“I’m every woman’s adventure, damn you, and I don’t want to be yours. I want to be your fucking REAL. You get that? If I fuck you, I want you to belong to me. To be mine. I want you to give yourself to me–not Riptide!”
was HOT HOT HOT.
My panties didn’t stand a chance against all that sexual tension but once they really got down to it… I was gone.
Remy, banned from boxing professionally, is an underground fighter. And with dark hair, blue eyes and a killer smile her gets very
far with women. Therefore, its no surprise that the second Brooke locks eyes with him, she’s hit with insta-lust. So, when he offers her a job, she doesn’t hesitate in snatching it up. But with Remy, there’s more than meets the eyes and Brooke makes it her mission to peal back all the layers and see what lies beneath the sexy package.
I liked Brooke but I didn’t really love
her character. I wasn’t able to feel anything besides her all-consuming lust (and maybe a little love in the end) towards Remy. I mostly felt like an observer.
Where to start with Remy?
He. Was. Spectacular.
There was a good balance between the cocky side of him and the vulnerable side. And although Real
is told from Brooke’s POV, I felt more in tuned to his feelings than I did with Brooke’s. “He’s so fucking alpha I can’t stand him!”
He could be sweet and observant one second, and then aggressive and protective the next. “I’ve never seen a man go after a woman like that. Holy shit, it’s like porn with romance.”
Katy Evans did not
hold back in the sexual tension department. His hands clamp around me, and he crushes me to his body as he slides his nose along the shell of my ear. “When I take you, you’ll be mine,” he says, a soft promise in my ear. He slides his thumb along my jaw, then gently kisses my earlobe. “You need to be certain.” His eyes are so hot, that I’m on fire with the lust in them, and the word “mine” makes the empty space between my legs swell with longing. “I want you to know me first, and then, I want you to let me know if you still want me to take you.”
After their sexy as hell first meeting, I was primped and ready for things to get started and when she got offered a job instead… I swear the only thing going on in my head was:BUT
even after I noticed what a great way for them to get all close and comfortable, I still had to wait. At every new scene I’d think okay, this is the moment
No it’s not.
When the moment finally did come, it was awesome.
I wouldn’t have expected anything less than perfect after all that teasing I had to endure. Remy is just so delicious. “… I saw this lovely girl in Seattle, with big gold eyes, and pink, full lips… and I wondered if she could understand me…”
When they weren’t going at it like rabbits, though, they had some really beautiful, heart-warming moments. The whole music exchange thing they had going on was so cute.
I loved seeing what they were going to play for each other next.
And that epilogue was perfect. “I want you, Brooke, for me. I can hurt you, I can do stupid shit, but I… I’m so fucking in love with you I don’t even know what to do with myself anymore.”
