From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a deliciously dangerous alpha hero in The Fall of Legend, the first book in the utterly addictive Legend trilogy.
We come from two different worlds.
I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.
I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.
Our paths never should have crossed.
We never should have met.
That doesn’t change the facts.
I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.
Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.
Burn in hell to have a single night.
Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will.
If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.
The Fall of Legendis the first book in the Legend Trilogy. Legend and Scarlett’s story continues in House of Scarlett and concludes in The Fight for Forever. All three books of the Legend Trilogy are available now!

The Fall of Legend is an addictive start to the Legend Trilogy and gives us only a taste of what’s to come. It’s the best mix of mystery, seduction, danger, and feels, and I couldn’t put it down.-The Escapist Book Blog
Meagan is a 100 star author. The way she melds her collections together is simply genius. Start from the beginning based on her suggested reading order and be prepared to fall in love with each character over and over (especially if you like deep and sexy).55
Loved every aspect of this book right from the beginning. Gabriel’s fight for redemption at a new life, Scarlett wanting more out of her life and the passion that fills you to your toes from first site! Definitely can’t wait to have more of their story!!55
Meghan March has long been a fave of mine simply because I adore how complex and well-written her characters and story lines are. It’s like literary tiramisu and you know this Southern gal’s got a sweet tooth the size of Texas 🍰😏 I read her Dirty Mafia duet back in early fall and fell head over heels in LOVE with Cannon Freeman. But, even as amazing as Cannon was, let’s talk about a teeny tiny blip on the DMD map. There was a quick mention of Gabriel Legend and as soon as he stepped onto the scene, I was immediately drawn to him. I’m talking moth-to-flame, Ross-to-Rachel, gravy-to-biscuit level attraction, y’all 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 I knew Legend’s Trilogy was coming by the time I got my ARC for White Knight, so meeting him for the first time, even if just for a flicker of a moment, was a sign of great things to come. If I immediately adore the hero of a story, there’s a ridiculously high chance I’m going to love everything about his book and then some; this book did NOT disappoint on that front with our alpha. Truthfully, I’m just built to adore and be addicted to alphas. 💪 Maybe there’s a local Alphaholics Anonymous chapter around my area for this affliction? 👀 Shoot. Who am I kidding? I’d walk on by with a smile on my face and an alphalicious read front and center on my Kindle app 😏📚📱🤙 Addictions and attractions aside, this book…this book. GAH! M-Squared tapped into the weakness of ALL weaknesses for me: the underdog. Growing up, before my obsession with good-looking men and their cavemanish ways became a mainstay in life, my heart was forever forged to root for the romantic underdog: Will Turner with Elizabeth Swann Wesley with Buttercup Johnny with Baby Jack with Rose Christian with Satine Noah and Allie (FULL DISCLOSURE: I haven’t watched the entire movie yet, so please don’t stone me) and—flipping the script a bit—Elizabeth Bennet with Mr. Darcy These amazing love stories where the underdog fights so many prejudices (including his own crippling feelings of inadequacy) to prove he’s worthy of loving such an amazing girl are by and large my all-time favorites. Who wouldn’t love a man who would wade through the waters of despair and endure the flames of Hell just to be with you? *crickets chirping* That’s what I thought. I love a strong heroine, but broken heroes with a spirit that won’t quit are my favorite dose of heroin. Now, I realize I named several stories that didn’t have the happiest ending, which crushed my very soul when arriving at the end of the movie. And, admittedly, Cinderella ruined me for romance because I can’t imagine reading it without having an HEA at the end of the rainbow. Yet, it also taught me not to settle for anything less and to admire the human spirit and how faith, hope, and love can . Two great lessons, indeed. Speaking of Disney movies, I jokingly mentioned on one of MM’s Legend teaser posts that this was like Lady and the Tramp 2.0 (can anyone say Letty and the Tramp?), but after reading The Fall of Legend, I am 110% convinced that deep down, this is the grown-up retelling of the classic tale of tails. (PS If Meghan March is reading this: I believe a sketti-and-meatball rendezvous is needed within the trilogy—pretty please 😉😍😁) If you take away the ruff and fluff, you could even draw parallels with another of my faves: Aladdin. A scrappy man with a red-hatted sidekick, an iron will to escape the binds of his past and poverty, and a steely determination to win the heart of a princess who’s bored with the façade of her ivory-towered reality? Sound familiar? I rest my case, counselor. #TeamUnderdogForTheWin So… Now that I’ve nerded out fully over Disney and underdogs, let’s chat a spell about the reason we’re here: Gabriel Legend and Scarlett Priest. Scarlett Priest has a problem. A big one. A huge “I-woke-up-in-a-strange-place-wrapped-in-a-rug-with-The-Pretenders-serenading-me-through-earbuds-for-some-reason” problem. Being kidnapped is one thing, but to find out you’ve been laid at the feet of the notorious Gabriel Legend? Two scoops of trouble with a “HOLY CRAP!” cherry on top. Born to privilege and raised in wealth, our heroine is no stranger to the good life, but what if a good life is really only a good existence in disguise?

