With this book I have had to sleep on it, it rendered me speechless. Even now after 10 hours have passed I'm numb.
The excerpt :
A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
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.
Had me hooked from that. So our story begins with Brooke and her friend Melanie going to watch an underground boxing match. When they are at the ringside and they announce Remington Riptide Tate.
"A shiver runs along my spine as the crowd goes crazy over the name alone"
This is even before Brooke has seen Remington. When Melanie dares Brooke to "look at him and tell me you wouldn't do anything for that man" When Brooke first sees Remington's face
"his face is suddenly before me, illuminated by the lights, and I just stare like an idiot from my place. My God" There are so many quotes I could use. when Melanie shouts how hot Remy is he turns and winks at Brooke. When Remy takes on Hammer in his first round he has Brooke melting in his seat. Then when he wins that round and turns and stares straight at Brooke she feels taken right there. As Remy takes on his second fighter Brooke stands to go to the toilet Remy k'os the man quickly and jumps out the ring and runs after Brooke. This is the start to their relationship, and omg is all I can say.
I loved this whole book, everything about it, the story, the character's, the pace, the setting. It drew me in like an addict and had me hook, line and sinker. There is so much I can say about the story to give you an insight but I wont because you need to read it with a fresh mind with no spoilers.
This is an amazing read, its made me numb and fried from reading it. My favourite quote from the book that can explain how I felt when I had read it is:
" Something rushes through me as if this is the first sip of water I've had in weeks, and every pore in me is dehydrated"
This book has plenty of move moments in it and I would give it 5/5 for movie moments( which is for me when your watching a film and it gets to the exciting part that grips you and you either have to go for a walk around the block or leave the room then come back, when I read a really good book and I get like this, for me the author has hit everything right about the story)
The only advice I will give about this book is this
1) Be prepared to forego all normal duties.
2) Make sure you have blinkers and earbuds, so cant see or hear anyone.
3) Preferably lock yourself in a room which has a lock.
4) You need a huge DO NOT DISTURB sign.
To the author Katy Evans, thank you for an amazing read I can't wait for Mine(Raw & Ripped#2)

Was the male lead raised by wolves? That is the only way I can
Remy is grunting and sniffing the whole time. Also, this book does a great job making people with bipolar look like social outcasts. Just a hot mess.

Is that all writers can write about is SEX. It's really hard to find good book any more. I like espionage, murder mysteries, political thrillers. Yes I like a little sex in my stories, but any more its overkill.

This book was just gosh darn awful, I have no idea why the heck everyone seemed to like this crap. I seriously felt my brain deteriorate from reading this. You all are seriously disturbed if you find a man that speaks like a cavemen, grunts constantly, and is mentaly crazy, hot. Yuck.
