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.
Let her come at me. Because I’m out for her heart and, this time, there’s no way she can stop me.
Katy brings us Mackenna and Pandora in Ripped. Mackenna leaves Pandora at seventeen and leaves her heartbroken. Without ever seeing Mackenna again Pandora never gets over him. She never gets into another serious relationship. Leaving her broken with no answers Pandora goes right back into the shell she stayed under until Mackenna was there to help her through. With him gone Pandora feels more lost, and alone than ever.
Mackenna moves on becoming a huge Rockstar. It just so happens his band will be playing close, and Pandora decides revenge would be great after all these years, but her plan goes completely unplanned when she is made to deal with her biggest fear. Mackenna is something she had no intention of happening, but as fate would have it, or just horrible luck Pandora is face to face again with the only man she ever loved. The only man that ripped her heart out years ago.
Pandora is forced to work with Mackenna and a chain of events bring these two closer than ever. They fight it, but the attraction is still there. The heart wants, what the heart wants right? Not to mention Mackenna is a hot Rockstar! I loved Mackenna. He still loves Pandora and he loves it even more when she fights it. He is as stubborn as she is which make these two click. You can’t help but love their back and forth banter!
They are both harboring secrets that could risk tearing them apart for good this time. Secrets so big that even the love they have for each other might not be enough. You have to read to see exactly what those secrets are. I don’t want to give too much away and spoil it. Katy also brings us a few other characters we love go grab your copy of Ripped and meet these two!!
