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.
Patricia‘s Review – 5 Stars: ☆☆☆☆☆
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Devney Perry delivers a beautifully written story about second chances, love and the most precious gift a human being can have: a child!
I devoured this book. Everything kept my attention, the plot, the characters, the places… it’s just wonderful when an author can bring the places to the reader, the smells, the landscapes, the noises… an author that can do this so perfectly, is a keeper in my book!
Thea and Logan’s love story is beautiful. I loved the way they meet again, after so many years and how they never forgot one another. Logan’s intensity is off the charts hot and I love when a man seeks what he wants. His devotion to Charlie and Thea is beautiful and so emotional, that you cant stop cheering for him no matter what!
Thea is such a strong woman! After everything she went through, she would never accept the easy way. She works for it and only has one thing in mind: Charlie well being!
Charlie is the most precious little thing, a tomboy with a heart of gold and the high point of the book is the way Logan wins her trust and heart!
Such a sweet love story that will leave you with a big smile and a comforted heart!
Oh, almost forgot Jackson, the sexy bartender with a thing for misspelling names 😉 … well, he will be next and I cant wait for his story!
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.”
