Riven Knight (Tin Gypsies #2) by Devney Perry #bookreview #romance

Riven Knight

(Tin Gypsy #2)

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.

Genre: Adult MC romance
Part 2 of an ongoing series

My Riven Knight Review . . .

It has felt like for ever sine I read Gypsy King and I have been waiting to find out the big secret of Genevieve and Isaiah.    

We start up where we left off in Gypsy King with a bit of cross over in time in Gypsy King. 
Genevieve and Isaiah are forced to live together as basically strangers but you get to see the slow burn and development of these two getting feelings for each other.  

It took me a bit to figure out that Isaiah is the brother of Kaine Reynolds from Tragic book #3 in the Lark Cove series.   This was great that we got a crossover in the series and we get to find out Isaiah's side of the tragedy even though it took a long time to come out, but it kept me enveloped waiting to find out his past and secrets.  

As the relationship is growing between Genevieve and Isaiah we are also still trying to figure out whom killed Genevieve's mother and clear Draven's name.  

As the story continues we get to know Draven more and get to love him which is gutting in itself when all the truth comes out.    

This book had so much between Draven and Genevieve, Dash and Genevieve, Isaiah and Genevieve and the mystery going on.  The killer was unexpected and written well.   I was on my toes the whole time and couldn't put the book down. 

I can't not wait for more from this series

Credence by Penelope Douglas #bookreview #NAromance


Tiernan de Haas doesn’t care about anything anymore. The only child of a film producer and his starlet wife, she’s grown up with wealth and privilege but not love or guidance. Shipped off to boarding schools from an early age, it was still impossible to escape the loneliness and carve out a life of her own. The shadow of her parents’ fame followed her everywhere.

And when they suddenly pass away, she knows she should be devastated. But has anything really changed? She’s always been alone, hasn’t she?

Jake Van der Berg, her father’s stepbrother and her only living relative, assumes guardianship of Tiernan who is still two months shy of eighteen. Sent to live with him and his two sons, Noah and Kaleb, in the mountains of Colorado, Tiernan soon learns that these men now have a say in what she chooses to care and not care about anymore. As the three of them take her under their wing, teach her to work and survive in the remote woods far away from the rest of the world, she slowly finds her place among them.

And as a part of them.

She also realizes that lines blur and rules become easy to break when no one else is watching.

One of them has her.

The other one wants her.

But he…

He’s going to keep her.

*Credence is a new adult standalone novel suitable for readers 18+

Genre: NA Romance

My Credence Review . . .

It has been a long time since I read anything from Penelope Douglas and what a mistake that was.  This was great I don't know why I took a break from this amazing author. 

Tiernan was the daughter of the Hollywood super couple, but she was also completely alone because her parents cared about themselves not her.  So, when they were gone, Tiernan was left alone with no home and no family besides her mother's assistant Mirai, whom is the closest thing she has to family.

"I'm going to go home,"  I say quietly.  "You are home." He sets a mug in front of me.

Her father's estranged step brother comes out of no where to help her until she turns 18.  It wasn't quite the help I would expect from a step uncle and step cousins but it gave her what she needed in all aspects of her life.

~ I'm desperate for attention and confused. ~

This story line was way outside the box in story telling which I appreciate.  There were times that it made me very uncomfortable with the content but that is okay because uncomfortable is important, because it means you are experiencing the book instead of going through the motions. 

~ Something about this house-these people-lend credence every day to what I always knew I needed.  Not sex.  Not a guy.
Just a place.  Somewhere or someone to feel like home.~

~Because I'm only worth anything if someone wants to love me.
Just like with them.~

Even though the story line was not conventional it sure did have a lot of steam. 

Tiernan was so young and the relationship with the new men in her life was unexpected.   Having Kaleb mute was perfect because it helped the story so much.   Their connection was so visceral and you felt their torment.  It was accentuated because Kaleb didn't talk instead you just felt.

"I go where you go,"

I also liked how it the story ended with no loose ends or awkwardness where there could have been tons from what happened to them all.  This book was so much more than I expected.  It had drama.  It had loads of steam.  It had heart.  It had love.  It had family.

4.5 Unexpected thumbs up!
