I freaking love Devney and when I found out she was writing an MC romance I was so excited. I love Devney’s style of writing and I knew her doing MC would blow my mind. Just from the cover and blurb alone this story sounded amazing and right up my street.
In true Devney style, her characters were well written and the attention to detail with the character traits shone through. The storyline flowed well, leaving us with a few questions that I know will be answered in the next book. I have to say that Gypsy King isn’t a typical MC romance, where they are usually heavy on the club and danger, this story focused more on the after life of a club disbanding. Now don’t get me wrong, Devney was able to write a story that took us on a wild ride that left me feeling wind swept.
Devney knows how to write strong, independent woman and our heroine Bryce fits the criteria perfectly. Having returned home she is on a mission to find out the real reason why the Tin Gypsy’s shut up shop. I instantly connected felt connected with Bryce, she has that stubborn streak and drive to get the story, that I loved. She knew how to stand her ground and often got the better of our alpha hero Dash.
Dash (such a swoon worthy name) is your lowkey alpha, who is just trying to keep a live a quiet life after all the drama and illegal activities he performed for Tin Gypsy, that is until his father is arrested for murder and a sexy journalist starts asking too many questions. This strong, fierce and protective character gripped me from the start.
Together Bryce and Dash were explosive. You could feel the instant chemistry from their first meeting and the constant one up man ship game that they played, lead to some laugh out loud moments. When they finally put their heads together and work as a team, you can feel their relationship develop into this all-consuming love affair and I bloody loved it.
This was a great story and a new style of writing from Devney that I adore. I can’t wait for book two, Raven Knight, when I’m hoping we find out more details about Dash’s dad and the new couple. Overall, this was a great start to a new series, while it’s not your typical MC romance it still has the edginess, grittiness and strong characters that you often find with MC romances.
