This book got me hooked from the first pages!! This isn’t my first read of Devney Perry’s books, and I am really glad about that!
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.
Tattered starts with our two main characters meeting at her place of work, where she’s a bartender and he’s a very charming man. Thea and Logan soon share a night together and part ways after that. Play forward 6 years and we find out that she had his baby, without any way of contacting him and moves to Montana to start a new life there. They meet unexpectedly on his business trip there and soon their chemistry returns and they give each other a new chance.
“I’d never forgotten Thea, even after all these years…”
I just love books of second chances and most of all, ones where cute babies are involved. I just love the pace of the story how it unfolds and how they time everything up based on their little girl, Charlie.
“How are we going to handle this?”
Her eyebrows came together. “Handle what?”
“Us. There’s no way I’m not going to kiss you today. I’m wondering if you want me to hide it from her. Or if you’re okay with her knowing that her dad is crazy about her mom.”
Reading about a single mother that managed to start over and be fierce for her baby girl always soothes me and how a father learns to love his daughter so fiercely always make me want to come back reading some more. It also made me a bit happy that Charlie never made it easy on Logan, which made all of it much more heartbreaking to read.
They try to have things started again, but when they can’t find a common ground on who should move where, will everything fall apart? Or will they see that what mostly matters in life is family and loving each other?
