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

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

Remington Tate has a bad-boy rep in and out of the ring, a granite-hard body, and a raw, animal power that sends his female fans into a frenzy. But from the moment their eyes lock, the only woman he wants is Brooke Dumas. His desire is pure, all-consuming, and REAL.

Hired to keep his perfect body working like a machine, Brooke finally has the lucrative sports therapy job she’s been dreaming of. But as she tours the dangerous underground fighting circuit with Remy and his team, Brooke’s own body becomes alive with the most primal of hungers. If what happens between Brooke and Remy is ever as light as a flirtation, it quickly becomes an erotic obsession for them both, and promises so much more.

But their white-hot lust has a dark side—and when Remy’s deepest secret comes to light and Brooke’s familial duties demand action, will the pair be able to hang on, or will everything that once seemed so real suddenly fade away like an illusion?

  • A Knockout!

    By Nuts4cereal
    When I started reading this genre, I read a bunch of great books but Real was the first to really stick with me. I was sucked into the world of Remington "Riptide" Tate and Brooke Dumas and never wanted to leave. Remy is part of an underground fighting circuit. He's a god in and out of the ring but has some serious issues that are revealed later on in the book. During one of his fights he locks eyes with Brooke and from that point on, he decides that she is his. Brooke is attending the underground fight with some friends (great side characters by the way) and catches the eye of Remy. The attraction is there and with her system on overload, she decides she needs to leave. Remy proceeds to chase her down and approaches her in one of the sexiest ways I think I have ever read. Brooke is a former Olympic hopeful. With her dreams now shattered, she finds herself employed by Remy and his team to be his sports therapy manager. Working with him and on him daily sets the stage for an off the charts build up that drove me insane and kept the pages turning. This book is well written and delivers a powerful punch of emotions. It covers some serious topics, has a villain that adds a little more darkness to the storyline, gives you a love story that has you rooting for the lead characters from the very beginning and lets not forget the ridiculously HOT love scenes that may actually make you blush. I would highly recommend reading Real and the rest of the series as well. It truly is a Knockout series!

    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

    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.

  • 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⭐️.
