ANY TIME, ANY PLACE by Jennifer Probst
Billionaire Builders, #2
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.
Second book in Jennifer Probst's Billionaire Builders series is a little more serious the the first one. It deals with both Raven and Dalton dealing with the traumatic death of a loved one, one who they thought betrayed them. Raven's father was the man Dalton's mother was with when they died in a horrible car crash. Both thought the worst of the other Raven blamed Dalton's mother and hated the family for ruining her father name and reputation in the artistic community. All of the Pierce family placed the blame on the man who stole away the beloved Diana Pierce.
Wonderfully written as always, a nice blend of chic, humor, romance and a bit of angst. Raven and Dalton both have plenty of layers giving them more depth and dimensions and making them seem very realistic. It can be read as a stand-alone which is always nice when you come into an established series and it connects Jennifer Probst other series that recently ended, Searching For, It was a nice touch especially since Izzy pops in.
Dalton and Raven are great together with plenty of similar interest and just enough differences to make it interesting. Dalton can't figure out Raven and why she hates him so much but he can't stay away from her or her bar, a lovely antique piece that is just begging him to restore it. Dalton gets his wish when Raven's restaurant is getting a article in a magazine and Raven needs the restaurant and bar restored so it looks good in the pictures. Raven figures this is the best time to learn more about the woman who ruined her life. But what she learns is nothing like what she she thought and the closer she gets to Dalton the more she falls in love. But will the truth of their connected past bring them closer together or will it tear them apart.
Overall, a great read. I love just about every Jennifer Probst writes and I have to say I love this one more than the first book of the series.
