Review - Real (Real, Raw & Ripped, #1) by Katy Evans

Blurb from Goodreads:
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?

My Review:

2.5/5 stars

Brooke Dumas is a young woman with a broken dream.
Remington 'Riptide' Tate is a boxer with a medical condition.
As soon as the two see each other their chemistry is undeniable.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I know lots of people love Real and I was really excited to start reading it. I liked the medical condition aspect as it gave the story an interesting edge. Brooke was an okay protagonist. The plot was average but not particularly gripping. I didn't like how possessive Remy was and how at one point he told Brooke he was going to break her into submission.

Overall slightly disappointing but with an interesting edge.
