An indie phenomenon and New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller, the first in a heartwrenching New Adult series about a beautiful young sports rehab specialist who can't fight her attraction to a dangerously sexy underground fighter.

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?

Holy Moly is this book HOT!! I have read some wonderful contemporary romances, although REAL is amazing! I give Katy Evans 2 thumbs up for the love story. It's raw. It's riveting. It's REAL. Even if I love a book, I truly am not one to read it again. However, I will read REAL many times over. It is that amazing. Have I said yet, that this book is amazing?

Remington Tate is a boxer. This is what he lives for. This is all he knows. He had a difficult childhood and never really knew what love was. Beside the fact that he's a boxer, he is gorgeous. Over 6 feet tall, he has icy blue eyes, black spiky hair and a tanned body so hard and toned, you will melt just looking at him. Remy is loved by his fans. They adore him and if you are a true fan, you follow him. These people know of his life and he knows just how much support he has from his fans. They lift him up, they give him strength. You hurt Remy, you hurt his fans.

Brooke Dumas is a simple and shy girl. Never outspoken and just keeps to herself. Brooke was training for the Olympics as a runner, until she injured her knee so badly, that she was forced to retire. This killed her, so she decided that a career in rehabilitation would be the right path for her. Brooke is beautiful. She has shoulder length hair, the color of mahogany and honeyed, whiskey colored eyes. She has a younger sister Nora, who she loves to no end and a best friend named Melanie, also known as Mel with whom she shares everything with.

Mel follows Remy, the Riptide Tate and thinks that he is a God. She convinces Brooke to come with her to watch a boxing match, which involves Remy. Brooke reluctantly agrees, knowing that she is not a fan of this type of thing. Mel keeps telling her how gorgeous this Remy guy is and won't stop until Brooke says that yes, he is absolutely gorgeous. The announcer calls him into the ring and in that instant, Brooke feels herself overcome with an emotion she had never felt before. Want. She wanted this man the second she saw him. Melanie screams out to Remy, and as he turns, he locks eyes with Brooke and gave her the most "melt my heart and buckle my knees" smile. A smile with dimples to die for. After the fight, Brooke gets up to leave and Remy jumps out of the ring because he had to meet her. And thus begins the wild adventurous ride that Brooke has been waiting all of her life for.

A career opportunity with a world renowned fighter. A possible love interest with one of the most hard bodied, rough and rugged men she has ever seen. An opportunity to travel the world. Could this be REAL?

If I get into more detail, this review will be full of spoilers. I want you to experience the wonderful world of Remy and Brooke for yourselves. This is such an amazing read, that REAL will sit amongst my other faves such as 50 Shades, The Hunger Games and Twilight. This is definitely a good thing, because not many make it into that category of my all time top reads. Thank you Katy Evans for giving me such a captivating read. I can not wait for Mine and Remy. I have already pre-ordered them and will be stalking the mailbox mid month!! Please continue to captivate us with ore stories. I'm hooked!!
