Just okay story, narration doesn't help.

This review is meant to include the entire Legend series: The Fall of Legend, The House of Scarlett, and The Fight for Forever.

I can accept that I need to suspend my disbelief when I enter a Meghan March world. I can accept the fabulous wealth of her characters, the ridiculous concept of "alpha males" and all the rest, as long as the story's good and emotional, the writing is good and creative, the sex is hot and plentiful, and the narration - if it's an audio book - is decent. This book fails at most of that.

The story is flimsy, completely unbelievable, and (given the talent I know March can bring to bear when she gets it right) largely unaffecting. The plot is much weaker than I'd expect from her, and her usual trope - a bad guy who falls for a good girl and is suddenly changed and committed, and they overcome some very far-fetched conflict while they talk endlessly about how a.) the guy is such an alpha, b.) he's so protective he'd die for her c.) she's got to be protected, d.) he doesn't deserve her, e.) ad nasuem - is beginning to wear thin with me.

Then, there's the execution of it all. Some of the lines and internal monologues are cringe-worthy. Most of this story just fell short for me. The twists were predictable and the tertiary characters were little more than cardboard cutouts of stereotypes. The conclusion is a big letdown; when you've invested hours upon hours of reading and listening in a story, you just expect a bigger payoff than the contrived and almost comical climax of this series. Situations and personal conflicts (Scarlett and her father, for instance) are left unresolved and incomplete. I frequently found the dialog to be cringe-worthy, repetitive, and/or banal; much of the drama is forced and not compelling in the least. Overall, I expect much, much more from Meghan March. It's hard to believe that the author of Take Me Back and the Beneath series also wrote this; March can do so much better.

Separate issue: The narration is barely tolerable. The only reason I stuck through the whole trilogy was to give the whole thing a fair shake. But in the end, everything listed above might have been less of a problem had the performances of the narrators been better.

Joe Arden's voice sounds as if he's suffering with allergies or something; it's got a a nasal quality that renders some of his words unintelligible and I found myself rewinding frequently to catch what was said. His attempts at female voices actually had me laughing at times, and most of his male character's voices were indistinguishable from one another. Oh, and what is up with his Creighton Karas performance? Sounds like a computer-generated voice reading the whole thing, utterly flat and oddly accented. That alone justifies my review, imho.

Erin Mallon's voice and tone were better and more easy to understand, and she seemed to put some actual feeling into some of the work. She doesn't seem to be aware, though, when she's switching characters and all her females sound like valley girls and cheerleaders. She doesn't seem to bring any kind of understanding of the story or main character to her performance, though.

The bigger problem is that overall, both narrators seem to have no actual acting skills. The performances were flat, with little emotion aside from anger. The inflection, emphasis, and overall reading did not engage me and actively put me off in some areas. For instance, if a passage read (for example) "'I love you,' she said, as she closed the door," it is often performed as three separate statements. "I love you." She said. As she closed the door." The words just don't flow naturally, as they should. It seems like the narrators were not only reading the story for the first time, but that they weren't even paying attention as they went and their narration actually detracted from the story.

Overall, if you're a Meghan March fan and you don't expect much from narration, then you might like this series. I found it to be hard to listen to, trite and unoriginal, and overall only worth listening to if it's the only thing available.

A RIVETING END TO A DELICIOUS TRILOGY

I have over twenty audiobooks in my library by Meghan and most were five star listens.. and this giant of an author’s trilogies continue to deliver on so so many levels. In Scarlett and Gabriel’s love story she gives us a sexy desperate Nightclub owner hero with a failing business and a shady past that still haunts him.. because Gabriel’s still living with those bad decisions of that terrible night long ago that killed his girlfriend and left his best friend brain damaged. But now the past has finally come back to get what’s owed and Gabriel has to fight his enemies, fight for his and Scarlett’s future and fight to keep his Ladybug safe.

From the moment these two soul-mates met in book 1, there was combustible sexual fumes and that continues in books 2 and 3 along with their love.. but Fate, Destiny and Cupid will have to work their mythical magical butts off to navigate them through the life-threatening drama, the emotional angst and the powerful players whose villainous roadblocks will derail and divert them before their final HEA exit ramp.

Worth a credit? Yes definitely, a strong, fierce, loyal heroine.. a drool-worthy, alpha, ex MMA Fighter hero and, over the three books, there was a good balance of suspense, raw passion, sexual tension, danger, revelations, twists and turns and all the feels. And, apart from the butterflies, gleeful anticipation and sighworthy scenes, it’ll leave you guessing and gasping until the end. There was also a close kinship with all the secondary friends who were often very much in the forefront of the story which brought depth and content. I knew the dual POV plotline would come alive thanks to Joe and Erin’s A game narration.. and they definitely delivered.

Another good trilogy

M. March made another good series right here. I love how she works in characters from previous novels. The story was good and the narration was superb! I would suggest to anyone, especially if you’re a Meghan March fan! ❤️

What an end!

As expected, Meghan March delivered an exciting and sexy conclusion to The Legend Trilogy with The Fight for Forever. I very rarely read trilogies as I don’t have the memory to carry me from book to book. But Meghan March is an exception. Her books are filled with twists and turns and action, but the three books give us time to really get to know and care about the characters.

“You are it for me, Gabriel. So we fight this. We fight for us. And you know what? I don’t lose.”

