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 picks up right where Gypsy King left off and I’m happy to say Perry answers all the questions she left us wondering about in that first installment. Genevieve and Isaiah are sweet together. I enjoyed both of their characters and felt that together they had a caring and committed connection. I will caution readers that this is a very slow burn romance. For me the pace of first half of the book was too slow. I understood the plot but didn’t really feel any urgency to it, certainly not to the level I did reading Gypsy King.
What I did really enjoy were the relationships between Genevieve and Draven, and then further along, Genevieve and Dash. Perry excels at making those connections in a way that feels both meaningful and realistic. Riven Knight delves a bit deeper into the past of the MC and for me it felt a bit too surface. I would have loved more edge and angst to the story. In the end I was satisfied with the conclusion.
