EPISODE TWO: As a calculated assassin, Ripley thrives on always being in control. But when the woman he’s sworn to kill makes an offer he can’t refuse, his control is what he risks losing most.

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.

*This is an erotic suspense/erotic romance not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence and sex.

This book begins exactly where the last episode ended. Dylan was trying to steal money from Ripley to get her dog back from animal control, but Rip came home early. Dylan tries to hide and hopes to escape, however, Ripley catches her. No one can try to steal from him and get away with it unscathed. Since the moment he met Dylan he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her. Now that they have crossed paths again, he isn’t letting her get away. Dylan is imprisoned by him, he wants to know why she needs the and how she found him. He will find out the truth about her no matter what.

Rip knows he won’t find anything out unless he gives her something she wants in return. Since Rip is attracted to Dylan he decides to make her an offer she won’t be able to refuse. He wants to own her body for two months in exchange for $20,000. Dylan only needs a fraction of that to get her dog back, but the rest will definitely help her get back on her feet. Once she agrees, a load of intense steam ensues, even Dylan herself is helpless to the pleasure.

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.

I freaking LOVED this installment. I loved getting to know a bit more about who the man named Rip is. He is intense in every aspect of his life. I really enjoyed reading how fascinated he is by Dylan. I don’t want to give too much away, but it was so very good. The steam does not disappoint. When has it ever in a Keri Lake book? Never. I loved the sexual chemistry between them. I can’t wait to read the third episode and learn a little bit more. I can’t wait to watch their “relationship” evolve. It’s going to be awesome!
