She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.

After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.

Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

My Review


First off, where does this author get her covers? They're always so stunning!

After reading my first book by Devney Perry, I can understand why everyone has fallen in love with her. She's got endearing characters and a sweetness to her writing that will definitely appeal to the masses. However, I was waiting for that extra push. I kept feeling like something was missing and even when I got to the end, it was nowhere to be found. What that 'thing' was, I couldn't tell you. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but I felt it. I'm a real sucker for a second chance romance story so I just went with the flow and I have no regrets. I was a little disappointed that I didn't get enough of Nick's perspective so that I could really trust and believe in his devotion to Emmy. I have to admit to being a little turned off by him when he spoke of carrying a torch for her throughout the years and actually felt guilt whenever he was with another woman, but he didn't justify any of that. So getting inside his head more may have helped. Or maybe it would have hurt his case. Luckily, I'm not the writer.

This was an okay read, but it definitely let me see the potential of this author. Will I try her again? Most definitely! I've actually got a signed copy of Tattered on my bookshelf waiting to be read.
