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?

My Review

*Sigh* This book made me ugly cry on the train. The amount of swooning that occurred during the reading of this book was slightly ridiculous! I. Just. Loved. It.

Almost instantly I fell head over heels in lust with Remington 'Riptide' Tate, then as I read, I fell in love right along with Brooke. What an introduction we had to Remy, instantly drooling everywhere- he is ultimate alpha material! I loved that there was more to Remy than the cocky, confident and gorgeous man that meets the eye. He's got some pretty deep-rooted issues, and is a bit unstable, but it also made my heart ache for him and gave him so much more depth than a lot of other book guys. Underneath it all he has a huge heart, and would do absolutely anything for Brooke.

Brooke is so, so likable as our heroine, she connects with Remy in a way she's never experienced before. She's instantly lusting after him (as any sane woman would), but it's not long before that develops into something a lot deeper. She used to be an athlete before an injury meant that she couldn't compete again, and I loved how they connected about sports and fitness as well. They're made for each other.

The sexual tension in this book is so palpable! I could feel it in every sentence, and the anticipation was killing me. The build up to them actually having sex was unbelievably hot, and I loved that he wanted her to want him and not 'Riptide'.

The best thing about this book is that it's not just delicious sexual tension and general hotness, but it's also about an intense and passionate love that storms into your own heart. I loved every moment, and I'm pretty sure that Remy's topped my list of favourite book boyfriends!
If you haven't read Real yet, you are seriously missing out! I just wish that I had read this earlier, and I am so excited for the next book, Mine!
