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.
Falling in love felt wri

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

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

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

4.25 stars

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

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!!

Kal is an amazing woman and one of my fave Dylan heroines. She carries herself with such grace and finds a way to pull through! Her and Remi from the start were

“All Legends are lies.”

Holy! Wow! The Legend is absolutely phenomenal! This book is everything I want in a book. There angst, there’s emotions, hot steamy sex and swoon worthy months.

Remington “Reno” “The Legend” Wild is a stronger, prideful, tall dark and handsome sex on legs alpha man. Where Kal is strong, and determined. She tries to over come and be better then where we came from. She puts Remi in his place and puts his ego in check.

Dylan freaking Allen is seriously a majestic being that was put on this earth to brings us all the magical words. She is seriously a unicorn in my book.

I was highly anticipating Remi’s story since I first met him in The Legacy. He had a certain hypnotic pull to the reader. Allen has a way with her writing that will make you fall madly and insanely in love with her characters. I was hypnotized by the love these characters had for one another. Remi’s words were simply fiery perfection. Here is a

"I've lived my entire adult life in service of living up to the legend they built in my father's name."

Remi's life was never his own. Being the oldest of three siblings, Remi's destiny was written for him. He was to take over the family empire at any cost.

However, Remi had his own plans that include a spirited, book loving, Kal, but sometimes the plans of a teenage boy are not the reality of a man.

Kalilah's move to Rivers Wilde was suppose to be a fresh start for her and her mother. But old de

The Legend is a book that will make you late for work. So a word of caution from someone who’s already lived that... don’t do “just one more chapter” before work. It isn’t possible to stop. Every part of this book feels like it’s on the cusp of something big, we are reading The Legend, after all. There’s revelation after revelation and just when you’re starting to feel better Dylan Allen kicks out and trips you up... flat on your face. There’s something about the way this aut

OMG This book, seriously this book is AMAZING. The connection is so beautiful between Remi and Kal, i was hooked and so invested in them from the first few pages. It gave me all the feels instantly. The angst and hot sex scenes made it completely impossible to put down, it was so addictive. 

 I loved how Remi's complicated family story unravelled throughout their relationship over the years. As a couple they are just so meant to be.

In this book we get to understand more about the family secret co

Oh my, Remi!! I cannot tell you how great this book is.
When I started it I didnt move from my couch until it was finished.
I have a major book hangover right now.
I love how Dylan and her books can make me really escape reality.
Its full of angst, drama, lies and betrayal.
This was a serious rollercoaster ride of emotions and my gah I loved every second of it.
I dont want to give spoil anything for anybody. So I am going to stop before I do.

Remington how I wish you were real. Strength, pride, determination, Loyalty, Remington “the Legend “ Wilde is a tall dark drink of water with all of those qualities and more. Ms. Allen’s female characters always have class and grace even if they don’t come from the perfect homes. They always hold their own and Kal is no exception. She will not take crap from Remis B of a mother no matter how much shade she throws. A lot of goodness and love going on in this book. What if’s and could haves. I lov ...more

Kal and Remi have such a beautiful love story.... I’m in awe with their love. It is a fast paced, fast read kind of book. Some intense scenes, some hard topics approached, some sad moments and also very easy to read, understand and fall in love with the characters. Perfect!

4.5 Stars

The Legend is book 2 of the Rivers Wilde series of standalones. Keep in mind with standalone books within a series, you will always get a better picture if you read them in order. However, not mandatory.

Remington “Remi” Wilde is all that and more! I mean he's The Legend, how can you not fall in love with this character? It takes a strong person to stop the bad cycles that have been carried on for generations. Remi is the person to make the cha

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. It weaves a tale of deep rooted friendship and first love, and tells the tale of how the love of a lifetime, deserves a million chances.

Remi and Kal first meet in their blossoming youth and form a friendship so unique. As a reader, I found myself pinned to the pages, unable to tear myself away from reading about their friends-to-lover

Perfect mix of angst, the innocent passionate first love, lust, lies, secrets, swoon worthy Prince charming on white horse kinda moment and the scary time of heartbreak and betrayel.

I say this one in Legacy, I'll say it again in Legend. Dylan Allen done it! This author know how to make her reader laugh, blush, angry, swoon, cursing her endlessly, lusting and falling in love so hard, you just can't breath without her characters and their story.

Reminton is... I'm swooning just by remember him...

Is the second book in the Rivers Wilde series.
Holy wow this was a beautiful story. Oh my god Remi. From the first start I fell for him and was rooting for him from the beginning. Kal you want her to get back to her Remi. Yes there is going to moments you want to smack one of the characters. Mostly the mothers. I loved Hayes in the first book but Remi capture my heart took his place.

I absolutely loved The Legend! This is a second chance love story that carries on from youth to adulthood. Remi and Kal meet as teenagers and you can tell they are meant for one another. They are amazing together! I had been looking forward to reading Remi’s story since The Legacy. He’s everything you want in a book boyfriend. Sweet, protective, strong, and, of course, hot!

Remi and Kal’s story is truly a love story from the day they meet. Remi struggles to be the best and is prepared to do what will make his family happy rather than what he wants to make himself happy. Kal is struggling to find her place in a world where she doesn’t feel like she meets anyone’s standards. When Remi and Kal meet the feelings are real and you can feel their love, happiness, pain and regret, but when people conspire to keep them apart it takes 14 years for them to find their way back ...more

Such palpable love between Remi😍and Kal!
Remi captured my heart, I absolutely loved him! I really liked Kal, too. She was a girl that also made me hope for her and Remi’s destined relationship to progress. I wanted them to be together without the meddling by a certain person that I couldn’t find likable. I have to admit she added intrigue and evoked feelings of frustration from me in this amazing second installment of Rivers Wilde. Kudos to Dylan Allen! Another beautiful story told with depth an

Absolutely Must Read!!!!

One time I've promised my friend, that I won't fall for Remi !!! What a stupid girl I was...

Not loving him was IMPOSSIBLE!!!! However, my friend still can sleep well, because more than in Remy I fall in love with Kal.

Their story is amazing!!!! I left all my bookish heart in The Legend.

Remington and Kal have a rollercoaster of a story. The emotional missed opportunities between them and then the reunion kept me on the edge of my seat! I had a hard time putting this book down.
