A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
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?
Real by Katy Evans is a book I’m not going to be forgetting, much the same as the effect Beautiful Disaster did to me. It’s a leader in its class. It wasn’t perfect in my eyes “by the book” but I couldn’t put it down and for every second it made me excited and caught up in love.
How to describe it, like really. *thinks* I know almost everyone has heard of this book and lots are still deciding whether to read it or not. I’ll make a recommendation here. If you love possessive guys, alpha males and hot romances, go for it. If you like to stay grounded and like stories driven by powerful women or by life-changing choices, maybe this isn’t for you. Sure it’s a romantic read but it will capture all your feels so get ready. Honestly I’m not sure how long it will take to recover from my Remy disease. He is clearly just a fictional character but my outlook in men as sexy and hot as him is now forever ruined. Katy Evans created one amazing man right here. Seriously days later I’m still swooning.
I just can’t . . . I can’t get over him, and Brooke–the couple together. Oh man, i loved she had some ferocity and he had a tonne of ferocity. I loved the over-used language as much as i cringed at it. Yes, I am aware Remy is male, and not partially male, but all male. I get how sexy he is and how much his fans love screaming, “RIIIIPTIDEEEEE” and all those other overused words and phrases but really? I am a sucker for an intense romantic connection and all these things amped me up more, and made me deliciously excited to read this book forever (sadly it finished).
I got caught up in the Remy obsession and will always love this book so, so much. Seriously makes me wonder if I could ever read a more amazing lead male in a book. le sigh.
Huge 5 stars and straight to my Best Everrr shelf.
If you were wondering, this is like exactly what he looks like.