Couldn’t get past 50 pages. Poorly written to say the least.15
Megan March did it again. The characters grip your heart. You feel their love and sorrow. It is a cliff hanger So onward to part two.55
This book had it all for me. A slow-burn romance, hot MMA fighter, and a woman breaking free of her chains and living. I couldn’t get enough of Legend and Scarlett. Their beginning was unconventional but fit them. There is a lot of layers to each character that needs to be revealed but knowing Meghan they will be revealed at the right time and it will be a punch in the gut leaving us all breathless. The heat between Legend and Scarlett burned up the pages. It was like a boiling pot of hotness. I couldn’t get enough of their growing relationship. I needed to know where it went. I cannot end this review without mentioning the side characters. They added so much to the story. Scarlett’s friends infused the story with humor and Legend’s added the intrigue. Can’t wait to continue reading this series.55
I absolutely loved diving into this book. Scarlett and Gabe are both characters who, despite their differences, have similar themes running through their lives. This is easily be my favorite trilogy from Meghan March. I can’t wait for books two and three to find out their story.55
I tried to wait for all 3 books but once I started I couldn’t put it down. I love Legend he has a softer side to him that makes him perfect for Scarlett. I hope that some of the other characters get their own story. I can’t wait till all the books come out. You did it again Meghan. ❤️❤️❤️🎉55
3.5 stars for - Fall of Legend - book one in the Legend Trilogy by Meghan March. Book two - House of Scarlett will be out in December 2019 and book three - The Fight for Forever - will be out in January 2020. Scarlett Priest is the ultra successful daughter of a supermodel and a high-profile businessman who chose to forge her own path instead of following in either one of her parents footsteps and became a social media influencer and style icon. Scarlett opened her own store in New York where she excels at what she does having made a name for herself in the industry. Gabriel Legend grew up dirt poor in Biloxi, MS and fled shortly after hurricane Katrina. When he arrived in New York he used his fists and survival skills to make a living in the cage. He ran a underground fight club with dreams of going legit once he finally had enough money. Gabe opened a upscale, elite club that never had the chance to take off because of an incident that occurred on opening night. He needs a miracle and she just fell into his office in the most unexpected of ways. This book has so much potential and I seriously can't wait to read the next two books. Once they finally got together it was great but the waiting was what was killing me! I have long been a fan of this author's work and it hurts me giving it a three star rating but this book was slow paced with no real interaction between the H/h and I hated reading how they aren't right for each other over and over again. Many connections and characters were introduced that show great promise to turn this into an awesome story so I'm betting books two and three will be amazing!35
(3.7 stars) Scarlett Priest & Gabriel Legend are from very different worlds. When Gabe’s new club, Legend, needs help before it sinks he knows someone that might be able to help. Too bad his friend might of went the wrong way of procuring her services. Can she really do what he is asking of her and will she even want to? Legend has so much to deal with, struggling silently but can he finally get himself back on top? What happened in his past to make him so distant? This is a good introduction to the trilogy although it did drag at times for me. The pull between these two is magnetic and I am interested in seeing where Legend’s story goes. Remember this is only book 1 so we don’t get the full story...yet; told in dual POV45
