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.
5 Star Review by Ashley
My heart is so full after finishing Hook Shot. My tummy still has flutters and my face is still split in two. But make no mistake, this is Kennedy Ryan- so that road was far from easy. Even being gutted more than once, I couldn't look away.
Lotus- what a firecracker. She was so real but almost too awesome to be true. Strong and sassy. Loyal and brave. She knew who she was. What she would and wouldn't stand for. And don't even get me started on her fashion sense...For as much as I loved Lotus (and that's a whole hell of a lot), it was Kenan that made this book jump. It was his patience and calm. How even after all his heart had been through, he didn't close it off to love. But he only wanted it with one person- Lotus.
She made him work for it, and he was more than happy to. He took his time learning the truth of Lotus. The song of her. And as she revealed each painful memory my heart just ached more and more. But it was the anticipation that kept me riveted. Can you say slow burn? Yes the chemistry was there from the start but there was so much more to them than that. They connected on a deeper level than either of them had ever experienced. The intimacy of it all scared them both but there was no way they were walking away. Except their lives didn't exactly mesh with their relationship goals. And when an unexpected tragedy sets off a chain of events that left everyone reeling.
From start to finish, Hook Shot had me by the heart. Kennedy Ryan tackled some heavy topics within the pages of this book but she also laced it with humor and heat. There was such a good balance between the drama and hurt and healing and hope that I couldn't read fast enough. Lotus and Kenan's journey was heartfelt and profound and the thing that happily ever after dreams are made of.
