BLOG TOUR - 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.


We all fell in love with Remy in REAL.  I didn’t think it was possible to love him more, but Katy Evans, you managed to do it.  I bow to you, you have done it again; Remy is seriously probably every woman’s #1 Book Boyfriend!!!  Remy seriously melts the panties off of thousands of woman every day.  His washboard abs with eight squares – eight, I say.  He is just so lickable! I mean loveable. What I would do to run my tongue over his body…. Hmmm

Remy stole our hearts with his blue eyes, that sexy smirk, and those infamous dimples. He is Brooke’s REAL. 
“Since I met you, all I wanted was to be yours.  You said you were mine.  That you were my… my … REAL.”  ~ Brooke

He groans softly and squeezes me hard against him. 
“I’m the realest fucking thing you’re ever going to have.” ~ Remy

Remy and Brooke have a love that is hard to describe.  Most will probably never experience it.  They love hard, and they fight hard.  They are the air that each other needs to breathe.  Sometimes life isn’t always as it appears.  Sometimes we find out things that we didn’t want to know.  The question is, if we love them enough, can we see past it?  Brooke finds out something that rocks her world and may possibly change everything between her and Remy.  Is Brooke going to let this break her?  Can Brooke get past this?  Should it even bother Brooke?  Does she have a right to be angry at Remy?  When Brooke begins to pull away from Remy, he reacts.  He will do whatever he needs to do, to make sure that she doesn’t continue to push him away.  To have her lips, hands and body on him.  He will even hurt himself in the process if he has to.  Remy needs Brooke, like a crack addict needs their next fix. 
“Stop hurting yourself,” ~ Brooke

“It doesn’t hurt,” ~ Remy

“You.  Crying in my fucking arms.  Because I fucking hurt you.  That hurts.  You… not touching me.  Not looking up at me like you do, with those sweet little happy eyes.  Hurts. I’m hurting like a motherfucker and not one piece of me hurts on the outside like it does where you make it hurt.” ~ Remy

Brooke and Remy’s lives are about to change and Remy has to make a decision that is best for the both of them, and especially Brooke.  Remy needs Brooke to be strong; to be a fighter.  Remy needs Brooke to fight for him and to fight with him, not against him.  My heart broke to see what the two of them were going through, but I understood why Remy did it.  For him to make that decision, just proved to me the love he had for Brooke.
“You,” he says, his voice terse and commanding as he drags his wet thumb across my lips, “are going to love me until I die. I’m going to make you love me even if it hurts, and when it hurts, I’m going to make it better, Brooke.” ~ Remy

“You’re going to fucking love me if it kills us.” ~ Remy
Sometimes Brooke doesn’t understand Remy.  Do we always understand the ones that we love?  All we can do is trust them.  All Remy asks is that she loves the hell out of him.  As we know, Remy is bipolar and manic.  When he has his dark days, Brooke is the drug that me needs to pull him from it.  She is his rock, his REAL.

Brooke and Remy have grown as a couple and their love for each other is evident.  The connection between Remy and Brooke is undeniable.  The pull is so strong that neither of them can live without each other.  They know what each other is thinking, even without speaking words aloud. 

“Remy is ripped, raw and so REAL.  He is all mine – or at least, that’s all I want in the world.  For him to be mine.” ~ Brooke
Remy and Brooke are always there to support each other.  But sometimes we need to do things for ourselves.  Remy makes a decision to help himself that Brooke doesn’t agree with.  Will she stand by him?  Will she run again?  Will this help Remy? 

“You don’t have to save him; just be with him while he saves himself.” ~ Pete

I didn’t think it was possible to love Remy more than I already did.  He is a man of few words, but when he speaks, he speaks from his heart and his words hit you hard.  I don’t ever think I will be able to look at another red rose and not think of Remy.  The things that he went through in his life are heart breaking.  To know that a parent would do that to their child crushed my heart.  To see that Remy came out on top and found love with Brooke gives me chills, knowing that he has someone that loves him unconditionally, flaws and all.  Brooke is his, to love and cherish forever.  Brooke grew in this book, and it clearly shows in the decisions that she made.  Brooke will do whatever it takes to love Remy.  She will not abandon him and she makes sure to tell him and show him every day that she loves him.
“You’re blinded because you’re mine.” ~ Remy

“No. I see you because I’m yours.” ~ Brooke
