Review: All or Nothing at All (Billionaire Builders #3) by Jennifer Probst
Tristan Pierce left the family business to carve out a life of his own, but never forgot his passionate affair with the much younger, inexperienced Sydney Green, or the hurtful break-up that tore him apart. When he’s forced to return home and face his past, will he be able to carve out a future, or will lies ruin his second chance at love?
Sydney Green loved Tristan her entire life, but when he left, he took not only her heart, but her trust with him. Now that they’re together again, it’s time they both face the biggest secret of all….
All of Nothing at All has a storyline that I normally hate, but this author managed to write it in a way that while I still didn't love that piece, I didn't hate it either. Plus the overall story was really fun to read. *slight spoilers ahead*
Sydney has always loved Tristan, but when she finally grew up and he finally saw her as more than just a kid who follows him around all the time she thought she finally had everything she wanted. Only...some things happen to upset the balance and Tristan doesn't deal with it well. He needs to leave. He needs to get out and be his own man. And he leaves Sydney brokenhearted with a secret - she is having his baby. Normally I hate secret babies, hate when the women don't tell the men that they are pregnant, but this one was written in a way that I at least understood. She still should have told him much sooner, but she is scared of what will happen when he finds out.
Tristan got out while he could, but he has been back in his hometown for 2 years now. Two years of trying to avoid Sydney, the one who broke his heart. He can't do that again. He won't. He is too upset. Only they start getting thrown together suddenly and he remembers how much he cared about her. They have both grown up since they were last together so maybe they can really make this work.
Oh these two. They obviously both care for the other, but with Sydney's secret things are a little rocky. Tristan is afraid of being hurt and Sydney just wants to be loved as she loves him. They have a lot of obstacles in their way, some of them their own heads getting in the way, but I actually loved how this all played out. How they work through things and what happens with that. Tristan can be really cold and not the nicest, but oh he loves his daughter. When he lets you in, really lets you in, he can be so kind and caring. I enjoyed watching these two try and work things out.
