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 Hayden’s seemingly solid relationship begins to crack. Kenzie can only watch from the sidelines, as Felicia lives the life she was forced to leave behind, and as tension begins to build between Hayden and Kenzie, she wonders if Hayden isn’t the man she once knew.
4.5 “You’re My World” Stars!
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, but her dad blacklisted her & blocked her from the sport she loves. Her father pulled a lot of strings to make sure she was rejected, & nobody would take her. She’d lost everything but Hayden & felt like she was drowning without her family & career. To make matters worse, Hayden’s ex-girlfriend is hired to race on his team, & Kenzie is forced to watch from the sidelines as Felicia lives the life Kenzie had to give up. Kenzie just wants her old life back & be able to also be with the man she loves.
Hayden Hayes is a former street racer who is now racing legitimately for Benneti Motorsports. His ex who he hasn’t seen in four years shows up out of the blue & complicates his life by causing tension in his relationship with his girlfriend Kenzie. Kenzie is the only person in his life that stuck by his side & put him first. He had a sense of belonging when he was with her. She had become his home, & he’d do anything to keep her. He wanted to find a way to help her compete again. She belonged on a bike & he’d do whatever it took to get her there. He felt responsible & wanted to fix things for her.
-Very few people understood me like she did- our interests, our competitiveness, our tragic pasts, our fiery passion- it was like she was designed specifically for me. Thank God fate had put us on a path toward each other.
-She was the most beautiful thing in the world to me.
-She was mine, and I had no intention of ever giving her up. Not without a fight.
-“You mean everything to me, Kenzie.”
-“You’re my heart, my soul, my everything.”
-“You belong wherever I am.”
Racing, the thing that brought them together, was now a touchy subject. Hayden tried to be supportive while Kenzie continued trying to pick up the pieces of her life. He had something incredible with Kenzie & wouldn’t give it up, but suddenly everything & everyone seemed to be conspiring against them. Their relationship is strained, & things begin to fall apart. Will love be enough when secrets and lies are revealed?
I really enjoyed this book & can’t wait for the next one. This book was full of angst & love. I can’t get enough of the delicious Hayden Hayes!
