MINE was definitely an amazing read for me, I LOVED IT!
For those who haven't met Remington "Remy" Tate, he's an underground fighter. He's the sexiest male character ever and the intensity that he brings with him is out of this world. He met his mate Brooke Dumas, a physical therapist and a retired athlete, at one of his fights and when they saw each for the first time the connection was magnetic...
MINE follows REAL two months after its ending and now we see Remy and Brooke really together and trying to amend their loving/passionate relationship. However, Brooke specially has a hard time moving on from her past mistakes as she realizes how much hurt she had really caused. But then her love for Remy is really tested and she finds herself between having to choose to love completely unconditionally or give up the only man she's ever loved.
The beautiful Remy on the other hand, continues to be the strong, passionate, intense, fierce, and unapologetic character that he has has been since REAL. He reveals more of himself in this story through his personal struggles and vulnerabilities and it's at those times when he's forced to find the right balance so he can keep his Brooke by his side and keep striving in the ring.
I really enjoyed seeing Brooke overcome adversities and become a stronger character. She made me cried when she was Remy's rock and support; her devotion for him was so palpable. There were many life changing moments in the story that totally blew me away because they were so touching and beautiful. Those moments really illustrated the deepness of their love for each other.♥
I also loved Brooke's unique way to describe her feelings and Remy. It was a joy to read her thoughts and experience the story through her eyes and fall in love with Remy all over again with her.
Now my Remy, Remington, Riptide, Lion, and Blue-eyed devil was more than incredible in this book! He was a true fighter inside and outside the ring by showing absolute perseverance during the toughest times. He was also the sweetest and most passionate man to Brooke. In the same way he stole her heart, he totally stole mine too! I loved everything about Remy: his sex appeal, confidence, passion, intensity, possessiveness, fierceness, rawness, power, drive, and complexity. Such an exceptional character and one that will forever stay in my heart!♥
Katy Evans did a wonderful job with this sequel by giving us a deeper and more meaningful look into Remy and Brooke's story. She still maintained the high level of intensity from the characters (Remy!) but added so much more emotion from the events that happen in this story that change the characters forever. So for me, I see REAL as the time when Remy and Brooke "meet" and MINE as the time where they "fully connect." You'll see that both books overlap a little bit in MINE but that's just so the story can build up from events that occurred in REAL (which are very important). Then the story is brought to greater and more meaningful events that you'll totally love!
This is such a beautiful and strong read about soul mates, intense passion, challenging love, and complex characters. But mainly it's simply a story about fighting for love against all adversities.
A MUST, MUST READ!
