Ripley 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 Ripley 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. Dylan 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.

    5 Stars!! Keri Lake continues to keep me at the edge of my seat with this third installment. The story is utterly addictive and, once again, filled with suspense and action. It’s dark, gritty, sexy, entertaining and I’ve read it in one sitting. “Tell me, Dylan.

The story is utterly addictive and, once again, filled with suspense and action. It’s dark, gritty, sexy, entertaining and I’ve read it in one sitting. “Tell me, Dylan. How does it make you feel knowing that I kill men, viciously and violently, but I haven’t killed you?” This third episode, like its predecessor, picks up right where the last one ends. Dylan and Ripley’s unconventional relationship continues. Both of them have changed since they have met. Dylan knows she should stay away from Ripple since he’s a killer and Rip loves testing her at every turn. As much as he wants to, Ripley can’t stay away from Dylan. Not anymore, not when she gets under his skin like no other. “A woman like that is dangerous for a man like me, but letting her go is no longer an option. I can’t decide if she’s a nightmare or a dream. All I know is that I want more of it. More of her. We find out more information about the two main characters’ pasts in this installment. Both Dylan and Ripley are [email protected] in an intriguing kind of way and both of their portrayals are fantastically written. Dylan is a smart, rebellious heroine I truly liked. As for Ripple…holy hotness…the man is dangerous and vabsolutely captivating. I loved this third installment. Everything is so well done and engaging. The story-line is entertaining, the characters are enthralling and the writing is simply fabulous. The relationship between the two main characters is wonderfully done. Their connection is raw and powerful. Once again, the sex scenes between these two are sexy as [email protected] “When he rocks into me, all I can do is feel. Feel everything. His hands on my hips that keep me in place. His eyes that hold me captive. His dick that pumps in and out of me so good, I want to cry. I feel the full weight of Ripley pressing into me, pushing me to the edge. I want to stay in this place forever.” All in all, this third installment is simply awesome - gripping, with a well-developed plot and engaging characters. If you love dark and twisted reads, you don’t want to miss this series. Trust me on this! Find me on:

Each episode is better than the last. This particular episode packed a punch with the steam and it delivered the romance that I have been patiently waiting for. In Episode Three, Rip and Dylan are getting to know each other on a much deeper level. Dylan and Rip are beginning to feel that that is more than just an undeniably hot attraction between them. They are becoming to mean a whole lot more to each other and it scares them both equally. They’re revealing things about themselves to each other which strengthens the bond between them. But Rip continues to warn Dylan that there is no possible way that they can have a future together. No matter how hard she tries to act as if her heart is not being broken by his words, Dylan can’t help but feel completely rejected by the man she is slowly starting to fall in love with. Dylan meets a woman from Rip’s past that only brings forth even more unanswered questions. And when Rip makes the mistake of showing how much Dylan means to him, it ends up putting her in a very precarious situation. Things are not looking good for Dylan by the time we get to the end of this episode but hopefully, love will conquer all and these two will ride off into the sunset together by the time we reach the conclusion in Episode Four. I can’t praise this series enough!! It’s freaking amazing!! Keri Lake is another author that I am happy to add to my automatic must read shelf now!

    Same cover as book one. See my thoughts on that review. Episode 3 kicks off right where we left off in book two. Dylan and Rip grow closer, and we learn a little more history about both of them. We also get to see a softer side of Rip. He is still batshit crazy, but Dylan brings out something in him. I love the relationship these two have. It's raw and filthy and powerful. The pacing of these novellas is fantastic. They suck you in from page one and don't let up until you are smacked in the face Same cover as book one. See my thoughts on that review.

I was convinced that they were starting to feel for each other. But, I was wrong. We are sooooo not there yet. A few new chess players have made their moves and this game is turning quite ugly. With the ending we have been left with, it might even be that Rip and Dylan are not even on the same side anymore. Has Dylan reached her breaking point?

I was completely surprised at some points. The story is very well written with steady and gradual development of their hot relationship, a pairing of an increasingly possessive male with a young-and-so-sexy girl used to running her own show and calling all the shots. The book ends on a huge cliffhanger and if you love romantic/erotic suspense novels, I highly recommend this series!

