The fourth story in the new-adult series that began with the New York Times best seller Real, featuring Brooke's best friend, Melanie, and the rogue she can't resist.
Greyson King. My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He's the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something.
His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero.
There's zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.
He may leave no trace of him anywhere, but his imprint is in me, in my very soul - and I hate that a mere look at him commands the beat of my heart. The temperature of my body.
I've looked for love my entire life. I've waited for the butterflies, the rainbows....
Instead I'm in a free fall of emotions and there's no one to catch me but the one man I should be running away from. The one man I thought was my prince charming.
Except this prince charming went rogue.
Greyson will stop at nothing to make me be with him. He'll let no one stand in our way, will allow no one to threaten me, and maybe this is what scares me most of all.
What will my rogue do to keep me?

I just don't understand. Why audible insists on using Shayna Thibodeaux as a narrator for all these great upcoming books when I have heard and read just how unsuitable her voice is for romance.
The story was great. I love Katy Evans writing style. Her books always include a great plot along with the romance.
Shayna Thibodeaux. Stop using Shayna Thibodeaux as a narrator for romance. She is more suitable for teen books that DON'T read as a romance. I just really don't understand why audible ignores the bad reviews. Follow the fans advice withShayna Thibodeaux, STOP using her as a romance narrator. Please, the audiobook might sell more. Her voice is very immature, she sounds like a 14 year old. This book is supposed to be a bit steamy and sexy but it sounded ridiculous.
I stopped listening and bought the e-book. It was wonderful. I'm returning this book.
Yes, audible needs to put some effort into casting. Teen books need a teen like narrator.YA books need a young adult narrator.New adult needs an older more mature read. I'm a little concerned why producers at audible seem to think its ok using a very young, immature, 14 yr old voice for a women in her mid twenties - thirty. REALLY????
Rogue was all kinds of yummy fantasticalness!! I've officially added Grayson King to my list of the "hottest and baddest of bad boy book boyfriends". If you've read Remy, Mine & Real, wait 'til you get a gander at Grayson! This story of his and Melanie's love affair was dramatic, intense and sexual, with a touch of suspense. The banter between these two was witty and sarcastic, but endearing as they both tried to keep from being to vulnerable. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of Shayna Thibodeaux's narration, it's like listening to a poorly delivered spoken word/poetry session--not my cup of tea for 7-9 hours. The saving grace was the male narrator and the overall storyline. Grayson was definitely the gritty dark version of prince charming, and he will rock your world! I highly recommend this book, and would spend a credit on it in a heartbeat.
The story needs some more background interests and storylines
Yes but that was the reason I purchased this one I did have the previous ones and loved them
If the male narrator told the whole story! The female narrator killed it for me she seemed to be always going 200miles per hour no difference in the storylines
I was really disappointed since the previous books were so much better.
Please, please, please, do not use Shayna Thibodeaux for any of the upcoming narrators for this REAL series (or any audio book for that matter). She ruined the story for me! If I hadn't already liked Melanie from the previous 3 books, I would have disliked her character because of her voice. Melanie's voice was grating, annoying and so unpleasant to listen to, I found myself checking to see how much time was remaining for Melanie's POV and hoping to hear Jason again.
I loved Greyson and his possessive and devoted behavior. I tried to get past Melanie's voice and actually enjoy Melanie's POV, but it was difficult. All the scenes where Greyson and Melanie interacted and the sex scenes were hot! I think my favorite part was when Melanie awoke from her coma.
Jason Carpenter was great. ANYONE other than Shayna Thibodeaux. Although my favorite male narrator is Sebastian York, when I see he's one of the narrators, I almost purchase the book without reading the reviews!
Anxiously await for the 4th book, "Ripped" which will be Pandora's story. I hope we get to see more of Brooke, Remy, Melanie and Greyson.
I absolutely love the REAL series! Remy and Brooke's story was so touching and wonderful. I fell in love with Remy...and of course with Sebastian York as the narrator, how could you keep from falling in love with Remy!
I came very close many times during the story to take other reviewers advice and stop listening and purchase "Rogue" on my Kindle, just to escape Shayna Thibodeaux, but I stuck it out to the end!
Drama, Sweet and Sexy with a capitol S
Grayson because he was similar to Remy and you knew that he always had a good reason for what he was doing..
Grayson and I did Like Mel as well..
When he admitted to watching her for so long and saying I don't care how many people you have been with you're mine.
To really get a feel for this book I would suggest starting from book one which was real, mine, Remy.. then read this one so that you understand why Ms. Evans didn't talk about Remy and Brook so to much. it picks up a month before Remy and B get married but if you read Remy you know that book ended right after they got married.. I am looking forward to reading about Pandora's story.
