Timid (Lark Cove #2) by Devney Perry @DevneyPerry

I'm so happy, relieved and ecstatic that I adored this book  

So I can say that Devney has really proved that I shouldn't prejudge a book by details that may not be something I'd like. I went into this book with eyes wide open knowing it's going to push me and challenge me. I am a reader who really wants my hero to be loyal and faithful from first sight. That's where Timid gets tricky. That's where Devney said Hey.. What's first sight? Can't there be exceptions? 
So here goes. 
 Facts : Yes Jackson is a playboy. Yes he meets Willa when she's 17 and he's 23. That "meeting" to her meant everything. That "meeting" to Jackson was absolutely appropriately inconsequential because she was too young and Jackson would have been wrong to notice her in any other way than he did.
OK so years go by Willa has a crush. Ok fine. She's off to college and comes back. Jackson still hasn't really noticed her. Then one night. One special and thrilling night gives Willa hope. 

And bam Jackson crushes it. I was screaming at him to wake up. But I felt Devney was saying be patient. Give him a chance. And that's when it happened in the right way and the right time. 

One night a beautiful girl leaps from the pages of Thea's drawing. That moment was the right time for Jackson's heart to notice and his soul to remember and see Willa and this is my exception. This to me is when I felt their meeting truly happened. I adored the way he pursued her hard. I loved that Willa slammed the doors both figuratively and physically many times  and made Jackson work for it.

Willa had a gentle , patient and evidently a forgiving soul. She gave in at the perfect time and I fell in love with their love story truly and deeply.

This story took some crazy twists and turns. What I've mentioned before was basically in the blurb. The rest you'll have to experience amongst the pages. I'll give you some guarantees though. This story is full of love, passion and healing. There's some pretty funny parts too. But then I'll say have some tissues handy. So many feels. 

I really just want to find my own lake side cottage in Lark Cove so I can go to the bar for pizza and listen to the juke box and visit with these vibrant characters. Oh my that teaser for Tragic made my heart pound in all kinds of scarey and thrilling ways. I can't wait.
