Katy Evans-Remy (Real #3)

Adult Romance 18+

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 stars}
It's always a risk for an author to rewrite a book from another's POV. We all want it, we've all read books where we just know it would be wonderful to read it from the other POV. But pulling that off without making it seem like you just read the same book again without getting bored? Well, I think Katy Evans pulled it off.

Remy was such a silent character in the first 2 books, that having a book told from inside his head was a treat. Even though we all know what happened along the way, to see it through his eyes was a whole new story. We skip along learning what goes through his mind when he is normal (we skip the parts when he goes black and isn't aware of what's happening). And we see him from the inside out. It was great, and as an added bonus we get to read about their wedding. Adding a little bit of "new" mixed in with the past made this book even better.  We don't rehash each an every incident from the first 2 books, just the high (or low) points that are important to his storyline. I really enjoyed Remy, he is such a tormented character, that you just want to wrap him up and protect him. But that's his job, his sole purpose in life now is to protect and treasure Brooke and Racer. Great series, emotional, captivating, endearing. Love it. Great job Miss Evans!
