Resisting Roots ~ Audrey Carlan ~ New Release & Review

Resisting Roots by Audrey Carlan #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 5th April 2016
Resisting Roots A Lotus House Novel #1 Goodreads Book Link
Yoga instructor Genevieve Harper is a blond bombshell loaded down with responsibility and sacrifice. She makes the most out of raising her two siblings in the wake of their parents’ tragic accident. At twenty-four, she doesn’t have time to devote to a man…especially not the devastatingly handsome Trent Fox, who’s known for being a “player” on and off the baseball field.
Trent has the best hitting average in the league. Recently, he suffered a torn hamstring that takes him to the Lotus House Yoga Center for recuperation. There he meets the curvy, petite blonde with soulful black eyes and candy-coated glossy lips he’d like to do more to than kiss. He secures the flexible hottie for daily private lessons that ultimately show him how sensual the art of yoga can be.
Can love grow between a woman who’s rooted in her life and a man who resists any notion of staying in one place?
If you’re intrigued by the practice of yoga and desire a sensual, intensely erotic, and uniquely spiritual read with characters capable of performing pretzel-like sexual acts, the Lotus House series is for you.  Each of the seven books can be read as a standalone but are better read in order. No cliffhangers. Books are erotic romances written for mature audiences 18+.

Elizabeth's Review

4 Stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

Review copy provided by Author

This is a book I was curious about because I miss my yoga practice and was curious to see what a "yoga romance" would look like. I'm so glad I took the chance and got to know Viv and Trent.

 Early on Trent is the stereotypical "player" athlete who is playing by his own rules. His agent forces him out of his comfort zone and into a yoga studio where it's lust at first site when he meets his teacher, Viv. Viv is the polar opposite of Trent! She's the guardian for her two younger siblings and struggling to make ends meet by working two jobs. She's attracted to Trent too, but doesn't understand the impact she has on him.

These two are fun together. Some aspects of their relationship move very quickly, but circumstances keep full on sexy times at bay giving them a chance to get to know one another. I enjoyed watching Trent begin to appreciate the world around him and watching his attitude change as he started to fall for Viv. Viv was cautious and always seemed to be waiting for the other shoe to drop. The supporting cast around Trent and Viv isn't large, but the relationships involved are all important and play a role in molding our characters. The dynamic between Trent and his parents and with Viv's siblings played a big part in how much I ended up liking him and rooting for him to get things right.

 This is my first Audrey Carlan book and the first in the Lotus House series - I hope it won't be the last for either!
