In Roper, Missouri, football is everything. At least, to everyone but high school senior Gin Scott. Gin plans to escape her hometown as soon as she graduates, but her plans to stay under the radar until then are ruined when her secret crush, quarterback Chase Matthews, offers her a coveted spot as one of the Sweet Sixteen. It’s an honor Roper girls dream of, but for independent Gin, it’s more like a nightmare. By rejecting Chase’s invitation, she is ostracized from her classmates, and eventually, most of her town. How sweet it is.

BLURB:


I had it all.
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. 

My Review:

4.5 Stars!!

Hidden Depth is a lovely (pun intended) book about overcoming our fears and letting yourself be loved.

I loved Elle and Justin! Elle goes through something traumatic and struggles to be okay afterward. Justin saves her literally and figuratively. They come from different worlds, but tragedy brings them together. Elle is honest and flawed and that makes her a beautiful character. Justin is almost too good to be true and you can’t help falling in love with him. The small town setting is great. The secondary characters are present but not overbearing.

I did have a couple of things that that left me a bit unsatisfied. The wrap up of Elle’s tragedy was a bit rushed. It was a major catalyst for the events of the book but was wrapped up as almost an afterthought. The other thing was something Justin found out when he returned to his hometown. I know this big secret was a plot driver, but it felt a bit unnecessary and honestly, I thought it had the potential to add another layer to Elle’s story in an entirely different way. I know this is all a bit mysterious, but I don’t do spoilers and both would be spoileriffic. So… sorry, not sorry.

This is a beautiful book about healing and love and letting love help you heal. Another must read from Brenda Rothert.

Book Blurb:

Sometimes appearances deceive. Take me, for instance. I look like a respectable doctor with his shit together, but the rural Montana mental hospital I work at is actually a sanctuary from my demons. At just thirty-five years old, I’ve already failed on an epic scale. Treating patients at Hawthorne Hill is part of my atonement.
I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire.
Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have. I’ll break whatever rules I have to in order to protect this woman who’s been to hell and back. For her, I’ll do harm.

Excerpt:

“How are you today, Allison?” Dr. Heaton asks, her familiar tone making it seem like we’re old friends.

I stare out the window of her office, wondering if the weather outside is as nice as it looks. The sun is shining bright in a clear blue sky again, but it’s April. In my hometown of Chicago, April can be a bitch. It’s cold, rainy, and dreary.

And I’m even farther north now. I bet it’s chilly outside, the sun’s rays just giving the illusion of warmth.

“You can talk to me,” Heaton says for at least the twentieth time since I’ve been here. “Everything said in this room is confidential. I’m here to help you work through the grief I know you’re feeling.”

I glance around her office. There are framed diplomas on the wood-plank walls and bookshelves with books and picture frames arranged just so. The photos show smiling people posing for the camera, all of them smiling so perfectly they could be the paper photos that come in picture frames when you first buy them.

A fountain in the shape of a bunch of bamboo gurgles in a corner, and neatly trimmed bonsai trees line the ledge of the large window behind Heaton’s desk.

Even the box of tissues on the coffee table in front of me has been methodically placed, one corner of the square in front of me so it makes a diamond shape. The top tissue is pulled up, its sides still tucked neatly inside. It looks like a tissue fountain, beautifully shaped into a parallel pattern.

That’s not the tissue box of a doctor whose patients feel comfortable crying. If the box were half-empty, with little white specks of tissue dust dotting the coffee table, I’d at least feel like it was okay to use one.

A smile quirks at my lips as I imagine whipping out a tissue or two. I’m picturing Heaton descending on the box right after me to tidy up the tissue fountain and brush away the tissue flecks.

EXCERPT:

PHOENIX

Standing behind a pillar, I watch the familiar woman. She’s browsing through a rack of cocktail dresses, oblivious to my presence. It’s her mouth that draws me in. That fucking mouth piercing keeps flashes in the lights like the beacon from a lighthouse.
When she tugs on it with her tongue and there’s a twinkle, it hits me where I know her from—Hassan’s arm piece but without the bright blue, chin-length hair. She’s more beautiful with the long, pin straight black hair that sways each time she moves a new dress aside than with the electric-blue wig. Her eyes drift to where I’m standing, and I step to the side, shielding myself from her view with the pillar.
I’m not ready for her to see me. Staying hidden until I know she’s alone is more important than my need to speak with her. Reaching into my pocket, I grab my phone and open the camera. I need to get a photo of Eva and figure out who she is before I expose myself to a possible threat. Hassan follows his dick, but I tend to use my brain. But that doesn’t mean I won’t toy with her a little.
I weave through the racks of clothes and step behind her as she’s standing in front of a mirror holding a hanger with a sleek black dress pressed against her body. Her eyes catch mine in the mirror and widen in recognition. “Eva,” I say with a slight smile to her reflection in the mirror.
Her hand with the dress drops, and she spins around on her heel to face me. She smiles nervously and sucks that fucking ring into her mouth.

