My Review in a Nutshell:
It’s a bold move to bring back a character that is despised, and impressive when it results in a flawless story. Drawn Deeper is hands down the most realistic romance I have read. I felt connected with the story and characters, so much so, I read it in one sitting. Okay, two sittings, I had to stop and eat. After the “choking on a hot wing while reading” debacle, I was banned from multi-tasking. Ugh.
What’s It All About?
Introducing…Kyle Lockhart! The freshly divorced doctor who has only been with ONE woman. Yes, you read that right, and the woman was a shrew. Kyle has finally found a new normal post-divorce, raising two heart-broken sons and managing a successful career as a surgeon are his main priorities. Love being put on the back-burner with his plate already entirely too full. So imagine his surprise when he finds himself DROOLING over Meredith, yes, you read that right too. The same Meredith who left Reed Lockhart at the altar, leading Grace Lockhart to turn her into the town pariah. Add in the psycho ex-wife Kim, who has fallen off the map, and you just know the shit will ultimately hit the fan.
I am loving the diversity of this series, each standing on their own two feet with unique characters and polar-opposite plot-lines! Kyle and Meredith are no non-sense characters, they don’t play games, and for the most part are emotionally sound. No “finding myself” plot-line, or “I need to be fixed by love” drama that overhauls the story, and OMG was it a breath of fresh air. Without having to focus so much on a characters self-revelations, the story was able to blossom in more ways than one. Predominately the ideal of second chances for divorcees, and the not so common Runaway Brides, completely inspiring. And oh-my-lordy, the DOUBLE Mama Drama that is Grace Lockhart and Kim Lockhart, I could smack them both senseless. They’re the perfect villains, causing even more perfect real-life dilemmas for the lovebirds. I fell in love hard with both characters and their hot and steamy romance. I’ve never swooned so badly for a book-man in my life. And Brenda, you turned Meredith “the Wicked Witch of Lovely”, into a delightful misunderstood character who I adore, well done!
I am devouring all that the brothers have to offer. Drawn Deeper, especially. It was an effortlessly intriguing plot-line, filled with impending doom, just the way I like it. I CAN NOT wait to see what else is in store for the Lovely Lockhart brothers next!
