REVIEW**~**Real by Katy Evans

Real hi-res

A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…

He even makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?


♥ My Review ♥

“The one and only, Remington RIIIIIIIIIPTIDE Tate!”

Look out Travis Maddox, Remington Tate is giving you some competition in the book boyfriend department!!! Travis, I know you were my first, but Remington(I can’t call him Remy, it’s not manly enough for him!) has made his way deep into my heart and is knocking on your first place status!! I know I am so late to the game on reading this book, and believe me, I am kicking myself in the ass for it. But, I finally did it and that is all that matters. EVERY reader who loves an alpha male, needs and MUST read it!!

“You’re all I think about, dream about. I get high and low and it’s all about you now, it’s not even about me anymore. I can’t sleep, can’t think, can’t concentrate worth shit anymore and it’s all because I want to be the fucking ‘one’ for you, and as soon as you realize what I am, all I’ll be is a fucking mistake!”

Wow, Remington Tate is so f’in intense, but an intense that you are drawn to. And Brooke Dumas is drawn to him as soon as she lays eyes on him. It makes me think “Beauty and the Beast,” but it’s really not. That was my first instinct. You have Brooke Dumas who is conservative and sweet, and then you have the bad ass fighter, Remington Tate, who lives and thrives on fighting. It’s his world! Seeing these two come together and make it work was exhausting, thrilling, and so romantically intense. I was sad, horny, pissed, swooning, smiling, and even laughing.  Just the words that come out of Remington’s mouth will make your toes curl, and then the sex scenes….hot doesn’t even cover it!! I can’t even come up with a good word for them.

“You go after something because you want it bad enough to expend every one of your efforts to get it and will even risk some losses in its pursuit.”

There were so many things that Remington did that made me swoon. MUSIC!!! OMG, this man uses music as an expression of his feelings and who knew it could be so damn sweet. We all know most men are not talkers and, as you would suspect, he is not, but the way he shows Brooke how he feels in other ways is intense and sweet all at the same time. I swear I could feel the butterflies in my stomach for her.

“I love him, Melanie. I love him. He’s not just a star; he’s the whole fucking sky to me. He’s the sun and every planet in this galaxy. It hurts me to think of him, don’t you understand?”

Brooke doesn’t come across, in the beginning, as a risk taker, but she is and doesn’t even know it. But, she isn’t doing it for the fun or for the thrill, she is doing it because the people she loves are worth it. Yes, I can’t say it enough…intense!! I loved her character. I loved her determination, her caring side, and her feisty side.

So, in conclusion, this is a definite 5 star book for me. You can’t go wrong with an alpha male, a strong female character, just the perfect amount of drama, amazing writing, hot and steamy sex scenes, and an excellent ending!! I can’t wait to get my hands on MINE 🙂
