Blog Tour + Review: The Legend by Dylan Allen

The Legend - BT banner.jpg

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

The Legend, an all-new steamy, second-chance romance from Dylan Allen, is available now!


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?

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.”

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 they first met. I loved that the author decided to tell it in one big piece instead of inserting flashbacks every few chapters. This helps me in understanding the dynamics of their relationship. However, I felt like that some scenes were cut short. This confused me a time or two because I was expecting the scene to continue but it then moved on to the next day or week. And I know that the author can't go into too much detail otherwise the book probably would've been twice the size. But I just couldn't get enough of the characters and story.

"She's got a wildness in her that's contagious. Her imagination is full of magic that's more than a cheap trick of the eye and she's got a beauty so distinctive that I know I could travel the whole world and not find anyone who reminds me of her."

For me in regards to second-chance romances, I really want the biggest piece of the book to take place in present time, to fully develop the growth of the characters as a couple. That was my biggest issue with this book. Instead of fully concentrating on their relationship, Remi was more focused on solving a family mystery. Don't get me wrong, the twists regarding the family was, like the previous book, a very pleasant and intriguing part of the story. However, I wanted Remi and Kal to have more time together. I loved the maturity of how they handled things and the passion between them was amazing. I loved how they met and how their relationship came into existence, and how the respect and love for each other never went away. Remi is definitely a swoon-worthy book boyfriend. I absolutely love Dylan's writing and her characters are seriously the best. I feel a strong connection to them, and I always end up not wanting the story to end.
