Real by Katy Evans

 Real (Real, Raw & Ripped, #1)

An indie phenomenon and New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller, the first in a heartwrenching New Adult series about a beautiful young sports rehab specialist who can't fight her attraction to a dangerously sexy underground fighter. A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…

He even makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents...

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?


Real.  This one word describes my feelings regarding this book that was written by Katy Evans.  The storyline and characters are so realistic that I felt that I was living and experiencing the story with them. This book has to be one of my all time favorite reads. I have read it several times and I fall in love with both the storyline and the characters more and more every time.

Katy Evans is able to reveal the dark depths of mental illness and how it can affect not only the individual that is suffering from it, but others that care about that individual. The banter between Brooke and Remmington is captivating and entertaining. I loved how even though they were unable to express their feelings through words, they were able to show each other their true feelings through music.

The story also presents surprising twists and turns. With each page I craved more of the story that was being revealed to me. I have to admit that I may have fallen a little in love with Remy and I can't wait for the sequel to have more of their story revealed! -Kelly

Ahh, Remy. Remy!  Remy!!   By far my favorite book boyfriend!  Real is my absolute favorite book and I have read so so so many, I may officially be an addict!  Katy Evans held me captive the entire time and I loved every minute of it!

Remy and Brooke's story was so Real. The attraction was immediate but still believable.  Brooke is strong and compassionate. Remy is a fighter with a troubled past. Watching them build their relationship while dealing with family issues, outside pressures and Remy's bipolar disorder was emotional, intense, heartbreaking, sweet, sexy, hot, funny and Real.  You are captivated by the characters and their stories immediately.  I cannot believe that this is a Debut book.  Katy Evans was able to write in such a way that it all felt REAL!

Waiting with much anticipation for the next book by Katy Evans and getting my Remy fix!!!   -Tynna
