Stone Princess – Devney Perry

Devney Perry is an author I’ve really come to love. Her Tin Gypsy series took me by surprise and I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Stone Princess since reading Gypsy King and Riven Knight. Stone Princess released this week and I want to tell you all about it!

A big thanks to the author for providing me with an ARC to read and review!

Warning for people wanting to read this book. There is domestic abuse and violence!

Stone Princess – Devney Perry


Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.
Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.
At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.
The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.
But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.

Review

“From here on out, I was the woman with ice in her veins. The woman with a heart of stone.”

Since I started the Tin Gypsy series, I’ve been dying to get my hands on Presley’s story. It’s clear that she has a lot going on and that our other main characters really care about her. So needless to say, I was excited when I knew she was getting her own story! Even though these books could technically be read as standalones, I really recommend reading the first two before diving into this one. You’ll understand the events and some reactions to things going on so much better!

Even though I’ve loved all of the characters so far, Presley’s story has made her my favorite. She’s an authentic character. She may try and hide her emotions from the ones that she loves and love her, because she doesn’t want them to worry. But Presley feels a lot and has been through a lot. She is a person you want in your corner, she tells it like it is and has walls up, because she’s afraid of being hurt again. Presley grows so much in Stone Princess. She really finds her strength and learns to let her walls down and love.

Shaw was an interesting character. He’s a movie star, but I knew from the start there would be a lot more. At first it seems like he’s just there for the movie that will affect a lot of the characters we’ve come to love. I think that is the case at first, but Shaw comes with some baggage himself. Shaw is in the spotlights, but that’s not what’s the most important to him. In this small town he finds something he didn’t know he was looking for. He’s sarcastic, sometimes full of himself, but he has a heart of gold. It was also nice to see that there were things he had to work on as well. Shaw’s background story was really interesting and fit this story well.

The romance was steamy and I couldn’t get enough. Presley and Shaw are so much fun together and I think they needed each other more than they realized. Their banter was fun and it was a nice pace that it wasn’t love at first sight (even if there was an attraction from the start). The small town suits them and I loved the epilogue at the end. Stone Princess left me with a smile on my face.

On top of that, we get to see the cast of characters we’ve come to love from the previous two books. They’ve definitely become family and I love reading about them more and more. Also, I can’t wait for the books to come, because there are so many characters I want more of. If you’re looking for a series with romance, humor, an amazing cast of characters and moments that leave you on the edge of your seat, I definitely recommend Tin Gypsy!

 

Another great addition to this series! Devney Perry did it again. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. If you like books that keep you on the edge of your seat (even though this one wasn’t as intense as the first two) and an amazing cast of characters, definitely pick up these books!
