ARC REVIEW - Ripped (The Real Series #5) by Katy Evans

New Adult Contemporary
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release: December 9, 2014
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Indiebound

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.

About the Author
Katy Evans grew up with books and book-boyfriends until she found a real sexy boyfriend to love. They married and are now hard at work on their own happily ever after. Katy loves her family and friends, and she also loves reading, walking, baking, and being consumed by her characters until she reaches “The End.” Which is, hopefully, only the beginning…


I loved this book! I admit that I wasn't a fan of Pandora at the start of the book; she initially came across as a character who wanted to blame everyone else for whatever was wrong with her life, but as the story progressed, it became clear that the majority of Pan's issues start (and end) with her mother.

Now, maybe Pan's way of revenge wasn't the smartest plan, but it was definitely entertaining and set up the plot of the book. No matter how much Pan wants to avoid Kenna, it just ain't gonna happen, and that is more than fine with him, since she's still the only one who really gets him.

Even after 6 years apart, Kenna still knows all the hidden sides of Pan, which of course slowly break down the walls she's had up for the last few years. She put up a good fight, but the heart wants what it wants (like Selena Gomez's song!)

I sure wasn't expecting the bombshell Pan dropped and I thought for sure that Kenna would be done for good, but I was surprised by his decision; and when he met Mags, I too had the same thought that he did. But it was a good story with a good ending and I'm glad I got a chance to read this book!
