A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
IS HE FOR REAL?
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
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.
If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants
The crowd goes crazy, calling all the way to the lobby, “Riptide! Riptide!” and then they fall completely quiet, as though something unscripted has just happened.
I wonder about the eerie silence when pounding footsteps echo at my back. A warm hand engulfs mine, and the touch frissons through me as I’m spun around with surprising force.
“What the…” I gasp in confusion, and then stare into a sweaty male chest, and up into glowing blue eyes. My senses reel out of control. He’s so close the scent of him tears through me like a shot of adrenaline.
“Your name,” he growls, panting, his eyes wild on mine.
“Brooke what?” he snaps out, his nostrils flaring.
His animal magnetism is so powerful I think he just took my voice. He’s in my personal space, all over it, absorbing it, absorbing me, taking my oxygen, and I can’t understand the way my heart is beating, the way I stand here, shivering with heat, my entire body focused on the exact spot his hand is wrapped around me.
With trembling efforts, I pry my hand free and glance frightfully at Mel, who comes behind him, wide-eyed. “It’s Brooke Dumas,” she says, and then she happily shoots out my cell phone number. To my chagrin.
His lips curl and he meets my gaze. “Brooke Dumas.” He just fucked my name right in front of me. And right in front of Mel.
And as I feel his tongue twist roughly around those two words, his voice sinfully dark, like things you crave to eat but really shouldn’t, desire swells between my legs. His eyes are hot and almost proprietary when he looks at me. I’ve never been stared at like this before.
He steps forward, and his damp hand slides into the nape of my neck. My pulse skitters as he lowers his dark head to set a small, dry kiss on my lips. It feels like he’s marking me. Like he’s preparing me for something monumental. That could both change and ruin my life.
“Brooke,” he growls softly, meaningfully, against my lips, as he draws back with a smile. “I’m Remington.”
The magnet force that Remy has pulls you in from the beginning. What an AMAZING book. I am so glad I stumbled on this. I had not heard much about it but bought it because it sounded good. Good is a complete understatement. This book was FANFREAKINTASTIC. Both Brooke and Remy have issues. Brooke is a former athlete, who at the height of her career was injured. She has rebounded from this and became strong and independent but has no desire for relationships. Remy is bipolar and suffers from manic episodes. He always needs a women to wind him down and take off the edge. He wants Brooke but fights really hard to keep it anything but professional. Remy has a love at first sight for her. Brooke is drawn to him and always wondering why he has not made a move for her. The struggles to keep way from each other eventually drop and then their love story starts. OH MY is all I have to say Remy would and does ANYTHING to make Brooke happy. The have amazing chemistry and they both really understand each other. The amazing love he has with her is so heartfelt. Katy Evan has done such a wonderful job with this book. There will be 2 more following this one. The next is Mine a continuation and the third is told from Remington’s point of view.
