Crossing the Brooklyn Briggs by Dana LeCheminant: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

High school teacher Brooklyn Briggs has always been great with chemistry but terrible with relationships. When a guy drops into her life—literally—and offers to coach her into getting a date with her longtime crush, she's willing to accept any help she can get.

Even if her new flirting coach is her brother Houston's best friend, the guy who drove her crazy all throughout high school.

Jordan Torres never expected to see Brooklyn again. After the way he teased her in high school, she has every right to hate him. But despite warnings from her brother, he's drawn to her in a way he's never been before and can't seem to remember that she's in love with someone else.

Neither can she.

Both of them value their relationship with Houston too much to risk things going wrong, but they may not have a choice. The heart wants what the heart wants. Besides, Brooklyn can't turn a blind eye to perfect chemistry.

Dana LeCheminant has been telling stories since she was old enough to know what stories were. After spending most of her childhood reading everything she could get her hands on, she eventually realized she could write her own books, and since then she always has plots brewing and characters clamoring to be next to have their stories told. A lover of all things outdoors, she finds inspiration while hiking the remote Utah backcountry and cruising down rivers. Until her endless imagination runs dry, she will always have another story to tell.

Crossing the Brooklyn Briggs is part of the Love in Sun City series. While these books could certainly be read as standalones, I think they are best enjoyed together. Each book focuses on a different sibling, but all along the same timeline. As such, there is some crossover between the stories. I've only read a few other books written like this, but I absolutely love seeing the same moments from different perspectives. With each book I've read, it only has me that much more excited to read the next. 

This story focuses on Brooklyn and Jordan. I am always a fan of 'brother's best friend' and I felt like this one was done really well. Their chemistry is undeniable, but I really loved how much they both respected Houston too. We've gotten to see a little bit of Brooklyn's technology/text inabilities in the previous books, and I loved getting to see it even more in this one. This certainly lead to some great laugh out loud moments. These two were just so fantastic together and I couldn't help but enjoy every single moment. 

Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge is a closed-door romance with amazing chemistry, but kisses only and no language.
