Tragic is the third book in the amazing Lark Cove series by Devney Perry. It can be read as standalone but I do recommend reading the previous books. Each of them is full of heart, emotions, heat, and fun. Kaine is a new character to the series but I did meet Piper in Tattered as Logan’s assistant. This is their story and it’s a rollercoaster.
Piper is the newest resident of Lark Cove, Montana. After her divorce was finally settled after two years she is ready to move on. So she made the move to be closer to Logan and some peace and quiet. Something she never would get in New York City. She buys a house on the mountain surrounded by a forest. Her only neighbor is a grouchy man who piqued her interest the minute she saw him. He was not only hot as hell but he looked pained. She wanted to see him smile. She also wanted to lick him from head to toe when she had finally gotten a good look at him. She didn’t want a relationship but a fling wouldn’t hurt. He seemed like just the guy who didn’t wouldn’t mind just that.
Kaine moved to the mountain three years ago. He wanted the solitude and on this mountain he got just that until she showed up. The woman who had a crew from sun up to sundown renovating her new home. He only saw her once but that was enough to know he needed to stay on his side of the line. That was until he had enough and after he saw her again, he was totally fucked. He wanted her. She somehow made him feel when he had been numb for years. Probably more than ever.
Kaine and Piper’s relationship is complicated. They weren’t looking for even a casual fling but that is where they are. Friends even. They both have pasts they don’t want to talk about. And they didn’t. But what will happen when their pasts collide with Thier futures?
I loved this story! It’s was poetic, tragic, sexy, and emotional. I fell for the characters. Hard. Kaine is a tortured soul. Piper has a beautiful soul. Together, they have to learn to trust, love, and feel. They also need to eat and they do. But, for real, I loved them. I felt for both of them. I wanted to give them big hugs. To be their friends.
Overall… it is the perfect addition to this series. The story. The characters. The passion. The loss. The find. The laughter. Everything. I loved it all. And, you get a preview of Tinsel! I can’t wait to read it. Just that cover was enough to excite me but the tease of the book…damn. I want it now.
A man could disappear into those eyes. He could get lost and never want to be found.
I refused to blink, not wanting to miss a moment of that rare laugh. And I vowed, then and there, to make him smile more often.
“Is there a reason why you’re standing in the baking aisle looking like a criminal in hiding?” With a quick flick, I tipped up his hat, knocking it back so I could see his eyes.

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.
