Ripple Effect (Episode 3)

In the underbelly, trust is everything, and Dylan will soon discover that Ripley trusts no one.  With the return of an old threat, loyalty is on the line, and betrayal could mean the end of everything for both of them.


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..

Praise for Ripple Effect

Ripple Effect was one twisty, dark and erotic mind f*ck … Keri Lake simply outdid herself with Ripley. This is an anti-hero that I won’t be forgetting for a long damn while. An anti-hero that’s so dark, you don’t know if he’d be the start of the biggest fantasy...or nightmare.

I never want Ms. Lake’s stories to end, but I devour each sentence, needing the twisted climax she has in store that will leave me satisfied—and craving another hit.
