A deeply emotional standalone romance set in the worlds of professional basketball and high fashion.
Divorced. Single dad. Traded to a losing squad. Cheated on, betrayed, exposed. My perfect life blew up in my face and I’m still picking up the pieces. The last thing I need is her. A wildflower. A storm. A woman I can’t resist. Lotus DuPree is a kick to my gut and a wrench in my plans from the moment our eyes meet. I promised myself I wouldn’t trust a woman again, but I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want Lo. She’s not the plan I made, but she’s the risk I have to take.
A warrior. A baller. The one they call Gladiator. Kenan Ross charged into my life smelling all good, looking even better and snatching my breath from the moment we met. The last thing I need is him. I’m working on me. Facing my pain and conquering my demons. I’ve seen what trusting a man gets you. I. Don’t. Have. Time. For. This. But he just keeps coming for me. Keeps knocking down my defenses and stealing my excuses one by one. He never gives up, and now…I’m not sure I want him to.
My Thoughts: 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀
This was my first adventure with Kennedy Ryan and I am already singing her praises. She wrote a story where the reader is emotionally engaged into the character’s journey to love.
Kenan and Lotus had more than just chemistry, they had a deep spiritual and soulful connection. Isn’t funny just when you are determined to put love on the back-burner, it comes to the forefront in full force. You can’t help but love their discovery of each other and the way they complimented the other, all while trying to keep from making mistakes from their past.
Along with all the passion, there were some sensitive subjects addressed in this one and she couldn’t have picked a more perfect pair to weave us through this.
This is a must read, but be prepared to fall in love!!!!!
