Feeling the rush comes with a price...

Mackenzie Cox has lost everything—except Hayden Hayes. With Kenzie's racing career over, and her family no longer speaking to her, Hayden has been her rock, as she tries to pick up the pieces of what was once her life.

But when Hayden's racing team hires his beautiful ex-girlfriend, Felicia, to be their new hotshot rider, Kenzie and Hay

Please explain to me how the hell this can be a romance, or how this guy can redeem himself ?!

"As my body throbbed with need, on the edge of exploding, Kenzie groaned in my ear, “God…that mouth…I’ll never get enough.”

"Maybe it was guilt, maybe it was the passion I felt simmering off her, maybe it was desire-induced delirium, but Kenzie’s words made it impossible to forget the past, and Felicia suddenly filled every corner of my mind. Her husky voice saying those exact same words flooded my ears,
First, I rarely leave reviews this long. Probably because I think most get bored after awhile but I have some things to say...

Maybe it was the excitement I was feeling for this books arrival that made me give it 5 stars right after finishing But I'm changing my star score from 5* to 2*. Which is very bad for m

Mackenzie Cox is a professional motorcycle racer living in Oceanside, California. Racing had always been her dream, & she didn't have a Plan B, so she didn't know what to do when everything she loved was abruptly stripped away. Cox racing closed & her father gave her an ultimatum, and made her choose between her boyfriend and competing. Kenzie chose Hayden & is now left without a team. She's trying everything she can to get on a team before the new season starts,

Beyond disgusting. Hayden is scum, and how are we meant to believe he loves Kenzie when he is more turned on by recurring his ex when they have sex? And he wishes he could keep his ex from leaving? Sorry I had no faith in their romance. Plain gross. Mind you I saw what this author was about after the Thoughtless Series, which was abysmal, with self absorbed characters.

Not safe,

H thinking of ex girlfriend breast, and body while actually having sex with his current girlfriend, and silently calling ex's name when H climax in side his head. Wow. That's some love

He loves his girlfriend but thinking of ex, that's not acceptable,

Dangerous Rush vibrates with all-consuming emotions, layered with conflicting thoughts and actions. The intensity of the story takes you from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye. Passion, drama, and heartbreak pour from the pages, completely enrapturing the reader with every word written.

The forbidden romance that we fell in love with in Furious Rush is put to the test in Dangerous Rush when loved ones stop at nothing to break up Hayden and Kenzie, and an ex-girlfriend is back in the picture. Secret

Nope. Hero is a cheater, both emotionally (still has major feelings for his ex, pictures his ex when having sex with our h in a graphic gratuitous way) and physically (kisses the ex and goes out basically on dates with her while committed to our h). This is just a God-awful story and the H isn’t redeemable. It turned my stomach reading his thoughts, and I have A LOT of different genres/tropes. It takes a lot to turn my stomach, but I couldn’t even read about him without a grimace on my face.

While I'm already a huge fan of SC Stephens, what made me most excited for this book was the fact that I absolutely LOVED Furious Rush, the first book in this series. After the cliffhanger in the last book, I have been dying to pick up this sequel.

Kenzie's life has always revolved around racing. Until it didn't. Kenzie has lost everything except for Hayden Hayes, the love of her life. Kenzie thought, without a doubt, that Hayden was worth more than her racing career, but as Hayden has been keep

"Riding a race bike is an art—a thing that you do because you feel something inside.”~Valentino Rossi

If you've ever been to a NASCAR, Formula One, motocross, or other race, you know that racing is a sensory-driven sport where you feel a buzz in the air. If you race a car or motorcycle on the track or road, you feel that power gush behind the wheel. Like action-packed racing, books can give that rush. Dangerous Rush by SC Stephens sends the senses spinning around the track in a RUSH of a ROMANCE

OMG just finished Dangerous Rush by S.C. Stephens. "THE FEELS!!!!!!!!!!"

The entire book is fucking angst. My heart couldn't stop pounding. I wanted to throw my fucking kindle and I felt at times I was dying inside. I started this book last night but had to put it down at midnight because I had to work in the am. And yeah went to work for the morning and I needed to read so yeah I fucking took the afternoon off to come home and finish it. Yup just went and emailed my boss and said yeah I'm taking

Drama drama drama

The first half of the book is told primarily from Hayden’s POV.

I really struggled with this one. I hated how this story progressed. The ex-girlfriend (Felicia) came back and took up 75% of the book. Hayden, apparently still in love with Felicia, was a horrible boyfriend to Kenzie. She literally gave up EVERYTHING to be with him. Her racing career. Her family. Her dreams. And how does Hayden repay her? By lusting after Felicia. Getting butterflies when she was near. Remembering

This book should have been called Furious Rush, cause that's exactly how Hayden made me feel. FURIOUS!! Maybe that's a bit harsh, but damn the man, WTAF was he thinking? Clearly he wasn't!

