Samantha Chase started off her new series “The Shaughnessy Brothers” with a bang as the first Shaughnessy brother Aidan finds his forever with Zoe in “Made For Us”. And “Love Walks In” right into Hugh Shaughnessy’s heart and he had no ammunition to fight his feelings for Aubrey Burke.

Hugh Shaughnessy lives by rules, schedules and itineraries that have no room for changes nor does he let time slip his control. He can’t handle change nor does he see the benefit of others not respecting time and schedules. And for this Shaughnessy, Aubrey Burke is an uncontrollable and unpredictable dilemma that makes him question his attitude. She lives on instinct, thrives on making personal connections and time and schedules are not on her list of living her life. She is a bane to his sanity and he is sexy trouble on a watch for Aubrey.

There’s plenty of humor and passion, charm and dazzle, but what stands out for me in “Love Walks In”, is Samantha’s prowess of setting Hugh apart from his brother Aidan. Each sibling molds to the loss of their mother in different ways. Guilt and responsibility makes them create lives that they now in live, with a hope to atone the guilt of being responsible for her death. Each character has been caricatured with so much detail and dynamics that reading their stories is pure pleasure.

Just as “Love Walks In” for Hugh and Aubrey, they walk right into my heart as one of the sweetest couples that would be on my favorite list.

This month, bestselling author Samantha Chase launches her new contemporary romance series the Shaughnessy Brothers. In the series starter, MADE FOR US, readers are introduced to the five amazing Shaughnessy brothers–each more successful than the last. From a building contractor, to a scientist, to a former racecar driver, and even a rock star, these brothers are as different as can be, but also extremely close. Losing their mother early in their lives solidified the brotherly bond and helping raise their baby sister also brought them together. But with their sister raised and careers in order it is time for the next phase in their lives. And while these brothers might not be looking for happily-ever-afters, romance is looking for them!

Height: 6’2

Hair Color:  Dark Brown    

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 34

What makes you the perfect date?

No one – including myself – has ever said that!  But if I had to say something, it would be that I like to take care of all the details so that my date doesn’t have to worry about a thing.

What do you look for in a woman?

Typically someone strong and independent but also enjoys being taken care of.

Describe yourself in 100 words or less: 

I’m a bit of a control freak – or so I’ve been told!  I’m hard working and know exactly what I want out of life.  I can be quiet and observant – a bit of a people watcher.  I don’t enjoy crowds very much.  I prefer if I’m out, to be out in a small group or with one person.

Name: Hugh Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Luxury Resort Owner/Designer                     

Height: 6’3

Hair Color: Dark Brown

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 32

What makes you the perfect date?

I am extremely attentive.  I believe in taking a woman out for a romantic dinner with dancing and candlelight and making her feel like she is the most important thing in the world.

What do you look for in a woman?

She’s intelligent and easy to talk to but who isn’t looking for forever.  I travel a lot and she would need to be understanding of that.

Describe yourself in 100 words or less: 

I’m a really regimented man.  I mean really.  I like things done a certain way and I’m a stickler for routines and schedules.  Some say I’m overly cautious – in every aspect of my life – but that doesn’t mean that I’m boring.  I have an appreciation for the finer things and I’m outgoing and enjoy being around people and making new friends.

Occupation:  Former Race Car Driver turned, Automotive Restorer                          

Height: 6’

Hair Color:  Dirty Blonde

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 30

Samantha Chase-Headshot-Apr2015

What makes you the perfect date? 

I’m the fun one in the family.  I like to go out with a woman to a bar or someplace with loud music or find something athletic to do.  I want to be where the party is.

What do you look for in a woman?

I’ll admit to being a little shallow here – I am all about looks.  Tall, blonde, curvy…and that’s about it.

Describe yourself in 100 words or less:

Like I said, I’m the fun one.  I am all about living life to the fullest.  I enjoy sports – all sports – and I hate to be idle.  Cars are my current passion and to me it’s go-big-or-go-home.  If I can’t succeed and excel at something, then it’s time to move on.  So far it’s worked for me.

Name: Owen Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Astrophysicist       

Height: 6’

Hair Color:  Dark Brown

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 28

What makes you the perfect date?

I don’t really think I am.  I don’t believe perfect is something anyone can attain.  Dating really hasn’t been on my radar but when I do take a woman out, we usually talk about science.  And she’s normally a scientist so I guess you can say I make sure we talk about mutual interests.

What do you look for in a woman?

I spend a lot of my time trying to not be noticed.  But if I notice a woman, it’s usually because we’re both working together or studying together.  I look for someone who understands me.

Describe yourself in 100 words or less: 

Quiet.  Shy.  Socially awkward.  At least that’s how most people tell me I am.  I don’t think about it much.  I’m devoted to my field of study and helping others learn about astrophysics and it pretty much consumes all of my time and energy.

Name: Riley Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Musician/Rock Star                             

Height: 6’

Hair Color:  Dark Brown

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 28

What makes you the perfect date?

When I’m out on a date with a woman, there is no one else in the world.  I put all of my attention on her and do my best, to make sure that our date includes everything she wants.

What do you look for in a woman?

I used to be all about the looks – mainly because women were always chasing after me.  I had superficial relationships, now I look for a woman who sees more than a rock star, a celebrity.  I want to find someone who just sees me.

Describe yourself in 100 words or less: 

Confident.  Talented.  And currently, mildly insecure.  I have always loved music, loved to sing and if I couldn’t do that, I don’t know what I’d do with myself.  Music is just a part of me.  I put my partying ways behind me – not that I had much of one.  I’m just as comfortable on stage in front of thousands of people, as I am at home watching TV.

Here’s another writer/author that I dig reading her sweet romances and wonderful characters. I’ve been following her for quite some time now, and she just grew leaps and bounds with her narration and writing prowess. I love her Montgomery Series as much as her individual novels and now she brings The Shaughnessy Brothers into the pool.

MadeForUs-ShaughnessyBrothers1-SamanthaChase-aug2015

“Made For Us” leads the way to another very promising series and I believe Aidan Shaughnessy will top the charts as my favorite. Losing his mother in his growing hears, eldest of six siblings and carrying the weight of the family on his young shoulders, he never realized that life has passed by him. Helping his father run the household is second nature that molds him into being a perfectionist, stubborn and his way is the highway. And he absolutely has no time or interest to rock his life of normalcy and make any changes.

And enters the fiery interior decorator Zoe Dalton, and Aidan’s normal life hurricanes out of control. He wants her, desires her, lusts her, but he doesn’t want her to rock the equation of his life. Zoe is an amazing character of patience, warmth and understanding, strong and independent, yet yearning for a family to belong to, she just steals your heart. She teaches Aidan to laugh, to romance, to cry and to love, and the entire story was just screen-played to a beautiful perfection of a read.

Samantha Chase just touched my heart with her portrayal of Aidan to perfection, and I can relate to his every fear and insecurity. It’s not easy to pen such a complex character, and she did with an amazing creative flair. I will treasure the first Shaughnessy brother forever and can’t wait to be a part of the rest of this dynamic family and their love stories.
