Book Review: Mine

Mine (Real #2) 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.

Emma's thoughts: I received an ARC as part of the Mine Blog Tour.

Ok, let me start by saying that this review will be spoiler free as don’t believe in ruining a storyline for others.

Mine.... one of my most can’t wait to read sequels ~ and let me just say that I LOVED Real and fell for Remy in a big way (another book crush), but, and I really hate to have a but because I so wanted to love this book as much as the first ~ it didn’t flow as well to me and I wasn’t hooked to the degree that I couldn’t put it down, don’t get me wrong I did enjoy it and Remy is still one hot bag of hotness (I want one, lol), the naughty scenes are very well written if you know what I mean ;) I found Brooke a tad whiny but didn’t annoy me to a big degree but I loved the fact that everyone from the Real was still in Mine and it continued right through.

I will and am looking forward to reading Remy (Remy’s point of view), I reckon that’ll make for an interesting read.

Katy Evan is a lovely person and I want to congratulate her on another really good book, keep up the good work and continue to write loads of fantastic novels with hot men in (joking) ha ha.

TeriLyn's Thoughts: I couldn't wait for the release of Mine. I loved Real where Remy and Brooke's story is fresh and unique. There were parts of Mine that I loved and parts that I didn't. I did not like Mine as much as Real. I think the uniqueness of Real set it apart from others. Mine gets redundant in certain parts. It seems a little drug out in places where I think the plot could have been developed a bit more. However, I love that their love is consuming and I love how they need each other. I love that they are who they are and make no excuses for it. They are quite animalistic, obviously, through Brooke's descriptions. Some of the things they do I find strange, but it also strangely suits them. Although some of the petting, licking, scenting was repeated so many times. Her lion references were constant. Throughout the entire story though, Remy and Brooke find the other half of their souls in each other. Remy is one of the strongest male characters. He keeps fighting, every single day, to live. He is often crippled by his mental disease but he lives with it and does what he needs to do to live. His will power and fight are astounding. Remy's feelings for Brooke never waiver, I love that about him. He makes no excuses for how he feels; all he wants in return is acceptance. When Remy tells Brooke that he loves her, I believe him; from the pit of my heart I believe it. He needs her, wants her, loves her and he melts my heart. Brooke drove me crazy in the first 20-25% of the book. Her self-pity and guilt was a bit much for me, I just wanted her to get over it. However, after the inital annoyance she totally redeemed herself, in my opinion. I thought she showed significant growth. All of her feelings of inadequacy through the middle of the book were totally founded. She was dealing with a lot. Her need for Remy was not being met and she was worried about him. Brooke's acceptance of Remy and her will power to fight for him and beside him made me forget about how she drove me crazy in the beginning. I loved the way their story ended. I felt closure on their story and know they are exactly where they are supposed to be in their lives. It was satisfying. The secondary characters were awesome here again. I love Pete and Riley, Diane and Coach, Melanie, even Nora (though I wanted to strangle her). Mine wraps up the story of Brooke and her blue-eyed fighter beautifully.
