Everywhere and Every Way was a quick and easy read for me. I really enjoyed the plot of this story. I thought it was well written and I found the property brother style idea to be fun and refreshing. I loved the family conflict and couldn’t wait to see how the story would work out; if the brothers could find a common ground without trying to kill one another. I thought Caleb and Morgan were great together. I really liked the push and pull that they had. I thought Morgan really challenged Caleb and that made all the will they/won’t they, almost moments worth it.
My only issue was the pacing. I did feel that it wasn’t quiet cohesive. It started off really well and then there would be moments where the pacing would slow down and drag a bit, and then pick right back up. Now, this might not be an issue for everyone, but it is something that stood out for me.
Overall, I think this series is off to a really good start. The story-line and characters are fun and intriguing and keep you wanting more. This story had just the right mix of romance and drama and I can’t wait to see where this series will go next.
