REVIEW - Saving a Legend (Kavanagh Legends #2) by Sarah Robinson
Release Date: 14 June 2016
Praised by Penelope Ward as “a unique story line with multiple layers to it,” Sarah Robinson’s Saving a Legend goes another round with the brooding Kavanagh brothers: MMA fighters who won’t call it quits in the ring, or in romance.
His family’s gym has produced a roster of mixed martial arts legends, but so far Kieran Kavanagh hasn’t followed in their footsteps. After a brawl lands him in jail, Kieran is assigned to work at a center for at-risk youth. Though given a second chance, Kieran’s simply going through the motions—until he meets one very special kid, Shea Doherty, and falls hard for her very beautiful, very grown-up big sister, Fiona. The trouble is, Kieran’s best opening moves are getting him nowhere fast.
Fiona Doherty has too many responsibilities to fool around, especially now that she has custody of Shea. Sure, she’d love to find a devoted partner. But she won’t jeopardize her sister’s happiness—or risk revealing her tortured past—on a love-’em-and-leave-’em type of guy like Kieran . . . so it’s up to him to prove her wrong. As Fiona spends more time with Kieran, she starts to see a softer side of the reckless warrior. Now she must admit that when it comes to the possibility of real love, well . . . there’s a fighting chance.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
My Opinion 4 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Random House, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
Although this is the second book in the series, i have not read the first and did not feel like i needed to.
Kieran has just been released from prison and only two days later he meets Fiona in her flower shop and instantly seems to know that she will be the woman for him.
Most of the problems lay on Fiona's end and how she pushes away, especially as she is guardian to her little sister who has Autism. Kieran is very good with Shea (Shay) and helps Fiona over come some things whilst also giving her a loving family and friends for support that she didn't realise she needed.
Kieran is a strong man raised in a very close Irish family who simple accept Fiona. He is persistent in fighting for what he wants and goes and slow as Fiona needs, but pushes when he needs to in order to break through her defences.
Its a well written story that had me wondering right until the end some of the missing details in Fiona life.
