Everywhere and Every Way (Billionaire Builders #1) by Jennifer Probst


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?

Kristine's Review:
Reviewed: June 2016.

I have been a long time fan of Jennifer Probst's work, from her Wedding and  Searching series, the intermingling of characters, the angst, the drama, the romance, the sexy will they won't they dance, everything about Probst's words have me captivated. As I took my first steps into her new creation I was entranced, this story immediately captivated me and I was sure I'd found another winner, Morgan Raines is smart, sassy and a consummate professional, she isn't afraid to play with the big boys, she's not easily intimidated, nor will she run away at the first sign of trouble. Caleb Pierce had somewhere along the line lost most of what he once held dear, in quick succession he lost his mother, then his fiancĂ©, and then his brothers, left behind managing the family business along with his father, Caleb's life revolved around all work and no play. When his father dies suddenly and his brothers return Caleb is about to rediscover exactly what family means to him.

The chemistry between Morgan and Caleb is undeniable, electric immediately, with synapses firing between the two from their very first meeting, there is certainly no question that these two are made for one another. With their quick wit, their ability to fuel the raging inferno between them with glances and words alone. Both so similar in so many ways, devoting their lives to their profession, sacrificing personal joys and milestones to focus on building their businesses, both experiencing trials and tribulations that altered their original path and forced them to reassess what they wanted.

While there were moments where I absolutely loved Everywhere and Every Way, the back and forth banter, the smouldering gazes, the side glances and heated moments of contact, moments that I could drown in their budding romance, revel in their story, there was something about it that missed the 5 Lipstick mark for me, while I felt their connection  early on, the ending felt rushed for me, losing that elusive IT factor that would deem this a new favourite. I'm interested to see where Ms Probst takes this series next with two brothers both vying for attention, I'm certainly intrigued by the lives of the other Pierce brothers.
