Review ~ Furious Rush by S.C. Stephens

eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Publisher: Forever 

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...

My Opinion

This is another new author to me. I was drawn to Furious Rush because of the racing element. The fact it deals with bikes rather than cars--which is what I'm used to--made it more interesting. Also, the idea of a female competing alongside the men intrigued me. Since this generally doesn't happen in racing, it made me curious.

Furious Rush kept me hooked the whole way through. The emotion and excitement combined with the sport and romance were great. I could feel the sparks between Hayden and Kenzie, and the forbidden nature of their relationship added another dynamic that only fuelled the heat between them.

As for the story, once again the forbidden quality of street racing added to the excitement. I loved the racing and the romance. I did wish some of it could be sped up as a few parts dragged on, but that's only minor. I'm also assuming this is the start of a series because not everything it sewn up in the end.

Overall, a great read. I'll definitely be looking out for more by this author.
