Chasing a Legend
Kavanagh Legends #4
By Sarah Robinson
Releasing August 22nd, 2017
In Chasing a Legend (Kavanagh Legends #4) by Sarah Robinson, the last few months have been tough for Quinn Kavanagh since the night of his near fatal motorcycle accident. But now with the help of his childhood crush, Dr. Keira Finley, he might just start to be able to find his way back to doing the things he loves like his secret passion for sculpting. Yet, the more time he spends with Keira, the more Quinn finds himself falling for her all over again, especially when she encourages him to follow his dreams. However, when the right opportunity arises for one of them, will they stay together or will they decide to end things?
Just like all the other books of this series, this story was everything I'd hoped for and more in the way it was enthralling, fast-paced and had me enjoying the main characters due to their back stories and everything they go through to be together. The way this story started with the prologue had me empathizing with the hero because of what happens to him, yet it also had me hooked as I was determined to discover how life has been treating the hero after his accident. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine met that had me amused due to the heroine's reaction to Quinn.
As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters history, as Quinn doesn't know whether he'll ever be able to trust that Keira won't leave again. Will Quinn give her a chance? However, in saying that, the dialogue wasn't all intense. There were some really good light-hearted moments that had me smiling, Furthermore, Keira was an enjoyable heroine and I loved her back story. Why did she leave the way she did all those years ago? She's also resilient, brave and I liked how determined she was to first win back Quinn's friendship and then discover whether they could be more. I also liked how much faith she had in Quinn's artistic ability and how she encourages him to follow his dreams. Will he finally confess his love of art to his family? Will he follow his dreams like the heroine encourages him to?
While Quinn, he was a fantastic hero who has been through a lot and I couldn't help but sympathize with him when it came to what happened with his accident. Certainly, he's lucky to be alive and I liked how determined he was to get back to being able to take care of himself instead of relying on help from his family. I also liked his enthusiasm for his art and his determination to pursue his dreams, as he needed to know whether he could have more outside of working for the family gym. Will his family be supportive of his dreams? Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine is the tight bond he shares with his family and how they will do anything for each other whether it's offering much needed advice or offering each other support in tough times.
Overall, Ms. Robinson has penned a fantastic read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance hot and made me think that Keira is one lucky woman with being able to get a second chance with Quinn; and the ending had me liking how supportive Quinn's family are when it comes to being with the woman he loves. Yet, what I liked most about the ending is how determined Quinn was to win Keira back because there was no way he could live without her. I would recommend Chasing a Legend by Sarah Robinson, if you enjoy the second chance romance trope or books by authors Corinne Michaels, Sidney Halston, Brenda Rothert and LP Dover.

SAVING A LEGEND:
BECOMING A LEGEND:
"Robinson concludes her Kavanagh Legends contemporary quartet (after Becoming a Legend) with a perfect blend of smoldering heat and gentle tenderness. After an accident, mixed martial arts fighter Quinn Kavanagh is placed under the care of physical therapist Keira Finley, his first and only love. She has no idea that she broke his heart when she left for college six years earlier. They’d been best friends since they were kids and never experienced life without each other’s unwavering support, but when Quinn didn’t ask her to stay, Keira needed to prove to herself that she could make it on her own. Quinn’s emotional scars run a lot deeper than the physical ones. He’s afraid to open himself up to Keira again, but with the encouragement of his boisterous, fun-loving family, he learns to give to himself as freely as he’s always given to others. This endearing story showcases Keira and Quinn’s easy banter, familiar warmth, and unquenchable heat. Quinn is the last Kavanagh brother to meet his mate, but subtle mentions of potential future love matches among their friends will leave readers eager for spin-offs." - Publisher's Weekly
“I’m leaving Legends now. My bags are packed, so be ready to go as soon as I get there,” Quinn said into the phone, his thick arm flexing as he twisted it to look at his watch.
“UK, here we come!” his older brother Kane shouted through the line. Quinn could practically see him fist-pumping the air. “You’re the best manager ever, Q!”
