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.Um. So this book was a phenomenal read for me. I was nothing short of obsessed while reading and after finishing. I did have my moments of; we get it Brooke, he's hot. But, it didn't stop me from enjoying every sexy moment.
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?
For fans of Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster, Real offers a heart pumping and crazy ride of lust and attraction. It's sexually frustrating, nail biting, drama-filled and unforgettable. Remy's dealing with a lot and the way he handles himself made sense when his secrets were laid out on the table. He stills the show and I found myself wanting his presence on every page. Brooke is a great character too, but Remy is the star.
This book is not for the faint of heart and definitely an adult read, 17+. Everything about it makes me want to reread it, which I plan on doing soon. Mine (Real #2) comes out November 5, and I'm part of the blog tour so look for my review on November 13th!
