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.
A definite page turner
A great story full of amazing characters
Thea has been in love with Jackson since she met him at 16 though Jackson is clueless for years.
Willa seems to be a shy character but she does have a backbone and is stronger then she seems.
Jackson lives his life without relationship except with his made family, Hazel, Thea and Charlie until one day looking at a picture Thea drew of Willa and something in Jackson wakes up!
This is a story of awaking finding strength and learning to go after what we really want. Throw in a twist or two and you have a major page turner and book hangover!
Devney is definitely an automatic click author for me!
Timid by Devney Perry
Timid Lark Cove Series Devney Perry
This is the second in the Lark Cove Series by Ms. Perry and I couldn’t put it down! I love the characters, Lark Cove Bar and the story Ms. Perry weaves around them.
Willa Doon is the director of Flathead Summer Camp, an oasis for kids needing a break from real life. She had saved the camp from closing by finding a buyer, and they kept her on as Director. She has also been in love with the local bartender Jackson Page, since she was a teenager. He barely knows she exists, and constantly called her Willow. A brief encounter on his way home from the bar shakes Willa to her core. He’s attentive and walks her to her door and passionately kisses her. Willa’s first kiss! The next day he remembers nothing. He was drunk and had smoked some weed. Willa was done....time to move on.
Jackson loved his life in Lark Cove. He had moved there to be close to Hazel who had saved him as a teenager. The bonus of Thea, his best friend and Charlie her daughter made life complete. He had occasional one night stands with tourists and that was enough. Suddenly he feels drawn to Willa, shy, quiet and beautiful. He knows she had a crush on him, but when he asks her out, she slams her door in his face. What happened? There are more surprises for Jackson and Willa, some heartbreaking, some dangerous but it brings them closer together. The romance is sweet and hot.
This story can be read as a stand alone, but don’t deprive yourself of the pleasure of reading the first book, Tattered. I am anxiously awaiting the third book in the series, Tragic. Ms Perry is an auto buy for me, her books are always a pleasure to read.
Thank you to the author and publisher for the opportunity to read and review this story, and I also bought a copy for my own digital library.
Jackson and Willa!!!!
Y’all.... just dive in and get ready! It’s a sweet, smart and emotional ride through Lark Cove and you get to experience all of Willa’s firsts along with her. I just loved them together. I wasn’t crazy about Willa’s schoolgirl personality at first, but once you really get to know her you understand that she really is just a shy, inexperienced girl. Her parents are her role models and she holds them on a pedestal in regards to what she wants in her own love life and she lets nothing stop her or change her mind.
Poor Jackson gets blindsided by his instant attraction to Willa and is so confused it’s cute. I love how hard he tried to get her to finally go out with him, but once they got their groove it was so cute.
I laughed and I cried and wanted to throat punch his mom.
I fell in love with Ryder at the same time my heart just bled for him. You will do the same once you meet these amazing characters and spend some more time in Lark Cove.