I've listened to the all previous books in the series and really liked them but this is my favorite. I loved the rawness of the two main characters. They are both flawed and broken. What I love about Melanie is that she's not the goody two shoe virgin that most books have and honestly how many virgins in their twenties are out there nowadays. And what I love about Grayson is that he understands her and doesn't judge. And he really is a bad ass not one that plays at it. What really made this a great audio book was the two narrators. And the story told from both main characters perspectives. The narrators both did a great job. Especially the male narrator.
SMEXY TRUE LOVE
The passion lit me on fire from the first moment they met and still hasn't stopped and I've been done with the book for an hour now. Nothing is more powerful than two soul mates finding one another. The energy, the exciting story never stopped. I haven't eaten all day because I had so many butterflies as the brilliantly written and narrated book played all day, almost non-stop. Great plot! I love that in a romance story. It's hard to find both.
Absolutely! Even the flashes back to her earlier books charachters were well explained and tied in wonderfully with this one. I am in the middle of the summer and can't wait for Christmas because the next book comes out in December! Katy, Katy, Katy..... how can you be so cruel! :) I suppose even brilliant authors even need to have a life.
Both narrator's were flawless. I've heard them both in other books and they both have the ability to do many characters in a story and give them true life. Great choices! I hope they do "Ripped" as well. I would love to hear them read any of my books.
I only occasionally write reviews. Only if the story has made me feel emotion deeply. I've read hundreds and hundreds of ebooks, and listened to my share as well. Katy Evan's REAL series of books are unsurpassed. I only wish that I could read more of them until her next comes out. Thank you, Katy, and DON'T MISS THIS BOOK,/Audiobook! DON'T MISS ANY OF THE REAL SERIES!
I got 4 hrs into it and just couldn't take anymore. The female narration is horrible! All I imagine is someone standing there reading it to me. She talks fast and breathy, it's so annoying. I can't get in to the story at all. Very disappointed. I'm returning this and buying the book. I love Katy Evans but not this narration! I don't know why they didn't use the other ones from the previous 3 books.
Loved the story.. Did not care for audio
Intensity and characters
Loved Jason. Did not like Shayna at all!
Greyson!!! He is super HOT and intimidating!!
When they were together!!!
The narrators, Jason Carpenter and Shayna Thibodeaux, have amazing voices. Their tones are so sexy, seductive, smooth, perfect for the Greyson and Melanie. I love listening to audiobooks because they help me transport myself into the story and when the voice of the narrator, or narrators match the character’s personality, it feels way much better. And this happened with this audiobook. When Greyson was in his secret world, when Melanie was with her friends, it was almost like watching them. Amazing audiobook.
The finale!!! I love it!!
Oops! Katy Evans did it again! WOW!! This book!! WOW!! So hot!! Did I say hot? No, right!! THIS BOOKS IS SO FREAKING HOT! I NEED A GREYSON RIGHT NOW!
This book made me feel anxious. I couldn’t put it down, i even woke up at 1am to finish it. The storyline is very good and I only wanted to know what would happen when she finds out about the truth. I liked how they both doubted about themselves but when they were near to each other, they could only be more sure about their relationship, they could only love and worship one another. The way their relationship started wasn’t the best, but it was hot, so i don’t mind.
When I read Real Series, Melanie was shown as a happy and strong girl, who did whatever she wanted and who ever she wanted. I liked her. In this book, I could meet the real Melanie. She has insecurities and low self esteem. Thank God she found Greyson. Or Greyson found her. I love how she is when they are together. I love how he treats her. I love how he tries to be better for her, so she can be better for him. She found the man she always dreamed of and thought she would never find.
Katy knows how to write an alpha male!! Greyson is intimidating, smart, the real bad ass. He is also very sexy, domineering, and he has a lot of kink in himself. I’d have loved to know what he thought the first time he set eyes on Melanie. But knowing everything he felt and thought when they were together and how much he loved her was the best of this book. I love a man’s POV, and Greyson’s POV is one of the best i’ve read so far.
I love the interactions with Broke and Remy. It made me wanna read their books again. I was a little annoyed about Pandora, why couldn’t she be happy for Melanie?, but her last move saved everything and for that, I’m grateful. Mel’s relationship with her parents is so cool. I like them, they are great.
Even though there is one part of the story that is missing and I’d have loved to read it, I am so happy with the end. It is perfect. I want more! Can I have more Greyson for me? Pretty please?? Amazing Book Katy Evans. You books are the best!
