Real by Katy Evans Book Review

 




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
.







5 Stars

Real - Raw - Ripped two words best describe this book - REMINGTON TATE.

Sex on a stick……………. (Blushes)

** My. God. Dimples. Dark scruffy jaw. Boyish smile. Man’s body. Killer tan **

He’s mesmerizing perfect and incredibly hard. Everything, from his beautifully slim hips and narrow waist to his broad shoulders, is SOLID.

(( I was hooked )) lol.. Ok Ladies that the only teaser I am giving you! lol.

Today I am having a serious
book hang over. I am so besotted by Remy and this story, I’m not quite sure I will ever get over my fictional character crush sigh. (Licks lips)

I don’t think I have highlighted so much in one story as I did this one... I honeslty think I have because maybe Im crushing On Remy more then I should .. snickers.


The Chemistry between Remy and Brooke was mind blowing, panty sweltering, smokin hot, combustible, mouth agape and just totally smouldering. Did I say darn HOT!!!! Yes an inferno!

The chemistry was off the charts and I felt as tortured as Brooke waiting till 51 % for Remy to get to his senses loll. The sex and magic was just totally OFF THE CHARTS!! I THINK MY E READER MAY HAVE ALMOST MELTED!! OR WAS IT ME GRIPPING IT SO DAMM TIGHT (blushes)

Once I got past almost fainting from sexual frustration... I was still mouth agape none the less till the very last page.

3am I had this
book devoured by - One sitting of just total hotness - fantastic storyline and many moments where I was aching for both characters.

Music plays an important part within this story, Remy finds it hard to express his feelings and often uses music and an outlet. So between Brooke and Remy things are said but not in there own words through Lyrics within music. The words often used are heartfelt and romantic.. This was an important part of the growth of the relationship between them.

Remy - is a flawed, alpha male, buff, bold, dominant and so
dam sexy that all the girls will fall in love with him. He has issues that he thinks no one can love him for, and deals with life each day as it comes. He suffers on many levels, but upon meeting Brooke, his life changes. It changes for them both.

His love for her is infinite - possessive, combustible, and what girl doesn’t love ** A GRADE BEEF ** TOTALLY BRAWN - protective alpha male.

Despite his issues Brooke falls madly in love with him. On a whirlwind of events, and a roller coaster of a ride, we are taken to every level possible with this amazing read and these fantastic characters.

I loved all the characters in this story, they all had their place within the pages and I can say I enjoyed every
dam thing about this story.

AND I CAN NOT BELIVE THIS IS KATY'S DEBUT NOVEL. GIRL YOU ROCKED MY SOCKS AND REMY WELL..... WE WONT GO THERE ** GRINS **


This book is certainly fast paced = of course depending upon the reader. It’s a well written, fluent storyline that gives the reader vivid descriptions throughout every page. We see and feel all the characters thoughts and emotions like poetry.

I enjoy being able to read a story and feel as though I am inside the heads of the characters and am able to see everything as the story progresses.

The prologue had me gooey, a great ending, that I didn’t expect to find a sequel to, but I won’t be saying no... I’ll be eagerly hanging till June.

Thank you to Simon and Schuster for supplying me a copy of this book for  my honest review.

Her Wicked Angel
Felicity Heaton The King of Demons and the Devil’s right hand man, Asmodeus is a dark angel born of evil and created for destruction. When his master orders him to venture into the mortal world and retrieve a female for him, he seizes the chance to leave Hell for the first time, uncaring of what the Devil has planned for her… until he sets eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seen—a female who awakens new feelings within his black heart, unleashing passion so intense that it controls him and desire he cannot resist.

He will not let his wretched master have her. She will belong to him.

Liora is a witch with a bad reputation and an obsession with fighting demons. A mission gone wrong sees her sent to Paris to cool off, but when a dark and deadly warrior with a gaze of golden fire lands in her life, she ends up burning hotter than Hell for the wicked angel. Nothing will stand between her and the immense, forbidding male. Not her cousin. Not Asmodeus’s sworn enemy and twin, Apollyon. And certainly not the Devil.

Caught up in a tempest of danger and soul-searing passion, can they survive against the odds and seize their forever after?

Her Wicked Angel – Excerpt

Asmodeus rested his elbows on the black railing behind him, tilted his head right back and stared at the colourful cloud-strewn sky, trying to figure out why he had received a hard slap as payment for protecting her from the male.

