As one of the big names at his family’s gym, Legends, MMA star Rory Kavanagh is used to being in the spotlight—until a gruesome leg injury knocks him out of the cage. Rory is left feeling sidelined in more ways than one, battling the inner demons that come with losing the one shot at his dreams. Then Clare walks into his life and gives him a new dream: winning her heart. There aren’t many new faces in Woodlawn these days, but this tough, beautiful stranger makes Rory want to get his life back into fighting shape.
Clare Ivers doesn’t think she’ll be able to tell anyone what really brought her to the close-knit Bronx neighborhood where she just started bartending. But her life’s on pause and her past is catching up fast, try as she might to move on—with new friends, steady work, and a chiseled alpha male trying to get her attention. Even though Rory’s more than a little intense, she can’t deny that her heart beats faster when he looks at her with those soulful silver eyes. Clare thought she was done with love, but Rory might just be man enough to show her she thought wrong.

If her past had taught her anything. It was that men took what they wanted and left once they had it.
Clare intrigued me since the beginning of this book. I knew she went through a lot in her past with losing her parents at such a young age and her horrible life with her ex-boyfriend. What she had gone through with her ex- wasn't really clear and I really wanted to know what exactly happened and why it did. I enjoyed reading her character because she was a strong woman and she didn't annoy me.
I also enjoyed meeting Rory in this book. I loved reading about what happened to him and how his injury affected his life. Also, I completely adore his family. The Kavanaghs' are one of the best families I've ever read. They care so much for each other and they support and help one another which is simply amazing.
The secondary characters were all great. Casey was one of the best characters in this book with Kane and Ace. Casey was very mysterious in my opinion. She makes me want to know more about her personal life. I don't know if she's going to have her story to tell, but I hope she does because I would love to read it. I also want a book for Kane Kavanagh because I loved him as much.
Another thing I really liked about this book was how the characters cared about animals.
This was an awesome read. I had a few problems with the romance at some scenes, but overall it was a good book and I recommend it to readers who love contemporary romance.
