Sweet. Baby. Jesus. Where do I even start to talk about how much this book has ruined me for every other book I’ll read in 2021?!
If you follow the reviews/booktubers/bookstagrammers in Romancelandia – you will have heard of DEN OF VIPERS. Standalone, Reverse Harem novel released by British author; Katie Knight. This book made pretty much EVERY recommendation video I watched, so naturally I became intrigued. I one-clicked the Kindle edition. I started following Katie hard across social media. I made the conscious decision that this would be one of the first books I’d devour in 2021.
THEN came the pictures from readers who had purchased the special edition hardcover releases. HARD COVER. Naturally I needed to get my mitts on this copy – an order was placed and I waited patiently for this to arrive in Australia. Let me first tell you that the hardcover edition is STUNNING! I mean, that cover itself is gorgeous! But then inside the pages…. gorgeous! A great addition to any bookshelf (Katie didn’t tell me to say this by the way!)
To the story itself and OH. MY. SHIT! DEN OF VIPERS covers a wide variety of dark romance tropes (which can also trigger certain readers – make sure you check these out if you’re sensitive to certain material) – we’re talking Reverse Harem, group sex, HARD ANGRY sex, captor/captive, dubious consent, Mafia, blood play, murder…it’s a ride from the first chapter.
What I cannot thank Katie enough for doing is bringing us a female lead character who is not the typical ‘damsel in distress’ – Roxy is a bad bitch and takes shit from no-one. I cannot tell you enough how refreshing it is to read a strong female lead, one who can square up to our Heroes and isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. Those who have read this book will know why ‘I will always love you’ now sits as one of my all time favourite book moments!
I could bleat on and on about this book. About Diesel, Garrett, Kenzo and Ryder. About Roxy. But I won’t – just get yourself this book, get some waterproof knickers, enjoy the ride and then come chat to me after! 🙂
