My POV: REAL by Katy Evans

Kindle Edition, 266 pages
Published April 9th 2013 (first published April 8th 2013) 
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?-- Goodreads

My POV
LOVED THIS BOOK! Remy is soo yummy..can't wait for you guys to read it!

If you like Beautiful Disaster there is no doubt in my mind that you will love REAL. This is a deeper darker more complicated love story. But an great one all the same. One that had my full attention from the very first page.

Remington is one wild, hot and passionate fighter. He has no problem getting what he wants especially when it come to women but when Brooke Dumas shows up at one of his underground fights Remy can't help but be entranced. Wanting to take thing slow and not scare off the woman who has him so captivated he takes a different approach to getting what he wants and offers Brooke an opportunity she can't refuse.

Brooke was an Olympic contender before she tore her ACL. She now has a degree in sports medicine and rehabs injured athletes. The first time she lays eye on the mysterious Remington "RIPTIDE" Tate she can't seem to find the will to look away. It's infatuations at first site. She is not interested in a romantic relationship and wants to work on building a solid career in sports medicine. So it puts her at a disadvantage when Remy offers her a position as a staff member of his organization giving her the credentials she needs for an outstanding resume. How can she say no to such great opportunity but also keep her feelings in check?

These two have very powerful chemistry and their story is very passionate. What makes this book so alluring to me is the fact is that Brooke is the only one who has tamed the beast as you could say. Remy's vulnerability and childish innocence make him so lovable but his fierce protective side makes him extremely desirable.

This book not only deals with the hopes and dreams of extremely talented athletes but a very serious medical condition that can make a person a ticking time bomb. This is a book that I can read over and over again. I loved the character and the roller coaster ride of emotions this story had me wrapped up in. So if you're looking for an unforgettable read with a hot alpha male this is the one for you! Read it! You won't regret it!
Quote
"The only thing on my mind tonight is the blue-eyed devil who put his lips on mine."
***
"He's like my Olympics, something that I'm never going to have, but which I crave with my entire being."
***
"I want to say so many things, Brooke, and I just can't find the words to tell them to you."
***
He grabs my wrists and angrily yanks me forward, pinning my arms down. "Why'd you want to have sex with me? To have a fucking adventure? What was I supposed to be? Your one-night-fucking stand? I'm every woman's adventure, damn you, and I don't want to be yours. 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 your self to me--not Riptide!"
