There's been a lot of hype surrounding Real and I wanted to wait a while before reading the book to make sure I ignored the hype and developed my own opinion.

Real is one hell of an emotional story; I both loved and hated it. I found myself struggling to get through certain sections. The two MC's Brooke and Remy 'Riptide' are both intense and extremely complicated. Theirs is the all encompassing, ground-breaking, obsessive type of relationship which can either be something beautiful or implode into something horrific.

I'm a big fan of Beautiful Disaster and Real is in a similar ballpark. Like Travis, Remy is a strong, dominate, Alpha-male, who once he finds something he wants goes all out to possess it. From the first second Remy sees Brooke he wants her and comes up with a complicated way to have her.

Remy has a large amount of baggage (his parents are hideous), but when I discovered the reasons behind most of his actions I could totally understand why he behaved in certain ways. He's never had anything 'real' or anybody who see's past the fame, money, fights etc to simply see him... until Brooke.

I liked Brooke (far more than Abby from Beautiful Disaster) and could understand why she's so guarded. A lot of Remy's actions are bizarre and extremely controlling; I'd personally have considered running on several occasions. Sometimes I really wanted her to realise what she was doing to Remy. Towards the end of the book, I was torn between wanting to salute her courage and smacking her for doing the one thing Remy was afraid of.

The sexual tension is extreme, I found myself really wanting them to channel 'Nike' and just do it! When they finally er... get together, it's all kinds of smexy.

5 big fat twinkly amazing hot REMINGTON TATE RIPTIDEEEEEEEEEEEEE shamazeballs stars.
This book is seriously amazing, one of my all time favourites and one that I will read again and again and again..chemistry...more like nuclear reaction...absolutely LOVED IT...and Remington Tate is mine (just saying!!) and I'll fight you all to the death!! pmsl

Review: What can I say....amazing for a debut book, totally got me hook line and sinker, pulled me in, put me through the emotional wringer and spat me out at the end..I was a mess, red puffy eyes, heart thumping, I looked like my best friend had died and it some ways it had as I didn't want the book to end and when I saw those words THE END I was bereft...I need book 2 NOW!! I need more Remy, purleasssssse.

Brooke dreamt of being an Olympic athlete she was certainly good enough and was heading in the right direction when it all went wrong, she was seriously injured tearing her anterior cruciate ligament, she went through rehab but returned too soon and tore the ATL again thus ending her dreams and career, she throws herself into uni and decides to become a sports therapist she has just graduated and finished her internship when this book begins. Melanie her best friend takes her out one night to an underground fight, she looks and feels out of place and wants to leave. Melanie tells her that she has to stay for the main event and that is one Remington RIPTIDE Tate... All the girls have their eyes on him but Remy only has eyes for one and that is Brooke...she turns to leave unable to take the screaming girls and the fighting..when Remy knocks the guy out for the count and chases after her...holy smoking hotness...pheww[...] It is a case of instalust which most find difficult to believe but I did actually believe this..

Ok, well, I have to say that it's good because I genuinely couldn't stop. I found the writing addictive and their romance was like a drug to me. I can't rate it too highly though because part of my reading non-stop was doing an awful lot of skimming. There was much more swooning than I could take. It got a bit boring for me to be honest, all that sexual tension was great at first but it went on and on and on. I don't know maybe I prefer more to be left to the imagination, but that's just me.
I also couldn't help but feel slightly ashamed of myself for not being able to stop. I mean what is it with these super tough but vulnerable guys with anger issues? Is that really what women want? Not me. Possessive? To a degree yes I want (and have) that, but this was off the scale. Needed? Yes I want (and have) that, but this seemed rather unhealthy. Someone who will fight for me? Let's face it we all want that, but to not even bat an eyelid when he hospitalises someone or live in fear someone will get hurt if you look at them? That's just not right.
Bitter taste aside I have to admit it's job well done in terms of a seriously passionate intense romance.

This is a fine debut from this author, and for the most part it is very well written. The characterisation is spot on. The author has managed quite spectacularly to give readers a hero that ticks all of their boxes. He's tall muscular, sexy, protective, damaged and is a man of few words. Except when it really matters.

When Brooke Dumas's best friend Melanie, takes her to an underground boxing match featuring Remington "Riptide" Tate. Little does she know her life will never be the same from that day on. Brooke a failed Olympic contender due to an injury. Now works in sports rehab. Brooke is overwhelmed by her immediate attraction to Remy. So when he invites her to his next match, and after to his hotel room. She's totally surprised when he offers her a job.

The story is well thought out, though the building of the sexual tension does perhaps go on for a little too long. I have read other reviewers comments that Brooke the heroine was a bit whiny and needed to try to understand what Remy was telling her, as to why he wouldn't have sex with her till she got to know him better. But then he kept giving her so many mixed signals. Like sleeping with her touching and kissing, basically driving her mad. So it wasn't surprising she became frustrated with him. But of course he has a secret, that he's keeping from her. So all this just gave the appearance that Brooke was just "in lust" with Remy.
The story is told from Brooke's POV, I would have preferred to have had Remy's thoughts as well, although we do get that in the epilogue, but I would have liked to have heard more from him.

This is overall a good book, and I will definitly be reading the next book in the series. Lets hope we don't have to wait too long.
