Real Katy Evans Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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?

  • Wow!

    By SalinaTookata
    This book kept me on edge the whole time. Very well written, keeping me hanging on every word with different emotions of anger, happiness and laughing out loud.
  • Eh

    By Morganb41
    This book was cringeworthy at best. I actually read to the end because I was slightly intrigued by the storyline, but ended up disappointed with the rushed and lacking resolution. The characters were shallow and if I read the words "sex muscle" one more time I might vomit. The writing is awful. Like minus the sexual content I might have thought a high schooler wrote this. Not worth my time.
  • LOVE

  • The Olympian trainer vs. The Riptide fighter.

    By Annmric8
    Remington Tate is a fighter in the Underground League. The story is multi layered making it more than just a story about a fighter. That layered element comes in a package of femininity called Brooke. Remington is disciplined. He is alpha male. He's is barbaric. He is like a lion ready to pounce. Brooke was training for the Olympics when her world came crashing down when she suffered a knee injury. Rather than admit defeat for a sport she is passionate about she decided to learn how to become a sports rehabilitation specialist. Together Remington and Brooke share a passion for training and conditioning the body. The sexual tension resolves around the touches, the stares, the smells, and the movements being made while Brooke watches Remington fight and when she is conditioning his tired muscles. Brooke's character is highly aroused by Remington's physique but holds back her arousal to maintain professionalism. The story focuses on many elements: the fighting, the training, Brooke's injury, and the past. It becomes more about the passion of combining two characters that share a kismet for the act of achieving a goal driven by being a champion. While Brooke's dreams were crushed by her injury she still gets to succeed by helping others achieve success. Story told from Brooke's POV. It feels like Beauty and Beast. Remington the beast who is enamored with Brooke and Brooke the beauty who originally fought her bodies reaction to the beast. He also reminds me of the Hulk. One minute mean and angry and the next soft and gentle. The foreplay between music, training, and fighting is intense. Remy reminds me of a possessive animal claiming the female with touch, scent, and dominance. A few negatives was the constant use of the word "mine" and the need to rub semen on a body showing ownership. The words "Who do you belong to Brooke?" These phrases and words make my skin crawl with annoyance. For that it warrants a 4⭐️.

    I absolutely LOVE this series!! It was a little frustrating at first but only because Katy was able to draw me in emotionally but then it got good.. REAL GOOD!!
  • LOVED This book - Remy is one of my new favorite book boyfriends!

    By Brandee's Book Endings
    While I really liked this book overall and LOVED Remy, the 1st half of the book was 5+ stars for me, but slowed down to about a 4 for the 2nd half. So, I would have to rate this a 4.5? I am torn on the actual rating. Remy Remy Remy! I can hear myself cheering it or maybe it is some of the other things that the women at his fights scream to him. Hmmm, I’ll never tell! I don't know what it is exactly, well maybe I do, but Remy does it for me! Like "right. from. the. start". Katy did such a great job in describing him that I could easily picture him and all his hotness! As in - OMG hotness. I need a fan - LOL! I don't even like watching fighting!!!! I feel like Brooke at the first match she saw Remy. Have to look away, but drawn to him. I could not seem to put the book down. The first half I literally COULD.NOT.PUT.DOWN! While there are other fighter types of books that I have read and even loved, I am thinking Remy is my new favorite. While he has that whole dominant bad boy vibe, he has enough redeeming qualities that he was not off-putting to me and I felt bad for him. I was able to fly through this book - which is always a good sign that I am into a book. The sexual attraction and sparks that fly between Remy and Brooke is sizzling. I get to a certain part of the book and think it is FINALLY going to happen! I am ready for it, I want it! And I was so nervous, I was not going to get it LOL! I think my sexual frustration level was more than Brooke's LOL I loved it, I want more, but I wish that the 2nd half punched me as much as the first half did – don’t get me wrong, the second half was still good and if you have not read this series yet, now is the time to start it so you don’t have to wait to read the next one.
