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?

Wow! I was expecting another good girl falls for the bad boy romance, Real is so much more. Remington Tate may be an amazingly sexy underground fighter, but his heart is stronger than anything else. The building sexual tension and attraction between Remy and Brooke sizzles. I thought my e-reader would overheat! Neither Brooke or Remy know how to open themselves up to the dangers of love, but when they finally do it is explosive.
“Why won’t you take me, Remington?”
He groans and pulls me closer. “Because I want you too much.”
The only think keeping this from being a 5 hearts for me, is the large amount of music references. They flow and fit perfect with the story, but for myself, I couldn’t put the book down long enough to listen to an unfamiliar song. Although, I did go back and listen to them and it does make the scenes even more intense. Maybe, that’s a good thing after all—instant re-read!
