Maverick “the Avenger” Cage wants to rise to the top and become a legend in the ring. Though he keeps his identity well guarded, he's known on the fighting circuit as the new kid with a chip on his shoulder and a tattoo on his back that marks him as trouble. He's got a personal score to settle with the Underground's one and only Remington "Riptide" Tate.
As Mav trains, he meets a young girl—the only other new person in the town--and sparks fly. When things get heated between them, he finds out she's none other than Reese Dumas, the cousin of Remington Tate’s wife. A girl who's supposed to root against him and a girl he's supposed to stay away from.
But Maverick fights for the woman in his heart, and the monsters in his blood. The world’s eyes are on them and the victor will go down in history as the ultimate fighting champion; the ultimate LEGEND.
The highly anticipated sixth story in the New York Times bestselling series that began with Real—“a rare mix of fevered obsession and gentle enchantment…a visceral and addicting debut” (Christina Lauren)

Caro’s Book Review: 5 stars
“Legend” is the story of Maverick Cage and Reese Dumas. They meet, when he ‘piggybacks’ her into her Gym, since he doesn’t have a membership. All the other fighters around seem to be afraid of him but Reese feels nothing but a definite pull towards the beautiful man. That is until she finds out who he is and what that means for both of them…
The Real Series by Katy Evans is my favorite fighter-series of all times. Nobody can write a fighting scene as good as she does; I can smell, feel and even taste the sweat, blood and tears in her novels. Remy is my personal champion, without question – but he just got serious competition from Maverick “The Avenger” Cage. He was described as a gentle but lethal Champ of the ring and the sack, and that is a definite guarantee for a new fighter of the hearts! Evans managed to combine the harsh fighting scene with a beautiful soul for a male MC and a heartwarming love-story. It’s a book about taking chances, sacrificing and about winning. I loved how the author balanced everything perfectly. The writing is definitely on the ‘dramatic’ side, and like in all her novels, we have to deal with instalove in this book. It was, however, very believable. Even though “Legend” is low on the angst-scale, it kept me glued to the pages from start to ending. It had a slight touch of forbidden to it, though the twist could be guessed early on. But that didn’t dampen the reading experience one bit.
All in all, I rate “Legend” with 5 stars and can recommend it wholeheartedly. While this book can be read as a standalone, completely with HEA, I’d highly recommend reading the Real Series in order, starting with Remy and Brooke’s book, “Real”.
