He's mine, and I'm his. Our love is all-consuming, powerful,
imperfect, and real...
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 "Riptide" 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, she is torn away from his side. Now with distance and darkness between them, the only thing left is to fight for the love of the man she calls MINE.

4.5 Oh My Remy Stars
I’m the realest fucking thing you’re ever going to have
If you are looking for an alpha, over-loaded, gripping, pull-your-hair-out, tension, over-maxed read, well Mine is for you.
Let’s just get all the ass kissing out of the way first… Katy Evan, damn. Katy writes in a way it seems like poetry. Most of my book is highlighted, in fact, I had to reframe from highlighting because most of the pages were yellow!
Oh how I love Remy. I loved Real and I loved Remy. He’s the kind of guy you just want to rip your clothes off for and let him have his way with you. When I first picked up Mine, I kind of thought it was going to be more Brooke’s story (hence the cover), but it really isn’t. Mine is still the continued story of Remy and Brooke.
So… what can we expect?
Lots of steam… sex... including, petting, licking, biting, nipping, sucking, smelling… you got that?
Crazy damaged, alpha, tatted, made-of-steel boxer
Somewhat highly emotional and crazy Heroine (but totally justified).
Your heart will be beating A MILLION MILES a minute from start to finish.
Mine was a difficult read for me. There are few things that make it hard for me to read books and Mine touched on of those issues. Also, I know I’m crazy, I’m not a fan of angst and although Mine wasn’t “angsty” there were a lot of moments where I just had no idea what was going to happen and it was over whelming… in a good and bad way. Good because it makes the writing great, bad, b/c I could have had a heart attack!
You’re everything I never knew I wanted.
I adore you with every breath I take – in every ounce of me, I adore you
I am always cautious in reading sequels, because I love the characters so much, I really don’t want them to struggle anymore, BUT Katy did well. Although there were some slow moments, overall MINE was a fast face read (if that makes sense). I really enjoyed Remy and Brooke’s dynamics.
I love damaged Remy, he’s so real, raw and gritty. I also loved how Katy described him as a lion and a tree, these sort of descriptive words, really put Katy, as an author, to a whole new level (I know, I said I wouldn’t ass kiss anymore, but I can’t help it, she’s good!).
Brooke is a mess, but in a justified good way. You understand her struggles and you sympathized, she’s still trying to get over pass and present issues. I wouldn’t say most of the tension is between Remy and Brooke, there are a few external forces that come to play. Which I loved! I love it when it’s the couple against the world kind of read.
You are going to love me until I die. I’m going to make you love me even if it hurts, and when it hurts, I’m going to make it better, Brooke
Ripped, raw and so real. He’s all mine – or at least, that’s all I want in the world. For him to be mine.
My final point to cross is that, if you are a Real fan, you will love Mine, it’s different, but still raw, real and sexy as ever.

You know what? I really enjoyed MINE so it gets 4.5 SEXY STARS from me :)
I don't remember much from the last book (I know, old age sucks!) other than it left me sexually frustrated, Remy was hot and, as much as I wanted to hate Brooke, she only managed to fuck up towards the very end.
Going into this sequel I was fully prepared to unleash my hatred on her as I did after the stunt she pulled at the end of REAL but, other than her little meltdown in the very beginning (around 11% into the book), I didn't mind her character at all. I KNOW, RIGHT??? I seem to be in a minority on this one but it is what it is.
I think part of the reason I enjoyed this story so much is because it resonated with me on so many levels. I hated when they had to be apart. I loved that she got [spoilers removed] I loved that he was so possessive of her. I loved all the touching and kissing and petting and sniffing and licking ... if you read the book, you know what I mean.
This book certainly had no shortage of this
and, of course, lots of this
and how sweet was Remy [spoilers removed] ...
All in all, I guess I really wanted to see these two get their HEA ...
*** Thank you for another fun BR, my beautiful bunch of GR friends! xo
Oh dear..where to begin with this one? I wanted to love it, I truly did..and I was so looking forward to this second book. Unfortunatly, this book just really did rub me the wrong way. There were some good parts to it, one of them being my fierce and studly Remy! ( I mean, it is hard NOT to fall in lust for him! )The whole book though, just felt like the author took the popular phrases from the first book; and over used them in this one. It almost made me feel uncomfortable while reading it, because these phrases were repeated so much. I am sad to say that for a majority of the book, I actually began to skim. Even with my skimming, I didn't miss alot, because there was just so much of the same things being said and done. There is only so much of the couple licking and smelling each other that I can take before it becomes extremely annoying. I began to cringe each time it was mentioned that Remy licked behind Brookes ear, or every time the couple smelled one another in the crook of their necks. It just felt like a lot of "filler" instead of a story full of substance.
I feel strongly that the first book, Real; should have been a stand alone book with a kick ass epilogue. I truly loved that book, it was intense and electric when Remy and Brooke first laid eyes on one another. The sex was so wonderfully primal, and just plain HAWT!! For some reason, it just didn't work this second time around. I think because it got old very fast. I would have loved some fresh material to get excited over.
There were parts of the story that I did enjoy. Mostly, when anything new happened. In those cases, I became involved and eager. I feel that I gave this installment a fair chance. I really wanted to love it. "Real" will still always be a book that I will have fond memories of; but I don't even think that I could re-read it now because everything just became "Blah" and I now need to move on from the experience.
Jesus. I have no words in my vocabulary that can come close to this book. Nothing that can adequately describe what my heart, soul and body feel. Five stars is a pathetic rating for this. It deserves infinite stars because it's perfect. And you know what? How hard is it to put out a book that's blindingly perfect? Almost impossible. Let me tell you that Katy drew every word she put down from somewhere deep in her soul. Every word slammed me in the gut. I can't wait to post my review. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!

Sexy "Riptide" Tate!
