taste. I want more!! Only one negative...while the story hooked me right off the bat, the first chapter had too much back story thrown in for my taste. I prefer a hint of the who, what, when, & where, but only give me enough to keep me wondering. The story, however, was so intriguing and well written, that I can't steal a star. I can't wait for the next installment.

I received an ARC via Net-Galley in exchange for an honest review! 4.5 Stars Bidding on the Billionaire is well written, the story flows. The characters are developed. This is a story of building trust, healing from the past, falling in love and it's damn hot. Safety. Anonymity. Invisibility those are the upside things to on-line dating. Bikerboy is Cade MacKenzie, he is a billionaire who has been taken advantage of many times so he is not trusting of women wanting him for him, and not for what he can give them. Hannah has been let down by many guys, due to her looks so she looks to on-line chatting. She meets bikerboy357 in a chat room and they start an on-line relationship. After a while Bikerboy asks her to call. Hannah is nervous and isn't sure. The relationship then moves to phone calls. He then wants to meet Hannah when he is in Seattle on business. Hannah hasn't been honest about her looks to him, but will he still want to be with her when he see's what she looks likes. Will they be able to take their relationship from on-line and phone to the real deal? I throughly enjoyed learning about Hannah and Cade. I look forward to the next book in this series!

I received and ARC of this book for an honest review. Hannah Miller has been used and called due to her appearance by men in the past so she has major trust issues where men are concerned, when she starts to 'chat' to bikerboy357 about a book they have both read and they start to have real discussions on books, life and their wants she finds that this way of dating does not hurt and she can be who she really is and lose all her inhibitions as they have not swapped real names and they go by their chat room names. Cade MacKenzie is a Billionaire and has been taken advantage of in the past so he is gun shy with women as they generally only want him for his money or position, however he feels comfortable chatting to H, she does not know him so he knows their discussions are real. After months of chatting every day Cade asks Hannah can he call her. When Cade asks Hannah can he call her, she does not know what to do as she wants to hear his voice but she is frightened so Cade puts the ball in her court and gives her is number. Well the saying is- one thing leads to another and the online dating leads to meeting in person. One little hitch though Hannah had told Cade she is Blonde with long legs as she perceives this to be what men want and she is not. This story is about trust, friendship, healing, romance, love and finding the one. It is also a HOT one. I loved the way this story pans out and how the secondary characters are involved, I am now waiting with baited breath for the next installment. WOW Joanne Stewart what an amazing book.

Bidding on the Billionaire is JM Stewart’s first book in The Seattle Bachelors Series. I was hooked from the outset. From the opening pages I fell in love with Maddie. She had so many insecurities between losing her parents in a car accident that caused her both emotional and physical scarring and dealing with a lost first love Maddie’s character was one you wanted to cheer for. You wanted her to find someone that would help her deal with all of the baggage she was carrying. And she found that with Cade. Cade was a successful lawyer that was also dealing with his own lost love. He’d lost his fiancée but also felt controlled by his father. Maddie and Cade met up on a message board discussing a book. They chatted almost nightly and shared truths with each other they didn’t feel comfortable sharing with anyone else. And then one night, Cade wanted to change it up. He wanted to speak with her directly on the telephone. Once they spoke, neither Cade nor Maddie could go back. What they found neither was looking for. Maddie promised two weeks but Cade wanted so much more. And in the end, did Cade get his wish? Did he get more than two weeks? And did Maddie learn to deal with her physical scars and learn to trust again? Billing on the Billionaire was one of those books that had me from the get go. I found myself cheering for both Cade and Maddie. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for Ms. Stewart’s next release in the series. I’d like to disclose that I received a copy of Bidding on the Billionaire in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This one is very intriguing because Hannah and Cade have an online relationship going on that's definitely on the hotter side. No true identities are known, but soon it's not enough. A big change is coming once they meet in person. Will the sparks still be there once Cade gets a look at Hannah. Hannah hasn't been completely truthful on her looks. How he reacts and the way Cade makes Hannah feel is such a beautiful thing. Hannah has been hurt before and believes no one will accept her for and stay so when things start to escalate between them she has the flight response. Can Cade prove he's staying and wants a future with her not just a two week fling? Or will Hannah's self doubt be too much to overcome? The heat level is very high this one and the characters have a lot of chemistry. After the very beginning it took me a little to get into the story, but I wasn't disappointed because I gobbled up this book pretty fast. I like the set up for the next book because we get a little insight and history for the next couple.

I must admit, I took a walk down memory lane reading this book! I met my now husband through a Chat Room/Instant Message on AOL over 18 years ago, so the nerves and excitement they felt hearing the voice for the first time and meeting in person after talking for months via messages felt so familiar. They are a sexy couple, and going along on their hot adventure was a thrill! A fast, fun read. Hannah Miller has given up on dating men, but she sure is enjoying her online fling with "bikerboy357"! Being able to hide behind a monitor, helps her to shed her insecurities and be the sexy vixen that she has buried deep inside. Cade McKenzie is a gorgeous billionaire who has been played by women just wanting his money and prestige one too many times. He's happy to relax and just plain enjoy time with a woman who has no clue who he is for a change ... until temptation gets the best of him and he decides he just has to meet her. Will Hannah and Cade be disappointed by the "real" people they meet when they get together for coffee in Seattle? Will the hot chemistry still flare between them? ** Received free in exchange for an honest review **

Hot, fast, fun, sexy and then some more . . . Online persona the real me. Hannah had much to offer but it was behind the screen of 'H'. She was more than she gave herself credit for. With this false sense of security she let all her inhibitions out. She played her fantasies without shame. So much so that bikerboy357 (Cade) wants more than a few chats online and some conversation. He wants in person. Physical contact. Skin-on-skin. Hot, fast, fun, sexy, and then some. This read was enjoyable. Makes me want to have the next Seattle bachelor come knocking on my door. JM Stewart did a great job keeping me engaged and turning pages. **This ARC was provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

Hannah and Cade's relationship progressed out of the need for a connection with the outside world. No judgement, just acceptance and companionship. It worked better than either expected and though they long for something more, the secrets they hide, the trust lacked and the fear or rejection keep them apart. I received an ARC of Bidding on the Billionaire by JM Stewart in exchange for an honest review. I was prepared for this story to be weird, cheesy and redundant. It was none of those. Bidding on the Billionaire IS a little weird, but beyond that it is a story about conquering fear. Central themes of hope, loneliness, rejection, grief and prejudice are also explored. Cade and Hannah actually ended up being one of the purest love stories I have every read. It is a story of empathy, healing and purity. Done in a way that proves sexy and heartbreakingly beautiful.
