Series: Tin Gypsy #1
Published by Devney Perry LLC on October 29, 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
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.
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Devney Perry is such a brilliant story teller! Gypsy King is a fantastic series starter full of mystery, suspense, and sizzle!
I cannot say enough good things about Devney Perry as a writer. Her writing is captivating and her stories are evocative. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book as it seemed a bit different than others I’ve read by her, but it did not disappoint!
Gypsy King — book 1 in the Tin Gypsy series told in dual POVs — is primarily an enemies to lovers, small town, contemporary romance. There are MC elements and the plot involves a murder mystery, but I — personally — would not categorize it as either. The banter is on point, the mystery is intriguing, the suspense is intense, the chemistry is undeniable, the romance is hot…this book has a lot to offer and is absolutely unputdownable! The pace is slow and steady, but I had to keep reading.
By the end, I adored the characters, but they took a minute to grow on me. I’m not even sure I can pinpoint what I wasn’t fond of at first with Bryce because her character is everything I usually love in a female lead — feisty, determined, not afraid to stand her ground, but has vulnerabilities — but I just didn’t click with her right away. Dash is gruff and sexy! I was missing a bit more grit with him, but I still really liked him. AND THEY ARE SO GREAT TOGETHER!
Some things are left hanging, but I hope that means the overarching storyline will continue into book 2…which I need…now!
Overall, Gypsy King is another amazing book from Devney Perry! Fans of swoony, mysterious contemporary romances definitely want to pick this one up!
