AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Ripped (Real #5) by Katy Evans



A ripped rock star with attitude. An ex-girlfriend with a reckless plan.

Pandora assumed getting her heartbroken by her bad boy ex could only happen once–until Mackenna Jones comes back to town for the biggest concert of his career. They say girls are getting pregnant just thinking about the Crack Bikini tour and it’s destined to be a huge hit.

Oh, it’ll be a hit alright–when Pandora comes out swinging. She and her friend Melanie are determined to humiliate him onstage. But when they’re caught by security and her ex is summoned, Mackenna decides not to press charges if she’ll join him on tour and follow certain conditions–rules designed to give him the upper hand and keep her in close contact with him once again. Soon, the passion they once shared is reignited, and no matter how much Pandora wants to hate him, her hard exterior starts to crack.

And worse: Mackenna knows it, too. But he hasn’t uncovered all her secrets…




I totally love this book, and listening to the audiobook was a blast for me. It meant i could re-read the book, listen to Sebastian York – sigh – and fall in love with Mackenna all over again. Sebastian York is my favorite narrator ever, and his voice was perfect for Mackenna, smooth and sexy – gimme more please – Sebastian narrated perfectly the few chapters from Mackenna’s POV – yeah, because there was so little of him, i want more – I loved every chapter with Sebastian, not only because I learned more about Mackenna, but also because Sebastian’s narration showed more of the story than when I read it for the first time. Elizabeth Louise was amazing too. At first I was thinking she wasn’t getting into Pandora’s bad mood, but then, as the story was happening, Elizabeth’s sweet voice was perfect for Pandora’s vulnerability, because all the toughness and hardness and badassness of Pandora was just a mask, she was broken in the inside and only Mackenna’s love could bring that beautiful woman to the surface again.

Amazing audiobook. Amazing book. Amazing love story with a perfect HEA.

BTW: I still want to know if Pandora and Mackenna will ever…. – I’ll stop, that’s a spoiler *chuckles* – And… I kept seeing Jared Leto as Mackenna while listening to the audiobook, just as I said my book review.
