Blog Tour Stop + Giveaway: "Mine" by Katy Evans

(Real, Book 2)

“I will do anything to make her MINE.” —Remington Tate 

In the international bestseller REAL, the unstoppable bad boy of the Underground fighting circuit finally met his match. Hired to keep him in prime condition, Brooke Dumas unleashed a primal desire in Remington “Remy” Tate as vital as the air he breathes . . . and now he can’t live without her.

Brooke never imagined she would end up with the man who is every woman’s dream, but not all dreams end happily ever after, and just when they need each other the most, Brooke is torn away from the ringside. Now with distance and darkness between them, the only thing left is to fight for the love of the man she calls MINE.

5 Stars!

I should start this review off with this disclaimer: Real was my very first book hangover….EVER. If I can do this book even an ounce of justice with a decent review….it most certainly won’t be enough.  I love finding out the meaning of a book’s title as you are reading the book. That little ‘discovery’ is so neat to me. While reading this book, from the very beginning you understood immediately why it was called what it was and the title was perfect!

I will never, ever, get used to the sight of him in that ring. My heart whams excitedly into my rib cage while all my insides pulse with need, and my chest feels like a balloon about to burst in excitement. Hard, lean, and perfect, he is all dangerous, all beautiful and all mine. ~Brooke

“You’re everything I never knew I wanted.”
“And all mine, remember that tidbit.”
“Completely mine”, he says. ~Remington

This book oozed sexiness and sex appeal….it was so sexy and so lovingly written, I just wanted to crawl in the book and snuggle them both!! I love how Katy can make you feel the urgency of Remy’s love and affection towards Brooke. We learned A LOT about Remy in this book….so much so that I felt I had a better understanding of ‘him’. I loved learning more and seeing more of Brooke’s and Remy’s story. So full of love….

The synopsis on this book didn’t give ANYTHING away, so I will not be diving into the depths of the story in my review here so I do not spoil anything….I will, however, say that Remington goes black and has to deal with some deep issues, ones that Brooke had never had to really encounter. The depths he goes through to rectify the problem were very emotional and very heart wrenching for Brooke….and ME! Brooke learned a lot about the time she left Remy (end of Real) and what went on while she was gone. She deals with quite a bit of emotion while she is working through all the pain she caused him.

Brooke ends up having to be away from Remy for a little bit of time, and the distance apart and the time spent away from each other is so difficult, you can feel their pain. Brooke upset me in quite a few places and I wanted to shake her…but I understood the feelings she was feeling given her “state of mind”.  Remy made sure that she felt his love….even with his hatred of phones and technology, they made sure to keep the passion there and alive.

“All right. But who are you going to call first if it gets worse? ME. Who are you going to call when you need anything? ME. I’ll be your everything. I’ll be your fucking booty call by phone.  Anytime, wherever I am. Am I clear, Brooke?”

“I’m sorry. My mind froze on booty call.”

The pull on your emotions during this book is valid. Very much so. I highlighted so many parts to share and remember that I had to tone it down a bit just to write this review. It is so hard to put into words what this book did to me….the love that poured from the pages wrapped you UP. It engulfed you and made you feel all warm and cuddly….and dayum!!! It was sexy as hell! The love scenes…..whoo!! He was so possessive of her and knew exactly what he wanted and he always got it. Always. He is constantly rubbing her bottom lip with his thumb….and the vision that conjures up, it just makes me think that this big man is looking at her mouth like he wants to devour her!! It was such a great visual….my gosh, I couldn’t get enough of how *MUCH* Remington loved her and how hard he loved her. I just

You’re going to fucking love me if it kills me.” ~Remington

“I’ll be making you Mine your whole life.” ~Remington

By the time it was all said and done, this book just made me happy. So very happy. It was a perfectly written, wonderful addition to their growing story. I can’t wait to read Remy next. I know I will love it just as much, if not more. Once again, Katy hit the nail on the head. Such a great book.

I rate this book 5 insatiably loving stars. I want more and will get it….I know it!

Favorite quote from the book at a very emotional part:

“You’re blinded because you’re mine.”
“No, I see you because I’m yours.”
