Publisher's Summary

Yoga instructor Genevieve Harper is a blond bombshell loaded down with responsibility and sacrifice. She makes the most out of raising her two siblings in the wake of their parents' tragic accident. At twenty-four, she doesn't have time to devote to a man...especially not the devastatingly handsome Trent Fox, who's known for being a "player" on and off the baseball field. Trent has the best hitting average in the league. Recently, he suffered a torn hamstring that takes him to the Lotus House Yoga Center for recuperation. There he meets the curvy, petite blonde with soulful black eyes and candy-coated glossy lips he'd like to do more to than kiss. He secures the flexible hottie for daily private lessons that ultimately show him how sensual the art of yoga can be.

Can love grow between a woman who's rooted in her life and a man who resists any notion of staying in one place?

If you're intrigued by the practice of yoga and desire a sensual, intensely erotic, and uniquely spiritual listen with characters capable of performing pretzel-like sexual acts, the Lotus House series is for you. Each of the seven books can be listened to as a standalone but are better listened to in order. No cliffhangers. Books are erotic romances written for mature audiences 18+.

5 star story

The story was a little hard to get into but, I was sucked in soon and wanted to binge listen as soon as the characters were introduced. I love Audrey Carlan stories, and the narration was on point

LOVE CONQUERS RESISTANCE

I love how the art of yoga is being written in this novel series. How yoga can be used sexually. Plus, Trent was a true Alpha male to Genevieve's femininity. They were the perfect yin and yang coexist. The story and the characters were fantastically written. I know that this series will be GREAT!!

Wonderful!

Genevieve was so out of the loop when it came to men, which made it so much fun. Trent being who he was made him be entertaining to. This book was amazing, I enjoyed it.

Loved this audio

I enjoyed this romance very much it was great!
I liked the bits and pieces of asanas and chakras at the beginning of each chapter, it was unique and added a bit of novelty.
Both Genevieve and Trent were likeable characters. It seemed like a whole universe separated them but as it turned out they valued the same virtues in life. The secondary characters were also great.
Resisting Roots was my first book by Audrey Carlan but I'm sure it wasn't the last. The writing was good. There wasn't too much drama, the characters were absolutely believable. Entertaining plot, great chemistry and steamy bedroom (or any surface at all, really) scenes, HEA.

I gave 4 stars in my review when I first read this book. But then I listened to the audio version and I fell in love with the story, thanks to the wonderful narration by Holly Chandler and Jacob Morgan. I loved both of their voices, they impersonated Genevieve and Trent perfectly. This audiobook became my go to whenever I need pure entertainment.

Boring

Unless you are into yoga and enjoy hearing detailed poses and chakra information etc, skip it.

Love Jacob Morgan

Love Jacob Morgan! The female voice got irritating after a while. I know she was trying to be all Zen, but too monotone.

Sweet, funny, and so much more!

5 Crazy Ass Must Read/Listen Stars!!!!!

Audrey Carlan has done it again! I starting reading her work with the Calendar Girls series and absolutely loved it. She quickly moved her way on to my Favorite Author List and with the start of this new series, she has just solidified her place and moved up her spot.
I love the fresh take on a sports romance . The yoga part was really refreshing and has made me miss the practice. I even gone so far as to make an appointment for refresher lessons.
I love Viv and Trent's characters. Their story was sweet, funny, exciting, and oh so HOT! I just love how Audrey was able to incorporate all the different aspects of the story and made it one hell of story. I can't wait to read more from her. Commence stalker mode!

Female narrator ruins it

I stopped listening in the middle of chapter 3. I couldn't stand the constant intake of breath the female narrator continues to do before speaking and her voice was so monotone! I tried to ignore it but it was just too irritating. The story wasn't too bad and I love Jacob Morgan narrating the male lead. I wish I could have got into this...if only he had a better partner!

Amazing

Really enjoy this book. Especially with intros to the chapter. Jacob Morgan is one my favorite narrators, didn’t care much for the female narrator but it was good none the less.
