BLOG TOUR + GIVEAWAY ~Mine by Katy Evans~

Title: Mine
Author: Katy Evans
Series: Real #2
Release Date: November 5, 2013

My Rating: 5 Stars!
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.
Literally, one of the top most anticipated books for 2013 and, for me, it definitely delivered. First off, to clear up any confusion this is all in Brooke's POV. Remy, which is obviously in Remy's POV comes out on November 26! Anywho, I loved Mine. It's basically more of everything I fangirl-ed about in Real. More vivid imagery of Remy working out, more development into his and Brooke's relationship, and more insight into him and their time apart. All with the reality looming over us that these two will forever have to work for their relationship. But if anything Mine solidified Brooke and Remy's unfailing commitment to each other.

"I fear that even when I've given everything of myself to this man, he will always have me, but he will never really be mine."

Brooke and Remy have already been through their fair share of shit storms, but the hits just keep on coming in Mine. In a short amount of time their lives are completely altered and they must push through, or risk falling into a vicious circle. I, for one, loved the twists and turns this book took. However, I will warn you that some of it is a bit repetitive of Real's plot. Having said that, I wholeheartedly believe the points warranted a re-visiting. And it wasn't exhaustive reading about it either. It's just like the practice of coming back to a problem with newer and fresher eyes. You see a solution that you couldn't see before. I think the story line of this book brought more closure to certain aspects that were left open in Real.

"I know that's the way my life will be; after the dark, I will always, always find my light- which is him."

I really enjoyed each and every chapter in this book. While Brooke and Remy haven't quite experienced adulthood yet the trials and tribulations they go through in Mine catapult them there, real quick. I saw Remy fight harder out of his dark spells and Brooke finally get the full picture of his illness. I was really quite terrified during parts of the book, because Brooke had some earth shattering revelations that I thought may crack her resolve. But she does grow quite a lot in Mine, as well. And oh boy, can we just talk about their chemistry and passion for one another? Because it is unbelievable. There were much more Brooke and Remy, "let's rip each other's clothes off" scenes in this book. Their emotional growth and magnetism, definitely transferred into the bedroom... and gym.. and bathroom... basically anywhere they damn well pleased :) But outside of their little bubble lies conflicts with just about everyone in their world. The couple couldn't catch a break, but never faltered in their endgame, or devotion to each other. Mine is every bit as heart-wrenching and captivating as its predecessor. And while it holds up on the angst as well, there are quite a few swoon worthy moments as well. Once again, Katy Evans has created a wonderful book that I will be sticking on my "re-read" shelf. And I will be anxiously awaiting Remy's POV story at the end of the month and the books of future couples to come!

Happy Reading!
