Remington Wilde had heartbreak written all over him.
He was the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen.
When I looked into his midnight eyes,
I saw a happy ending I’d never dared to dream of.

I was seventeen the first time he asked for my heart,
I didn’t hesitate to hand it over.
In exchange, he gave me the best summer of my life.
He was my first everything.

Chelé-----4 The Love of Books
All Legends are lies but Dylan Allen is the truth!

I was HIGHLY anticipating The Legend after finishing The Legacy. Dylan Allen has a way of not only making you fall in love with her main heroes and heroines but also any secondary characters she mentions as well become just as intriguing. Remi didn't have the biggest part in the Legacy but you could already feel this strong pull towards him.

The Legend is a mesmerizing, adventurous, world wind romance with angsty feels, devastating lies, secrets

I think this is one of my favorite covers EVER! It matches the characters and the theme of the book perfectly. 🖤💜

Dylan Allen has an amazing talent! Her books are beautifully written and never fail to take the reader on a journey. Her characters are real, lively, and jump off the page. The story is well plotted and delivered in an manner that made me feel as though I were experiencing it versus just reading the words.

Remi has been a favorite of mine since the very first page

Holding my breath while reading a book is usually something that’s saved for parts that hold much anticipation, for parts that are mind-blowing. It usually happens sporadically, right? For me, The Legend was that through and through. And the only “remi”dy was more of Dylan Allen’s words - the whirlwind of this story unraveling with each satiating word.

The relationship between Remi and Kal is riddled with complication, yet so very simple. And it is EXACTLY THAT which took my heart away. The way t

This book is so dang good!

I have been waiting for Remi's book since I read The Legacy and I was totally worth the wait!

I love a second chance love story and this book just nailed it!
I loved the tender sweet love between Remi and Kat when they were young adults.
I absolutely lived for the angst and the heartache and I swooned over the chemistry between these two characters.

This is beyond beautiful! I enjoyed the first book but this book... Dylan Allen took it to a whole new level. I was hooked to

The Legend is the second installment of Rivers Wilde Series. It’s a series of standalone. No need to read in order but keep in mind that characters from book 1, The Legacy, will be part of The Legend.

In The Legend we have sexy, cocky as hell and beautiful Remington “Remi” Wilde and inspiring, alluring and gorgeous Kalilah Greer romance. Remi, if you already read book 1, you know he is the heir of the Wilde family. One of the two most powerful and influentials families in Texas. This is a friend

The Legend of Remington Wilde is a story you do not want to miss!

The amazing saga continues in this second book of the Rivers Wilde series. While this can be read as a standalone, there will be spoilers for book 1 so I recommend reading The Legacy first. There is more family drama with intrigue and plot twists you never saw coming. There is pain and betrayal but there is also a story of young love turned second chance love story that will melt your heart and have you swooning!

I do not know what to make out of this book. The blurp and the 30% in, promising a full angst, full drama romance. But the structure of the story is so mess up. I feel like watching a soap opera being played without ends.

The plot is unstructure. Its like the author troes to jam everything into 1 book. There is the story of the family legacy, the romance, the back and forth between Remi and Kal. Its all confusing. And the answers are all jam packe at the end. Then rush ending.

I’m completely in love with this story. For me Dylan Allen is a master in creating timeless love stories that leave readers in total admiration for her talent. The kind of love presented in The Legend is one of those most likely ordinary people would like to experience in their lives. Beautiful, honest, extremely deep, lasting up to the grave. Fits more to the world of dreams than reality because how is it possible that it survived after so many obstacles?

When I met Remi in the first book, I totally fell in love with him. After seeing that his story was a second-chance romance, it heightened my excitement even more. The Legend is a beautiful and sexy contemporary romance about characters who are from different worlds but fit so perfectly together. The chemistry between Remi and Kal was smoking hot and I really felt their passion. The first half of the book takes place in the past when the

“The Legend is a love story. But it’s also a cautionary tale. It tells you to love deeply, believe in happily ever after, but don’t try to live anyone’s life but your own.
That will be your undoing.
All legends are lies.