KENNEDY

Well, shit. This is no good. Nix is eyeing me like a hungry wolf that just found its next meal. And I’ve never felt so naked in my life.
I want to turn and run. Without a disguise to make me into Eva, Raine, Laura, or one of my other many identities, I don’t know what to say to him. Even though I knew one of my work contacts could see me like this, I wasn’t prepared for it. And of all people, it would have to be the man who already seems to be able to see right through me.
“You shopping for a dress, Nix?” I ask, my tone casual but my heart racing as I continue looking through a rack of dresses.
“You look better without the wig.”
He bypasses my question smoothly. I pause my dress perusal and meet his dark, steely eyes.
“Thanks,” I say crisply. “Now if you’ll excuse me, I have shopping to do.”
Nix follows me to the next rack of dresses. “No need to buy anything new to impress your sugar daddy with. I hear he’s back in Dubai on business.”
“Do you mean Hassan?” I ask, my tone unconcerned. Inside, I feel a flare of annoyance that Nix knew that and I didn’t.
He hums with amusement. “How many sugar daddies do you have, Eva?”
I narrow my eyes in a glare. “I don’t need a sugar daddy, Nix. Don’t be so backward that you assume all attractive women want a man to pay their bills. I pay my own.”
“And what did you say you do for a living, again?”
“I didn’t.”
He’s a few feet away, but Nix’s presence still feels so warm and close that I want to duck my face and run.
“Kennedy.” The sound of my actual name makes me curl up and die inside. “How about this one?”
I turn to my friend Amara, whom I stupidly agreed to come shopping with today. So very fucking stupidly.
“I like it,” I say, smiling weakly at the short, long-sleeved black dress she’s holding up.
Amara looks back and forth between Nix and me and retreats to a rack out of earshot, obviously feeling like she interrupted something.
Just me blowing my cover to the most elusive cyberthief in the world. Nothing to see here.
“Kennedy.” Nix’s deep voice sounds rich with the satisfaction of knowing my real name.

BLURB:

From the author of the On the Line and Fire on Ice hockey romance series comes a sultry novel featuring a brooding NHL player who’s hell on skates—and the no-nonsense woman who forces him to clean up his act.

Miranda: Even though I’m broke, putting myself through college, and working two jobs, I’m trying to make the best of it. Meanwhile, Jake Birch, hockey’s hottest bad boy, lives in a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago—and still complains about every little thing in his penthouse. But after I tell him off, instead of getting me fired, Jake requests me as his personal housekeeper. Then he starts flirting with me. Only I’m not flirting back . . . at least, I’m trying not to. Did I mention that he’s hockey’s hottest bad boy?

Jake: I’ve met the best woman at the worst possible time. Miranda is the fire to my ice—a sexy, charmingly candid spark who breaks down my walls and reminds me what it’s like to feel again. But I’m being forced to date my team owner’s daughter to keep my job, so I can’t be caught with Miranda. Still, we’re getting closer—until Miranda finds out about my “girlfriend.” And that’s not the only secret I’ve been keeping. But Miranda’s the one I want . . . even if she doesn’t believe me.

What can I say about this book? Hot cover? Check. Great story with amazing characters? Check. Sexy hockey player? Double check.

Hockey romances are my kryptonite. I love a sexy NHL player with a great romance and some ice time. It was like a Cinderella fairytale with extra flare. Jake the playboy hockey player meets Miranda the beautiful maid tasked to cleaning his penthouse suite. But Miranda isn’t a puck bunny. She’s smart and confident and Jake can’t charm the pants off her with a smile and a sexy look. Right away anyway.

Miranda settles the asshole vibes and brings Jake back to life. While Jake breaks down Miranda’s walls and shows her he’s more than the playboy.

Everything about this story I loved; the chemistry, the romance, the hockey and most of all the love. These two were so cute and hot together once they let their guards down.

This was a low angst, feel good romance that I devoured. I was hooked from beginning to end.

 

Sara’s Review

4/5 Stars!

I laughed. I cried (just a little bit). I swooned. I cheered.

Hooked was great! I am a tiny bit ashamed to say this is my first Brenda Rothert novel. She has been recommended to me time and time again. I am so glad I got to read this!

Miranda works her booty off to pay the bills and go to school. She is working as a housekeeper at a swanky hotel under a nitpicky, PIA boss.

Jake is a rich, sexy, jerk of a hockey player living in the same hotel that employs Miranda.

When these two meet, sparks fly and it is fire on the page. She can’t stand him, well, except for the part where he is super hot. He wants her, but really can’t have her. She tells him off. He requests her as his personal housekeeper.

It was magic and I loved every minute of it!

Go now and get her hot little hands on this fabulous book
