Welcome to [email protected] Builds where the motorcycles are as sexy as the brothers building them.
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.
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.
"Build (Burns Brothers, #1)" Reviews
Excellent start to what should be a fun new series. Both the main and secondary characters are fun and interesting and I can't wait for more of these over the top brothers. Loved the banter between the characters and the chemistry between Austin and Rachel was sizzling. Both of the characters had moments where you wanted to smack them but overall I wanted to see them find their way. I would definitely recommend this very enjoyable book.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

I am having no luck lately with realliy liking the characters in the books I am reading and Austin is yet another of those characters. Ugh. Talk about a guy who is all over the place and really really doesn't know how to treat a woman at all. The first half of this book is like this and then when you finally do like him a little Rachel goes all psycho. And quiet frankly events that happened had me not even rooting for these two snowed in people. I wanted them to not be a couple. l just was not a fan of this book. It was slow for me and I just didn't like these character. It frankly grated on my nerves and I just wasn't a fan of this book. It had it moments but those moments did not make up for what I didn't like.
Rachel doesn't understand her man at times, “what?” Rachel stood up and blew her bangs out of her eyes. “Why are you talking about your junk? Don’t you care that you have glass sticking out of your hand?” Austin wants to make sure his girl is focused, “okay, okay . Do you need me to put a shirt on, so you don’t get all distracted again?” I loved this book, I fell in love with Austin.
"I'd always remember him and our weekend together. But Austin was a snowy fantasy. He had no place here in my real life. No matter how much I wished he did."
So many feels!! These characters were completely adorable, the banter enjoyable, and I ate this story up quickly and with voracity. Austin, a hot alpha, with flaws and damage meets the insecure, yet strong Rachel by chance and the dominoes just fall and I was swept up in their tale. It will make you yell at your kindle, the pace keeps you engulfed, the backstory and happenings make you want to binge the series, and I had such a blast reading this one. There were a few unanswered questions that had such a huge build up in this story that kind of went unanswered, but I'm only hoping that it will come back in future books about the brothers that I'm dying to get my hands on. I loved the vulnerability, the stubborness, and transformation of both characters! I thank the Author for providing a copy to read!
"After last night, there was no way I was done with her. I needed more time. I needed more Rachel."

Yet another mixed bag of a book. For the most part, I enjoyed it. I like this author's writing style, and her stories always have a good flow to them. I loved the whole close-knit family feels Austin had with his brothers, cousin, and Aunt. I liked Rachel's mother, and Wyatt was cute. There wasn't any OW or OM drama. The sex scenes were hot and plentiful. All good things...
My main issue with this one, well two actually, were the main characters themselves. For half the book Austin just wasn't likable AT ALL. He acted like a bi-polar douche, and he treated Rachel like crap. However, he does become much more likable in the second half of the book. Unfortunately, that is around the time Rachel turns into this ridiculous over the top b!tch. I did like her up until the "event." I mean...girlfriend took ONE incident (that had a reasonable explanation if she had bothered to ask) and then blew it SOOO out of proportion, I kind of wanted Austin to say...sayonara bitch and move on to someone without a baseball bat shoved up their a$$. (lol) Alas, we can't always get what we want!
So yea, another mixed bag to add to my ever-growing collection of mixed bags this week.
Austin seems to be carrying the world on his shoulders. Or at least the protection of his brothers. He’s risen to the challenge but it wasn’t necessarily by choice. His past is dark and frightening and shadows his present. Rachel likewise carries a heavy burden as she struggles to provide for her son and her disabled mother. There is no time or money for even the simple things in life much less a relationship. Which opens her up to the possibility of spending one wild night with the man of her dreams.
This is one of those feel good romances that is laced with just enough angst to keep things interesting and then springing a large conflict that makes the characters re-evaluate their priorities. Both Rachel and Austin are damaged in some way and both have their faults that tend to lead their decision making. But when things are flowing smoothly for them they are perfect together. With a medium range of heat, a tiny tot on the peripheral of the story, and a group of brothers that define dysfunctional it kept my interest until the end.
This story actually surprised me by not going in the direction I thought it would. It is definitely not your cookie cutter romance. Although a few interactions between the characters felt a bit stilted and the chemistry a tiny bit lacking, the ending rang with sincerity along with a sweet little epilogue that I wish had been longer and a little further out. Hopefully we get more of them as this series continues. After all, there are three more brothers and they each promise an interesting read.
