GR's Summary

An orphaned, small-town, southern girl, held hostage by responsibility and self-doubt. 

A Hollywood A-list mega-star, on the run from his latest scandal and with everything to lose. 

A chance encounter that leads to an unlikely arrangement and epic love affair that will change them both forever. 

When his co-star and real-life girlfriend is caught cheating on him with her married and much older director, A-list hottie, Jack Eversea, finds himself in sleepy Butler Cove, South Carolina.  Jack hopes the sultry southern heat in this tiny coastal Lowcountry town will hide him not only from the tabloids and his cheating girlfriend, but his increasingly vapid life and the people who run it.  He doesn’t count on meeting Keri Ann Butler. 

Keri Ann has relied on herself so long, dealing with her family’s death and the responsibilities of keeping up her family's historic mansion, that boys and certainly the meager offering of eligible boys in Butler Cove, have never figured into her equation. But fate has other plans. Suddenly face to face with the man who played the movie role of her favorite fictional character, Jack has Keri Ann yearning for everything she has previously avoided ... and Jack must decide whether this funny, sassy girl is worth changing his life for, before his mistakes catch up to him. 

Eversea, a love story, is a Winter Rose Contest FINALIST 2013. Emilia Pisani of Simon & Schuster (judge) says "Great southern flavor!" and "Jack is an alluring leading man!"

The way Ria sees it

OH MY HOLY MOTHER OF CUTE BABY TURTLES EVERYWHERE!!!  What just happened?!  Magic people, freaking fantastical magic!!!  Wow, as you all know, my TBR is like this endless vortex viper of a black hole!!  It’s sooo INSANE, because I just keep adding to it and skipping along. Yep!  SKIPPING along.  I love IT!  I love getting to pick up a precious JEWEL such as EVER-MOTHER-EFFIN-EVERSEA!!!  My heart is racing right now...GAh!!!!  Okay, let me take some calming breaths and wrap up my rant... 

Breath in. 

Breath out. 

Okay, I’ve dried my eyes, and I’m composed.  To say Eversea is UnPutADownAble, would be an understatement!  From the moment I cracked the book open, I fell in “LOVE” of the Instant variety ;)  Seriously!  Ms. Boyd is SO CLEVER.  There is a spell embedded in the first few pages that hypnotize you.  You will find yourself reading at; red traffic lights, standing by the copy machine, in a meeting, at your little ones soccer practice, and during dinner.  Later in the evening, excusing yourself at the earliest possible opening, to continue reading through the night, dozing off and waking at 3:30 am with the first thought being “OMG, Where's my kindle?  Where's my kindle...?” 

Okay, Darn it!  I keep ranting!

Sorry, Let's try this again.... 

The way Ria Sees Eversea 

Eversea is a beautiful love story with an amazing supporting cast.  Everyone's role was perfectly amazing, and they all FIT. Eversea is not over in the end!!  Actually, the ending is a little cliffy, which you know I hate, but it wasn’t all “someone's dying, someones dead, or some crazy question is left looming in the air.”  Oh, and no one comes back from the dead.  H
owever, You will be like, “WHAT?!"  This CANNOT be the LAST PAGE!”  It hit me like a train, upon actually accepting that it was indeed the last page... One million fluttering little pterodactyls manifested in my tummy anticipating what's to come... 

E-scape, a bike, and thousands of miles puts distance.  The shame is in the past, but only time can alleviate his heartbreak. 
V-ulnerable, lost, alone, blissfully unaware of her fears.  Life, and pain becomes a reality for Keri Ann. 
E-nsnared, unable to avoid each others warnings or warnings of their hearts these two “dipoles” fall hard. 
R-evelation, scorned but refusing to lose, a past that should stay past, comes crashing in.  Fighting for what she wants, she will claim Jack's future. 
S-eparation is torturous, and agonizing.  There is nothing anyone can do to change what happens.  As painful as the madness is, there is only one road to travel. 
E-nraged, betrayals, truths, second chances, broken hearts, what was once known, will shatter in a moment of blurred chaos and rage. 
A-ssumptions, his friends in search, her friends protecting, what type of cacophony awaits? 

Speaking of assumptions, I’m assuming y’all read the synopsis movie star guy, virginal girl...Yea, you’ve read it before, so have I  .DO.NOT.FRET. it’s DIFFERENT...How can this be RIA? I don’t know it just IS. Maybe it's the magical spell embedded in the beginning? I want to SHOUT from the rooftops!  So yea, if you like “Love” you’ll LOVE Eversea.  READ IT! 

