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.
Ripple Effect: Episode 3
(A Dark Hitman Erotic Romance Book 3)
By Keri Lake
The slide into 3 wasn’t as smooth as the first 2…
Episode 3 has left me a little tweaked and jittery. I started Ripple Effect ~ Episode 3 feeling confident that I knew what I was getting, could handle the pace and kind of got a little cocky. I learnt a very valuable lesson today, you should NEVER let yourself get cocky reading a Keri Lake. I’m sure she laughs at my cockiness.
See, of the three I’ve read this is by far the tamest when it comes to blood and gore but definitely had my mind playing tricks on me. I started to see hearts and flowers romance…well…the dark kind of hearts and flowers romance. You know, the hand to the throat in the middle of an intimate scene, to show how much you really care, kind. I thought that the barrier between them was turning into a barrier around them. 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?
Is Rip aware that he’s protecting his opponent?
Will another person under Rip’s protection be taken out?
The mind games are playing out and it’s nearly time to see who will be standing at the end.
