Kaine Reynolds wants nothing more than solitude. After an unthinkable tragedy destroys his family, he’s cut off all ties to his former life so he can battle his grief the only way he knows how.W
So when Piper Campbell knocks on his door, rambling on about being his new neighbor, he slams the door in her face.
But Kaine’s gruff demeanor doesn’t scare her. She’s set on living in Montana and starting over after a terrible divorce. And she wouldn’t mind having a fling to chase away the pain of her husband’s betrayal. Her handsome, albeit rude, neighbor is the perfect candidate.
Yet what neither of them suspect is that their no-strings affair will result in the surprise of Piper’s lifetime—and Kaine’s worst fear.
Tragic is the third book in the Lark Cove series by the talented Devney Perry. I’m a newish fan of Devney and I’m so glad my blog partner, Sandra suggest I read this series! This is Piper and Kaine’s story and it’s incredibly emotional! Kaine left his old life behind and escaped to Lark Cove. He doesn’t have friends, family or even acquaintances in town and he likes it that way. Then Piper moves in next door. She’s friendly, pretty and wants to be friends. He’s too angry and grouchy to be friends with her. Until Piper won’t take no for answer and her magic cake. One kiss moves them into the benefit category and Kaine forgot how much he missed human interaction. Their attraction is combustible and they try to fight it. It can’t work. Kaine’s past is just too painful and Piper’s past won’t stop haunting her. Together they are magic, apart they are miserable. When their pasts just won’t go away and unexpected news shakes their budding friendship, they have decisions to make. Can they put it all behind them and start fresh? Will they realize they are meant for each other before it’s too late? This story was fantastic! I went through every possible emotion from laughter to tears, from heartache to hopeful. Kaine and Piper’s story is tragic but they figure out they are better together. Love and friendship heals broken hearts. I can’t wait for Tinsel!
My gaze drifted higher to his face and I licked my lips. Not even my skillet cookies were as mouthwatering as Kaine Reynolds.
