Giveaway & Review: Real by Katy Evans

5 Hearts

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?

**ARC provided by author for an honest review**

This book takes you on a roller coaster ride called Remy. And let me tell you, it is one you want to ride again and again and again! He is a beautifully complex man. He will steal your heart from the moment you meet him. And have you wishing you were Brooke over and over!

When Brooke sees Remy for the first time it is definitely lust at first sight.

"His face is suddenly before me, illuminated by the lights, and I just stare like an idiot from my place. My god.
Dark scruffy jaw
Boyish smile. Man's body.
Killer tan.
A shiver shoots down my spine as I helplessly drink in the entire package everyone else is gaping at."

Brooke, who is normally not that kinda girl, if ya know what I mean *wink wink*,  is more then willing to give in to the lust she is feeling for Remy. Especially when she is summoned to his hotel room after a fight. 

"Remington Tate is everything I've never, ever done, and I have a condom tucked in my bag, and I suddenly know exactly why I put it in there."

But instead she is shocked to learn he wants to offer her a job. Needless to say, she accepts as it is a great opportunity for her. But it also means taking things to the next level with Remy is off the table. Right?

But Brooke didn't plan on how hard it would be to touch Remy day in and day out. Or the feelings she would develop for him. The want she feels for him just continues to grow until she is one big bundle of nerves. And if she doesn't get a release soon, she may very well explode. 

"I want him so bad, sometimes I just want to hit him in the head and haul him into my woman's cave, where nobody's opinion matters but mine. And I say we go ay it all night long and that's that."

Remy is not willing though. He wants her to know him before they take things to that next level.

"I want to be your fucking REAL! You get that? If I fuck you, I want you to belong to me. To be mine. I want you to give yourself me, not Riptide!"

The journey that is Remy and Brooke's is hot. It is sweet, scary,  unfulfilling, fulfilling, smexy, heartbreaking, crazy, intense, beautiful, oh did I mention hot?! Brooke is the perfect balance that Remy needs in his life. She is his chance at happiness that he has never been given. And Remy will do anything to prove his feeling for Brooke. and he sets out to do that many times through out this book. 

Kudos are in order for Ms. Evans for taking writing to a whole new level. She makes you FEEL every single word you read. There will be moments you will be thanking her for that and others you will be hunting her down to give her a piece of your mind. But that is what made this story so.....REAL!!

Winner will receive their book on the evening of 4/8.
