He’s the only man my father can trust when the cartel attempts to take us out. A vicious motorcycle gang member, he’s deadly with his fists and firearms.

He’s also the bastard responsible for my mother’s death.

I’m the one who’ll make him pay. A too-young, too-innocent woman he lusts after but refuses to touch.

He might believe he’s strong enough to withstand my plans for ret

Start your review of Wicked Warden (Vicious Vipers MC, #1)
Wow ! An action packed story from beginning to end with a hot sexy alpha who is a little bit dark and dangerous.This story was Hot ! like fanning hot !

The story drew you right in and we instantly loved Warden's character with his alpha ways,dirty talk ,possessive nature and perhaps that he was even a little bit broken as his past continues to haunt him.

Shaun and Drew aka Warden's chemistry was hot and I have to say that the love/lust/hate thing going on between them even made things hotter.

Serious daddy issues!
Shaun has me wanting to redden her backside while educating her on the way the world really works!
I knew some spoiled self-absorbed princesses while I was in college and I believe Shaun just might take their crowns!
How much air is required to keep you functioning?
Now that I have that off my chest I can only hope she matures greatly as this series continues - Because, the rest of the cast?
Spot on! So want to be a part of their world.

HOLY HELL! When I read the description for Wicked Warden, I was very intrigued, but little did I know that it would blow me away like it did. The kickoff to a new series, Vicious Vipers MC, was next level, and I'm over the top excited for more! Drew is Warden, who has a past which isn't so pretty, but nowadays, he's not doing badly, though he does need to let some things go for full happiness. Anyway, he has his own company, which protects people, not to mention, he's risen in ranks in his MC. H ...more

The Vicious Vipers in going to be the MC series for 2020 of that I have no doubt.

Wicked Warden is everything you could wish for - dirty (in the best possible way) brutal and a great story line.

This story starts of on betrayal - that of young 16 year old Drew (warden) that feel in love with his best friends girlfriend but she only had eyes for his friend Ben and at 16 the two had a daughter together Shaun all three managed to stayed together and Drew became the body guard of mother and daughter b

Can I first just commend author Lynn Burke for jump starting 2020 with one SWEEEEET MC series!!
Wicked Warden is one hell of start and Drew AKA Warden is just the type of alpha man we all want in our dreams. Now Shaun on the other hand, she is one pretty princess who needs an eye opening experience in my opinion. Enough of that...
The Warden is the reason Shaun's mother is dead. He let his best friend down and wasn't there the night Joanna was killed. He was suppose to protect her and little Shaun

Shaun and Drew, what a pair, Shaun hates him because she believes he is responsible for her mother’s death. Drew feels responsible for that but once he gets a look at grown up Shaun, he wants to claim her.

It gets even harder for both of them when her dad leaves her with Drew to protect her. What happens is a clash of wills, a clash of love/lust. This story is full of tragedy and danger, a lot of sexy scenes that will have you fanning yourself. I can’t wait to read about the other characters.

She lost her mother as a child and she blamed the very man her father placed her in custody to before he left for revenge. Warden could not believe the woman before him she looked exactly like her mother and it looks like deja vu only this time Warden is going to make sure that Shaun stays safe. This thrilling story grabs you from page one and will have you on the edge of your seat for the entire reading of this one!

I'm very conflicted on how to feel about his book , I thought it was interesting but it took me some time to connect with the characters . This is a good introduction to a series I'm looking forwared to what's to come . Wicked Warden would be the first story that I've read by Lynn Burke and I can't wait to read more by this author .

I could not put this book down and when I had to I was mad because it was getting so good but I had to put it down. Drew and Shaun will steal your heart.

Gritty Story of Struggle and Romance!

A turf war has a dangerous man hiding his daughter with a man who may have caused her mother’s death. A complicated web of relationships and connections. Scintillating, emotional and entertaining.

My first read from this from this author, and I was very pleased. Can’t wait for more!

This is definitely an action-packed book! I really liked the MC world the author created. The tension between Drew and Shaun is so thick. Going through the story as the world gets more dangerous for her and then having these deep feelings really works.

This was a good MC read. It had all the things I enjoy with a level of ruthlessness that was fantastic. It also had something that usually doesn't happen to me, a heroine that I just did not like. She had a level of selfish immaturity that I couldn't really get past. I would recommend it this book for MC lovers. ...more

Drew, aka Warden, is the enforcer for the Vicious Vipers MC. He’s called upon to protect the daughter of his ex best friend, the friend whose wife Warden is responsible for getting killed. Shaun tried to use this new temporary alliance as a way to get back at Drew for her mother’s death.  Their story is a type of sexy taboo that is hot as hell. Drew isn’t just alpha in everyday life, he’s a complete alpha in the bedroom and will leave you needing a new pair of panties. He has the patience of a s ...more

Shaun is dealt the blow of a lifetime when her dad takes her to Drew for protection. She hates him with all her being. Can she get to know him without hurting him? This book is fabulous. The writing is awesome and the storyline will keep you on edge.

Hot, sexy read

A gripping violent and sexy story about Drew and Shaun. Now at an age when they can both give in to their desires as well as trying to hide from a bad guy!

