Den of Vipers by K.A. Knight
Published July 10, 2020
Ryder, Garrett, Kenzo, and Diesel—The Vipers.
They run this town and everyone in it. Their deals are as sordid as their business, and their reputation is enough to bring a grown man to his knees, forcing him to beg for mercy. They are not people you mess with, yet my dad did. The old man ran up a debt with them and then sold me to cover his losses.
Yes, sold me.
They own me now.
I’m theirs in every sense of the word. But I’ve never been meek and compliant. These men, they look at me with longing. Their scarred, blood-stained hands holding me tight. They want everything I am, everything I have to give, and won’t stop until they get just that. They can own my body, but they will never have my heart.
The Vipers? I’m going to make them regret the day they took me.
This girl? She bites too.
I have lately been reading a bunch of romance in between my fantasy books. It’s been a newer genre for me the past almost two years reading romance now. So I’m still figuring what I like and what I don’t like. And I’m 100% OK with some spicy reads. But I find sometimes the spicer things get, the worse the writing gets. NOT IN ALL CASES, but more often than not.
But wow, this book was just…absolutely not for me. Mind you, the goodreads description gives a warning of : this book contains scenes and references of abuse/assault that some readers may find triggering. Along with graphic sex scenes and violence. This is a dark book. Like…I don’t even think that was a good enough warning. This book was extremely dark and intense. I don’t understand how this book blew up so much. It was all just way too intense in terms of the sex scenes I just felt like they were…all abusive.
I also have to say this book had like zero plot. It started off okay and then it was just sex sex sex sex and nothing going on in terms of progressing the plot and it was kind of frustrating. I would enjoy it so much more if there was plot progression between the extreme sex scenes.
Anyway, this book seems to be extremely polar in the sense of you love it or you hate it. And unfortunately, I hated it. I didn’t even finish it, and thank GOD it was free on Kindle Unlimited or I would have been even more frustrated that I spent money on it.
Sorry but I actually didn’t finish this book. It’s been my first DNF in years.
