I've read the Thoughtless series and loved it. I did not read the Conversion series (doesn't appeal to me). So...Furious Rush. I really liked it. Let me preface this comment. I have read many many NAR books. I have my favorite authors, but others, I grew tired of the same ol' same ol' and dropped them from my TBR pile. I want MORE than the standard cookie cutter romance. It doesn't have to be much, I get it, I know what publishers and the NAR public want. I want a little variety, ok? Furious Rush did offer a little variety. It wasn't leaps and bounds, but enough to make me remember THIS book in the barrage of NAR stories.
Hayden and McKenzie "Kenzie" are motorcycle racers.... on opposite teams, forbidden to have contact with each other or risk expulsion from their teams. There is mutual attraction, but for Kenzie, Hayden stands against everything she believes in.... or so she thinks. But somehow, Hayden makes Kenzie a better racer, and she recognizes this and wants to use it to help save her Dad's failing business, Cox Racing, for her success alone may do the trick. Hayden has his own reasons for needing to win. For months, they meet secretly, and grow to know each other and both become better racers. There is a seed of drama in the story. Someone is messing with the bikes, but who? And why? As for an ending, don't expect the usual HEA ending. It is, of sorts, but not everything will be tied up in a pretty little bow, as sooooo many stories end. There is uncertainty in the future, there is unfinished business, not everything turns out as planned. At first I thought I smelled a sequel, but upon finishing, I'm thinking otherwise. It is best to let it stand alone.
Now, ladies, do not expect another Kellan Kyle. But in my opinion, I liked Kenzie far better than Kiera. While Kenzie is a little immature, she has more balls than most men.
Sasha, the narrator, I think did a fine job of narrating the story. My only peeve was HookUp's voice. He was annoying, but I think that was the point. And sometimes too many people in the story sounded like they were from Brooklyn NY. But each character did have their own voice that was distinquishable from the others. So a solid 4 stars for story and narrator.

Love the book and enjoy S. C Stephens stories. But ending of this one left some unanswered questions. So did some digging since audible didn't show any 2nd book to the series. There is a 2nd book that will help with the questions, but it's currently in print and ebook only. It's called Dangerous Rush. So until there is a audio version of the book, you will have to read the printed one to get those answers....
I was hooked from the moment this book started, and I couldn't put it down.
I am not a speedway fan but the story draws you in and the author descriptive writing had me there in the race, giving the feelings you might have if you yourself was there. The story around the main characters was brilliant.
I definitely recommend listening to this book. I love the way this author writs and hope there is a squeal as it needed leaving in answers.
