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.
When I read this,
all I could feel was pride. I was proud of Maverick, Reese, Oz, and of course
Remy. As much as this was Mavericks and Reese’s story, Remy played an integral
part, which just further solidified my love for him.
I absolutely, unequivocally
loved this book. The characters were complex and had their own issues, but it
didn’t stop them from speaking their minds. I feel in love with Reese and
Maverick probably just as quickly as they fell for each other. Nothing in life
is perfect and whole both had demons in their past, they were both able to
support and love each other as they are. They were cast aside, placed in the
friend zone and ostracized, but they found and understood each other. They were
made for each other and with each battle (mentally, physically, emotionally)
that they went through, it further confirmed, they were “with” each other.
before the fights, I felt. The love between Reese and Maverick, Remy and Brooke,
all of their love for Racer, it just hit me right in the feels. What an inspirational
and powerful story. I cannot say enough great things about Legend. It is
definitely just that…..a Legend.
