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.

I’m in a dream like state after finishing Hook Shot. Lotus and Kenan’s story pulled every emotion out of me. I’m spent, drained and so satisfied with their story which I have been anticipating for so long. Kennedy Ryan delivered and exceeded my expectations by a million. That says a lot.

Hook Shot is a delicious slow burn and oh the burn and heat is so damn good. Just simmering beneath the surface whenever Lotus and Kenan are around another. It’s intense, it’s tantalizing and so right for Lotus and Kenan’s story. A sensual dance between the two of them from start to finish.
Their relationship is a work in progress. Kennedy Ryan succeeds in making their connection and chemistry palpable and undeniable through the conversations Lotus and Kenan share. They get to know and learn about another through conversation and taking their time. Exploring and enjoying one another. It’s beautifully written and explored. Their evolvement from friends to lovers takes time and I treasured and savored every moment of it. Their relationship has to take its time because of the past trauma that Lotus has to deal with and Kenan also has his challenges in the form of an ex wife and their teenage daughter.

Lotus is a fantastic heroine. She knocked the wind right out of me. She exhibits strength, fierceness and grace. Truly a queen. Kenan. Oh my lord. The big and grumpy Gladiator with so much heart and vulnerability. His daughter is his world. 
Lotus and Kenan are 2 unforgettable and memorable characters. They own Hook Shot. They make this story shine thanks to the magnificent prose and storytelling from Kennedy Ryan. Her words are out of this world. Liquid gold pouring off of my screen. Poetic and powerful in all its glory.

I’ve been in a Lotus and Kenan cocoon for the past couple of days while reading and it’s been a wonderful place to be. This is why I read. To escape. To be transported to another place. To feel and experience the power of written words. Hook Shot delivered on all accounts and so much more. I couldn’t ask for more.
