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.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

The amount of Alpha male this book threw in front of me was a bit overwhelming. I really enjoyed reading the book. I was really entertained with Clare’s suspicious past and Rory’s self destruction and their journey to the road of happiness and finding someone to depend on and love with all the scars they have.
I am also impressed with the strength of this books supporting characters. And the fact that this is also family centered is what keeps me on the edge of waiting for the next book. I am really curious about Clare’s employer though. That was the only thing that was bothering me when I got to the end of the book. I really wanted to know the deepest history the man has and well, why he’s an ass. Maybe it was in the book and I just missed the meaning behind the words they use to describe him but, he is quiet interesting. Also, as for Rory being self destructive, it was the main reason why I didn’t like him the first parts of the book. Yeah he was acting all caveman towards Clare but I always thought “meh. can’t wait for him to actually develop himself” and then he progressed and I am happy with the end results.
My first book from the author, Sarah Robinson, and I was really satisfied. 4 stars!
