Book #1 in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Chase’s dazzling new series:
Meet The Shaughnessy Brothers
Can’t make time for love?
The Shaughnessy brothers have spent the years since their mother’s untimely death taking care of each other and trying to make their father proud. Oldest son Aidan is hard-working, handsome, successful—and still single. Sure, he’d like to have his own family someday, but who has the time?
She’ll show him how to find it
Zoe Dalton, a stunning designer Aidan meets on one of his construction jobs, has the beauty and heart to make Aidan realize how much he could be missing. But it’s not easy to break down walls you’ve spent years building up. Now there’s a major storm bearing down on the North Carolina coast, and it could be catalyst enough to force Aidan and Zoe into some major decisions of the heart.

Chase (the Montgomery Brothers series) grabs readers by the heartstrings and reels them right into the antics of the lively Shaughnessy family: a father, five sons, one daughter, and their lingering memories of a mother who was killed in a car accident. Aiden, the eldest child, has always been bold, hardworking, and extremely protective of his family. He keeps all nonrelatives at bay until he meets Zoe Dalton, a fiery decorator who's just as brazen as he is and has suffered just as much loss. When a hurricane crashes into their North Carolina coastal town and leaves them stranded together in a small apartment, Zoe and Aiden end up sharing more than flashlights and food. But after the storm clears and they are forced to rejoin the rest of the world, Aiden can't deal with the changes to his orderly life and pushes Zoe away, even though she's the only woman who's ever been able to impress him both in and out of the bedroom. Chase excels at giving even the most minor character a unique voice, and she makes Zoe and Aiden work hard for their happy ending. Readers weary of shoehorned-in suspense plots will find this novel gratifying and realistic; it's an uncluttered, perfectly paced look at two individuals trying to move forward after tragedy.
Great New Series
Made for Us is the first book in Samantha Chase’s Shaughnessy Brothers series and features oldest brother Aidan. Aidan is too busy for love and underneath it all afraid of losing someone close to him again. Zoe knows all about loss and is looking for a new start. The two are thrown together first in a work setting then by Mother Nature. The chemistry between Aidan and Zoe is electric and instant but both are afraid of the “what ifs.” Using humor, deep emotion, and sizzling chemistry Chase weaves a beautiful story of loss, change, and love.
I love catching a series at the first book and Made for Us is book one in what promises to be a wonderful series. The Shaughnessy family has a little bit of everything - including heartbreat - and Samantha Chase knows how to tell a story that takes you on an emotional roller coaster. The scenes in Made for Us between Aidan and Zoe have you filled with anger one moment and then sighing the next. Wonderful read!
Made For Us
A great start to a new series by Samantha Chase, left me wanting more of the Shaughnessy family. Aiden, has been the leader of the pack since the untimely death of his mother. He has had no time to date, while helping his dad raise his younger siblings. Until, Zoe, interior designer has arrived after leaving Arizona after her mother died. Her one rule is never to date a client, until Aiden, construction owner has come along. The banter between these two will leave you smiling for a long time. The chemistry between these two are hot, but can they both let their walls down to enjoy life.
A perfect beach read, that will take you away to the North Carolina coast, with storms brewing in the romance, family drama and weather department. I highly recommend this book for your summer reading. Can't wait for the next book to come out. I was provided a copy of this book from Net Galley for an honest review.
