“I will do anything to make her MINE.” —Remington Tate
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 “Remy” 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, Brooke is torn away from the ringside. Now with distance and darkness between them, the only thing left is to fight for the love of the man she calls MINE.

Oh. My. GOODNESS. REMY!!! ❤
I honestly have no words to describe how much I enjoyed this book. I loved it! I loved every single part of Mine, from the writing to the characters and everything the book made me feel. And oh god, the feels. There is just so much happening in Mine that my heart was all over the place. I was smiling and so happy for the characters, and then my heart would be breaking and crying for them. Mine takes you on a roller coaster of emotions, and I loved every second of it!
“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.” He eases his thumb into my mouth and rubs it purposely against the tip of my tongue, the movie quietly demanding that I lick it. When I do, my breasts ache and I watch him extract his thumb to brush the wet pad across my bottom lip. “You’re going to fucking love me if it kills us.”
Mine starts off where Real left off. It’s been a while since Brooke came back to Remy, and this time, she’s with him for good. You can just feel the amount of love Brooke has for Remy, and I never had doubts about her. She is a fantastic heroine and an incredible narrator. I felt for Brooke and I just adore her. She’s a unique character. And the most important thing to her is Remy. She’ll do everything and anything to ensure he’s happy and that he will win the championship. She loves all of Remy, his blue-eyed side and his black-eyed side. You’d get that kind of devotion from the hero, but Brooke just exudes this protectiveness of Remy, and I absolutely admired her for it.
“I promise. I promise, you have my heart, and you have me. You will always have me.”
Remy. Is. Back! I was in love with him in Real, and he stole my heart again in Mine. I think I loved him even more in Mine too. He can be hot and sexy, he can be funny and cute, and he can be sweet and adorable. But most of all, Remy is primal. He’s like an animal, and Brooke even refers to him as her lion. “Mine” is Remy’s favorite word, and I swear, I swooned every time he said it! There’s just something about an intensely possessive, protective man that gets to me. *sighs* Remy is back in the Underground to fight and win the championship. And during all of his fights and training, you can feel the love this beautiful man has for Brooke. It’s different than in Real, because now nothing can get in the way of Brooke and Remy and their fierce romance. But… then something does happen, and unforeseen circumstances cause Remy and Brooke to separate. They are not broken up, mind you, but they can’t physically be together. And the physical aspect of their relationship is just as important as the mental and emotional ones. And let me tell you, Remy and Brooke are steaming hot in Mine!
“You’re everything I never knew I wanted.” He tucks back another tendril of hair behind my ear, his eyes a little too brilliant as he draws back. “And all mine, remember that tidbit.”
Even though Remy and Brooke aren’t physically together, their hearts are still one. Their love is the kind that is always burning and never wavering. These two are it for each other, and I can’t imagine anyone else who is perfect for them. And since we’re reading from Brooke’s POV, when they’re apart, we don’t get much Remy time, but he’s always present one way or another. He’s in Brooke’s heart, her thoughts, her dreams, and her desires. And I never to got tired of it. Brooke and Remy are meant to be.
“I want you, I love you like nothing in my fucking life, nothing.”
Their love is fierce, raw, and so full of passion. I was pretty much getting high off reading their story. For much of the book though, Remy is insecure about Brooke’s love. She left him once, and he’s terrified she’ll do it again. It’s heartbreaking how Remy never had love in his life before Brooke, but it’s so beautiful that this man who has never had an ounce of love from his parents can find it in himself to give his whole heart to the woman who means everything to him. And Remy isn’t the only one giving his all. Brooke is determined to prove to Remy that she truly loves him and won’t leave him again.
I honestly love the writing. It’s fresh and unique and I bow down to Katy Evans for her skill. It’s part of why I love Brooke and her narration so much. She’s such a likable and relatable character because of the way she talks and thinks and narrates.
Mine is a fantastic sequel to the equally stunning Real. You get more of Remy’s intensity, Brooke and Remy’s heartwarming romance, more sexy times, and more songs! I love the song Iris, all thanks to Katy Evans! I’m SO excited for the next book, Remy, now!!
