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.

 Breaking a Legend by Sarah Robinson 
(Kavanaugh Legends, #1)

Breaking a Legend (Kavanagh Legends, #1)A year ago Rory Kavanaugh saw his career shatter as easily as his bones. Physically recovered now, the former MMA fighter has made himself into a victim of fate, wallowing in a serious drug addiction and the mind-numbing effects of alcohol.

Clare is running for her life, literally. She wants to take back her life, become a strong person instead of the punching bag for her abusive ex who refuses to let her go. She wants to feel empowered and independent, but there is something about this shadow of a man that haunts her as much as she haunts him.

Are they ready to enter the ring of life and take one for love as they give a knockout punch to the pain of their pasts? Will they be there standing in the corner to support each other, no matter if one goes down for the count?

Great banter, a hilarious family group, sweet discoveries, the man behind the fa├žade of cold indifference and the woman blossoming into the person she wants to be. Breaking a Legend by Sarah Robinson is a firm foundation for a new series that promises to heat up your reading with passion, desire and sensual fire.

I received an ARC edition from Random House - Loveswept in exchange for my honest review.
