In Deep by Brenda Rothert
My rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars
Brenda Rother’s IN DEEP is a heartwarming story that held me encaptivated. April Byerly becomes the new house mom for Grieves House, home for pregnant teenagers; established by Ivy and Reed Lockhart. She is turned off by Reed’s brother, Mason Lockhart; however, as the two get to know each other, emotions turn. This contemporary romance takes place in Lovely, Missouri. It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.
Brenda Rother does a great job with her character development. I like Mason. He is thirty years old, tech business owner. He is a math and computer programing guru. He understandably swore off of relationships nine years’ prior after being betrayed by his college girlfriend. He is intelligent and protective. He also has a secrete he is keeping from his family. I like twenty-eight-year-old April. She is a former science teacher. She is very motherly and an excellent role model for the girls at Grieves House. She is a good person with a big heart.
I like that Ivy ropes April into taking dance lessons with Mason as a partner. The two get to know and confide in each other. They are really good for one another and grow throughout the story.
I like Miss Dee Dee. She gives some good advice and is an interesting character.
I enjoyed the plot. There were some interesting things that happened throughout the story. IN DEEP was full of emotion and well-written. I love Mason’s older brother Kyle and his kids. I cannot wait to read his story next in book three, DRAWN DEEPER.
