Saving a Legend the second book in the Kavanagh Legend series was an awesome read. Like the first book I really loved me some Kavanagh men. And like his older brother Rory from book 1, Kieran stole my heart. He made mistakes in his past but he was an amazing man. And when he met Fiona there was no other woman for him.

Saving A Legend is book two in the Kavanagh Legends series by Sarah Robinson. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, Random House Publishing Group, and by the author.

In this second book, we meet Kieran Kavanagh. Kieran is half of the set of twins, his brother being Kane. Kieran and Kane are part of the famous Kavanagh family, five brothers, four of which either help to run or fight in the family owned MMA gym. Kieran showed all the promise of being

I can say that this series is getting better and better...
The Kavanagh family has 5 boys and a... girl!!!! So, i think that we will live many adventures with them!!! Especially the boys are getting all the time on troubles, but with the right woman beside them, everything can be fixed!!! Right???

I liked the first book about Rory Kavanagh and his Clare, but the second story captivated me even more...
This is the story of Keiran Kavanagh, his Fiona and his Shea!!!!

As I have mentioned in the past, I love when an author gives us specific insight into the book we are about to read. When I see a front enclosure from the writer addressing the subject matter or a specific character, I know special attention was given...and it meant more than just research for the author and story. Sarah Robinson took the time to give us the insight of what it took to do a realistic portrayal of an older sister coping with r

Saving a Legend is the second book in the Kavanagh Legends Series. The Kavanagh Family is a family full of lovers and fighters.

Audiobook Review. This could have easily been a 5 star for me, except for the heroine's hypocrisy. The plot was strong, characters well established, detailed, dynamic, and relatable for their flawed humanity. The heroes were solid throughout the story but at the very end, Fiona does something that really pisses me off and that seems to go against who I thought I'd gotten to know during the telling. Kieran made some big mistakes and is trying to find his way. He finds not only love, but an apprec ...more

I really enjoyed Saving a Legend I adore Kieran and Fiona together and the quick bond that forms between Kieran and Shea tugged at my heartstrings, I love little Shea.

I enjoyed the pace of their relationship Kieran sets his sights on Fiona and he is determined to get his "flower girl" but Fiona is hiding something and she is scared to let Kieren get to close. When these two get together they are sizzling.

I loved the banter between the brothers hilarious especially Kane and Quinn and I loved

Great story for those who like their stories super sweet and super safe. At times I found myself stretching my ability to believe - and not in a typically fun, Alexa Riley type way either! AR type short, smutty books are expected to be OTT with far-fetched storylines, designed to make you roll your eyes but have fun with.

Amazing. Kieran is home from jail and two days later meets his flower girl, Fiona. Fiona's little sister, Shea, is adorable and Fiona does a great job raising her. They both have pasts that they don't want to reveal to each other, and of course, the delay in that causes drama and heartbreak. Kieran's family is so supportive of not only their son, but also Fiona and Shea. There's plenty of sexy scenes too. What Kieran sacrifices for Fiona...sigh... Can't wait for t

Thank you Loveswept and NetGalley for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.

We get a glimpse about all the Kavanagh brothers in the first book, Breaking a Legendexcept for one. Just like Rory, Kieran Kavanagh is a former MMA fighter and was imprisoned for 2 years. He was involved on a fight and it surely brought disappointment to his family. Now that he's out, he wants to rebuild himself and start anew by working on a youth center. Here, he meets Shea, a young girl whom he grew fond

It’s official! I love the Kavanagh family! I want them to adopt me and make me one of them!

Saving a Legend is the second story of the five Kavanagh brothers and focuses on Kieran. Kieran has just been released from jail and is looking to change his life around.

“Everything was different about him now. He was different.”

From the first moment he laid eyes on Fiona, aka Flower Girl, he was smitten. And the first day he met Shea, Fiona’s little sister who has autism, he was hooked. I absolutely love

Beta reader, and husband.... but I'm being 100% honest when I say this book is fantastic. I'm more and more amazed that this wonderful author and woman agreed to marry me because she is so out of my league. Reading an early copy of this book is just another reminder of how lucky I am, how talented she is, and how much the world is going to love it. Do yourself a favor and go preorder or buy this book immediately. Just do it.

