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.
So, it was amazing as I knew it would be. I still love Greyson more, but this book. WOW. It was beautiful and heart breaking. I was so excited when we learned we would get a Pandora book and to find out why she was the man eater she was. Mackenna was her first for everything. They were young, dumb and in love. But something kept them apart, both thinking the other left them. Years later her and Melanie crash one of their concerts and she ends up getting a offer she cannot refuse. So she goes on tour with the band. The two try to make each others life hell, but they only realize that they still love each other, but both are hurt and Pandora finds it hard to forgive and forget, she feels they can never be more than friends with benefits. But the more the book goes on, they both find that hard to resist. Can the two stay away from each other? or can they over come their pasts and work to a future? you will have to read to find out. But let me tell you this, Katy delivers yet another book acclaim. It was perfect in every way and broke my heart many times. I truly hope there is another so we can see if these two get what they are searching for. You will know what I am talking about when you read the book ;-) worth the read, as is everything Katy writes. It was also very enjoyable seeing out favorite characters come back Brooke, Remy, Melanie, Greyson, their interactions were wonderful and I loved every second and I have no doubt all of you won`t love it also.
``You`re mine. I claim you. I love you. You`re mine.``
I first fell in love with hot, protective, bi-polar and big-muscled boxer, Remy, and his sweet girl, Brooke, in Real, Mine, and Remy. Then dirty-talking pure alpha bad boy Greyson sucked me on page 1 with his sexy tongue in Rogue...and his girl who's blonde, bubbly, and BFF of Brooke...Melanie. And...finally... Ripped brought hot and sweet rocker Mackenna (Kenna) and his punkish and pretty spitfire of a girl, Pandora. This series rocked the emotions out of me and panties off of me that I can't even say what book or character of the Real series I like best...they are all that freaking ah-ma-zing!
Keeping with the Real series, Ripped is raw, intense, sassy, hot, funny, and emotional. Like Rogue, Ripped alternates between points of views so you get inside the main characters' heads and really feel them...all romance/erotic books should be written this way! The chapter titles are spot-on and humorous.
Pandora is the mysterious 'glass half empty' goth girl who almost hates men, in the BFF circle of Brooke (Real) and Melanie (Rogue). With her quick wit and mostly negative comments, it's as if she wears a mask to hide the pain of a broken heart as shown in the first few books of the series. Well her heart was broken forever ago by her childhood best friend and boyfriend. Oh this former boyfriend now happens to be one of the hottest rock stars on the planet, Mackenna Jones.
Their teenage relationship was broken by a tragic family incident that caused MacKenna to leave.
"Once, her mother told me I wasn't good enough for her. I vowed to her that in a few years I was going to be good enough for any woman's daughter...especially hers."
Six years later, fate, lost love, and revenge bring this couple together again at one of Mackenna's concerts...where Pandora goes there for revenge...to cause Mackenna pain for abandoning her when she needed him the most.
Hot and humorous words like this sucked me in and I didn't want to leave this happy book bubble:
"He leans over and whispers in my ear. 'Next time you give me a tomato bath, I'm going to make you give me a tongue bath and clean up your mess.' He strokes the pink in my hair. 'Fair warning.' "
The love-hate relationship between this couple was downright amusing---from the childhood flashbacks to the hot quotes to the funny insults:
"I grit my teeth, knowing that once there was a girl inside me who believed one day she'd marry him. But the only girl left now is an angry one, the one he hurt, and she grits out, 'You'll never have me again.'
'Your lips say one thing but the rest of you screams the opposite.'
'You do,' he says. 'And I do.' He stands again, comes over and leans forward. 'You hate it, but right now--knowing how much you hate the way you want me--it's making me high.' "
Their roller coaster of a relationship is put to the test when Pandora is offered a part as MacKenna's ex and possible love interest in a reality-type movie the band is filming.
The book made me giggle with lines like these:
"I gather my girl-balls and march toward the coach. He's going to complain about it all the time? Fine. I'm being paid to give them a couple of shots. Hell, maybe one of them can be of my boot in his nuts. He's right to be fearful."
Ripped seriously ripped at my heart...made it pump with a mix of emotions...happiness, frustration, anger, laughter, and sadness.
This series is one of my all-time favorites that will stay in my mind and heart forever. I am in tears that Real-Rogue-Ripped -- these ridiculously touching R books -- are over! I still want MORE, and will nurse a book hangover for some time.
Please, Katy, give us a final novella...maybe an update up to five years so we can see marriage, family, and more. I'll beg if needed as I'm so not ready to let go of this fan-freaking-tastic series.
5 soul-wrenching and sexy stars!
