Series: REAL #6
Author: Katy Evans
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Can love really conquer all?—Book Six in Katy Evans’s breakout New York Times bestselling series that began with REAL.
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 Mav 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.
Oh, Katy Evans, you have done it once again with Legend! I thought it couldn't get more passionate than Remy's story, but I was truly mistaken because the passion Maverick had to give was MIND BLOWING!
When I started reading I was trying to figure out why no one wanted anything to do with Maverick, and then, as I started piecing it together, I felt as if a ton of bricks fell on me and I couldn't believe it!! I thought, ‘Oh Hell no, that can't be....’, but alas it was, and I knew it was going to be a heck of a roller coaster ride!
Reese just wanted to find herself and what better way than to go work for her cousin, Brooke, and Brooke’s husband, Remy... Well, little did she know, that decision would change her life forever.
The first time Reese caught Maverick's attention had me fanning myself and my thighs hurting from extreme clenching!! Maverick's had women, yet Reese had a different aura—one had him looking forward to seeing her although he made sure keep his mind focused on the prize that he was after. But... could it be that his prize might have changed?!
One thing is for sure, Maverick won my heart completely with his determination to make a name for himself, but also because he proved to, and showed, everyone that he was NOTHING like the one they compared him to.
Maverick's story was full of passion, love, redemption and acceptance! Reese, oh Reese, how I wished I was her so I could have just a little taste of the passion Maverick gave her. This will definitely be a re-read for me!
"I’m soaked. My panties are soaked, my folds are soaked, soaked for him, and he says, “I could drink you, Reese, and never get thirsty.”"
"It’s like being on a diet and craving what you can’t have. Exactly. This is why I’m so . . . warm lately. Maverick Cage oozes sex, and I’ve lived a sexless life. He’s like the Snickers bar I haven’t had in weeks."
"“I’m on fire when I look at you,” he says, his voice reverent and his gaze electric on me. “You decimated me just now.”"
"Maverick is standing in the same spot, and when I catch him staring possessively at my ass, it makes me start to love the Himalayas like never before."
