Blog Tour & Review: HIDDEN DEPTH


Hidden Depth (Lockhart Brothers, #4) by Brenda Rothert

An adult standalone, contemporary romance


I had it all.

Breaking into the entertainment business as a teenager wasn’t easy. I spent years of my childhood traveling, auditioning and hoping my big break would come. And when I did, I rose to a level I never imagined.

Elle Tyler: model, singer and actress. I couldn’t go anywhere without security anymore. It was everything I ever wanted and more - fame, fortune and worldwide recognition. At age twenty-four, I was living a dream.

But a single act of violence shattered my fairytale existence. In a matter of seconds, all the goodness in me was ripped to shreds. Overnight, the people around me dropped away, moving on to find the next big thing. I gave up on myself, becoming a woman so dark and forlorn I no longer recognized myself.

But the stranger who saved me that day, Justin Lockhart, never gave up on me. He still saw light through my darkness. And as we grew closer, I started to see it, too. And I also started to see that before that terrible day, maybe I didn’t really have it all. Maybe I was always missing the only thing that really matters.

This is the fourth book in the Lockhart Brothers series by this author.  Fans will know that this is Justin's book and he is the last brother to fall in love.  This is a sweet friends to lovers story.  Justin happens to be in the right place at the right time to help Elle and their friendship blossoms from there.  

I don't know that there is any surprise twists in this one.  There is some suspense and a very graphic incident with Elle at the beginning of the book.  However, it is well written and we get to see the development of a relationship despite the drama of the real world.  

This can be read as a stand alone but it is always great to peek in on the Lockhart family.  I enjoyed catching up with the other couples and the comaraderie between the brothers.  A nice romantic read.  Very sweet ending!
