Ripple Effect: Episode 1 (Ripple Effect #1) by Keri Lake



They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.


For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.

*This is an erotic suspense/erotic romance not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence and sex.

4 out of 5 stars

A fantastic dark read! I loved it!

Ripley is a complete badass. An enforcer that knows how to get information out of anyone. He even kills people that are at the wrong place at the wrong time. The only exception is Dylan. He lets her walk out alive after witnessing a bloody job.

Dylan is living on the streets to escape abuse. Being addicted to drugs isn't helping her at all. So when she runs low on cash, she decides to take a dangerous risk.

The story is a quick read, and it ends with an exciting cliffhanger. I loved Dylan and Ripley. Ripley has an unexplainable curiosity with Dylan. And Dylan is completely reckless and ballsy. The plot is also amazing! I'm going to dive into episode 2 now!
