TRAGIC by Devney Perry
Lark Cove Book 3
Release Day – NOVEMBER 13th
Kaine Reynolds wants nothing more than solitude. After an unthinkable tragedy destroys his family, he’s cut off all ties to his former life so he can battle his grief the only way he knows how.W
So when Piper Campbell knocks on his door, rambling on about being his new neighbor, he slams the door in her face.
But Kaine’s gruff demeanor doesn’t scare her. She’s set on living in Montana and starting over after a terrible divorce. And she wouldn’t mind having a fling to chase away the pain of her husband’s betrayal. Her handsome, albeit rude, neighbor is the perfect candidate.
Yet what neither of them suspect is that their no-strings affair will result in the surprise of Piper’s lifetime—and Kaine’s worst fear.
I was besotted with this story, with the characters. Piper and Kaine are both so darn likable you can’t help yourself but to want nothing but good things for them. I can’t even tell you how many times I had this sweet little smile on my face from the way these events unfolded. My heart expanded and sighed all on its own which is when I started to recall the title of this book that was completely enchanting my heart... Tragic... and I knew I was counting down the pages until Devney Perry switched it on me and I’d be left sobbing instead of sighing.
So it didn’t take much until my heart was breaking right alongside the characters. Poor Kaine has so much fear... he’s so scared to live life. The fear makes life seem impossible for him and he hides himself away in Lark Cove too scared to live. Piper is so charismatic and I seriously want to be besties with her. She’s one of the most forgiving and loving characters. Her heart is way too large for any of the tragic things that happened through her life. I so related to Piper. I’ve been in her shoes and had her heartbreak.
I really really love the way Devney Perry creates her story. She creates her characters and slowly... ever so slowly her characters develop these stories and back-stories that are so relatable and beautiful. With Tragic, I fell completely, hard, and instantly for the characters just to have my heart broken and fixed, just to have Ms. Perry break it again and heal it again. Go into Tragic with timid (no pun intended there) little steps... it’s a beautiful story but it’ll hurt a bit but it’s so very worth it. Devney Perry reminds me time and time again why I love romance, especially when characters get a second-chance at happiness. Tragic has all the feelings all tied up in one heartwarming story about forgiveness and family.
I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
