The fifth book in the New York Times new adult series that began with Real. When an angry, heartbroken girl is forced to be near her rocker ex-boyfriend, only time will tell if the fire between them will consume them both.
Pandora, the gothic friend of Brooke (Real, Mine, Remy) and Melanie, thought that getting her heart broken by her bad boy rocker ex could only happen once. But now, he's back in town with the biggest concert of the year. Pandora hates him so much that she gets Melanie to come with her and play a prank on him at his gig. But when they are caught by security, and her ex himself is summoned, he decides not to press charges if she'll follow certain conditions. Pandora likes none of his rules, or that he's in charge of her, especially since they seem designed to make sure she's in close contact with him again. But the closeness reignites the passion they once shared, and soon no matter how much she wants to hate him, it's clear she's still hung up on him. And worse: he knows it too.
While I enjoyed this book, I don’t think it was as good as the first four. I guess Remy spoiled the series for me. I mean don’t get me wrong. This was a great read, but to me it didn’t hold my attention as well as the previous books. I didn’t get that “I can’t put it down” feeling.
Pandora is an odd duck. I’ve always felt she was the weird friend. It isn’t that I didn’t like her, because I did. She’s just different. Her and Kenna go way back. Back in high school they were a thing until he abruptly left.
I think the chemistry between them was strong. The sex was hot which is pretty common for all of Katy Evans’ books. The characters really scorch up the sheets. Frequently.
In the end, I was happy with how things turned out for these two. I’m looking forward to reading more books in this series. It’s one of my favorites.
