Review: Ripple Effect by Kristen Mayer

Publication Date: October 8, 2014

Series: The Effect Series Book 1

Rating: 5 Stars 

Official Blurb: Every event in our life causes a ripple effect that we never truly understand until the waters calm and everything reveals itself. It’s in that moment we truly see…

Adam Ryker, owner of Club Envy, has his rules. Relationships stay within the walls of the club. Outside of that, people are merely acquaintances. After having his heart broken, he’s not interested in the happily ever afters and white picket fences. Adam’s interests lie in his club and giving pleasure to women.

Ainsley Pearson wants to be free. She needs an escape from her life. Her best friend suggests Club Envy. From the moment Ainsley sets foot in the club, Adam decides he wants to be the exclusive one to bring her pleasure.

He wants her.

He needs her.

He has to have her.

Adam finds himself wanting more.

Will this unforeseen ripple in Adam’s and Ainsley’s lives be too much to overcome? Or will the one thing they never thought they deserved have an everlasting effect?

Ripple Effect is book one of The Effect Series.

Review: I absolutely love this book. I fell in love with these characters from the very first page. This story is about over-coming obstacles in life and how to find oneself again. This book brings out lots of emotion all the way through. Several times I would find myself laughing, then yelling, then trying to throw my kindle, to fanning myself and a little of everything in between.

Adam has his rules and that’s how he lives his life. He never breaks them and they are there for a reason. Adam has been burned before and now he guards his heart with his life and to Adam all women are the same. He uses them until he is finished and moves onto the next… until Ainsley. Before Adam even meets Ainsely he is attracted to her but when he actually sees her for the first time he knows she might be a game changer.

Ainsely has also suffered her fair share of tragedy and sadness. She has recently broken up with her boyfriend and is just looking for a little fun. Ainsely also grew up in a childhood that wasn’t picture perfect. She doesn’t want to end up depending on someone so she decides to try something fun. Ainsely knows that she could easily fall for Adam but she is trying her best to follow the rules.

This book is so much more than love and lust. There were times I wanted to SCREAM and throw a fit at some of the things from both Adam and Ainsley’s pasts. There are many times throughout this book Adam pissed me off SOOOOO bad. I wanted to smack him a few times. But I could also see where he was coming from. Ainsely is such a sweet loveable character and I adore her! I can’t wait to start Brandt’s story next but Adam and Ainsely will forever be in my heart!!
