A New Heroine Rises...

Kelsey Atwood is a private detective with a problem. She came from a family of hunters, growing up on the wrong side of the supernatural world. Tracking down bail jumpers and deadbeat dads may not make her a lot of friends, but it’s a lot safer than the life she turned her back on. She was hoping to escape from the nightmares of her past, but her latest case has brought them right back to her door.

A young woman has gone missing, and she didn’t go willingly. When Kelsey discovers that the girl is actually a shifter, she knows she should drop the case and walk away. But this shifter was a sweet kid, and she’s in serious trouble. More females are missing and the evidence points to a legendary killer. Bodies are piling up, and her case is becoming center stage for a conflict that could shatter the fragile peace between wolves and vampires.

As the hunt intensifies, she finds herself trapped between two men—Gray, a magnetic half-demon lawman, and the ancient vampire Marcus Vorenus. Both men call to her, but when a shocking secret about Kelsey’s family is revealed, it could ruin them all. To stop the killer, she will have to embrace the truth about who—and what—she truly is.

my thoughts

RIPPER by Lexi Blake was an AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, SEXY, and SUSPENSEFUL treat! I absolutely adore this paranormal side of the incredibly talented Ms. Blake. She feeds my need for everything paranormal just like great authors like Nalini Singh and Kresley Cole. Just like all of the series before this, absolutely EVERYTHING the author has goes into a story like this. It has so much heart, so much depth and emotion. I don’t just read the book, I EXPERIENCE it on every single level possible. And the joy I get from having the characters from Ms. Blake’s THIEVES novels pop up in this story is just insurmountable.

Time and time again, this author thrusts me into a world I never want to escape. I want to live, breathe, live her characters and her storylines. I want to delve into the mind of Ms. Blake and get lost in the depth of emotion she brings out in all of her beautiful characters. With out of this world descriptive writing, sexy and nail-biting plot twists, and such an emotional pull from each and every word, it’s no wonder Lexi Blake is one of my all time favorite authors. There is no sign that this woman is slowing down, and THANK GOD for that.

Are you guys ready for a brand new, kick-ass, smart-mouth heroine? I thought so!

Kelsey Atwood brings so much to the table in RIPPER. I enjoyed this female lead so much. I was able to connect with this character almost instantly. And ladies, I know you will appreciate the incredibly sexy half-demon and the ever so alluring ancient vampire who are vying for Kelsey’s attention and affection, all the while trying to keep her stubborn ass safe. The sexual chemistry between Kelsey and Gray is magnetic, exciting, and intense. But there is also the emotional and mind-driven connection between Kelsey and Marcus that will keep you guessing, wondering if anything will every come from it. With so much suspense, and enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes, it is no wonder why RIPPER is such a page-turner. The passion and suspense on this level cannot be replicated, and that is why Lexi’s books constantly end up on my Top Pick lists. Paranormal fans, romance fans, suspense junkies, this is the book for you. New to this author? I urge you to take a leap of faith on this one. You will not be disappointed.
