Build by Gillian Archer


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.

Mary☆☆☆☆
Austin Burns is one of the brothers who build motorcycles and they own Bad@ss Builds. With a reality show behind them and possibly more on the horizon, there is always someone looking to get one of their bikes. When Austin gets some bad news, he needs time to process it and drink until he can't think. He goes to a friend's Tahoe cabin for the night.

Rachel Tannenbaum is a single mom working two jobs and living with her mother, who is in a wheelchair. They live in a rundown apartment and are barely getting by. When Rachel is sent to clean a cabin in Tahoe, she just wants to get done and head home before the snowstorm moves in. When she walks into the beautiful cabin, she finds a very drunk and shirtless Austin Burns.

When the snowstorm hits, both Rachel and Austin are stuck in the cabin for two days. What are they to do with each other? Maybe they should test the electrical current running between them because it is just about to melt the snow.

This story is filled with pain, heartache, and love. The pain and heartache are more from Austin and his brother's past and it will break your heart to read it. The Prologue at the end is for the next book with Ryan and it is going to be so good. This author has a way of telling a story with a broken hero and the woman who helps him heal. So check her out if you haven't read her yet.

Rachel is just trying to get from day to day. She works hard so that she can provide for her family. But when a snowstorm derails her plans, she’ll have to make friends with an unlikely person.

Austin loves his brothers, but sometimes they make him want to pull his hair out. When he finds out someone from his past is about to come around again, he takes off for the mountains. It is kind of his MO – when something is bothering him, he takes off for a few days.

With Austin and Rachel having to spend some time together, they’ll have to navigate assumptions, grumpiness, and an attraction that just won’t let them go.

This is a short story that has a lot going on. Austin is somewhat temperamental and irritating, but he has a good heart. Rachel is strong, tenacious, and has so much love to give. I liked seeing these two figure out what was worth fighting for.



Gillian has a bachelor’s degree in mining engineering but prefers to spend her time on happily ever after. She writes the kind of stories she loves to read—the hotter the better!

When Gillian’s not pounding away on the keyboard, she can be found surfing the couch indulging in her latest reality tv fixation, baking something ridiculously tasty (and horrible for her waist line) or snuggling with her husband.

Home is currently in the wilds of Nevada with her amazing husband, ridiculously cute kiddo, and goofy dog.
