Review - RIP by Rachel Van Dyken

Rachel Van Dyken brings you Rip a complete stand alone novel that fans of the Eagle Elite series will devour! With twists and turns you won't see coming, this dark romantic suspense will keep you on your toes and leave you screaming for more.

Pretty things aren't meant to be broken.
But I broke her, and now we both have to pay the price.
I'm her nightmare.
I'm her savior.
And now that I have her signature on an ironclad contract, I own her body and soul.
She doesn't remember me.
She will.
It's inevitable.
Because as much as I know I need to stay away, for fear of unlocking the memories I helped her father bury--I can't.
She was the apple in the Garden, dangled in front of me, her core so tempting and sweet. A voice whispered. Just. One. Bite.
I bit.
I tasted.
I fell.

Welcome to the world of the Russian mafia, where death, is your only future.

Jewelz Review~
Rip is another great addition to Rachel Van Dyken's mafia series - it's more of a stand alone/spin off so if you haven't read the other books you won't be lost. This book takes us inside the Russian mafia (while the other books have focused on the Italians) and lives up to the emotional and intense experience readers has come to expect from Ms Van Dyken's work.

Nikolai Blazik, known as "the Doctor," has been working for Russian mafia lord Petrov. His specialty is hypnotherapy - some might call it brainwashing - but he has a little side job where he is researching STDs.

Maya, the only living child of Petrov, is working on her doctorate and has been begging her father to help her gain an interview with Blazik since her thesis is on STDs and he's the leading reasearcher. She finally gains an audience, but is unprepared for being presented with a contract showing her father basically sold her to Blazik for the next year.

What follows is a story of love, hate, fear, secrets, revenge, and family. Because that's what the mafia is all about, right? Family.
