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.
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.
This book is so much more than I expected.
Lotus is a child of New Orleans working in high fashion in New York City. The design house is creating a new type of wearable technology and wants NBA player Kenan to be the spokesperson. Kenan and Lotus have met before, since her cousin Iris is married to his teammate August. She knows she is attracted to him, but is taking time away from men to work on herself and deal with parts of her past she’s tried to bury her whole life. Kenan is freshly out of a nasty divorce where he was betrayed on many levels by his ex-wife, the media, and people he thought were friends. He wants to protect his heart, and his daughter, by not jumping into a relationship. They decide to be friends, but true love cannot be stopped.
So much happens in this book. There is humor and joy and love and friendship, but also deep, emotional pain and tragedy. Ultimately there is also healing. There is a beautiful blending of beliefs. There is power. When Lotus was a child, she and Mimi had a conversation about the powerful thunderstorm that had Lotus captivated. When Mimi commented that most people are afraid of storms and Lotus stated that she was not, Mimi replied simply “Of course not, you are the storm.” That is perfectly Lotus. She may be tiny but she is strong and powerful and mighty. She has generations of fire in her veins and lightning in her eyes.
I feel like I could go on about this book for pages and pages, yet at the same time I don’t want to tell anything because I don’t want to give anything away. This book is an experience, though. And definitely one worth reading.
