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.
Working in a bar leads you to cross paths with many interesting characters. The night that Logan walked into the bar where Thea worked, sparks began to fly. The connection that was felt between the two was instantaneous. Both agreed to a night with no connections. No last names or personal information. Just a onetime occurrence for the night.
Nothing from that night spent with Logan was regret. What Thea never imagined possible was an attachment from her time with Logan that would last a lifetime. An unexpected pregnancy leaves Thea wondering how she can possibly find the man that still haunts her dreams. With no last name, no identifying information….Thea’s search proved no leads into Logan’s whereabouts.
With all avenues exhausted, Thea decides to pack up her life in New York and head to the countryside of Montana. A place where Thea could receive the support she needed to raise the child that would never know her father. Time passes for Thea and Charlie, but nothing removes the wish to find Logan.
Years pass and nothing could have prepared Thea for the moment that Logan walks into her bar in Montana. Life just became a little more interesting for the bachelor that discovered he has a daughter from the one night spent with Thea. As Logan tries to navigate through learning how to be a parent, he struggles with balancing his life in NY and Montana. Determined to have a life with Thea and Charlie, Logan tries to ease into his responsibilities while not disrupting the life that Thea has created for her family.
With his attraction to Thea growing stronger every day, Logan desperately tries to find a way to balance family life. So many responsibilities lie on Logan’s shoulders. With his life in New York pushing against the lifestyle Logan leads in Montana, how can he find a way to be a part of Charlie and Thea’s life from afar? Is it possible to have it all? Only time will tell what the future holds.
Tattered is the first book in the Lark Cove series by Devney Perry. It is a novel that dives into the prospect of a relationship that grows from a chance meeting. The ups and downs of the relationship between Logan and Thea will leave you wondering how the two can possibly find a way to overcome all the obstacles between them. Logan’s determination to make up for lost time will set the pace of the book, and leave you hopeful for the couple. Let me say that I absolutely loved Charlie’s character!! What a perfectly captured character that will charm the hearts of readers everywhere.
There was a bit of suspense in this book. A mystery that was woven into the plot in an unusual and quirky way. While it was executed in a unique way, I didn’t feel the premise of this ‘suspense’ even needed to be included in the novel. It certainly stood on its own without the addition of that plot twist. While this was my first book by the author, I can definitely say it will not be the last.
