Too fast, too furious—and way too hot to handle…
Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father's talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team's newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie's skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she's racing against Hayden.

As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense—and strictly forbidden—attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind...

Furious Rush was perfectly named. For this story definitely took me on one crazy race of numerous emotions. I felt those crazy butterflies that Ms. Stephen's is a master at giving her readers when they start falling for her bad boy heroes. I felt quite a bit of irritation again for another heroine who could not make up her mind. Kenzie was very immature. She wavered constantly and wasn't very honest. The suspenseful action kept me invested and had my pulse jumping. The sexual tension was so thick I felt the pages would implode a time or two. Then as I fell for Hayden I felt tingles and excitement . I will say that the angst is absolutely on the high side and I wanted to scream so often. Secrets hurt and this book was completely full of secrets. The whole Felicia aspect is the one thing that completely made me doubt this romance and kept me from loving it. The cliffy wasn't horrible but if Felicia causes issues between this couple I won't be able to deal with it. Hayden has to prove early on that Kenzie is his #1 and Felicia has nothing to do with it. Right now there is massive doubt. 4 stars for keeping me on my toes .
