Any Time, Any Place (The Billionaire Builders)

What I love about Jennifer Probst books are her characters. They’re so real they’re almost palpable. Indeed, I feel like they could be part of my own circle of friends. It’s the same with Raven and Dalton in Probst’s second Billionaire Builders Series installment, Any Time, Any Place. Yes, Dalton is a bazillionaire and co-owner of Pierce Brothers construction. But he bleeds red just like the rest of us, and he’s not a caricature beyond reach. This makes him all the more yummy. Partner him with Raven Hawthorne who is a master mixologist and owner of My Place, and the fireworks crackle, explode, and then settle with a satisfying, ahhhh.
The moment Dalton Pierce sees Raven, he knows he needs her. Needs her near him, under him, on top of him. Hell, any way possible that involves skin on skin contact. Unlike most women, Raven is unaffected by Dalton’s charm and good looks. Plus, she’s not a fan of the Pierce Brothers, given what happened in their past. In fact, in her book, the Pierce Brothers are public enemy number one.
Thus, when Dalton hits on Raven, she’s not afraid to dish it out to this outwardly arrogant man.
