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.
5 Star Review by Ashley
Confession time. When I finished Timid, I just sat and stared into space for a solid fifteen minutes. It was that good. From page one, Devney Perry sucker punched me right in the feels and made me root for sweet and shy Willa.
Oh Willa. Quiet and reserved but fiercely loyal. And in love with Jackson Page. The man who got her name wrong. The man who never saw her. Until he did. And when he set his sights on the girl with the golden hair, game on. He was relentless and surprisingly sweet. He didn't know exactly what it was about her but he knew he needed to know her. I loved his small gestures and how they showed a side to him that nobody else knew.
I've got three words. Jackson's mom- ugh! That woman caused more drama than she was worth. But she was also the catalyst for Jackson slowly letting down his walls. The more I learned about his past, the more my heart just ached for him. In a world where he was always left behind, he had finally found someone that would stick, Willa. She saw him. His fears and she refused to let him hide behind them. Oh no, when it mattered, she was a fighter and she played to win.
With more than one unexpected twist that had my head spinning and stomach churning, I couldn't put Timid down. This addition to the Lark Cove series was tenderness and true love to the eighth power. Jackson and Willa's story made my heart bleed and my soul soar. It was everything.
