Overview

Timid by Devney Perry

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 is one of those books that just wraps you up and doesn’t let you go until the end, and then it doesn’t really let you go then. But, seriously...all of Devney Perry’s books do that to me!!!! This is Willa and Jackson’s story, and what a story it is! The romance begins with Willa many years before it does for Jackson! She fell for him the instant she saw him as a teenager when he first arrived in town. Since then, she has tried to get him to notice her to no avail. Willa, being who she is, doesn’t do anything drastic in that department. She is very reserved and shy...hence the title of the book. By the end, she has grown into a more confident and self-assured woman, not a girl anymore. Jackson has never really known a home until he came to Lark Cove. Hazel, Thea, and Charlie are his family. He is somewhat reserved himself but in a completely different way than Willa. He definitely gets attention with his good looks and his charm, but he doesn’t really allow others besides his inner circle get too close. He is completely clueless about Willa. The guy doesn’t even call her by the correct name. One night, all that changes, and he really “sees” Willa, and it’s over for him. He knows she is special, and he won’t give up until he has her. She will definitely make him work hard which I loved by the way. As with all of Perry’s novels, it’s much more than a romance. There are twists and some angst, but they play into the plot of the book and really make the characters grow into the people I think they were created to be. She always draws me into her books and her characters. They aren’t just fictional characters; she brings them to life.. She knows how to pull at my heartstrings and can make me shed a tear of two, but it’s that emotional connection that brings me back to her time and time again!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed book one Tattered in this series so when I saw book two was coming out I was super excited. I wasn’t disappointed as I loved this story. We met Willa and Jackson as secondary characters in book one. This is their story and what a great story it is. Willa has had a crush on Jackson since he turned up in their little town when she was a kid. Nothing could compare to him. She moved on with her life but Jackson held a little part of her heart. When Jackson sees a drawing of Willa his eyes are opened. He wants her but after a drinking night can she forgive him? A fabulous read of nearly four hundred pages. I started this in the morning and it kept me awake late that night... I just needed to know what was going to happen. Seriously can’t wait to read more of this series.

Jackson & Willa: a HEA like no other! Devney Perry’s books just get better and better! I finished Timid last night and Jackson stole my heart! Willa is an amazing heroine - she gives a new definition to stand by your man and love him when he can't love himself or see what is right in front of his face! It really makes you think – are you missing someone who is right in front of you? Another great read!

Oh hell you guys! Timid is in a close running for the top spot of my favorite Devney book so far! I’m not sure how she does it, but Devney draws me in with every new story she writes! Willa (with an A) and Jackson were under my skin from the very beginning....They have to be the sweetest couple ever! The love the two have is nearly indescribable, it’s so beautiful! Even though their love is so amazing, there’s still plenty of moments that keep you on your toes. It’s not all smooth sailing to get to their HEA! I did not want this story to end. Do yourself a favor and read this book....you definitely won’t regret it!

I am obsessed with Devney Perry, so its no shocker that Timid was yet again- a home run for Devney. I have been waiting for this one since the end of Tattered and I knew it was going to be written about shy Willa and overprotective Jackson. Small town romances are one of my favorite tropes, and that is Devney's specialty, but I was especially drawn to Willa's character. I love a hidden, unrequited love story. Where the hero or heroine- quietly pines away for the other main character- and when they end up falling in love and spilling the beans they've been in love with the other person for months, years- it's legit my favorite thing ever- even more so than small town romances, ha!! Willa has had a crush on Jackson- who is oblivious by the way- for years. Mostly just pining away from afar, and trying to get him to notice her. He only notices her when he sees a sketch of her- and has to meet this mystery woman, whom he already knows. jackson is a little gruff around the edges and doesn't believe he is worthy of love. So Willa has to try that much harder. I loved her "timid," nature- but also her inner voice telling her she had to go for it. their story is one I will not soon forget. Devney's knack for not only making the main characters stunning as well as the side characters- is why I read her books. that a fabulous hometown feel, and definitely her attention to detail- with a great flow, is the reason she is one of my favorite authors in the reader world today

Willa and Jackson were awesome in their story. I love the setting of the small town in Montana. I was a little unsure at first if Jackson would redeem himself. He did and the story did not disappoint. Jackson ended up being a wonderful hero! Buy this book, you will not regret it!

Just when you thought Devney Perry’s books couldn’t possibly get any better along comes Timid. Timid is Willa and Jackson’s story. We met them in the first Lark Cove series book Tattered. This is a love story that spans over years it pulls you right in and you don’t want to stop reading until the last page is turned. I have read all of Devney Perry’s books and each new one becomes my favorite. This book lived up to all my expectations that I had. I can’t wait for the next book to come out. If you haven’t read any of Devney Perry’s books please run don’t walk to get your hands on her books you will not be sorry.

