Publisher's Summary

Bree Simpson has her dream job at the family company. However, recent events have turned that dream into a nightmare. Bree has learned to tolerate a lot as one of the few women in an executive position in the construction industry. But when the normal bullying tactics turn aggressive and threaten her project in Atlanta, Bree decides to go on the offensive.

Convinced an architect is out to destroy her project, Bree decides it's time to give Logan Ward a piece of her mind. Despite being thousands of miles away in London, successful architect Logan Ward finds himself on the receiving end of "B. Simpson's" angry messages from across the pond. Deciding to handle B. Simpson's demands himself, Logan heads to Atlanta only to discover things are not what they seem, starting with the sexy woman he rescues after an accident on the job site.

Only time will tell if a case of mistaken identity can turn hate into love - but time may not be a luxury they can afford. Can Logan and Bree discover their real selves and true love in time, or will everything be torn down around them?

    "disappointing after an interesting preview"

    I really like Kathleen Brooks, and own many volumes of the two Blue Grass series. I enjoy this family overall and was disappointed in the daughter who served as main character in this book. She wasn't decisive enough for the career field and position she's supposedly in.

    I don't think Ms. Brooks had a real life role model from which to build this character in a believable way, and/or she's not doing enough research when she departs from small town Americana POV (the kind used in the Blue Grass books). It's been obvious for some time which person is going to end up with the brother, so the character build up for book four that one gets in this book is unnecessary to read.

    I was disappointed enough in books two and three that at this time I've never purchased the fourth book to see how it ends.

    "Sexy and Powerful"
    If you could sum up Built for Power in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing fun and intense


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bree because iove strong powerful heroines and she's fierce and kicks butt in a field dominated by men


    What does Amy McFadden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Amy and have listened to a lot of her narration. She's got a voice that holds your interest and brings all the different characters to life beautifully. She does an exception job on this book and I hope she continues to narrate this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Lol I did listen in one sitting


    Any additional comments?


    Another fabulous story in the Women of Power series. I love the character development and that these fictional woman are great role models to woman in general. Bree can take care of business and handle her own as well or better than any man. She's got plans for a big project but decides to keep changing them.

    Enter Logan the architect from London who is determined to find out why his well though out plan keeps needing changes and in an unexpected turn meets Bree and saves her.

    If you love mystery and romantic suspense with a healthy does of humors you will love this book as much as I did! Can't wait to see what's next when the next book is released. This author keeps the story lines fresh and fun and these books are definitely a must read for me!

    Sweet, sassy, and sexy this series will keep you laughing, inspire you and take you on an all around awesome journey with characters who capture your heart

    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love Shirley, and the signs that swing from her walker! That old woman has me laughing every time she shows up in the book. Actually, I love every member of the family. Well, except for maybe Aunt Flory. She’s kind of a biotch.

    I like that this book had not only a great love story but some mystery and suspense. Love Mallory and her kick-ass attitude. Loved seeing Elle and Drake and Reid, the protective brother and Allegra and Margaret, the loving mother and Mary, who became a whole new person in book #1.

    I hated Trevor and wasn’t sad when he got his. And I really hated Jeff and absolutely, positively, without a doubt, loved what happened to him.

    I’m going to start Allegra’s story now but after reading the epilogue of this book it sounds like it might be a book of her keeping secrets and a lot of angst, and I hate that. I hate any book where the heroine keeps secrets because she trying to “protect” a giant of a man, Finn was a football player, for petes sake.

    There wasn’t much sexual tension, which I miss, in this story but there’s some nicely written sex scenes.

    As to the narrator: I love Amy McFadden's narration. It's true that her men all sound like each other but they sound like men, which is rather sexy, and that's what counts. And she makes the book more exciting with her emotions.

    "Love Bree and Logan"

    This is the 2nd book in the series and Kathleen said not disappoint. Bree is a tough as nails SVP at Simpson Global and she can run with the men day In and day out as the leader in construction, but when she falls for Logan she finds that she can be feminine and soft when she's with the right man. Logan allows Bree to be herself, both fierce and soft. Logan is in need of a change. Change in life and location and he finds it with Bree and her family. Once they get past the death threats and attempts on Bree's life, maybe they can start their own.

    Love the book, narrator, the Simpson family and friends. Of course, you can never have too much Shirley.

    "Power to the builder"

    Bree Simpson story I did like better than the first book. Again not Amy's best. I think I would have preferred Karen White as the narrator. But Bree's determination makes for a good listen. I will say Kathleen still seems to be rushing through these stories. But for a fun simple romance and because I really do like Kathleen Brooks I enjoyed this book. It is not for everyone. It's a simple romance

    "amazing book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Built for Power to be better than the print version?

    loved them both equally


    What other book might you compare Built for Power to and why?

    that is a hard question but I would say Chosen For Power as it is the first in the series and you get to meet the characters and in Built For Power the old characters are part of that story also


    Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    wonderful I love how she makes me fell like part of the book


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes and I did listen to it in one day with little breaks to pick kids up and stuff

    Story
    "An entertaining better second book in the series."

    I enjoyed the story, It was better than the first book. It is an easy fun read. I liked the heroine Bree, she was a strong female character, beautiful and quite witty at times. She had some spunk for sure. I always enjoy an strong female character without the TSTL moments. She didn't really have any of those. A bonus. I liked the hero of the story, Logan too, He was handsome, smart and just got hooked on Bree from the moment he saw her. We also go to know him more as the hero of the story much more than the in the previous book with Drake who seemed to fade into the background. So that was a nice change this time around.

    The had so me pretty good chemistry together and there is a very very mild sex scene but the sexual tension is there.

    The story line and plot were good, a little mystery, Lots and lots of great dialogue throughout the entire book. I enjoyed that you continue to get to know characters from previous books that you know are going to get their own, So yes I am going to read the next book, because I really want to read the fourth book, which is Mallory's story. I think that is going to be a good one to look forward too.

    As for the narration, I like Amy McFadden, She is good she does do a decent job in the men's voices for the most part. She does seem to be getting better at it. She does read with some emotion and that is always good, Her reading voice is nice too. Work on the male voices a bit and it would help out the narrations quite a bit.

    My mom loaned me the book via Amazon and I got the audible for 1.99 so yes a great deal for sure.

    "Awesome story, Another great book by Kathleen Brooks."

    Awesome story, Another great book by Kathleen Brooks.

    Bree Simpson has the job she always wanted. It's her dream job for her family construction company. Bree has learnt that women have to work and fight harder for the jobs they want. She will fight for her job and her family company. The construction industry in Atlanta is any old boys club. She is bullied by this old boys club, they want her current job in Atlanta but she will not give it up without a fight. She starts her fight with Logan Ward the architect on her current building program.

    Little did Logan know that Bree was a women. She signs B Simpson and everybody thinks shes a man because its a mans world. Logan rescues a sexy woman from an accident on the building site, little did he know it was B Simpson.

    Can Logan helps Bree fight back against the old boys club in Atlanta?

    I would recommend this book and any book by Kathleen Brooks.