What a book! First by this author but certainly not the last as I’ve already purchased the next ones in the series. Fast paced, action packed all the way through. I’ve missed reading a good MC story with grit and action to it, this had it all and more. Great character development and good depth to them, even the club brothers. Loved the angst between Warden and Shaun, both not wanting to admit the attraction between them what with the age difference but also the history between them. Some grueso ...more

Eh.... not my fave MC story. I'm always icked out when one of them have had a sexual relationship with a family member and when he said she looked like her mom...yeah, ick.

Too insta for my tastes ( but if you love insta-love then this one is for you )

I'd read this author again with a different story, this was more of a me problem.

Recommends it for: MC romance, vigilante romance
If you enjoy hot sizzling chemistry in a forbidden love tale, laced with an enemies-to-lovers flare, then you will LOVE this book. Drew is the Warden, a member of the Vicious Viper motorcycle club, and a group of no-holds-barred Alphas who are a lethal combination when they work together. By nature Drew is protective and possessive and will do anything to protect his loved ones. Shaun is a spoiled college brat, a rich daddy’s little girl, who happens to be the daughter of a kingpin. Drew has his ...more

Shaun, the daughter of a strong man who made his own laws and enemies wasn't easy. Most thought all the money made her life perfect. When your dad had high powered enemies, sending bodyguards with you everywhere wasn't the way I wanted to live. But his enemies took her mother from them and her father wasn't letting it happen to Shaun. She kept trying to get her freedom if only for a little while. Until the night it all changed. His enemies caught up to him and they ran--to the man she used to co ...more

This is the first of the books in the series and having read the whole series now (through book 4), it's probably the book I liked the least. The series definitely gets better as it goes along. The characters seemed more mature (particularly the female characters), I was more invested in them and the MC's overarching conflict with their mafia rivals. The author seems to be finding her "voice" as the series goes on and really hits her stride in the third book, but I still liked Warden and Shaun's ...more

When the Past Comes Back

Years ago Warden had a best friend and a girl he loved…one little problem with that was that his best friend also loved that girl and they had a baby. Warden stayed by his best friend and watched the little girl grow. Fast forward some years and his best friend which he hasn’t seen for years is now is a kingpin with all kinds of enemies, his lost love is dead because he wasn’t there to protect her (which was his job) and little Shaun is now grown up into one sassy and bea

Too Horny Porny and Corny

I love hot erotic MC books just like any other red blooded woman. But this one, had a weak backstory , which apparently connected the 2 main characters and I honestly did not feel the connection between them even though all they did was screw throughout the whole book.

The story was just weak. There needed to be more character build up and the bratty girl and alpha man who chases her trope was just redundant. The plot was simply; Girl gets out of car, he gets hard and de

I usually really enjoy Lynn Burke's stories but I must admit that I struggled with this one. I loved the premise. I love meeting the members of the Vicious Vipers MC. I love the action. But I did not care for Shaun. I know she is young but she was no where near mature. She was stuck in being free but all her attempts did nothing but place others in danger. In spite of my feelings for Shaun I enjoyed the world Ms. Burke is building. The members of the MC we have met are least to ...more

This is my first book by this author and I can’t believe I haven’t read her sooner!! Her characters are well developed and the storyline is intriguing and suspenseful. This story is laced throughout with enemies to lovers and some forbidden love. Drew is the Warden of the Viscous Vipers MC and with all alpha men he is protective and possessive. In comes Shaun, she is a rich spoiled college kid and her dad asks Drew to help keep her safe. He reluctantly agrees because of the history between him ...more

Well what can I say about this thrill ride of corruption, betrayal, and secrets. So many things going on this book that Lynn Burke neatly presented it with a HOT red bow!

Shaun has serious daddy issues and behaves like a spoiled rich girl with a chip on her shoulder. Her tantrums and immature actions really test Warden and his ability to keep his promise to Ben (Shaun's father ) . Warden who has regrets from his past easily tames Shaun and helps to make him deal with his secrets from the past.

Okay, this story just sucked me right in. Shaun and Drew are both strong characters. When Shaun's dad asks Drew to watch over her because he is afraid she will be hurt, Drew reluctantly agrees. He loved Shaun's mother and was devastated when she died years ago and now he can see that Shaun is just like her mom. Both struggle with their feelings but when it comes down to it, Drew doesn't want to let her go. When the enemy gets her, he will do whatever it takes to get her back and this time, he's ...more

Not everyone's cup of tea. Wicked Warden was a good book. I liked many aspects of it. However, I feel I should put a disclaimer that this will not be everyone's cup of tea.

Wicked Warden is about a girl whose life is turned upside down once again. Thrust into a situation she doesn't want, she makes due with what she has. What if what she has is more than she thought?

There is dynamic characters, good writing, and some flaming heat in this book. I liked the book overall, but would probably not rea

I love Warden, he's sexy, rugged, misunderstood a little bit but he is an over protective alpha biker through and through. Now Shaun on the other hand is a mess, She's A brat that gets everything she wants and revenge on her mind, but she's also misguided but for some reason Warden fells hard. They have that I hate you thing going on but they make a perfect match. I'm looking forward to hearing more about their relationship in the near future. I love author Lynn Burke, she has the abili
