Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.
Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.
Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.
A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.
Let me start by saying Timid is hands down my favorite Devney Perry book. I’ve read and loved every book she’s written, all of them have been all time favorites for me, but Timid blew everything out of the water! I’m going to do my best to explain how much this book hit me in the feels and made Jackson my new favorite hero but I’ll be honest and say I don’t know enough words to describe how incredibly awesome this book is.
Willa and Jackson have got to be the sweetest couple ever. Even with all the emotions that occasionally had me shedding tears, these two are so beautifully sweet my heart was in a constant state of melting. The love these two have is nearly indescribable it’s so wonderful. Stronger than anything thrown at them Willa and Jackson have a love that is so deep it takes your breathe away!
Even with the beauty that is Willa and Jackson there’s still plenty of moments that keep you on your toes as these two navigate their way through their new relationship. It’s not all smooth sailing and life throws up more than one hurdle, but what makes these two so special is how much they’re willing to fight, grow, and overcome for each other.
I absolutely cannot wait for more in this series!
“Oh.” She tucked a lock of hair behind her ear. “What, um . . .” Her fingers fiddled with the clip on the board. “What’s up?”
“You read my note?”
She nodded. “I did.”
“Good.” That meant we could move on from the whole me-calling-her-by-the-wrong-name thing and get to the days where she wasn’t slamming doors in my face. “Come to the bar and have dinner with me tonight.”
“Was that an invitation or a command?”
I shrugged. “Does it matter?”
She frowned and I knew immediately that wasn’t the right thing to say. Without a word, she marched toward the building between the bunkhouses marked SHOWERS.
“Hey, wait!” I ran after her, but she was walking fast. “What about dinner?”
She didn’t answer. She just kept on marching all the way to the women’s side, disappearing inside without hesitation.
I guess my note hadn’t worked after all.
I debated going inside the showers but didn’t want to terrify a young girl if Willa wasn’t alone. So with a grumble and a kick at the dirt, I went back toward the parking lot.
I didn’t miss Hazel watching from a window in the lodge, laughing her ass off. At least I was entertaining her.
She’d be in for another show soon, because I’d be back again tomorrow.
