**Release Blitz** Furious Rush by S.C. Stephens




Synopsis: 
The first in an emotion-fueled, New Adult series from the #1 bestselling author of the Thoughtless novels.Too fast, too furious-and way too hot to handle . . .Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father's talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team's newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie's skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she's racing against Hayden.

As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense--and strictly forbidden--attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind...



Review by Wendy

I am a huge MotoGP racing fan, the sound and smell of the bikes at the race track is indescribable and it was with that backdrop that SC gives us the story of Kenzie and Hayden. Think leathers, fast machines and sizzling chemistry and you’ll find it all wrapped up in this book.

You can’t not like Hayden, he’s arrogant, impossibly handsome, leather clad, dare devil, speed freak, cocky and somewhat of a mystery, there was no way Kenzie wasn’t going to be drawn to him, even if it was the very last thing she should do.

Kenzie is battling her way in a male dominated world of Motorcycle sport, with its chauvinism, danger and high expectations of success.  Being a woman was hindrance enough in this environment but to be the daughter of a racing legend the expectations of success were even greater. She was constantly fighting the perception that she was a wealthy, spoilt, princess of a girl, but in reality she loved racing, she loved her father and her team and she just wanted to succeed for them.

I was so frustrated with some of those around her, they seemed to take advantage of her good nature and her father I felt was a little cold and dismissive of the circumstance his daughter was in.  Where was his understanding?

It was clear from the writing that SC is a racing fan, race days were real and team orders believable.

The ending will leave you wondering, what next?

Review


I have always had a hard time reading BDSM themed books. I find the content to be graphic and the books to be repetitive. However, Elizabeth showed BDSM in a classy way. She taught us the positive side of this lifestyle with Untouchable.

"He’d broken through many subs’ walls. He would start out gentle and slow, let them grow comfortable with his hands, his voice and his touch. Their facades would slip. The needs they’d hidden would unfold. And then—and only then—they’d beg for him to scratch an itch they couldn’t name."

London is a no-nonsense type of girl. Do it yourself. Don't rely on anyone. That has been her motto. When a chance meet up with a fantasy guy happens, London's strength and will are tested. Carson is used to women coming and going from his life, without leaving him anything other than controllable pleasure. But when he and London test each other, will they be able to let their walls down, and accept each other's desires?

"London was about to learn that he wasn’t like any man she’d ever encountered before. He would evolve into the definition of who he knew himself to be, and who London really needed: a master of self-control. And loyalty."

This was a great read. I came into it a bit iffy, but within words, I was drawn in. Filled with realism, lust, love and truth, Untouchable is worth the read!  Elizabeth put a lot of heart and soul into this book!  And it definitely shows!


"He decided not to argue with her. At the moment. But he’d be damned if she walked away believing their weekend was just words. He wouldn’t let her dismiss the power it could bring to them both."

Author Bio 


Writing erotic romance is the most fun I’ve ever had. (Well, except for the research.)

Many of my books are set in Washington, DC, where I lived and worked many years, running a public relations firm. In my PR career I’ve been fortunate to encounter or represent some of the city’s powerful insiders. I write, tweet and post under my pseudonym, Elizabeth SaFleur, since my clients might be a little shocked at how their counselor spends her free time. Then again, perhaps they’d fear they provided inspiration. (I’ll never tell.)

Today, I live  in Virginia with my husband and furry child. Occasionally I’m separated from my laptop to indulge in dance classes and visit wineries and hiking trails with family and friends. If there were a house fire, I’d grab my dog, laptop and five-foot-long, regulation, Sally Rand ostrich feather fans — in that order. (Hubby knows the way out.)

I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America, Washington Romance Writers, and an ongoing student of fiction writing, as well as avid reader of general fiction and romance, especially the erotic kind.
