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.

This one picks up from its previous book, Gypsy King, except it switches to Genevieve and Isaiah. We got a picture of something hinky with these two in the first book. Now we find out what exactly happened with them and what is to come with them.
I was engrossed in this one from the first page. I will admit, there were a couple times where it slowed a bit for me, but those parts didn't take away from me enjoying this story.
This book is one big awkward situation, and in some cases, a seemingly impossible situation. These two are determined to keep their secrets, while trying to keep Genevieve's newly found father out of prison for murder.
This book is full of suspense and mysteries from the previous book slowly coming out. The turns this book took was a ride in itself.
The slow build of a romance is exactly what I needed. It wasn't instant. And it wasn't always pretty. It was the perfect blend of torturous and sweet. Both characters' inner struggles were raw and real.
I am really looking forward to the next book. While the mysteries from the first book have been tied in a bow in this book, we get some new little mysteries that the next book will solve.
