I couldn't put it down and then when I did finish the book I had to read it again.

I know this line gets quoted all the time, but it is the best way to express just how much Remy wants from Brooke.
Jessica Leigh (Lovin' Los Libros)
The story line is great, the characters are well developed, and the love scenes are steamy!

I hope my husband never reads my book reviews because this one may cause some turmoil in our marriage. While we all have book boyfriends (Kellan, Gideon, Christian...) I am officially claiming Remington Tate as my book husband. I want to have little book babies with him. ( No slight to my real life babies of course!)
This book rocked my socks, my world and everything in between. While some readers have soft spots for bikers, sweet spots for rock stars, the hots for billionaires, I have a super girlie hard on for fighters/ boxers. Ms. Evans' RIP is the fighter of my book dreams. Her story is an emotional journey of angst, tenderness and panty dropping hotness. I am counting the days until Remy and Mine are out. Ms. Evans is my new book best friend. (Jeez, now I have to keep this from my besties too!)

My Thoughts:
Star rating: 5 out of 5
Heat rating: you will be blushing a LOT (I suggest a fan)!

Remington Tate. I don't think I have ever crushed on a character in a book more than I did while reading REAL! I started reading this book on a road trip with my family and found myself sneaking away with my Kindle during "family" time just so I could keep reading. This book was so addicting, I had to have more and I devoured it in just a few hours. I am not a reader who re-reads books, but I WILL be re-reading this book very soon. REAL was so good that immediately after finishing, I contacted Katy Evans begging for more and asking (ok, demanding/pleading) when she was releasing more in this series. (good news there will be more).

I am totally blown away by this book and her writing. I read a LOT of books (84 so far this year alone) and hands down REAL was one of, if not the best, books I have read. Katy Evans is a DEBUT author and knocked this book out of the park. Well done, my friend, well done. I have been gushing about this book for weeks to my husband, my friends, Katy (poor thing) and all my outlets in social media. YES, it is that good (NO, I don't gush like this over every book I read, just a handful in the last year).

Words fail me about how to explain/describe this book... but trust me, if you can only buy one book this month, buy REAL. It will not disappoint. I will try to sum up the book without giving away too much, you need to read it fresh, unspoiled. (maybe not the best book to read at work/in front of family because it is HOT and will make you blush).

The book starts when Brooke Dumas was dragged to an underground fight by her best friend, Melanie.

To sum up how I feel right now I will say this........
STOP with the FEELINGS already! So I read only one bad review about this book and in summary it basically said they wanted more substance to the relationship and it was all really about sex.......so my first thought was "sign me up" Reviews like that are EXACTLY why I buy books (so sluty of me I know)However, what that reader really meant to say was less feelings and MORE talking! I don't understand why authors write a book from 1st person POV yet the main character pretty much narrates the entire book and lets us know a MILLION times every time she takes a deep breath, has a shiver, goose bumps, ect. Nobody in this books talks. Any time any character in this book asked a question the author wrote 5-6 paragraphs about the main character's feelings towards what her answer will be.
Why I still gave this book 3 stars because the main character did have a good sense of humor and when the book got steamy (finally at 55%) it really got steamy! It was also a well written book for people who like Narrative books and LOTS and LOTS of feeling. The plot was also really good!
I still think it's worth reading if you can get past the things I have listed. I never want to steer anyone away from buying a book, its just one person's opinion.

Let me just say I've read a lot of books and Beautiful Disaster is one of my favorites only bc it's about a fighter, and oh so smoking hot Travis Maddox. I absolutely LOVE romance books but romance, fighting and sex all in one is the all time PERFECT story a author can write.

Real is one AMAZING story about a fighter named Remy that is Bipolar as well as Manic Depressive.
He is unbelievable during his fighting scenes but most of all during his mental episodes.

Brooke is a strong independent woman looking to pick up her life from where her dreams have been shattered. She's totally loveable and a sweetheart.

If you love a good, intense, emotion filled story with a freaking AWESOME HEA, then Real is for you.

I cannot wait until the next book comes out. I don't want this story with Remy and Brooke to end.

Author Katy Evans nailed this story line perfectly and I will be definitely promoting this book to my Booker friends :)

Remington is an underground fighter at the top of his game and headed for the championship. Lightning strikes during a fight when he spots a girl in the crowd and it's love at first sight. Brooke follows her best friend Melanie to an underground fight, she is shocked when the huge, gorgeous fighter leaves the ring in the middle of a fight to get her name and steal a kiss.

Ok I am serious my summary was better than the whole book. The first half of the book is spent describing Remington's body and Brooke's bodies reaction to it, pages and pages of it. The emotions are flat, the storyline confusing, and the ending takes an even bigger turn into ridiculous. I am astounded this book received so many high ratings......but I guess to each his own(or this author has a lot of friends?).

I am mad that I wasted my time and money. I am gonna ask for a refund.
