1. Slow build - yes, there's somewhat immediate attraction, which I expect to see in a Romance novel; however, true to her form, Fairchild doesn't throw her characters right into bed, which I appreciate. And I know I've mentioned it in other reviews about her past novels, but the author's ability to write sex scenes and romance without "bodice ripper" words takes her romances to an entire new level for me. Fairchild can write an intensely hot scene without making me want to gag over words or skip pages whilst rolling my eyes so hard back in my head that I may lose them ;) (thanks for that, Lia)!
2. Strong, developed characters - romance is the name of the game so that will be a focus point; however, Logan and Mollie have issues and lives outside of their attraction to one and other and those things are fully explored in the story and don't just serve as quick words in between sex scenes. Additionally, the entire Bridges family is lovable and some of my favorite characters to have read about in 2019 (I read a very early copy and am only writing my review now that the book has published).
3. Heart - Logan is back, somewhat hesitantly at first, with his family after serving in the military. Readers will not be able to avoid being touched at how he finds his way to the hub of a family in pain and in desperate need of support.
4. Story - combined with the strong characters, I appreciate the work Fairchild puts into ensuring her readers get a developed story that has the sexy romance-y parts that lovers of the genre savor, while also including humor, fun, intrigue, and even whimsy. I was invested in this family, the couple, and the evolving story from the first page.
5. Friction - the story has pain, anger, frustration, and more. There are familial issues, mental issues, past demons, and normal, daily struggles that readers can connect with and relate to throughout. I like that about novels that do it well (and this one does). Yes, I read to escape at times and I know many readers do, but escaping while also learning about people and issues you may not have experience with is valuable and authors who make it happen authentically while simply putting together a great story are my favorites.
Bonus reason: try not to ADORE Belly Bean and her relationship with pretty much anyone she interacts with during the story!!
I am once again a raving fan of a Lia Fairchild novel and set of characters. I've thought about Mollie, Logan, and the entire Bridges clan many times since reading this book - almost as if they are real and I can call up and check on them if I like (wouldn't that be nice, readers?).
Mollie, a nurse and an old high school classmate steps in to help Logan and finds that she is not only in love with Logan but also his family. Can she help Logon overcome his demons or does her secret stand in the way? If she loses Logan, will she lose the family, that she has come to love, also?
Ms. Fairchild pens just the right amount of laughter, tears, heartache and happiness together to make wonderful read. One you will not want to miss.
In the first book of this series we meet Logan, an Army vet who, like so many others, is trying to find his place in the civilian world and within his family now that he is home. Into his life walks Molly, a strong, smart woman who is no damsel in distress. Watching them fall in love is a journey of tenderness, give-n-take, humor and desire.
Building Bridges sets up the characters for the rest of the series, but does it without taking away from the main story. By doing this, even the secondary characters are full of life.
I was a beta reader for this book and enjoyed it so much, I read my copy 4 times and bought a copy from Amazon when it was released.
I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book.

When tragedy strikes. Logan is an ex veteran, returns home to help his family.....Which is not an easy task.
They’re all struggling, when Molly, a nurse and old friend of Logan’s, steps in to help.
Can Molly save Logan and his family?
This story really pulled at the heartstrings. Look forward to reading more by this author
