There are just some books that bring a whole new definition to the term “book hangover.” Becoming a Legend by Sarah Robinson is one of those books. It gives all the feels and hours later, I am still living in the Kavanagh world.
Oh, these two! Right out of the gate, they have such a dialogue with each other. Kade has it bad for Nora, and Nora rebuffs him like it’s her day job! Unfortunately for Nora, there is something about him. I just knew they were going to throw down eventually (both in and out of the bedroom, that is). It’s simply a matter of when, and it happens quite quickly. At first, I worried that the plot might stall out.
I was so glad to be wrong.
Their chemistry is off the charts, both complimenting each other so well. Nora is a sweet character, but her mother (ugh! her horrid mother!) makes her feel unworthy. I’ll be honest and say I have never cried so much throughout a book. Nora’s history is heartbreaking, and Kade’s honesty and openness are just what she needs. Kade breaks right through those barriers of hers. (He’s secretly the biggest softie!)
Kane pulled her grip from the sheets and intertwined their fingers. He traced the edge of her ear with his tongue, and his breath warmed her neck as he whispered, “Anchor yourself to me, Nora. Nothing else. Only me.”
See what I mean? Such sweet, intimate moments where Kade completely steals my heart! I would give an I just love this book” sigh and then the sex would be steaming hot followed by another, “Awww, he’s just so sweet!”
But Nora definitely holds her own, and they are well matched. Kade can be a little bit of a bad boy and instead of getting on his case about it, she accepts it and gets a lot more confident and playful than she has with other men. Their banter was laugh-out-loud funny. In one part, Kade offers to help Nora with her studies:
Her eyes flickered down to his lips, then back up to meet his gaze. She straightened her shoulders and exhaled. “Let me guess, you’ll quiz me, and for each wrong answer I give, I’ll have to take off something I’m wearing?”
Kane’s mouth parted and his eyes widened as he considered the image she’d just painted for him. “Hell, Kitty, I was genuinely offering to help, but your idea is so much better. Let’s go with that.”
One of my favorite scenes involves a reference to The Princess Bride. They’re both secretly a little nerdy and quirky, and I love it! It had me giggling like a loon and grinning at their antics.
And I was astounded by how forward they both were. They communicated, and I loved that there weren’t any misunderstandings. They had each other’s back. They know what they want and when they make up their minds to go after it, it is electric.
They are electric.
This book had it all. This was the first book in the Kavanagh Legends series that I have read, and I have already ordered the previous two. I recommend this book so hard, and I dare you not to fall for the Kavanagh brothers.
I know I have.