Couldn't have said it better myself!!
It's an inspirational story. Drives home the point again and again that you don't have to accept the situation handed to you by life and circumstances. Do everything to change your destiny. Drive hard, chart your ow

Not going to write a proper review, these are just some thoughts I had overall as I read the book:

↳Started off strong but unfortunately the writing got weaker as I continued reading, the story got choppy and just became a big old mess. It jumps around too much, to the point of confusion. And I’m not just talking about time jumps, I’m talking about jumps in actions and location. Like one page they are just meeting again for the first time and saying hello and then I turn the page to the

"Every time we kiss, I feel weightless. Like if he wasn't holding onto me, I'd defy gravity and fly away."

After reading The Legacy I was so damn curious about Remi and his lost love which made me so excited for The Legend. And I must say, Dylan Allen delivered once again a story that warms your heart, has your heart in knots, breaks it and puts it back together even more beautifully.

I read slowly, because I didn’t want to finish this book.
It’s a love story and the characters are perfect. I think one book for Remi isn’t enough!
Just wow!

We met Remington in the first book & he was extremely likable in that one, This book continues the family connections but gives you Remi’s story and let me tell you, he is absolutely divine. Between his upbringing and his mother he could have been a rich jerk but he was not at all that way. He knew what he wanted & what he didn’t want and seemed to really stick to it even with all the pressure of his family’s wealth.

So freakin good if not better than The Legacy..and I gave that one 5 stars as well. I’m a sucker for childhood friends/romance, and second chance love. I fell just as hard for Kalilah, as I did for Remi. Remi captured my heart and soul with his handsome looks, dirty mouth, and romantic soul. Evil intentions tore them apart, but nothing can keep true love from being together. The things he says makes me blush and squirm at the same time. Not to mention the fireworks that the book started with com ...more

I was half way thru this book till I got to her having a kid with another man. And then the book lost me. That screams drama and I don’t read for that. So I skipped till the end and it’s a series. Why didn’t I notice that. Ugh can’t do those. Oh and there is cheating as well. 🤨

I won an ARC of this book in a readers group and I fell in love! This is the first book I’ve read by Dylan Allen and y’all it was amazing! Very well written, beautiful writing style, the story and the characters are deep and keeps you in. The romance sucks you in and next thing you know you’ve read the entire book in one day! I can’t wait to read more from this author!

Painful family secrets, broken dreams and years without each other, can true love overcome these things? The Legend tells the heartbreaking and beautiful story of Kal and Remi. Their love is a given fact, but the road to their Happily Ever After isn’t the easiest one. I adore this book, plain and simple.
“That summer, we found something special with each other. Something, we’d never find with anyone else again. I was just a kid, but I knew it in my bones, then. I still know it, now.”

They say legends never die and in the case of Remington Wilde that will always ring true! My soul will never forget the story of Remi’s and Kals love! Their journey was one full of pain, loss and lies! The water in Rivers Wilde is muddier than it looks and Remi’s journey to the truth will hopefully lead him to love he’s always desired!!

Remi was so damn dreamy. Both when he was a teenager and an adult. He owned me. Kal fought for herself, what she stood for and her beliefs. Such a fierce woman. I really enjoyed their first meeting in the library and what slowly became a strong friendship and all consuming love. That first half of the book was fabulous storytelling. The reason for their many years apart because of lack of communication wasn’t my favorite part. It was a stupid reason. Luckily their strong chemistry and connection ...more

I’ve been dying for Remi’s story ever since the tiniest of glimpses of him, and Dylan Allen didn’t disappoint with this hero.

Remi is just swoonworthy with a capital S. I love who he is with Kal. I love that at his core he is honorable and wants a real love built on friendship. But I also die over that infamous dirty mouth of his.

Kal is an interesting heroine, one who comes from less than respectable background with her mom, which ultimately s

This was one of the most breathtakingly raw stories of love I've ever read! This book delivers such a powerful punch, I know it will stick with me for a long time.
