Real is the first book that made me fall in love with Katy Evans, and it is bittersweet that Legend is now the last book in the series. Ms. Evans made me fall in love with romance centered on the underground fighting ring. She was also my first introduction in to a different style of romance, where the male character was so raw, primal, and sexually provocative. I will always treasure this series, and love every book in it.
In Legend, we get Reese Dumas and Maverick Cage's love story. Reese is spending the summer with her cousin Brooke, Brooke's husband Remy, and their sweet little boy Racer. She was brought up sheltered as an only child, and is using this opportunity to learn independence, as well as figure out who she is as a person. Reese is very close to the Tate family, and is helping them by taking on a lot of Racer's care, while his father finishes up his last season of underground fighting before he retires.
Reese has a crush on Miles, her good friend back home, but has been friend-zoned. Therefore, she decides to use her unlimited access to a gym membership and healthy lifestyle, to get her body in to tip top shape; in order to get Miles a chance to see her in a different light. When Reese begins working out, she meets Maverick Cage, a dedicated and ambitious fighter determined to break in to the underground fighting circuit. These two share an instant visceral attraction, and as they get to know one another, they forge a strong connection. However, there are obstacles directly in their path to being together....
It was such a wonderful blast from the past being reunited with Brooke, Remy, and the rest of the crew. These two have come a long way, but the love and passion they share with one another has not dimmed. Now we have Reese and Maverick to root for! Reese is full of insecurity. However, she is a loving, nurturing, loyal, and family-oriented woman coming into her own. Maverick reminded me of a young Remy in many ways. He's determined, never gives up when he wants something. He has abandonment issues due to an absentee father, and needs to prove to himself that he's worth something.
Reese and Maverick were crazy about one another, and as a reader, I could feel their anticipation, desperation, and passionate need for one another. There were a lot of butterflies fluttering in my tummy, whenever Maverick entered the story. I always fall for the broken bad boys with a heart of gold. These two couldn't get enough of each other, and I felt like I was in a constant day dream whenever I got the privilege of seeing their relationship develop. Ms. Evans breathes life in to her characters, and they always feel so real to me. Another special aspect of this story is when we get to see Remy take on a mentoring and leadership role with Maverick. Having these two fighters on the page at the same time, was enough cause to give a woman a heart attack!
I loved Legend! It was an excellent ending to an epic series. I will miss all of these characters tremendously. I literally cried at the end of the book, because I was sad to see the Real series come to an end. I give, Legend, by Katy Evans, 5 A Kindled Fire, Fierce Passions, Thrilling Underground Circuit, The Best Mentor, Being Your Own Man, Filled Stars!!! The Real Series is a bucket list type of read, and holds a special place as one of my all-time favorites!
"Dragging my hand over my face, I pull my phone back out and try to focus on the man I need to beat.
And I think of that nice girl who doesn't want to be nice. A girl who wants to be unforgettable and doesn't realize, she already is."
MAVERICK!!!! I think I'm in LOVE. Katy Evans has created a gorgeous, sensitive beast of a man. Another legend is born.
Legend is the kind of Katy Evans book that I love, filled with passion, emotion, tons of sexy times and a deep emotional connection between the two main characters. This book goes back to the roots of the series, an lonely underdog fighting against the world, and a sweet, kind woman who is swept away by his passion.
Maverick "the Avenger" Cage is an outcast in the underground fighting world. But he knows he can be the best if only someone would give him a chance and train with him. The best he can do is a down-and-out trainer named Oz. Reese is Remy's wife Brooke's cousin, and is traveling with them on the fighting circuit while taking care of their son, Racer. She is a loner, shy, and never thinks someone like Maverick would be interested in her.
"I wanted to be understood, and I wanted to be known. And I wanted to be loved."
I LOVE a good underdog story and Legend fits the bill perfectly. There are no over-the-top characters here, just two people who are searching for something that they never had. And when Maverick and Reese get together, WOW!!!! Hello, new favorite book boyfriend!!
“Don’t go after her if you don’t think you can deserve her.” He hits me again and I block, then jab him. He eases back and prowls around. So do I.
“Deserve her first. Then go after her.”
Reese and Maverick have a forbidden romance at first, because Maverick is in training to ultimately fight Remington "Riptide" Tate and challenge him for the championship. And nothing will stand in his way. But the truth comes out and Reese must decide whose corner she is really in. There's no question that Maverick is all hers, and he is the kind of man that knows when he has found the woman for him. I loved that Reese is not perfect, and the author makes sure to point out her insecurities. This is the kind of book that Katy Evans does best, filled with fierce warmth, hotness and a brute of a hero with a heart of gold. Maverick is EVERYTHING. I adored Legend and it is the perfect entry in the REAL series of books.
"He doesn’t say a word to me, but I can feel him. He’s all I feel. Everywhere."
1. Maverick is supposed to be lone wolf but while he was in NYC mysteriously out of nowhere he get a surprise visit from some friends from back home. What a coincidence they know everything about Reese?? Where did they come from?? When did he get in contact with these friends?? How did they know where to find him???
2. The closure between Reese and Miles was incomplete. I was expecting some kind of final words between them but we got nothing.
3. Also was Reese on some kind of birth control?? I don't think she was because in one sense Maverick wore a condom. All the other time they hookup there wasn't any mention of condom. So wasn't they worry about the possibility of pregnancy??
Overall a enjoyable and entertaining read.
