Nikolai is a different kind of an anti-hero whose the practices and skills will expose you to different perspectives. He is a doctor, extremely intelligent and handsome too, and he is good in cotrolling people's minds and memories. Not simply good, he's the best! He's Russian and he offers his suspicious services to both the Russian and Italian mafia. Maya is the daughter of Petrov, a Russian mob boss. She is a college student and a big admirer of Nikolai's scientific achievements. A pre-arranged interview with him by her father for a research paper of hers is going to unexpectefly end into her entrapment into a pre-signed contract between Nikolai and Petrov. According to this contract, Maya is given to Nikolai for a year by Petrov. She gains internship next to a prestigious doctor but the rules are simple: no questions, dress code: Black, no phone calls-internet, no family, vacation upon approval by Nikolai, no sexual relationships-must stay pure the entire year!
Maya has no choice but to comply with the contract specifications, but she's not aware that Nikolai belongs to her past, he had manipulated her mind when she was young under Petrov's threats, and that he has been secretly in love with her since then. The situation is getting even more perplexed when parts of her erased memories start to come back.
This page-turning tale has surprising depth. This is another very different sort of romantic thriller with unique type of twist that will definitely surprise. It's one of the best psychological suspence romances I 've ever read. The author is playing with your mind with masterful deftness that will still live you thinking. Well written with shades of "Jack the Ripper" and plenty of twists and turns! I highly recommend it!
I'm going to call RIP a crossover book because there's lots of drama, murder and action, but also romance. Due to the issues involved in the story, the plot is dark and sinister at times. There may be potential triggers for some, but if you're a fan of grittier and darker romances, then hopefully you'll be as engrossed in getting some answers as I was.
The insights into the Italian and Russian Mafia work well and we get to see some old friends. It is worth noting that I hadn't read Elude before starting RIP. I did manage to spoil certain elements of the plot for myself, so if you're going to be reading the Eagle Elite series I really would read Elude before starting RIP.
There are lots of naughty scenes, so the book isn't for younger readers. I know dark romances aren't for everybody but I wouldn't really class RIP as a dark romance. It's more of a grey-suspense-romance-thriller. I kept changing my mind about whether Nik is hot or kinda creepy. I'm not really sure what this says about me, but I ended up going with intense.
I liked Maya and felt as though she handles what is essentially pretty mixed up circumstances pretty well. I wanted her to demand some answers, but at the same time I understood (thankfully not firsthand) how frustrating it was for her to be in such a tense situation.
In a completely unrelated note, I really want to know if the cover model is Rachel's husband...?
I received a review copy.
I struggle so much when I read her books ... I don't want to put them down, they should never end ... and yet I could read them in one-sitting because they pull you into the Mafia World and you become a speed reader dying to find out what happens on the next page!
Rip is a stand-alone book ... so if you want to take a peek into the Mafia world this one can be read all by itself!! It is also a spin-off of the Eagle Elite series ... so us Mafia crazed women who have been devouring this series by Rachel get some of our favorite characters in this book!
"All our lives we're told that ugly, deformed, is bad-but its a lie. Sometimes the most terrifying things you will ever encounter are also the most beautiful."
This is the story of Maya (Andi's sister, which we met in Elude) and Nikolai. Rip starts off with a BANG ... Maya has a meeting/interview with the prestigious doctor Nikolai. Maya quickly finds out this isn't the meeting/interview she was hoping for, she has been sold or given to Nikolai by her very own father.
Say what ?!?!
Nikolai Blazik is not your average normal everyday doctor, while he can heal, diagnose, and treat people, he can also hypnotize people, erase memories, control your mind!! Nikolai has worked his magic on Maya to erase/bury some memories her father didn't want her to retain, so we start off with her torturous session with the good doctor. In order to keep Maya alive Nikolai was forced to make her believe she was in a car accident at 16 when she stumbled on something she was never meant to see.
So now all these years later she sits in his office ... given to him by her father.Read more ›
