Review- Somehow, Some Way by Jennifer Probst


Bolivar Randy Heart (aka Brady) knows exactly what he wants next in life: the perfect wife. Raised in a strict traditional family household, he seeks a woman who is sweet, conservative, and eager to settle down. With his well-known protective and dominant streak, he needs a woman to offer him balance in a world where he relishes control.

Too bad the newly hired, gorgeous, rehab addict is blasting through all his preconceptions and wrecking his ideals…one nail at a time…

Charlotte Flowers knows who she is and refuses to apologize. Growing up poor made her appreciate the simple things in life, and her new job at Pierce Brothers Construction is perfect to help her carve out a career in renovating houses. When an opportunity to transform a dilapidated house in a dangerous neighborhood pops up, she goes in full throttle. Unfortunately, she’s forced to work with the firm’s sexy architect who’s driving her crazy with his archaic views on women. 

Too bad he’s beginning to tempt her to take a chance on more than just work…one stroke at a time…

Somehow, some way, they need to work together to renovate a house without killing each other…or surrendering to the white-hot chemistry knocking at the front door.

I have read the first two books in the Billionaire Builders series by Jennifer Probst and I enjoyed them. So I was quite excited to see that Brady was getting a novella too- he's not technically a brother but he might as well be one. So I jumped on the opportunity to be a part of the blog tour for Somehow, Some Way. I'll say it is completely not necessary to have read the previous books in this series to enjoy the novella but there are recurring characters and it's always nice to know their back story.

Okay, so confession time! I do not enjoy novellas very much. Like, I like them but I prefer full length novels to novellas. But I surprisingly did like Brady and Charlotte's story. Let's start with Brady. Brady is the architect who works for Pierce Brothers Construction. He has been with them since forever and is like a brother to them. But Brady is kind of set in his ways. He wants a traditional wife and a conservative family. I overall liked Brady but sometimes I found him annoying. His views on women were archaic and though I know he changes as the novella progresses I was completely satisfied with him.

Then we have Charlotte. Charlotte works in Pierce Brothers Construction and she grew up poor. She loves renovating old houses and basically hates all kinds of waste. She's a free spirit, not afraid to speak her mind and basically the complete opposite of Brady. The ten year age difference between them doesn't help matters any. But I liked Charlotte. She was true to herself and admitted when she fell in love with Brady.

Brady and Charlie may be opposites but they did attract. Their chemistry was good and Jennifer Probst is an expert romance writer. She manages to pull together various threads of the story while making the romance blossom. Though this is not my favourite read to date by Jennifer Probst it still managed to entertain me for a short amount of time. I liked Somehow, Some Way and I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the series!