Gabriel and Charlotte are tight, but there is chaos swirling around them and you know it’s all about to hit the fan. The twists and turns they need to take to get to their happily-ever-after seem insurmountable and we aren’t sure whether it will tear the couple apart completely, kill them, or have them come out even stronger.

“This is where I belong. In this moment. With this woman.”

Both of their pasts come to haunt them as they fight for their lives and their love. The Fight for Forever kept me on my toes as I never knew what was lurking around the next corner.

What I really loved about The Legend Trilogy was that Meghan March was able to take her time and tell a full story where we really got to peel away bits and pieces of their history to get to know the characters in a way we couldn’t in one book. However, this trilogy did seem to have a little more filler than some of her other trilogies and at times felt a little bit repetitive especially because most of the angst and action was from outside forces.

I love how strong and down-to-earth Scarlett is despite her socio-economic status, and I enjoyed the subtle messages behind the prose about social media, everything not being what it seems, overcoming economic disparity, and the fact that life is messy, no matter how perfect it may look to outsiders.

Likes:
•So many twists and turns I never saw coming.
•Kept me on the edge of my seat.
•Charlotte's strength and determination.
•The fact that we really got to know the characters over 3 books.
•A super-satisfying end with enough doors left open for there to be a spin-off trilogy.

Dislikes:
•It was missing some of the heat that Meghan March usually brings.
•There seemed to be a little more filler that sometimes felt a little bit repetitive.

The Narration:
Erin Mallon and Joe Arden are GOLD together. There couldn’t be a more perfect duo for this series.

The Down & Dirty:
As Gabriel fights for everything: His club, Scarlett, his friends and his very life, we are ringside to their fight for forever. As soon as I thought I had everything figured out, Meghan threw a curve ball; The Legend Trilogy had me guessing till the very end. Though I really really enjoyed this trilogy, it isn’t my favorite of Meghan’s—there seemed to be a little more filler and a little less sexy times than I am used to with her books, but that didn’t stop me from sitting in my car in parking lots and listening because I couldn’t stop to get out. There were a few characters introduced in this series that I hope to read about in the future—because The Legend Trilogy is another series that keeps Meghan March on my auto-read list.

Mixed

I loved the narration. Joe Arden is always fantastic (whoever said he was bad... what the hell???)
I did like the characters in this series. I love that Gabe took care of Bump as his brother. I do really like that Gabe and Scarlet were a team, and anything that threatened their relationship was external, and not because of their own silly inner turmoil. Sometimes it seems that people are their own worst enemy, and these characters did not do that. They were a team from the beginning. They were honest in their relationship, that was a nice change.
I do think the trilogy could have been a duet.

Scarlett and Legend are Relationship Goals

This was by far my favorite book in the series. While the cliff hanger from book 2 definitely started this book off right in the middle of the action, the best part of this book was that Legend and Scarlett treat each other with respect, work as a team and communicate openly and honestly. I think this is the first Meghan March book where the characters have acknowledged their feelings, and fully accept their relationship this early in a series. We get to live in their love this whole book, there aren't any secrets, or an alpha trying to solve all the problems on his own. It is so refreshing and real. Scarlett and Legend are #relationshipgoals.

MM never disappoints!!!

All I can say is I loved everything about this this trilogy and “The Fight for Forever” was the perfect way to close this series out. While I usually feel bereft at the end of each series, this one just made me eager to ride this roller coaster all over again and I already know how it ends!!! I can’t say enough about the characters and the little teases you get into others in this world that have me crossing my fingers and hoping to see them get their own stories too. I can’t wait to see what Meghan writes next!!!! 🥰

Brilliant!

Yet again Meghan March has delivered a gripping and very satisfying conclusion! Legend is in the fight of his life to protect what’s his. And with Scarlett beside him he’ll do whatever it takes to win The Fight For Forever.
The Legend Trilogy is brilliant and I highly recommend it!

loved it!

As I read more and more Meghan March books I find there isn't one that I don't like. This the final installment of the legend trilogy finished off the story nicely. No unanswered questions were left everything was tied up in a neat little bow. The narration was fantastic - Joe Arden was legend, he embodied the character bringing him to life. Erin Mallon did the same for Scarlett. Meghan March normally has twists and turns in her books that is why I love them, but this one fell a little short with the surprises. I was able to pick the ending right from book 1, but I still loved it.

not her best

it was a mild suspense driven storyline.
however I'm only comparing to Ms March's others.
the plot and it's characters had soooo much potential but there were holes in the storyline, I never dreamed I'd see this from this author.
she made their dangerous situation look mild. thei concerns mellow and their emotions she only trifle with concern.
the hero in book 1 made me ooh and aah but he got softer as he went along....
Scarlett was a bit dopey I'm boom1 but I like how her character grew but it was still hard to listen to when they seemed to act so nonchalant. k
lehpgend I understand, he won't be touched but others.....?..
anyway I've loved more books from her the not so she's still. in the top 5 for me.
great narration by Erin. Joe meh, I've never been a huge fan but his voice worked walk for the development of the hero character.
Aiden snow could have been legend badass book 1...he's got the voice.

What an ending. Just loved it. Didn’t see the little twist coming. Loved that they believed in each other. Was awesome to see some old characters make an appearance. A great read.
Narration was awesome too.
