All or Nothing at All, Jennifer Probst

All or Nothing at All, Jennifer Probst

All or Nothing at All (The Billionaire Builders) by [Probst, Jennifer]

Genre:  Romance,

I’ve enjoyed a few of Jennifer’s stories now but this one didn’t really work for me.
I understood the background issues, the need Tristan felt to get away, as well as the reasons why Sydney wouldn’t leave with him.
He acted like a spoiled child growing up, a thwarted teen when he left for the city, and now he’s back eight years later he’s still acting like a kid, holding old grudges, never once looking at his own decisions or questioning them.

The romance side is pretty generic, secrets revealed, heartbreak just when the characters had finally got together…but as usual for a book by Jennifer its well written, and plays out nicely.

What I had major issues with was the way Sydney managed to get away with no one, not one person, questioning who’s Becca’s father.
Its a small town, and as we see in the book, like most its one where everyone knows, or think they know or suspect, every little thing that happens, so how she managed to keep this a secret isn’t believable.
Then Tristan returns home and never once suspects? Nor do his family, who Sydney works for, who are very close to her? Even when they’re organising Becca’s 7th birthday party is still way over Tristan’s head…..
That was a huge issue for me to get past.
When finally he finds out his reaction at first is understandable, but they way he acts after didn’t make me like him.

He’d been a pretty cold jerk to Sydney for the past year and he reverted to, went past even, that same icy behaviour. I just wanted to say “grow up man! Look at who you were and think honestly how you would have reacted, if things could have worked out!!”
Sorry, a well written read that many will love, just not me.

Stars: Two, a good read for some, but which didn’t work for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