He also started to show more vulnerabilities and that made him even more lovable to me. A woman like that is dangerous for a man like me, but letting her go is no longer an option. Dylan as usual, tend to have a rebellious streak that thrown her into predicaments. But I did like how fearless she was even when she's acting irrationally. We’re fucked up— two wrongs that somehow make a right. Questions were answered in this episode and now it's up for the characters to make their moves. I'm betting for an explosive finale for this engaging series. Books in the series: ★ ♆ ★. . . (F)BR With Twinsie CC . . . ★ ♆ ★ For more reviews/reveals/giveaways visit:

Ripple Effect: Episode 3 is the third book in the Ripple Effect Series by Keri Lake, and once again I have been held captive by the addictive world of Rip and Dylan! "Had enough yet, Bandit?" Ripple Effect: Episode 3 picks up directly after Ripple Effect: Episode 2. Dylan and Ripley find themselves thrown together and the hypnotic blend of their physical connection only spurs an emotional one to continue to bloom and eventually explode! Ripley is torn as he has always kept himself isolated from love. Knowing that it is out of the question for him to get close to anyone because it would only put them in danger, he struggles with the feelings that are developing for his beautiful Bandit. Dylan is no stranger to the darkness that looms around her and yet, with Rip she feels safe. As more of Rip's past is revealed, the depth of their connection only grows. And just when you think they are safe, the ripple effect of their pasts collide with their present and threaten their future! "As long as you're mine, nothing touches you." Told in dual POV, Ripple Effect: Episode 3 is another stunning addition to this series. The text is colored with action and suspense and the explosive connection between Rip and Dylan continues to grow stronger with each installment. The well-constructed story arc is rich with complexities, and the characters are so unique due to their personal growth and life experiences. As each layer of the plot unfolds, I have more questions that I cannot wait to be answered. This gripping series is certainly NOT one to miss! Now on to the final episode. No doubt, Rip, and Dylan will go out with a bang! I only hope they will find the strength to survive! ***Ripple Effect*** *ARC graciously provided via author in exchange for an honest review!

Knowing there are greater forces at play, Rip initiates certain steps in anticipation of protecting what is his.

Knowing there are greater forces at play, Rip initiates certain steps in anticipation of protecting what is his. As he and Dylan continue to get closer, they begin to reveal more about each other’s past, unified in pain, but Rip tries to insulate Dylan the best he can once his weakness is exposed. “Everything he does is a confusing dance between dominance and reverence.  A wolf cloaked in soft lamb’s wool.” In this episode, more is revealed about Dylan’s past and how she’s been programmed over the years to respond to abuse. However, Dylan finds solace with Rip despite his rough and impersonal persona. With Dylan piercing a part of Rip that he believed to be permanently closed, there’s no doubt about his feelings and cravings for Dylan. The sexual chemistry between these two is off the charts and Rip is sex on fire! “How’s that feel, Bandit? Huh?” My fingers dig into her shins slung over my shoulders, my willpower on the verge of cracking as I bury myself deep, so fucking deep she’s got my head spinning. “This what you wanted?” When certain figures in the chain of command advance, Rip is unsure of motivating factors and the end game but it puts he and Dylan on high alert. Without many choices, Rip must play the game until Dylan discovers a connection that she could have never imagined. “Her broken pieces are hidden behind a fragile mask of normalcy that could crack at any moment.” In this third episode, the action is nonstop with varying factions vying for their rightful place. In addition, the sexual dynamic and intimacy between Rip and Dylan is scorching. From the beginning, I was waiting for a certain truth to be revealed and when it happened in this book, I absolutely loved the delivery and reaction. Rip continues to be a steamy, broody, possessive and protective character and it balances so well with Dylan’s humor, forthrightness and naivety at times. In continuing this series, Keri Lake delivers such a captivating story with raw edginess, adrenaline charged pacing and characters that meld easily together. I highly recommend Ripple Effect!

