Tattered by Devney Perry @devneyperry @InkSlingerPR #BookReview

Delighted to be part of the blog tour for this wonderful second chance romance💕

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.

My Thoughts

4 Second Chance Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is my second book from Davney Perry and she is definitely being added to my favorite romance writer list! The most important thing for me in a Romance is compelling and well develop characters, and without a doubt the characters in this book are compelling and well developed! Also like a plausible plot with a touch of angst, This book had a wonderful plot and not very much angst, but just enough for me! It is also a bonus when the book has a beautiful setting, and I really think Montana fits the bill, a beautiful state!

Thea was such a strong sassy character, I really adored her…. Thea never had all that much as far as material goods….. so after a one night stand with the wealthy Logan she really thought they’d never see each other again… A few weeks after their fling she regretted the fact she did not have his phone number, because she found herself pregnant…. now fast forward several years and Thea and Logan run into each other again this time in Montana… Logan is a strong charismatic man with a bit of an awkward side, he was quite shocked to find out he had a daughter….

The real beauty of this story is that both Thea and Logan put their daughter Charlie first…. Logan really embraced his role as father and you could tell that regardless if things worked out between Thea and him he was going to be there for the long-haul… loved the development of the relationship between Logan and Thea… loved the character development in Thea throughout the book… and absolutely loved every minute these two spent with their adorable daughter, it was quite touching!

Absolutely recommend to fans of a second chance romance with some pretty spectacular characters💕

He stared at me for a long moment. “You’re sure she’s mine?”

“She’s yours.”

“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.”

This Little Piggy by Rob Ashman @RobAshmanAuthor @Bloodhoundbook #BookReview

Happy hump day all! Welcome to my stop on the blog blitz for this intense crime thriller! Many thanks to Sarah for my invitation and to Rob Ashman for his twisted story!🖤

unnamedThis Little Piggy

Kevin Palmer is a regular sort of guy, or he was until his life fell apart. His wife, his money, his business and his reputation are all taken away from him. He tries to fight back and ends up in prison.

There he concocts elaborate fantasies to wreak vengeance. He is sent to work in an abattoir and the final piece of the jigsaw falls into place with chilling consequences. Then a cruel twist of fate changes everything.

DI Rosalind Kray is battling her own demons having returned to work following a brutal attack. She finds herself on the trail of a sick and twisted killer and cracks the macabre pattern of murders. But her boss is unconvinced.

Kray has Palmer squarely in her sights. But he has other ideas …

Can Kray break him in time to save the final victim?

Time is running out.

My Thoughts

4.5 This Little Piggy Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5

… and this little piggy cried wee wee wee all the way home!

A serial killer obsessed with vengeance and a nursery rhyme… a damaged detective consumed with justice… a perfect recipe for a wonderfully dark crime thriller….

This was one dark and twisted book! Told from the point of view of both Rosalind the detective and Kevin the killer…. Rosalind is damaged having just survived a brutal stabbing and the loss of her husband… Kevin has lost everything his wife, his business, his pride, and now he is set on revenge…. oh what a crazy twisted ride he took us on! Murders mimicking the popular nursery rhyme…. down to the eating of the roastbeef, and the collecting of the toes…. this book is definitely not for the faint of heart, there is a splash of gore throughout…. The way the victims are murdered emulates the slaughtering of a pig… not a pretty sight….

Really loved the investigation in this book, and the twists and turns it took…. I really thought for a hot minute were heading in an entirely different direction…. I also always love being in the mind of the killer… and Kevin was exceptionally twisted, and yet sympathetic…. The only very minor complaint I have about the book is I would have liked to have established a better connection with Rosalind… but perhaps in a future book? Can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us next….

Strongly recommend to fans of a dark crime thriller with an exceptionally manipulative serial killer…

Author Bio:

Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.

Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.

It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.

When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.

Rob published the Mechanic Trilogy with Bloodhound Books in 2017 and will be releasing three new books during 2018. These are titled: Faceless, This Little Piggy and Suspended Retribution.
