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.

If you love swoon worthy books that Tattered is for you! Devny Perry brings us another great love story that had me falling in love from beginning to end. She is new to me and with this being the second novel from her I’ve read she’s quickly become an author that is automatic for me! Her story flow is just seamless and she just knows how to pull you into her story. Tattered is a great summer read perfect for the beach!
Thea and Logan had a hot one night stand 6 years ago. Now Thea is in Montana living a simple life with her daughter Charlie. Thoughts of ever seeing Logan again evaporated a long time ago when she left New York City until one day when he walks into the bar she manages. In the middle on Montana is the last place she would have thought to see Logan. And the last thing Logan thought when he went to Montana to purchase a kids camp for his foundation was learning that he had a child that he never knew about.
Logan is determined to be in Thea and Charlie’s life. They couldn’t be more different. Thea is easy going and manages a bar in Montana and Logan is all alpha male and a top attorney in New York City. Can opposite attack and how can they make this work for Charlie’s sake? Logan may have missed out on the first 5 years of her life but he’s determined to be a permanent fixture now. There is not doubt the chemistry Thea and Logan shared so many years ago is present but you need more than chemistry to raise a child. Will the country girl who came from nothing be able to make things work the city boy who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth? You will need to read Tattered to find out!!
He stared at me for a long moment. “You’re sure she’s mine?”
“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.”
