Series: Tin Gypsy
Rating: FOUR STARS
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.
I received this ARC from the author for an honest review. Thank you Devney Perry!
Stone Princess is the third book in series Tin Gypsy by Devney Perry. This is the story of Presley and we meet her in the first two books of this series Gypsy King and Riven Knight. Tin Gypsy are series of standalone interconnected.
From here on out, I was the woman with ice in her veins. The woman with a heart of stone.
Presley Marks was left at the altar by her fiance Jeremy and she feels humillated in front of her friends and her town. I liked Presley because she was a survivor and she didn’t let her past define her.
For a while, she hid from the world until she meets Shaw, a Hollywood actor. Shaw teased her and she had fun saying NO to him.
I’d fallen in love with her. I’d fallen in love with her every time she’d told me no, sitting across from her at the Clifton Forge Garage.
Shaw is a sexy actor who comes to Clifton Forge to make a movie. He is funny and sincere and real. He meets a Presley at Clifton Forge Garage and he fell in love with her because she was real and beautiful and protective and loyal.
She was my anchor.
She was my heart.”
Shaw is perfect for Presley because he accepted her the way she is and he loved her. I loved the banter between Shaw and Presley and I love how they support each other and they take their decisions together. I loved how the Tin Gypsy family protect and love a Presley. I love Devney Perry as a writer because she always writes sweet romances with swoony heroes and badass heroines. I recommend Stone Princess if you want to read small town-romances.
Excerpt Stone Princess
My realtor would have earned a higher commission if she had mentioned that the woman who lived next door was Presley Marks. “Isn’t this a surprise?”
“Is it?” Presley asked, frowning as I descended my steps and crossed the lawn, meeting her in her driveway. She raised a dark blond eyebrow. “Because it sort of feels like stalking.”
I chuckled. “I swear I had no idea you lived next door.”
But what a bonus. I wouldn’t have to make excuses to stop by the garage to see her. She could tear that insurance waiver to shreds. Presley had to know I didn’t give a damn about that bike they were building for me.
“You bought this house?”
“Yeah.” I reached for the grocery bags she had in her hands. “Here, let me help.”
She twisted away. “I’ve got them.”
“Come on.” I stepped forward and she took a step back. Wait, did she really think I was stalking her? “I’m just trying to help. I mean, I’ll probably start writing down your daily schedule so I can make sure our paths cross at least once a day. But that’s normal, right? For stalkers?”
“Are you being funny?”
My smile flattened. “I guess not.”
