Tattered ~ Devney Perry ~ New Release and Review

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.

        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.”

I think this might be the best “surprise baby” book I’ve ever read.
Okay - never thought I’d say that!
I really did enjoy the set up of this book. A memorable one night stand, not enough shared information, and fate steps in 6 years later.
Thea, Logan, and Charlie are characters that pulled me in and got me invested in how they were going to make their unique situation work.
I think one of the things I appreciated most is that there was very little dwelling on the past or blame placing. Thea and Logan both owned who they were and what they did that lead them to the present and worked to move on. Combine that with the fact that both of the adults made the child in the equation the center was something sweet to see. The Charlie/Logan storyline was a key piece to this book for me.
Well written and truly entertaining, Thea and Logan’s love story is definitely one to pick up.
There was one little “extra” blip in the story that seemed a little out of place to me, the intrigue element just didn’t seem to fit in the overall tale - that is my one complaint regarding this excellence book.
