Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance

HOT. SEXY. POWERFUL. PAINFUL. REAL. The scorching international bestseller that strips away everything you've ever believed about passion . . . .

Remington Tate has a bad-boy rep in and out of the ring, a granite-hard body, and a raw, animal power that sends his female fans into a frenzy. But from the moment their eyes lock, the only woman he wants is Brooke Dumas. His desire is pure, all-consuming, and REAL.

Hired to keep his perfect body working like a machine, Brooke finally has the lucrative sports therapy job she's been dreaming of. But as she tours the dangerous underground fighting circuit with Remy and his team, Brooke's own body becomes alive with the most primal of hungers. If what happens between Brooke and Remy is ever as light as a flirtation, it quickly becomes an erotic obsession for them both, and promises so much more.

But their white-hot lust has a dark side—and when Remy's deepest secret comes to light and Brooke's familial duties demand action, will the pair be able to hang on, or will everything that once seemed so real suddenly fade away like an illusion?

If you are an experienced reader who likes your stories with a heavy dose of spice, then you know what it's like when you find a perfect story. It is one that hits in all the right spots -- from storyline to characters to all the heat in between.

REAL by Katy Evans is one of those books. By the time I finished the last paragraph, I could feel the adrenaline literally pumping through my veins. It takes a very skilled writer to elicit this kind of reaction in a reader, but the combination of a mixed martial arts storyline with a gut-wrenchingly complicated relationship will do it.

Remington "Riptide" Tate, known for his skill both in and out of the ring, wants Brooke Dumas from the very moment he spots her in the crowd. Intrigued and certainly attracted to this hulking display of masculinity, Brooke becomes the light to his darkness. She soon realizes that there is a tortured soul underneath all those muscles. The question is whether she can handle the real Riptide.

Midway through the book, I could feel the heat creeping up my neck and the pink in my cheeks. Yes, it is simply that good. Remington could be the poster boy for ultimate hotness. He's in a completely different class than Gideon Cross or Christian Grey, but there's plenty of room on my book boyfriend shelf.

The best part is that REAL is the first in a series...and the other books are also available. I can't wait to read Remington's perspective. If you are looking for a book guaranteed to make you squirm and raise your internal heat, this is it.
