Review - Rip by Rachel Van Dyken

Title: Rip
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Release Date: October 20, 2015

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.

My lady boner for Rachel's books is porn star status. It's that big. Luckily for me, it can see reason. Not all of Rachel's books have been a home-run for me, but the ones that were she hit out of the park. Rip is one of those books. 

I knew this book was going to be good. I had already fallen in love with the characters from the Eagle Elite series so by the time I was ready to start swiping, the anticipation was about to kill me. The thing about anticipation is that as much as it can heighten an experience, it can also ruin one—you expect too much, or hope it will be one way when it turns out to be another. Have no fear, Rachel has used her magic once again to create a masterpiece of pure genius. Never has is been so easy to fall in love with a monster and never before has it felt so right. All the anticipation that was built up by me was completely justified. Simply put, Rachel rocked this book. 

I'm pretty sure my porn star status appendage just grew an inch.

Ms. Van Dyken is a writing god sent from heaven. This mafia spin off from her Eagle Elite series is just amazing!! 

Every book she has written is top notch, action packed, fun and witty all in one. Rip was no exception. Although it is technically a spin-off, it can be read as an amazing standalone, and how she did that so perfectly is beyond me. The main man Nikolai.....woah. Like, for real. Sorry, but when you have a character that is so dark and delicious spilling of the pages, you just have to wipe off your drool and say, "woah." 

Ms. Van Dyken is my go-to author for an awesome read no matter the genre, but romantic suspense is my ultimate favorite. And this doctor had me on the verge of entering a loony bin with the twists and turns along the way. I love me a sexy-yet-crazy read!
