“I will do anything to make her MINE.” —Remington Tate 

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 “Remy” 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, Brooke is torn away from the ringside. Now with distance and darkness between them, the only thing left is to fight for the love of the man she calls MINE.

thoughts on mine

What I Liked

Even though I was sad to see their story end, I was happy with Remy and Brooke's ending.  It may not be the ending that people are expecting but brings everyone and everything together and Remy's happy so that's all that I really worried over anyway.

The intensity that was always present in Real is still there as well.  From the Underground to the hotel room the tension and frustration that Katy Evans writes so well is fully loaded and palpable.  Whether they are alone or surrounded by their friends, Remy and Brooke are always focused on each other and what the other is doing.

What I Loved

I absolutely loved everything about Remy in this book.  In Real I was frustrated at times by his not wanting to speak and only communicate through songs at most times but there was none of that in this Remy.  Oh there's still the sharing of the songs because it's a thing for them but he also opens himself up and shows Brooke that she's it for him.

What I Didn't Like

Brooke's jealously and insecurities got to me at times.  Yes, there are women literally throwing themselves at Remy at times but he's never given her a reason on to doubt him.  Remy is more show than tell to me but the amount of times that Brooke wanted to be told was enough that I kind of wanted to smack her in the head.  Her insecurities were kind of her own fault and while insecurities don't have to make sense she needed pull back on the tantrums.

If you only take one thing from this review let it be this- Mine is everything we wanted it to be for Brooke and Remy and then some.  Katy Evans puts you on a rollercoaster of emotions and many hold-your-breath moments before she brings Brooke and Remy's story to an end that makes you sigh.
