Legend by Katy Evans REVIEW

Maverick “the Avenger” Cage wants to rise to the top and become a legend in the ring. Though he keeps his identity well guarded, he’s known on the fighting circuit as the new kid with a chip on his shoulder and a tattoo on his back that marks him as trouble. He’s got a personal score to settle with the Underground’s one and only Remington “Riptide” Tate.

As Mav trains, he meets a young girl—the only other new person in the town–and sparks fly. When things get heated between them, he finds out she’s none other than Reese Dumas, the cousin of Remington Tate’s wife. A girl who’s supposed to root against him and a girl he’s supposed to stay away from.

But Maverick fights for the woman in his heart, and the monsters in his blood. The world’s eyes are on them and the victor will go down in history as the ultimate fighting champion; the ultimate LEGEND.

* LEGEND is the 6th and final installment of the REAL series, but it can also be read as standalone or after the three Remington and Brooke books (Real/Mine/Remy.)

Review

★★★ 3 Stars ★★★

Maverick “the Avenger” Cage is the new fighter in town wanting in on the Underground fighting scene, he is a force to be reckoned with, but because of his family connections, nobody wants to take him on to train.

Nineteen year old Reece Dumas is spending the summer trying to find herself, working full-time as a nanny for her cousin Brooke and husband Remy Tate, the current champion of the Underground.

Whilst trying to work out what it is she wants in life, and who she really is as a person, Reece falls for the quiet and brooding fighter, who seems so forbidden and off-limits.

For the most part, I enjoyed this book, but I felt like the writing was a bit stilted, and it just didn’t flow right for me like the other books in this series. Also, things were left unexplained, for example her friend Miles comes to visit and but disappears without a mention half way through their night out, never to be spoken of again. Another thing that bothered me was Brooke – I assume she was working with Remy all day whilst Reese was looking after little Racer, but it wasn’t actually spoken of and to me it felt like something was missing from the overall story.

It was a slow burn, and not a whole lot happens, Maverick and Reece are not exactly big on dialogue, but it was a steady read with likeable characters.

What I appreciated most, was the quiet and sweet relationship between Maverick and Reece, it was almost juvenile in a way, they were like a pair of teens, but it worked for me because it was so genuine and cute.

“You have the world’s prettiest face,
One the prettiest body. With the prettiest smile. And a voice I think of when it’s all quiet.”

Whilst this wasn’t my favourite book in the series, it ended on a great note and I was very pleased with the outcome.

Legend is part of an overall series, each book focusing on different characters. Told in dual POV.
