Review: Vipers Run (Skulls Creek #1) by Stephanie Tyler (DNF)


I got pulled in by the cover and blurb, but unfortunately this novel didn’t work for me and I DNF’d it.

I don’t mind reading insta-love/lust, but this one was over the top. How can anyone fall in love over a 10 min phone call, sight unseen? Then add in the two months of her mourning this guy she never meets and think’s is dead? A lot didn’t make sense.

Up to this point Cage and Calla haven’t talked, shared, or gotten to know each other. All they have is this attraction, sex, and trying to avoid the past. I can’t understand how Calla can feel, at this point, even at the begging, the way she does about Cage. She feels a deeper bond, something profound, but I just don’t see it. She also feels that the sex is more then sex. As for the sex… They don’t use condom’s (not once), Cage has a pierced cock, but it doesn’t come up during the sex scenes, and the sex scenes are bland and glossed over.

Next not much is talked or introduced on the other guys in Cage’s MC. The only thing I learned is that they are the good MC, not the bad kind.

Then their is the writing. The chapters are divided up into POV’s. One chapter we have Calla and then the next is Cage. For some reason the writing felt disjointed, broken, and off. Maybe the off is; because I didn’t care for the story or the characters. Who knows?

Vipers Run was not the book for me. It had several things that didn’t work and make sense to me, so I just couldn’t read any longer. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

DNF at 41% at pg. 148.

  1. Ya, that cover pulled me and made me look at the blurb on the back. I didn’t read any reviews on it and I should have. I got suckered in from the cover and intriguing blurb, but it was a no go for me.

  2. Wow you hung in there longer than I did on my last DNF book! I only read until about 10-15% in and if its not looking good, I bail and move on. Hopefully your next one is better!

    1. My next was much better. I read so far in because they made the print big, not the normal size and so you get farther in just trying to get an idea of the story before you are like nope not for me. ^_^
