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.
I found myself a new favorite author!
Romantic, romantic and romantic. This book is the definition of romance.
Thea meets a hot guy in a bar. Ends up with more than she bargained for and SNAP, they meet again after 6 years. Thea and the hot stud, Logan, are forced together by fate and struggle to find a way to create a new future.
Did I say that I loved `Tattered`by Devney Perry? Because, I do. I love how relatable the story is ( because I´ve seen it happen more often than I´d like to admit ), I love how lovable the characters are, and above all… I loved how the characters tried.
Thea never had an easy life. Logan never needed to ask for anything. Both characters couldn´t have been more opposite from one another. Different lives, different worlds. And still… for the sake of their daughter ( 6 years unknown to Logan ) they made the impossible possible. Or, at least, they did everything in their power to make it happen.
`Tattered` is a relationship romance, built on a one night stand and sky rockets from there on. The dual POVs helped heaps in understanding both sides, making it hard for a reader to see any major faults in character choices.
I felt for Thea. I understood Logan. I wanted both to get what they wanted. I desperately needed to see those two find their happily ever after, simply because they were worth it.
Things I fully appreciated
- The writing. The author has a soothing writing style that makes a reader crave more.
- Character development was spot on!
- Story unravelled at a perfect pace.
- The struggle.
Things I could have lived without
- Logan´s family get-together
- The threat.
While I do find this to be a perfect read ( for myself ) I also found myself thinking about certain events that occurred in the story and if it would´ve been better if the author had left those events out. In my humble opinion- The story on it´s own without the added threat and without Logan´s family introduction scene, would have been just as powerful. I didn´t care much for said threat and I certainly found the Kendrick family a tad over the top.
But that´s just me and my picky self talking. I´m sure others will appreciate the dramatic scenes I could have lived without.
Would I recommend this book? Definitely! This is my second Devney Perry read and I couldn´t be happier. It´s a romance. What´s not to love about a wonderful romance?
Would I reread this book? Sure! I´ll probably give it a reread before I start the second book in the Lark Cove series.
The Cover – 4 stars ( It´s pretty. Subtle and just plain pretty.)
The Story- 4 stars ( A wonderful romance I can´t complain about, aside from the mentioned above.)
The Characters – 5 stars ( Oh, how my heart bled for the MCs. So much love for every character in this book. ❤ )
My emotional state after finishing this read – So content. So excited to discover more Devney Perry treasures.
