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?

    "Intense!!! Loved It"

    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.

    "Phenomenal story"

    I love Remy and Brooke. He is the ultimate alpha male. The narrator did an awesome job and kept you engrossed in the story. I have read Real in ebook and am do glad I listened to audible.

    "Ugh narrator"

    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.

    "It was good, but . . ."
    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "good book"

    I wish Remington's voice was a little more deep or hard. Since he is a fighter and a very complicated person.

    "Can't get enough!!"

    This book was so good. I'm a few years behind the Remy train, but now that I have read the first book, I'm hooked! Remington...so sexy, so hot! I feel a book hangover coming. I couldn't put this book down. It had everything I ever look for in a book. It was so fulfilling, so hot. I can't wait to read the next one!!

    Story
    "Narrator sounded like a late-night chat call girl."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Real to be better than the print version?

    The story was great, but the narrator ruined a lot of it for me. She sounded like one of those late-night call-girl ads...for the entire book! Sure, the slow, sultry, seductive voice works for the sexy parts, but she couldn't work up a normal-sounding and pacing voice for the rest of the story. I enjoyed other Katy Evans books, but this one was a lot less enjoyable due to the poor voice acting.


    How could the performance have been better?

    She could've used a normal, professional tone, and a less sticky pace for the non-sexual parts of the story.

    "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.
