This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Hailed by Rachel Van Dyken as “equal parts sexy, intense, and emotional,” Sarah Robinson’s blistering-hot series debut introduces the Kavanagh brothers—mixed martial arts fighters who work hard, play hard, and love with all their hearts.
As one of the big names at his family’s gym, Legends, MMA star Rory Kavanagh is used to being in the spotlight—until a gruesome leg injury knocks him out of the cage. Rory is left feeling sidelined in more ways than one, battling the inner demons that come with losing the one shot at his dreams. Then Clare walks into his life and gives him a new dream: winning her heart. There aren’t many new faces in Woodlawn these days, but this tough, beautiful stranger makes Rory want to get his life back into fighting shape.
Clare Ivers doesn’t think she’ll be able to tell anyone what really brought her to the close-knit Bronx neighborhood where she just started bartending. But her life’s on pause and her past is catching up fast, try as she might to move on—with new friends, steady work, and a chiseled alpha male trying to get her attention. Even though Rory’s more than a little intense, she can’t deny that her heart beats faster when he looks at her with those soulful silver eyes. Clare thought she was done with love, but Rory might just be man enough to show her she thought wrong.

This is the fifth book by sarah Robinson I have read, her books have all been easy suspenseful and full of passion. So far this one steals the cake!!

The flow of this book had me wanting to know more and what the characters would do or act. Definitely going to be rereading this!!
Favorite quote: "His sudden movement and fierce stare frightened her, yet did something else to her at the same time." ' "Am I the rock? Or the hard place?" "Hell if I know," she said with a smirk, her anger subsiding as he teased her'
I Enjoyed This Book Immensely
I received a free copy of this book from the author on Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
Rory and Claire, what a cute, exciting couple. I enjoyed this book immensely. There was their budding romance and how wonderful Rory was with Claire; Rory's family dynamic's; Claire's secrets; animal rescue and romance oh yes and MMA. What else could have been put into this book? I haven't a clue, but it was great fun to read.
I would recommend this book to contemporary romance reader's and those who enjoy sports/romance books.
This book did not gave a cliff hanging ending, but I see this as a possible series with all the great supporting characters
This is the first book by Sarah Robinson that I've had the pleasure to read and it will not be my last. I loved every character in this new series and the world she's built in the Kavanagh Legends that has some of the most alpha men I've read in a while.
When Rory and Clare meet Rory is at his lowest point in life. It's been a year since the MMA fight that ended his career and he's become dependent on the drugs and alcohol he uses to deaden the pain and help him forget. Clare is the first light he's seen in a year of darkness and self pity.
This story is about a man who finds the one thing in life he didn't know was missing and realizing that to have it he had to find the man he was before everything changed. And a woman that is runnin from a tragedy and years of abuse to find that she is strong enough to build the life she's dreamed of and that there's a difference in the safe alpha man Rory is and the controlling abusive man of her past.
The strength and love of family is very prominent in this book add to it some blood tingling romance and courting and you have a awesome love story. Rory Kavanagh is so hot and sexy and alpha that it just poured out of him that hes totally sigh worthy. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to read the next book.
