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.

Megan’s Review

“Head to toe, Kaine Reynolds was magic.”

If there is one author I can always count on to deliver an exceptional read, it has to be Devney Perry. I have loved each and every story in the Lark Cove series. Tragic, I would go as far as to say is my favorite, but I think I might just say that after every Devney Perry book though. It was just such a beautiful and profound story that I felt so deeply. I love to escape the reality of life and submerge myself into Lark Cove, a mountainous town I have grown to know and love.

Kaine Reynolds is a broken and tortured man who wants nothing more than to be a recluse, completely withdraw from society and run from his tragic past. I love nothing more than to read about tortured heroes and I was drawn to Kaine instantly. I loved everything from his grumpy nature, his broodish demeanour and his desire to escape, with loss and pain his only companions. That is until boisterous and lively Piper plummets head first into Kaine’s world.

“A man could disappear into those eyes. He could get lost and never want to be found.”

I absolutely loved Piper and she is quite possibly my favorite heroine of Devney’s to date. I just fell in love with her loud, colourful, charismatic personality and her whole outlook on life. She was like a beautiful breath of fresh air. She was the light to Kaine’s dark and everything he never knew he needed.

“This cake was magic. Any remaining anger or frustration or irritation evaporated. It was just me, Piper and the best cake I’d ever had in my life.”

The intense physical and emotional connection and chemistry that slowly built between Piper and Kaine was nothing short of beautiful. Neither Kaine nor Piper were expecting or even looking for the other piece to their tragic puzzles, but more and more they grew to crave and depend on each other. They were truly meant to be; a tortured and broken man and the hopeful woman set out to save him.

Tragic will make you laugh, cry and everything in between. In true Devney fashion the writing flowed seamlessly and captivated me instantaneously. She has added yet another book to my favorite stories of 2018 list as she always has a masterful way of weaving magic into every story she creates. I loved both Piper and Kaine and wanted nothing more than to see them get their long sought after HEA. This story really showcases the beauty of love and how when you learn to give your heart to someone, you can finally begin to heal. If you’re anything like me and love a tragic and tortured hero who will melt your heart and make you fall in love, then I could not recommend Tragic enough.

“I want you to always remember that you saved me.”
