” I am going to view this as a warm up, it didn’t quite hit the spot for me…” ~ Under the Covers
I have been looking forward to the beginning of Kele Moon’s Untamed Hearts series for what seems like forever. I adored her Battered Hearts series so I was full prepared to turn full force of my obsession onto Untamed Hearts, the spin off of that series. Now, I wouldn’t say I was disappointed exactly with this book, but it definitely, for me, lacked the emotion punch and almost grand romance of the books in Battered Hearts.
If you love a bad boy, the hero of the The Viper Marcos Rivera may be right up your alley (or any alley about to mug the next passerby), a not-quite-former gang member and underground fighter, Marcos is trying to get out and go straight, but it is proving to be one of the hardest things he has ever done. The last thing he expects is to fall for a high school teacher; Katie Foster is as soft as he is hard. But he can’t deny the pull and mutual attraction between them, but he needs to stay away from her they belong in two separate worlds and he refuses to drag her down into his.
It wasn’t that Katie and Marcos didn’t have good chemistry together, they did and the sexual attraction between them was obvious. And the obstacles keeping them seemed real enough that it tugged on your heart. However, it didn’t have the intensity and emotional upheaval I was expecting which made it stand out from other books in the bad boy meets good girl troupe.
But it wasn’t a bad book it had everything I have come to expect from Kele Moon, the characters were likable, the sex was hot and the romance was lovely. It has also built up a couple of the characters from the Battered Hearts series who I really hope will get a book soon in this series! I am going to view this as a warm up, it didn’t quite hit the spot for me, but I look forward to giving the next book a try.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
