Ripple Effect by Kristin Mayer

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? 

When you read that a book is going to be a sex club owner and a naive college student, you kind of have your preconceptions about what direction the book is going to take. Well, this book goes there...and beyond. It actually isn't just an overload of steamy sex scenes. There's actual content and substance to this book which is great. Ainsley's past really comes into play and gives the story a whole lot of depth. Her character and story is colourful enough to make up for Adam's, at times, somewhat predictable and almost robotic actions. Although Adam overcomes his own past through the novel, there was just something with him that didn't click with me. I didn't dislike him but I definitely didn't love him x a billion. He was more than stand-up to Ainsley and I that's what counts in the grand scheme of things. A part of me felt like Adam may have fallen too quickly...but hey, I could just be asking too much!!

I totally didn't expect what Ripple Effect delivered but I was pleasantly surprised and am totally excited for the next book in the Effect series!
