REAL Blog Tour: Guest Post - Meet Brooke and Remington + Giveaway

Welcome to day four of our seven days of GET REAL fun! I'm thrilled to be sharing today's guest post with all of you because it's just... plain brilliant, for reals. ;p

There's only FIVE DAYS left until REAL will be released into the wild, into all of your hands and this makes me incredibly excited and nervous and stoked and anxious. A mix of feelings, huh? It's because... well, here's a disclaimer from Katy Evans, herself!

If they want to relax with a book, REAL is not their book.
If they want fluff, REAL is not their book!
If they want a soft pitter patter of rain, baby, nope. REAL is not their book.


It's gonna grab them and not let go and it's gonna be tense, exhilarating, nerve-wracking, a little painful, a whole lot sexy, and wonderful, too.
Once they know that . . . then I think they're going to delight in every little part of the book and, especially, in REMY.

The book is quite somethin' else. It's original, lusty, intense, real, crazy, sexy, and... all the things. Some people will fall and trip over themselves for REAL and others might look at those people who have tripped like, "What book did they read?" Either way, I think readers should give this one a chance because well, I just wanna know how you feel about it once you finish it, lol.

About the book:

Release date: April 9, 2013

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?

Book #1 of The Real Series
Mature New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance - recommended for ages 18 and up.

Guest post: Meet REAL’s Brooke Dumas and Remington Tate

Hey everyone! Ok, so you've read the interview and the excerpt, it’s time for you to get a little more close and personal with Brooke and Remington. So let me tell you a little bit about them.


Brooke Dumas is an ex sprinter who dreamed of going to the Olympics one day. Sadly, she tore her ligament at tryouts and her dream vanished into thin air. For years, she struggled with depression and the sensation of being broken, and with the help of her best friend, Melanie, she’s pulled through and has reinvented herself. Now, she wants to help other athletes who've suffered from sports injuries like she has and has become a sports rehab specialist.

Brooke is sweet and confident, giving and reserved, and from the moment I met her I knew I had met Remington Tate’s match. I love the way Brooke owns herself and, eventually, what she wants, and yet Brooke had never seen or met anything like Remington before. He is hot, raw, and fierce, and the moment she meets him, she fears her life will never be the same. Her walls come up automatically, while at the same time, Remington shatters them with his sexy blue eyes and his immediate possessiveness:

He steps forward, and his damp hand slides into the nape of my neck. My pulse skitters as he lowers his dark head to set a small, dry kiss on my lips. It feels like he’s marking me. Like he’s preparing me for something monumental. That could both change and ruin my life. “Brooke,” he growls softly, meaningfully, against my lips, as he draws back with a smile. “I’m Remington.”

Brooke is never the same again, for Remington begins to consume her…


Remington Tate is a simmering force.

A fallen boxer, he now fights his way in the Underground circuit, blowing not only other’s men’s faces open, but everyone’s mind, as well! He charges after Brooke from the first moment he sees her, and from that moment on, I have to say, Brooke doesn’t seem to stand a chance!

In fact, writing Remington Tate is the most fantastic writer’s experience I’ve ever had, he is so terribly exciting. He took over from the first moment he appeared on page and he never let go. He surprised me in every chapter in a way that had me angsting to get back to my laptop whenever I had to do anything other than write him. When he enchanted Brooke, he enchanted me! He dazzled me not only with his strength and complete overwhelming hotness, but also with glimpses of his personality that just wowed me in a way that made me, just like Brooke, fall and fall hard.

Remington is not only extremely compelling because of the intricacies of his mysterious character –cocky, but reserved//strong but gentle// playful boy and serious man—but also because he’s deliciously imperfect. He’s so real and raw, and throughout his life, he has single-handedly made himself a force to be reckoned with. He is not only Remington Tate, but he is also RIPTIDE, a famous fighter in the Underground league who is also called among his loyal fans as RIP… (May his opponents Rest In Peace!)

I have to say there has been no hero that I have ever read, or written, that has touched me so deeply or owned me so completely as Remington Tate. He’s so much more than those dimples, his fists, and his cocky attitude. He has a deep wounded soul and at the bottom of this fierce raw beast is a man willing to do anything for love, and that makes both his girl and me want to do anything right back for a man as special and beautiful, inside and out, as him.

I can’t wait for you guys to meet him and fall in love with him along with Brooke and me.

What do you guys think of these two, eh? I absolutely cannot wait for all of you to meet them! Leave me comments below! Tell me, tell me, tell me!

About the author:

Katy Evans had a pet cougar while growing up; a big, fanged cat which later needed to be sent to the zoo for playfully trying to attach itself to Katy's jugular. From then on, she grew up with much safer companions like books and book-boyfriends until she found a real sexy boyfriend to love, married him, and now they are hard at work on their own happily ever after. Katy loves her family and friends, and she also loves reading, walking, baking, and being consumed by her characters until she reaches "The End." Which, is hopefully, only the beginning...

To find more about her, look her up on her website, Twitter, or Facebook, she'd also love to hear from you!
