The former Tin Gypsy motorcycle club has everyone in Clifton Forge, Montana convinced they’ve locked their clubhouse doors and ripped off their patches. Everyone but Bryce Ryan. There’s more happening at the club’s garage than muscle car restorations and Harley rebuilds. Her instincts are screaming there’s a story—one she’s going to tell.
As the new owner of the small town’s newspaper, Bryce is hungry for more than birth announcements and obituaries. When a woman is brutally killed and all signs point to the Tin Gypsies, Bryce is determined to expose the club and their leader, Kingston “Dash” Slater, as murderers.
Bryce bests Dash match after match, disappointed her rugged and handsome opponent turns out to be an underwhelming adversary. Secrets are exposed. Truths defeat lies. Bryce is poised to win this battle in a landslide.
Then Dash breaks all the rules and tips the scales.
One kiss, and she’s fighting to save more than just her story. She’s fighting to save her heart from the Gypsy King.
Gypsy King is the first book in Devney Perry’s latest series, and boy was I really impressed with this one. I honestly didn’t know how this book would turn out to be honest, I knew she would be able to handle the small-town aspect since that is her true talent but when it comes to authors like this you just never know with motorcycle club themes, because its one of the most difficult to write I imagine. But this story turned out to be so different from what I was really expecting it to be and in the end, I was in love with it. Now I do want to put it out that this is unique and definitely won’t be what you are expecting but I was in love with it all the same.
Our story sets off with our heroine, who has returned home and is working with her father as a journalist. She had a big life in the city but now she is falling in love with being close to her family and the small town she never imagined she would enjoy living in. But when something happens, Kingston, the leader of what was the “Tin Gypsies” a motorcycle club, is accused of murder, Bryce is determined to get to the truth despite her attraction to Dash, the son of the man being accused of murder. But as they come to an arrangement, the truth starts to become deeper than either of them imagined, and they have a killer on the loose, secrets are being revealed and truth ends up hurting familial bonds….
Gypsy King was a fabulous book here and I really was in love with this story in so many different ways. Now first I want to say that there is a connection between this book and I believe “Clover Chapel” which features this family of Tin Gypsies. So I was delightfully surprised to realize the connection to the two series. I always loved Dash and really was *crossing fingers* in hoping that this author would cover this and she really did and boy was I thrilled beyond happy that it happened. So now we see a deeper relationship into this complex family. We see how its been a few years since Nick and Emmeline have gotten married so we see the brother bond between these two has grown.
Now let’s talk about the delicious romance that is in this beautiful story …boy I simply loved this one. And whew these enemies to lovers was EPIC, because the sexy angst was to die for in so many ways and I was delightfully surprised in what I found between this couple. And literally they are on the opposite ends of the spectrum and yeah Dash is a bad boy in some ways but honestly, I think Bryce deserves some of it. They both lash at each other, so I think they are both guilty but boy is it fun to see them become entangled and figure out this complex relationship they have going on. It does start out as a bit of a fling and then turns into something much deeper.
There is a strong suspense element that is introduced into this story and boy the mystery and intrigue elements really worked for me and made me realize how much I have missed reading romantic suspense (I hardly read any in 2019—gonna change that this year though) but yes even though there was some not so big shockers, its not super predictable either. I do guarantee that the plot will keep you on the edge of your seat as the murder mystery unfolds for the reader
Overall I found Gypsy King to be a remarkable beginning to this new delicious story….a romance packed with new heights and delights, guaranteed shivers and senses while reading this one.
