Review of Mine (and a HUGE giveaway)

12 Nov 2013

Mine by Katy Evans

“I will do anything to make her MINE.” —Remington Tate

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 “Remy” 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, Brooke is torn away from the ringside. Now with distance and darkness between them, the only thing left is to fight for the love of the man she calls MINE.
This review is for book 2 in a series. To see what I thought of book 1 go here –

Wow! Katy Evans didn't let the sexual tension between Brooke and Remy decrease in this book! Their chemistry smoulders and sizzles off the page. I think all readers will agree that Remy is the hottest thing out there.

Sometimes when you have books as amazing as REAL the sequel can seem stale, the spark between the characters dead. This was not the case with MINE! Katy Evans has created a book with the perfect mix of heart wrenching emotion and raw, primal sexuality.

Remy and Brooke have an obsessive all-consuming type of love that not every reader will understand. I loved it as it made their relationship feel so much more real to me and it explains why they both act the way they do.

Brooke is slightly insecure at the start of the book and though I usually hate “weak” characters, in this case it felt justified and I loved seeing Brooke’s more vulnerable side. She loves Remy but is struggling to come to terms with some of the things that happened when she left, and worse that it was her actions that ultimately started it. In her situation I would act the same way, and hell who wouldn’t act possessive over a man as sexy as Remy?

I loved that later in the book Brooke’s tough and feisty side came out more showing that she was more than strong enough to handle Remy. We also got to see some of Remy’s softer, quieter and more tender side in this book though there was still plenty of his commanding, powerful sexiness.

Remy has this raw, primal and animalistic nature that you don’t see very often in contemporary novels and instead usually only in shifter romance novels (imagine how amazing a PNR novel written by Katy would be!!!) I loved this unique element as well as his bi-polar disorder as it made him so much more than just your usual cookie-cutter hero.

Remy is the perfect example of why women want to read books with alpha heroes; you don’t get any hotter and more panty-dropping than Remy!

The emotional intensity is ramped up a little for this sequel as there several tense, emotional moments and it even gets a little heart breaking towards the end. Luckily there is also lots of steamy scenes to help keep the balance ;)

Also helping make this book amazing is Katy Evans’ incredibly beautiful writing. Remy and Brooke’s story wouldn’t be half as good without Katy’s talent for capturing their emotions and intensity onto the page. Every sentence is just so quotable!

“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.”

"I've been through hell, and I'm back in heaven, and suddenly I know that's the way my life will be: after the dark, I will always, always find my light--which is him."

MINE is a great read with characters that will grab at your heart and refuse to let go. I can’t wait to read Remy which will tie up the rest of Remy and Brooke’s story. Best of all, it is from Remy’s pov! I HIGHLY recommend this book and series. Let Katy Evans show you what a real sexy and well written romance looks like.
