All or Nothing At All is the final book in Jennifer Probst's Billionaire Builders series. I have read all the books in the series and I enjoyed them. I didn't LOVE any of them but they were good enough reads. The stories are well written and the romance is nice. All or Nothing At All is the story of Tristan and Sydney and the build up of their story was started right from the first book. So while I did enjoy the book it didn't meet all my expectations.
Let's start with Sydney. Sydney has been working for Pierce Brothers Construction right from the beginning. She was an integral part of the family and always felt at home with the Pierce clan. Sydney has also been in love with Tristan since she was a kid. But she's keeping a secret that could tear them apart. I liked Sydney. She was sweet and sassy and she just wanted Tristan's love and affection.
Tristan in the middle Pierce brother. He has always been the peace keeper, the one who keeps his calm. But sometimes he can be too cold and try as he may he can't get Sydney out of his head. Tristan was a good guy but he definitely had his flaws. He viewed Sydney too harshly for her mistakes and he took his time forgiving her.
Sydney and Tristan have a past. They were together when they were young. But when Tristan's mother died the Pierce family fell apart and all Tristan wanted to do was get away from the small town. Even if it meant leaving Sydney behind. The chemistry between Sydney and Tristan was really good. They made for a very compatible pairing and they were genuinely into each other. The timing was wrong before though and they have a lot of obstacles in their path.
I obviously didn't like the secret Sydney kept but then I also didn't like Tristan's behaviour in some parts. I also did not like how the Pierce family alienated Sydney after the secret was out as if the years and years of trust meant nothing. I found Sydney's daughter Becca to be adorable. Jennifer Probst likes romance really well. Though some of the tropes are cliche they seem to work well and it all works out in the end. So while All or Nothing At All was not one of my all time favourites it was still a good enough read.
