Rip by Rachel Van Dyken

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. 26165764._sy475_
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 REVIEW

5 Stars

I loved Nikolai when he appeared briefly in the Eagle Elite series. So mysterious and oh so hot. RIP was terrific; I enjoyed every second of reading the story of Nik and Maya.They were perfect in every way.

Nikolai is The Doctor, and Maya wants to interview him for her thesis. So a meeting is arranged, only things don’t go as planned. She’s not unfamiliar with the Russian Mafia, but she wants to be free. From this life and especially her father. So when Nikolai admits that her father has sold her off to him, she’s shattered. She’s Nik’s for a year. Living in the same building, and working for him, no questions asked.

From one prison into another.

Good looking? Check.
Brilliant? Check.
Rich? Check.
Possible sociopath? Double check.
Great. I was dining with Ted Bundy.

I love Maya. She is fierce, loyal, sarcastic, took no shit kind of gal, and fit perfectly with Nik. I loved their back and forth banter and her ability to unwind him. Their chemistry was off the charts, and the sexual tension went off the roof!

The day had been difficult, but she was making me laugh, just like Andi had. I needed it more than oxygen.

There were many secrets in this book, and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. I read this one in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed Nik and Maya’s story; if you’re looking for a sexy mafia romance with a lot of suspense, one-click this bad boy!

This book can be read as a standalone, but the characters from Eagle Elite do appear in this book.
