From the author of Ricochet and Backfire comes a dark erotic suspense serial ...

Episode One: Dylan will do anything to escape her current nightmare, even if it means falling into the tangled web of a ruthless killer.

Series Synopsis:


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

I definitely found another anti-hero to root for in Ripple Effect, the new series by non-other-than Keri Lake. Ripley is a psychopath, a ruthless, menacing man and you wish you were dead if you actually meet him. I need to actually get my head check that I find his skill and personality - charismatic. Thinking about him just make shiver run down my spine, in a good way. 

Honestly, with the numbers of scary anti-heroes I've met, the things Ripley did here isn't something I've never seen. I guess I've read too much and sorta immune to violence and gore. If you are new to this, maybe don't eat your lunch while reading. 

The heroine, Dylan is a feisty little thing. She's young and vulnerable, might be a tad naive and inexperience, but she is a tough nut and a fighter. Despite her age, she's not someone to be underestimate. I like that her character had a good balance between strong and weakness. 

The entire read is filled with suspense and intrigued. I guarantee you are gonna got hook right from the first page till the last and dying for the next one. 

This is a serial with four episodes, but fear not for the cliffhangers as each subsequent episode will be release in a week succession. I have all four with me right now and I'm gonna devour it asap, while feeling guilty for not savoring it slowly.
