Building Bridges by Lia Fairchild is the first novel in the Bridges Brothers series by Lia Fairchild, a new to me author. The series tells the story of four Brothers, who are attempting to get their lives on track after suffering a devastating loss.   Building Bridges delivered a heartfelt romance with well-developed characters while focusing on the effects of the loss of loved ones and PTSD. This is Logan’s story.

After surviving an ambush, which killed most of the members of his team, Logan returned hope to take up the responsibility of caring for his family. This was no simple task as Logan had issues of his own, which weighed heavily on him.   However, when a beautiful woman from his past stepped in to assist him, he found himself on the road which led to healing and love.

I enjoyed the romance, which developed between the main characters. Despite their immediate attraction to each other, they spent time getting to know each other on an emotional level before engaging in a physical relationship.

Logan struggled with PTSD. He had no memories of what happened on that fateful day, but he blames himself for the death of his men. Stepping in to help with his family in their time of loss was a way to compensate for what he believed to be his fault. He proved to be strong, dependable and a real-life hero.

Mollie was a compassionate soul. A loner by nature, she gravitated towards this family w who were in dire need of healing. Everything she did was with good intentions, so it was easy for them to embrace her into their fold.

I enjoyed getting to know the secondary characters, especially Logan’s youngest cousin Belle, aka Belly Bean. She was such an adorable child and smart for her years.

If you choose to pick this one, prepare yourself for an emotional journey. Building Bridges was a beautifully written romance that dealt with a wide range of issues with which many readers can relate. It made me angry at the situations the characters faced. It brought tears to eyes watching the characters trying to get over their loss, especially the younger ones. Then there were the humorous scenes that aided in balancing out the sadness and the anger.

Overall, I had a wonderful time with this book and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
