Publisher's Summary

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.

A competition…

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?

LOVED this book!

Last month I read the Manwhore series by Katy Evans and enjoyed it, so when I found myself searching for a new book to listen to while working this weekend I came across Real and decided to give it a shot.

I have to say, I loved it! Generally its not my genre, I tend to stick to paranormal romances but I'm running out of good books there so I've been venturing out. So far I'm happy with what I'm finding.

I love that in Katy's books there isn't a standard hero, or character in distress that needs saving. Both characters are flawed but confident in themselves. They save each other even though no one really needed saving. They are both kind of oblivious when it comes to reading other people and the situation, but that is what makes for an interesting story, because had they gotten together in the first chapter there would be no need for the 13 that followed.

The story is filled with action, both in the ring and in the bed... and occasionally a restaurant.
There is comedy, drama, romance, frustration, suspense, and so much more. It's an all around good story that kept me up until 3am when I just couldn't keep my eyes open anymore, and had me grabbing my kindle first thing the next morning to finish!

Not realistic

I felt like this book was not realistic!! No one is ready that quick all the time and I also thought Brook was not the brightest!! She made stupid decisions and then wonders why everyone is so mad. I can't with her right now.

Crazy about this series

So glad to have stumbled upon a great series. The first installment is absolutely fantastic and was so hard to put down. Initially I wasn't crazy about the story line, but wow it's great. Again, incredibly difficult to stop listening!!! Katy Evans is awesome.

Hot and Heartbreaking

What did you love best about Real?

Remington is a hot and likable character. The story is clever and steamy! I have to say that I liked him more than Brook! She was some what frustrating at times and whiny! Overall hot story and worth a credit.

Knockout

It was a nice follow up to Real - I'm glad the author didn't play off the bipolarism as something that can be "fixed." Remy is as possessive as ever, and the couple really come into their own.

Brooke got a bit needy and got on my last nerve when her insecurities, but it finishes pretty well.

Fell in love with Remy. Although it was a bit predictable. Loved the ending :)

Remington Tate...best book boyfriend ever

The narrator read a little slowly and dully, but not too bad. I love the Real series and everything about Remy and Brook. One of my favorite contemporary romances...and I've read a ton. Book 2 is just as good!

Storyline better than the narrator

I've heard Charlotte narrate before but this time she sounds like she is secretly reading the story to her girlfriends in the closet with a flashlight. It's not very exciting listen.

The storyline is unique and interesting. I was annoyed at the woman who has a man who wants to wait and actually get to know each other before sex. She was a twit about that but it's worth a credit. Can't wait to listen to Sebastian York in Remys book
