Houston, We Have a Problem by Dana LeCheminant: Book Review

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

Houston Briggs is at a crossroads, facing the possible end of his career after a devastating injury. With an uncertain future ahead of him and his siblings finding their own happy endings, he’s desperately seeking peace and purpose.

Enter Darcy Paxton, his refreshing new neighbor who is nothing like the women of his past relationships. There’s a realness about her that Houston can’t resist, and she sees the man behind the athlete, bringing calm to the storm of his life.

However, complicating matters is Tamlin Park, a tenacious sports reporter known for her exposés on athletes’ lives. Despite the threat she poses to his already shaky career, Houston can’t deny the chemistry between them, and she surprises him at every turn with her intelligence and passion for baseball.

Caught between two women who seem made just for him, Houston has no idea what his future holds. If only there was a way for them all to find happiness without someone getting hurt.

Books in the Love in Sun City series are tied together and overlap but can be read in any order or as standalones. They contain minimal to no swearing and no explicit content.

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.

Houston, We Have a Problem is the fourth book in the Love in Sun City series. While you probably could read this just fine as a standalone, I definitely feel like this is a series that is best enjoyed as a series... especially this one!  I would say the previous three could be read in any order, but you'll definitely want to save this one for last. 

Unlike most series where the next book generally takes place at some point AFTER the previous, the books in this series have overlapping timelines. This has been really fun to read, as with each book we're seeing some of the same moments from a different sibling's perspective, so it really builds the anticipation for the next one even more. No other story has intrigued me quite as much as Houston's. Now, I'm not usually one for a love triangle... but with the glimpses we were given in the previous books... well, I was dying to see how it all would play out. And let me just say, it absolutely did not disappoint. I don't want to give anything away with this one... but I will say I was so happy with the turn of events and found Houston's story to be my favorite of them all. Don't let the idea of a love triangle scare you off, because I promise this one was done exceptionally well. All those teasers and the anticipation they built absolutely paid off and I loved it! 

Houston, We Have a Problem is a closed-door romance with kisses only.
