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.
Five Thrilling Stars! This is the fourth episode in the Ripple Effect Series and should be read in order to fully understand the story. We pick up where we left off in Episode three with Dylan and Ripley. They are tested emotionally and physically and Dylan is forced to confront her past. Ripley is willing to do anything to protect Dylan. This is a dark, romantic, suspense novel that will grab your attention from the first chapter and not let go until the end! I loved the connection between Dylan and Ripley and found the book to be well written. Ripley was a true bad boy and dangerous killer. Dylan had been through a lot at a young age and her connection to Riley was all-consuming. I found this story to be a thrilling roller coaster ride with plenty of twist and turns. This book will truly stay with me for a long time to come! This story may contain triggers for some people so read with caution. The conclusion of a book is sad to see but the author definitely did an amazing job for this series! I highly recommend this story and can’t wait to see what Ms. Lake will do next!
