Tattered by Devney Perry is an adorably sweet, swoony romance with just a touch of suspense.

When Thea and Logan meet one night in a bar in NYC, it's a one night thing. The attraction is instant and they know what they want out of that one night. What they don't expect is a child to come from that one night. When Thea finds herself pregnant by Logan- no last name- she has no way of finding him. Eventually she moves to Montana to be with the only people she calls family. Years late

He’d walked into my bar and claimed it as his own.

 And I was drawn to him, like shivering bones to a warm blanket.

 I guess that was natural. People always wanted what was out of their reach. And this man was so far out of my reach, he might as well be standing on the moon.

Having loved “The Birthday List,” I couldn’t wait to dive into this second chance romance. I expected a page turner, and that is what I got. The prologue was intriguing, which led into an enjoyable plot line.

We first met Logan in The Clover Chapel (Jamison Valley #2) when he was dating Emmeline, I remember feeling sorry for him when Emmy broke up with him for her long lost husband Nick. So anyway Logan is a very well off lawyer who helps run his family business and grew up very privileged.

Thea comes from a different world, coming from a very underprivileged childhood and struggling to get by on tips and wages from her bar keeping job.

Do I think getting pregnant from a careless one night stand is ludicrous? Yes. It’s the 21 century. Unless you’ve been abducted by aliens, I’m sure you can find yourself condoms everywhere or get a prescription for pills. But that little slip up is not important. Because I WAS HERE FOR THE SURPRISE BABY. I’m a sucker for small town romances, and the trope here is too good to pass up.

This thing with us was fleeting. I wasn’t going to move to the city. He couldn’t give up the career he’d worked hard to build. I didn’t blame him for that, but I was being realistic. Eventually, we’d drift apart to where our only connection would be Charlie.

To be honest with you, I haven't read that many surprise baby stories. In fact, it's typically not my favorite trope. I think I can count on one hand the amount of books I've actually loved with this theme and Tattered is most certainly my FAVORITE of them all. I cannot get over how INTO this book I was. I can't even explain how DEEP and INTENSE the feels are. I wanted to burrow myself into this story and steal Logan for myself. This man, THIS. FREAKING. MAN. He is everything.

Overall Opinion: I think I liked the first half of this book better than the second. I really struggled with the added suspenseful aspect (view spoiler) towards the end. I don't even understand why it was necessary. It definitely made my eyes roll! I guess it was to add some more conflict or something, but it felt thrown in and not given the appropriate amount of time to make it work. I felt like the whole book was very surface.

I am always uber excited to start a new Devney Perry story; she has such a skilful talent of telling a story so flawlessly where every aspect seems to flow so effortlessly. I can’t help but be drawn into the world she creates for us to devour. Tattered was no different for me; I loved it so much and was so invested in the story from start to finish. I had those pages flipping at super speed. It was super sweet, romantic, emotional and it melted my heart. The feels were intense and I loved every

Of course the heroine had to be frozen and raising a kid while hero had a relationship with another woman for 5 years and he planned to marry her so he must have loved this woman. My problem with this is the stupid heroine had to be frozen. Really? Really? Get the fuck out of here with this fucking stupid shit.

This book kept coming up in my feed and for the life of me I can’t tell you why I got it in my head that this would have to be a mood read. Maybe the cover or title made me think it would be an ugly cry or angsty read? I don’t know but after finally having read it, I can say that I was totally wrong.

I really enjoyed this book. Logan and Thea always had the chemistry but it was everything else they had to work out. It was nice to see Logan’s growth through his missteps and assumptions. It was go

Tattered is my first introduction to Devney Perry’s writing and I can’t believe it’s took me this long to read something from her!! I fell in love with the small town feel, the laid back but feisty characters, and the bond over family. This story takes you on a journey and gives you a close up look at what means to be selfless and loving. We’ve all had to sacrifice something in our lifetime and this couple was no different.

This book just melted my heart. Being a single mom myself, this book held a bit more meaning for me as a reader. I'm not really surprised because this author truly has a gift for storytelling and she captivates me every time I open up one of her books.

