FURIOUS RUSH { blog tour } by S.C. Stephens


Forever | August 23, 2016 | New AdultAdd to Goodreads

The first in an emotion-fueled, New Adult series from the #1 bestselling author of the Thoughtless novels!

Too fast, too furious—and way too hot to handle…

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 an 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...

{ review } .

I truly loved the story of Hayden and Kenzie. I loved Kenzie--she's a tomboy, a bike racer, and she has fierce ties to the bike community. Add to the mix a sexual tension with the one person she's not supposed to have any contact with...

Or course, that little difficulty is only minor compared to everything else that is going to happen in Ms. Cox's world.

I loved every moment of this book -- but I felt incredibly jilted at the end! I loved the love, loved the connection between Hayden and Kenzie, and loved his (eventual) support of her....but I wanted things to be tied up a little prettier. My only hope, and well, assumption, is that it will play out throughout the series...I mean, this is a series, right? The tag says FURIOUS RUSH was book one, but it's not connected anywhere, and with the way publishing houses work... I sure hope the next book gets released!
