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.
Let her come at me. Because I'm out for her heart and, this time, there's no way she can stop me.
Pandora Stone doesn’t believe in love anymore. She thought she did once long ago when she was just seventeen. There was a boy who saved her in everyway possible and then he disappeared taking her heart with him.
All she can think about is hurting him as much as he hurt her. So when his band, Crack Bikini plays Seattle she’s going to be there and she’s going to make sure to give him something that he’ll never forget.
“As far as I was concerned, he was it for me, and I for him.
Mackenna Jones never forgot the girl he fell in love with. He poured all of his pain into his music and it’s made him a famous rock star. He has the world at his feet but all he really wants is her.
Now he has to show Pandora that they can overcome the heartache of the past and share a future together. Just as they always dreamed that they would.
“You’re a world of contrasts, aren’t you?” The words are spoken reverently as he eases his fingers into my hair. We’re in our own little world. Rock music plays in the background.
Ripped is another amazing departure for Katy Evans! The intense passion and longing that have become her trademark are still there but she delivers them in a whole new way – through the eyes of a raging and yet vulnerable girl - Pandora Stone.
For all of her anger, Pandora is such a unique paradox and to experience her falling in love all over again was beautifully painful. And Mackenna Jones is the perfect bad boy to steal her heart with his raw sensuality and seductive honesty.
It’s heartbreaking, maddening and more than a little naughty perfection…
