    Good Story

    Hidden Depth is the fourth book in the Lockhart series. It centers around Justin Lockhart, the baby of the family. He is finishing up is internship and getting ready to head home and join the family law firm. On his way to a meeting he comes to the rescue of Elle Tyler, who happens to be a celebrity. They slowly become friends and then eventually become a couple. I liked Justin and Elle, but I wasn't really buying their relationship. I feel like the other books had more angst and suspense in them and I loved that about this series. Hidden Depth is a good book, just not as good as the other three, in my opinion.

    Getting back up when life knocks you down

    This story may be about some really tragic events but it also portrays the strength of the human soul and its ability to heal and overcome life-changing events. Especially when we have the love and unconditional support of those that look beyond their own needs and desires. Elle has that in Justin. From the first moment that he sees her, his only focus is to make sure she is safe and well. And yes he does come off as a tad bit obsessive but it is truly his love and desire to support her that is behind it. I can understand Elle not trusting so openly considering what her life is and what she goes through but she does get where he's coming from eventually so all's well that ends well. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the author for voluntary review consideration.

    Loved the Characters - Loved the Story

    The previous Lockhart Brothers did not disappoint. I'm a huge fan of this series, and once again: They keep getting better and better. Justin was down right perfect. And our heroine, Elle, is someone you root for to get her man in the end. Now, pause here as I'm going to shock some of you. Yes, I believe this can be read as a complete standalone. You can even start here and go backwards. Although you are introduced to the other brothers and their significant others, there isn't too much too spoilery that would ruin going backwards. NOT THAT I'M SAYING TO DO THAT. But you could. Back to the book. Justin is one of those men you can relate to. Not looking for love and HEA, but when someone comes into his life he can't stay away from, he just doesn't. And he always has her best interests at heart. I do worry when I read about celebrities and relationships with a non-celebrity. But how Ms Rothert crafted the story had you believing this Hollywood HEA could happen. This story was everything in a romance read I want and need. Definitely a re-read for me! Yep, I'm going to say it: Whether or not you've read Brenda Rothert before or any of the series, this is one I highly recommend. You'll love the path the characters follow. The drama doesn't leave you drained and you finish with a perfect read. 5 out of 5 stars.

    A cute romance, but I wished there was more

    Hidden Depth may start off with a traumatic and violent event, but at its heart, it's a sweet country boy and city girl romance. The story centers around Justin, the youngest Lockhart sibling, and pop star, Elle. This is book 4 in the interconnected stand alone Lockhart Brothers series. On paper, Elle and Justin couldn't be more different. It's only after the world Elle knew falls apart around her, that she realizes that what she had may not actually be what she wants or needs. Honestly, Elle wasn't my favorite heroine. She definitely grew as a character through the story, but for the majority of it, she felt sorry for herself and I got whiplash from her back and forth decisions at the end. Although Justin is wonderfully swoony most of the time, I just never connected to him or Elle. I didn't feel like I really got to know either of them and their relationship was instalove at mach speed. I understand that trauma can heighten emotions, but they just seemed to go from meeting to professing their undying love in the blink of an eye. Add in the continued threat of a deranged stalker and a hometown "surprise" from another mentally questionable individual and I just felt it all seemed too unbelievable and disjointed. The secondary characters were enjoyable, however, especially Andre, and had I read the previous books in this series, I would have probably enjoyed the Lockhart sibling cameos and easter eggs more. I have loved the other books that I have read from this author, but sadly, I just didn't connect with this one. Overall, this is still a cute romance though and I rooted for these two to get their happily ever after. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Another Lockhart brother to steal your heart!

    4.5 Stars! Elle seems to have the world in the palm of her hand. She is at the highest peak of her career until she is caught off guard and her world feels shattered in the matter of an instant. Darkness and depression are slowly seeping in. Then along comes a savior and unexpected friendship that manages to bring brightness to the long and dreary days spent in recovery. Justin’s schooling to become an attorney is complete and his temporary research job is coming to an end. His plans to move back to the small town of Lovely are moving forward and he will soon join the family practice. Then a sudden horrific discovery and the recovery of a stranger consume his thoughts. His plans to return to Lovely haven’t changed, but now he has no intention of returning home alone. As always, this author delivers great writing, a unique storyline, well written characters, and perfect pacing. The relationship between Elle and Justin is a somewhat slow build. What begins as a cautious friendship develops into a swoon worthy romance. As with all the Lockhart brothers, Justin will steal your heart! Hidden Depth is the fourth installment in the Lockhart Brothers series. All books in this series can be read as a standalone, but I strongly recommend starting at the beginning with book one, Deep Down, in order to get the full effect of the family dynamic and history of all characters.
