BOOK REVIEW...Real (Real, Raw & Ripped #1) by Katy Evans
"Hi, I'm Remington" Swoon.
I was recommended this book by a friend since we both love possessive alpha male characters AND MAN WAS I NOT DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!
OMG. Remy, you have OFFICIALLY climbed the ranks of all of my book boyfriends and peaked to have me fangirling you like how I do with Travis Maddox!! Will you be my other hubby and we can make smexy babies together? :)
Remington "Remy" Tate is a flawed boxer who suffers from a manic mood disorder. Brooke Dumas, is an ex-Olympic hopefulnow turned sports rehab specialist who finds herself at an Underground boxing fight and is sighted by Remy and both are instantly smitten with one another.
Remy later contracts Brooke to work for him *and to get closer to her* and the two of them find themselves in a tumultuous love that's off the charts scorching hot!!
I really loved the diversity and vulnerability these characters brought out of each other. I'm familiar with the mood disorder that Remy has since my best friend's brother suffers from it so I could feel for him and his apprehensiveness about revealing his condition to Brooke. He REALLY wanted Brooke to KNOW HIM and "UNDERSTAND HIM" but was understandably fearful that she'd turn her back on him and leave him forever.
Brooke, on the other hand, was a likable character that I could relate to. She wholeheartedly loves "REAL Remy" and "BLACK Remy" and accepts him the good and the bad which really shows a lot to Remy and her as a character.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and am anxious for the sequel. *squeals* Seriously, guys PICK UP THIS BOOK. I'm not kidding!! :)