My Fav’s 

Keri Ann 
INSTA-Love, she was riding in her truck, and I immediately fell in love! It's her personality!  Lol, her inner dialogue is great!  She is innocent, but not whinny.  Of all of the things she is, most of all she is believable!  There was never a dull moment.  Everyone in the town loved Keri Ann. She is funny, honest, enjoyable and beautiful!  She shines off of the pages.  I love her :) I wholeheartedly agree with everyone from Butler Cove! Keri Ann is a treasure. 

Is HOT, honorable, sweet, funny, alluring, and a little broken. He doesn’t do a single thing wrong in this book, but he isn’t flawless and everyone knows it to a certain degree;) WARNING: Jack will make you swoon! I don’t know about you, but there is NO such thing as to many hot guys with tattoos that have a bike. The tattoo’s MEAN something and the Ducati... aside from only being a means of transportation, well it's the Catalina Wine Mixer of Motorcycles.  (POW!) 

My Rating 

4.75 Red Truck, Baby Turtles, Drunk Pastor, Dead Puppies, Red Sea Glass, White Bikini, Spiteful ex, Right Hook, Crushed Dreams, New Dreams, Embracing Life filled Stars! I really REALLY wanted to give this 5 stars but a BIG 5 star factor is the HEA... This story isn’t over shhh... Fingers crossed on things to come... Stop what your doing and Go GET.Lost.In.Love!

Mikki's Review

Holy Wow! Why in the world did it take me so long to read EVERSEA?!?!?! Peeps!!! If you have this book on your TBR list or on your ereader …. READ IT NOW!!!!! This book is a hidden gem!!! I started this book on a Sunday morning and I finished it in one sitting. OMG!!! It was so freakin’ AMAZING!!!! It was an extraordinary reading escape.  The story in itself is déjà vu. Small town girl falls for super popular movie star. What makes Eversea different? I would have to agree with my co-blogger Ria. It's magic! Natasha Boyd really worked her magic. She made me feel, live, breathe every single emotion that Keri Ann and Jack were feeling. I forgot to eat, work and sleep! I was 100% engaged in this story and I could not think of anything else! 

In Eversea we follow Keri Ann Butler, a small town girl with big dreams and Jack Eversea, a Hollywood mega star who is struggling between who he needs to be and who he wants to be. Keri Ann is having just another regular day at work, until a stranger in a hoodie changes her life in a heartbeat. Jack is on the run. After a very public hollywood breakup with his girlfriend, he wants to be far away from the media and needs an escape to sort things out. A good friend offers him the perfect escape when he gives him the keys to his house in South Carolina. Jack was looking for some peace of mind. Instead he found a girl who will forever change his life. A girl that sees him not has a mega star, but has the real JACK. Keri Ann is shocked to come face-to-face with the actor who plays the role of her favorite fictional character. What would a mega superstar like him do in a small town like Butler Cove? When Jack asks her to keep his secret, she accepts and they make a deal. In exchange for her help at keeping his presence a secret,  he will help her with some house renovations. As the days go by, Jack and Keri Ann develop a friendship that turns into a beautiful love story that takes them by surprise. When Hollywood comes knocking on the door, their relationship will be put to the ultimate test. Will their love be strong enough to overcome these obstacles?

Natasha Boyd has created a world where I want to live in. I can’t believe that this is Natasha Boyd’s first novel!!! That’s crazy!!! Like Jack said to Keri Ann … “God,” he said, between breaths. “If that’s what you kiss like with no experience ... ” Well, I’m saying the same thing about Natasha’s first novel … ‘’God,’’ I say to myself. ‘’If that’s how she writes a first novel  … I can’t wait to see what her second, third, fourth novel  will be like!’’ I am a HUGE fan ! My co-blogger Ria was right … She ROCKS !!!! 

While I was reading Keri Ann and Jack’s story, I was literally transported to Butler Cove. I felt like I was a supporting character in their story. I laughed and cried with them. Keri Ann and Jack are the kind of characters that I love to root for. They are captivating, lovable and most of all they felt so REAL to me. Keri Ann is kind, sweet and confident. She always helps other people before thinking of herself. She has a heart of gold and she has been through a lot. Jack is amazing, sexy, tender and passionate. He’s had a difficult past and his fame is suffocating him. He wants more to life than what Hollywood is imposing on him. These two have incredible chemistry! They had a slow building romance, but with crazy sexual tension. Holy hotness! Beware of the swoon-bombs that Jack will drop. Swoon Attack!!!

What can I say about the supporting characters? I loved them all!!! Even the ones that I loved to hate! They made the story what it was, and without them the story would have been different. I want a BFF just like Jazz. She is hilarious and crazy! This book did end with a huge cliffhanger. I really want these two to find their HEA and I am confident that everything will turn out for the best. I am so happy that Forever Jack is already out. I’m starting it ASAP! Kudos to the readers that had to wait for the second books to come out! I’m a very patient person, but when it comes to books …. I have no patience at all!!! I want to read the sequel ASAP! 

