S.C. Stephens - Furious Rush review

I'm not going to lie, I was SUPER excited to get a chance for an early review copy of this book. (I've had this book on preorder since Sept 2015- when I first found out about it) I loved her Thoughtless series (OH KELLAN!) and was looking forward to this new series from her.  AND HOLY SEXUAL TENSION, BATMAN!  Whew!  This book is intense, action packed and seriously sexy. And I couldn't devour it fast enough! I loved Kellan Kyle but now seriously love Hayden Hayes, too.

I loved watching the layers get pulled back from both Kenzie and Hayden.   These two first see each other in very different circumstances but then they meet and learn they can't be friends.  Yet there is a pull between them they try to ignore.  Their story is intense, exhilarating, sweet, passionate and WHOA, THE FEELS!  S.C. Stephens does a great job of putting the reader in the world of motorcycle racing and the rush the riders get while doing it.  I found myself holding my breath at times waiting to see what was going to happen while they were flying on their bikes! 

At times I hated those around both Kenzie and Hayden for what they did or how they treated them.  It was maddening as some things played out and seriously frustrating.  But I loved how Kenzie and Hayden accepted each other because of the person they were, not because of circumstances or those around them.  They developed a friendship and got to know one another and watching their story unfold was delicious.  I don't want to tell you too much and give anything away because spoilers suck! Especially with this book!  Hayden isn't a rock star like Kellan but he's definitely a rock star in his own right! Be prepared to meet your next book boyfriend!

"Addicting and heart pounding--you won't be able to put it down until you've devoured every word."
--- Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author on Untamed 

The first in an emotion-fueled, New Adult series from the #1 bestselling author of the Thoughtless novels.

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...
