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.
“I just poured my heart out and he’d taken it in his hands and squeezed it to bits.”
“She was important. She was special and precious. And I had the power to destroy her.”
“Silence was my armor. Because if I cut myself open, I’d never be able to sew the wounds shut.”
“Genevieve had the power to destroy me completely.”
“Isaiah looked into the mirror and saw everlasting broken pieces, but maybe my broken pieces would fit
with his. Together, maybe we’d make a whole.”
When I finished Gypsy King, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Riven Knight. I had a million and one questions about Isaiah and Genevieve and couldn’t wait to find out my answers…
Riven Knight picks up right where Gypsy King left off and took my heart for one wild, heart-breaking ride. Riven Knight follows the story of Genevieve and Isaiah. At first glance, their situation appears to be nothing more than a marriage of convenience, a lie. But there is so much more to Genevieve and Isaiah’s story than meets the eye. They did what they did keep each other safe and to hopefully put some ghosts to rest. But, what they didn’t count on was the very real danger Genevieve would be put in. They didn’t count on their walls being shattered and for feelings to stir. Will Isaiah be able to keep Genevieve safe? Will Genevieve break through Isaiah’s walls and bring him back to life? Will Genevieve ever find out who murdered her mother? Those questions and many more will be answered in Riven Knight.…
Riven Knight is a well written and heart-breaking story. This book hits the ground running and never looks back. The characters are real and flawed and perfectly imperfect. Their story-line is captivating and will have you begging for more. There is romance. There is drama. There is danger and action. There are shocking twists and turns that will leave you hanging on every word. Riven Knight was everything I wanted, needed and then some. This book isn’t just a love story. It is a story of family. A story of hope. A story of forgiveness and revenge. Genevieve and Isaiah were both broken and hurt by their pasts, and I for one couldn’t help but root for these two to find their happily ever after.
There’s not much else to say about Riven Knight other than I loved it. From beginning to end, I just loved it. I had the best time getting swept up in Genevieve and Isaiah’s story and can not wait to see what Devney Perry has in store for us next.