So I basically consumed this book. I was too anxious to put it down and only did after I saw things turn a bit. But then I was up at 4am reading it made me angsty and angry and so sad and disappointed. Hayden hides the truth from Kenzie (lies by omission and outright lies) and then he well does some

At the end of Furious Rush when Hayden’s past collided with his present, I knew S.C. Stephens was preparing to take readers on a complicated angst-filled journey in Dangerous Rush, and boy was I right! I NEVER felt settled or even that hopeful about Hayden and Kenzie making it through this rough patch because there was always someone or something attempting to tear them apart, and it also seemed that they too easily allowed a divide to be built between them, forgetting how dishonesty and feeling ...more

DANGEROUS RUSH picks up several weeks after FURIOUS RUSH.  Mackenzie and Hayden are trying to pick up the pieces of Cox Racing closing its doors and Hayden's racing team hiring his ex-girlfriend.  Things have never been easy for this couple and DANGEROUS RUSH definitely puts them to the test.

I had been looking forward to this book because I wanted to know what happened next with Kenzie and Hayden.  But I felt like the story fell a little fl

This had to be one of the worst books I have ever read. I liked Hayden in book 1 but in this book he turned out to be one of the worst assholes regardless of what he turned out to be in the end. Kenzie was another ediot who had a strong character in book 1 but in this book ended up being a dumbass who took a job for her biggest enemy as a swimsuit model (if you even call it that) just so she can still be part of the racing world. Hayden thinking of his ex while having sex with Kenzie and then co ...more

Dangerous Rush is a heart pounding, adrenaline induced MUST READ!

Going into this novel, I was a little nervous. I have been anticipating the release of Dangerous Rush since reading the final page of Furious Rush. To say that could put some pressure on not only a reader and blogger but also an author would be an understatement.

I am very pleased to announce I loved this novel..maybe a little more than the first book in the series (Furious Rush). It has been a lon

Dangerous Rush picks up right where Furious Rush leaves off. Kenzie is struggling. He father has blacklisted her from the sport she loves, she has run out of options. She struggles to find her place and her happiness and it doesn't help that Hayden's ex, Felicia is on his team. She reluctantly takes a job from a man she loathes, but hey, it keeps her close to the two things she loves, Hayden and racing.

Hayden is caught in his past and his present. Felicia was a big part of his life unt

I have to say I enjoyed book two way more than first one. There was a, lot more action and drama. Some parts I wanted to kick Hayden about. I mean Kenzie gave up everything for him. And he was acting like an ass which she didn't deserve at all. I know what it's like when I family doesn't approve, it guts you eats at you. But at the end of day you have to ask yourself. My family is not going to keep warm at night, and do I want live with regrets of just giving in. No you don't when you fall for t ...more

I’m really disappointed with the Furious Rush series. While I have no complaints about the author’s general writing and plotting in this series per se, I really must say something against its characterization. Unfortunately, the protagonists are EXACTLY like Kiera and Kellen from the Thoughtless series. IMHO, the characters have just been recycled into a different plot.

Furious Rush left me rubbing my hands together in giddy anticipation of this next book in the series. I remember thinking that the level of angst had just been turned up a few notches, which was exactly where I wanted it to go, and exactly where I expected this author to take the story. Dangerous Rush took that level of angst and revved it up even higher. I was feeling all of the familiar pangs of emotion and turmoil, but it was elevated to a point that made my heart pound that little

So I am sort of sitting on the fence when it comes to Dangerous Rush. I love S.C. Stephen and she is an author that helped secure my reading addiction years ago so for me to not be screaming down the house about Dangerous Rush is difficult for me. Now I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either so that it sits me directly on the fence of which way do I go or do I stay in the middle and straddle both sides. I t

I remember being incredibly confused at the ending of book one and I am happy to say that this second instalment continues where the last one left us hanging.

Now it was Kenzie who frustrated me in the first book. I felt her character was too weak to be a likeable heroine, however she really became so much stronger in this story. I'd go so far as to say she finally grew a set of balls.

We get to know Hayden so much more in this book, due to the chapters being told almost alternately in both Ken

Loved it!

Get ready for another amazing wild ride from Author S.C. Stephens.

Hayden is one man that had me loving him one minute and wanting to save him the next minute.
He is such a complex character that easily won my heart in the end but there were times I wanted to shake some sense into him when it came to his love for Kenzie.

Kenzie is one tough independent woman which I love but her stubbornness and angst with Hayden and with her father also had me wanting to smack some sense into her as well.

Another fantastic installment to this story!

I absolutely love the saga of Hayden and Kenzie.

Although book one did not end in a true cliffhanger, it definitely left us with plenty of questions about Hayden’s past and Kenzie’s future. Book two will definitely give you the answers you’re looking for, but if you expected it to be easy for them, you’re mistaken. If there’s one thing SC Stephens does really well, it’s complicated.

Love, lust, angst, heartache - this book has a little bit of everythi

I really enjoyed the first book, but I have to say, I think I enjoyed Dangerous Rush so much more. I had a feeling we were in for a ride with this one and I was most definitely right. Dangerous Rush was angsty, emotional, and unputdownable. It was IMPOSSIBLE to stop reading this book. I had to know what was going to happen next. I NEEDED to make sure Hayden and Kenzie were going to be okay.

There were times I wanted to throttle Hayden, yet I still couldn’t help but love him. S.C. Stephen’s doesn’

I really wanted to love this duet. But I struggled a little with it. I loved the storyline but I struggled with the amount of drama and yes sex. I found myself skipping over several scenes. I was happy how the story ended.
