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.
By Keri Lake
Bloody, bloody, bloody…and a little more bloody added on for good measure.
I read dark in the dark.
Bright and sunny days are not the right time to step into the dark and see the stuff of nightmares.
Keri Lake has ripped me from my nice and cosy world and dumped me into one filled with screams of pain, bullets with your name on it and time measured between your next hit. I’m going to be dreaming (screaming) about blood…lots and lots of blood.
Loved it…but bloody hell. You can’t help but turn your mind off to the violence as you read a Keri Lake. For me, there’s a little compartment that I place all the dark scenes where I can somehow…not see them. It’s like I can turn off how bad and disturbing they really are. What I can’t get enough of, is looking into the mind of the characters. I like to see where the characters have been and what they will face. There’s this little part of me that wants them to find their own happy place…even if that happy place is in the dark.
This is part of the story and I can’t wait for more. Now, saying that, I’m kind of happy to inform you that this author has done right by her readers. $0.99…BARGAIN!!! I’m very impressed. 🙂
