Publisher's Summary

An indie phenomenon and a New York Times and USA Today best seller, the first in a heartwrenching new adult series about a beautiful young sports rehab specialist who can't fight her attraction to a dangerously sexy underground fighter - a fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…
He even makes me forget my name.
One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…
Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger. And now it's my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents...
But the one he's most threatening to now, is me. I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations... If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?

I loved everything about this book--narration, storyline, characters (lead & supporting), EVERYTHING. It's intense, sexually charged, emotional, heartbreaking, and worth every penny and second you spend listening to it. I love an alpha male/strong heroine type of story, but this one paints the alpha and love interest as challenged and scarred by life circumstances that have broken them down inside; but they find themselves and literally save each other through love and acceptance. In terms of intensity, there was a lot of 'build up' to when they finally get together. When it finally happens--YOWZA!!--it's EXPLOSIVE, but so delicious! I've already purchased the other two books and can't wait to see what happens next with these colorful characters. Definitely credit worthy, but it is reasonably priced so you could purchase it out right. Happy listening, you won't be disappointed.

One thing I do have to say is that this book is intense!  I was so absorbed in this book, that when it came to the end I wanted to start back at the beginning! When listening to this book, be prepared. Cold showers, panty changes, or other forms of...stress relievers may be needed. We're talking sexual frustration here. Don't get me wrong, these two were sizzling! It just seemed something or someone just kept getting in the way. Hell, Remington himself got in the way but he had his own reasons for that. Reasons that made perfect sense once explained later. Not that it made the sexual tension any less torture! The book starts out with Brooke being dragged to an underground fight one night with her best friends Melanie. Brooke isn’t the type of girl that usually goes to these types of things. She is a recent college grad and focusing on career in sports medicine/therapy. Brooke spent most of her life training for the Olympics, until she hurt her knee. Now she is just interested in helping other athletes. While watching the last fight, she see’s someone that gets her attention. Remington. He notices her right away in the cheering crowd. He knows right away she's special and wants her. Brooke receives tickets for another fight to see Remington. She starts talking herself into having a one night stand with him, because let's face it, she wants him. But he actually has a different offer all together, and next thing Brooke knows she's on the road with him. Remington “Riptide” Tate is the king of the underground boxing circuit. He’s beautiful, strong and easily the best piece of eye candy any woman will find. Brooke & Remy are inseparable. The longer together, the more the sexual tension between them builds... and builds... and builds... It makes you ready to combust, along with Brooke! The sexual tension in this book was un-freaking-believable! Eventually we got some major SMEXY scenes... Seriously! On the gym mats, shower, bed, anywhere and everywhere. Remy cannot get enough. The reason I love the character of Remington "Riptide" Tate was because of his animal magnetism, his possesiveness, loyalty, agression, vulnerability, and most important he was "Real!" The intensity of this man is off the charts!!  Katy Evans has created a very well written, seductive and passionate love story. Nothing in the story was roses and perfection. The road to HEA was a complete struggle with heartache and pain. The only thing I didn’t like was that it had to end. I’m very anxious for more and can hardly wait for audible to release the next book!
