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?
I can’t tell you enough how deep I’ve fallen in love with Audrey Carlan’s characters. Even more so in this first installment in the Lotus House Series. Once you meet Genevieve Harper I guarantee you will agree with me that she is a character that would be difficult to top because this woman is incredible.
Genevieve becomes the sole provider to her two younger siblings after losing her parents in a fatal accident. She selflessly puts her life on hold, takes on two jobs to support their little family. Despite her selfless sacrifices, they are still barely getting by. If anyone earned a break, she did. She deserved her chance at love and happiness.
Just from their very first encounter Baseball player Trent Fox knew that Genevieve was something special. He made his intent known early on but what he didn’t expect was that she would affect him differently than all the woman he’s come across during his entire career.
What was fantastic about this story was witnessing how Trent went above and beyond in making this remarkable woman feel special. I loved that he didn’t just stop at her happiness rather he was committed to her siblings’ well-being too. Trent’s parent’s involvement… was my absolute favorite aspect of the relationship.
I couldn’t ask for a better pairing in these two. They had completely different upbringings but still, they fit perfectly. I thought their chemistry and the passion was terrific. In every sense, they complimented each other.
I enjoyed every aspect of this book. The narration done by Holly Chandler and Jacob Morgan was great and I wouldn’t mind listening to them again in the future. I would definitely recommend Resisting Roots for those looking for an uplifting, heartwarming and beautiful love story.
