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?

I'm hooked!!! Remington Tate ~ what a great name.  There were so many things that drew me into this story. The beginning when Brooke and Remy meet~The way he sees her in the crowd and stares right at her then comes after her when she gets up to leave and kisses her. *swoon* Then when she thinks she is not going to hear from him again and he sends someone over with tickets and a pass. The way they show their feelings for each other through certain songs. And of course what may be my favorite part of the book...when Remy explains the situation to her about what happened in the last fight of the book. OMG...that about almost killed me!! lol So So Good!! 

Remy's character definitely confused me though in the beginning of the story with his feelings for Brooke.  I think it shocked me as much as Brooke when she was invited back to his hotel and only offered a job instead of what she was really looking for. lol   I wasn't really sure what to think about him. But I slowly started to fall for him and by the time he was telling Brooke how he had felt about her since the day he first met her ~ I was a total goner!!  I definitely cannot get enough of Remy!! 

Brooke ~ she is a tough character for me also.  It's not that I didn't like her but I definitely liked her a lot more towards the end of the book. Through most of the book it was like she was walking around in a sexual fog when around Remy and I felt pulled into it with her.  She really pissed me off the way she treated him in the hospital. She did make up for it in the end but I will have to wait until the next book to see if I totally forgive her. lol 

I ached for Remy about how he was treated then and now by his parents. I loved how Brooke was able to help calm him and bring him a sort of peace that he never had. His story was definitely a heart breaker and if anyone deserved a HEA it was definitely him.  

I loved Kate's descriptions of Remy and Brooke as a couple and their relationship.  Remy thinks of Brooke as his mate and Brooke describes his attentions to her like a lion's and I loved the way he was always scenting and touching her.  Oh and the sex...OMG..OFF THE CHARTS. Each sex scene was better than the last. Whew!! 

I liked Peter and Reilly except when they kept getting all the prostitutes for Remy. lol   Melanie was another great secondary character. She was so funny. I will be interested to see if anything more happens with her and Reilly. I also liked the little twist with Nora. So good!! 

This was such a fun read that definitely has my interest and has me desperately looking forward to more. I need more of Remy and Brooke.  After reading Real, Katy has earned a BIG fan in me. This is definitely a reread for me. 

Oh and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this cover.
