Review: Timid - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

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.

Timid
By Devney Perry

Review: Timid

Devney Perry continues the Lark Cove series with its second installment—a story about a timid girl who falls for the man of her dreams at just seventeen. He barely notices her though, not only then, but year after year as she quietly pines for him from afar.

One night changes everything, however, and suddenly the future brims with possibilities.

“After years of watching and waiting and hoping, Jackson had finally noticed me. Me, the shy girl who’d loved him from a distance.”

But just as fast as her dreams begin to soar, they’re dashed when he fails to remember what happened between them… moments blurred by a bender of heavy drinking.

Willa Doon has had enough—she’s done with playboy bartender Jackson Page, done with hearing him call her by the wrong name, done with being forgotten and ignored.

But there’s something about Willa that has finally caught Jackson’s eye. It’s not just her beauty, it’s more, and he’s intent on convincing her to give him a chance.

“I’d known Willa for years. I’d seen her face. Yet still, I’d missed her. How had I missed her?”

Their story is anything but easy. She’s had her heart and hopes broken one too many times. He’s fractured by a troubled childhood, full of fears and insecurities too difficult to admit.

While Willa is normally quiet and unassuming, she’s also spirited and relentless, determined to show Jackson he’s deserving of love, entitled to his own happy ending.

Devney Perry excels in bringing these small-town romances to life, both heartfelt and sexy, and with a thread of suspense woven through the narrative to kick up the pace. Charm and magic grace the stories of those who we’ve come to know in Lark Cove, and Jackson and Willa’s romance is no different. It will draw you in and hold you close until the very end.

“I’m not bold. Or daring. But you…you were my risk.”
