I read the first one in this series and was on the fence about a few things, but overall, I liked it. And here I am again, about to say the same thing even though my like is a few degrees less since this is the second time I feel this way. Sexy bad boy biker guys with dangerous entanglements involving their gals? All to the good. But Yes there is a but and I'll get to that.This is the second book in the series. It can standalone in the sense that the main plot thread involves a new story and new [...]
This review was originally posted on Cocktails and Books.As I’ve stated many times before, I’m a sucker for second chance stories and this wasn’t any different. Poor little rich girl falls for the bad boy from the wrong side of town. It’s a story we’ve all heard before, but with a twist. Maddie ran away from her feelings for Tals years ago unable to face staying in their small town and becoming just like her father. Tals knew from the moment he first laid eyes on Maddie when they wer [...]
This was really more like MC Lite version than a true MC book with all the real and not so pretty dealings of MC world. Almost too clean, superficial and idealistic in a sense that those guys in motorcycle clubs are really no angels. Only here, in a weird way, it worked. Not the best writing, some jumping and inconsistencies in story and almost no sexy times, but I liked Maddie and Tals together, especially the retrospects to their friendship in high school. More like 3,5 stars actually, but I'm [...]
A review by The Blogger Girls.Vipers Rule is a good follow up to the first book, Vipers Run. While this doesn’t have quite the excitement as the first one did, I ended up enjoying it just as much for different reasons. This could be read on its own, but I definitely recommend reading book 1 so you get to know some of the other characters a bit better.Here, we have Tals, brother to Tenn, who were both taken in by Preacher and the Vipers when they were teens. Tals is a member of the Vipers and i [...]

Review: Vipers Rule: A Skulls Creek Novel by Stephanie Tyler wp/p3d0RZ-2Ln Genre: Romantic SuspensePublication Date: July 7, 2015Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ DonnaRated: 4 StarsREVIEW: I enjoyed this latest addition to the Skulls Creek series and the hot Vipers MC. Ms. Tyler does a good job of blending all the different personalities into one cohesive group so you believe they've been together a very long time Tals and Maddie were almost a fated couple and I loved how they finally worked the [...]
Can I just say it without doubt or any second thoughts, disappointing ending with the rest being at least interesting enough to keep me second guessing whether Maddie and Tals would ever make it work.
Viper reviewLove the Viper had boys. Bad boys with hearts of gold. As long as you respect the club and the family.
I read the first book in the Skull’s Creek series and have been looking forward to seeing what happens with these men and women who live the MC lifestyle. This second book brings us a bad boy hero and the rich heroine who left him years ago; she now wants to make a new beginning.Maddie Wells is coming home after a broken marriage and career, she wants to reconnect with someone she lost years ago but is uncertain if he will have her. She is willing to face his anger and ask for forgiveness but [...]

Maddie Wells is our heroine, and she returns to Skulls Creek to stay with her grandmother, after leaving her cheating husband and their business.

3.5 / 5 FangsI was surprised with how much I grew to like this book. It took me a little while to get into this book. I found the beginning to be slow moving. I enjoyed the idea of what the author was doing in the first few chapters, but something was just lacking for me. I was happy that the pacing of the book picked up around the 100 page mark. After that, I was hooked on the book. I found the book to then be fast paced and well developed. The only issue I had with the plot was Maddie's romant [...]
* Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review *I was pleasantly surprised by this one! It was quick to pull me in and kept my focus clear through the last page. The characters were well developed and the storyline was one that will appeal to all biker fans. The flow was fast paced and the writing was top of the line. It was a story about getting a second chance at love and while it was romantic, it was also suspenseful and angsty. The book started with playful flirting and a romantic game o [...]
Fun read from new-to-me author Stephanie Tyler. I jumped in with book two in the Skulls Creek series so I did have some confusion on characters and overall storyline but not enough to deter from my enjoyment of this story. Tals is from the wrong side of the tracks, Maddie grew up with all the privileges. But no matter the differences of their upbringing there is a connection that neither can deny. When Maddie comes back to town, fresh from a divorce, she can't deny that Tals is the man she's alw [...]

Now in the process of getting a divorce, Maddie has returned to Skulls Creek, determined to find Tals. Maddie plans to find Tals and get the chance with him that she missed out on in the past. Tals has never forgotten Maddie but he’s not sure he wants to revisit the past, no matter how much he’s dreamt about Maddie over the years. Now with her soon-to-be ex-husband’s sh [...]
Viper's Rule is the second book in the Skills Creek series. Tals and Maddie have a past together that Maddie is trying to reinvigorate by leaving her husband and job while moving back home. I had some trouble with this story. I understood Maddie's need to reconnect with Tals, but throughout the story, Tals seemed to be afraid that Maddie considered him just a fling and would leave again. Maddie's personality and previous life choices supported the idea that she was simply disillusioned with her [...]
Okay, I liked this Skull's Creek book better than the first one. The romance was much more believable. And now I'm even looking forward to Preacher and Holly's story as well as Rocco and Lola's story. This was good romantic-suspense like I've come to expect from ST. Three and a half stars.
Eternal bad boy Talon “Tals” Garrity is always getting into trouble and protecting Maddie Wells may well land him in a whole of it but Tals doesn’t mind playing with fire in this exciting romantic suspense. With bad boys like the ones belonging to the Vipers Motorcycle Club you get a whole lot of sexy, attitude, loyalty and protectiveness – did I mention sexy? (Sigh). Okay where was I, oh yeah, Tals is definitely a Viper cause I tell you he can make the heart pound and his story held me [...]
I found myself really bored when reading this one. I liked Tals, loved how he protected people important to him and loved how he interacted with Preacher. I didn't care for Maddie at all. She was so wishy-washy. She wanted Tals, both in the present and the past, yet she never really stood up for him. I was actually more interested in the side story between Holly and Preacher. I didn't like how things ended there and really hope there is a good reason for things.
Great book! Maddie and Tals are perfect for each other. They have known one another since high school, but haven't seen each other in over 10 years. Things are strained between them when Maddie arrives back in town, but she is determined to make Tals see things her way. He is reluctant after what happened all those years ago. I love Stephanie Tyler's writing and can't wait to read more.
Awesome story I loved reading about second chances with Tal's and Maddie. They danced around each other in high school, Maddie left town at seventeen and came back after leaving her ass of a husband. She came back for Tal's but doesn't expect that big trouble would follow her and try to blow her up. Very good.
only giving 3 stars because of technical hiccups. i'd be reading along, then thinking i must have skipped a page, because it switched to someone else's POV. interrupted the flow. i did like the characters - and i will be reading the next in the series.
Surprisingly good novelLots of good in this novel. Who you believe is the best person for you is not always right because they come from the right side. Sometimes the heart knows best.
I enjoyed reading.
I liked this book but it was like she was trying to do three stories in one book and slopped all of them together.
Truthfully, if you've read all about bikers, steamy sex and dangerous men before - this doesn't break the mould.
I am thrilled with this authors work! I can't wait to read the next book in this series
