The Viper (Untamed Hearts #1) by Kele Moon REVIEW

Marcos Rivera is a fighter. A gang member. Someone who has seen the dark side of humankind and survived. He has lost family and gained enemies. He has stolen cars and destroyed hearts, stripping one for money and the other for pleasure. His past is haunted and his future is bleak.

Until her.

Katie Foster is a high school history teacher. Smart, strong, and sexy. She is a woman Marcos shouldn’t want. Shouldn’t touch. Shouldn’t love. He met her in Garnet, a backwards, hick town that’s the last place in the world he wants to be, but he finds himself going back for a taste of the forbidden.

Katie represents all that is good in the world, and Marcos knows he’s nothing but trouble for her perfect life. He fights and he screws. He commits crimes and he breaks the rules. He will never change and he will never escape his gang lifestyle.

Or can he?

What happens when two different people from two very different walks of life risk it all by giving into the passion that threatens to consume both of them? Can a woman who only knows how to play it safe give her heart to a man who lives hard and loves harder?

Will she survive The Viper?


★★★★ 4.5 Stars ★★★★

Que linda! I loved this, and I really don’t know why it’s taken me so long to read it considering how much I loved Crossing the Line by the same author. This is a spin off series and The Viper features Chuito’s cousin Marcos, who if you have read the Battered Heats series, you will know is an ex-gangster and current UFC fighter. (His story is next :D)

Marcos Rivera is still active in the gang and it isn’t until he meets sweet and open Katie Foster that he starts to question his future.

Katie has lived in Garnet all her life, apart from when she left to go to college with her now ex-husband. She works at the high school, with said ex-husband, and she has led a pretty normal and boring life up until now.

She can’t resist the beautiful Puerto Rican, who has an air of danger about him but makes her feel so safe at the same time.

And he makes her feel beautiful, which for me is one of the hottest things a man can do for a woman.

“That’s it chica. Lemme hear you get off on me fucking you like the sexy bitch you are.”

The sex scenes were through the roof!

I fell in love with Marcos as quick as Katie did, I just couldn’t help myself. He was sweet, and sexy and dirty and protective. My heart just about broke for them though when circumstances were causing them to be apart.

They were so good together and I got really emotional reading this. It was so beautiful how two people from completely different backgrounds could be so in love, I was swooning all over the place.

“No crying. I want you to stop letting the world hurt you. That means you don’t let thugs make you cry.”

We also had a lot of interaction between Marcos & Chuito, and also from the Italian mofos that feature in the previous series.

Don’t worry if you haven’t read Battered Hearts, as this can totally be read as a standalone and you won’t be confused to who everyone is.

Highly recommend this series for those who love a latino hottie, the Guide to Spanish Street slang at the back was an extra bonus and I spent all night dreaming of my very own Marcos.
