A deeply emotional standalone romance set in the worlds of professional basketball and high fashion.
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.
I. 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.

Rosa's rating: 5 iScream Cones!
"One kiss," I agree, like I wasn't about to give him the cow, the milk, and the whole damn farm."
I know I've probably said this before, but this is my favorite book in the series...until the next one. I can't get enough of Kennedy Ryan's ballers. Nor can I get enough of her amazing female characters. She does such an excellent job of shining a light on tough subjects in a way that pulls my heartstrings and opens my eyes. She brings awareness and all the feels.
Kenan has enough to deal with in his life, the last thing he needs is to risk everything again. He's been through hell in his marriage and in the media. Every bad thing that he wants to forget is forever available at the click of a button for anyone to see...even his daughter. He can't turn back time or shelter her from the storm, but he wishes he could.
Lotus is my latest girl crush. I adore her sass and admire her strength. She's trying to ignore Kenan, he's the last thing she needs in her life. But, her body doesn't agree. It takes notice every time he ends up in the same room with her. And, by the way, why does that keep happening? She tries to avoid him like the plague because she knows she won't be able to resist him.
"Damn. He should never be allowed to wear white. The contrast with his skin...it's too much. It should be outlawed. I'm already mentally drafting my letter to Congress."
This story has everything from A-Z. Attraction. Basketball. Betrayal. Crazy. Danger. Fear. Fashion. Love. Laughter. Lust. Lies. Loss. Music. Pain. Passion. Tragedy. Zippers. I devoured this beautiful tale, loving every journey the author took me on as she weaved her web of word magic. Hook Shot has earned a spot on my #Favorites shelf, right next to the others in the Hoops series. I'm not sure if there will be more, but I met some amazing support characters that I'd love to spend more time with. The line forms here...
