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+.

Resisting Roots by Audrey Carlan is such an amazing romance. The characters are unique and intriguing. First we have Genevieve, who is a Yoga instructor and is the sole caretaker of her brother and sister. Genevieve has been through a lot but she doesn’t let her circumstances swallow her up, instead she shines with grace. She’s a fantastic heroine, partly due to her strength and resilience. Genevieve gave up dreams when her parents died and put her brother and sister’s needs ahead of her own. She is definitely one of my favorite female characters.

When Pro Baseball player, Trent Fox, pulls his hamstring, he is ordered to utilize Yoga as a method of rehabilitation. Trent is a great hero in his own right. He’s downright sexy and can easily get any woman he wants and he knows this and uses it to his advantage, but when he sees Genevieve for the first time, he’s speechless.

“Genevieve Harper was a game changer, and I couldn’t put my finger on why.”

It’s been three years since Genevieve has been with a man, but Trent’s presence is making her feel emotions she’s put on the back burner. Trent and Genevieve exhibit plenty of chemistry and when they finally give into their attraction, it just reinforces how much they need each other.

At the start of every chapter, the author gives us a Yoga term and describes it. As someone who’s never practiced Yoga, I have to admit that I want to give it a try just based on this book. This is the first book in the Lotus House series but I will certainly be on the lookout for book two. Resisting Roots is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a beautiful romance full of passion, growth, and self-discovery. Reviewed by Jennifer for MNP!
