Everywhere and Every Way by Jennifer Probst

Release: May 31th, 2016
Romance Subgenre: Contemporary Romance
Series: The Billionaire Builders #1

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?

Review and Curated Soundtrack

I've been waiting for this book for years! Ever since finishing Nora Roberts’ Inn Boonsboro trilogy I've been waiting for and wanting more sexy contractors and capable heroines. If you love Roberts’ Montgomery brothers or HGTV’s Property Brothers go buy this book right now!

The first book in Jennifer Probst’s new Billionaire Builders series, Everywhere and Every Way, features Caleb and Morgan. We meet Caleb (Cal) right as he’s trying to save his career as a builder and his family’s business, all while rebuilding his relationships with his brothers. Morgan enters the scene a few chapters into the book as she is looking to Cal and his brothers to build her clients the house of their dreams. Morgan and Cal instantly feel sexual awareness between the two of them, but they resist due to their working relationship. Of course, the resistance is eventually futile. There was so much to love about this book!

The Good

  • Cal is the type of hero I think women actually look for in real life. He is controlling in some ways and very hard-headed, but he always has his family’s best interests at heart; he’s the perfect balance of soft and strong. So often I read heros that are appealing in book form, but IRL I’d have no interest in pursuing. Cal was different, he’s the kind of hero that so was “normal” that I could see myself knowing him (and having a crush on him) IRL.
  • Oh how I adore the the utterly competent heroine! From the minute Morgan stepped on the page I knew I’d like her. She’s sassy, caring and so damn good at her job. I think the best thing about Morgan is that we initially see her as this perfect heroine, pink hammer and work boots included. However, throughout the course of the book we begin to see the true Morgan, the Morgan that gets hidden away. I loved how confident Morgan was in herself, her “flaws” and her career. I hope that I can project that same sense of confidence to the world!
  • I appreciate that Jennifer Probst subtly acknowledged Nora Roberts’ Inn Boonsboro trilogy in the book. It made my heart so darn happy.
The Bad
  • My only wish for the book was that the heroine and hero got together sooner. The pacing of the book seemed slightly off since it took so long for the hero and heroine to actually become an item, but beyond that, this book was really entertaining in all ways.
The Unique
  • The “world-building” in this book was so beautiful. From the small-town vibe, to the amazing homes, to the awe-inspiring landscape, I wanted to crawl into this book, become friends with the characters and never leave. Probst paints these pictures of the scenery and characters that could be real. No ifs, ands or buts...this book was so true-to-life that it left me speechless in some ways. The emotions and pain of the characters jumped right off the page at me, and I felt for them like I don’t feel for many characters. The tears were aflowin’ while reading this book (particularly in the first and last few chapters)!
The Playlist
  • In one scene of the book Morgan takes over the work-site boom box to get some relief from the usual work-site tunes. Probst tells us that Morgan’s CD begins with Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. Below is a curated soundtrack of what I imagine might be the rest of the track’s on Morgan’s work-site CD. Enjoy!

I rate this book:

What did you think of Everywhere and Every Way?
Do any songs remind you of Cal, Morgan and their HEA?
