Review: REMY (Real #3) by Katy Evans

REMY by Katy Evans
REMY (Real #3) by Katy Evans

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.

4.5 out of 5 stars

I knew once I started this book I wouldn’t be able to put it down and that’s exactly what happened. Loved it!

REMY was an intense, emotional story and I felt like I was falling in love with him all over again. I understood him even more since everything was from his point of view. That being said, Remy is a man of few words so a part of me excepted his inner dialoged to be a bit more in depth. His devotion and love for Brooke is undeniable, they’re great together and have off the charts chemistry. He and Brooke share some hot scenes and you could seriously feel a build up of sexual tension from Remy.

Even though scenes from REAL and MINE are revisited, I thought the story seemed fresh and not rehashed. The final scenes from the first two books from his POV had me on the edge of my seat, knowing his thoughts made everything more intense and put things in a whole different perspective. I was very heart-in-throat-can’t-read-fast-enough. The majority of this story covers REAL, but I would have liked a bit more from MINE. I wanted to know more about Remy when he and Brooke were apart. I also would have loved to know Remy’s perspective of Brooke and Melanie dressed up at a fight, that would have been awesome from his POV (I thought it was a seriously funny scene!). That might be the selfish part of me though because I can’t seem to get enough.

Knowing Remy’s feelings and emotions made everything so much more heart felt. I swear my own emotions doubled. Watching him fight to stay blue and seeing him change to black was really intense. It’s like you could feel the change in his thoughts within the writing because of the change in him. 
This story goes back and forth between present and past, something I really enjoyed. I loved the present day story – I was all, happy happy joy joy! There was a bit at the end that’s from Brooke’s POV and I thought that was a nice addition as well. I also loved Brooke’s gift to Remy. Perfect!

I thought this was a fast paced story, full of emotion, intensity, and sexual chemistry. Even though the speaking dialogue was the same, I found myself just as invested. This book made me love the first two books even more. Remy fought for what he wanted, so much more than I ever could have imagined. Excellent story! I loved it! Loved Remy! I will forever be a fan of author Katy Evans. :-)