My Rating 

I give, Eversea, by Natasha Boyd 5 passionate, romantic, fascinating, heartwarming stars ! This is a must on your TBR list! You will fall in love with Keri Ann and Jack. Their story is a real page-turner and you won’t be able to put it down! You are one-click away from reading an incredible love story ;)

Now ;)

GoodReads Summary 

A feisty small-town girl and the Hollywood star who broke her heart 

An all-consuming love threatened by fame 

One last chance at FOREVER 

Keri Ann Butler's life changed on the night she met movie star, Jack Eversea. She thought she knew a Jack that was very different to the man adored by fans the world over. In the wake of his betrayal and abandonment, Keri Ann has had to pick up and move forward with the life she was supposed to live and has put off far too long. 

Suddenly Jack is back, and his explanations for why he left seem more and more plausible, and his declarations more seductive. But being Jack's latest tabloid accessory isn't on Keri Ann's career agenda, no matter how much she is attracted to him. And how can she can ever trust him again? 

Jack knows he let the only 'real' thing that ever happened to him slip through his fingers. And his hands have been tied to try and stop it. Until Now. 

Jack is now fighting to save his relationship with Keri Ann, even as his crazy life threatens to tear them apart. Again. The question is, can he convince her she can have it all? And have him? Forever? 

Read how it all began in “Eversea “… 

Forever, Jack is the sequel to Eversea (released June 2013).

The Way Ria Sees It

This book was like a flame, and I, an innocent little moth...Here’s why... 

Well Duh there’s Jack and Keri Ann and Jazz and Joey?.. 

WAIT! First I want to tell you(person reading this) something, I love you. There... now that “that’s” out of the way, I’ll get to it. 

The COVER! GAW-JESS its all like “Ooh, look at me. I have something awesome and amazing inside that you must read.” 

Boy oh boy is that ever RIGHT! 

There are books and characters out there that take a piece of your heart and THIS is one of them. This is a continuation of Jack and Keri Ann’s story which I was DYING to get my hands on. 
It Does Not Disappoint. 
Ms. Boyd creates magic once again! I don’t want to say goodbye to these wonderful characters but I am so glad I had a chance to meet them. 

F-orsaken, Jack has been betrayed by the people he trusted. A deal has been made in order to protect his love. He has to abandon her further. 
O-bligation, Keri Ann has tried to pick up the pieces and move on. Colt has been her friend but he wants more. Keri Ann can’t move on with him but she doesn’t know how to break his heart. 
R-eunion, stopped on the side of the road with Colt, Keri Ann is confronted with the man who has haunted her since the day he left so many months ago. 
E-asy, Jack was a coward. He knows how difficult getting Keri Ann’s trust will be, but with a plan he refuses to give up on her. 
V-ail, Keri Ann carries so much pain and hurt she can’t see whats in front of her. Her heart is telling her one thing but her eyes fail to see. 
E-nvelope, with the help of the heavens the truth will find its way to Keri Ann. In her hands she holds the contents of Jack’s heart. The truth of everything that has kept them apart. 
R-esigned, the magic that Jack and Keri Ann have together is palpable. Knowing everything that she knows now, even with all of her reservations, she must follow her heart. The Veil is off. She sees what her heart feels and she will go after it. 

J-oey, wants to protect his sister. He wants to keep Jack away from her. A challenge is made and the race will begin. Jack will do what it takes to win his approval. 
A-uction, a piece of Keri Ann’s talent and heart is up for people to bid on. Jack will never lose anything that has to do with Keri Ann again. Ever. The stakes are high but their love is priceless, Jack will not be outbid. 
C-areer, so much has happened. Keri Ann has carved her way to this moment. Everything she has worked so hard for has come to fruition and this is her moment to shine. Without reservation she will embrace what life tosses her way. Her strength, her soul and her heart will be her guide. 
K-nees, a conversation that began with the dark past that Jack had to endure will lead to a dream come true and a revelation of their future together. Jack and Keri Ann have both suffered and fought to find each other and keep their love. This moment in time unites them forever and they experience the peace they have sought. 




Ms. Boyd has a way of weaving certain magic that will transform you! Literally, you won’t be in your reading chair or on your couch. You’ll be standing next to Keri Ann and Jack FEELING what they feel. This is such a beautiful story of heart break, revelations, struggles, deceptions and discovery. An innocent encounter blossoms into one of the most beautiful love stories I’ve EVER read. I literally FELT the pain and ANGUISH between Keri Ann and Jack. Seriously. My stomach was in knots and my heart hurt. Applause Applause Applause! This is a must read for EVERYONE and lets not forget.... HELLO steamy scenes!! I cried, I laughed, I hoped and I longed for these two to find their HEA. You will too!! 

