From the author of Saving a Legend (“A deep and moving story about family, acceptance, and love.”—Katy Evans) comes another smoldering MMA romance featuring the Kavanagh brothers, the chiseled alpha males whose real legacy is love.
Kane Kavanagh has always had one goal: being the best mixed martial arts fighter alive. With the MMA National Championships in Las Vegas fast approaching, the man they call “Killer” has no intention of letting anyone or anything get in his way. Somehow, though, a feisty opponent has slipped beneath his guard—and stolen his heart. Fiery and passionate, Nora Hannigan is harder to pin down than any rival Kane has faced in the ring. And she isn’t afraid to tell Kane that she wants nothing to do with him.
With her best friend about to marry into the Kavanagh family, Nora has been resisting Kane’s shameless attempts at flirting for months. But after their undeniable chemistry finally takes over, leading to the hottest night of Nora’s life, she’s running scared. There’s a lot about her life Kane doesn’t know, and she won’t be responsible for ending his career. Now Kane’s out to prove that he’s ready for commitment by winning her heart—and he’s never lost a fight.

Out of all the books in the Kavanagh Legends series, this is my favorite. Becoming A Legendis about Fiona’s best friend, Nora Hannigan and Kieran’s twin brother, Kane Kavanagh.
The love-hate relationship between them is fascinating. I can’t help smiling whenever they exchange witty banters and later on leads to a steamy romance. These two have priorities in life and they don’t have time to engage in relationships because it will distraction on their goals. With Nora finishing her Psychology degree, maintaining her grades to qualify on scholarship, working to sustain her needs and keeping up with her mother, who hasn’t been good to her and has gambling problems. While Kane is busy training for upcoming fight and aims to win for his family.
The pressure is on but they remained passionate and motivated when it comes to their careers. As they spend more time together, Nora sees beyond Kane’s reputation of being a player. He’s a lovely man and she’s slowly falling for him. Likewise, Kane finds her sweet, kind and strong instead of a grouchy and guarded woman. I’m engrossed with their story and I love how they matutely handled their issues. The sexual between them is so good and hot! Kane is really an attentive lover. For the love of Irish men. Irish. Hot. Men.
If you are looking for novels with hot MMA fighters, I recommend this series. It’s really good and the Kavanagh family is awesome. I am looking forward for Quinn’s book. 😉
