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.


Whoa. There's something to be said about great sequels and Mine is definitely one of them. If you've already read Real, then you know how crazy exciting Brooke and Remy's life is but what till you get ahold of Mine, because as far as sequels go, this one is pretty great!

Right from the very beginning of the book, you can already feel the tension between the characters (the thing Brooke did in Real is still very much an open wound) and everyone is affected by it. Especially Brooke. She was still obviously recovering from what happened and is even more insecure about herself because of what happened with Remy. Honestly, I didn't think she'd be able to cope with the pressure and expectations of being with him but she did, and I am amazed. Brooke has definitely grown from the naive and innocent physical therapist to a strong, no-nonsense but playful woman. I was happy to see her grow into a great character and that made reading this book all the more exciting because nobody wants a boring protag, and Brooke is far from boring.

Oh, Remy, Remy, Remy. When will I ever be immune to your charms (I hope never) because you always manage to continuously amaze me. Which is completely true. While Brooke may have been the protag, I have always thought that Remy was the star of this series. Maybe it's because of his "problem" or because he's Brooke's love but there's just something about Remy that screams "Look at me!". And not in a bad way. I love that even though he's this cocky badass fighter, he still has a sensitive and sweet side that shows whenever he's with Brooke. And oh. My. Golly. Whenever he gets all protective and brings out the full force of Remy, I die just a little bit. While Remy still has his "problem" I'm glad he has people to take care of him while he goes and takes care of Brooke. Haha! I need my own Remy...

But Mine isn't all about romance and steamy, steamy scenes. There's A LOT of crazy stuff that happens in this book and Katy Evans has definitely brought out all her guns. There were literally times when I just wanted to fling my phone across the room because I was getting so angsty that I didn't want to read anymore. Mine almost killed me, seriously. Seriously.

I suggest that you be prepared for anything when you're reading this book. Mine is exactly what a person looks for in a sequel: exciting, exhilarating, hot and most of all, engaging. Katy Evans really upped the stakes with this one and knowing her and her books, you should expect that Mine will be one hell of a ride. Yeehaw!
