I can't believe what you do to my whoremones... Women, don't walk, RUN to get your your hands on this masterpiece. It's 1st love, 2nd chance love, rocker romance, backstage drama, fun friendships, painful pasts, magical music, leather, sweat, glitter, pink hair, to-do lists, tattoo trivia, secrets and sorrow. Start reading early, or you will get no sleep, because you will be unable to put it down. When you do put it down, you won't be able to stop replaying it in your mind. Go ahead and order the paperback, this one is a keeper, you'll want to get it autographed for your 'special' collection. Katy Evans has a spectacular gift, she can master words in such a way that they reach into your heart and touch places that you didn't know you had. She creates visual images to go with her words, it's almost like a memory, like you are experiencing the scenes yourself. And she teases you with glimpses, ideas, suggestions...enough to make you hope for and anticipate a particular outcome...and then you strain towards it, turning pages, holding your breath...until finally...sigh. "There are people who have an effect on your life. And then there are people who become your life".

It was an OK read but nowhere near the passionate and solid storyline of Remy and Brooke's books. I just got tired of so much hate from Pandora and the lack of communication between her and Kenna. At some point it became too unrealistic and boring. These two characters were young and behaved even younger. The plot was weak if not missing all together. And I agree with other reviewers that the end could have been made differently to add some more resolution. So in the end I give it three (very generous) stars.

The story grabbed me right from the start. Laughter, frustration, tears and of course steamy scenes. I love this entire series. This is definitely one of my favorite authors.

Ripped is another totally amazing book by author Katy Evans. I could not stop reading this book, so make sure you have plenty of reading time when you start. The story of Pandorah and MacKenna will make you laugh, and cry, not to mention the super hot overwhelming sexual chemistry that these two have. Katy Evans story about one angry sexy goth girl and one hot Alpha Rocker who's first love has somehow changed to hate, Rips you apart right up to the very end. I Loved it! Ripped can be read alone, but the previous books in this series are so amazing too, that I would recommend that you read them all.

If I could I would give this book thousands of stars! It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!! I loved Kenna and Pan! Half of this book Pan is angry mess, she wants to make Kenna pay. But after first half everything changed. Pan fell into Kenna's arms. In the end I cried so much! It was very emotional book. One more time I LOVED THIS BOOK like all The Real series books! P.S I hope that we would get second book about Pan's little secret :)

When Mackenna Jones the lead singer of Crack Bikini comes back in his hometown of Seattle not everyone is happy to see him; namely his wronged ex-girlfriend, Pandora.  The two are reunited in an emotional journey that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Pandora is an intriguing heroine.  She has guts for confronting Mackenna and taking up the challenge of the tour.  Her mother is a piece of work.  Making me appreciate Pandora all the more.    I really like Mackenna.  He had a rough childhood yet made a success out of his life.   The chemistry between Mackenna and Pandora is intense.  They have a great story and deserve a second chance. I highly suggest starting this book when you have a lot of time to read.  This is one of those books that kept me sleep deprived because I started reading it late and then could not put it down.  Oh well, sleep is over rated anyway. This is the first book I have read by Katy Evans.  Yes, I read the series out of order, but I had no problem reading Ripped as a stand-alone.  That being said, I love Katy Evans’ writing style.  Ripped has so much emotion it is impossible not to be affected by it.

I loved getting to peel back all the layers to Pandora. She is this amazing friend to Brooke and Melanie but she keeps herself separate somehow. She struggles to truly open up and feel like she fits in. As the story begins, she goes to a concert and throws tomatoes at the lead singer, McKenna, the guy that broke her heart and then wrote songs about it. This sends Pandora on a crazy road trip with the band as they film their tour and the manager has the fabulous idea to reveal Pandora at their big show in Madison Square Garden. Now the struggle is how to stay away from McKenna because, even though he broke her heart, he still owned it. McKenna can’t believe Pandora just walked back into his life. There is a lot to what happened when they were teenagers and it was wonderful when they finally put all the hurt aside and opened up about what they both went through. But, Pandora has always been told her whole life that she doesn’t matter by her mother, can she overcome these feelings and truly let love back into her life? What an incredible journey. Pandora is an amazing woman with incredible strength to have endured everything she did. I love her feistiness and willingness to push boundaries. I also loved being back in the “Real” world with all of these amazing characters.

This is fast becoming one of my favorite series. I thought I wasn't going to be interested in any character other than Remy but Katy Evans writes amazing stories & characters you can't help falling in love with. We knew from previous books that Pandora pretty much despises men and let me tell you that her & Mackenna's story is a doozie! After years & years apart Pandora is ready to humiliate Kenna to teach him a lesson. BUUTTT once she gets the offer of a lifetime she's forced to spend time with her ex. I liked their chemistry & the fact that Pandora gave as good as she got and vice versa. It's also nice to read a character who doesn't just fall back into a man's arms after a few hours or even days . Katy Evans very sneakily drops a bombshell towards the end that I never saw coming. I truly hope these two get another book. Their story has so much potential & I don't want it to end here. I can't wait to find out who book 6 is about!! - How can you stop belonging to someone who has ravaged you like he did me? How can your first & only love sweep through you like a tornado and not leave his mark?

