I'll be honest, I didn't know what kind of story this was when I first picked it up. It was a story written by the amazing Audrey Carlan. I didn't need to know anything else to know I would more than likely fall in love with this story…the characters within. Resisting Roots, I didn't know what it meant, until I dove in and read. Resisting Roots indeed. This is a story of two people, from very different walks of life who resist being tied down for different reasons. It's a story of finding yourself. Hearts and heads are at war, in this non-stop, spine-tingling, pulling heartstrings, emotional, sexy book.

Genevieve is a 24 year old yoga instructor, hair stylist, and "single mom" to her brother and sister. She's given up her dreams in order to take care of her own after a heart wrenching accident leaves them alone 3 years prior. Vivvie doesn't have time for anything except her siblings and work. She's put in a position most people aren't put in at her age. I felt for this poor girl who had everything in front of her, to only have it ripped in such a sad, poignant turn of events. This girl is the epitome of strong, smart and beautiful! She took what had she was dealt and didn't back down. She took on the role of mother and man-of-the house with no complaints. Family comes first.

Trent. Oh Trent, what can I say about him? He's a wicked hot and cocky superstar baseball player. Every girl dreams of having him, even if for only one night. Trent's happy to have it that way. He beds women for one night never having to see them again after, never settling down……Resisting Roots. A torn hamstring lands him in the hot-seat since his contract is almost up. He has a choice, work hard and recover before the new season starts, or risk not being signed again.

I don't read erotic-romance novels often and now, after reading Resisting Roots, I don't know why that is - because I genuinely enjoyed every minute of this story. The yoga aspect gave Genevieve and Trent's storyline an interesting, different touch. Each chapter begins with the description of a yoga pose, which I loved. And the author did a great job explaining the concept of chakras and how they effect our spirit, hopes, and even prevent us (or block us) from that which we seek most. It was a detail I've never seen in a work of fiction before, and it added to the character's development and the feel of the book-which was lovely and happy and sensual.

The heat between the hero and heroine was OFF THE CHARTS. Honestly, this book's love scenes were some of the best I have read anywhere, by any author. You will definitely find yourself hot and bothered whenever Genevieve and Trent are together. And the author did a great job with the dual narrative. Trent's voice actually sounded like a MAN's voice - which was so refreshing. He was rugged without being too macho, funny without being clownish, and sexy without being unrealistic. Genevieve's internal dialogue was consistent and just the right amount of give and take to keep the pace of the book steady. And the teenage brother, oh lordy, he was FUNNY. Audrey Carlan nailed the teenage boy humor. There were some real laugh out loud moments for me.

Do yourself a favor, if you're heading to the beach this summer or trying to keep warm this fall, buy this book. It's a fun, heartfelt, steamy read that hits all the right notes.

I loved Genevieve and Trent's story in this exciting new series! I cannot wait for the next book now! I think the concept of having a series take place in and around a yoga studio, named Lotus House is really fascinating! The information and the aspects of in this book are very interesting, and I would wager that yoga studios will see an increase in business because the author makes it seem really interesting, fun, exciting, spiritual, and even mystical!The information at the begining of each chapter about the yoga poses, and the chakras made the reader want to open themselves p to the experience! The characters of Genevieve and Trent were well rounded,down to earth, and very believable. Even though Trent is a player on and off the field, he starts to change right before our eyes when he sees all the responsibility, Genevieve is dealng with at such a young age, he also wants to have her for his own! He wants to be a better man and person for her and her family. The sexual chemistry between them is off the charts, and the sex scenes are hot, and meaningful to the couple I loved the street and all the shops that were in the story. It was like strolling back in time to a place where customers were appreciated, the food was homemade, peoples values were good and meant something, and the businesses welcomed the customers with open arms. This was a love story with a very sexy vibe, and I thought it was really neat that Trent called Genevieve Gumdrop
because of her glossy lips.

Wow. I couldn't put this book down!

First, I knew yoga was a wonderful practice but I didn't grasp the beauty of it until reading this book. It is amazing to me how Audrey took yoga and wicked hot sex and grouped them into a flowing novel.

Genevieve and Trent come from two different worlds. Genevieve the beautiful yogi and Trent the baseball player. Two different worlds that are weaved together through injury, love, lust, spirituality, and the desire from two people to make it work despite the obstacles.

I laughed and cried multiple times during this book. It holds deep rooted teachings of family values that are lost by so many these days. It holds hope for healing and hope for the future.

Let Audrey take you on a journey through her words. You won't regret it.
