Brandt Mattox had it all-love, success, and friends. One impulsive wrong decision led him down a path that ended in a prison of regrets. He now only dreams of the happiness he once had before the consequences of his actions cost him everything.

He lost his love-not just any love, but his soul mate.

Nikola Kingston has worked hard to keep the past in the past while she focuses on her career and spending time with her grandmother. On a random night, she runs into the one man who will forever hold her heart captive. Her heart knows she still loves Brandt, but her mind cannot forget the dreadful night that cost her the love of her life.

Will the domino effect of Brandt's and Nikola's decisions be too much to overcome? Or will the love they never thought they would get back have an everlasting effect?

So the cover is what first caught my attention.  I thought it was stark and probably hid a fabulous story inside its covers, and I was right.  Domino Effect started off slow for me.  I wasn't aware this was the second book in a series, but that became clear in the initial pages and very shortly thereafter my fear of being perpetually lost while reading this book ended as well.  Kristin Mayer brilliantly slid in a small recap that didn't spoil anything from book one that featured different characters, but still caught me up with everything I might have missed. Part of what I really liked about this book was how the story line was fluid and shifted. Initially the book was focused on Nikola and Brandt reconnecting and trying to renew their relationship, but soon shifted to other issues they'd face, and then other things going on in their lives.  I loved how supportive Brandt was of Nikola.  He made sure to put her first.  I guess having lost her once, he knew what he could lose again and was willing to do whatever it took to make sure that didn't happen. While the story may have started out slowly, around 10% is picked up and took off.  I read the remainder of the book in almost 2 hours.  I love how carefully and diligently Kristin treated the issues the characters in this book faced.  Wesley's situation broke my heart.  As did what happened with Anne.  I will admit to breaking down and sobbing at certain points. I couldn't help myself.  There were also certain parts of the book when I anxious and my heart was beating fast.  I'm surprised and impressed at how seamlessly Kristin Mayer weaved romance, life, and suspense all together. The journey Brandt had to redeem himself with Nikola and the journey Nikola took to trust Brandt again wasn't easy.  They had many hurdles to face.  However with the love and support of one another and friends they managed to overcome it all.  I do hope Kristin continues this series.  I would love to see Wesley find happiness and see how Brandt and Nikola are doing in the future.

Nikola is a very forgiving person. When I read the details of what Brandt did to her, I admit that I had a very hard time imagining taking him back. I know that he was all coked out and didn't realize what he was doing. I know that he has been sober for a year. I just don't know that I could have taken him back. I definitely would have forgiven him. Maybe I could have taken him back, but it would have taken me much longer than it took Nikola to even consider it. Brandt really is a good person deep down. He did make some stupid decisions that cost him a lot. He has been very fortunate to be able to reclaim his life. I do like him. This book was heavier on the sex than I thought it was going to be. Some readers are going to like that a lot. What got to me was that the characters kept insisting that they were more than just a sexual relationship, but I felt like that overpowered a lot of their relationship, particularly in the beginning. It took until the second half of the book for more of a story to emerge. A lot of it I could see coming. It felt like it all happened quite quickly. There is a touch of suspense, which I do always enjoy on occasion in my romances.  This book is the second one in the series. I found that it does read well as a standalone, because it focuses on the relationship between Nikola and Brandt. I discovered that the first book is about Adam and Ainsley, their two best friends. I would consider reading that one, as well. This one wasn't my favorite romance that I have read as of late. Many are going to enjoy it more than I did. But it wasn't horrible or anything like that. I will still check out Mayer's other books.

If you haven't checked out this series and you love contemporary romance you don't know what you're missing. Both series from this author are amazing and they just keep getting better and better.This book puts you through so many emotions. I had moments where I literally laughed out loud, so funny. Then their were tears and ugly crying for their loss. I can not leave out the hot passion these two were so hot i thought they were going to spontaneously com bust before they consummated, then even after they did they still remained in lust along with falling deeper in love. He came through so much to be with her again and she had to get past how he'd broke her heart before. AWESOME READ!

O M G!! This book is a HOT steamy read! There's so much emotion in this book. It is a roller coaster of a ride! You laugh, you cry, you fall in love, and when it's finished you keep trying to turn the last page expecting more because you don't want the story to end! I finished this book in less than 10 hours of being released.. I could NOT put it down!! This is the second and final book in the Effect series. Ripple Effect is book one and that is just as hot!!! Well done Mrs. Mayer! I can't wait to see what you have in store for your faithful readers and fans next!!!

There was something about Brandt in Ripple Effect that drew me in. He was my favorite. His story definitely kept me interested. Brandt is a hard worker who through an unfortunate mistake that spirals out of control, lost the woman he loves Nikola is an independent woman who loved Bradnt deeply, until addiction tore her trust apart. This story takes place after their end, when fate brings them back together. See what steps Brandt takes to win his love back, and learn if Nikola can trust him with her heart.
