Today I am so excited to be participating in the Release Blitz for Audrey Carlan’s Resisting Roots, the first book in her new Lotus House Series.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Lotus House, #1
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+.

BE AWARE: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAINS SPOILERS.
I really enjoyed Resisting Roots. It was a fun, exciting read that I got through in a couple of days. Carlan has written a great contemporary romance that is perfect for a relaxing day spent at the beach or poolside. It’s the perfect summer beach read. As someone who has taken yoga on and off for years the fact that the series revolves around a yoga studio appealed to me. I like that each chapter started with a different yoga pose. Carlan did a good job of introducing poses and terms to people who haven’t taken yoga classes before.
I enjoyed the relationship between the two main characters Trent and Genevieve. There was a particularly steamy scene in the yoga studio that I sincerely enjoyed. Not only was Trent and Genevieve’s relationship fun to read about I also loved the relationships between Genevieve and her siblings as well as Trent’s budding relationship with them as well.
There were times when the relationship between Trent and Genevieve felt a little rushed. Their initial meeting and the buildup to the consummation of their relationship was very well paced. However, afterwards it seemed to jump ahead. There were certain things that I felt could Carlan could have had spill out into the second book instead of cramming it all into a single book. It seems as if she felt she had to cram Trent and Genevieve’s entire story into one book instead of spreading it out.
Overall I genuinely enjoyed Resisting Roots and am looking forward to the next book in the series, Sacred Serenity.
