Review: Legend by Katy Evans


My Rating: TOP FAV OF 2016

Title: Legend 
Author: Katy Evans 
Release Date: IT'S LIVE!!

Synopsis:
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.  

My Review:
Maverick AKA "the Avenger" was definitely a character I was not expecting from Katy Evans (explained later) . Let's start with Maverick's physical attributes:
1. He's HOT
2. He's DROP DEAD SEXY WITH ABS YOU JUST 'WANNA LICK ;)
3. His eyes were the color of cool steel
SO to sum it up I was bound to LOVE Katy Evan's new heart-stopping read no matter even if it did not have Tate (sigh) in it. Luckily, we were fortunate to have the power couple, Tate and Brooke, featured in this novel too.  
Now for the "explained later" part, as I was saying, Legend was tamer in the violence aspect than Real and Remy (books 1 and 3 in the Real series). After re-reading Real, I was expecting arguments, yelling, maybe even a kidnapping to take place in Legend. Real was marked one of my most emotional reads of 2013, and I came to find Legend was not like that at all. What I loved most about Real was that it kept me on the edge of my seat, almost as if you blinked an entire dialogue much needed to the story, were to pass you. Legend may not have had the violence aspect to the same extreme as the first novel in the series, but it did have me falling quicker in love with Jackson than I did with Remy. Jackson and Reese had a relationship that best could be described as easy. I loved how quickly Jackson took to Reese. The connection between the two is undeniably strong, regardless of Reese's fighting for it not to be. Towards the end of the book we find out more of Reese's back story as to why she choose to stay with her cousin Brooke and Remy (OH and Racer!) I was in for a shock of all the things my mind came up with while reading the story it was not that which made the story line even more delightful. 
The moments between Racer and Jackson had me swooning and awwwing. As well as Jackson's consistent chasing after Reese, I think I can say I've surrendered my heart once again to a fictional character.
