Summary – 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.

Jennifer Probst is an author I follow. I wanted to get my hands on her book asap!
Unfortunately that didn’t happen as quick. But I’m glad I eventually got the chance to pick up Everywhere and Every Way.
This book is your well written contemporary fiction romance.
Sometimes ‘contemporary romance’ means that there will be some plot points that just tick me off. I just hope that the book is good enough to keep me interested and the hiccups don’t deter me from the rest of the story. I actually go into these type of contemporary romance books knowing that the characters have to do a few dumb things in order to get into the situations they do.
For example, Everywhere and Every Way has to get Morgan to design a home for the Pierce brothers. Her introduction to the plot wasn’t ideal for me. She almost blackmailed the brothers to work for her.
That act knocked her down a few pegs for me… but that is contemporary romance for you. And the plot was good to keep going! 🙂
Once Morgan and Caleb start their little romance (that’s not a spoiler – it’s inevitable), the book gets even more interesting to me. The relationship was pretty hot.
Character-wise I enjoyed Caleb’s point of view. Her character was the one I enjoyed the most I think. I wasn’t totally into the brother’s family feud so I didn’t spend too much time dissecting the conversation between them (it was three men talking, not a whole lot of communication going on). I think it was because of that I didn’t connect with the other brothers as much as secondary characters.
Morgan’s character was.. meh. I did like her..but I liked other contemporary romance characters better. I enjoyed the time Morgan carved out for her new friendship with the Pierce brother’s secretary/accountant.
Overall though, I thought the book was pretty good!
Wow, I think the review came out a lot harsher than I intended. I did enjoy reading the book! The plot was good and I’d probably pick up a spin-off or sequel.
I think I just wanted to say more in this review than ‘it was your typical contemporary romance.’ Hmm…
