I’ve come undone. For years I thought the world looked at my family and saw perfection. I was a busy surgeon and my wife was devoted to our two boys. But her devotion crumbled as her alcoholism took over. The outside world saw all too well what I wanted to deny.
Ten months ago she filed for divorce, packed up and moved away. To where – I don’t know. Nor do I care. But my boys do. And they’re left with me, a man who never learned how to be the dad they deserve.
Just when I’m starting to pick up the pieces, my world is rocked again by the last woman I’d expect. Given her past with my family, she’s a bad idea. But I’m drawn like a moth to a flame. I can’t stay away, even though I know this, too, will eventually crumble around me.
Second Chance Perfection
Ever feel like you are in a character rut where all the characters are painted with the same brushstroke and bucket of paint? Well, look no further than Drawn Deeper. Brenda Rothert has given us Kyle Lockhart to be that breath of fresh reading. This novel is part of a series that can definitely be read as a standalone, but strongly urge you to read the preceding novels for the character arc of Kyle and Meredith. To be honest, I read Deep Down and almost skipped In Deep. (Yeah, I know stupid girl). But I didn't. And in the vein of honesty, I'm glad I got to know them as secondary characters first. Now onto my enjoyment of this story...
First, Meredith? Okay, maybe I was in a bubble. But I thought I was not supposed to like her. I love when authors give me a character I'm not interested in HEA and gives me one. It gives you hope that everyone deserves to be loved. Next and most importantly - Kyle. Go back to the first sentence of the review. Okay now: Heartbroken man, left to pick up the pieces, trampled on emotionally, financially, and physically deprived. You know the character? He holds the grudge on those feelings and is not going to allow anyone to break down those walls. Got the character? Okay now toss him away with yesterday's trash because that is NOT Dr. Lockhart! Kyle is loyal, trusting, open and giving. All the swoon worthiness wrapped up in a tall drink of water. Yes, Meredith and Kyle have some hiccups along the way, but what relationship doesn't. Ms Rothert gives you an enjoyable tale of second chances to get lost in.
Now, I have claimed Mason (In Deep) as my book boyfriend. However, as much as I love that smart mouthed man, I LOVED Kyle and Meredith's story even more. Do you really need to read the entire series? No but consider yourself warned you should. If you are a first time reader for Brenda Rothert - start with the Lockhart brothers series book 1 before jumping to this one - you won't be sorry. If you read the previous book, she definitely gives you a story to read over and over again. 5 out of 5 stars.
I love me some Lockhart brothers. This book is about Kyle, the oldest brother. Did I mention he's a doctor.... A sexy doctor. Anyway it starts off kind of where the last book left off. He and his wife divorce because she was a unfaithful drunk that neglected her children. Anyway Kyle is a single, handsome dad, that works a lot. He has a babysitter for his two boys and then he runs into a old family friend that had a fallout with the Lockhart's. It starts innocent and she volunteers to help tutor his boys but their chemistry is strong. They both feel attracted to each other but there's so much history and bad blood between Meredith and Kyle's family. Things get a little awkward and out of control. Its up to Kyle to take control of this situation and relationship. He needs to go and get what he wants, what he deserves.
Read this book, its good and I myself felt good reading a book about a 37 year old man.
Brenda's books are like fine wine. They get better with time. This latest Lockhart brother is a perfect mix of sweet and hot! The things Kyle did in this book are hot, hot, hot. But there is a catch. The woman he wants to do these hot things with is his brother's ex-fiancé. Meredith is a woman trying to take care of her father and find her place in a new town that has labeled her with a scarlet letter after leaving one of the town's favorite sons at the altar. Kyle is a man trying to find balance between being a single dad and a doctor. Faith leads Meredith to offer to tutor Kyle's sons. Both see the wonderful in each other, but both know the path to a happily-ever-after will be rocky at best. Are they willing to fight for what they want? One-click now this book now! '''
