Welcome to Bad@ss Builds where the motorcycles are as sexy as the brothers building them.

Austin Burns:

I thought she wasn’t real the first time I saw her. To be fair I was a hungover mess when I woke up and looked into her gorgeous eyes. After getting the second worst news of my life — that my father would be paroled soon — I’d escaped to my buddy’s posh cabin near Lake Tahoe. Now the maid with the gorgeous eyes is snowed in with me, and I wonder if she might be a better distraction than the mountain of booze I’d planned on drinking. She’s curvy in all the right places, and the snow is falling faster.

Rachel Tannenbaum:

As a single mom, I don’t have time for men, especially irresponsible tattooed bad boys like my ex. But Austin is hot. And sexy. And stuck here in the cabin with me. I can’t say no to a fling with this bad boy, especially since Austin is so gorgeous and awkwardly sweet.

One night becomes two, and I don’t know if I can risk my heart — and my little boy’s — if Austin wants it to become more when we get through the snow and back to reality.

“I had a toddler and a mountain of bills to take care of. I didn’t have time for bad boys with their hard bodies, sexy tattoos, and sultry looks.”

This was my first time to read a Gillian Archer book and I really enjoyed it. I was especially intrigued to learn she has an MC romance series and I’ll most definitely be checking out her backlist. I confess it was the cover that caught my attention at first, and then who could read the synopsis and resist “Welcome to Bad@ss Builds where the motorcycles are as sexy as the brothers building them.”? Not me, that’s for sure!

Austin is the oldest badass brother. When his life was blown apart by the actions of his father he had to step up and help take care of his brothers. He’s got anger issues and attitude to spare and he doesn’t deny being an asshole. I doubt he tries to hard to curb it though since that’s exactly what seems to attract his fans. His dysfunctional family is very popular and good for business, it seems their recent shenanigans have gained them some attention and increased their sales.

When Rachel shows up at the Lake Tahoe cabin to clean she finds a gorgeous guy gazing at her with a dazed look on his face. He’s obviously drunk and has no clue why she’s there. “I was here to clean his freaking ski cabin. I was the help. I couldn’t let myself get lost in any fantasies of turning bad boys good or at the very least tracing the web of tattoos covering his chest and arms. Bad, Rachel.” Well, I guess that makes me a bad Rosa, cuz I was having those same fantasies…sigh. I’m surprised there was a need for a snowplow to rescue them when the heat between them could have melted the snow. 🔥

After getting the backstory and learning what had Austin so upset he ran off to drown himself in booze to forget about it I was totally invested. This being only the first book in the series I know there will be lots more information forthcoming regarding that issue and I’m very curious to see how that pans out. I’m also interested in seeing if some strong women have better luck taming those three younger brothers. They are all strong-minded and hardheaded and even though I was only present virtually I still felt the need to hide in a corner when they were fighting.

And then there’s Rachel’s little boy. Imagine having little-man and big-man in the same room. Yup, it will have your ovaries exploding. I’m looking forward to more Burns Brothers and Bad@ss Builds. The line forms here…