 

He wanted to understand this world and the protocols, and somehow find a way to learn the right reactions to situations.

 

He didn’t want to scare her away.

 

His senses shifted entirely to her, locked and focused, feeling her close beside him, her power wrapping around him like warm arms. She had felt soft and light when he had carried her, warm against his flesh. She had stared at him until he had been intensely aware of her gaze on his face.

 

On his lips.

 

He had wanted to kiss her.

 

He still wanted to even though she was full of light and purity, and she was so warm and friendly, filled with beautiful concern about everyone. Even strangers.

 

Even him.

 

He had never witnessed such good in anyone before.

 

It left him feeling there really was no good in him and made him wish more than ever that there were.

 

He had told her that he was evil and she had seen the darkness in him, the violence he was quick to embrace and the cruelty, but she had remained with him, asking him to take her somewhere else, somewhere quieter.

 

He had expected her to leave and she had wanted him to stay.

 

He didn’t understand her at all.

 

Asmodeus raised his left hand above him, stretched his fingers out with his palm facing the sky, and stared at it.

 

He had told her that he had no friends and she had held this hand, squeezing it against the railing and showing him compassion. Why?

 

There was no room for friendship in his life. It was a weakness. Good was a weakness. Affection was a sin. Compassion and care were flaws.

 

So why did he want to feel these things?

 

He didn’t. He clenched his teeth and his fingernails transformed into sharp black claws and his fangs lengthened. He had no weakness. No soft emotions to leave him open to attack. No vulnerabilities.

 

He felt Liora’s gaze on him and ignored her, struggling with his feelings and trying to subdue them again. He was wasting time here. He should take her down to the Devil and be done with it. All he was doing was worsening the punishment his master would deal when he returned with her, and he would return with her. The Devil would see to that.

 

He was weak.

 

Vulnerable.

 

Unable to fight his master’s orders.

 

The Devil had absolute power over him and eventually he would tire of waiting and command him to return, and Asmodeus would not be strong enough to fight that order.

 

“How long have you had Romulus and Remus?” Liora’s tone was soft and soothing, calming the growing tempest within him until it subsided and he forgot his fear and lowered his gaze to her.

 

New fear grew in its place.

 

He had never talked about himself to anyone before. No one had ever wanted to know about him, but she was genuinely interested and for some reason he was finding it hard to deny her. It was strange to talk to her about his life. Strange and dangerous.

 

It left him feeling uncertain and more on edge than the males who loitered in the square and were potentially a threat to her.

 

If she knew the things he had done and the person he was, she wouldn’t want to know about him anymore.

 

“Several centuries.” He kept his response short and before she could ask another question, he changed tactics on her. “Have you been a witch all your life?”

 

This was new to him too. He had never wanted to know about anyone before, but he wanted to know all about her.

 

She nodded, her chestnut waves bouncing against her shoulders. “Ever since I was born. I’ve lived with a coven the whole time.”

 

The area began to empty, the single males dwindling in number and the couples moving away into darker corners. Asmodeus tried not to look at them as they embraced or kissed.

 

Liora ran her fingers along the metal railing and her arm brushed his, sending a thousand volts jolting up it and through his body. His gaze whipped around to her and found her looking out at the city, not at him. He could have sworn she had been watching him a second ago.

 

“Are you as powerful as Serenity… or less powerful?” He couldn’t resist turning her earlier question against her, or staring at her. The streetlights illuminated her face, softening her features further. Her beauty entranced him.

 

She smiled, rosy lips curling slowly into it, and a light entered her eyes, a twinkle that he knew he had put there. He had never made anyone smile like that before and he found he liked it and wanted to make it happen again. He just wasn’t sure how. He had zero experience of being amusing or entertaining, unless you were the Devil. He could entertain his master no end by torturing demons for his viewing pleasure.

 

Asmodeus didn’t think that would entertain or amuse Liora.

 

“More powerful,” she echoed his earlier words and he found himself smiling at her.

 

Liora turned to face him, her left arm remaining leaning against the black railing, and held her right hand out in front of her.

 

She snapped her fingers and a glowing black rose made of light appeared in her hand.

 

She held it out to him and when he went to take it, she evaded his hand and brushed the soft warm petals over his bare chest. His heart thudded hard and the smile that had been working its way onto his lips dropped away. The air around him sizzled and the awareness of Liora he felt at times came back full force, flowing through him like electricity, coursing through his blood and making him hot all over.

