Furious Rushby S.C. Stephens
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 antagonised 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.
Fuelled 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 . . .
Manda's 2 Star Review
This one just wasn't for me. I am a huge fan of this author and her writing style but this one just didn't catch me. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline in the beginning but I just couldn't really fall into the story. I loved the idea of Mackenzie being this strong woman determined to make it in a man dominated sport, but as the book moved forward I felt like she lost some of her fire. Hayden pushed her to be a better racer but I just felt like she lost a bit of her fire. I didn't really feel the strong romantic connection between Hayden and Mackenzie. They made each other better racers but I just didn't really feel the long term love connection. The biggest reason this one didn't fit for me was the end. The other stuff I was ok with but the end really confused me. There didn't seem to be a clear ending. For Mackenzie everything was still up in the air. She didn't really get any resolutions to her problem. There was no "cliffhanger" but her life seemed to still be in chaos. This was not listed as a series so I assumed it was a stand-alone however I just feel like alot is unresolved.
