Ripple Effect by Keri Lake



Title: Ripple Effect
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 25, 2017


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.


Review by Candy:
Oh My God! That was a fantastic twisted tale.
Ripple effect: noun
1. a spreading effect or series of consequences caused by a single action or event
In the beginning of this tale you have a young Ripley and a glimpse into the man he will become…a killing machine. Then you have Dylan and what her life is like in the present day…crappy. Dylan’s life becomes a chaos of events where she runs with her dog and foster sister. The one night she works the streets turns out bad but she meets the one person she has fantasized a bout Ripley. Witnessing what he has done she doesn’t fear him and he lets her go, not what he usually does. Her dog and sister are gone without a trace but she finds out her dog is at animal control but doesn’t have the money to get her out. This is where Ripley comes into play again for Dylan but the stakes change this time, deals are made and consequences will come what may. But will everything change for Dylan staying with Ripley or vice versa?
Keri you have done an awesome job with this tale. You have the underbelly of crime and secret organizations playing roulette and we get to see if Ripley and Dylan come out of it on top or alive. Your writing flows and the characters point of views let us see what the other doesn’t. This is definitely a must read novel. thank you for putting it together in one read. This is a kind of love story but it has very dark moments that may not be one’s cup of tea so you have been warned. Keri, I will look forward to reading more from you. 5 Stars!
