The Fall of Legend by Meghan March
Narrated by Erin Mallon and Joe Arden
Contemporary Romance, First in a trilogy.
Meghan March never fails me. Her books are the perfect blend of alpha-male, sexiness, strong females, and unputdownable storylines. She is one of only 2 or 3 authors that I will read books in a trilogy as they release instead of waiting. And I’m so glad I read The Fall of Legend, because I can’t wait for House of Scarlett.
When Scarlett wakes up realizing she has been kidnapped, she vows to do whatever is necessary to get out alive. What she doesn’t expect to see is a gorgeous hunk of man-meat who needs her to save his ass.
Gabriel Legend was an underground fighter turned legit after sinking every penny he and investors had into a hot new nightclub. On grand opening night, there was a big shooting, effectively killing the club. Nobody wants to go back. Scarlett Priest is a social media influencer. Born into money, desperate for a connection with her father, her life isn’t as perfect as her glamorous image depicts. Gabriel knows that all she has to do is come to his club a few times and show it on social media, and he may be able to bring the club back into the black.
Gabriel and Scarlett have an immediate incendiary connection. She has a shitty boyfriend and he knows that she is out of his league, but that doesn’t stop either one of them from wanting the other.
“Stop fucking staring at her legs, man. That pussy might be gold-plated, but it’s not for you.”
This book was a little different than most other Meghan March books in that Gabriel Legend wasn’t really as much of an asshole as most of her alphas are at first. It also moved a little slower. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it! But after the initial kidnapping, it was more getting to know the characters than action, but it really picked up in the last third and I want more NOW.
- It is a little different than her other books.
- Gabriel is a bad boy with a good heart.
- He is far from cocky.
- As always, Meghan March leaves me dying for more.
- A little slow in the middle.
With two of my favorite narrators, Erin Mallon and Joe Arden were amazing, as always. Erin Mallon does the male parts so well!
The Down & Dirty:
Rating: 4 Stars, 3 heat (I can tell, this will go up in the next book!)
