Becoming a Legend is the 3rd book in Sarah Robinson's Kavanagh Legends Series. This book can easily be read as a standalone. I have read and loved them all so far. I will be honest and say that I was hoping when I first seen a new Kavanagh Legends book on netgalley that it would be Quinn or Jimmy's book. They both piqued my interest. Kane was my least favorite brother so I felt a little disappointed that it was Kanes book. Funny that I ended up loving Kanes book

How have I not read anything by this author before? What is wrong with me? Why am I starting this series with book 3? Well, at least I know the answer to the third question there, and that's because I like to do things back-asswards more often than not. As for the other two? I have no clue and I'm kicking myself for the mistake thoroughly because I seriously enjoyed this book.

"Just remember, when you pick your woman, pick the one who makes you laugh when nothing is funny. The one who could make life great even if you were homeless and living under a bridge."

The Kavanagh brothers are back with a bang with Kane and Nora's story. Becoming a Legend, the third in the series, can certainly be enjoyed as a stand-alone and yet, I highly recommend reading the entire series from the beginning in order to enjoy every single solitary moment of this series from the beginning!

Thank you Loveswept for providing an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Out of all the books in the Kavanagh Legends series, this is my favorite. Becoming A Legend is about Fiona's best friend, Nora Hannigan and Kieran's twin brother, Kane Kavanagh.

The love-hate relationship between them is fascinating. I can't help smiling whenever they exchange witty banters and later on leads to a steamy romance. These two have priorities in life and they don't have time to engage in relati

Becoming a Legend was a good read.
I enjoyed the storyline and the characters entertained me with their romance.

I loved watching Kane and Nora get together, they made me laugh and swoon with their antics.

Another great time with the Kavanaghs!

I love this MMA fighting family with brothers and parents who stick together through thick and thin. This is the third outing and Kane and Nora are giving in to the flirting buildup. If you’ve read this series at all than these characters will be familiar and already loved. Kane is dedicated to his sport which hides a surprisingly quiet and shy man beneath the bravado. Nora has proven to be a true friend already to the Kavanagh family. She has resisted him u

Slick's 5 star review
I'm a sucker for series that revolve around a family and Sarah Robinson's Kavanagh Legends has been spectacular. The enemies to friends to lovers angle, a high stakes fight hanging in the balance, a bit of suspense, and the Kavanagh family doing what they do best-- kicking a$$ and taking names made Becoming a Legend my favorite in the series to date!

Kane Kavanaugh has always felt like he just didn't measure up to

Damn, i wanted to like this story more but these factors made me reluctant in doing that:

Push and pull.
Ok, usually I'm all for a little flight/chase action, it gives a certain "spice" to the angst and anticipation.

Here, it was a bit annoying and that set me back...

So the story goes smth like this:

I enjoyed this book. And I appreciated the idea that it is possible to be atttracted to someone, and yet at the same time be in a place in your life where the addition of a relationship is an issue. Life happens, and often in romance novels, the reality is set aside for the flutters of love for the characters. It really appealed to me that this reality, for both Nora and Kane, was addressed and had an impact. I did believe the choices they would m

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

Another good installment to this series. I liked Kane a great deal, even if it took him a while to get his head out of his butt and admit his feelings. I liked Nora and the way she handled situations at the center for kids, but her mommy issues bugged me. I am more of a 'if you don't like me, leave me the hell alone' person, so it's hard for me to connect with Nora doing so much to earn her mom's (nonexistent) love and attention. But

I just could not get into this story. I don't k is if it was because I didn't read the others or it just wasn't for me.

The writing was great that wasn't the problem. I would get all the brothers mixed up there was so many people to keep up with. I liked the aspect of working with kids. Kane was a great guy underneath is bravado.

Everyone else liked it it just didn't do it for me.

Received a ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.

Becoming a Legend is the third book in the Kavanagh Legends series. It can be read as a standalone and you will not be lost or confused. It was my first book and it will not be my last! I love series that involve siblings and if you do too, then you should definitely read this series.
Becoming a Legend is Kane’s story, and I have to say that I loved him immediately. But it was really easy to love him. He is an MMA fighter, with the arrogance to go with it, but there is so much mo

The initial banter between the main characters was cute but I didn't care for their relationship or how the heroine handled her big secret. Both made her look so weak, the total opposite of her career path. She made the story unbelievable and I skimmed the second half but I did finish. Student Nora and MMA fighter Kane run into each other at a party for her best friend and his twin brother. ...more

-it may contain small spoilers of the book and the previous two of the series!!!-

These Kavanagh brothers with each book prove more and more to be a God’s-gifts-to-women and almost impossible for every of-the-female-species person on this planet to resist them. Seriously, Sarah might be some kind of witch because, except that she keeps creating better-than-the-previous-one BBFs, I still can’t decide which one is the be

This is the third book in the Kavanagh series and we get Kane Kavanagh & Nora Hannigan story...yes! These two have been butting heads since Killian, Kane's twin, and Fiona, Nora's Best Friend, got together in Saving a Legend. I had loved watching these two go at it and knew their story would be a good one and I was not disappointed at all.

I was really looking forward to reading Becoming a Legend by Sarah Robinson. I had read the second book in the series and really loved it. While I did enjoy this book it didn't quite live up to the second book. Saving a Legend was deeply emotional with well developed characters that you couldn't help but love. Becoming a Legend features Kane and Nora who we were set up for in the second book. Kane threw Nora cheesy pick up lines and Nora deflected them and h

She is there but its not all what it seems . She keeps pushing him away but when the heart wants what the heart wants . There is no denying it .

Becoming a Legend by Sarah Robinson is yet another story that I devoured with a passion. This 5 star story was highly anticipated.

This is the story of Kane, one of the Kavanagh brothers. He's training for a fighting championship which has been a life long dream. He's focused and he can't afford any distractions. Nora is one of his sister in laws best friend and a distraction he says he doesn't need. They can't stand each other, they bicker all the time. But one night together will make sparks f
Time for Nora and Kane story with Becoming a Legend! To tell the truth, when Nora was introduced in the previous book, I didn't think much of her. She wasn't a bad character, she just didn't stand out much for me. Knowing what I know now, I realize I should have paid better attention to her. Now on the other hand, Kane was definitely on my radar. I did at first think he was a total jerk for taking his twin's fighting name while he was in jail. Now that I know he story, his thoughts and feeling o ...more
