Review--Real by Katy Evans

"But something about you made me think you’d know me, understand me on a level no one else does.” ~~Remington Tate

I had to take a day to really think about how I wanted to express my opinion of this book. First of all, it is the first book that I have read that takes on Bipolar Disorder. As a therapist/social worker, I can appreciate how difficult this disease is to live with for the person who is bipolar and those around them. Katy accurately and passionately brings the symptoms to light in a character that is easy to like but sometimes difficult to understand. The relationship that builds between Brooke and Remington is one of great passion and control, the control being on his part as far as not rushing into things. He is a champion fighter, but his temper and manic episodes have gotten him in trouble so he has to fight "underground." She is an ex-Olympic contender with a career-ending injury, turned sports rehabilitation specialist. They connect at one of his fights that her friend drags her to and things go from there. This story had me on the edge of my seat and it was a wonderful ride. I found myself thinking about the story even after I put the book down. It is one that stays with you. The sex is hot, the suspense is wonderful and the characters are REAL. Thank you, Katy, for a great book!! 5 out of 5
