Review: Furious Rush by S.C Stephens

SynopsisToo 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...

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Review:I want to start off this review by saying that Furious Rush was the first book I have read by this author. I was constantly hearing nothing but praise for S.C Stephens and her Thoughtless series, that I was extremely excited to read this one. 

With that being said I was really disappointed after finishing this story. I had high expectations going in and I felt like they were not being met by this #1 Bestselling author. It took me a while to get into this story because I found it to be overly detailed and repetitive at times and it left me extremely bored. I found myself constantly having to put this book down and having to talk myself into not give up on it and Im glad that I didn't. Towards the last 40 % of this book it started to pick up and I found myself enjoying it. I was very intrigued with the racing aspect of this story and I have to admit that I loved the illegal racing parts more than the legal ones. I loved Hayden and Kenzie!!! Their chemistry was off the charts!! It almost felt like a modern day Romeo and Juliet and I adored everything about them. 

In my opinion this story had a lot of potential, but S.C Stephens failed to deliver a 5 star read. I'm even contemplating on removing the Thoughtless series off of my TBR but everyone deserves a second chance right? If I do decide to give this author another chance I will do so without having any expectations going in.
