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.

HOT. SEXY. POWERFUL. PAINFUL. REAL. The scorching international bestseller that strips away everything you’ve ever believed about passion . . . .

Remington Tate has a bad-boy rep in and out of the ring, a granite-hard body, and a raw, animal power that sends his female fans into a frenzy. But from the moment their eyes lock, the only woman he wants is Brooke Dumas. His desire is pure, all-consuming, and REAL.

Hired to keep his perfect body working like a machine, Brooke finally has the lucrative sports therapy job she’s been dreaming of. But as she tours the dangerous underground fighting circuit with Remy and his team, Brooke’s own body becomes alive with the most primal of hungers. If what happens between Brooke and Remy is ever as light as a flirtation, it quickly becomes an erotic obsession for them both, and promises so much more.

But their white-hot lust has a dark side—and when Remy’s deepest secret comes to light and Brooke’s familial duties demand action, will the pair be able to hang on, or will everything that once seemed so real suddenly fade away like an illusion?
Katy Evans is the author of several New York Times and U.S.A Today best sellers. Her first best seller, Real, is a Romance novel that chronicles the relationship between Remington Tate, an underground boxing champion and Brooke Dumas, a sports rehab therapist. 'Real' was nominated as a Goodreads finalist for Best Romance Novel of 2013....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Sure About This I was uncomfortable about the characters in this book. It felt like the author was trying to represent a certain type of character and if so, didn't do a great job of it. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flawed characters that stay flawed = refreshing I enjoyed this read. It was almost entirely narrative (vs dialogue). The author build a lot of tension, which frankly was almost better than the romance actually coming to fruition. I was thoroughly entertained. The book was steamy (but not too graphic), and it was "real" in the sense that the characters are flawed, but they don't magically fix one another. I'm on to book #2 and looking ahead to #3 which I understand to be a re-telling of the story from his (Remy's) perspective - which I always enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EPIC!! This is the most intense, beautiful, breathtaking and PERFECT love story EVER written! It's a story of mythic proportions... I can't even begin to tell you all the reasons why you should read it. But words are honestly so poor compared to the real thing.. I guess that only if you experience it yourself, you'll be able to feel what I felt while reading about the love of Remington and Brooke... I even felt the butterflies they were feeling...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay read This is an okay read but hard to get beyond the use of the same words over and over again. I am still on the fence as to whether I will read the sequel or Remy's POV book.
