Hot on the heels of her beloved Marriage to a Billionaire novels, New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst nails it with the first in an all-new sexy romance series featuring red-hot contractor siblings who give the Property Brothers a run for their money! Ever the responsible eldest brother, Caleb Pierce started working for his father’s luxury contracting business at a young age, dreaming of one day sitting in the boss’s chair. But his father’s will throws a wrench in his plans by stipulating that Caleb share control of the family business with his two estranged brothers. Things only get more complicated when demanding high-end home designer Morgan hires Caleb to build her a customized dream house that matches her specifications to a T—or she’ll use her powerful connections to poison the Pierce brothers’ reputation. Not one to ignore a challenge, Caleb vows to get the job done—if only he can stop getting distracted by his new client’s perfect…amenities. But there’s more to icy Morgan than meets the eye. And Caleb’s not the only one who knows how to use a stud-finder. In fact, Morgan is pretty sure she’s found hers—and he looks quite enticing in a hard hat. As sparks fly between Morgan and Caleb despite his best intentions not to mix business and pleasure, will she finally warm up and help him lay the foundation for everlasting love?
Being such a huge fan of Ms. Probst's Marriage to a Billionaire and Searching For books; I was ecstatic to learn that she had written a new series, Billionaire Builders. The first book in the series had all of the elements that have come to make me love Probst's books; such as her signature wit, dreamy male leads, and sassy, strong and intelligent female characters. The themes of family and friendship are beautifully woven into the story.
Everywhere and Every Way is the story of oldest sibling Caleb "Cal" Pierce and Morgan Raines. Cal has been estranged from his two younger brothers, Tristan and Dalton for the last couple of years. However, when Cal's father suddenly and unexpededly dies of a heat attack, the Pierce brothers are brought together once again.
Their father's will states that Cal, Tristan, and Dalton, must live in the same home, and run the family building business within a certain profit margin for a year, or relinquish their shares/inheritance. The three brothers agree to the terms of the will, but have a lot of unresolved anger, hurt, and jealousy towards one another that was never resolved.
Morgan is a high-end designer, and wants only the best for her clients. Therefore, when Cal turns her down to build a house for her wealthy and prominent clients, she resorts to underhandedness to get what she wants.
While initially Cal and Morgan do not like each other, they learn that there is a lot more to one another than their preconceived ideas. As Cal and Morgan work hard day after day, they grow closer to one another, and begin to develop feelings for each other. When Cal proposes a monogamous relationship for the six months it will take to build their clients home, Morgan agrees. However, what will happen when the six months come to an end?
I loved getting to know the Pierce brothers and their unique personalities. I am looking forward to getting both Tristan and Dalton's stories. I am especially looking forward to a woman putting Dalton in his place. He is use to getting any woman he wants, and then leaving them for the next one. Secondary character, Raven, is going to be his perfect match. She is the first woman who isn't throwing herself at his feet. I also loved Sydney, Cal's assistant. It is obvious that Tristan and Sydney share an attraction and history with one another. I am dying to know everything!!! I can't wait for these next two books.
I loved Cal and Morgan's story. They were two characters with tragic pasts and a lot of depth. They shared the same passion for building, had an off-the- charts intense and carnal attraction towards one another, and were the missing piece that made the other whole. If you are a fan of well-written contemporary romance, amazing characters, lots of swooning, tight family and friendships, and explosive build-up, this book needs to be added to your TBR list!
I give, Everywhere and Every Way, by Jennifer Probst, 4 witty, fun, smoking-hot romance filled stars! This is a great beginning and introduction in to the Billionaire Builders Series!
