A ripped rock star with attitude. An ex-girlfriend with a reckless plan.

Pandora assumed getting her heart broken by her bad boy ex could only happen once–until Mackenna Jones comes back to town for the biggest concert of his career. They say girls are getting pregnant just thinking about the Crack Bikini tour and it’s destined to be a huge hit.

Oh, it’ll be a hit alright–when Pandora comes out swinging. She and her friend Melanie are determined to humiliate him onstage. But when they’re caught by security and her ex is summoned, Mackenna decides not to press charges if she’ll join him on tour and follow certain conditions–rules designed to give him the upper hand and keep her in close contact with him once again. Soon, the passion they once shared is reignited, and no matter how much Pandora wants to hate him, her hard exterior starts to crack.

And worse: Mackenna knows it, too. But even Mackenna doesn’t know everything…

my thoughts

Katy Evans is a master with her words. She always delivers with brilliant writing, amazing characters, and a storyline that captivates you from beginning to end. With her latest hit in the REAL series, RIPPED did just that! From the very first chapter I was transported into these characters lives, feeling their emotions, fighting their demons alongside them. I feel like I was at the concert right alongside Pandora, gazing up at a Rock God! It’s surreal, it’s magnetic, and it is amazing! It’s so very hard to express the amount of joy and emotion these types of books bring out of me. I get so giddy just thinking about it.

A young couple with a tortured past reunite in a hilarious and unconventional way. A rock star who came from nothing and the woman he left behind with no explanation. Who wouldn’t hold any grudges right? Pandora is out for blood. When she finds out the boy who tore her heart to shreds is coming to town, she plans her revenge. Her goal? His utter humiliation! But when her revenge leads to her being in close proximity to said heartbreaker, emotions and feelings, good and bad, come rushing back in full force!

Now, with a contract binding them, will they both be able to come out of this whole? Or will the walls that they both built throughout these years, become even stronger? He makes her reckless. She makes him crazy. Secrets keep them defensive and alone. These two strong-willed individuals are all wrong for one another, they continue to destroy, torment, and wreck each other’s hearts. This mash-up of a relationship is destined to fail, but the depth of their love for one another is something that can’t be denied. A woman went out looking for revenge, but ended up finding peace instead.

I can’t sing Ms. Evan’s praises enough. Over and over again, she gives us a love story to end all love stories. Brilliant, sexy, emotional, and gritty, RIPPED will leave you on the edge of your seat begging for a happily ever after.
