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.

Once again Devney Perry delivers a book that pulls me in so deep I completely forget where I am. Or that I’m an actual adult human who should be doing responsible adult human things instead of being curled up in the recliner I stole from my husband and not moving for hours on end. Tattered completely captivated me and kept me spellbound from start to finish. Devney takes one of my favorite tropes, surprise baby, and makes it into a deeply emotional and moving journey that just takes your breath away at the sheer beauty of her words.
More than just a simply sweet romance, although there’s plenty of sweetness in there, Thea and Logan’s story is filled with so much more. Family, love, belonging, and true happiness all play huge parts in the beauty that makes Tattered so wonderful. Coming from two completely different worlds Thea and Logan still have a deep connection that can’t be denied even after only one night. The intense feelings between them only grow stronger when they come together again and Logan discovers they have a daughter. With the beauty that is Thea and Logan and the absolutely heartwarming relationship that builds between father and daughter with Logan and Charlie it was easy to find myself completely lost in this book.
Thea and I had agreed on just one night. One incredible night. The next morning, we’d walked away from each other with no strings attached. She’d gone back to her life. I’d gone back to my hectic work and social schedule, just glad that I’d had the chance to meet her.
What I hadn’t expected was for Thea to pop into my thoughts so often after that night. I’d think of her smile whenever I was at a hotel bar. I’d think of her laugh when I was at a boring fundraiser. I’d think of her whenever I saw a woman with long, sleek dark hair.
After months of her on my mind, I’d finally given in. I’d gone back to the bar to see her one more time.
Except she’d been gone.
With my child.
I’d waited too long.
