Katy Evans has finally finished her Real series and I'm so sad about that.... but happy too because it's been the perfect series from book 1 til this, the end to it all - but boy have they all been worth the time, the credits, the sleepless nights and the emotional roller coasters that each one has put me on.
Reese has come to live with her Cousin Brooke and Remy to look after their little boy while Remy 'Riptide' is training and fighting - but she has also come to get fit, lose extra pounds and find herself. But what she finds along the way is Maverick - a solitary handsome figure obviously alone and in desperate need of her help so Reese takes very slow steps to aid him. They are both characters of few words but their heated glances say everything and their first words to each other, when they do eventually speak, are tentative, touching, shy, wary and heartfelt and, once in each others arms, they click, find their soul-mate and peace. However, first there's a slow, and oh so sweet, build-up that finally blossoms into a beautiful touching romance where all they want or need is each other.... and of course the chance to compete in, and then win, the MMA Title. But Maverick has a bitter legacy to overcome too which brings with it resentment, animosity and angst as he tries to prove, over and over again, that he is not his Father's son.
Oh, this listen was so addictive because both Reese and Maverick were such nice characters and Maverick proved to everyone that he deserved to fight - he was true to himself and true to Reese who, along with me, fell hard for this vulnerable, loving, kind and deep thinking man. And Maverick was also a good friend to his washed-up drunk Trainer who had hit the 'self destruct' button. Reese and Maverick were both crazy for one another and desperately wanted to be together and that came across so well that I couldn't help but be drawn into their plight and mesmerized by its wonderful outcome. Dual POV's and the narrators did a great job in bringing each character, and the scenes, to life which increased my enjoyment.
Worth a credit? I have spent six credits on this awesome series, regret none of them and only wish there were more to follow but alas Katy Evans has cut me off so I have to go cold turkey from her particular brand of hot, sweaty, possessive Alphas..... boo hoo!!!

I will admit I'm the minority with not loving Legend. For me it was just ok. I loved maverick. I liked his back story and what he overcame. His struggles to not let who he came from determine the strong confident man he wants to be..I did not like Reese. For me she was just blah...I found myself rolling my eyes with her. It took me several days to finish this book.. It just didn't hold my attention. I enjoyed catching up with the Tates and I'm glad that though I struggled with Legend I did finish it.

So intense and sexy! you'll fall in love with Maverick and Reece as they find themselves and each other.
I loved this book! Remy and Brooke are the main secondary characters so we get to hear the continuation of their story. The main characters - Maverick and Reese are two amazing characters. Reese is on a mission to find herself and Maverick is on a mission to prove he's nothing like his father was in the MMA ring. Two powerful characters that take you on one incredible journey!
