About DANGEROUS RUSH

Feeling the rush comes with a price…

Mackenzie Cox has lost everything—except Hayden Hayes. With Kenzie’s racing career over, and her family no longer speaking to her, Hayden has been her rock, as she tries to pick up the pieces of what was once her life.

But when Hayden’s racing team hires his beautiful ex-girlfriend, Felicia, to be their new hotshot rider, Kenzie and Hayden’s seemingly solid relationship begins to crack. Kenzie can only watch from the sidelines, as Felicia lives the life she was forced to leave behind, and as tension begins to build between Hayden and Kenzie, she wonders if Hayden isn’t the man she once knew.

Review

I am going to start off by saying that I don’t like SC Stephens. Not at all. Why?? Because you makes me feel for the characters. She makes me grow attached to them like they are my own feelings and makes me want more for them. Throughout this whole book, I was thinking off all the ways things could go wrong and how frustrated I was because they didn’t go the way why I like. But I liked that. I like being emotionally attached to the story and the characters because then when they get to the end of the story it’s more satisfying.

Hayden is stuck in between a rock and a hard place. He wants what’s best for Kenzie but feels guilty that she gave up her dream for getting him. Things don’t get easier when his past (Felicia) comes storming back wanting to return to get back what she lost. He knows he loves and wants Kenzie, but there is a part of him that is stuck with Felicia that he can’t seem to let go completely. To me, he seems like a little boy lost in the world that is just trying to find his way. And we get to see him do that.

Kenzie, man I feel for this girl on so many levels. She is isolated from her family, no job, a boyfriend who keeps lying to her. It’s a surprise that she doesn’t go crazy. But it’s a true testament to her character. How strong she is. Her father, man did I want to beat him something fierce, turns the whole world against her all just because he doesn’t like Hayden. And then adds guilt to it. If it were me I would have cut him out of my life because no one needs poison like that, but it’s hard to do that when he’s the only parent she has. I love the strength of her character and how she is able to not lose it when she loses everything. It shines again when she fights for what she wants and doesn’t settle for anything less. That big scene between her and father towards the end proves everything and is probably my favorite in the book.

While there were times that I was nervous/anxious about what was going to happen, I always knew that it would end with a HEA (and no I didn’t cheat to make sure). Stephens has always given me that HEA that I need in a book even if it’s not the way that I expect it. This book is no exception to that. There are going to be times that you won’t like Hayden and some of the decisions that he makes, but I did end up loving him.

Rating: A


 

Don’t miss the first book in the RUSH series!

 

Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father’s talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team’s newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie’s skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she’s racing against Hayden.

As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into and intense—and strictly forbidden—attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind…

Top 5 books coming out in June

#5 – The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely
Out: 6/23

There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date. Not those…I mean these… “knock me up.”

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and wild — and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.

I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.
Right?

****
There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — “your place or mine?”

When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place — as well as any position — I can’t refuse. Besides, I’ve got my own reasons to take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.

There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, any where, any night? Except . . . what if I do?


#4 – Until it Fades by KA Tucker
Out: 6/27

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania: population two thousand outside of tourist season.

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed attempt at a relationship, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has saved: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works.

For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. What begins as an immediate friendship quickly turns into something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something that Catherine is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?

#3 – Dangerous Rush by SC Stephens
Out: 6/13

Feeling the rush comes with a price…

Mackenzie Cox has lost everything—except Hayden Hayes. With Kenzie’s racing career over, and her family no longer speaking to her, Hayden has been her rock, as she tries to pick up the pieces of what was once her life.

But when Hayden’s racing team hires his beautiful ex-girlfriend, Felicia, to be their new hotshot rider, Kenzie and Hayden’s seemingly solid relationship begins to crack. Kenzie can only watch from the sidelines, as Felicia lives the life she was forced to leave behind, and as tension begins to build between Hayden and Kenzie, she wonders if Hayden isn’t the man she once knew.


#2 – The Catch by K. Bromberg
Out: 6/29

After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.
But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.
With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.
He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

#1 – Fighting with Honor by KC Lynn
Out: 6/2

Once a man pledges his honor to his country, that sacrifice is embedded in his soul forever. For years he’s trained to fight, kill, and do whatever necessary to protect his country and its freedom, even if it means giving his own life.