I trust her to make 5 BUTTERFLY STARS Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books Preface: This review covers all four episodes in this series. I'm trying to be as vague as possible and to keep it spoiler-free so that those who haven't read all episodes yet can enjoy the full experience. Sometimes I like to venture into the darker corners of my mind with the help of a super talented author. When I hear Keri Lake has a new book coming out I'll hand over the reins and let her take me out of my comfort zone. I trust her to make me squirm uncomfortably...and still have a good time. Dylan is only a few weeks away from her 18th birthday and it can't come quick enough. At the hand of her uncle she suffers unmentionable abuse which she only bears in a drugged up stupor and barely remembers what happened afterwards. Her mother died of a drug overdose, or that's what authorities want her to believe, and her father committed suicide. Dylan's only tether to a semblance of normalcy and the one being she cares most about is her dog Charlie. After another horrific experience with her uncle she has had enough and flees the filthy apartment. Having no money to get by is a problem so what's a girl to do? Ripley is a hitman for one of the mob families competing for power in Chicago. When he follows one of his targets he observes a girl getting into the car of the man he is supposed to kill. He saves her from being raped and killed...and is bemused. Rip doesn't *save* people. He tortures them, makes them beg for a merciful death without remorse. This girl, though, is an enigma to him. She is innocent and yet she isn't, she is naive and still streetwise. Ripley doesn't need witnesses yet he sends her off on her way...but...he can't stop thinking about her. So what's a guy to do? If you think loving a man like Rip is impossible let me tell you - it isn't. In some twisted logic Keri Lake makes you believe that this cold blooded, obviously psychopathic killer is deep down a good man. He is ruthless, twisted, charismatic and single minded in his focus on his target. Dylan brings out the tender feelings inside of him he didn't think he had. Is he gentle with her? Far from it. Their love is raw, violent and volatile. And as much as I fear that my demons will ultimately tear her apart, the disturbing reality is, they’d probably get drunk with hers and have a fucking orgy together. Dylan is a contradiction of naiveté and experience, innocence and jadedness, toughness and vulnerability. She fascinates the cruel Ripley and soon he finds himself entangled in a relationship with an expiry date. The more time he spends with her the more he obsesses about her and the more possessive he gets. And can I say he is HOT? Because, damn, he is! “This is what fascinates me about you. Doesn’t matter that you’re tied to a bed in a basement, facing all variety of gruesome outcomes, you never lose that spitfire attitude.” Dylan is probably my favorite heroine by Keri Lake as of yet. She is strong with enough softness, sweetness and vulnerability to make her relatable. She has a youth about her that belies the darkness inside her. I don't think I would have survived the atrocities she experienced in her young life. Together Dylan and Rip are explosive but if you look closely there is a gentle side to their relationship that comes unexpected. I adored how they took care of each other, how these two broken souls fell in love and made sense despite their darkness. Merciless and merciful. Wild and broken. He’s a raging fire, with the inclination to destroy whatever gets in his path, and I’m nothing but a small scrap of kindling. Yet the way he stares at me with such reverence, makes me feel like I’m the one holding the match. Keri Lake's gritty writing is flawless as usual. She tackles a very real and uncomfortable subject and passes with flying colors. The mood is intense. Sinister, brutal and raw and not for the faint of heart, yet in the end you'll find yourself deeply in love with a brutal killer and the love of his life. If you haven't read a book by this author yet and love grungy and gritty tales I urge you to pick up one of her stories. You won't regret it.

