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.
"Mine (Real, #2)" Reviews
Its always sad when we come across a book that we absolutely LOVE and count the months, weeks and days for the sequel..
Then when we actually do get the book and all revved up to see what's in store, it turns out to be the biggest load of crap!!!
Excuse my use of the word crap but nothing and I mean nothing can possibly explain my irritation while reading this.
Remy is a God, a beast of a man. A champion fighter and God I love him. Possible thee only reason I continued reading.
To elaborate, the cause of my irritation was Brooke.
My thoughts about her-
For the love of God this woman was professing her love for him on EVERY SINGLE PAGE and nearly EVERY SINGLE line!
I love him, I need him, his Mine.... The word mine was probably used over 200 times , I kid you not,
Turn the page..
Turn the page...
Oh I want him so bad
Oh I need him so bad
On I'm so wet....
She was so wet all the time I was starting to wonder if she had a tube of lubbe attached to her Vijayjay!!!!!!
I honestly feel the author used soooo many of the same lines to fill pages.
So all in all this book is a huge let down.
Good luck to all who invests time reading it. Hope you like it better than I did!
I am so excited that Brooke and Remy are back in their readers hands! I have a very soft spot for MINE. I think some books are very easy to write, and some are very hard. MINE was easy to write, but hard to let go of, because it's the near-end of Brooke and Remy's story for me, and it was a ride which I just loved taking.
Where did Brooke and Remington go after Real finished? I just had to find out.
My goal writing MINE was not recreating REAL, for REAL is already written. My goal was going deeper, pulling out their imperfections and their demons and have them prove to me that even then, good or bad, they were in it for each other. In MINE I wanted Brooke to prove to me, through all her challenges, that she was capable of standing by Remy, even when she had her own little demons to battle. I wanted to watch her grow, mature, for her man. For HIM.
And Remy, well, we all know what he'd do for her. He has his demons, and I wanted to know more about them, and I wanted to see him cope being with or without her. I love the fact that they are both so flawed, so passionate about the other, he's a lion and she's his little firecracker. I love how Brooke's feistiness brings out the alpha in him, how I could feel their love on every page, animal, raw, and just like Mr. Tate ordered.
Brooke and Remy have a total of three stories; REAL, MINE and REMY, and to me, each of them represent a stage in a relationship. Real is the lust, the falling in love, the mystery and excitement. Mine is when it gets real. When you see your other half is not perfect, but you love them anyway. Mine is the challenges, the growth, the devotion and the proof. And finally, Remy. From his POV, Remy is a little bit of present, of Real, and of Mine, and it rounds up their story in a way that left me extremely happy.
I am beyond grateful for the book love we've received! For you taking the time to read, and write or leave your notes and reviews,it is all very appreciated.
Whether Mine is for you or not, I give them to you as I saw them, lived them, and loved them, and I hope that you can open your heart like I did and enjoy the ride which made me smile, laugh, happy, sad, broken, and whole.
All my love.

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.

"The series will have 5 total! Brooke and Remy get three. REAL, then the sequel, MINE, and then REMY (Real in Rem's POV). Then Melanie gets a story and we see more of Rem and Brooke through her . . . and then we get a last book. Surprise. Haha!! "
ABSOLUTELY FREAKING OUT HERE.....
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!