I'm gonna be honest here and tell you that when I first found out that part of the story-line contained a child with Autism, I was really skeptical about reading it. I knew that if Sarah Robinson didn't get this story right I would probably explode all over social media.

Autism Spectrum Disorder is my life. My niece was born with two birth defects that led her to be developmentally delayed and therefore on the Spectrum. She is my life. She is my breath. She is everything. So the thought of this s

I think that it is wise for me to avoid this type of genre for the moment. I read the first book and although there was some drama to it is was enjoyable.

This is just me and my personal opinion.

This is different I love the Hero Kieran, through the mistakes that he made he became a better man and he was great with kids and tried to help where he could. It shows the difficulties some have after being released from prison and how parents and loved ones deal with it.

I started the series with book two. Luckily for me it can be read as a stand alone. I can't wait to read Rory's story now.
Kieran has made some dumb choices and paid for them. Meeting Fiona might have been the turning point in his life. It takes some persuading to get Fiona to even give him the time of day. After Kieran meets Fiona's sister, he realizes if they team up on her that she'll break sooner. This is a great book about second chances.

I am in LOVE with Kieran Kavanaugh and it's awesome!! <3 <3

An inconsequential brawl landed Kieran in jail, and now he has being assigned to work at a center for at-risk youth. He needs this second chance at life to win back the trust of his family and get his family back on track. There he meets a very special kid, Shea Doherty and is mesmerized by her very beautiful sister/ guardian Fiona Doherty.

*ARC received from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review*

I would say I liked this book as much as the 1st. This one is about Kieran, who just got out of prison and falls for Fiona, who is the legal guardian of her 8 yr old autistic sister. Their romance was veryyyyyy fast, even with Fiona being hesitant and distant. Most of their romance takes place within a 2 week period. The speed didn't really work for me. But on the flip side, they both had a secret they were hiding from one another an

His redemption story. Her survival story. Their love story.

I absolutely fell in love with Breaking a Legend, and while book 2 is a totally separate standalone, Saving a Legend lives up to its predecessor in every way. I loved the vibrant Kavanagh family in Breaking a Legend, but in this book, even more so. With the addition of little Shea, a true family centers around raising this little girl and helping her. Everything Fiona went through and sacrificed for her sister made me love her so much

***ARC Provided by the Publisher and NetGalley***

I am not sure if I have ever read a book with a more annoying hero and heroine combination. They seemed to aggravate and heighten each other's faults and make them worse people when they were together, not better.

Fiona is rude, she is condescending, and she walks around assuming things about people, and rationalizing her behavior based on those assumptions. I think you are supposed to like her because she adopted Shea, her sister, after her mother

Saving a Legend is book two in the Kavanagh Legend series.

Kieran's story is packed with emotion. Trying to put his life back together after being released from jail, Keiran wants to mend relationships with his family and and live his life minus any drama.

Fiona Doherty is just trying to keep everything together. Raising her sister Shea, who is autistic, and keeping her flower shop open has given her a full plate. The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of a charming not to mention
This is the first book I have read by Sarah Robinson and it won’t be my last! This book was a sweet romance between two people that don’t feel worthy of the love of a good partner because of their pasts.

Sarah Robinson did an amazing job of telling a story of the struggles of a selfless young woman taking care of her autistic 8-year-old sister after the death of her mother. Fiona works hard at the flower shop that she owns and tries to make ends meet between making her monthly payments on her bu
"Saving A Legend" , is the second in Ms Robinson's Kavanaugh Legends series and quiet truthfully the very first book I have read by Ms Robinson and I was not disappointed.
Though part of a series , this book can be read as a standalone, however I do believe I probably would have more insight into the family if I had read the first book first. This however did not detract from a well written storyline an interesting characters.

The story flowed smoothly. I appreciated how easy it was to read, to follow, and that it provided dual points of view. I was worried that because I didn't read the first book in the series that I would be lost, but the author did a great job with incorporating details of all the characters that this read like a standalone.

Two people with pasts that they are embarrassed about. Two people who are afraid to reveal the truth about it. And, a little girl that will steal your heart. Sarah Robinson gave us a wonderful story and teaches us a thing or two about Autism and ¬what it takes for a family to pull together and face this disorder head on.

Kieran had my heart from the beginning of this story. Yes, he had a rough start but he knows
