Reason chosen:  

I saw the cover floating around and when I got the chance to look into it I had to pick it up!

Summary taken from Goodreads:

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?


I may have accidentally choked while reading this. Nothing sexual actually happens in this novel until about half-way through, but while you’re waiting for it you are dosed in pent-up sexual tension, extremely sexy moments, animalistic Alpha male-ness, and then you’re light a-fire with how much Remy and Brooke mean to each other. It was one crazy read. Remy might just have the most Alpha-Man personality that I have ever read, and he is a lot different from the other men that would fall under his category because he doesn’t talk much, which means you never really understand what is going on in his head. And, oh-dear-lord, how I wished I knew what was going on in his brain. Although it’s highly un-realistic that a guy would knock-out his opponent at the beginning of the match just to follow you out of the arena to get your name and number, it’s still always nice to read about. And Remy is the kind of man who doesn’t take no for an answer, in fact he demands an answer from Brooke during their second meeting. Sometimes Remy’s attitude really warrants a punch in the face, but other times it was extremely appealing and when we started to learn about his past things became more understandable. This novel had my blood-pressure going, my toes curled, and my heart may have stopped once or twice. Real by Katy Evans is incredible and somethings I’m thankful I got my hands on.


Remy--Alpha-Male to the max. He is determined, cocky, and deep-down a nice guy once Brooke comes into his life. Oh, and he’s sex on a stick.

Here is how I pictured Remy

Brooke-Independent, determined, smart, and knows what she wants


Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):

Overall, this book was amazing. I said “dear lord” out-loud more times than I can remember. I fanned myself, almost punch my eReader screen, and decided that I was going to hang out more often as boxing rings, as well reading and dreaming about the oh-so-tasty Remington Tate. I pumped my fist up in the air when I was proud of Brooke and may have even shed a tear or two. This book was a helicopter ride over the city and deep sea diving with the sharks all rolled together. My heart never slowed down and the adventure never stopped. It is a book I definitely recommend if you like the bad boys.


“I’ve never seen a mad go after a woman like that. Holy shit, it’s like porn with the romance.”
