Ripple Effect: A Novel (Ripple Effect, #1-4) by Keri Lake


What happens when a ruthless killer with no conscience takes in an irresistible young drug addict on the run from dangerous men?


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.

4 out of 5 stars

Ripple Effect is dark, twisted, and full of suspense. I couldn't put this down.

Dylan may be a young girl, but she is smart and experienced in life. Everyday is a struggle. With drugs and abusive adults in every corner, she can't escape. She can never escape.

The only time she drifts off and dreams of a different life is when she looks at a man below her window. A mysterious man facing her from a diner.

Ripley is skilled in many areas. Torturing. Killing. He can't show any weaknesses... but Dylan becomes his addiction.

The attraction between them is dark and painful. This is a must read! I hope that there will be some spin-offs. Bravo Keri Lake!
