Review + Excerpt Blitz: Tattered by Devney Perry

June 23, 2018



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 is my first introduction to Devney Perry’s writing and I can’t believe it’s took me this long to read something from her!! I fell in love with the small town feel, the laid back but feisty characters, and the bond over family. This story takes you on a journey and gives you a close up look at what means to be selfless and loving. We’ve all had to sacrifice something in our lifetime and this couple was no different. 

Coming from a rough childhood and making something of herself hasn’t been an easy feat for Thea Landry, but she’s done it. Going from bartender to bar owner in the span of six years took hard work and she’s more than proud of herself. But the one person who she wants to make the biggest impression on, is her five year old daughter. One encounter six years ago, changed everything for Thea and with the gift of having a daughter and some memories that lasted only for one night, she’s more than happy with the way her life is now. That is until her walking one stand shows up in her bar completely out of the blue and gets his own surprise of a lifetime.

Logan has gone through his fair share of drama over the past year. Now newly single for the past six months, his main focus is nothing but work, work, work. After looking into some new potential investments for his family’s foundation, he’s suddenly eye to eye with his past one night stand. A one night that he’s always wanted to be more but didn’t get to far. Finally having a second chance to make things right, Logan is fully prepared to being with Thea again. What he’s not prepared for is having a five year old daughter he knew nothing about. With a shock like this, will Logan and Thea be able to move forward ? or will their daughter be the only thing that will hold them together?

First let me say that I absolutely loved the simplicity of these characters!! They were easy going and I just liked that they didn’t need much to make them happy because they were already happy. I also loved the fact that this author made the Logan and Thea’s lifestyles completely different and we saw how they both tried to fit into each other’s world. It wasn’t easy at times and this author never tried to shy away from their struggles so I appreciated. Aside from two issues that bothered me, I really enjoyed this story and I think if you’re in the mood for a sweet, laidback romance with swoonworthy hero, this one is most definitely for you.


 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.”
