Ripped is a fun and entertaining read all about the rock star life. Rock stars who are best friends, love triangle scenarios occurring in a lifestyle of fame and paparazzi as well as dramatic angst. This was my first read by this author, and it’s also the first book in a series by this author.

The main themes in this book are love and loyalty. Gemma, Kyle, and Hunter have been friends for years; from meeting in school and growing up together and turning their incredible musical talent into a inte

Freaking. Amazing. If you didn’t get it Everhide, freaking rock, and I don’t mean just musically. But this story was so. Freaking. Amazing. Tania has blown this series starter out of the water. I’m not normally a fan of rock romance stories, I find them corny, out of this world and unrealistic, but Ripped was so real, life like... like I expect to find their music in the current aria charts.

Lets start with the cover of this book, he is so lickable, that I did not even read the blurb of what this book was about before agreeing to read it.

That being said, I had no idea when I started reading that not only was the book about a band, I am a sucker for rock star books, but that there would also be a huge love triangle story.

Gemma, Hunter and Kyle make up Everhide and have been friends forever, but Gemma is ready to cross that line with Hunter (she has been having xrated dreams about hi

5 Captivating Stars!

Ripped is a fantastic start to this new series by Tania Joyce. It was a quick and easy read, which I devoured in one sitting. I loved the story-line and the characters. They had a very real quality to them and were easy to connect with. I loved the angst, the romance, the drama and all the secrets and lies. It made me laugh. It frustrated me at times. It made me swoon and fall in love. This book hit all the marks for me for a good rock star romance.

Urgh this was so good! But......
I wasn’t happy at first when Gemma was with Hunter, it was all sorts of wrong, the author got it spot on!
It all became right thank goodness, with a few bumps in the road, really enjoyed reading this book, looks as though there maybe more to come. I’d love to read Hunters story!

This is the first book in the Everhide Rockstar Romance Series and starts the series off on a high note. This is the story of three best friends Gemma, Kyle and Hunter who all play in a world famous rock band together. An emotional roller coaster as the three friends have mixed feelings for each other. Gemma has a crush on Kyle, but Hunter loves Gemma. Can you see where things might get a little tense at times. Drama and twisted signals make for some up and down times.

I loved this book and the songs are amazing! Gemma, Hunter, and Kyle are best friends that are in the band “Everhide”. Hunter asked Gemma out after a accident where Hunter caused. They weren’t the perfect match and so glad they broke up. Kyle who always loved Gemma was heartbroken when Hunter and Gemma started to date.

An easy summer read!

Ripped is the story of a sexy rockstar love triangle between the band Everhide - Gemma, Hunter and Kyle. There are plenty of ups and downs to keep the reader interested and I enjoyed how the characters and story progressed throughout.

My only issue was how predictable I found everything. I honestly think I figured out every 'twist' before it happened which was a shame. Maybe it's because I read too much romance it's hard to suprise me any more!!

I would have liked a few more

I enjoyed this book by Tania Joyce about her characters' search for acceptance, happiness, and of course love, but, OMG does she ever put them through an emotional roller coaster of trials and tribulations during their search. However, I think one of the things I liked reading, even more than the hot sexual escapades, were the song lyrics that so expressed the true emotional and heartfelt feelings behind the characters, even though they might lie to themselves and others face-to-face.

Ripped is a fun read about rock stars. Rock stars who have a best friend, love triangle situation happening on top of a heap of fame and papparazzi. This was the first time I read this author, and the first book in a series by this author.

I liked this book and enjoyed reading it. I thought the characters were memorable and had plenty of personality. It was heartwarming to read about the commitment and loyalty the main characters had for one another. It was a little confusing at times to figure out whose point of view I was reading about. This story is about the genuine feelings of confusion, attraction and love among our trio of characters. Gemma, Kyle and Hunter, went to school together and grew up together.

This book literally ripped my heart in teeny tiny pieces just to put them back together oh so slowly.

‘Ripped’ is a book about friendship, true love, crushes, music, passions, loyalty, love triangles and heartache.
Tania manages to make the reader feel each and every emotion listed above at the maximum of the strength, while also teaching life lessons and showing how the reality you have around can start to crumble and fade as if it was made of smoke.

Not only is this the start of a brand new series but the author is a new find for me.

Kyle, Gemma and Hunter are best friends who make up the rock band Everhide. When Gemma starts having erotic dreams about Hunter everything changes. The situation is complicated, Kyle loves Gemma who wants Hunter who is not a one woman kind of man.

The relationship between the three friends is a major focus of the book. We get a ringside seat to all the ups and downs that come from being in a

I love rock star romance stories, they are usually hot, sexy and always have a great alpha male lead so I was really excited to find a new series and by an author that was new to me. Ripped was an amazing example of a rock star romance. I loved every second of every work that I read! The authors’ writing was phenomenal – I was completely and utterly 100% hooked!!

Ripped by Tania Joyce is a rockstar romance with twists and turns that will keep you engaged. The three main characters are well-defined, and their story is both edgy and genuine. Gemma, Kyle and Hunter are best friends and bandmates. They are Everhide, a rock band with heart. Gemma believes she is in love with Hunter, while Kyle is definitely in love with Gemma. Hunter is a player, yet he finds love with a woman who only wants him for sex. This is the first book from the author's Pric

So I really wanted to like to this book but it seriously fell flat for me. I didnt like Gemma at all. She was so conflicted all the time. Oh no she had feelings for both guys but don't want overstep the friendships. I get that but when she gets with one of them, she makes excuses for why they can't be together in public. She also gets mad when Kyle pretends to lie and has to linger on about that. She just wasn't a character I liked. She had some issues. Kyle and Hunter I liked for the most part. ...more

Not bad for a debut but the story lacked chemistry and tension. Most of this was due to the telling of too many emotions (instead of showing and allowing the readers to drawn their own conclusions about circumstances.) The dialogue felt forced at times and the characters had no real hurdles in their journeys. It wasn’t enough to put me off the writer but I do hope she invests in a proper developmental edit in the future.
