Becoming a Legend by Sarah Robinson 
Publisher: Loveswept (December 13, 2016)
Series: Kavanagh Legends, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

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.

Pat's Review:

This is a very enjoyable series about the Kavanaugh family, their gym, Legends, and MMA fighters. It can be read as a stand alone, but the first two books in the series are a great read as well.

Kane Kavanaugh, with the fight name Killer, has been training for the fight that could send his career off the charts. His brother Rory, a fighter till a career-ending injury, and his twin Kieran, are helping with his training. Kane has been known as a "love 'em and leave 'em" guy; his career is too important to get involved in a relationship. Both Rory and Kieran have found the loves of their life, but Kane is not ready. But, he is very attracted to his soon-to-be sister-in-law Fiona's best friend, Nora Hannigan. She's beautiful, smart, and very feisty. They enjoy throwing insults at each other; Nora is a student about to graduate with a Psych degree, she is doing an internship at a youth center and has some family obligations that are about to bring her to her knees. After spending a very hot, sexy night together they both know they're fighting a losing battle. The attraction is too much.

Nora's secrets are dangerous, and she knows getting involved with Kane could be dangerous to him and his career. Kane realizes that "no strings" isn't what he wants with Nora. But his fight career must take all his energy and concentration. Add some suspense and danger and this story will grab you and not let go.
