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…
LOUISA’S 3 STAR REVIEW
No one can tell you that SC Stephens isn’t an amazing and captivating writer. She gave us the most loved book boyfriend ever, Kellan Kyle and the (almost) most hated character in Kiera. What I loved about this book was Kenzie. She was a bit of a bas ass…a girl who can hang with the boys in a male dominated sport. She does everything she can to help her family, even goes as far as to doing something she swore she would never do, but at all costs, she helps her family.
Hayden was a bad boy, yes. But my connection with him just wasn’t there. The relationship between then needed just a little more for me to stay up all night reading. I found myself putting the book down to do other things, my concentration on the book waning at times. When they were getting to know each other, I wanted a little more. They did have some great interactions that were heartfelt and at times SUPER hot…just want more of those deep connections.
But I always went back, I needed to know how these two would conquer the obstacles they faced as racers and as a couple. If you didn’t know this, this book has a bit of a cliffhanger – or some unanswered questions. I would assume that SC Stephens is busy writing the next book in this couples journey!
Blog Tour Q&A
1. So why choose to write about motorcycle racers specifically? I wanted a heart-of-gold bad boy who did something sexy for a living. Kellan already owned the rock star market, so I started looking around for other avenues for Hayden. My brother had just purchased a shiny, red street bike, and when I saw it, I couldn’t help but notice that the bike was super-sexy. I knew right then and there that bikes were going to be Hayden’s “thing.”
2. Would you ever write a sports romance about football, baseball, etc.? I think professional football could be interesting. The dramas between the wives, the egos of the players, and of course, the forbidden romance with the cheerleader… Sounds like fun!
3. Was it challenging to write about something completely new after spending so much time with the characters in the Thoughtless series? Yes and no. It was very freeing to be able to write new characters with no set-in-stone back stories, no previous timelines fixing them to a certain path. What I did find challenging however, was the endless possibilities. So many options can be overwhelming, and it took some time to narrow the scope into something more manageable.
3. What is one book you are dying to read but haven’t gotten the time to do so yet? Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. It’s literally sitting on my nightstand right now, but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. I’ve only heard good things about this entire series, and I can’t wait to start it.
