Gypsy King by Devney Perry

Tin Gypsy, Book 1

Synopsis: 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.

Review: I was curious about this novel. I’m pretty curious about biker stories, even though in this one they are retired, it’s always nice to discover the author’s ideas.

Bryce is a young journalist back in her hometown where she works with her father. However, in this town, there is also a former biker club. They stopped some time ago, but Bryce is determined to find out why, even though no one will help her. But fate is about to have its way with her when a woman is found dead and the club’s founder is accused of murder. Determined to find out the truth, she’ll have to team up with Dash, the club’s former president who is as sexy as he is unbearable!

I had a great time with the novel. Both characters are a pleasure to discover. I would have expected something darker but it’s not, which is very nice too. The murder investigation is also exciting and I was curious to understand what happened. However, I was a little disappointed by the ending which falls flat and lacks explanation, but maybe that’s on purpose and we’ll know more in the next volume.