 

Liora looked up at him, the action of tilting her head back causing her lips to part invitingly.

 

Asmodeus swallowed and fought the dark instinct to claim those lips and devour them.

 

Unless she wanted him to kiss her.

 

Was that possible? He had studied the couples in the area, and how they courted with smiles and laughter, and light touches that seem designed to arouse and excite the interest of their partner.

 

He wanted to kiss her.

 

No good would come of it though. It would only increase his desire to keep her from the Devil and fight his master’s orders, and it would only cut him when he failed and delivered her to that wretched male.

 

The black rose disappeared and her hand settled against his bare chest. It was shaking. She was nervous too, afraid of whatever this was that zinged between them whenever they were close.

 

Asmodeus raised his hand to cover hers and froze when a shiver bolted down his spine, hot and fierce, and the ground trembled.

 

“Conceal yourself,” he barked and she stared blankly at him. He cursed and cast a veil over her, and pushed her behind him at the same time, shielding her with his body and his black wings in case his spell failed.

 

A bright orange spot formed on the pale stone slabs before him and then forked outwards into a glowing fault line. The ground trembled again and the fiery line cracked open, becoming a fissure. Steam and smoke rose from it and the mortals in the area screamed and ran.

 

Liora shook beneath his hand that clutched her wrist but he could feel her power rising, growing in the face of her fear.

 

A Hell’s angel burst from the earth and beat his crimson wings.

EXCERPT.

Midnight in LA was like rush hour in LA. It took them twice as long to get back to his place as it should have due to a couple of accidents off to the side of the road. Brake lights and headlights lit up the freeway like a lava flow. Hope had fallen asleep soon after Jamie put her in the car. He replayed everything that had happened since his photo shoot went bust with Brittany and his ire reignited. He didn’t know what he’d do if she tried to contact him again. She’s good, the psychotic bitch, always making it seem as though I’m the bad guy on the phone and she’s only trying to make things right again. At last, he pulled up the driveway and into the garage. He turned off the car and closed the garage door. Time to forget about her and concentrate on the extraordinary woman next to you, bud.
“Hope, babe, we’re here.” He leaned over and kissed her lightly on her cheek. She stirred, turned toward him, and smiled drowsily.
“Oh, good, ’cause I’m in desperate need of a comfy bed and you, mister. What are the chances of me getting those at this time of night?”
He put his forehead against hers and whispered, “I think your chances are pretty damned good. In fact, I’d say it is a sure bet. Place your chips, baby.”
Her throaty laugh sent waves of heat through his body straight to all points south. The nighttime air had caused her voice to deepen and rasp, and sound sexy as hell. “I’ll place my chips, honey. Just show me where.”
“Right here, sweetheart, right here.” He pointed to the bulge in his pants. They burst into laughter that sent tears streaming down their cheeks.
“Oh, my God! That’s the cheesiest line ever.” She shook her head.
“I know! I can’t believe I just said that!” He turned serious and looked at her sparkling eyes for a moment, needing to touch her. He reached out a tentative hand to gently tuck away a stray lock of hair behind her ear. “Let’s get out of here and into that comfy bed you requested.”
“Yes, let’s.” Her eyes spoke the rest of her desires.
***
He brought her straight to his bedroom on the second floor, a master suite, complete with loveseat and sofa by a fireplace at the far end. She marveled at the moonlight casting a soft glow through the amber stained glass windows, illuminating a king-sized bed loaded with pillows of all shapes and sizes. He pushed them aside and lowered her gently to the plush bed coverings, joining her just as she’d been anticipating since before dinner. They stayed locked in a desperate embrace for a while, before he released her. He rose above her like a canopy, his powerful arms and legs forming posts on either side of her. She couldn’t resist, wouldn’t resist the urge to release his hair from its bindings, and raked her fingers through to release their waves. His eyes, golden with desire, seemed to search for refuge in hers.
“I could lose myself in your eyes.”
She parted her lips but found no words to adequately respond. She batted her lashes and turned away, embarrassed and thrilled at the same time. He moved his head and captured her gaze once again. “No, don’t look away. Look at me. Let me find lost in you.” He’d spoken so softly, so openly and raw. She smiled gently at his play on words, loving the intimacy, the perfection, of the moment.
She raised herself up to but a hair’s breadth away from his face. “Kiss me, Jamie, and we’ll find lost together.”
