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.
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.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
Is there anything Devney Perry can't write? I mean seriously- while Tragic is different from the other books in the Lark Cove series (as in there isn't the heart stopping suspense) it still sucker punched me right in the feels.
I LOVED Piper. She was eccentric and kind and even though she's had her heartbroken, she was living life on her terms. Which included a cross-country move to go with her fresh start. And a neighbor hiding from his pain with his woods and brood.
Goodness me did I LOVE Kaine. His brokenness. His guilt. His anger. His talent. His fire. And how he couldn't stay away from Piper even when he wanted to. Their first meeting was nothing short of explosive. In fact, I liked how they worked backwards. Fire then friendship. It was the in between that struck me the most. Those calm, quiet moments when both Piper and Kaine got to just be that spoke the loudest.
Until they weren't. Holy smokes. Talk about unexpected. Piper had no clue how to handle the news and Kaine was thrown for an even bigger loop. This one thing stilted all the progress they had made. But it also forced them both to make some very hard choices. Forgiveness the biggest of them all.
Tragic was just that, centered around tragedy but what was more, was how Piper and Kaine allowed that to change the course of their life. I enjoyed that there was more than one sighting of the rest of the Lark Cove crew in this book. And how they rallied around Piper and even the reclusive Kaine. Devney Perry took these two beautifully broken characters and gave them what they never dared to dream they could have, magic.
