Blurb : Perfect for fans of Katy Evans and Monica Murphy, Sarah Robinson’s blistering-hot series debut introduces the Kavanagh brothers—mixed martial arts fighters who work hard, play hard, and love with all their hearts.As one of the big names at his family’s gym, Legends, MMA star Rory Kavanagh is used to being in the spotlight—until a gruesome leg injury knocks him out of the cage. Rory is left feeling sidelined in more ways than one, battling the inner demons that come with losing the one shot at his dreams. Then Clare walks into his life and gives him a new dream: winning her heart. There aren’t many new faces in Woodlawn these days, but this tough, beautiful stranger makes Rory want to get his life back into fighting shape.Clare Ivers doesn’t think she’ll be able to tell anyone what really brought her to the close-knit Bronx neighborhood where she just started bartending. But her life’s on pause and her past is catching up fast, try as she might to move on—with new friends, steady work, and a chiseled alpha male trying to get her attention. Even though Rory’s more than a little intense, she can’t deny that her heart beats faster when he looks at her with those soulful silver eyes. Clare thought she was done with love, but Rory might just be man enough to show her she thought wrong.
Review : What can I say? I am a sucker for books about boxing and about Irish men! So this book had right from the beginning pretty good changes to be enjoyed.And this is also what I did! It’s obvious that the author had an idea of a book dealing with different kind of topics.
In general it works pretty well. Sometimes I just wished to get more information …to be able to dip deeper into parts of the story. I desperately want to know more about the characters or other aspects as the story and especially some lines are awesome! For this reasons I can only rate this story with 3 stars. The characters in combination with each other are awesome -it was fun to be around them!
Also the writing style was pretty good. Sometimes I just thought that story might work out even better told by a first-person narrator which would also solve the problem about “getting more information”.
There are so many ties which get tied together at the end, but if this really talented author had tied them together even tighter, this would have been a 5 Stars-read! Still I am looking forward to read the second book of this series.