Tattered is about an accidental pregnancy, single mom and a second chance story all rolled into one. The best was due to no fault of either characters for the separation between father and child. You get to learn about these characters an

I’m feeling a little Tattered…

I think romance authors could do us a favour and put a *HORMONAL DISCLAIMER* at the beginning of the book. Maybe something along the lines of…

- If you’re hormonal, please make it known to family members that this book could make you a wee bit emotional.

“Please, don’t take her away from me.”

With her Jamison Valley series and its motley crew of characters that have made us love each new story more than the last, Devney Perry’s books have quickly become synonymous with small town romances that are sexy, charming, and everything in between, and while she continues to spread her wings by crafting compelling, well-written, vibrant stories that never fail to resonate with readers, Perry is once again staying true to her roots.

This book was a delightful surprise, I was meant to take a peek at the first few pages before I went to sleep and ended up getting lost in the book, stopping only when I was too tired to enjoy the read.

This book is a surprise pregnancy, single mom and a second chance story, the writing flows well and the story is an engaging one. The chemistry between Logan and Thea worked well.

(view spoiler)
I tried reading this a while back and stalled around the 40% mark. Timid appealed to me so I decided to finish this one. I had problems ....

I'm not a fan of long separations where the hero moves on and has other relationships but the heroine doesn't. Who says being a single mother means you can't have a sexual relationship? Ridiculous.

This author is quickly becoming one of my go to authors for emotional romance. Tattered is my absolute favorite secret baby romance novel to date. The plot is the best that I've read.
Theo and Logan have a special night together. Their chemistry is undeniable so they give in to the spark. Fast forward a few years and our story picks up with the pair coming together face to face again.
What I loved most was the lack of over the top drama. Granted, there was drama, but not the

Let me just start by saying, it doesn’t get any better than this! I absolutely loved Thea, Logan and Charlie!


Thea grew up being discarded and unwanted. New York was a place of misery and pain. When a one night stand leaves her pregnant she moves to Montana where the only family she’s ever known lives. It is there she begins to build her confidence back up and raise her child.


Logan has bad memories of Montana so he’s not happy about his visit there. However, one visit to the local restaurant/bar
“She was ruining me one kiss at a time.”

When I picked up my first Devney Perry romance, I had no idea the impact it would have on this passion of mine. Six books later and I’m still in awe with every single word. She brings her characters and the towns they live in to life and I would do anything to be able to live in the beautiful world she has created.

TATTERED is a book that you just NEED in your life and you NEED these characters in your heart. Thea and Logan are more than just characters

Secondly, I'm kicking myself for not reading her books before now.

My first book from Devney Perry and it was a wonderful one. I really enjoyed Thea and Logan. Together and as individuals. Thea is one strong and independent woman and who can blame her. Her childhood was rough and had learned her a few lessons. Not to trust people. Her friendship with Jackson and Hazel is heartwarming and they’re her family helping her and her 5 year old daughter Charlie. Logan is a gorgeous and loving man. A philanthropist who’s wealthy but wants to do good in the world. When h ...more

”Believe it. Always believe.”

Logan (33) & Thea (31). Book 1 of a standalone series. Told from dual POV.

Logan: he comes from an extremely wealthy family and is a lawyer in New York. He’s also Chairman of the Board for the Kendrick Foundation (the family’s charitable organization).
My first impression of Logan: he exudes confidence and has a rich elegance about him. He seems like a good guy and has a heart for doing the right things. I might have started my swoon really ear

This is one of the authors that has been everywhere in the last year or so and has exploded into an "it" author. The popular bloggers pimping the books has helped this for sure... Anyway, I was definitely interested in reading her book, I actually own a few, the covers are ridiculously gorgeous. So, I definitely liked it, it was an easy read/listen.

“Good night, Charlie.” I pulled her closer into my side and kissed her forehead.
“You’re coming back?”
I rested my cheek against her hair. “I’ll always come back for you.”
“Logan,” she whispered when I pressed even closer. “This is stupid.” Still, her hands came to my waist, gripping my shirt.
“You’re probably right. But I’m going to kiss you anyway”
