The last thing she needs is attitude from the town's sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome m ...more
The Coppersmith Farmhouse is a book that has been recommended to me multiple times by many friends. I’m glad I made the time to read it. It was a great debut novel! It had a strong alpha male, a single mom, it was steamy, sweet, and had an element of suspense. I’ll definitely be reading more from this author!
Just as a side note, I wish I would have read the book instead of listening to it. There was so much ‘feedback’ in the audio, you could hear pages flipping, weird noise and squeal ...more
Not often you see a cover of a romance novel without a half naked man or woman on it! This is a pretty cover. It's a great representation of the story. It has great composition. Interesting typography and makes great use of graphics.
I enjoyed this one. It was a super sweet read that had a KA vibe to it. It was well-written and nicely paced. It had some hot sex scenes. It had a bit of mystery (to be honest, I knew who the baddie was from the MINUTE the person was introduced...but no matter.) Some ...more
This is me hiding because everyone seemed to love this except me :( The writing was solid, and the plot wasn't bad. It did feel a little formulaic: Jess is the manwhore everyone wants, while Georgia has only been with a couple guys. He's gorgeous, while she's plain and insecure, etc... There's nothing wrong with th ...more
New town. New house. New Car. New life.
I loved everything about this story, you may say right book, right time. I have had this sitting on my kindle for ages and when I hit a book funk this week, I thought why not? Great decision!!!!
Georgia/Gigi was a strong and independent woman who wanted nothing more than to make a safe loving and fun home for her daughter Rowen (who is super cute). So when an elderly man who she had befriended while being his nurse passed away and left her a ...more

Overall Opinion: This was an ok read. I thought it felt slow at times, but I never skimmed. I also didn't necessarily like either mc, so that was a big issue for me! I do agree with a GR friend that it had the same feel as a KA book, but it just didn't quite get there for me in meeting its potential. The h's daughter was cute, and her relationship with the H was fun to read. I also didn't necessarily mind the side characters, so I might give their book a chance...maybe. I didn't hate it, ...more
A nice read. Bit predictable. Hero was a bit of an ass in the beginning ... and stayed that way for quite a lot of the book. Just could not accept her opinions or reasonings. Realised who the "bad guy" was early enough ... a little bit obvious, I thought.
Good for a debut novel. Will probably check out more if she continues the series.
The kid was cute enough.
Saw some reviews mentioned that she wrote a little like KA. Yes, I could see some similarities. That is probably why I one-c ...more
Story Review: Loved❤loved❤loved!
I love the caveman Alpha, but it sure is hard to find a book with one that doesn't have an over-the-top storyline right along with it. This was the perfect blend of a great story, strong, likeable heroine and my favorite type of alpha.
The best part is, he wasn't being a caveman just because he could. He had reason for taking charge, but he also showed growth wh ...more
Jess is the kind of man who enters a woman's life and takes over every aspect of it. Controlling and motivated to do whatever he needs to do for the heroine. And I really enjoyed his assholeness in the beginning; it really made me laugh! BUT, the conflict completely dissolved at %20. Like there was none at all. And then my enjoyment petered out an ...more
It was captivating from the very first page. The quality of writing was superb and the plot intriguing and thrilling. It had the perfect mix of intense chemistry, sexy alpha, a little kid, and let’s not forget a good amount of suspense and intrigue. I still can’t believe that this was a debut novel – BRAVO Devney Perry – this book won’t be the last one I’ll be reading from you.
I think I should mention that even so I LOVE reading about macho alpha’s that are domineering ...more
I very much enjoyed this story set in the small town of Prescott, Montana.
The writing was great and the story line solid. The hero was a bit too pushy or alpha for my tastes yet it worked. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
Jess and GiGi's were great characters-
Jess was alpha to the max. He started out as a major jerk. He made assumptions about the heroine that simply were not true. It didn't take him long to figure out he was wrong and he immediately set out to make things right. His alpha tendencies were OTT but I personally like those caveman antics. He was a take charge kind of gu ...more
Alert!!! Up and coming brand new author! Prepare to be amazed and to swoon over sheriff Cleary.
If you read:
“I opened my mouth to ask what was going on but the words got stuck in the back of my throat. My brain short-circuited. All of my attention was focused on the man standing right in front of me. Seated on my stool, I had to tip my head way back to examine his face. I blinked a few times because this man was so ruggedly handsome I had to be imagining him. (…)

I absolutely loved The Coppersmith Farmhouse and I have found a new favourite author in Devney Perry. I loved her writing style and the fact that she does not go overboard with details like describing what every single room looks like down to all the nic nacs or what every single item of clothing looks like as I find this can get repetitive with some authors (naming no-one). I also loved that even though this is told mostly from Gigi’s POV we get some insight into ...more
I absolutely loved the narration of this book! The voices were so clear and precise. I’m relatively new to audiobooks so it’s taking some time for my ear to adjust to listening. I had no trouble at all with this duo. Ava’s voice was just perfect for the character and Joe’s voice was mesmerizing. I will definitely be looking for more from these narrators!
First, let me say that this book was an accident. I didn’t intend to purchase it but while ...more
I can be a little hit or miss when it comes to stories set in a small town. I think I know what the "hit" factor is (which is actually more about acknowledging the "miss" factor). I seem to like small town romances that are missing...narrow-minded, judgemental, snooty, crabby and persnickety know-it-alls. The first sign of Mr Crabby (the old fart who has an opinion on everything) or Mrs Pensnickety (the town tattler who expects respect without giving any) and I'm o ...more

I think this book was a great start to a series. I have seen so many reviews of this series come by lately, so of course I had to give it a go myself. I am glad I did, because it was a very nice read ;)
What pulled me in most though, was not so much the story, but the writing style. It was very pleasant, and even though there were parts that made me roll my eyes a bit, I could not stop reading. For me that's a sign to keep my eye on this author !

NO..ITS DEVNEY PERRY.
''WHO IS DEVNEY PERRY?'', YOU ASK..
I DON'T KNOW...but i love her..
Because this book..the feels and the chemistry and the mystery came together in a pretty red bow and IT WORKED..
The author made old fashioned writing like this, seem so easy..when it really wasn't.
BUT, WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE..
The Heroine's insecurity...I mean yea, a little bit of doubting yourself here and there is normal but she kept on thinking she is not pretty enough for the H ...more
DNF @ 30%
The hero is a total jerk to the heroine in the beginning, then decides his reason for disliking her is wrong so now he's going to act like a caveman. The heroine is all bluster, trying to stand up to the hero who was a complete jerk to her, but because he's sexy her hormones seems to excuse his behavior and she'll just fall at his feet *eye roll*.
I could't miss out reading this book. Starting over. Montana. Ruggedly Hunky sheriff. Hunky sheriff with an ATTITUDE. This author is new to me. I kept hearing great things about this book in a really short amount of time. I also snooped in my friend Chele's book shelf. She's a western/Montana expert. Yep. My friend Chele and lots of others gave this book high marks.
Curious me. Thanks SO much Chele :)

Jess Cleary is the sheriff in Prescott, Montana. He used to take care of the farmhouse and treated the former owner like family. He made assumptions about Georgia tricking an old man out of his possessions. He was a jackass to her. "Are you about done drooling over me so ...more

“Do you find me attractive?”
“I thought so,” he said. “Already told you tonight you were beautiful. So since we’ve got some major fucking chemistry and we get along, how about we cut the bullshit and see where this goes?”
