STORY: 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.
REVIEW: This the second story of the Billionaire Builders series (and no, I didn’t read the first story, which I should have!) which revolves around the three brothers who own Pierce Brothers Construction in Harrington, Connecticut. This is the story of Dalton, the youngest brother.
I gotta say, this story can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend you read the read the first book because in it you’ll meet the heroine, Raven Hawthorne and the reasons behind her animosity toward the Pierce brothers.
Dalton was such a great character and I liked him from page one. He is smart, tenacious and sexy to boot! He also carries a lot of unresolved feelings about his past and together, these two made up for some great reading.
I think you’ll enjoy this fast paced, heartwarming romance filled with lots of humor and characters that will touch you in all the right places.
