We are pleased as punch to share some exclusive scoop courtesy of Jennifer Probst herself: She's hard at work on a new series, The Billionaire Builders, with Book 1, Everywhere and Every Way, coming in 2016! In addition to giving us a little insider information on the series, Jennifer has taken the time to answer some of our burning questions about the project. So get your hard hats ready—it's time to meet the Billionaire Builders!
I've always been a bit obsessed with HGTV.
Maybe it's the step-by-step transformation of a building to a special place a person can call home. Maybe it's the excitement of watching a project unfold and being part of the completion. Maybe it's the Cinderella trope to watch a beat down, older home become beautiful again. To become loved.
Maybe it's just the hot guys with power tools.
When I decided to start my new series, I imagined three brothers who owned a family business that constructed customized houses. Each brother has a certain skill, and brought together, they are able to deliver someone's dream house. But these brothers have a dark history—a past that tore them apart and kept them apart for full five years. When their father's death finally brings them together, they are told the only way Pierce Brothers Construction can remain is if they run it together as a family again, at a profit. What happens is a journey for all three of them that will test the limits of their family, the future, and the most important element—love. It's a story rich with layers and issues, all interwoven with my main theme: a place to call home.
Oh, and there's really hot guys with power tools in the series too.
It's called The Billionaire Builders series and my first book is titled, Everywhere and Every Way. It contains my usual trademark humor, hot sex, alpha men, and dogs. Of course, there will be dogs.
I hope you join me on this new journey where The Property Brothers meets the Marriage Bargain, and there's always a happily ever after.
Team H&H: Did any HGTV stars in particular influence the Pierce Brothers?
Jennifer Probst: Umm, that would be a big, resounding YES! I'm kind of obsessed with The Property Brothers. Besides being hot, they're creative, handy, and fascinating to watch. So I thought bigger and better and brainstormed THREE hot brothers with different talents who all worked together. More is better, right?!