They're begin to build chemistry naturally. I wouldn't call it insta-love but there is strong lust between them. Ripley also never cease to amazed me with his dark humor. There is no God here. He’s not my savior. He’s an angel with black wings. A dealer of death. My ruin. ~Dylan Dylan still has flashbacks and I think it has something to do with Ripley, or at least the person he works for. There's a bit tug-of-war between them and undeniable hugeee sexual tension. I really loved how they're burn for each other. The sex was OH.MY.GOD kind of thing. Ripley and his dirty talks? Yum! “I want to watch you come.” “Why?” “Because that’s your truth and I need to see your face when you succumb to it. When you shatter for me. ~Ripley I wish he didn’t have this effect on me. I wish his mouth and hands didn’t carry whatever poison he spreads on my skin that makes me so pliant, bending, always bending to his will. The fight is what he craves, but he makes it impossible when his mouth feels like heaven and his touch is salvation. ~Dylan Their non-existent relationship definitely getting better. Once again, Ripley shown his humane side. Damn, If it isn't romantic for a killer but he really did something that swooned me. They're looks like a normal couple in this twisted world. But it doesn't last long. Ripley still has a job and Dylan already occupied his mind. I didn’t intend to keep her, but I also didn’t intend for her to penetrate the walls I’ve constructed to avoid all this shit, because men like me don’t trust enough to love. My heart’s only function is to keep me alive, and I don’t even trust the bastard to do that for long. For years I’ve been numb. Impenetrable. Dylan’s somehow etched herself deep beneath my skin, though, so rather than fight it, I’ll do everything in my power to protect her. ~Ripley Half of this book shown their intimate moment and I really enjoyed it. However, Dylan isn't a Cinderella and no happily ever after with Ripley, for now. Something happened and they're not in good terms.. Ripley stated that he didn't trust anyone. I missed how they fight because Dylan is no weak heroine. She's still brave and feisty; sometimes naive. Overall, I loved this episode. And the ending shocked me to the core. Unpredictable and sucks.

Things are getting a whole lot interesting as more of the plot and character's background is revealed. Dylan and Ripley are definitely getting a lot closer in this book. They are both so messed up but somehow they totally balance each other out. They understand each other and get under each other's skin, it's no wonder how their bond only gets stronger. Dylan knows that this thing between them is supposed to be temporary and that her heart has no place in it, but she can't help but start to develop feelings for Ripley. Ripley also tells himself the same thing and that he should just let her go, but there is something about her that has him addicted to her that he doesn't want to let her walk away. The steam as in the previous book is all kinds of smoking hot...like seriously! I can not get enough of the sexy Ripley. I loved learning more about him and seeing a slightly softer side to him. I hope there is more of that side of him to see in the next book. Dylan is also such a great character as well. For being so young, Dylan is so strong and feisty. Together they are just perfect. ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ● 'He’s not my savior. He’s an angel with black wings. A dealer of death.

I can keep going on how much I am LOVING this series, but I have already mentioned it in my reviews of the last two and it has not changed with this one. The writing is just as good and the story will totally captivate you. I am super stoked to read episode 4. Especially with how things ended in this book. Oh, it's going to be so good.

There are many players involved in the series besides Dylan and Rip. Dark and evil forces are closing in. As with the seedy underground, intentions and motives are deceitful and corrupt. The time is closing in on completion of Ripley's orders. This ending fuels the last episode to one that will be explosive. Will Ripley and Dylan survive? Can they get a happily ever after when both souls are scarred and tattered? I can't wait to read the last and final episode and see what happens. I must say that I love that the author sprinkles in past memories. In weaving this dastardly web, we are able to see how the past has affected and formed Dylan and Ripley. It helps to see the big picture of the ties and bonds that they may or may not share. Ripple Effect is a four book novella series. Each episode will release every 2 weeks which makes the waiting exciting and bearable. Episode 1 and 2 are out and 3 releases March 24. *advanced copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review *

    There's not a lot I can add that I haven't already fan-girled about in the first two episodes of Ripple Effect. This four-episode series is all kinds of dark suspense with an anti-hero I couldn't help but root for. It's a gradual build that has me feverishly turning the pages and jumping from one episode to the next. A highly reccomended series for fans of darker, grittier, romantic suspense.

    I'll review all four episodes together, because I can't remember what happened individually in each. I've had very low expectations, considering this was serial-novellas. Colour me suprised! Writing was good, which was the biggest suprise! Sadly these kind of themes and genres give the authors leave to fuck the grammar and language. In the end we are left with coverbaits that read as brainfarts. I'm happy to say, that was not the situation here.

