Sometimes I feel like I’m beating a dead drum because I absolutely can’t get enough of this author and series! Devney Perry is easily one of those authors that’s an instant-buy for me, I’ll read anything she writes. And she brings her game on strong (AGAIN!) with the third book in her Lark Cove series, TRAGIC. I can honestly say that I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one, but it was seriously nothing like I imagined. And I think Piper and Kaine’s story tops as my favorite in this series.
Well, it’s no debate that Devney sure knows how to hit you with the emotional feels where it counts. And it starts off right from the very beginning, so you know that you’re in for quite a ride.
There is nothing quiet about Piper and she just comes storming into not only Lark Cove, but Kaine’s life as well … and I loved every minute of it! A horrible divorce and itching for a new start are what brought Piper to Lark Cove. Ready for that new start in her life, comes a new house with a deep renovation project and a grumpy bear of a neighbor.
When she decides to take a little trek up the mountain trail that’s when she first sees Kaine, wide open, hurting and bearing some sort of pain. Attraction and intrigue hits Piper right in the face. And a no-strings fling is exactly what she’s looking for. But all Kaine wants is complete solitude, but you know a little fling couldn’t hurt, right?
Their story was everything! And my heart constantly broke for Kaine, his story is so unbelievably tragic and heartbreaking. How does someone come back from such a tragic event like the one he endured? Piper entering Kaine’s life was one of the best things that could have happened to him or well for each other. They needed each other to fill that void they both had and it’s absolutely beautiful to watch them fall in love little by little. Witnessing Piper slowly break down his walls was truly a sight.
The one thing that I have to say is that Piper’s ex-husband can seriously go suck an egg! I’ve got zero nice things to say about that guy…
Another Deveny Perry book read and I absolutely can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next … Tinsel! Gimme, gimme, gimme!
