I always enjoy Jennifer Probst’s books. She somehow manages a great balance of real and story book perfect.
Somehow, Some Way, a novella part of the Billionaire Builders series, that’s showing beautifully how expectations can blow right out the window when the right person comes along.
Brady and Charlie hating each other (supposedly) at the beginning makes them ending up working side by side on flipping Charlie’s house all the more hilarious as their banter leads them to like each other more and more with every passing day.
I adore Charlie. I think she’s a wonderful heroine. She knows what she wants, she’s very true to herself and she’s not afraid to speak her mind, even at a cost to her own happiness. Charlie is a great surprise!
On the other hand, I think Brady is one of the male characters I didn’t fall for. I mean, he’s a decent guy, never led her on, and is mostly true to himself. If only he knew what’s true and what isn’t.
I think this novella is a must read for anyone enjoying Probst’s BB series. It’s light, thoughtful, entertaining, funny, swoony and very very sexy. It’s a great ride towards finding love, and it’s a fun lesson in letting go of misconceptions.
