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?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
HGTV meets steamy romance in the first book in the Billionaire Builders series. Caleb Pierce is a luxury contractor with a tough-guy attitude and a family business on the rocks, so the last thing he needs is celebrity designer Morgan Raines micromanaging his project. Witty banter, a volatile couple, and sizzling sexual tension make Everywhere and Every Way a delicious contemporary romance.
Probst (Searching for You) creates her own spin on HGTV's Property Brothers with her sensuous contemporary, the first of three romances about three feuding brothers who inherit their father's luxury contracting business. Caleb Pierce has long been estranged from younger brothers Tristan and Dalton. But when their father dies, he throws the brothers for a loop with the terms of his will: they must work together for a full year and show a profit in order to inherit. In walks Morgan Raines, a home designer working with an A-list celebrity couple and she'll stop at nothing to get the Pierce brothers to build that dream house. Sparks fly between Morgan and Caleb after he agrees to do the job, and resentment soon turns to grudging admiration, then deep lust. But it's not clear whether Morgan and Caleb can successfully mix business with pleasure. Probst tugs at the heartstrings with feisty Morgan, strong and silent Caleb, and an array of appealing supporting characters. Readers will root for Caleb and Morgan's quest for happily ever after and will eagerly await the next in the series.
a story that will have you searching construction sites for a man
Stars: Overall: 4 Narration: 5 Story 4
A dual-perspective story is the basis for this story. Siblings, mischievous dogs, an uptight designer and a touch of the Southern Belle blend to create a story that will have you searching construction sites for a man like Caleb. Oh yes, it is fun, funny, sexy and heartfelt with plenty of moments to enjoy.
Caleb is the eldest brother in the Pierce family, expecting to have control of the family business after the death of his father. Years of stress from dealing with a manipulative and difficult father should have ended. Instead the stipulations require him to bring his estranged brothers into the company to live and work together. As if that isn’t enough to deal with, Morgan Raines, has hired him to build a home to her exacting specifications. On two fronts, Caleb expects nothing but walking on eggshells for the next while.
Morgan is exacting, demanding and ALWAYS gets what she wants, even if she has to appear at work in pink work boots. Holding on to her proper is a habit, but she also never lets on the pain or secret she keeps inside. Oh yes, there is a solid, knee shaking instant reaction to Caleb, and their control issues will bounce off one another far sooner and more often than their lips will connect. At first. One can only hope. Morgan is solidly female, strong, and intelligent and knows what she likes and wants. Caleb couldn’t be more different than his brothers, and while he does find stings in the barbs thrown, his honest desire is to make everything work – and then find happiness.
Narration for this story is provided by Sebastian York and Madeleine Maby. I adored the solid portrayals, as both added elements to the characters that felt intuitive and appropriate, never over emoting or letting the moment fall flat. Probst’s writing is perfectly paced and each moment is nuanced to show the characters in every living and breathing moment, flaws and all. Truly wonderful narration allowed those elements to shine and held my attention, giving everyone a voice and memorable place.
I received an audiobook copy of the title from Simon and Schuster Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Everywhere and every way
A very enjoyable story.
Everywhere and Every way.
There is nothing more sexy than a hardworking, control freak, bad boy and sexy, that would be Caleb. But when he met Morgan she healed every broken part of his life and he did the same for her..
Cal was a home builder along with his three brothers and Morgan was best Interior Designer in the states. They were building a home for a client of Morgan's. Together they all found each other.
Loved this book.
