Review: Becoming a Legend (Kavanagh Legends #3) by Sarah Robinson
Title: Becoming a Legend
From the author of Saving a Legend (“A deep and moving story about family, acceptance, and love.”—Katy Evans) comes another smoldering MMA romance featuring the Kavanagh brothers, the chiseled alpha males whose real legacy is love.
Kane Kavanagh has always had one goal: being the best mixed martial arts fighter alive. With the MMA National Championships in Las Vegas fast approaching, the man they call “Killer” has no intention of letting anyone or anything get in his way. Somehow, though, a feisty opponent has slipped beneath his guard—and stolen his heart. Fiery and passionate, Nora Hannigan is harder to pin down than any rival Kane has faced in the ring. And she isn’t afraid to tell Kane that she wants nothing to do with him.
With her best friend about to marry into the Kavanagh family, Nora has been resisting Kane’s shameless attempts at flirting for months. But after their undeniable chemistry finally takes over, leading to the hottest night of Nora’s life, she’s running scared. There’s a lot about her life Kane doesn’t know, and she won’t be responsible for ending his career. Now Kane’s out to prove that he’s ready for a commitment by winning her heart—and he’s never lost a fight.

I received this book for free from the Publisher or Author in exchange for an honest review, or I purchased it with my own funds. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Time for Nora and Kane story with Becoming a Legend! To tell the truth, when Nora was introduced in the previous book, I didn’t think much of her. She wasn’t a bad character, she just didn’t stand out much for me. Knowing what I know now, I realize I should have paid better attention to her. Now on the other hand, Kane was definitely on my radar. I did at first think he was a total jerk for taking his twin’s fighting name while he was in jail. Now that I know he story, his thoughts and feeling of being the middle child, yeah okay I get it. The two of them together, naughty-naughty! A little early booty call that becomes thankfully something more. The story isn’t without it flaws and does have some predictable consequences however, their HEA, as well as the bonus treat of Kieran and Fiona continuing HEA more than made up for it.
Now as much as I enjoy the main characters going through their trials to finally get their HEA, what really sells this series for me are the secondary Kavanaghs. I absolutely love how the author keeps incorporating the whole family in the story. It cements the series and give us readers the chance to spend more time with past characters we fell in love with when we read their stories. Oh a side note: Whoa Seamus! Still loving him but YIKES! Now I know how tough (and scary!) of a man he can be.
Becoming a Legend was a nice addition to the series. My heart still cries out that the first in the series was still the best however, every entry since still makes for a great bonus read. With just the right amount of heat, action and love. Ms. Robinson’s Kavanagh Legends series is going to grab you and keep you coming back for more. Readers are going to love it!
