Reveal Me (Steele Brothers) by Jennifer Probst
Reveal Me (the STEELE BROTHERS series Book 5) - Jennifer Probst

 

If there is such a thing as being tastefully naughty, Ms. Probst sets about pushing the boundaries on that.  Reveal Me shows a scandalous side to an author that is known for hinting at sex appeal while showcasing stories of tenderness, courage and second chances.  Those qualities are prevalent in the saucy relationship that develops between Leo and Scarlett, just with a tempestuous edge at the core of their romance. The fantasy entrances as the romance devours. A sensual feast of delectability.

Any Time, Any Place (The Billionaire Builders)
Any Time, Any Place (The Billionaire Builders) - Jennifer Probst I received an ARC from NetGalley for this unbiased review.

I don't think Jennifer Probst will ever disappoint me. *knock wood* When I read Everywhere and Every Way, I knew I'd be waiting slightly impatiently for book two in the series. When it appeared in NetGalley, I clicked so fast I don't think I even registered I'd done it.

Thank goodness I got a copy because this book was just as fantastic as the first. We'd already seen glimpses into the Pierce brothers' background, now we get to see the aftermath from the other side.

Raven is the daughter of the man who ran away with Diane Pierce, only to end with their deaths in a car accident before they could actually make it to their destination - Paris.

She grew up under the spectre of hatred from the Pierce family. Taunts, ruination of her father's name, and becoming the town pariah. Raven vowed to get her vengeance on the Pierce family, living her life roaming from place to place, learning everything she could. She trained, becoming an amazing martial artist - she knew whatever was in store for her back in her home town... she'd be ready.

Unfortunately, she found she wasn't ready for Dalton Pierce. From the first day he walked into her bar, he had her head spinning. And he wouldn't leave her alone. They were a perfect match when they sparred verbally, he followed her to her gym where he kept up with her physically, and he desperately wanted to rehab "My Place," which needed to be done for a spread in Good Food and Fine Spirits magazine.

When it turns out Dalton is the only man for the job, sparks fly in so many ways Raven can't deny her attraction any longer. The only question is whether she can avoid the need for vengeance or the fallout when Dalton finds out.

------
First of all, I hate books with unnecessary secrets, but I thought the secret(s) in this book were plausible and definitely in-character for Dalton and Raven.

I could connect to both of the mains here, and all the Pierce brothers + Brady are simply dreamy. The girls are feisty and loveable, and I'd want to be BFFs with all of them.

I finished the book with a smile on my face, and that means a lot to me. If a book can make me feel anything after I've closed it, it's done something right.

All or Nothing at All
All or Nothing at All - Jennifer Probst
I have really enjoyed getting to know the Pierce Brothers. Smart, creative, complicated are the skills they know best, but underneath all drama, hurt and secrets lies a really strong family. Cal, Dalton and Tristan love each other, they just express it differently. Isn't that what family is all about? Making what should be the most simple of tasks, anything but. Sydney and Tristan should be experts at that. Their love was a long time coming but ended all too soon. Or did It? Can they rebuild the trust they lost and the love they let slip way? Through the wounded pride and long withheld secrets, for me the most priceless of moments were the interactions between Becca and Tristan. Watching them go from wary strangers to building a tentative connection was such a sweet sight to behold. I fell in love.

Review: Somehow, Some Way by Jennifer Probst
Somehow, Some Way: A Billionaire Builders Novella - Jennifer Probst

Architect Brady Heart has been a series background character as a partner of Pierce Brothers Construction. In and out of different scenes, I’ve always seen Brady as a nice guy, good friend type of character; however, reading Somehow, Some Way, I got a whole new sense of who Brady is. He is a control freak and has some pretty “traditional” views of what he seeks in a marriage. And the man is ready to find that perfect wife to marry and raise his children, like yesterday. On the other hand, I feel we got a good look at Charlie Flower’s free-spirit in Any Time, Any Place, where she played a pivotal role for Dalton. Charlie is determined to make it on her own, and reluctant to accept help. So when her new family at Pierce Brothers insists that Brady help Charlie on a renovation in a dangerous part of town, she is anything but cooperative or appreciative.  

 

I honestly did not see how Brady and Charlie were going to work at first. Frankly, Brady was an arrogant ass. He looked down on Charlie, even though he respected her work ethic and felt an insane attraction to her. His views on dating an woman were very 1950s, yet he never pushed his views on marriage, only asking she respect what works for him. However, I completely sided with Charlie as he continually seemed so condescending. I didn’t like Brady much at all. Yet, as the book moved forward, and he grew closer to Charlie, I saw him open up and change.

 

I loved the point when Brady realized he could no longer ignore his obsessive attraction to Charlie. The whole story turned on edge as the pair began to work together and argue less. They were playful, rather than mean-spirited, and they enjoyed being with each other. That was when the real emotions began to develop and grow. Brady’s self-examination of his long-held views and Charlie’s ability to finally let someone in and help her gave the story depth. Their unlikely romance blossomed.

 

Somehow, Some Way is an enjoyable, fun novella set in the Billionaire Builders series. It is a treat for fans of the series; however the book can be read and enjoyed as a standalone by those new to the series.

 

My Rating: B, Liked It

Somehow, Some Way: A Billionaire Builders Novella - Jennifer Probst

I guess there's feminism running through my veins. It makes my heart glad to watch a woman go toe to toe with the big boys. Charlie does not back down from a challenge. She speaks her mind, follows her heart and has the confidence that most people wish they had. Underneath all the bravado lies a scared little girl, craving acceptance in a male dominated field. Brady is both nemesis and anchor. He pushes her, steadies her and shows her it's okay to be vulnerable. Brady and Charlie are a sassy mix of heart, heat and frenemy that makes for some sticky situations but dishes out some fun times as well.