Ripley & Dylan are still enjoying their arrangement as roommates/lovers. She feels safe with him, but still doesn't know exactly how she fits into his life, or what she is to him. She's starting to feel attached to him, & craves not only his touch, but his trust. She knows this isn't a fairytale, but she's starting to see a different side to him. He can be tender at times, and she just wants whatever part of himself he's willing to give her. He's still her ticket to a better life, but could there also be something real between them. -"You're so fucking beautiful it hurts." -I'm surrounded by hell and you show up like a breath of salvation. -The more resistant I am, the more he wants it, and for as many people in my life who sought to control my rebellious nature, this man seems to feed on it. -No one's ever kissed me like this, so tender yet possessive, as if I belong to him. -I hate that he has this power over me, but that's the nature of Ripley and me. We're fucked up- two wrongs that somehow make a right. Dylan has awakened something inside of Ripley. He doesn't want her to be his weakness, or someone his enemies can use against him, but he'd kill for her. She's his, & he will destroy anyone who tries to harm her. He has this overwhelming need to protect her & doesn't want to ever hurt her. He was numb for years until Dylan entered his life. No matter how hard he tries to fight it, she makes him feel.

    In all the years on Goodreads, I have never written a review using the app on my phone. Until today. Keri Lake has caused me to lose my damn mind. I don't want to take the time to write a proper review of each of these because stopping too long would be difficult, even though some of this story is more than I can handle, at times. So I will say this, If you like phenomenally written dark as f*ck reads, pick this series up.

YES, YES, YES, YESSSSSS!! You wanna be high for this. This series just keeps getting better and better. Ripple Effect: Episode 3 continues the story of Ripley and Dylan. The darkly vibe is still there, the pace continues to be steady with suspense, angst and sexually charged elements but there's also a bit of romance. Yeah, you read that right, ROMANCE, in its fucked up way but romance after all. "I didn't intend to keep her, but I also didn't intend for her to penetrate the walls I've constructed to avoid all this shit, because men like me don't trust enough to love. My heart's only function is to keep me alive, and I don't even trust the bastard to do that for long." And I melt... Just like the previous ones, this episode is unputdownable. Ripley is the kind of man you should not trust nor love. And his relationship with Dylan is one you shouldn't ship but that you ended up doing it anyway. #KeriLakesWritingEffects Craving, I'm craving I crave you Waiting, I'm waiting to touch you Whenever, forever, I know that Still I'm coming back. -Crave by Tove Lo. And just like Rip & Dylan crave each other. You will find yourself craving for more of them. I have said it before, and I'm saying it now. Four episodes are not going to be enough to quench my thirst for these two. Not satisfied with the feelings Keri Lake evoked in me with this episode, the ending... I went batshit crazy with it. If you're a sucker for dark romances and you haven't started this series I highly recommend you to do it. The characters, the storyline, the sexual tension, EVERYTHING, everything is over the top addictive. I'm Mg and I got ripped. You can find me here: FB PAGE | INSTAGRAM

But, I locked those boys out of my room and went to work on Rip, and it was so worth it! Beautiful pieces of forever that have no stability to last. As this series has progressed we’ve gotten progressively more in-depth looks at our characters and they’re always so well done. The characters are so dynamic and by getting different pieces of their individual backgrounds throughout the series I feel like I’ve been able to empathize with them better. Dylan and Rip have both had equally hard lives and as they share that pain with each other it allows them to build a tenuous trust. I got your six, Bandit. I felt like Rip and Dylan were hanging out more together in this one and I enjoyed their dynamic. They’re opening up a bit more to each other and trying to overcome their inclination toward solidarity. A good portion of their time together was the sexy kind and it was super hot! I wish he didn't have this effect on me. I wish his mouth and hands didn't carry whatever poison he spreads on my skin that makes me so pliant, bending, always bending to his will. The ending of this one, just like the ending of the previous 2, totally left me hanging! I cannot wait for the conclusion to Rip and Dylan’s story. **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book

