Any Time, Any Place is the second book in the Billionaire Builders series. It's a story of hidden secrets, a determined heroine, and an equally determined hero.
Raven is happy owning her bustling restaurant and bar called My Place. She'll never get past her father's death, however. He died in a car crash running away with Diana Pierce, the heiress to Pierce Construction.
Dalton Pierce has never gotten past his mother's death. How could a woman so loving with her children abandon them all to run away? While he and his brothers are at a local bar, he spies Raven and admits he falls pretty hard with both her and her antique mahogany bar.
When Raven's asked to be in a magazine, she can't refuse the publicity. At the same time, she needs the bar refinished and Dalton is the right man for the job. She cannot fraternize with the enemy, so how's she supposed to fighting her attraction. As sparks fly, the truth about her past may end everything she's starting to feel makes her whole.
Jennifer Probst's novel caught my interest from the start. I really liked Dalton, and even Raven was an enjoyable character. She's a bit of a spitfire, yet she also has an emotional side that makes her seem genuine. My issue is that the secret about their connection dragged on and on. I couldn't figure out why not just tell him. It's not like she was behind the wheel.
Despite that little niggle, and it's really nothing that hasn't been used as a conflict in romance before, I loved this book. I loved the characters, setting, and wish I could be at the bar. I also would love to return and see more about the kitchen staff. The chef at My Place warmed my heart.
