Release Day: Hook Shot

I have to start this post with just how AMAZING Kennedy is. Every book I’ve read of hers has completely consumed me. Now, I know that happens a lot, but her books are a whole new level of consumption. I literally had to set an alarm on my phone so I wouldn’t read all night. That’s just how amazing she is. She knows how to pull every single heart string. All of her books are amazing, but this might be my favorite yet. Although, I may say that after reading each one. Every book is so unique. Be prepared to fall in love with Kenan and Lotus even more than you thought you might!

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.

My Review

SWEET BABY JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This book was even more than I had ever hoped it would be! Kennedy is such a genius when it comes to words. There’s just no one word to describe how amazing her writing is; it is magnificent, life-changing, inspirational, hell, it’s almost religious. I was so sad that I had to read this book all chopped up, I felt like this is a book that I needed to read on a beautiful sunny and lazy day. I want to re-read this book this summer when I can just sit and let the sun and words soak in.

Back to the masterpiece at hand. Seeing the build up between Lotus and Keenan in the previous books was such a sight to see. We knew there was something lurking around those corners and we knew it was going to be explosive. I had no idea that these two would be like rays of sun. You just get pulled in and you never want to leave it! The amount of power that Keenan and Lotus had between them was so powerful, that they couldn’t have stayed away if they tried. When Lotus tried to stay away, it was pretty laughable. I also loved how determined Keenan was to win over Lotus, he stepped way out of his comfort zone for him. Really, I think they both did. One might think that they each gave up a little bit of themselves to be with each other, but it’s more like they transformed into something even greater. The bond between them was so hot too! That is another one of the beautiful things about Kennedy’s writing, it’s such an art that you don’t shy away from anything. The love making between Keenan and Lotus was just as artful as the rest of the book. It took them to such a beautiful place. You also have these added touches of their past and the little touches of voodoo, it’s all just magical and thought provoking. You are really transformed to another place and taken on this amazing ride.

Now, one of the big things in writing for me are the secondary characters. I truly loved the editions of Billie, Yari, Chase, JP, Simone and Bridget! They created the perfect amount of drama and insight to the story. Speaking of drama, I loved how much of it there was! Of course, it was tastefully done, but it was just the perfect amount. We got a few good runs down the rollercoaster with them too! The amount of emotions that all of these characters evoked was enormous. Each one of these secondary characters was so significant and emotion provoking, that it was really just next level!

I don’t really know how much more I can say about this book without giving too much away. Everything Kennedy does is amazing. Every time I think I finally have a favorite, the next book makes me think the same thing. The way she writes is just so beautiful and inspiring. She has the best female characters too! Each one of her women make you want to be a better woman. And every one of these kind and understanding man makes you want the same. You truly feel like you are in their world and living their lives when you read her work. You really can’t ask for more. If it were possible this book would get a 10!
