bookworm review: the runaway viper by kirsty-anne still (plus an excerpt)

Let me tell you how much I loved this book: 

This book was everything! I absolutely loved it. Great writing. Great story. Great follow-up to Saturdays at The Viper Room. 

This book picks up right after Saturdays at the Viper Room. Jace has rescued Joely and the Bonnie and Clyde couple were living on the run.  They bounced around the world always trying to stay one step ahead of the Devil herself, Clara Delvine. And when Clara found them, you weren't too shocked because you knew it had to happen. Life wouldn't be that easy for them, but what Clara had in store for the lovely couple was shocking. The evil Clara and her horrific henchmen, Sam and Shads, were back at it. Kidnapping. The Pit. Beatings. Unwanted clients. Threats. You name it. Clearly, Clara was upset that her protégé ran away and life at The Viper Room took a turn for the worse. Oh, and did I mention that Joely was no longer the head viper. Someone else took that spot. Someone eager for the spotlight and #1 position. Joely aka the Runaway Viper was now the outcast. Relying on her friends Eli and Brianna and the love of her life, Joely had to fight to remain strong while under the watchful eye of Clara.  Like I said, this book was everything, and I cannot wait for The Viper's Bite, the next book in this series, to come out. 

P.S. I really loved Jace. I applaud him for loving a Viper Girl. I just couldn't imagine loving a prostitute. Her past wasn't pretty, but he loved her in spite of it all. He went through a lot for his love including going to war with Clara just to release Joely from her contract. But like they say, true love is worth the fight, it's the worth sacrifice.

How selfless of him. How romantic.....

I also loved all the sacrifices Joely made to keep Jace safe. She was prepared to give up everything that mattered to her just for his life. 

P.S.S. Clara was one mean lady and tried her hardest to break The Runaway Viper. I cannot wait to see the end of her. She needs something horrible to happen to her in the book and deserves whatever comeuppance she gets. Seeing her nervous and shocked at the end of the book was priceless. One of my favorite parts!! 

I gave this book 5 stars and recommend that you read it. You can buy this book on Amazon,  Barnes & Noble, and Kobo, but first, you should read Saturdays at The Viper Room.

P.S.S.S. This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
