I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

The Stubborn Billionaire was a weird read for me in that for the first 50% of the book I was pretty sure that this book was going to be a 2 or 3 star read for me because I wasn't particularly impressed by what was going on in the beginning the book. I'm all for a wanting revenge to falling in love book, but in the case of the first half of this book, I just couldn't stand the hero of this book and that in turn had me really forcing myself to keep turning the pages instead of DNF-ing this book. Thankfully, the second half of this book was great and all-in-all I really liked it as a whole. 

While the hero was pretty despicable at the begging in my opinion at the end he ended up winning me over which really says something about this author's writing skill because by the end of the book I was just as in love with James as Sienna was. As for Sienna, from beginning to end I really liked her character. She was fairly innocent in how trusting she was, but at the same time she was really stubborn and independent and her character was my favorite aspect of the book. 

Moving on to the romance in this book, while I did dislike the first half of this book, now that I have finished it I am actually kind of happy that I disliked the beginning because it made the romance in this book all the more satisfying. As a reader, I was in the same boat as Sienna in the beginning with her hatred of James and as a result it made watching James realizing that he was an idiot and ass and that he truly loved Sienna all the more thrilling and also allowed me to really understand just how Sienna could fall in love with him because the bastard also won me over in the end. Plus, his horrible actions made it possible for the the scene at the ending where James has to "grovel" to get Sienna to forgive him and that was one of my favorite scenes in the entire book. 

Overall, despite my rough start with this book, I really enjoyed this contemporary romance. I highly recommend it to people who like the enemies to lovers trope and now I'm really looking forward to reading some more books by this author.
