In the international bestseller REAL, the unstoppable bad boy of the underground fighting circuit finally met his match. Hired to keep him in prime condition, Brooke Dumas unleashed a primal desire in Remington. Tate as vital as the air he breathes…and now he can't live without her.
Brooke never imagined she would end up with the man who is every woman's dream, but not all dreams end happily ever after, and just when they need each other the most, Brooke is torn away from the ringside. Now with distance and darkness between them, the only thing left is to fight for the love of the man she calls Mine.

I bought the 3 in the series. They could have made a reasonable book in one. Brooke was a weak character but I thought Remy was ok. Really got sick of hearing Brooke raving about how Remy made her body squirm at the beginning of each and every phase
don't think so
I listened to the first book Real and loved it but in the second one,Mine, I found Brooke to be unnecessarily whiny. I thought the author was probably just trying to fill the page with words.
The character could be less annoying. I just did not relate to her. (Spoiler alert) But I'm still glad that it worked out for the main characters in the end.
She did do a good job in character differentiation but I still found the performance to be lackluster.
Mine still could make a great movie even though I did not enjoy the book.
Wife, mom, and book lover
I love the characters, Brooke is not annoying like most main female characters, Remy's a sexy beast, and together their story is awesome
I love her voice and it's perfect for this kind of story
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
In my review of REAL (book 1), I mentioned that Remy had shot up to my top list of FAV MMA fighter heroes, well, scratch that….he's at the top of my list of epic romance heroes because I love Remy and his determination to conquer his personal struggles, and I also love the way he loves Brooke.
This book continues the beautiful, exciting saga as both Remy and Brooke are left with the aftermath of what happened at the end of book 1. Both Remy and Brooke's love is as strong as ever, but they still have to resolve issues that arise when dealing with the hurt after Brooke left. Brooke has to learn to deal with the jealousy of the lifestyle of a fighter and the throngs of women who try and push themselves on him. [Which believe me is not a real issue because Remy's devotion and love for Brooke is S-I-N-G-U-L-A-R. Seriously, he loves her like a lion. His love for her is hungry, intense, beautiful and passionate].
There's also the aspect of dealing with Remy's nemesis, Scorpion and Brooke's dirtbag sister, Nora. My favorite part of the story is the beautiful surprise the comes along and shakes everything up in Remy & Brooke's world. But, the good news is that the whole team is vibrant and very much present in this book, from Melanie (Brook'e fun best friend), to Riley, Pete, Diane, Coach. Both Brooke and Remy's parents also have a presence. In addition, we get to experience more of Remy's personal struggles with his medical condition and OMG it just breaks your heart so see him suffer (don't want to give that away from someone who has not read any of the books yet). But, some of the most beautiful experiences occur during suffering and I loved the words of encouragement and love that Brooke gave to Remy after one of his very hard days, in his personal battle.
This is one amazing sequel that doesn't miss a beat in heart-wrenching moments, and moments of ecstasy, alike. The energy and excitement that surrounds this epic romance is tangible and real. I have already begun a playlist with the songs that Remy and Brooke share with one another including their most memorable song, "Iris (Goo Goo Dolls)."
Narrator: Charlotte Penfield did an insanely brilliant job as narrator….seriously the woman has talent. She performed both Remy and Brooke's voices masterfully. This was one great audiobook experience!
As Brooke and Remy's obsessive love affair continues there's plenty of gripping drama, swoon-worthy romantic moments, sexy times, dark and angst ridden days, shocks, surprises and heartache to keep you riveted to this couple's struggles until the very end.
I'm keeping my review short because the joy of having the 3rd book ready and waiting is just too much excitement for me to handle. But, if you're in the mood for a hero that will blow you away with his good looks, his kindness, his vulnerabilities, his loving and intense words and, of course, his sex appeal then this is a must have series. There's a lucky heroine of course but she made some bad mistakes which were annoying but forgiven in the end.
Worth a credit? Absolutely, for sure, no question, totally worth a credit but I got it on sale and what a beautiful bargain it was.
If you like whiny characters, books with little plot and poor writing
The story was contrived and anti-climatic and the writing was poor. I lost track of the number of times she used the word "mine." It was frustrating to listen to the story.
