Katy Evans Hi Mariam,
Books 4 and 5 were standalone so there is no need to read them before LEGEND! Hope you enjoy. :)

Legend is a tale of guts and glory that grips your heart, tugging it every step of the way. This is not just a story but an escape where you dive in, head first, immersing yourself into this brilliant and beautiful book. Legend bleeds into your world, becoming one with you.

Legend consumed me from the very first page; I was all in. Fingers trembling while gripping the book or ereader. Heart pumping. Body shaking. Bated breathing. Eyes tearing. Mouth smiling. Legend, like the rest of Katy Evans'

It's the beginning of my work week tonight and I'm feeling pissy about it, quite frankly. Plus I just roasted some brussel sprouts...

What can I say about this book that hasn't been already said by others? Not much.

I expected it to be great, I mean we're talking about Katy Evans here. But this book topped my high expectations.

I can't believe it's the end of the series. I'm not a crier. I mean I do cry but rarely. And I bawled my eyes out today (it wasn't pretty). I cried sad and happy tears with my heart full of love for these characters. And you won't stay totally indifferent either if you love Remy and you enjoyed the first

Reese is Brooke’s cousin and has come to stay with the Tate’s for the fight season. She is there to help out with Racer, but also to work on herself. Reese has always struggled with her self-esteem and feeling like she belongs. Maverick is fighting to belong now, to prove himself. Reese and Maverick meet at the gym and form a connection. Their connection is quick and I believe it’s because they can see a piece of each other in the other.

Maverick is a fighter, but most of his fighting isn’t in

I've been waiting for this final book for so long and now that it's out, I'm so happy that we get such an amazing ending to this series. I even shred a tear ot two, not kidding. The whole plot is fantastic and there was surprisingly very low drama, which I liked very much. Also, there was not one character that I found annoying or dislikeable and that's saying a lot!

Legend was a powerful, heart-wrenching, beautiful well-written story.

This book grabbed me from page one and refused to let go until I read the last word. I knew even before finishing the first chapter that this story would undoubtedly end up becoming another instant favorite of mine.

What an explosive ending to a wonderful series!!! Katy Evans did a beautiful job of ending her series on top!! I am sad to say goodbye to all of these beloved characters; but I am super happy she didn't drag the series on until us readers became bored!!! As it is, I will never ever forget Remington Tate, and now I will also never forget Maverick!!! I didn't think anyone could even come close to Remy....but Maverick gave him some wicked competition!

Legend is the sixth and final book in the REAL series. I know, it makes me want to cry too. I love this series and it’s one of the first NA romance series I’ve picked up. Remy is one of the original book boyfriends I fell in love with and I’m so happy it kind of circles back to him with this final novel.

This is Maverick’s story and just when you thought your heart belong to Remy, Mav will try to steal some of it away. Legend is a sweet and wonderful tale about overcoming p

INCREDIBLE!!! Katy Evans brings it, giving you an ending that is heart pounding and absolutely beautiful. Mav will steal your heart and own it. I LOVED this book so much. Full review to come closer to release, but this is a MUST READ!

I was so excited to read  this book because the  REAL  series is one of my favorites. And I’m so glad it did not disappoint! Legend is highly addictive, riveting, and well written romance. The hero and heroine's chemistry is magnetic and explosive. It truly ended the series with a bang!

Déjà vu...that's what I felt many times in reading this story...but all in a good way, a very good way. Maverick is essentially Remy 2.0 without being bipolar, however, he's just as intense In. All. Ways.

Reese is Brooke's cousin who's staying with them and taking care of Racer. She's also there to better herself and what better way than to immerse herself in the gym scene. And that's where she met Maverick.

I love Katy Evans and this series was simply amazing and breathtaking and wonderful. I loved every minute of each book and I just hope she will keep on writing in this manner for me to forever read her stories.

I suck at reading books from a series in order.. I know.. I have to stick to the order that the author crafted for it, but when you have tons of books in your list, you want to read them all and you kind of forget their order. So, “Legend” is the last book I’ve read from this series, altho

This has been a busy week for me. But I could not help stealing a few moments during the day and long into the night for 'Legend'. The sexual tension, the growth of relationship and total devotion to each other, is what made this romance, perfect for me.

I was terrified of reading this book. Real is one of my favorite books of all time and Remy has been at the top of my personal book boyfriend list for years. I was afraid of being disappointed by this book. I was scared it would ruin the entire series for me and I was petrified it would ruin Remy for me forever.

But my fears were all unfounded as this was a perfect ending to a great series and though Maverick didn’t manage to knock Remy from his place
