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.

In Gypsy King, Devney Perry introduces us to Clifton Forge, Montana—a town that is small, but thrives with secret histories and untold stories centered on its dismantled motorcycle club, Tin Gypsy. Intertwined with an undeniably thrilling mystery and intense, suspense-filled atmosphere, this author created a near flawless enemies to lovers romance that held my undivided attention.

We’d rid the world of evil men, even though we’d been devils in our own right.

Former MC President, Kingston “Dash” Slater is charming and protective—a dangerous, irresistible combination that will send your heart soaring and incite stomach-induced fluttering butterflies. Once unaffected by misconduct and lawlessness, Dash’s traded in criminal behaviour and now manages a humble, honest mechanic shop.

Passionate and resolute, Bryce Ryan is determined to create a headline that will enrapture her audience and escalate her career status. Bryce’s adamant attitude to succeed combined with a considerable strength and formidable stance creates a fierce, but stubborn contender. However, underneath her persistence lies a fast witted and loving woman with soft understanding.

We’d only shared a single kiss, but he was right. Given the sparks that crackled when we were in the same room, we’d be incredible together. The chemistry, mixed with our mutual dislike of one other, would ignite like fireworks. We’d probably set the sheets on fire.

Dash and Bryce have a connection constructed with indescribable, heated chemistry and fortified by an inevitable transition into reliance when they focus on unravelling a murder. I love the zeal; the fervent hate to love and slow burn romance they cultivated and allowed to flourish into something profound.

I have minor issues with this series’ introduction—the rushed romance; Dash’s unrealistic personality change; and the unresolved murder conclusion. Gypsy King isn’t that dark and the motorcycle feature is limited, but this author’s writing is flawless and her ability to weave a narrative deserves to be recognised.
