A ⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️ Review of RIP by Rachel Van Dyken
“One of the greatest lies you will ever believe is that you can sin in silence and get away with it. Because most of the time silence is the loudest; it demands to be known, to be heard.”
I have been anticipating this release for a very long time. When Rachel Van Dyken shared the idea she had floating around in her head about the dark and mysterious doctor, Nikolai Blazik, I was immediately cheering on her writing passion. And, oh man, did she deliver. Once again, Rachel has built a very well crafted, suspenseful mafia romance that pulls readers in from the beginning.
In this tale, Rachel carefully guides the readers through the twists and turns of the past and present that have lead to Nikolai to take Maya as his captive—to bind her to him in a contract that has her both fearing for her life and craving his presence. Will the silence he keeps be his undoing? And will the memories that slowly come to light put them in greater danger from the threat that promises to destroy their lives?
Rip is a bit of a dark, suspenseful, and gritty look at the world of the mafia. It is filled with more angst, torment, and bloodshed—exactly what I would expect when thinking about the mafia. So welcome to the darker side—welcome to the Russian Mafia!
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.
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.
Welcome to the world of the Russian mafia, where death, is your only future.
