MINE (The REAL Series #2) Review!!!!

Publication Date:  11/5/13

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.

*SPOILERS*

I loved REAL.  In fact I called it my favorite book of the year so far back in June.  Seeing a fighter who is struggling with a mental illness and somehow finding true love was such a powerful and beautiful story to me.  I loved everything Remy.  In fact I would have been happy if it was just a standalone novel.

MINE is good.  There are parts that are amazing.  Remy being Remy is always amazing.  But Brooke in this one, annoyed the hell out of me.  Her possessive, whiny, irritatingly moody attitude was there for about 75% of the book.  Towards the end it becomes amazing again.  Although all the licking freaked me out a bit...lol

Her family made me crazy.  Her parents confuse me because they love her, but she says they look down on her for tearing her ACL, and yet they seem heartbroken because she is pregnant with Remy's child.  Her sister, Nora, is as irritating as she was in the first book.  I get why she does what she does, but seriously, haven't Remy & Brooke sacrificed enough for this stupid girl?

Remy and his rag tag posse are amazing, and the only saving grace to this book.  His strength is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time.  I actually felt even deeper for him on this one.  He is conflicted and his family is...well ridiculous!  We find out what happened to him as a kid in this book and it is disgusting.  Some people shouldn't procreate.

Because of Remy and his gang I give this 4 lipsticks.  If I was to judge this on Brook it would have been 3 lipsticks.

Katy Evans, thank you for giving us Remy.  I can't wait to read his version in REMY!
