~REVIEW🖋~
The Quick and Dirty: A fun refresh of the bad boy (ex cage fighter) and good girl (NYC socialite and business owner) trope.

Gabriel Legend went legit when he took his winnings from his underground fighting to open up a club. When the grand opening tanks due to a shooting, his  little brother forces his hand into enlisting NYC socialite and business owner Scarlett Priest’s help. Sparks fly when they meet even though they come from different sides of the tracks. As they get to know one another, they realize that beneath the mask (<— MM fans, see what I did there? ) they both wear, they have more in common than they think. Scarlett may have started off working to save Gabriel’s club but they may end up saving each other instead.

This is usually where I gush over Meghan’s work and then my quick and dirty review gets really long. I’m going to try to bullet point it this time.

  • Pace: Slower burn than some other MM books but flows organically and leaves you both hot at the collar and devastated at the end. Epic cliffie as usual!
  • Character development: Excellent – she makes you inherently understand the inner workings of the characters without “explaining” it to you. Even the ancillary characters are well flushed out. Side note: Flynn racing for pinks had me squealing! I so hope she gets her own story!
  • Chemistry: Again slow burn but seriously hot and tangible chemistry. It’s relatable – it’s instant but they work through it so it’s
    believable and understandable.

Bottom line: If you read contemporary romance, this is a very easy one clicker. You won’t regret it (unless you hate cliff hangers, in which case wait until January and binge read the entire trilogy at once).

~BLURB~
From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a new deliciously dangerous alpha hero in The Fall of Legend, the first book in the brand new and utterly addictive Legend trilogy.

We come from two different worlds.
I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.
I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.
Our paths never should have crossed.
We never should have met.
That doesn’t change the facts.
I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.
Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.
Burn in hell to have a single night.
Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will.
If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.
