About FIRST NIGHT & EVER AFTERS:

A sexy short story of handcuffs, lace and one hot night in a bar featuring supporting characters from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling novels TROPHY HUSBAND and PLAYING WITH HER HEART.
****
Fiery bartender Julia Bell has been hit on by her fair share of customers and has never so much as batted an eye in response. After all, she wants a man who can claim her body AND captivate her mind. Enter Clay Nichols, the entertainment lawyer with a dirty mind and a mouth to match. Their connection is off the charts hot, but can it last beyond the first night?
*****
What happens after the happy ending? Bestselling author Lauren Blakely gives readers a glimpse of the happily ever afters for her popular romantic couples – Kat and Bryan from Caught Up In Us, Chris and McKenna from Trophy Husband, Jill and Davis from Playing With Her Heart, and Jane and Matthew from Far Too Tempting.

The ebook is FREE!
Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H8AFSMA/

In addition, Lauren released a box set that’s specially priced through the holidays! Called TANGLED UP IN LOVE and featuring a gorgeous never-seen-before cover, the box set includes the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling novels CAUGHT UP IN US, TROPHY HUSBAND, and PLAYING WITH HER HEART and the bestselling novella PRETENDING HE’S MINE for only $3.99 through Christmas!! That’s nearly 75% off the price of the books individually and that price lasts one more week only! (For readers that own all her books, TANGLED UP IN LOVE makes for a great Christmas gift for a friend; for someone who’s new to her
books, this is an ideally priced starting point; and if you’ve only read one of her romances, the box set is still an economical way to snag the rest of her contemporary romance novels!)

when Harley tells me this, I am rocked to the core, and terrified of
what happens next. Especially when now it’s not her past that chases
me, it’s someone from my own. And that someone is messing with my head
when I’m trying to be strong for Harley. But all I really want is to
escape with the girl I love…For the rest of our lives.

How can you move forward when the past keeps chasing you?

I fell in love with Remy the moment he was introduced to us. There’s just something about an imperfect, highly flawed man wrapped up in a perfect package… sigh…

I said this about Book #1 – “This is the first time since owning a kindle that I actually want a paperback copy of a book. And I plan to dog-ear it with multiple re-reads!”

Have to say I haven’t dog-earred my copy yet but I’m halfway there 😉

Real Series by Katy Evans

real-300x467

Real (Real #1) by Katy Evans

 

HOT. SEXY. POWERFUL. PAINFUL. REAL. The scorching international bestseller that strips away everything you’ve ever believed about passion…

Remington Tate has a bad-boy rep in and out of the ring, a granite-hard body, and a raw, animal power that sends his female fans into a frenzy. But from the moment their eyes lock, the only woman he wants is Brooke Dumas. His desire is pure, all-consuming, and REAL.

Hired to keep his perfect body working like a machine, Brooke finally has the lucrative sports therapy job she’s been dreaming of. But as she tours the dangerous underground fighting circuit with Remy and his team, Brooke’s own body becomes alive with the most primal of hungers. If what happens between Brooke and Remy is ever as light as a flirtation, it quickly becomes an erotic obsession for them both, and promises so much more.

But their white-hot lust has a dark side—and when Remy’s deepest secret comes to light and Brooke’s familial duties demand action, will the pair be able to hang on, or will everything that once seemed so real suddenly fade away like an illusion?

 

My Take:

 

This is one of those books that grabs you from the beginning and won’t let go.  I could not stop reading and had a major book hangover after.  The characters have such an amazing, steamy chemistry.  The minute Remington “Riptide” Tate set eyes on Brooke Dumas, it was all over.  She was his.  I loved Remy’s possessiveness.  His character is intense and damaged  and I couldn’t wait to see what happened next.   If you are on the fence on whether to start this series next, the answer is YES! Start reading NOW.  I promise you won’t be sorry.

Mine (Real #2) by Katy Evans

 

The heart is a hollow muscle, and it will beat billions of times during our lives. About the size of a fist, it has four chambers: two atria and two ventricles. How this muscle can house something as encompassing as love is beyond me. Is this heart the one that loves? Or do you love with your soul, which is infinite? I don’t know. All I know is that I feel this love in every molecule in my body, every breath I take, all the infinity in my soul. I learned that you can’t run if you tear a ligament, but your heart can be broken into a million pieces, and you can still love with your whole being.

I’ve been broken and put together again.

I’ve been loved, and I have loved.

I’m in love, and I will be forever changed by this love, by this man. I used to dream of medals and championships, but now I dream solely of a blue-eyed fighter who one day changed my life, when he put his lips on mine…

 

My Take:

 

Wow…how to even begin.  I absolutely LOVE Remington “Riptide” Tate!  Remy and Brooke are HOT together.    She soothes his savage beast and he makes her feel complete.  This book is a continuation of their story and it was brilliant! I loved every single moment of it.  My poor family had to just wait until I was finished with this book because I could not pull myself away.  I am still finding myself dazing off during the day thinking about the story.

Remy (Real #3) by Katy Evans

New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans expands upon the intense love story begun in Real and Mine—this time from Remington “Riptide” Tate’s point of view.

Underground fighter Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. At times his actions and moods are carefully measured, and at others, they spin out of control.

Through it all, there’s been one constant: wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas. This is his story; from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he’s ever had to fight for.

 

My Take:

 

It was so exciting getting to see the “Remy & Brooke” story thru Remy’s eyes.  I was worried I wouldn’t like this book as much as the first two books in the series because it was going back over what had already happened…but I was VERY pleasantly surprised.  It was FANTASTIC! You get to fully understand what was going on inside his head, and at the same time, getting to see a different perspective of the same situation.  PLUS, you get to see the wedding (which I LOVED)!  If you haven’t read these books…READ THEM NOW!

Ripped (Real #4) by Katy Evans

 

The fourth book in the New York Times new adult series that began with Real. When an angry, heartbroken girl is forced to be near her rocker ex-boyfriend, only time will tell if the fire between them will consume them both.

Pandora, the gothic friend of Brooke (Real, Mine, Remy) and Melanie, thought that getting her heart broken by her bad boy rocker ex could only happen once. But now, he’s back in town with the biggest concert of the year. Pandora hates him so much that she gets Melanie to come with her and play a prank on him at his gig. But when they are caught by security, and her ex himself is summoned, he decides not to press charges if she’ll follow certain conditions. Pandora likes none of his rules, or that he’s in charge of her, especially since they seem designed to make sure she’s in close contact with him again. But the closeness reignites the passion they once shared, and soon no matter how much she wants to hate him, it’s clear she’s still hung up on him. And worse: he knows it too.
