Review The Viper, Untamed Hearts series by Kele Moon

Title: The Viper
Author: Kele Moon
Series: Untamed Hearts
Release Date: August 19th 2014


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?

Author Bio

A freckle-faced redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives on pushing the envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is that, in love, there are no rules and true love knows no bounds.

So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it, she’s lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who has infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the oven, he’s usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children, who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts—they wouldn’t have it any other way.

This is the second time I've read this book and must have forgotten to write a review the first time.

I absolutely loved this book!

Our main characters collide - literally - at the beginning of the book. Though they click, right then and there, bad moment or not, they part but can't stop thinking of each other.

Katie is a teacher; she's the good girl that trusts easily but she also has a rebel streak in her and has no problem speaking her mind. Or standing up to the pendejos [= a-holes] - as Marcos calls them - like her ex-husband.

Marcos is the exact opposite. He has a shady past; he's also an ex-con that went down for his gang, back in Miami. He's the quintessential bad boy good girls should stay away from. He's the bad boy dads dread. But he's oh-so-good! He's funny, he's loyal to a fault and would do absolutely anything for his family. Plus, he's selfless. He's, as his cousin, Chu, put it, the lover.

"I'm gonna eat you out until you scream, chica."

Ay Dios mio. There ya go, proof he's giving and selfless.

I really love these two. They may be opposites, but they are perfect together, for each other. Katie brings out the best in Marcos, while he brings out the bad girl side of hers. But this story is about family, blood or not; loyalty and love. Marcos changed his ways, to be better for Katie and you just have to love a man that's capable of anything for the woman he loves.

I want a Marcos Rivera.

5 stars for the sexiest Boricuan in literature and one of my fave books, ever.
