My swoon is from REAL (Real, Raw & Ripped #1) by Kate Evens. I LOVE Remy! Remington 'Riptide' Tate is definitely true to his title Real, Raw & Ripped! I was soooo drooling over alpha male Remy this week! The way he claims HIS woman Brooke...well, lets just say I wish I could've jump into this book and let Remy claimed all of me he wanted! LOL  I have two swoons between Remy and Brooke, but this whole book is Hot, Raw, and Smexy!!!

Alpha Men Remy claiming his women Brooke swoons:

 He grabs my wrists and angrily yanks me forward, pinning my arms down.
  "Why'd you want to have sex with me? To have a fucking adventure? What was I supposed to be? Your one-night-fucking stand? I'm every women's adventure, damn you, and I don't want yo be yours. I want to be your fucking REAL. You get that? If I fuck you, I want you to belong to me. To be mine. I want you to give yourself to me--not Riptide!"
  " I won't ever be yours if you don't take me. Take me! You son of a bitch, can't you see how much I want you?"

Swoon 2
His arms come out, and he tangles ten angry fingers in my hair as he yanks my head back in his fists and buries his nose in my neck, growling softly. His deep inhale reaches me, and a shudder runs through my body as I do the same, absorbing every color and Flavor of his strong male scent into my body through my nostrils. His tongue flashes out to lick a wet path up my neck as an arm coils around my waist, and he crushes me to his body, whispering, "Mine."


  1. Interesting. I'm liking his possessive streak.
