New Release + Review – THE 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.

I don’t think I am okay after having read this book!!!

I thought I had read everything until Keri Lake came with her genius devil mind and wrote this book. I mean I am so in awe of her right how that I am a little bit scared of what she is capable.

This book is dark and by that I mean D.A.R.K. It is raw and brutal. It will make you cringe and question every thing you’ve ever known. It pulls you right in and grabs onto you. I forgot everything except this story because really none of it mattered.

Ripley is not a hero. I think he even surpassed the antihero because he is such a contradiction that there is no proper word to describe him. He is cold yet he feels every emotion for Dylan. He is ruthless yet incredibly sweet (IN HIS OWN WAY) for Dylan. He was so messed up and I absolutely LOVED him for this.

Dylan, oh my sweet summer child!! If any person could go what she went through and still remain sane then they are badasses who are meant to rule the mortal World. I admire her strength and even the vulnerability that just lay beneath the surface. One of the bravest character I’ve ever read.

I know I’m being vague but the less you know the better this story is. (Even though it comes with minor heart attacks)

5 Stars!
