The most soulful Kavanagh brother tackles the challenge of a lifetime—with a little help from the girl of his dreams.
“Fans of Lori Foster’s SBC Fighters series will love the MMA atmosphere of [Sarah] Robinson’s Legends.”—Library Journal
A topnotch manager and agent, Quinn Kavanagh pictures a life outside of his family’s renowned MMA gym. Beneath his sleek exterior, Quinn has a secret passion for sculpting. But after a nearly fatal motorcycle accident, he’s struggling just to walk again, let alone get back to the studio—and it doesn’t help that the doctor in charge of his physical therapy is his childhood crush. Quinn’s always ready for a fight, but the bittersweet sting of unrequited love has him begging for mercy.
Dr. Kiera Finley is determined to make her medical residency a success. Six years ago, she gave in and shared a single passionate night with Quinn. Now she’s just hoping the cocky lover from her past doesn’t derail her plans for the future. Little by little, though, Kiera gets to know another side of Quinn. She knew he was a family man, devoted to his parents and brothers, but he’s also a free spirit trapped in a cage—and only she has the key. To heal both Quinn’s body and soul, Kiera’s tempted to give him a special kind of medicine.

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.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this novel!!! It was utterly swoon-worthy!!! I loved the rambunctious Kavanagh family, the tight knit community, Kiera's strength and quirkiness, Quinn's devotion to his family.....EVERYTHING!!! The whole novel was sooo good!!! Even the dogs were AWESOME and an important part of the family. I liked how Kiera brought Quinn out of his "quiet". She encouraged his art and his dreams. This is a must read novel!!! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
My favorite of the Kavanagh Legends!
This is the fourth book in this series and Quinn and Keira’s story is my favorite so far. This book touched my heart so much! I have been waiting for Quinn’s story and I certainly wasn’t disappointed! Quinn isn’t a fighter in the family legacy. He is the man behind the MMA gym and behind his brothers as manager and agent. He is his father’s right-hand man. After his accident, Quinn questions if he wants to go back working in the family business or changing direction.
Quinn and Keira were childhood best friends and Quinn was in love with her. When Keira wanted to lose her virginity at 18 before she went to college, she couldn’t think of anyone else that she would want to share it with but Quinn. She also had feelings for Quinn but she was heading to college and needed to concentrate on her dream of being a doctor. The night before she left for college, she and Quinn took care of her virginity problem. Quinn wanted to tell her that he loved her but chickened out. The next day, his brother told him to quit moping around the house and go and get his girl. By the time Quinn arrived at Keira’s house, flowers in hand and heart on his sleeve, she had already left without a goodbye. There was a huge misunderstanding between them and their relationship was never the same. She broke Quinn’s heart. My heart hurt for him. I have to admit there were a few times I teared up throughout the book while reading.
Six years later, Quinn is in a terrible motorcycle accident that requires him to have physical therapy. His doctor (who is in residency training) is none other than Keira! He had no idea she was back in town. There is nothing better than an unrequited love story, lost first love, and second chance at love all rolled into one great story!
I love the Kavanagh clan and this book can be read as a standalone but to really appreciate all there is to this series, start from the beginning. The main characters are developed and they had me from the start. The Kavanagh brothers and their families are part of the supporting cast and I felt like I was a part of their family. There is so much involved with this story. Family drama, push and pull between Quinn and Keira, Quinn trying to find himself after the accident and Quinn and Keira trying to work out where they wanted to take their relationship. I was totally entrenched in the story. I don’t want to give you any of the plot points as I feel it needs to be experienced.
I highly recommend this beautiful love story between Quinn and Keira. Nothing better than a love story about the one that got away and the hero that has pined for her for years.
Quinn has stolen my heart!
I have not read any of the Kavanagh books prior to this one, but I absolutely fell hard for this family and will definitely be going back to catch up with this family
Quinn and Kiera have a second chance at romance. They were best friends in high school and Quinn always loved Kiera until she left for school without a goodbye. Quinn was shattered. I loved this part of the story because we have this tough tatted up guy who was gutted when the girl he loved left him. He didn't know if he'd ever be able to move on. When Kiera comes back to town and is Quinn's doctor, her feelings for him are just as strong. I loved watching them discover the love that never got a chance when they were younger. Quinn is my favorite kind of hero. A rough and tumble guy that is sensitive and a heart of gold.
This family is everything a great family needs to be. The writing had me in tears and I felt all sorts of emotions through the book. This was a fantastic read!
