Furious Rush by SC Stephens • FMR REVIEW

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 by: Christina 

I was excited when I found out that S.C. Stephens was having another book out and did not hesitate wanting to read more of her works after all she created my top book boyfriend in the Thoughtless Series; however, I am somewhat torn on how I feel about this novel. The main reason being is that I'm not exactly not sure if this will be a series (which I am hoping it is after that cliffy-like ending we were left with) so if she continues to write more I see this book as a starter of sorts and has set up where it can led to more intense things like I have witness in her other books. 

Hayden Hayes is a sexy, cocky, motorcycle racer that the ladies cannot help but swoon over but underneath his arrogant personalities he has a side that he does not show often thanks to his past history growing up. He presents himself to be mysterious and an all knowing man. 

Mackenzie Cox has racing in her blood. Daughter of a legend she has always been brought up in that world and is expected to continue the family legacy. Being a female racer she has a challenging time proving her worth in a supposed men's sport and is determine to prove she is the best. With that said to get to that goal everything needs to be done in a certain way when it comes to Cox's Racing. 

I've never raced that well before, and I don't think you have either. We're magic together.

This was just a 3.5 stars for me. It had many things I could not get into or let go off. Although the details were great it felt a bit too much making the the story dragged here and there. A positive of the read was the inevitable chemistry that we get between Mackenzie and Hayden. Racing on highly competitive teams (and being enemies as well) it was stated early on that they cannot fraternized with each other. Regardless on how much they work well when they train together it would be the ultimate betrayal if they were ever caught. Zero contact was their primary rule. That alone had me wanting more for them after seeing the constant angst and competitiveness between the two of them. 

Although this was just an ok read for I would definitely be down to read more if this does end up being a series. Keeping fingers crossed that we get another book and that the author can pull greatness for this storyline.

3.5 Stars
