Lark Cove #4
By Devney Perry
Releasing February 19th, 2019
Sofia Kendrick has always cherished her tiara. As the youngest daughter of a wealthy New York family, she’s lived the life of an American princess. But after two scandalous divorces and a breakup smear her name across the society rags, the shine from her crown has dulled.
People call her superficial, even gaudy. She’s nothing more than tinsel. Desperate for escape and starving for peace, Sofia heads to Montana for a holiday weekend with her brother. But she doesn’t get the relaxing vacation she planned.
Instead, she’s put to work in a bar alongside Dakota Magee—a man who does not want her help. A man who is set on teaching her a few lessons about real life and hard work. But Sofia has a couple of life lessons of her own to teach. Like how to fall in love.
In Tinsel (Lark Cove #4) by Devney Perry, Sofia Kendrick loves her life as a socialite. However, when an article about her is written and paints a very unflattering picture of her life as a two-time divorcee and someone that loves to spend her family's money instead of doing something meaningful with her life, she realizes it's time for a change. So, she heads to Lark Cove to visit her brother and finds herself working behind the bar her sister-in-law runs. Yet, she's never had a job and doesn't know what she's doing. Still, she'll do her best to finally turn her life around. But she never imagined she'd fall in love with someone totally her opposite. Will Sofia and Dakota take a chance on each other or will they walk away from each other because they're too different?
If you haven't had a chance to read any of this series than you're missing out on some really fantastic stories. Stories filled with great characters, absolutely engaging dialogue and will keep you entertained from start to finish because of the main characters back stories and the couple's journey to happy ever after and this story is no different. Really, the way this story started had me sympathizing with the heroine and had me reading quickly, determined to discover whether her family would ever be proud of her instead of always thinking of her as a screw-up. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time where this story really gets interesting, as the hero doesn't want to be saddled with Sofia, but soon finds himself wanting to make things better for her. Will Dakota be able to help Sofia discover her purpose in life?
With the main characters, I loved the way these two blossomed in the way they're complete opposites, but end up realizing how much they need each other and fight for their future together. Yes, they have their fears and those that oppose their relationship, but I liked that they didn't let anything get in the way of achieving their happy ever after. Not after what the pair go through that makes them realize they can't live without the other. Furthermore, I really liked the heroine and all that she goes through. She's hit rock bottom and realizes what a complete joke she is and I enjoyed how determined she was to make something of herself finally. Really, she's resilient, courageous, driven to show her family she can succeed and I liked how she shows her family what she can do when she puts her mind to achieving something of her own.
While the hero, he faces his own struggles when it comes to his family and going against everything his parents wanted for him. Certainly, his parents made him feel like he was suffocating by all but demanding he do what they want and I'm so glad he went his own way in life. Really, he's done so well for himself and deserves to feel proud of all that he's achieved, even if it's less than what he'd hoped he'd accomplish for his life by now. I also liked how good the hero is to the heroine because she hasn't had the easiest of times lately and needs someone on her side.
Overall, Ms. Perry has delivered a fantastic and compelling read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was tangible and strong; the romance was delightful and had me liking that these two took a chance on each other; and the ending had me loving the decision the hero makes to prove to the heroine that she's the one and he'll always choose her. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely because Sofia and Dakota are so happy together and everything that's happened in their lives has brought Sofia that much closer with her family, which was wonderful to read. I would recommend Tinsel by Devney Perry, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope or books by authors Vi Keeland, Corinne Michaels, Melanie Harlow and Adriana Locke.
