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.Goodreads

Den of Vipers may be the most F’d up book I’ve read, and I loved it. This is a dark romance with more violence than I have ever read in a book. I am sure just about every trigger is represented in this book somewhere. This book is very much not for everyone. On top of all that it’s a reverse harem, which I know again is not for everyone. If I haven’t scared you away yet, I think you will really enjoy this book.
Roxy, the heroine is great. She is snarky, strong, and smart and I really enjoyed reading about her. The Vipers are made up for four men Ryder, Kenzo, Garret and, Diesel. This book was told in alternating POVs between the five characters. Usually, five POVs are a lot, but the author does a great job of differentiating the characters so I was never confused whose POV I was reading.
Let me tell you that all five of these characters had some serious issues. Most of them stemming from childhood trauma, this isn’t a pretty or sweet book. This book is about surviving and opening yourself up to love. I really enjoyed all five of the characters, even the ones that I was a little wary of early on completely grew on me.
If you are okay with a lot of violence and don’t have any triggers, then I highly recommend this book.
