Ripped (REAL, #5) by Katy Evans

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.

4 Mackenna Stars
I love this series. I know there are a lot of negative reviews towards the Real series. I get it, many thought it ended and why do spin-offs? Well, I love additional characters. I love reading not only new characters, but different ones.
Now, it’s the sexy rocker and his name is Mackenna.
6 Years ago Pandora and Mackenna had a crazy relationship. They took each other’s virginity and swore to runaway together.
Of course that didn’t happen.
And it’s years later and Pandora is still angry. Mackenna is now a famous sexy rocker and his band is in town.
Pandora is going to the concert …. For revenge.
I get Pandora’s anger.   Mackenna and Pandora had a plan. They would met up and go off to the sunset together, but Mackenna never shows up. I feel for Pandora. I would be angry too. He took her V card! So she wants to show up at the concert and she does, but when she leaves, she leaves signing a contract.  She now is going to star in a reality movie with Mackenna.
Crazy right? I really like the plot.
I will be honest, Mackenna isn’t my favorite Hero.  He plays for a band called Crack Bikini (I know I cringed a little too), he smokes e-cigarettes, wears make-up and wears wigs. I had to look past the superficial stuff to get into him.  Mackenna is very complex, his dad was into drugs and even though Mackenna is super rich and famous, he still feels like a shell.
I liked Pandora and Mackenna’s bickering. Both hate each other and the banter is very comical and adds juiciness to the storyline. Despite the hate, they both are very attracted to each other still, so you can imagine the steamy scenes.
I liked when Pandora and Mackenna get more into the past and we start to piece some of it together. You get a little bit of both sides.  A lot is revealed.  Both characters did frustrate me at some points, but it added some nice tension.
If you are a fan of the series, you will like this one.