Oh my goodness. I loved every freaking word of this book! I wanted to keep reading but I didn’t want to keep reading because I never wanted this book to end. I got so immersed in Willa and Jackson’s story that before I knew it the book was over. But I LOVED it. I loved how every single page kept me hooked and I just kept wanting more of Jackson and more of Willa. Just an utterly perfect, romantic, and fun story. Devney is hands down one of my all-time favourite authors, and I don’t think she’ll ever write a book that I don’t love!

This is the second book in the Lark Cove series and this one is definitely my favourite of the two! I absolutely loved Willa and Jackson and their story was really fun and super sweet without being too sickly!! Willa has been in love with Jackson since she was 17 years old and first spotted him when he moved to Lark Cove to help run the bar. Ever since then she has watched him from afar, never being noticed, but always dreaming that one day she would end up with the beautiful man. Having moved away for college, and now older and back home, she is working at the summer camp whilst Jackson is still at the bar. He is just as handsome as she remembers. Then one night Jackson gives her something she will never forget, something that will forever be carved into her memory, her dreams and what she has always wanted. Only Jackson does forget... totally... to the point that he can't even remember Willa, let alone what they shared!! When Willa realises that she needs to start moving on and forget about Jackson, that is when Jackson finally notices Willa. He starts having flashbacks, but Willa is determined not to be treated that way again. She certainly makes Jackson work for it and I love that about her. Timid little Willa is actually stronger than she looks! And when Jackson's past comes back to haunt him, that is when they are really tested and their strengths and weaknesses are uncovered. This story was brilliant and as always Devney Perry manages to captivate me with her wonderful writing and descriptive words, sweeping me up into the lives of all of those in Lark Cove. This was a wonderful story and Jackson and Willa's journey is one you definitely need to read!

Two words come to mind when I think of Timid. And those words are "Pure Perfection." I had been really wanting Willa and Jacksons story since the middle of Tattered. I couldnt wait to get my hands on their story and see what was up.This book lived up to all my expectations I had of it. I laughed, I got emotional, my jaw was left on the floor a few times, and when it all ended I had the biggest smile on my face. Again, her characters become your friends, Perry does such a fantastic job of potraying the surrounding area, you feel like you're living in Lark Cove, and you find yourself wanting more stories as you keep reading and meeting new people. I'm so glad there is more to come in this series, because this book definitely left me wanting MORE! And can I just say that short story at the end?!?! AMAZING! Devney gives her fans what they want, and we love her for it!!

I think all of us can relate to having a teenage crush on an older guy. Only in Willa's case she's never got over it. She's written many journals about thoughts, feelings and sightings of Jackson. He just about crushed her when he didn't remember kissing her. What I find interesting is when Willa is ready to give up on Jackson and move it's almost like he's struck by lightning 'seeing' Willa. One of those situations that someone is always there but you never actually see them. Jackson has never had an issue with women and just can't figure out why Willa won't go on a date with him. I really love how these two develop as a couple. There is a great build up. There was just something about Jackson and Willa that I really connected to. Willa comes across as almost a shy person that lets her friends run over her. She definetely proves she knows how to stand up not only for herself but for her relationship with Jackson too. Through Willa Jackson starts to realize he is worthy of love and to believe in love. Timid is book 2 in the Lark Cove Series but I think it can easily be a stand alone but I, personally loved revisiting and catching up with everyone. It was like visiting with friends. This is wonderful series that I thoroughly enjoyed and I can't wait until the next one. The author has a great way of writing that pulls a person into the book that makes the reader connect with the characters on a deeper level.

When Willa & Jackson were first introduced in Tattered, I knew they would get an amazing story. This story was not only amazing, it was a perfect 6 star that exceeded my already high expectations. Willa has been crushing on Jackson since she was 17 yo. He showed up into town and it was love at first sight for her. She waited and waited. Now years later he takes a notice to her but she’s upset and turns him away. He will have to work hard to win her. Many obstacles will be thrown in their path. This storyline was amazingly executed to get me hooked from the first page to the very last one. This story was devoured in a matter of a few hours. I loved the characters very much. I can’t wait to read more from this series. This is the second book in the Lark Cove. I think, it can be read as a standalone. But for better enjoyment read Tattered first. Told in a dual POV with an HEA. I strongly recommend this story.

Every time I finish a Devney Perry book, I think "This is definitely my favorite of hers, there is no way she can top it!" but as usual I am proved wrong when I pick up her next book. This story was amazing! When we met Jackson and Willa in Tattered, I was so anxious to hear their stories and it has exceeded all my expectations. Willa is a sweet and, obviously, timid girl who has loved Jackson from afar since the moment he showed up in town and Jackson is basically a man who avoids emotional attachments due to his past. I truly can't say enough about this book. We see these two characters both grow in powerful ways. This story has everything that I love, plenty of angst and plenty of heat. Devney will continue to be an immediate one-click author for me and I can't wait to see what she writes next!