He becomes more of a machine than human—one that’s built to destroy the enemy.

When it’s time to turn in his weapons, he never forgets the skills he learned. Never forgets the smell of death or feel of a rifle in his hands. The same hands that one day cradle his baby girl and caress the skin of his beautiful wife.

If anything or anyone ever tried to steal away the family he has vowed to love and protect, may God have mercy on their soul.

Other books coming out this month are Hating You/Dating You by Christina Lauren (6/6), Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige (6/13), Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich (6/20), The Sergeant’s Promise by K. Langston (6/23)

Review: ‘Furious Rush’ by SC Stephens – modern day Romeo Juliet that takes place at the race track

furious rush

Format: e-book, paperback
Format read: e-book arc from Netgalley
Rating: 18+ sexual content, language
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26097165-furious-rush?from_search=true

Enter into the world of fast motorcycles, racing, feuding families, and forbidden love. In a modern day version of Romeo and Juliet, we follow Kenzie Cox, a female motorcyclist trying to make a name for herself outside her father’s shadow in a man’s game. Enter Hayden Hayes, the rival working for the family that she grew up hating. She knows that she should stay away from him but the connection that they have won’t sever, but instead gets stronger with each meeting.

Oh the tension between Hayden and Kenzie. It was so thick that you could feel it as if you were one of the characters. SC Stephens is no stranger to writing forbidden love between characters, having done successfully in the Thoughtless series. And like that book, we have to watch the two main characters try and deny their attraction, but we all know that it won’t happen.

Let’s take a minute and talk about her father. Ok, maybe more than a minute because this guy made me so mad that I wanted to throttle him. On the surface, you would think that he’s just being tough on his daughter because she chose a tough career and that she has to work twice as hard because everyone is going to be counting her out. But as we see more of their interactions, I felt so bad for Kenzie. She was saddled with trying to solve all of her father’s problems and he was so consumed with his life, that he didn’t care about how it was affecting her. Oh and the way that it ended with them?? OMG! I was so mad that I almost wanted to stop reading because I was fuming. As I was reading what he wanted, I used some choice words to describe him and was nervous about what Kenzie was going to do. Because like any child, she just wanted her father’s love and approval.

Back to the best part of the story. That is Kenzie and Hayden’s relationship. They are that couple that makes you believe that they really were made for one another. No matter how much they try to fight it, there is a connection there and they are willing to risk everything for one another. And that connection? Let me tell you, it’s just like them racing bikes. It goes from 0 to 100 in no time flat because that’s the world that they live in.

The ending made me nervous on so many levels. When I reached a certain point in the story, I needed to keep reading to find out what was going to happen because I was nervous that it wouldn’t end the way that I wanted it to. And when you think that it’s done, it’s not. There is a bit of a surprise at the end that made me wonder if there is going to be another book. It ended in a way where it could be a stand-alone but there is definitely room for a second book.

Me, I hope for the latter.

Book of the Week – ‘Furious Rush’ by SC Stephens

furious rush

Enter into a world with fast motorcycles, rival teams, and two people trying to make a name for themselves. Kenzie and Hayden are competing against each other, trying to prove that they have what it takes, but are thrusted into a feud that involves her father and his boss. Stuck in the middle of what they want, and making their sides happy, they are forced to make bold decisions and risk everything in the chance of falling in love.

If you have read the Thoughtless series by Stephens, then you know that she knows how to write angst that is going to have you angsting right alongside with them. Her stories have levels upon levels that it makes it look like an onion is leveled like an apple. The characters are challenged in ways that still exist today and you would be hard-pressed to not relate to at least one of the characters in the story.

Here is the synopsis:

For Mackenzie Cox, racing motorcycles is in her blood. Born into a family legacy, she’s determined to show the world that she has inherited her father’s talent in this male-dominated sport. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team’s newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Hayden, exceedingly arrogant and outrageously attractive, immediately gets under Kenzie’s skin and she can’t help but be distracted.

As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense – and strictly forbidden – attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie needs a win, and she also needs to stay away from Hayden. Unfortunately for her though, one thing has become all too clear: she can’t.

Fueled by passion, driven by desire, Hayden and Mackenzie both want to win more than anything else. Except for, maybe, each other. But anger, jealousy and extreme competitiveness aren’t their only obstacles . . .

You can buy the book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and iBooks.
