Blog Tour: Drawn Deeper by Brenda Rothert

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.

Review by Jen Skewes

Drawn Deeper is the third book in this series and Kyle Lockhart’s story.  I love this series and could not wait for his book.  After meeting him in the first two books and seeing all that he has been going through with his ex wife I wanted to see him find someone who would love him unconditionally and for him to find his happily ever after. 

It has been about 10 months since his divorce and right now the most important thing in Kyle’s life is his two boys. When he was married he may not have always been there for them because of his long and crazy hours as a surgeon.  But everything in his life has changed and his kids come before anything.  He has no plans of meeting anyone right now.  It’s just him and his boys and that is all he needs.  Until Meredith comes into his life, changing everything he thought he wanted and needed. 

Meredith doesn't have the best reputation in the small town of Lovely and the Lockharts are not exactly her biggest fan right now.  But talking to Kyle Lockhart, spending time with him and his children sparks something in her.   When she came back to town because her father needed her she never thought she would find someone that made her feel.  Not in this town and especially not a Lockhart.  But Kyle is this amazing man who loves his children and makes her feel special.  Being with him even just as friends at first is easy for her. They certainly have a connection and loving his children is the icing on the cake.  But can Kyle and Meredith really have any sort of relationship together?  Given the way their families feel about each other as well as their history will their relationship be accepted by all?

First I must say that where Kyle Lockhart is concerned, Ms. Rothert did not disappoint.  Just the way that man loved his kids, and how he completely stepped up when it was time to really be a father alone made my heart swoon.  But then throw in the way he was with Meredith and that just made me fall in love with him even more.  He never treated her like anything other than the person that she was.  He never held her past with his brother against her.  He was kind and sweet and the two of them together had such great chemistry.  They both had their issues where love was concerned but together they were able to move on from it.

Meredith was a wonderful heroine.  I honestly never faulted her for what happened all those years ago.  Things happen for a reason and this is a perfect example of that.  She really was a caring person and I loved how much she fell for not only Kyle but his two boys.  She was there for them and loved them and cared for them at a time when they really needed it. There was a moment towards the end that I absolutely loved.  It was a moment between Meredith and one of the other Lockhart women and it just proved how you truly can move and and how there are people who can move on from the past and live in the present.  It really was a touching moment that I loved.  This was another fantastic story from Ms. Rothert.  I loved seeing all of the Lockhart men and cannot wait for the next one.
