I began writing reviews a few years ago after I was blown away
by this beautiful broken yet amazingly strong boy named Remington
"Remy" Tate. I had never even attempted to review a book before. I
finished Real by Katy Evans and I couldn’t contain the emotions it caused to
bubble up inside of me. I am not sure how a character can simply become someone
you feel like you actually know, someone you care about and root for. Remy
became my favorite hero .and still is.
I fell so hard for this hero that every hero after Remy was
measured against this perfect alpha and usually couldn't match him. I felt this
series has just captured my heart in a way I can't convey in simply English.
This series is so special to me, and the first book Real will by
far live in my heart forever.
Every single book after Real touched me and captured a little piece
of my soul. To find out this is then end ..well it’s bittersweet and I felt so
sad yet craved it anyway.
Maverick “The Avenger” Cage
Maverick was another beautiful broken boy who filled all the cracks in his soul
with the steel of a warrior. His determination and his drive could literally be
felt vibrating from the pages.
I felt his rejections and his hope dwindling but at the same time I also felt
his soul and spirit drive him harder at every closed door.
Reese with 3 words changed this wonderful man's life along with her own and my
favorite Remington Tate.
With 3 words bonds were built and wars were
waged between enemies that aren't the ones in our face but those behind us.
3 words.. Maverick
was not only determined to fight his way to the top. He was absolutely sure
that Reese would be his and that he'd not stop till he was worthy of her love.
I can't tell you how you'll feel reading this beyond breathtaking story but I
will tell you what I felt.
for each moment these two spent together.
She calls to me on the most primitive level. She’s in my fucking veins. This girl.
at how close the grew even in times apart. How one simple touch between these two surpassed pages of sex I've read in
that one conversation had more emotional depth than you can
Eagerness and melancholy
that I didn't want it to end yet couldn't stop
in how Katy took a match that you don't know who to root for but
absolutely convinces you the winner who was meant to win did in the end. And
winner isn't the right word and singular isn't the right term. Because winning
in life isn't always the victor at the end of a soul crushing battle, it's the
feeling you accomplished creating something, a feeling of rightness, a family,
bonds, and in the end a legacy.
With this series I'll always think back to heroes who fought hard to find
themselves along with the woman that fits them and makes them even stronger.
Heroines who weren't perfect but found the belonging and family in men who
aren't to proud or too strong to hand over their heart. Heroes that are totally
loyal and proud to be faithful.
Katy has not just written stories she's created characters who are so vivid, so
REAL that they will live on always.. Even after that last page.
I will never forget...
