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?

Everywhere and Every Way

My Review

As it had been a few years since I read Probst, I’d forgotten just how easily her words take me to another place. You never quite know what you’re getting into, even with a seasoned author you adore, when you start a new series. Well, no need to worry here folks. Everywhere and Every Way was not only everything I hoped it would be and more, but it was the perfect introduction to Billionaire Builders and set up the future installments with an anticipatory gleam that I am salivating to get my hands on. It may have been advertised as Caleb and Morgan’s book but it ended up being so much more than that. It was truly a story of acceptance, heartbreak, forgiveness, humor, more touching moments than I can count, and a love so seamlessly and naturally formed that it will leave you with the confidence nothing in the world can break those bonds.

I love that this was a dual POV story because to truly understand the dynamics of the different relationships, you needed to be inside of Caleb’s head. I loved that this was first and foremost about salvaging a fractured family. As many heartbreaking moments as there were in this book, for me the majority came from the interactions and memories of the three brothers in better times. My heart ached for them to bridge the gaps and finds their way back to each other. You could clearly tell the love and camaraderie was there, but they were three stubborn men who only wanted to play the blame game and not actually have a productive conversation. They were all in pain from the death of their mother and disapproval from their father that instead of turning inwards and seeing the truth, they just lashed out at each other.

Morgan coming into their lives, I believe, was the pivotal turning point for them all; herself included. She was such a phenomenal character in my mind in the way that she overcame something so potentially devastating, yet came out stronger on the other side. I loved her independence but also her willingness to realize she was tired of being alone. Really she was just hiding behind a carefully crafted shield, hiding from the world and ignoring what she never thought she could have. To the world she had it all, and for a while, she was satisfied with that illusion. But she needed a little mess in her life and Cal needed a wake-up call. I was pulled into the story with their love-hate relationship right off the bat, but I was mercifully kept there while their gradual descent into passion and friendship began. There were so many stages to their relationship in this book and I felt like each one was crucial to building an everlasting bond. They achieved this in spades and it kept me flipping the pages to see what would come next.

There was a comfortableness in this book that you don’t see often anymore. There was no suspense, no overt drama, and just the right amount of steamy times. There was such a fantastic foundation woven between the pages and I felt like it correlated so well with the theme of the series. I loved their quiet moments, the moments when they would banter, and the moments when  you needed a fan from all the steam. They never seemed to have any problems speaking honestly with each other and I truly appreciated it. There was a true rawness and honesty that was expertly portrayed in this story than can only come from an author that knows her stuff. We already know from this book whom the leading lady will be for the other two brothers, and I cannot wait to get my hands on their stories. This is a series that will stand the test of time and I foresee myself reading it again. Contemporary romance at its best!

Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem as intrigued by him, and his multiple advances are met with rejection. When he offers to restore the bar back to its original glory, he begins to work with her on a daily basis, and falls harder.
