I wanted to read Real because of the cover. It is just that hot. Once I started reading Real I couldn’t put it down. I found myself sucked into Remington’s story. Real is the story of Remington and Brooke; two people that meet under unique circumstances and forge an unlikely relationship…but can it last.
Remington Tate is a popular fighter in the underground fighting circuit. He is quite the character. Remington is arrogant, sexy and just plain yummy. Once he starts fighting…he is off the charts hot. In addition to this Remington has some really dark demons. He can be moody, quiet and a little sweet.
Brooke Dumas is a sports therapist and receives an exclusive contract to work for Remington. She falls into lust with him pretty quickly. Brooke…I could take her or leave her. She was just an OK character. She had a few flaws that really bothered me. The biggest was when she left him in the hospital. Just didn’t make sense to me.
As a couple they generate some pretty good chemistry. Once Brooke and Remington finally (FINALLY) got together it was pretty awesome. Remington was really sweet at times and would play her song after song so she would understand him more. I thought it was a really unique thing.
Real has one of crazy cliffhanger. I wish I knew this going into the book because I am not a fan of them. I really have no idea which way the author will take the story. I will definitely read the next one because I want to see how Brooke and Remington’s relationship will turn out.
From the Author:
HOT. SEXY. POWERFUL. PAINFUL. REAL. The scorching international bestseller that strips away everything you’ve ever believed about passion . . . . Remington Tate has a bad-boy rep in and out of the ring, a granite-hard body, and a raw, animal power that sends his female fans into a frenzy. But from the moment their eyes lock, the only woman he wants is Brooke Dumas. His desire is pure, all-consuming, and REAL. Hired to keep his perfect body working like a machine, Brooke finally has the lucrative sports therapy job she’s been dreaming of. But as she tours the dangerous underground fighting circuit with Remy and his team, Brooke’s own body becomes alive with the most primal of hungers. If what happens between Brooke and Remy is ever as light as a flirtation, it quickly becomes an erotic obsession for them both, and promises so much more. But their white-hot lust has a dark side—and when Remy’s deepest secret comes to light and Brooke’s familial duties demand action, will the pair be able to hang on, or will everything that once seemed so real suddenly fade away like an illusion?
