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 fatherÔÇÖs luxury contracting business at a young age, dreaming of one day sitting in the bossÔÇÖs chair. But his fatherÔÇÖs 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 TÔÇöor sheÔÇÖll use her powerful connections to poison the Pierce brothersÔÇÖ reputation. Not one to ignore a challenge, Caleb vows to get the job doneÔÇöif only he can stop getting distracted by his new clientÔÇÖs perfectÔÇªamenities.
But thereÔÇÖs more to icy Morgan than meets the eye. And CalebÔÇÖs not the only one who knows how to use a stud-finder. In fact, Morgan is pretty sure sheÔÇÖs found hersÔÇöand 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?
This new series by Jennifer Probst feels like a bit of a departure from her normal writing style. ┬áThe premise of the story is quite interesting, but the characters took me a while to bond with (and truthfully, they never became my book friends). ┬áThe writing is still well done, but I think my main hurdle in trying to get through this book is the multiple story lines – getting to know Morgan, Caleb’s personal issues, Caleb’s brothers, what Morgan wants, etc. ┬áI think I felt pulled in too many directions. ┬áA ball-busting & highly efficient designer is on the hunt to produce the perfect house for her clients. ┬áShe hides behind her work, and never really lets anyone get behind the wall. ┬áAdd in
Morgan is a ball-busting & highly efficient designer is on the hunt to produce the perfect house for her clients. ┬áShe hides behind her work, and never really lets anyone get behind the wall. ┬áShe was definitely prickly at times, but I loved her independence and ability to wield a hammer when needed.
Caleb. ┬áThis boy was a bit of a mess. ┬áLiving under his father’s thumb, fighting with his brothers, and trying to figure out what exactly he wants out of life. ┬áHe’s a bit bull-headed at times, but Morgan certainly helps to temper some of his rough edges.
While this was not my favorite book by Jennifer, she certainly creates some interesting dynamics in the brothers. ┬áTheir relationships are what I found to be the most intriguing aspect of the story. ┬áIt will be truly interesting to see how the series continues and how the brothers will evolve (or devolve) in their relationships.
