REVIEW – TATTERED (Lark Cove #1) by Devney Perry

SYNOPSIS

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.

4.5 Second Chance Stars *****

Nothing better than a second chance love story. Devney Perry’s enthralling writing style made me feel the beauty of this story chapter after chapter, so much so, I never wanted it to end.

 

 

Thea is a bartender at a prestigious hotel in New York City. Her life has been a constant struggle since her drug addict mother left her as a baby. She’s had to suffer the pains of being an orphan, and the constant feeling of being less than, every day of her life.

One night a handsome stranger that she’s served at the bar before, strikes a conversation with her and before she even realizes they are flirting, taking their sexy conversations and turning it into a night neither of them will ever forget.

Logan is a millionaire and workaholic, the pressure of one day becoming the heir of his family’s empire has only served to increase the drive, and thirst he’s always had for success. He hasn’t been very lucky with relationships. His last, played him for a fool, cheating on him when he was ready to propose to her.

Logan is in Montana closing a business deal when he runs into the one girl he was never been able to stop thinking about. What he didn’t know is that Thea is going to turn his entire world upside down. Can Logan and Thea reconnect and perhaps recreate the perfect night they had years ago? Or will everything crash and burn from the moment they see each other again? Read this story and find out…

This book is sexy, romantic and well written. I love the mild angst and the realness of the characters. I’m excited for this book to be turned into a series and I’ll be sure to read every single book.

*****4.5 STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

This thing with us was fleeting. I wasn’t going to move to the city. He couldn’t give up the career he’d worked hard to build. I didn’t blame him for that, but I was being realistic. Eventually, we’d drift apart to where our only connection would be Charlie.

 

 

TATTERED is an equally steamy and angsty second chance romance. From the first page, you will be drawn into this tale of complicated love with all its twists and turns. Devney Perry has quickly become a ”must read” author for many readers. I can predict that the ”Lark Cove” series will be another fan favorite.

Thea and Logan meet one night in a hotel bar in NYC. Thea works there part-time as a bartender and Logan is the devastatingly handsome man in a dark tailored suit that gets Thea’s heart racing. Logan and Thea have major chemistry and share one passionate night together. Although they go their separate ways the next morning they will find it quite impossible to forget the night they shared. Turns out it’s much harder on Thea, seeing as she winds up pregnant with Logan’s child. Unfortunately, the two don’t reconnect as quickly as we’d like since neither last names nor phone numbers were exchanged and after several months of hoping to run into Logan at the bar she works at, Thea decides to move to Montana to be with people she considers family who she knows will support her during her time of need.

 

 

Nearly six years later, Logan and Thea cross paths again when he happens to be in her hometown in Montana trying to finalize a business deal. The chemistry is still strong between them and fortunately, they’re both unattached. Thea has put all her efforts into raising their daughter, Charlie, and running her “adopted” Mother’s bar/restaurant. No man has ever piqued her interest the way Logan had.

Logan is a very successful lawyer and he also helps run part of his family’s corporation. He’s a workaholic and has also not had much luck in the relationship department. From the moment he sees Thea again, he can’t help but feel drawn to her. But he’s in for the shock of his life when he comes face to face with a five-year-old precocious little girl who also turns out to be his daughter—a daughter he had no clue about.

 

 

The two struggle with their new situation and also with the attraction that still burns hot between them. Thea desperately wants Logan to choose her and Charlie over his life back in NYC, but she is convinced that she is not enough to keep him satisfied and eventually he will leave her behind. She had a very hard childhood and she has severe abandonment issues. Logan is career driven and has never had to compromise in his life. He’s used to getting what he wants. He’s about to find out that he’s no match against Thea and Charlie’s stubbornness.

This book was hard to put down. I have to admit that while I truly enjoyed the story, both the Hero and Heroine annoyed me almost the entire time. I felt Logan was overly selfish and not the least bit sensitive to his daughter or Thea’s needs, and while Thea was somewhat firm with Logan, I do think she needed more of a backbone.

This is the perfect summer read!!

Here are my overall ratings

Hero: 4
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
