Review: Mine by Katy Evans


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


4.5 Star Review by Lisa Kane

"You're blinded because you're mine."
"No. I see you because I'm yours."

Remy “Riptide” Tate is back and if you loved Real you will be ecstatic over Mine. Brooke and Remy have a solid relationship in this book. They have weathered the obstacles that were put in their path in Real and although Remy still has his bi-polar issues and Brooke has tons of guilt over Remy losing the championship to Scorpion because of her sister, there is no doubting of their love for each other.

Remy is competing-going from city to city fighting his way back to the championship. Brooke is with him, acting as his physical therapist and of course his partner. Her relationship with her family is strained and her sister Nora and she are still not getting along. Brooke won’t tolerate anyone or anything hurting Remy.

What. The hell. Is my sister smoking now?

Scorpion still has a few tricks up his sleeve and Remy has become more alpha than ever to protect Brooke from his venom.

I can also feel his frustration. He wanted to go defend me, and they stopped him. I can feel his angry turmoil whirling around us as I clamber into bed with him and cover us to the waist.

These two could burn up the pages with their chemistry!

“I’m taking you. In me. I’m biting your neck and…Remy, Remy…” I never knew I could come like this, but the instant I hear that low, drawn-out, sexy groan he sometimes releases when he’s starting to come, I lose it. Because I’ve never seen anyone come like he does.

There are quite a few twists thrown in this book. Things will test their love for each other. Like steel they will have their relationship tempered to see if they will bend without breaking, can they make it in spite of the forces around them that are trying to break them up? Some past actions of Remy’s haunt Brooke and she has to move past these. Remy has demons he must battle and they become painful for Brooke to witness. Remy grew up with the parents from hell and their reappearance knocks him off his axis. The ramifications are severe and Brooke’s resolve is tested.

“You don’t screw it up for him, Brooke,” Diane assures me. “You love him. You’re the only woman he’s ever loved and the only person who’s loved him and accepted him as is. He wasn’t given love growing up. He was rejected and cast aside. How hard do you think he will defend you?”

These two broken souls fit the pieces missing in their hearts. Their love and devotion for each other is so clear amidst the turmoil that tosses them adrift. 

Mine explores their relationship in more depth than Real. Having established their feelings and intentions at the end of the last book, Mine is more about adult issues and external pressures trying to chip away at them. Remy is a bigger than life character and Brooke is the perfect soul mate for him.
