Family dynamics play a big part in the first book of The Billionaire Builders series, where dreams have been shattered and relationships were drastically changed one fateful night. The story focuses on the three Pierce brothers and the spirited woman who comes into their lives at a pivotal moment, where their decisions can lead to much loss or vastly improve their futures. There is a constant genuineness to the story, as Jennifer Probst turns her fictional circumstances into occurrences that could truly happen in real life. EVERYWHERE AND EVERY WAY has extremely emotional plus very believable developments.
Although Caleb Pierce thoroughly enjoys working for the family construction business, there are times when he wonders why. Like the occasions when the customers continuously change their minds about what they want. His biggest hurdle comes when his hope to run the company fades because the demands of his late father will make his two brothers work alongside him. Though the three have not gotten along in a long time, his father’s death alters all their plans and requires the company to make a profit over the next year. Caleb would really like for his only responsibility to be the construction of custom houses and not listening to any difficult clients, as his brothers give him enough grief. One woman is particularly insistent on any aspect of the home they are building for her to be precisely as she specifies.
Since Morgan Raines designs homes, she is an expert at knowing what will work best, and she wants Pierce Brothers to construct her latest endeavor. Though Caleb had not wanted to undertake the project at first, she made it impossible for him to refuse. Surprisingly, he is finding the job to be rewarding as he meets every one of her requirements. Though Caleb and Morgan challenge each other on a daily basis, they actually look forward to all their heated clashes, especially when they are sexually charged.
Jennifer Probst did not hold back when creating scenes which pit one character against another. Arguments are loud and sometimes hurtful, while reminiscing about the past often had me feeling their inner pain. The way family members treat each other is definitely convincing, as people are usually much more outspoken when they are familiar with someone. Opinions are honestly blunt, and I could easily see any of these men putting their thoughts into the words they said. I enjoyed how Morgan did not let the men override her views, as she stood up for her beliefs. The two brothers of Caleb are absolutely charming in their own ways, and I am so glad they get their own future books. A glimpse into the second story has me very intrigued.
While Morgan and Caleb initially just thought about sexual satisfaction when they give in to their feelings of desire, their caring actions cause them to realize there could be more between them than lust. But like many real life relationships, what they long for is not always attainable without some hard life lessons being learned first. Jennifer Probst creates characters that are full of life and have likable personalities. Caleb can be charming and is concerned about others, yet he sometimes speaks before thinking, thus causing him problems. Morgan also makes her viewpoint clearly known, and I found their conversations to be exceedingly refreshing. Several comments are very laugh inducing, and I remember three moments of uncontrollable mirth. EVERYWHERE AND EVERY WAY is a compelling start to The Billionaire Builders series, where characters are engaging and the premise is delightfully captivating.