I absolutely loved Jackson and Willa! Jackson is the bartender and Willa runs the summer camp. She is shy and has been secretly in love with Jackson since he came to town when she was 17 and he was 22. Will Jackson ever notice the timid Willa before it is too late? This book will keep you turning the pages into the wee hours of the night! Devney, your writing just keeps getting better and better! 5 amazing stars

Timid by Devney Perry is the second book in her latest series, Lark Cove . Willa and Jackson's story is heartwarming and endearing and frustrating at times because, you know, men! Ever since getting a small teaser of Willa's story at the end of Tattered I have been eagerly awaiting this release. I was NOT disappointed! Willa has been in love with Jasckson since she first set eyes on him. She may have been 16 and he way too old for her at the time, but it was teen-love at first sight. It also never went away. Into adulthood, Jackson Page was her crush, the example to which all other men were compared, and everyone was found wanting. If only he could remember her name was Will-A not Will-OW it would be a good start. When he completely forgets their kiss, her FIRST kiss, she is done with Jackson Page. The past years of crushing be damned. D O N E, done! Jackson is terrible with names and once he learns one it sticks, even if he learns it wrong, as he did with Willa all those years ago. When he keeps having these vivid dreams of a blonde haired beauty and a kiss on a staircase he thinks he is going crazy until he sees his best friends sketch of the girl from his dreams. None other than Willa. How is this possible? Now knowing that his dream woman is real he sets out to pursue her but when she shoots him down EVERY SINGLE TIME he has to wonder why? The steps it takes for Willa and Jackson to go back to kissing and loving and letting each other in are what makes Devney Perry one of my favorite authors. Every word has a purpose, every twist has a reason. Well-written, well-paced and perfectly plotted this was another fabulous five-star emotional read! Enjoy!

I love the shy girls in books and that's not something you see often! I absolutely fell in love with Willa and her quietness. Jackson is perfect for her even if you didn't think that at first. Devney Perry's writing makes you so emotional and you're just drawn into the story like you know these people and want the best for them. Can't wait for Tragic (Lark Cove #3) in November!

We all remember that shy girl with the biggest crush ever on Jackson that everyone knows except the sexy bartender himself. Since Willa saw Jackson for the first time, for her it has only been Jackson, in her teenager heart, he was the man of her dreams and as the years went on, for one reason or another there hasn’t been anyone else. Jackson has been blind all this time, never noticing Willa’s “attention “ to him, but one day, Thea opens his eyes and probably his heart too. Now that Jackson is aware of the sexy girl that Willa is, he won’t give up until he gets to know her more, but what he doesn’t realize is that he already messed it up with her and Willa won’t have anything at it. Just like Thea (If you haven’t read Tattered you have to) Jackson is who he is because life made him that way, to protect himself (and the ones who he loves) he keeps people at bay. If I liked Willa in Tattered, in Timid I fell in love with her: with her personality and character, how she stands for herself, for what she wants and for those who she loves. At some moments, I was frustrated at Jackson, but as the story went on, he made his way to my heart, he is a great man, he just needs the right woman to help him see it. The story is beautiful, the characters are great and once again Devney made me feel and live this story.

What an amazing book. Willa and Jackson are two characters I just love. Devney Perry was amazing at how she weaves an amazing love story. Willa has had a crush on Jackson for a long long time and Jackson was oblivious to it forever. When he finally wakes up Willa is over it. I love the journey and the trials they go through. The hurt they both feel and how they overcome it. Devney Perry knows how to write a love story with substance. This isn’t a fluffy nothing read this is a heartwarming story with character struggles. I love how she visits the characters from the previous book and throws in some humor too. Just when you think you know what’s happening the author surprises you. I loved this amazing book because of the way you can go on a roller coaster with them. Even though Willa is sometimes a shy timid girl she definitely has a strong backbone and fights for what she deserves. Please one click this amazing book! You won’t regret it.

Devney Perry is an amazing author. Her writing is able to take on this life-like feel where I can feel the characters. They end up being my friends or my enemies. Ms. Perry creates the best characters! Willa is by far, one of my favorite people; she’s just so darn sweet and open. It was just adorable how she was smitten with Jackson from the start. All I wanted was good things for her. She deserved them! Jackson was a bit gruff on the outside but on the inside he’s totally a softie. You just have to get him to open up. Seeing Willa grow to a shy and quite girl to someone who was stronger was an inspiring transformation. It’s an interesting mix… I might have swooned more for Willa than I did Jackson. Jackson made me want to beat my head against the wall a bit! The story though was so beautiful… it pulls out all the stops with the sweetness and all those emotions pumping though. Being able to catch up with the previous characters is a real treat! I love books like this with the interconnected series.
