The Fall of Legend (Legend Trilogy Book 1) Kindle Edition
We come from two different worlds.
I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.
I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.
Our paths never should have crossed.
We never should have met.
That doesn’t change the facts.
I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.
Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.
Burn in hell to have a single night.
Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will.
If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.
The Fall of Legend is the first book of the Legend Trilogy. Legend and Scarlett's story continues in House of Scarlett (book 2) and concludes in The Fight for Forever (book 3). All three books are available now!
Scarlett Priest and Gabriel Legend absolutely IGNITE the pages of this book. High action and scorching hot chemistry are the trademark of an amazing Meghan March book and The Fall of Legend delivers that in spades!!--Goodreads Reviewer
The Fall of Legend grabbed ahold of me from the very beginning and it still has me in its clutches! I can't stop thinking about this one.--Nerdy Dirty & Flirty, Erin

Intense - heartbreaking - visceral - overwhelming feelings so all encompassing that I stayed immersed in this book all day! I couldn’t stop — nor did I want to! Everything about this book will consume all of your senses. From the inconsiderate boyfriend, to the best friends, to Legend himself! Prepare to be as blown away as Scarlet was throughout this book! Holy hotness Batman! Legend is a former fighter turned club owner and Scarlet is the heiress child of a former model. Their first meeting is less than conventional and sets in motion the unstoppable force between them! A friend recommended this book to me and I’m so excited she did because now I absolutely have to read the entire trilogy! Love, love, loved this book so much!!
How do you know you’re reading a Meghan March romance?
A hot, broken, primal hero who lives in the gray area of morality
An intelligent, attractive heroine who saves the hero from himself
Plenty of plot twists and turns, moments of angst and heat meant to build your voracious appetite for story
A story that keeps you at the edge of your seat
A sensual, “fire on the page” chemistry between the hero and heroine
A cliffhanger that leaves you aching for more
And March’s newest book, the first of the Legend trilogy, The Fall of Legend, holds all these cards and more.
I love Scarlett. From her name to her style, she’s a heroine to emulate. She wants a messy life. How many romance heroines are driven to achieve that? Typically, their stories are wrapped up with a neat bow. Instead, March creates Scarlett with layers. At surface level, she appears put together, beautiful, iconic. However, Scarlett’s depth lies in her want for more, to be more than society’s perceptions of her. From her business to her home to her friends, Scarlett is a real person trapped in the life of a socialite. This dichotomy coupled with “daddy issues” often drives her to perfection. Yet, March allows us to see her true depth through her response to Legend and her insistence on pursuing the messy in life. Honestly, Scarlett’s character is the essence of this story.
Additionally, I love that Gabriel can’t help himself around Scarlett. He exists under her spell. There is nothing better than an alpha male hero who loses his control. It generally leads to the fireworks of the story. He’s caustic, a loner with a small group of friends because his past haunts him. This is a perfect storm for his undoing and his eventual renaissance in later books. And it will be glorious, but not quite yet. Something about Gabriel Legend gets under your skin, and he leaves a permanent mark.
Scarlet and Gabriel’s chemistry is palpable and electric. It jumps off the page like an electric current. And it’s clear from the beginning of the story. March uses this to create the tension of their romance. They struggle to be together, and the reader feels the profundity of their situation. To me, that’s fundamental to a romance where opposites attract. March could teach a master class in writing this type of chemistry because it belies all of her books. These two, Scarlett and Legend, are all need, want, and lust, and it is incredibly hot.
However, most important to this story, is its message that twines through Scarlett and Gabriel’s connection. It’s this message of living a messy life. On the outside, Scarlett’s life seems perfect, but it isn’t. She doesn’t bemoan that fact, though. Instead, she’s seeking after the “real” life. She recognizes the ability to complete this through Gabriel. It’s March’s reminder that the curated life on social media or in life doesn’t mean anything if we’re not “living” it fully. In our society and time, it’s an important message to consider. This message is the power that drives this particular story, and I cannot wait for its revelation and resolution in the next two books of the series.
This is what I know. You can count on Meghan March’s books to grab your heart, heat your blood, and keep you coming back for more. The Fall of Legend is this type of book. Just be ready to wait a bit for Scarlett and Gabriel Legend to find their happy ending. You won’t have to wait long, but you’ll be anxiously awaiting its arrival.
Meghan March has long been one of my favorite authors and I was so excited about the new Legend Trilogy. After reading the first book, The Fall of Legend, my anticipation for the remaining books in the trilogy—and let’s face it, my love for her words—just quadrupled. You see, Meghan March absolutely NEVER disappoints. And I do mean never. Regardless of where her storylines take readers, you can be assured that the journey is going to be angsty, sexy and supremely entertaining. And let me be clear, The Fall of Legend? It was all of that and so much more.
Q: I don’t know who Legend is to everyone else, but to me, he’s a beacon, drawing me in.
Over the years I’ve spent blogging, I’ve learned that Meghan’s work is one that I can depend on to capture my attention from the get-go and hold it until the final page has been turned. And even knowing this, I started reading The Fall of Legend at nearly midnight…and stayed up all night to finish the story. (The extra coffee necessary to survive the lack of sleep was well worth it!) Did I expect a cliffhanger? Absolutely! Meghan March is the Queen of the Cliffy for a reason…but regardless, this book was a nonstop ride leading me straight into heartache and putting my kindle in jeopardy the closer and closer I got to that final page. And boy, did I want to throw my kindle after I read that final sentence! Trust me, you’ll be poised on the brink too once you pick this up and get sucked in!!!! The storyline is one that captured my heart, just as it broke it. Gabriel Legend is a hero that will turn your brain to mush and your panties into a lake!😉 Scarlett Priest never stood a chance!
Q: Did I just put it out there to the world that I want this man? It wouldn’t be a lie. But that’s not something I would normally do. Not the perfectly polite Scarlett Priest.
Except I just did.
The Fall of Legend offered readers an epic slow-burn romance with characters that will warm your heart and a storyline that was incredibly original! Meghan March is a skilled storyteller who wrote a beautiful contemporary romance which is meticulously arranged to keep readers completely spellbound. The Fall of Legend sweep me away to NYC by an author who pens stories about cities with an amazing eye—Meghan truly accentuates the beautiful and glosses over the grimy—she depicted a city I’ve yet to travel and nevertheless, with the skill of her pen, creates a world that I feel exceedingly familiar with; it’s as if I’d lived there all my life. Legend and Scarlett are sure to entice anyone and combined? They make up a dynamic partnership that will long live on in the eyes of Meghan’s followers. While there is little that I can offer about the story itself to keep this review free of spoilers, I can say this is an excellent book to pick up if you are new to Meghan March’s work—or if you’re like me, a longtime fan and avid reader looking for your next five-star read. One-click now before The House of Scarlett releases so that you’re caught up and ready to dive in!
Q: Legend isn’t a normal man. I’ve seen what he can do. He’s capable of ending a cage match in just seconds with a dominant display of brutality and skill.
