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.
STILL NOT OVER IT! I think of this book every day, multiple times a day! I can’t get over this sweet story. I don’t really want to move on from it. I fell deeply in love with these characters and their story! It’s so intense, so sweet and heartfelt. I can’t swoon over Tattered enough. YOU NEED THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE. It’s the first standalone novel in a new series by Devney Perry. A must read.

5 “This was Everything” Stars!
To be honest with you, I haven’t read that many surprise baby stories. In fact, it’s typically not my favorite trope. I think I can count on one hand the amount of books I’ve actually loved with this theme and Tattered is most certainly my FAVORITE of them all. I cannot get over how INTO this book I was. I can’t even explain how DEEP and INTENSE the feels are. I wanted to burrow myself into this story and steal Logan for myself. This man, THIS. FREAKING. MAN. He is everything. He’s goodness and sweetness, sexiness and alpha-maleness, ALL THE THINGS in one deliciously explosive package. I died over him. I adored the way Devney crafted this hero. He was such a good person. Inside and out, his pure heart shined, and it was perfect.
Seriously, when it comes to writing romance Devney Perry is a winner at telling a story. Tattered follows Thea Landry and Logan Kendrick. Thea and Logan have a one night stand but never exchange information. Weeks later Thea finds out she’s expecting but unfortunately NYC is a huge and there is no way, despite her efforts, that she can find Logan and tell him about Charlie (their daughter). Fast forward 6 years and fate brings Logan to Lark Cove, Montana on business. He’s a lawyer and a philanthropist and is buying a camp for his family’s foundation. While there he runs into Thea and finds out he’s a father.
And here comes the swoon, people. This type of story line can easily turn into drama for the sake of drama. I mean, I have read some surprise baby books where I felt like the child was caught between toxic parents. And I hate that. Loathe it, actually. But THIS STORY is gorgeous. It’s so well told. Thea and Logan care about their daughter and there is not ONE MINUTE where they don’t put her needs first. My heart whooshed whooshed whooshed for these characters. I felt so intoxicated by Logan because he was such an upstanding guy. He did all the right things. And so did Thea. She didn’t use her daughter as a pawn. These two were responsible and thoughtful and respectful and this story felt incredibly realistic.
Reading the way Logan treated Thea and his child, seeing his heartfelt desire to be in their life, to make a mark, to form a long lasting relationship with them was bliss. His connection with Thea is deep and tangible, wholly palpable and there was no doubt in my mind that these two were destined to be each other’s.
Overall, I more than loved this story. I felt captured by it. Once I started reading, I didn’t want to put it down. And man, did I ever have the mother of ALL BOOK HANGOVERS when I finished. I couldn’t get passed it, didn’t want to move on. Tattered spoke to my heart and is undoubtedly a TOP FAVORITE read of the year. Heartfelt, sweet, tender, and all consuming, this is one romance that absolutely NEEDS to be on your MUST READ list. It’s everything you want in a romance and so much more. I just loved it.
