Resisting Roots (Lotus House #1)

Resisting Roots is the first title in a new series by Audrey Carlan and I’m hooked. The pacing is fast, the connection is steamy, and the yoga is zen.
The backdrop: The Lotus House Yoga Center.
The main characters: Meet Genevieve (Viv) Harper, a yoga teacher/hair stylist trying to make ends meet while raising her younger brother and sister. As for our male lead? Trent Fox is an injured professional baseball player who never thought about settling down with one woman.
Thank goodness Trent’s agent forces him to sign up for yoga classes at the Lotus House where Viv teaches. Not only does the yoga help heal Trent’s torn hamstring, it helps to center him so he can realize the love of his life is right in front of him. But these two resist the coupling even though it seems the universe is working overtime to bring them together.
My own thoughts had been far from decent. A good yoga teacher should be more worries about the client and helping him heal physically and emotionally from whatever ails him, not imagining doing the naked pretzel in a private room. I added a mental reminder to meditate on this issue later with Dara, our resident meditation guru at the Lotus House. She’d be able to help me find a sense of clarity when my hormones were going wacky over one ridiculously hot male client.
