About Any Time, Any Place:HGTV’s Property Brothers meets The Marriage Bargain in this second volume in the Billionaire Builders series, an all-new heart-wrenching and sexy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
When she was a teen, Raven Bella Stratton’s father was killed in a horrible car crash. The bigger shock was the discovery of a woman with him—Diana Pierce—and their two fully packed suitcases with airline tickets to Paris. Devastated by her father’s betrayal, Raven went to live with her aunt, never truly overcoming the traumatic event. When she discovers that the mysterious woman had a family with a husband and three boys, Raven vows to leave the memory of her father behind.
Until Dalton Pierce visits one night and suddenly her past challenges her future...
Leaving his life in California behind to run Pierce Construction with his two older brothers, Dalton Pierce has enjoyed returning home and studying his passion of woodworking. But when he visits the local bar with his brothers one evening, he’s immediately drawn to the smart-mouthed, badass, sexy bartender who sets his body on fire. Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem as intrigued by him, and his multiple advances are met with rejection. When he offers to restore the bar back to its original glory, he begins to work with her on a daily basis, and falls harder. His plan of seduction slowly weaves a web around them both, until they are caught up in the spell. But Dalton doesn’t know the secret that can either destroy them both...or finally mend two broken hearts.
Woof, this book was NOT good for my anxiety, lol! I feel like my blood pressure went up, my eyes went bloodshot, and I bit my nails the whole way through.
I loved it.
Well, I didn’t love the secret. I’m not good at keeping secrets. I’m worse than Nick Miller on New Girl with secrets, and they make him sweat and babble A LOT.
Nick Miller is me. I am Nick Miller.
So I didn’t do well knowing Raven’s secret, but had to find out how/when it got out about her connection to Dalton. It kept me on edge the whole time and made me read all the way through, but hey, who needs to go to bed anyway?
I was so smitten with Dalton, who was like the living embodiment of puppy dog eyes throughout most of this book.
During some parts I actually imagined him floating with animated hearts coming out of his ears, like in some cute lovey dovey cartoon. It was just agh adorable! 😍
