REVIEW: Riven Knight by Devney Perry
Genevieve Daylee didn’t expect to be standing in front of a judge on her twenty-seventh birthday.
But ever since her life became entangled with a former motorcycle gang, she’s learned not to expect anything but trouble. Her mother, a woman she once admired and adored, is gone, leaving behind a trail of secrets and lies. She’s living in a tiny apartment above a garage owned by her brother, a man who loathes her very existence. And the father she met beside her mother’s grave is as much of a stranger as Isaiah Reynolds, the broken man with soulless eyes standing beside her in front of the judge. Isaiah is her protector from the murderer at large in Clifton Forge. Though he’s more like a riven knight in dented armor than a prince on a white stallion. She knows next to nothing about him, other than he works as a mechanic. As of tonight, he’ll be sharing her bathroom. And, according to the judge, Isaiah is now her husband.

Riven Knight is the second book in the Tin Gypsy Series and centres around Isaiah and Genevieve. It picks up right where Gypsy King finished. Isaiah and Genevieve are thrust together into a marriage of convenience to protect them both from the outcomes of events that occurred in Gypsy King, book one in the series. They barely know each other but must work together to solve her mother’s murder and prove to those around them that their marriage is real and that on that mountain they really did fall madly in love. Lying to those they care about doesn’t come easy to either of these characters, nor does opening up about their true feelings and desires to each other. Isaiah was a complicated character with a hell of a back story who during his time in prison has lost his love for life and who also doesn’t believe he deserves happiness. He’s living a half life in the shadows of those around him. Genevieve is a tortured character who’s torn between the mother she knew and the mother she’s only recently discovering truths about. Learning that not only is the father you never knew alive and suspected of your mothers murder but also that you have two older brothers has thrown Genevieve through a loop and left her confused, angry and desperate for answers. Riven Knight is full of Devney Perry’s trademark angst, compelling and complicated plots and multi-layered characters that pull at your heart strings. I always love starting a Devney Perry book because I always know I’m going to get high quality writing that sucks me in from page one. Riven Knight was so like Gypsy King with the intrigue and suspense and then so not with the completely different character development. Riven Knight answered questions from Gypsy King and then still left us with so many more that will hopefully be answered in Stone Princess. I’ve never been a lover of MC Romances, but Devney Perry has such a unique take on them that has captivated and trapped me! I’m so desperate for Presley’s story in Stone Princess!

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.
