Remy

Underground fighter Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. At times his actions and moods are carefully measured, and at others, they spin out of control.

Through it all, there’s been one constant: wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas. This is his story; from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he’s ever had to fight for.

Book Dame’s Rating 5 stars

I will forever hold a place in my heart, and in my soul for this series. I fell in love with them in Real, became consumed with their life in Mine and soothed with Remington’s words in Remy. Katy Evans words are knitted together so amazing, their world comes to life before your eyes. I would of loved to read every single thing all over again in Remy’s voice, so with that in mind. I was sad at how short and fast paced this book is. That being said, it was all fresh and seamlessly told. I wasn’t lost or confused by any jumps in times. A beautiful look back at Remington falling in love, and finding his REAL!

So I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and interview Christina and Lauren, Authors of Beautiful Bastard. Originally I had planned to type everything up, but this interview was so much fun… I think it’s better to actually listen.

Those ladies are sweet, they have a really great vibe AND Christina promised to teach me a few tricks with a curling iron…

I didn’t forget about that Christina 🙂

Lauren (on the left) and Christina (on the right) have been writing all kinds of stories together since 2009. This is not the first erotic romance they’ve ever written . . . but it is the first one under this name. Separated by the pesky state of Nevada, these co-author besties talk several times a day, agree that Ruby Pumps is the best nail polish color ever, and would, if given the choice, spend all day staring at the ocean from the San Clemente pier.

He was taking the long road. She was taking the road to nowhere. It just so happened that they led to the same place…

When everything falls apart, love remains . . .

THE EDGE OF ALWAYS

Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged—and a wedding isn’t the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can’t wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew – a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to—until tragedy blindsides them.

Andrew doesn’t understand how this could happen to them. He’s trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won’t do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride

Book Dame’s Rating 4 stars

I loved the first book, it was unique and a rare surprise. That book left me emotional, and overwhelmed. Edge of Never, was beautifully written and perfectly paced. The flow, and story was one that really touched me. I was really scared and shocked, when a book two was announced. I really liked Cam and Andrew, so I understood wanting more. But I felt the story was told so perfectly, that I didn’t feel a need for it. That being said, I did enjoy it. Maybe not as much as the first but, it was nice to get more of them. The writing was good, and the story never seem to drag or been drawn out. I really like the chemistry between Andrew and Camryn, I like how the adventures were written, and how nothing seemed cookie cutter. The two of them always stay in who they were. I did feel the ending was a little to tied up, I like when the reader can still play with them in their own imagination. Always was a nice read.

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.

We at Confessions of a Book Heaux  LOVE this book!  So Dame and I are reviewing it!

Feisty’s Review – 5+++++ Stars!

First of all, if you haven’t read REAL then you need to read that first.  MINE is a continuation of Remington and Brooke’s beautiful love story.  That being said, I can’t think of very many books that I have loved as much as this one.  I absolutely LOVED this book!  Not only do I think Katy Evans is a wonderful person (I’ve been lucky enough to chat with her regularly) but this story touched my heart in a big way.  This installment follows Remy and Brooke after the I love you’s and the initial lust turning into love.  It’s their story of how they survive so many obstacles in their way, his being Bipolar being one of them. Their love for one another is heavy and their passion for each other is palpable.  They are larger than life and jump off the page!

I’m in love, and I will be forever changed by this love, by this man.  I used to dream of medals and championships, but now I dream solely of a blue-eyed fighter who one day changed my life, when he put his lips on mine… “- Brooke

They need each other so much in this book.  They love each other fiercely and will do anything to protect the other.  Each of them goes through situations where they really need the other to be strong to get through to the other side.  Scorpion is back in full force and he’s just awful.  I love how they love each other.  They are hot together, sweet together, funny together.  We get to see more sides to Remy than we saw in REAL.  He’s playful and funny, sweet and still sexy as hell!!

“And now I don’t know what I want to kiss most, you or your dimples?” – Brooke

“Me. Always me first.  Then the rest of me.” – Remy

The love scenes are hot and you can feel the sexual tension.  He truly only has eyes for her.

