An indie phenomenon and a New York Times and USA Today best seller, 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.
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?

This book was really intense. Not a book you can listen to and also have your mind half on other things. Loved how the author made Remy testosterone charged, and not half metro as some authors tend to fall into. The story flowed really well, but I was disappointed with the end a little. I don't believe Evans stayed true to Brooke's character, won't say more then that as I'd hate to spoil it for someone. Looking forward to Book 2.
Since I listened, there's no way for me to know (without actually reading it) whether this is one of those poorly written books with lots of errors (like subject/verb agreement), or if the narrator just changed a few words here and there to make it wrong, but it was bugging me. Besides that, much of the time, her voice was just so monotone. The story itself was pretty predictable, and I don't plan to continue the series after this one. It was on my TBR for a really long time, so I guess I'm glad I know now, but I didn't get out of this what many others apparently have. No biggie.

First, yes, this book was interesting and had it's steamy scenes. But it dragged in spots and the narrator was a little monotone as other reviewers have stated. There was good chemistry between the hero and heroine, but I expected more interaction between the two. It seemed like they spent a lot of time apart. Also, like another reviewer, I was really annoyed with the heroine for yelling at Remington when he was in the hospital and had just woken from a coma. Were I in her shoes, I would have stuck around to hear what he had to say for himself. As for the rest of the books in the series, I'm torn. The writing was good enough that I'd read more by this author, but I sort of want to leave well enough alone. The book had my HEA and I'm not sure I can take more angst between these two!
Liked the storyline ok, liked the characters ok, but somehow it just fell flat for me. Brooke was too internally whiney and needy, although that could just have been the narrator.
Sexy, mysterious, loving.
I love learning the details of Remy's condition and how Brooke deals with it.
She's a little more monotone than I would've liked.
Definitely made me cry! Happy and sad tears.
I would use the Bipolar disease angle differently. I think the character Remington did not act like he was in his Manic phase with her, he should have been sleepless having tons of sex with her and other people and spending all his money.
I realize that there is a sequel to this and I am not interested in reading or listening to it. I wish sequels would involve a DIFFERENT couple, there is NO erotic tension for the reader when a sequel is about the SAME couple!
Tell us about yourself!
Remy is a character who is unique and compelling
The world of underground boxing is not something I thought I would ever be interested in, but I found it fascinating. Please note - not rated by husband who is member - rated by his wife. I liked all 3 books.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook- and I always have an opinion to share.
Yes! This book was all everyone had told me it would be and more. I LOVED it. I felt it with every word. I felt their emotions swirling around me as the narrator worked her way through chapter after chapter of this fantastic story. I actually think I swooned.
One of the best books I have read/listened to and I am an avid reader! Hot, possessive, dominance. Remy is hot! The love Remy has for Brooke and the secret he holds inside. Great story line! You will not be able to put it down once you start listening!
This book is as good as the crossfire books! OMG and HOT HOT is all I can say, when you listen to this book make sure that if your husband is not near you that at least your vibrator is, because it's that good. Worth every penny.
