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?

“Remington Tate is everything I’ve never, ever done…”
Not sure why I decided to give this new author a try, but I am so glad I did! I immediately fell in love with both Brooke and Remy. Real is a great debut novel from Katy Evans. Remington “Riptide” Tate will steal your heart right from the beginning. He is a brute of a man, an athlete, competitor and superstar underground fighter with a huge following. He desperately wants Brooke Dumas to see him for the real person that he is, serious problems and all. Brooke has her own issues, but really knows and understands the thrill of sports competition.
“He wants to be my real, not my adventure.”
Remy and Brooke’s attraction is instant but its a slow burn leading up to the first time they get together:
“My panties are soaked, and my pulse has gone haywire. I’ve never
condoned violence. This isn’t me, and I blink in stupefaction at the
sensations whipping through my system. Lust, pure white-hot lust,
flutters through my nerve endings.”
I don’t want to give away any spoilers so I will just say that this story has a great twist that hooked me in right from the beginning. I read this book quickly but at the same time did not want it to end. Loved the Epilogue and hope to see more of these characters from Ms. Evans.
“And I’d give up forever to touch you…
Cause I know that you feel me somehow…
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ve ever been and I don’t want to
go home right now.
I want you to know who I am.“
Thank you, Ms. Evans, for introducing us to Remy. Can’t wait for more.