I am so in love with this series. I am also a huge fan of Katy Evans. She has become the author that I buy all of her books and pre-order as soon as they are available. This is the 5th book in the Real Series. This is Pandora's story. Pandora and Kenna met in high school and were both going through horrible heartbreak, they became each others rock. The safe place for each to fall when it was all too much. Kenna had to make an extremely difficult decision and he left Pandora behind. Pandora became a woman without a heart, she was a bad ass chick with no emotions. She has 3 friends that accept her as she is (we met them in previous books in the series). Pandora is given an opportunity to let Kenna know how much she hates him and so the story goes. I loved it. I loved finally finding out what has made Pandora the woman that she is. I won't spoil anymore of the book I will just say that is a one that I couldn't put down. I loved it all, every minute. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Bring it on Katy Evans !!!!!!!!!

I am not quite sure how to rate this book. The beginning was slow for me and didn't capture my interest like Real and Remy did. I found myself skimming through the first half of the book to get on with the story. I guess I felt the same way I did about Mine...just not enough until the last part of the book where the story picked up. Would have given it 3.5 but since the storyline got better I will give it a 4. I did love seeing the characters from the previous books again.

WOW, KATY EVANS 5-STAR NOVEL WILL LEAVE YOUR PANTIES DAMPEN & YOUR HEART RIPPED – ‘ONE-CLICK’ TODAY! RIPPED is the story of Pandora Stone and MacKenna Jones. As the story begins, Pandora drags her best friend, Melanie, to a rock concert armed with eggs and tomatoes. Pandora is on a mission to humiliate the lead singer of Crack Bikini, Kenna, for breaking her heart and singing about it.  "He was my first love and my first everything, including my first heartbreak.” Kenna promised they would have a future together, but Pandora never heard from Kenna after he failed to meet her one evening.   "I was seventeen and he was my everything, and when he took me, I thought he wanted everything I had to give. He left anyway. Bastard.” Six years has pass since she has seen Kenna, now he is on the radio singing a song about her – “Pandora’s Kiss.” Pandora is now even more heartbroken and angry when she finds out the band is coming to town. Pandora has her best friend, Melanie, and a plan, but when her plan is botched, she finds herself face-to-face with the very man whom broke her heart – Kenna.  “He’s been the most powerful source of pain in my life, and my survival instinct rears up stronger than ever when he’s near. Every part of him is a threat-his voice, his kiss, our past, my own heart.” Kenna is a Rock God with a filthy mouth. He is tall and dark in leather pants molded to every muscle below his waist with silver eyes that look like a wolf on the prowl whom makes no apologies to anyone.  "I like bad things— booze, threesomes, orgies, smoking. But the baddest thing I’ve ever wanted is Pandora." Kenna’s manager, Lionel, finds out the band’s number one hit song, “Pandora’s Kiss,” is about a real person in Kenna’s life. Wanting to capitalize on their past relationship, Kenna’s manager strikes a deal with Pandora and Kenna. Pandora and Kenna had many mixed emotions about each other and their banter was amusing, but they could not deny their physical attraction to each other.  “Black hair, black boots, a bad attitude, that's her -- Pandora Stone is a freaking man-eater and she's out for my blood.” Even after all these years, Kenna decides he wants Pandora back even though he has been through heart break and tears too. “I choose not to live without you anymore!” Even though Pandora and Kenna move into a physical relationship quickly, Pandora is having difficulties letting her guard down around her heart.  “I had your heart once, Pink, and it wasn’t enough. I have your body now, but it’s not enough .” He holds my face in order to force my eyes to stay on his as he demands, “I want your mind, your dreams, your hopes, your fucking soul. I want it all." Pandora and Kenna also truly did not know each will enough to each other’s’ story of their life. Will Pandora be able to rip Kenna’s heart from his chest, so he can feel the same heartache she felt when he left many years ago? Will true love be able to mend ripped hearts that should have never been broken or shattered? "To second chances, especially the chance to do it right." Katy Evans has me on holding on to my damn tissue box with dampen panties on a roller coaster ride of emotions of FRIENDSHIP, JEALOUSY, HEARTACHE, ANGER, DISCOVERY, FORGIVENESS, LAUGHTER, and LOVE.  "There are people who have an effect on your life. And then there are people who become your life." Katy Evans’ fifth novel in the Real series, RIPPED, receives - 5 ROCKING STARS!

I think I need to start by saying that words cannot express how much I LOVED Remy and Brooke's three books and "Rouge", as well, so my expectations were HIGH. But I am disappointed in this one. I didn't even like Pan OR Kenna for the first half of the book. However, showing how good K. Evans is as a writer, I still couldn't put the book down and by the end I was SO invested in their reunion I cried when he said, "Now that was Pandora!" That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 3. I hope we get another book in this series and that we get results from P & K's "search" in that one. I would reccomend this book, but with the caveat that it's nowhere near as good as the first four books of the series.
