Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour.
So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again.
Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself.
But for their daughter.
Christina’s 4 Blush Review
Devney Perry is one author I continue to be excited over and Tattered is just one more example of how beautifully she writes. Unlike her previous books I’ve read, this one took me a little longer to fall in love with but by the end, I was all in.
Tattered is the first book in her new Lark Cove series. Set in the beautiful Montana landscape, Tattered is the lovely story of a young single mom, an unknowing father and their journey back to one another. Perry writes with the perfect combination of sweet/sexy romance, swoon worthy alpha males, small town charm, strong heroines and exciting storylines. All of her books have just a hint of suspense to them and Tattered was no exception. I loved Thea and Logan. My heart really tugged for Logan and the way he became the father he didn’t even know he was. I love how he would bend for Thea and their daughter Charlie, just because he couldn’t stand to be away from them. I also love how Perry writes about her home state of Montana. I love the small town feel to her books and the way all the characters band together to support one another. The supporting characters were just as lovely as the main and I’m excited for this new Lark Cove Series and the next book- Timid!
He stared at me for a long moment. “You’re sure she’s mine?”
“Then that’s good enough.”
“I—really?” I blinked. He didn’t want to verify paternity? He just . . . trusted me?
He nodded. “Really.”
“I swear, I tried to find you, Logan. On my life, I swear it. But the hotel wouldn’t give me your name no matter how much I begged. And you paid cash for your drinks and never mentioned your last name. I tried, but I just . . . didn’t know where to start.”
“It’s not your fault. I believe you.”
The sincerity in his voice made my throat burn. Goddamn it. I was going to cry.
I’d worked so hard not to cry today. I’d fought to keep my emotions in check and my head from spinning out of control. But this was going to make me break.
I wanted so badly for Logan to believe that I hadn’t kept Charlie from him intentionally. The fact that a man like him would trust someone like me without proof meant more than he’d ever know.
“Thank you,” I choked out past the lump in my throat.
“So, um, is Charlie inside with your husband? Or boyfriend?”
The urge to cry disappeared and I barked out a laugh. “Smooth.”
He chuckled. “It’s been a long day for me. Give me a break, will you? This morning I was in New York, then I came to Montana for a business meeting and discovered a daughter. I’m off my game.”
