THE LEGEND is a slow-kindling fire that, before you know it, has consumed you. Lies, twists, turns, passion, devotion, and a love that, though tried, never breaks. Dylan Allen masterfully weaves them all into this unputdownable, compelling tapestry of a tale.”

— Kennedy Ryan, Amazon bestselling author

LEGEND_FINAL.jpg

The love of a lifetime deserves a million chances.

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 written in the stars…

But our legend, it turns out, was all a lie.

And when our story ended, all I had was a broken heart.

Now, he wants a second chance.

But this time, I’ve got more to lose than just my heart.

When the lies that pulled us apart, threaten again, it will take more than sweet words from his sinful mouth to convince me.

He says the love of a lifetime deserves a million chances,

But am I strong enough to fall again?

My Review

Legends…tales…folklore…fables…myths…each one of these story types is entrenched in fiction, obscured by secrets, and covered in lies.

Remington Wilde’s family is legendary in their wealth, in their ambition, and in the gossip and fodder than surrounds their name and their social position. Kalilah Greer may be viewed extraordinary by those who love her, but as far as her social standing and

To understand how Remi and Kal got to the point they were in when their story opened up in the present, it’s necessary to start at the beginning with the first time they met and every subsequent encounter that fused their hearts together and made it impossible for either of them to completely let go of the ‘what ifs’ and ‘if onlys’ that kept them constant company even when Remi and Kal were no longer together or even on speaking terms. 

‘Moments deferred by life’. There’s not a better explanation for how everything life seemed to be against these two from the start, whether it was their opposing social statuses, meddling family members, or just simply unexpected encounters that were complicated by extenuating circumstances, there never seemed to be a time where their focus could be on one another and no-one and nothing else. 

I never doubted Remi or Kal’s feelings for one another, and even though, I’ll admit, I didn’t see how these two could find their way back to each other after everything that was left unsaid and pertinent information that they didn’t know, I knew that if given another chance, Remi wouldn’t squander it and he would prove to Kal and to himself that she is all he needs despite other people’s beliefs to the contrary. And I have to say that if I was in Kal’s shoes and Remi asked me for another or one million chances, I wouldn’t deny him because what’s beyond clear is how much that man loves her despite everything that stood in their way in the past and still seems to be hindering their present.

The man that Remi is and pretty much everything else about him had me swooning from the start and he never failed to put a smile on my face, whether it was his filthy mouth or his sugary sweetness; he owned his feelings for Kal and it almost seemed like he was biding his time until their paths would, once again, cross and he could say and do what he should have done all those years ago when there were too many secrets between them and not enough faith and trust to conquer the legends and lies.

The one aspect of legends that more than epitomizes Remi and Kal’s love story is the fact that it’s EPIC, not just in the amount of time they spent loving each other or the way their hearts still beat for one another despite going in opposite directions…it’s those ideas and then some. Their love knows no boundaries or distance…there’s not an obstacle that it can’t surpass as long as there’s a chance that that they’ll find their way back to one another, stronger and better than ever. And it’s that idea that allowed me to keep the faith…that made me put my hurting heart in Dylan Allen’s capable hands and give Remi and Kal the ending they deserved and the resolution that I craved.

Excerpt

I can see the heat in her eyes and right away I know.

“You watched me?” I ask.

Her dark eyes widen, but she doesn’t look away.

“Yes.” She swallows hard.

“Did you like it?” I ask her.

“Remi,” she admonishes sharply, but I don’t miss the way she shifts her stance. She liked it.

“I want to hear you say it.” I ask again.

She nods and sucks her fat lower lip into her mouth.

I want to suck it, too.

“You know you could have gotten in and watched up close. You could have helped if you wanted.”

I circle her wrists and hold her hands in front of my face.

“They’re a little small, they wouldn’t fit all the way ’round.”

She draws in a big gulp of air and takes a step closer to me.

“Really?” she whispers her eyes flit down to my pants.

“I would have covered your hands with mine. We could have done it together.”

I let go of her wrists and slide my hands up so that we’re palm to palm.

Skin to skin.

It’s not nearly enough.

I’m this close to crossing a line I shouldn’t. But, when it comes to Kal, I can’t seem to help myself.

“Remi…we shouldn’t.” Her voice is husky and her fingers flex a little against mine.

“Yeah, probably not,” I agree, but I see the reflection of my own disappointment flash in her eyes and it emboldens me.

I know I should stand down. Even if it feels like it, we aren’t a good idea.

But she’s so tempting. And when it comes to her, I can’t seem to get a grip on my control.

I link our fingers and bring her hand to my lips for a kiss. She inhales sharply and looks up at me through the inky fringe of her lashes.

Her gaze lingers longingly on my mouth and I smile.

“Oh, Kal. We have a dilemma.” I drawl.

“Really? Then why do you sound amused? A dilemma isn’t generally a good thing.” The corners of her mouth turn up in a small smile.

“It’s a very good thing…because even though you don’t want to be, and I absolutely shouldn’t be, we’re interested in each other.”

“Well, that’s the perfect recipe for an unhappy ending, if I ever heard one.”
