Every woman wants me--except the one I sing for.

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.

That's alright.

Let her come at me. Because I'm out for her heart and, this time, there's no way she can

stop me.

Review of Ripped
Ripped (Real, #5)Ripped by Katy Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Good books don't give up all their secrets at once” – Stephen King. This quote holds true for Katy Evans latest installment in the Real series. Katy delivered another brilliant book, with a fresh out of the box story that moves away from the MMA fighting world and goes straight for the heart of rock and roll.

We first met Pandora, a friend of Brooke and Melanie in Real (Book #1). Pandora has always been dark, jaded and angry at the world.  We finally learn about the broken girl with a perpetual snarl on her face and who put that snarl there.

“Black hair, black boots, a bad attitude, that's her -- Pandora Stone is a freaking man-eater and she's out for my blood.”

Mackenna gave Pandora a promise ring and then made plans for their future together.  Then she never heard from him again.  He left her, and the only time she heard his voice again was on the radio singing a chart-topping song. Years go by, and Pandora goes from heartbroken to angry. Mackenna’s band is coming into town, and Pandora hatches a plan to make sure he knows how she feels…in front of thousands of fans. Her plan didn’t work out the way she planned, and she is face-to-face with the man that tore out her heart. McKenna wants his witchy bitchy dark haired girl back. Will Pandora be able to let go of the past?    They were cheated out of a future together and ripped apart.  Can everything that is Ripped be fixed?

I wasn’t sure I really liked Pandora in the first 50% of Ripped. Pandora’s raw negativity was so intense. There were times that I felt so frustrated by her and then “Pandora’s box” was opened.  The young couple's tragic and heart breaking story finally made sense.  Once again, Katy Evans delivered a memorable story filled with raw and real emotion.  This second chance rock and roll love story can be read as a standalone.  To fully understand each character's background, you might benefit from reading Real, Mine & Rogue. Go one-click this one…you will not be disappointed.