My Fav’s

Jack Mother Effin Eversea! 
He has been through so much, trusted so many people who have hurt him. I longed for him to find his way to his love. The way he feels for Keri Ann shines through the pages and it made me sigh and swoon at the same time. Jack stole my heart and I knew right away he was meant for Keri Ann the development of their story and their love is unmatched. 

Keri Ann 
As far as the virginal sweet (so sappy you cant stomach) girl goes Keri Ann defies all stereotypes this girl will win your heart and throw you on her sidelines. Does that make me her personal cheerleader? YOUR DANG SKIPPY IT DOES! She has the strength of a bull, the heart of a lion, but the insecurities of a 13yr old pimple faced boy at a school dance. I was like K you can do it take whats yours and own it!!! LET.ME.TELL.YOU! She does!! and my heart swelled with pride for her!! This girl is at the top of my list, and I’m sure she will be at the top of yours! 

My Wish
Joey and Jazz!!! Eeeeep these two are so full of life and spirit as secondary characters how amazing would they be as the lead?!! I would JUST.DIE. If I could see a story that starts 4 years from now and see Jazz find her way to Joey! 

My Rating

5.0 Bandage, Broken Bones, Renegotiated Contract, Star Centerpiece, Lost Tarp, Chance Encounter, Moonlit Conversation, Starved Kiss, Mastermind Plan, Unwelcome Photos, Desolate Cottage, Souls Uniting, Guessed Amount, Auctioned Prize, Limo Ride, Screenplay Read, Dreams Realized filled STARS!!! Seriously you are missing out if you haven’t read these!! GET.THEM.NOW.

Mikki's Review

Oh my Squeeeee!!!! It took me 5 freakin' days to write this review!!! I have a major book hangover!!! I can't find the words to express how much this book means to me. It was hands down one of the best sequels that I have ever read! I cannot believe that it's OVER :( I miss Keri Ann and Jack soooooo much!!! I enlisted the help of my co-blogger Ria to get through it. I'm an emotional mess!!! This book lived up to all of my expectations. Forever Jack = Perfection!

I don't want to give anything away because I hate spoilers, but this is the sequel to Eversea so you will read small spoilers. If you have not read Eversea yet ... What are you waiting for??? Go one-click ... Now! Forever Jack picks up exactly where Eversea left off. In Forever Jack we get the answers to the questions that have been bugging us since we finished reading Eversea. In Eversea, Keri Ann and Jack had to end up taking different paths. Not because they wanted to, but because of circumstances that they had no control over. Keri Ann was left heartbroken when Jack left and she is trying to heal as best as she can. For once in her life she puts herself first and starts working on her future. Jack is living in a state of numbness. The love of his life is far away and he fears that he has lost her forever. After staying away for months, and suffering yet again another betrayal from people he trusted,  Jack  decides that he's done with all these obligations that tie him to this crazy hollywood world. It's finally time to win back Kerri Ann's heart and trust. Feelings that she thought she had buried come back full force once Jack comes back to townKeri Ann and Jack embark on an emotional journey to find their way back to each other. A journey where they fight for what they want with everything that they have. 

Keri Ann and Jack have made it to my Top Favorite Couple list. Sweet Mother of God!!!! These two are INTOXICATING!!! Their love story is so powerful and captivating. They have been through a lot! I had no idea what Jack was living. OMG! My heart broke for him! He sure did come a long way from the broken superstar that we first met in Eversea. He knows what he wants and he's not going to backdown. He's going after his soulmate. I loved how Keri Ann handled Jack's return. She's strong and independent. Let me tell you that she makes him sweat! She was hurt and mad. When you get your heart broken for the first time it hurts like hell! She has a difficult time trusting him again, which is only normal. But, a love like theirs can't be denied. It's intense, passionate and simply unforgettable. And, the steamy scenes .... Holy Moly! That is passion my friends! *Panties Melting*

I am so happy with how this story played out! I could not have asked for a better HEA. The most memorable part for me in Forever Jack was the emotional and heartbreaking words that are between chapter seventeen and eighteen. It's Jack Eversea like you have never seen him before. Take out the tissues people!!! Ugly Cry alert!!!! This made me love him even more. What an epic love story! Once again the supporting characters had an amazing contribution to this story and now .... I want Jazz & Joey's story. Ohhhhhh how amazing these two would be together! You can already feel their intense chemistry. Jazz is hilarious and I have no doubt that she would drive Joey crazy!!!! They have a past together, and I really want to see what the future holds for them.

I give, Forever Jack, by Natasha Boyd 5 exciting, emotional, loving, moving, phenomenal stars! I will without a doubt reread this series in the near future. I can't get enough of the fascinating world that Natasha Boyd has created ;)
