Why I read it:
I was offered a review copy from the author after I got caught up in the Twitter buzz.
What it’s about:
(from Goodreads) A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
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?
What worked for me (and what didn’t):
I’m on a dirty talker hero glom
at present. Remy doesn’t say much usually, but he likes to talk dirty in bed, or the shower or … well, you get the picture. Remy is also a bit superhuman when it comes to sexytimes (- his stamina rivals that of the Black Dagger Brotherhood
, get me?)Remington Tate is an interesting character, physically very strong and imposing and, in many ways, ruthlessly disciplined. In other ways, Remy is out of control. He is emotionally extremely vulnerable as well and that combination does tend to make a particularly yummy hero.
