Review: Mine, by Katy Evans

Click to Purchase


He's mine, and I'm his. Our love is all-consuming, powerful,
imperfect, and real...

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 "Riptide" 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, she is torn away from his side. Now with distance and darkness between them, the only thing left is to fight for the love of the man she calls MINE.

3.75 out of 5 stars

Mine is the highly anticipated sequel to Remy.  I was really looking forward to this book and immediately snatched it up when it went on sale.  It picks up where Real left off so you may not want to read any further if you haven't read book #1.

When we left Remy and Brooke at the end of Real, Remy had just delivered Brooke's sister safely back to her and his real reasons for throwing the fight were brought to life.  They are back together and back on the underground fighting circuit.  Remy is as healthy as ever and nothing will stand in his way of being champion, with his love, Brooke, by his side he is unstoppable.  While her love is his greatest strength his love for her may just prove to also be his greatest weakness.

I really enjoyed Real, I loved watching the chemistry between Brooke and Remy continually grow stronger and stronger until it finally exploded.  This time around there was no build-up, they pick right back up where they left off.  Unfortunately, for me, it felt like this story was just watching the two of them professing their undying love for one another over and over through physical intimacy.  It felt as if it were a book of the many ways the two of them could have sex with a little story thrown in on the side.  Don't get me wrong, I love smut just as much as anyone else, but if its every other scene then it's just too much.

The other downside to this book for me was Brooke's character.  In Real, she seemed strong and in control where as in Mine, she came across as insecure and weak.  While I understand it's completely normal to feel insecure when your man is every woman's fantasy, at no point did Remy ever give her a reason to doubt his feelings for her.  She came across as super needy, and it seemed as though she picked fights for no other reason than to cause a little drama.

Those things aside I did however enjoy seeing where the two of them ended up and watching them get their HEA.  The writing is definitely good and Katy Evans can certainly write some steamy smut!  I think if you read Real then you cannot pass up the opportunity of reading Brooke and Remy's conclusion in Mine.
