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.
Hidden Depth is the fourth title in the Lockhart Brothers series and features the youngest of the Lockhart brothers Justin. Justin and Elle's story is a friends to lovers romance, with completely captivating and endearing characters.
Strong themes of love, family, survival, suspense, loss and danger evolve throughout the story line.
Elle is an incredibly strong character, a survivor who not only endures after a brutal attack, but thrives with Justin's attention and affection.
I adored Justin's character a completely well meaning, good guy with a heart of gold.
