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 beloved is mine and I am his"
So much more than a sports romance.
HOOK SHOT was not what I expected at all. Kenan is a basketball player but throughout this story the focus is more on Kenan's private life, his love life and how fate stepped in and he met Lotus.
Kenan has gone through a messy divorce with a fame hungry barbie type ex wife who is part of a reality TV show and Kenan is doing his best to keep his 14 year old daughter out of the limelight.
Kenan first meets Lotus at a party, there is an instant connection although they are only in the same room but Kenan knows he wants her and Lotus avoids him knowing for her it would be dangerous, she is a commitment phoebe through an incident in her past. Kenan doesn't pursue Lotus the first time he let's her go and they don't reconnect until some time later when he is invited to model were Lotus works assisting a fashion designer.
Lotus is a strong independent black woman who loves her job in the fashion industry but she also has a sad history after being rejected by her mother and spent her childhood with her Gran who was superstitious, into voodoo and believed her granddaughter had the same powers. An interesting plot and it also made Lotus an interesting character.
Like I said this is so much more than a sports romance, the plot is well written, the characters interesting, at times the story is moving and heartbreaking and hot in all the right places. With over 40 chapters there is a lot to this story that will grip you and move you in some way.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.
