Review ~ Real (Real #1) by Katy Evans

Real (Real, #1)Paperback purchased by myself

Release Date: April 2013

A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…

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.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?

My Opinion

This was an okay read, but I can't help but feel disappointed. I was expecting so much more from this book because of the MMA aspects, and it just didn't deliver in my eyes. There were parts that I really enjoyed, and things did pick up towards the end, yet it wasn't enough to win me over as they were few and far between.

The main reason I can only rate this book as okay, is because the pace was so slow. The start didn't engage me at all and I found myself skimming by the time I hit page 60. I don't know what it was about this book, but the writing style just didn't connect with me. I struggled to form any kind of relationship with the characters, which led to me not really caring what happened to them in the end. Like I said earlier, there were parts that were significantly better and had me reading every word. It was mostly when the couple were together and there was a lot of speech. Outside of that though, I felt it only had a very loose story and rather develop the tension, everything seemed too easy and set in a repetitive cycle of scenes.

I didn't think I'd be writing this about Real, but it was only an okay read for me and I don't think it's done enough to convince me to read on.
