My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He's the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something.
His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero.
There's zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.
He may leave no trace of him anywhere, but his imprint is in me, in my very soul--and I hate that a mere look at him commands the beat of my heart. The temperature of my body.
I've looked for love my entire life. I've waited for the butterflies, the rainbows...
Instead I'm in a free fall of emotions and there's no one to catch me but the one man I should be running away from. The one man I thought was my prince charming.
Except this prince charming went rogue.
Greyson will stop at nothing to make me be with him. He'll let no one stand in our way, will allow no one to threaten me, and maybe this is what scares me most of all...
Holy $#*! Balls, Batman! I thought Remy's books were intense, but Katy ups the intensity, the passion, and the sexy in this new installment in the Real series. I found myself blushing profusely, as I sat reading this on the train. However, that didn't stop me from flying through its pages. Greyson is just as intense as Remy, so if you were a fan of his books, then you will love this one too.
I loved how Melanie's love story turned out not to be conventional. Like so many girls, she dreamed of the prince charming who would come and sweep her off her feet, but Greyson was the exact opposite of what she thought she wanted. Greyson makes for the perfect leading man - tall, dark, damaged, with just the right amount of danger. He is a dark knight, rather than a white knight, and all the more perfect because of it. Their love story is perfectly imperfect.
This book is so full of passion that I'm surprised that it didn't burst into flames in some parts. From the very first page, I was lost to this story. I couldn't put it down, and when I finished it, I had the urge to go back to the beginning and start again. It is the perfect mix of passion, danger, angst, drama, and fairy tale. Another stellar novel from Katy.
Note: You should read the previous books in the series first to avoid spoilers!
Up next in the Real series...
Book #5: Ripped
Expected release date: December, 2014
Seattle shakes with anticipation: they call it the concert of the year. They say girls are getting pregnant just thinking about my band being in town.
But when you love a girl, you don't leave her with nothing but a ring and a promise. Any man with half a brain should know.
So what did I expect my girl would do when she saw me again?
Well, for starters, she loathes our music. Particularly the song I wrote about her.
When I sing it, the stadium is in an uproar. Thousands of fans scream my name like I'm a god--but yeah, not her. Crystal clear: the girl's not happy to see me.
Black hair, black boots, a bad attitude, that's her -- Pandora Stone is a freaking man-eater and she's out for my blood.