“It never ceases to amaze me how much that man likes to SHOW THE F*&^ OFF WHEN YOU WATCH HIM!”  – Pete

And that brings me to the supporting cast.  They are AWESOME!!  I love Pete and Riley, Melanie, Coach and Diane.  They are all fantastic!  They are loyal and honest, funny and really protective of Remy and Brooke.  These are people we would all be lucky to know and have in our lives.  The scenes with Melanie and Brooke are great!  She’s such a fantastic best friend.  And Pete and Riley, I love them!!  The Men In Black – so cute!  Ok, so I’ll wrap this up so Dame can jump in.  You have to read this book, this series, anything by this author!  REMY is out next, November 26th to be exact.  It’s REAL and MINE from Remy’s POV with the present thrown in.  CANNOT WAIT FOR THAT!!  He’s so sexy and mysterious.  I can’t wait to read what he was thinking through all of this.  MINE is an emotional read, a sweet read, a sexy read, a fun read, a WTH read, everything you want in a wonderful, sigh worthy romance!  Thank you Katy for taking me on this lovely journey!

“I adore you with every breath I take – in every ounce of me, I adore you.” Remy  *sigh*

“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” – Remy

Book Dame Rating 5+++ Stars ( 100 wouldn’t be enough)

First, I love this series!! I love love Real! Love Remy, Love Brooke and I adore Katy Evans! She has to be one of the nicest and sweetest Authors, I’ve talked with!  I could hardly stand to wait for this book. I kept myself busy by reading Real every so often. Then about a week, before it came out, I got nervous. What if it wasn’t as good, what if its not how I need it to be! Well, really all of that was silly, because Katy is amazing! This story had me on the edge of my seat. I was so wrapped up in their world. It takes a great writer, to make me finish a book and automatically just turn straight to beginning, once I hit that last page! It’s that good! I laughed, I screamed, I even had to walk away, because I was going to lose my mind. I second, everything above from Feisty .  It’s A MUST READ!!   I really believe this series could make anyone, LOVE to read. It’s a wonderful story, told in an amazing voice. I really can’t say enough about it!

Okay, I’ll say a little more about it. You will need to read Real, first. It’s absolutely, no chore. It’s a great book, no cliffhanger,but you will need to see where it all started, and be as obsessed as the rest of us.  Mine picks up, where we left Brooke and Remy, preparing for the next season of fighting. Katy takes us along the road, watching their love grow and them take on anything in their way. She had me enthralled, with the whole scene, I saw the ring. Heard the screams for Riptide. This story will pull you in and shut out the rest of the world. I can’t even tell you what went on in my house for those two days, did my kids eat? Was their homework finished? Who knows, but I can tell you when I laughed, while I read Mine. Or When I put the book down pacing and scared to continue. I never felt like I knew what was coming in every chapter. No, every page was a new adventure. One I devoured. Thrilled to be in their world again. Outstanding book, one I will read over and over! I recommend, that everyone reads it! Truly my hat is off to Katy Evans, she sets the bar pretty high! Love Mine, go read it!! You’ll love it, too!

This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone. 

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.

Book Dames Rating 5+ Stars

I loved it, all of it!! Great story, another amazing read from Colleen Hoover! Not sure how she does it but, I laugh, I cry, I smile and got goose bumps from ever book I read of hers. Amazing story teller, it dances across my eyes, I get taken away into their world. I can’t say enough great things. She deliveries a wonderful story, perfect for Daniel and Six!! I was also thrilled to get a bit more of Holder, and see it Daniel world. Would love nothing more then to have 10 more chapters but it kind of ends perfectly. I would of gladly paid for this book, but was delighted it was free. Free and still able to have it on my kindle to reread whenever I have the desire,not search a web page for it!! A big thank you to Colleen for writing and giving it away!!! Another reason to love her.

Her first year away is turning out to be nearly perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.

Eighteen-year-old Harper has grown up under the thumb of her career marine father. Ready to live life her own way and to experience things she’s only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father’s unit, she’s on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family, and emotions. She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with both her new boyfriend, Brandon, and her roommate’s brother, Chase. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both men adore Harper and would do anything for her, including taking a step back if it would mean she’d be happy.

Book Dame’s Rating 4 Stars

So I’m not a big fan of love triangles, especially when both choices are good. I end up having a terrible time liking the females leading character in the triangles. I just don’t get how it all works out, I mean don’t you end up, either losing them both or realize the one you really want too late. I have a hard time with drawing things out and string along someone. The one thing that change all that, while read this book was Brandon. Brandon was almost to good to be true, he was so wonderful. It pushed me back into Harper’s corner. I really wish we got more Chase and more with sir at the end. This has all the elements for an emotional heartbreaking read, and I definitely see how you could be curled up in a ball sobbing. I think for me it came out of nowhere, and I was more shocked then sad. I almost didn’t believe it, but a great read. That had me flipping the page to see what was next.