    Rated 4.5 Stars This story is so damn addicting I can barely tear myself away from it. Things really come to a head in this one and although I saw the thing that is revealed at the end of this part coming I was still able to enjoy the unveiling. I'm really enjoying this tale that Keri Lake has woven and I cannot wait to read the conclusion. I have a feeling it is going to be truly epic. ARC provided by author in exchange for a honest review

Just how we like i SERIES REVIEW 4.5 gripping stars ‘For those of us in the flock, survival comes down to how well we manipulate, because a predator’s eyes are naturally drawn to the most innocent.’ We pretty much knew that by picking this four book serial up we’d be in for a violent twisted story that would have us gripped as we turned the pages. After all this is Keri Lake we’re talking about and once again, we were not disappointed! It was compelling, it was intense and it was utterly f**ked up. Just how we like it when we’re in the mood for something dark and gritty. We were hooked! Brilliantly written dark erotic suspense. ‘I’m ravenous and impatient. He makes me this way. He’s become my drug. The rush that excites me, and the high that keeps me addicted.’ ‘I want to absorb some of his pain, some of his punishment that surrounds him, and make it my own.’ We have to admit that we question if we would’ve enjoyed it as much as we did if it wasn’t for the fact that we read the four instalments in one sitting. The momentum would’ve been hampered, as would the uneasiness and utter intrigue we felt, if we’d had to wait. It became a race against time as we just had to know what was going to happen and how two completely messed up characters could find something akin to ‘normalcy’ in the shape of love and trust. So, we definitely recommend reading all four in one hit in order to truly feel the power behind the words; feel the impact of their crucial weight as ripples become a raging current. ‘She’s one of those rare finds that you stumble upon, covered in dirt and grime that, when you scrub away the tarnish, is actually a stunning piece of art.’ Dylan is a conundrum- her past and present all tied up haphazardly with a vicious blood-dripping bow. We get harrowing glimpses, ugly and extremely painful snippets from her past – there is no safety nor security in her life. Whilst there’s no question that she has her wits about her and a sharp intelligence with a penchant for striking back, she also has a caring and vulnerable side which she only reveals in part. This girl is overwhelmingly scarred and her consequent behaviour questionable at times. What she needs is someone who can match her in every way. ‘I’m a vengeance dealer. A mercenary. I feign loyalty to exact revenge.’ ‘There was a time I’d search for something about the bastards that would justify the kills. Something that would eliminate the guilt. Years later, I find myself searching for some reason not to kill. A glimmer of humanity inside of me. There’s nothing.’ Ripley is the ultimate anti-hero; a brutal killer with an urge for over the top violence. He’s as dark as they come, conditioned to and for evil. He’s enigmatic and a frightening force. With his own tragic and horrific past he’s a loner and reluctant to form any associations. Vulnerable? Blink and you’ll miss it … but is there a chance Dylan could expose it? ‘I hate that he has this power over me, but that’s the nature of Ripley and me. We’re fucked up- two wrongs that somehow make a right.’ Whilst being a thrilling and intricate storyline despite the excessively dark, raw and violent theme, there’s a thread of humanity pulsating through the pages which two desperate characters are clawing their way through life to grip in order to survive their respective darkness. Sometimes love comes in different guises and your saviour is who you’d least expect. When life is the actual nightmare what do you do? What can you do? ‘My little Bandit. My goddamn ruin.’ ★Each Book ONLY 99c/99p★ Episode 1 Available to purchase below Amazon US Amazon UK Episode 2 Available to purchase below Amazon US Amazon UK Episode 3 Available to purchase below Amazon US Amazon UK Episode 4 Available to purchase below Amazon US Amazon UK Come visit and follow us at: ✲ TotallybookedBlog ✲ TB on Facebook ✲ TB on Twitter ✲ TB on Pinterest

    OMG!!!!! I'm dying here, Episode 3 was excellent. The obsessive, lustful connection between Dylan and Rip is combustible and I loved every moment of it. More threads of the story are connecting and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. With Dylan clean she's remembering more and its heartbreaking what was done to this young girl. Rip is showing more softness towards Dylan but struggles with it. I can't wait for the next one.