“Better believe it, Killer.” Quinn laughed before disconnecting the call and pushing his phone into a small interior pocket of the leather jacket that fit snugly over his chiseled back and broad shoulders. Straddling his prized possession, a classic Ducati he’d kept in pristine condition for years, Quinn pulled on his helmet and gloves. His shaggy black hair peeked out from under the edges of the helmet, framing his face. Though covered in leather, glimpses of his love of ink showed on his neck and hands. What could not be seen was how the tattoos continued onto his chest and back as well. He loved the images, and each one had a special meaning to him—a falcon across his chest in midflight to symbolize his yearning for freedom, a dragon wrapping his arm to mark the fire in his blood, the Kavanagh family crest and motto in Gaelic on his back to represent family pride, along with phrases and names of people and moments that had made him who he was. But the small metal bar through his eyebrow, or the piercings in his ear? Those were just for fun.
The motorcycle roared to life beneath him, easily heard from blocks away, as he pulled out onto the main street and headed for his parents’ house to meet his brother. He might not live there any longer, but he’d grown up in that house, and it would always feel like home. The whole neighborhood was his home; he knew everyone there, and everyone knew the Kavanaghs—for better or worse. Quinn rode past the quaint houses in the Woodlawn area of the Bronx, going through a mental checklist of everything he needed to do before Kane competed next week.
The International MMA Championship, held in London this year, was the biggest mixed martial arts competition in the world. Kane had won that championship the last two years, giving him the title of World’s Greatest MMA Fighter. Kane planned to win a third time next week and Quinn was eager to stand by his side when he did. It’d been three short years since his brother had been thrust into the public spotlight after winning his first U.S. National Championship in Vegas. Quinn beamed proudly at the memory. Even though he wasn’t the one in the cage, he still felt a part of his brother’s success, having managed his entire career from the beginning. Kane’s win was Quinn’s win. It was a win for all the Kavanaghs—something they each really needed after everything the family had been through. As he approached his parents’ street, he signaled with both his right hand and turn signal that he was switching lanes. A large truck whistled past, completely ignoring his signal. Quinn yanked the bike to the left, narrowly escaping a collision as his heart leapt into his throat. Asshole.
Taking a deep breath to calm the adrenaline shooting through his body at the close call, Quinn carefully looked around, and once he’d confirmed that the right lane was clear, he again signaled his intentions. Sliding the bike into the right lane, he accelerated, eager to get to his childhood home. That was his last thought before it happened. His family. How happy he was. How much he loved his life. A silver sedan parallel-parked against the curb nosed out into the right lane, directly in front of Quinn’s bike. His eyes widened as the air left his lungs, and he attempted to swerve around the sudden obstacle. But there was no time. There was no space.
The front wheel of his bike slammed into the front wheel well of the sedan, and Quinn was weightless. He barely had a moment to blink before he was twisting through the air—over the handlebars, over his bike, over the sedan. He heard the impact before he felt it. His body skidding over the unforgiving pavement as wind rushed past him—a crunching, tumbling screech. Car horns firing, people screaming—or was he screaming? The echoes inside his helmet both muted and deafened. But then he felt it, and it was fucking hell. The crack of bones, a searing pain shooting through him. Every nerve ending in his body set on fire at the force of impact, consuming him till he was certain he couldn’t stand another second of it. Sliding across the pavement, his skin burned against the grating asphalt, his leather gear no match for the unforgiving surface. And then it was quiet. So fucking quiet as he stared up at the sun and waited . . . for what, he didn’t know. He wasn’t connected to his body, but somehow trapped inside it.
Quinn tried to call for help, tried to get up, but his lungs and limbs ignored his commands. Just as his eyes began to flutter closed, the pain overtaking him, pushing him beyond what he could ever handle . . . he saw her. Her strawberry-blond hair falling down past her soft pink cheeks, the sun creating a halo behind her. Her fingertips grazed his face, and she whispered to him so softly he barely made out what she said. Light blue eyes, nearly translucent in their brightness, told him to just hold on . . . don’t let go . . . don’t give up. And then she was gone. And so was he.
