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?

    Story
    "LOVED LOVED LOVED"
    What made the experience of listening to Real the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did a fantastic job! Really pulled you into the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brooke - she didn't judge Remy by his "weakness" but rather embraced it.


    What about Charlotte Penfield’s performance did you like?

    she truly kept you locked into the story and read at a enjoyable speed.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book has been a favorite of mine for awhile due to the characters hit home with me. The author does a fantastic job at focusing and flowing each important piece into each other to keep the reader (or listener) enthralled! Can't get into detail much without spoilers!


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to gush but don't want to give away too many spoilers! have to say it has it all.... lust, friendship, family bonds, dedication, heartbreak and HEA (or does it??????) I truly cannot wait for Katy Evans' next book to see what other great things she can show us! Rock on Katy!

    Story
    "Eye Opening to the torments of Menal Illness"

    Before reading this book, I had no idea how tormenting Bi-Polar could be for someone plagued by it. And the idea that a woman could willingly take on a relationship knowing that the man she loves is tormented in this way left me in awe. I couldn't have done it, but the heroine of this book did! In her ignorance, she made a few mistakes with RipTide, but I was left with the notion that she'd learn how to live with the effects Bi-Polar can create.
    This is a very different love story. It starts out rather slow and I almost decided not to listen to it because the narration was mono toned. However, give it time, because it does pick up and you won't be disappointed. Brook and Rip Tide share a bond as dedicated, disciplined athletes. However, both are also damaged and this story tells how they embrace those and their union makes both of their lives better.
    I enjoyed this book. I did listen to it in one session. Thank goodness I'm retired and have the time to do such a thing.
    There were times I wondered if Rip Tide was beyond being able to live with, but you'll see how that's concern is squashed as you listen.
    It's very erotic and this listen is done strongly from the female's experiences. Different, but very interesting and well done.

    "I Wanted To Love This Book"

    Maybe I just expected too much because of the reviews. To sum up how I feel right now I will say this........
    STOP with the FEELINGS already! So I read only one bad review about this book and in summary it basically said they wanted more substance to the relationship and it was all really about sex.......so my first thought was "sign me up" Reviews like that are EXACTLY why I buy books (so sluty of me I know) However, what that reader really meant to say was less feelings and MORE talking! I don't understand why authors write a book from 1st person POV yet the main character pretty much narrates the entire book and lets us know a MILLION times every time she takes a deep breath, has a shiver, goose bumps, she is wet ect.
    Nobody in this books talks. Any time any character in this book asked a question the author wrote 5-6 paragraphs about the main character's feelings towards him and what her answer will be.
    Why I still gave this book 3 stars because the main character did have a good sense of humor and when the book got steamy (finally at 55%) it really got steamy! It was also a well written book for people who like Narrative books and LOTS and LOTS of feeling. The plot was also really good!
    I still think it's worth reading if you can get past the things I have listed. I never want to steer anyone away from buying a book, its just one person's opinion. I will listen the next book in the series. The Narrator did a good job with the delivery of the story.

    "Love the Story!"
    Where does Real rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10!


    What other book might you compare Real to and why?

    Love Unscripted by Tina Reber, the love trust issue. Both male characters showing the love but not saying L word and the protection. Maybe a little of Fifty Shades.


    What does Charlotte Penfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Charlotte needed to be a little more into the character - I felt she just reading the book to us. Sometimes she did express the character but it wasn't consistent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The writer went too much in details before getting to the point. I loved the story, but I felt it went on and on.

    "A REAL good place to start!"

    I have read so many of Katy Evans recent books and loved them all, so I felt compelled to go back to the beginning with Real. I'm so glad I did! Remy and Brooke's story is filled with mystery, tension, passion and heart pounding exhilaration! I'm definitely going to have to finish the Real series now!
    The narrator's voice definitely suited the character. Young, youthful and easy to listen to. My only complaint was that other the characters dialogue wasn't characterized in a different tone so it sometimes made it a little hard to follow scenes where there were conversations between two or more people.

    "so hot"

    love this book series. I've read them all and now listening. I wish the narrator was more expressive. Her time is almost monotone. But I still love listening.
