Synopsis from Goodreads
New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the utterly addictive Legend Trilogy in House of Scarlett.
Gabriel Legend is unlike any other man I’ve ever met.
He came into my life like a hurricane, shattering all my assumptions and preconceived notions.
I wasn’t prepared for him. I wasn’t prepared for any of it.
But life doesn’t wait until you’re ready. Whatever happens next, I know one thing for certain.
I will never be the same Scarlett I was before I met him.
House of Scarlett is the second book in the Legend Trilogy and should be read after The Fall of Legend, book one in the utterly addictive Legend Trilogy.
I am in serious awe of Meghan March’s ability to weave a plot; there is so much going on within House of Scarlett the assumption that it would create confusion would be valid, however, Meghan maintains a tight control over all the layers while simultaneously developing the main characters and throwing the occasional curve ball into the mix. Seriously WOW!!
With the bitter ending of The Fall of Legend, Scarlett and Gabe both have a lot of self-reflection to do. Luckily, they both have amazing friends in their lives who are able to pick them up and push them forward.
An unexpected event pushes Scarlett and Gabe back together and this time Gabe is determined to prove his worth. Cue the swoon ❤
Unfortunately, there are still problems to deal with including the financial situation of Gabriel’s club, Scarlett’s troll/stalker, Scarlett’s uncaring father and vengeful ex-boyfriend, Bohdi Black’s thirst for revenge along with the demons from Gabriel’s’ past who are still searching for him. Few questions are answered in this respect but the momentum of the revelations is gaining pace.
I adored the friendships in House of Scarlett and can’t help but wonder if any of the peripheral characters will wind up in the spotlight.
In true Meghan March style, there is a MAJOR twist/cliffhanger at the end of House of Scarlett which I have a sneaky suspicion is just the tip of the ice-berg where The Fight for Forever is concerned.
