First off i need to clarify that there are only a handful of books that leave me like, WOW.. where I have a book hangover from them, FSOG was one and then Opal by Jennifer L Armentrout was the other. Both of those book s are wholly different from Real but Real had just the same effect on me that they did. I was completely shocked by this book and drawn in from the first words.
Brooke Dumas was fresh out of college and looking for work, after loosing her dream of going to the Olympics for track from a torn ACL, she got into sports medicine. She meets Remington ‘Riptide’ Tate at an underground boxing match and he thoroughly swirled her insides all around, he went after her to give her a kiss and ask her name, leaving her all..
Remington Tate is like sex on a stick, he oozes sex from the moment he is introduced. He’s your typical cocky bastard who knows he’s hot as hell, I mean he has an 8 pack!!! I wasn’t even 10% into the book and I was already hooked on him
He ask her to his hotel room, but not for what she thinks, he wants to hire her to be his sports rehab specialist to travel with him while he is on tour doing the underground boxing thing, she agrees because she needs a job and she is also drawn to Remy in a way that she has never been drawn to anyone before in her life. They start a sort of friendship, exchanging songs on each other’s iPod’s for the other to listen to and when he played her “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls, you know the one
“And i’d give up forever to touch you…”
Yea, I think i melted when she did and I’ve had it on repeat for the duration of the book and maybe a little bit after. But after receiving mixed signals from him and getting increasingly sexually frustrated Brooke has had it, she wants him and she wants him now. But Brooke has no idea what she is asking for
“When I take you, I want you to be mine, you need to be certain, I want you to know me first, and then I want you to let me know if you still want me to take you.”
Can you say. WHOA! Remington’s secret is the not you’re typical hot guy secret, I was both shocked and maybe fell in love with him a little more because of it. Of course there is sex, I mean hello with a man this hot there HAS to be sex, but it was so much more than that, I love books that have more than just sex! Remey keeps everyone on edge with his championship on the line and there almost, but not really relationship, but is Brooke sure this is what she wants after finding out his secret?
I was upset at the end of this book only because it was over and wanted more. again I was in a book hangover but also swoony
If i had this blog at the time of FSOG then I would have done this for those books but since i didn’t I am doing my first ever 6 out of 5 stars! there I said can’t take it back.
Katy Evans writing is like non that I have ever read, it sucks you in, it’s so full of adjectives and analogies and since I’m a visual kinda gal I loved them all! I can’t wait for more!
