Review: Furious Rush by S.C. Stephens

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...

Daughter of legendary motorcycle racer Jordan Cox, owner of Cox Racing, is finally racing in the big leagues. This has been her life mission to prove to the world, her father, and even herself that she can compete to win in a male-dominated sport and put Cox Racing back on the map. Sadly, things take too many turns for the worse and Mackenzie has to decide was is really worth fighting for.

Ummm…. I am terribly confused about my feelings for this book that I decided to basically stay in neutral territory with 3 stars. There are so many highs and lows of this book that it will take too long to cover them all. Let’s start with the basics.

The story started out slow and finally picked up at the 60% mark. I honestly skimmed through most of it and still understood exactly was going on. This book is stated as a standalone but even as Hayden will tell you “do not believe everything you hear’’. You will understand when you hit the end of the book. Miss Stephens how could you just drop a bomb like that and expect us to leave it alone! I can’t even describe the need I have for the next book just to know what is going on.

The main characters, Mackenzie and Hayden, I kind of loved and hated. Kenzie has so much on her plate and is too stubborn to ask for help. She feels like she has too much to prove to let anyone let alone live her life. The book starts off with her best friend dragging her out of bed and ruining her routine. I get that athletes have a strict routine to follow but even they need to blow off steam. Especially with a parent like hers. She learned to stand up for what she wanted and do what made her feel alive: racing- with a little help from Hayden. Oh, sweet and sexy Hayden is everything you want in a reformed bad-boy. I enjoyed reading about him and would have loved him more if he wasn’t so damn shady! He never could tell the truth even when things got serious with Kenzie.

Events that took place all boiled down to certain people and their grudges they could not let go of. The decisions certain friends made were only self-serving even if they had the best interest. The ban and the straight out rules were a little extreme even in rivalry. Overall, I enjoyed the book but had my feelings all over the place.

I was gifted a copy of this novel from the JeepDIva in exchange for an honest review.
