He says he's no good for her.
She hates that he might be right.
Brook Dumas found Remington Tate in REAL, and now it's her best friend Melanie's turn to find the man who makes her heart sing. After years of searching, one night in the rain the strong and mysterious Greyson King comes to her rescue. He's bold and maybe just the lover, friend, and protector she's been searching for. When they make love, he says her name like it means something. Like she means something - and that's everything she's ever wanted.
He disappears for days without a word, and when he's around he says he'll only hurt her. But when he's away, her heart hurts more.
Then Melanie uncovers the dark world he'd been determined to keep hidden and suspects that their random first meeting might have not been so random after all.
Caught in a free fall of emotions, Melanie has no one to catch her but the man she should be running from....
But what do you do when your Prince Charming has gone Rogue?

Katy Evans has written another excellent book. After reading the Real Series I didn't want to spoil my memories of Remy and Brooke through the development of new characters, but I was very pleasantly surprised and loved Rogue. After reading the books I downloaded the Audio Books and was further blown away by the narration of Sebastian York, Charlotte Penfield and Shayna Thibodeaux. Can't wait to read and then listen to more books by Katy Evans. Sebastian York has an amazingly gifted voice; be careful if you are driving while listening to his narration, you don't want to drive off the road!!
"it was good"
however, I wasn't a fan of her voice. she sounded older.
as for the story. it was good. not great not bad.
"Good story but .....Shayna Thibodeaux's narration?"
I just don't understand. Why audible insists on using Shayna Thibodeaux as a narrator for all these great upcoming books when I have heard and read just how unsuitable her voice is for romance.
The story was great. I love Katy Evans writing style. Her books always include a great plot along with the romance.
Shayna Thibodeaux. Stop using Shayna Thibodeaux as a narrator for romance. She is more suitable for teen books that DON'T read as a romance. I just really don't understand why audible ignores the bad reviews. Follow the fans advice withShayna Thibodeaux, STOP using her as a romance narrator. Please, the audiobook might sell more. Her voice is very immature, she sounds like a 14 year old. This book is supposed to be a bit steamy and sexy but it sounded ridiculous.
I stopped listening and bought the e-book. It was wonderful. I'm returning this book.
Yes, audible needs to put some effort into casting. Teen books need a teen like narrator.YA books need a young adult narrator.New adult needs an older more mature read. I'm a little concerned why producers at audible seem to think its ok using a very young, immature, 14 yr old voice for a women in her mid twenties - thirty. REALLY????
"Narration ruined the story!!"
Please, please, please, do not use Shayna Thibodeaux for any of the upcoming narrators for this REAL series (or any audio book for that matter). She ruined the story for me! If I hadn't already liked Melanie from the previous 3 books, I would have disliked her character because of her voice. Melanie's voice was grating, annoying and so unpleasant to listen to, I found myself checking to see how much time was remaining for Melanie's POV and hoping to hear Jason again.
I loved Greyson and his possessive and devoted behavior. I tried to get past Melanie's voice and actually enjoy Melanie's POV, but it was difficult. All the scenes where Greyson and Melanie interacted and the sex scenes were hot! I think my favorite part was when Melanie awoke from her coma.
Jason Carpenter was great. ANYONE other than Shayna Thibodeaux. Although my favorite male narrator is Sebastian York, when I see he's one of the narrators, I almost purchase the book without reading the reviews!
Anxiously await for the 4th book, "Ripped" which will be Pandora's story. I hope we get to see more of Brooke, Remy, Melanie and Greyson.
I absolutely love the REAL series! Remy and Brooke's story was so touching and wonderful. I fell in love with Remy...and of course with Sebastian York as the narrator, how could you keep from falling in love with Remy!
I came very close many times during the story to take other reviewers advice and stop listening and purchase "Rogue" on my Kindle, just to escape Shayna Thibodeaux, but I stuck it out to the end!
"Female Narrator just bored me too death - too bad"
The story needs some more background interests and storylines
Yes but that was the reason I purchased this one I did have the previous ones and loved them
If the male narrator told the whole story! The female narrator killed it for me she seemed to be always going 200miles per hour no difference in the storylines
I was really disappointed since the previous books were so much better.
"Mel Got her very own Remy.."
Drama, Sweet and Sexy with a capitol S
Grayson because he was similar to Remy and you knew that he always had a good reason for what he was doing..
Grayson and I did Like Mel as well..
When he admitted to watching her for so long and saying I don't care how many people you have been with you're mine.
To really get a feel for this book I would suggest starting from book one which was real, mine, Remy.. then read this one so that you understand why Ms. Evans didn't talk about Remy and Brook so to much. it picks up a month before Remy and B get married but if you read Remy you know that book ended right after they got married.. I am looking forward to reading about Pandora's story.
"Horrible narration! Story was Ok though..."
Horrible narration! Jason Carpenter was ok but Shayna Thibodeaux wad horrible! Totally ruined what could have been a good story. I would read other books by Katy Evans but not if Shayna Thibodeaux is the narrator. I was just too annoyed.
Greyson, of course.
Shayna Thibodeaux did give any feeling where it needed it. I couldn't get into the story very well because the voice and the way she read just did not match the characters or the mood. I rarely ever leave reviews but was too put off not to. Hopefully the people in charge of picking narrators for audio books read these reviews and chooses better in the future.
"Dark, Hot & Deliciously Bad....Loved It!!"
Rogue was all kinds of yummy fantasticalness!! I've officially added Grayson King to my list of the "hottest and baddest of bad boy book boyfriends". If you've read Remy, Mine & Real, wait 'til you get a gander at Grayson! This story of his and Melanie's love affair was dramatic, intense and sexual, with a touch of suspense. The banter between these two was witty and sarcastic, but endearing as they both tried to keep from being to vulnerable. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of Shayna Thibodeaux's narration, it's like listening to a poorly delivered spoken word/poetry session--not my cup of tea for 7-9 hours. The saving grace was the male narrator and the overall storyline. Grayson was definitely the gritty dark version of prince charming, and he will rock your world! I highly recommend this book, and would spend a credit on it in a heartbeat.
"Can't finish, horrible narration"
I got 4 hrs into it and just couldn't take anymore. The female narration is horrible! All I imagine is someone standing there reading it to me. She talks fast and breathy, it's so annoying. I can't get in to the story at all. Very disappointed. I'm returning this and buying the book. I love Katy Evans but not this narration! I don't know why they didn't use the other ones from the previous 3 books.
"takes a minute to get used to the reader"
took a minute to get used to the reader but, still well read. I enjoyed it
I love this book. I love this whole series. I cant wait for the next book.
"The king and the princess .."
This series just gets better! Melanie and Grayson's story is heartbreaking and sad .. sexy, HOT, tender and inspiring !! A fabulous audiobook you wish you could listen to in one sitting ! Brilliant talented narrators perfect for the characters. What more could you want 😀
