Series: Kavanagh Legends #2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
His family’s gym has produced a roster of mixed martial arts legends, but so far Kieran Kavanagh hasn’t followed in their footsteps. After a brawl lands him in jail, Kieran is assigned to work at a center for at-risk youth. Though given a second chance, Kieran’s simply going through the motions—until he meets one very special kid, Shea Doherty, and falls hard for her very beautiful, very grown-up big sister, Fiona. The trouble is, Kieran’s best opening moves are getting him nowhere fast.
Fiona Doherty has too many responsibilities to fool around, especially now that she has custody of Shea. Sure, she’d love to find a devoted partner. But she won’t jeopardize her sister’s happiness—or risk revealing her tortured past—on a love-’em-and-leave-’em type of guy like Kieran . . . so it’s up to him to prove her wrong. As Fiona spends more time with Kieran, she starts to see a softer side of the reckless warrior. Now she must admit that when it comes to the possibility of real love, well . . . there’s a fighting chance.
This is book 2 in the Kavanagh Legends series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading these in order.
Kieran and Fiona meet when he goes into her shop to buy his mother flowers. Then they end up seeing one another several times over the next few days. She is just so pretty, and makes his heart race.
Fiona has no time to date or focus on men. She has responsibilities that most men, and even women would never take on. Kieran is a temptation for her. Is it right to resist? Or is he the reason it all feels so right?
This was such a surprisingly great story. I knew I would love it, this series is just terrific. I was excited and pleased with the subjects in the book. The banter is sexy and the characters are hot!
