Overview


The Vipers Motorcycle Club has strict rules for their brotherhood and the women who enter it. Now one Viper is about to find out how much trouble one woman can be…
 
Former Army Ranger Christian Cage Owens joined the Vipers Motorcycle Club for its sense of brotherhood. In return, he pledged to live outside the law, protecting club members and their families, as well as keeping other MCs out of Skulls Creek. But when Cage discovers that a rival MC—one Cage has an all too familiar past with—plans to push meth into his town, he calls an old Army buddy turned private investigator who’s helped the Vipers in the past. By doing so, Cage endangers both his friend and Calla Benson, a woman who works in the PI’s office. Now he’s made it his mission to track Calla down and do whatever it takes to protect her.
 
Thanks to the phone call with Cage, Calla knows she’s formed a deep connection to a dangerous man.  She quickly discovers that although he may live by a different set of rules, Cage is an honorable man who wants to be more than her protector—if only she can accept his dangerous lifestyle.  But Calla comes to Skulls Creek with her own set of secrets…secrets that threaten to tear her and Cage—and the Vipers MC—apart.  As they put their newfound love to the ultimate test, Cage will risk everything he cares about to save her…

Army vet and Vipers Motorcycle Club member Christian “Cage” Owens discovers a rival biker club is trying to push meth in the small town of Skulls Creek, N.C. He calls in a favor from Bernie, an old military buddy turned private investigator. But drawing the other gang’s attention puts Bernie’s employee, Calla Benson, in mortal danger. After a disturbing call from Cage, Bernie instructs Calla to follow the directions on his GPS. When Calla arrives at a Vipers safe house , she soon learns that the bikers’ code of honor will keep her safe from harm—but who will protect her heart when she falls for Cage, or protect Cage from Calla’s own dangerous secrets?

    This was a very disappointing book with poor character and plot

    This was a very disappointing book with poor character and plot development.  I was so excited when I read the overview for this book because sexy, alpha men on motorcycles are one of my favorite types of stories (ex:  see Joanna Wylde's books).  After reading the first chapter, I actually went back and reread it because I thought major parts of that chapter had been deleted because it made absolutely no sense.  How can someone fall in love with a stranger over a phone conversation?  Believe it or not, it gets worse after that.  Don't waste your money on this especially since the e-book costs more that the actual paperback.  There are better books out on the market.  I TRIED TO GIVE ONLY ONE STAR FOR MY RATING BUT B&N WOULDN"T ALLOW IT.

    Not as good as her Defiance Series

    This book was a little more expensive than her Defiance series.
    The storyline was rushed especially in the beginning but I liked Calla and Cage so I stuck it out. I wouldn't pay more $4 for any subsequent novels to avoid disappointment.

    This thrilling action paced takes readers on a roller coaster of danger, romance, drama and passion. Stephanie Tyler has done it again, she’s taken a wild concept and turned into a fantastic woman meets bad boy romance and I was completely captivated from beginning to end with all of the characters and the non-stop drama/action and I can’t wait to read the next one.

    There are not many things in this world that I love more than a

    There are not many things in this world that I love more than a sexy bad boy, and Christopher Cage Owens is the epitome of smexy badness. Good god, the man is pure lust. Bossy, possessive, and protective, with the heart of a teddy bear… geez, seriously I couldn’t get enough of him. Cage is who he is and he’s not willing to change that. Admittedly, he does change his stance on relationships but that’s because the love of his life gave him something to live for... literally. But he’s part of a MC and he makes no excuses about it. He loves his life—good, bad, ugly, and illegal—and doesn’t plan on leaving it any time soon. 

    Now Calla (love the name, by the way) is a whole heap of broken. A traumatic experience in her teens shattered her innocence and her trust in humanity. Then her step brother stole everything from her. And finally what she always believed to be true about her family—her mother and her father—turns out to be less than accurate. It’s a freakin’ wonder the girl is able to dress herself in the morning. But she is. In fact, despite her obvious trust issues and jaded perspective on life, she is surprisingly strong and resilient, although confidence takes a minute. Cage is her saving grace. He gave her something to live for. He’s the reason she is able to feel again. 

    They saved each other. 

    And this story. Holy cow, guys, it’s one thing after another, yet it all ties in. There is so much mystery, intrigue, and emotional trauma… erm… I mean tension, emotional tension. I was glued to the pages. The live inside a motorcycle club is outlined in great detail. I’m gonna throw a curve ball in here—and you’ll have to read the book to understand it—but the whole Jeffrey Harris story line? I did not see that coming. My only complaint is that it ended so abruptly, but then again I can see as why, with Calla’s past, she wouldn’t want to see that part. 

    I am beyond words at this point. There’s so much I want from her on out. Like Preacher. He and Holly? Please. And am I alone in hoping that Jameson Bradley gets a story someday? I sure hope I’m not. So yes, I loved this book. I’m not one to read a lot of m/f books, but this author is one of my favorites all around. And for reasons, such as those that are shown in this book, she will remain one of my must reads. 

    I highly recommend Vipers Run by Stephanie Tyler.

    Vipers Run by Stephanie Tyler is the 1st book in her new Skulls

    Vipers Run by Stephanie Tyler is the 1st book in her new Skulls Creek series. This series is about Motorcycle Club members and the women in their lives. The story starts with Calla, who is hiding from her family working for former Army Ranger turned private investigator. A phone call changes Calla’s life as she knows it, as the man on the other ending is dying, and her boss is not around to help. For whatever reason, Calla feels an immediate bond to the man called Cage, who will eventually survive and become our hero.

    This is an exciting and very hot story of two people so different, each with their own issues that come together for salvation. Because of danger, Calla is sent away by her boss, to a place for safety. She has no idea where she is going, but no knows she needs help, as everything around her is crumbling. When she reaches her destiny, she discovers she is at a MC (motorcycle club), and meets their leader, Tenn. He puts her under his protection, until he can find out why Bernie (Calla’s boos) sent her to them. Weeks go by, and then out of the blue, Cage appears to take her with him. Calla despite her fears, is drawn sexually to Cage, as he is to her.

    They head for Vipers MC, where Cage is a member, though he has been away for a while trying to find information to help his club. During their travel to Skulls Creek, and even after they arrive, the chemistry between Calla and Cage is off the wall sizzling. Cage has to come to terms with his MC brothers, why he left and that he is here to stay to help them. He also knows they will be under attack soon, and with the secrets Calla has of her past, the danger will escalate. Calla has lived with a terrible event that took place when she was only 15, and it will take her love of Cage to help her get past it. Cage has his own issues of his past with his family that will push the danger to the limit. But the brotherhood of Viper MC will stand together against a strong and powerful enemy who want nothing better than to destroy them, and Calla too.

    What follows is an exciting and tense story of a rival drug MC trying to push themselves into Viper MC’s town; of a couple that must reveal their own hidden secrets to be able to fully trust each other; of a group of men and women who will stand together to protect their own. Viper’s Run is also a very hot steamy romance throughout, with a couple that though coming from different backgrounds were meant for each other. Viper Run is filled with suspense, excitement, heated sexual scenes, a great couple, and a well written story by Stephanie Tyler.
