Review: Timid by Devney Perry

 

Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

Review:

Willa Doon has swooned over Jackson Page from the moment she saw him 9 years ago.  She has never been bold and Jackson has always looked through her.  But, when one night changes everything Willa has so much hope.  Only to be dashed by Jackson the next day.  Jackson can’t believe he’s never truly noticed Willa until he saw Thea’s drawing of her.  He knows she has been haunting his dreams and he needs to know her.  What he doesn’t expect is that Willa has given up on him and wants nothing to do with him.  Jackson will have to work for her heart.  When he finally gets it will he break it because of fear or will he embrace what could be?

Oh my goodness!  This book was phenomenal.  I couldn’t put it down.  It will make you swoon and completely fall in love with Willa and Jackson’s love story.  It truly is an epic one.  Willa really comes into her own.  She is a very timid and shy character.  Though the depths that she has is shown when she finally fights for what she wants.  Jackson is no longer the playboy.  He is so much more.  These two are a love story that anyone would give to have.  It feels real and true.  With this also comes great side characters.  We get to have Hazel, Thea, Logan and Charlie back.  We also get to meet Willa’s parents who are definitely people anyone would want to have in their lives.  Devney Perry does it again.  She manages to leave you speechless with the power of the emotions she writes.  I can’t wait for the next book in this series.  Lark Cove has easily become one of my favorite contemporary romance series.  If you need to fall in love, pick up this series.  You will be swooning and begging for more.

Excerpt:

I scooched my chair in toward the table, trying to put a little more space between Jackson and me, but he wasn’t having it.

He put both hands on the back of my chair, then leaned in close. “Hi, Willa.”

“Uh . . . hi.” I shivered at the heat from his chest on my bare shoulders.

Why was he standing so close? My parents were right there. Our table was one of four tall, square ones in the center of the room and there was plenty of space between tables.

Plenty. P-L-E-N-T-Y.

But was Jackson using any of that plentiful space?

No sirree. He stayed pressed against the back of my chair, like there were only three inches of usable space behind him, not three feet.

My skin prickled he was so close. I tried to nudge my chair forward again but it barely moved. Sweat beaded on my temples and I pulled in a shaking breath.

Jackson’s woodsy, rich scent was everywhere. It overpowered the stale beer, pizza and peanuts, and I inhaled a deep breath, unable to resist.

Sexy Hot Forest. That’s what they’d call his cologne.

Tattered by Devney Perry

 

 

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.

Review:

Thea has had a rough life.  She always saw herself as trash.  That is until she had her daughter.  Her one night of hot sex with Logan gave her the love she always wanted.  Since they decided on an anonymous night she never thought she see him again.  When he sits down at a table at her bar she knows she must tell him about his daughter.   Logan didn’t expect to ever see Thea again.  He knew their one night felt like much more than sex.  Seeing her again floors him and spurs all those feeling back into action.  When the bombshell of him now being a father is dropped he doesn’t know how to react.  The one thing they both know is that they will fight to make everything great for their daughter, but will their relationship grow or fizzle out with the heat that is between them?

I adored this book.  I love Devney Perry as it is but this was a wonderful love story.  The love story isn’t just between a man and a woman but also a mother and daughter and father and daughter.  Thea and Landon are palpable in their sexy feelings and underlying love for each other.  There is also a lot of trauma that they have to fight through to get to the good stuff.  Their daughter Charlie was so awesome.  She is the best tomboy but so very complex.  She was just like any other 6yr old.  If you haven’t read a Devney Perry book yet, you need to pick this one up.  I became addicted to this story.  The characters are complex and enthralling.  The story is memorable and touching.  This book has all the hallmarks of a great book with a great book hangover.

Excerpt:

He stared at me for a long moment. “You’re sure she’s mine?”

“She’s yours.”

“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.”

Review: The Clover Chapel by Devney Perry

Today we have the blog tour for The Clover Chapel by Devney Perry! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!!

Title: The Clover Chapel

Author: Devney Perry

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About The Clover Chapel:

She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.

After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.

Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

Review: 

Emmy has done one crazy thing in her life.  In one night in Vegas,  she became a wife and an abandoned wife all in one night.  Fast forward nine years and Emmy is a new teacher on her own.  What she doesn’t expect is to see her husband, Nick.  The one that left her so many years ago.  As they try to repair the broken relationship and truly get to know each other, strange break ins keep happening to Emmy.  Can Emmy and Nick work out the last nine years or will forgiveness elude them?

I love this second chance romance.  Emmy and Nick were great characters.  The story was unique and very fun at times.  The story was intricate and intriguing.  I did find it a bit long and more complicated than I think it needed to be.  The romance/second chance portion was practically resolved a quarter of the way through.  There were other plot points that moved the story along but it felt like they weren’t intrical to the plot.  Overall, it was a well written book that was both entertaining and interesting.  I would definitely read another book by Devney Perry
