ARC for Review

Livvy is on the run. And she’s escaped to the one place nobody will ever find her. 

But the isolated cottage isn’t empty. Her refuge is home to a troubled stranger, Tom, there for reasons of his own. 

In the intimacy of the abandoned cottage, and the remote wilderness of the island, the electrifying connection between them is impossible to ignore. Both running from their histories and shielding dark secrets, their pasts catch up with them and collide in an unimaginable way. 

Deep emotions and powerful chemistry face a painful battle with the tangle of lies, and scars of the past. When the truth emerges, hearts will be shattered.

Mikki's Review

Secrets Have the Power to Shatter Hope but Love Has the Power to Rebuild 
Broken yet strong. Tormented yet hopeful. There are so many powerful messages it’s hard to pick just a few. Deep Blue Eternity was just what I’ve come to expect out of Ms. Boyd. I will say this book is much darker than her Eversea series but with the poignant tone comes some serious thought provoking topics. This isn’t a typical suspense but you know it’s there when reading and BAM! All of a sudden you are on your A R S E. I hope you’re hungry folks cause this is one that begs to be devoured. Boyd gives us two people a mysterious connection and so many secrets it’ll make your head spin. The setting was beautifully laid out, add that with the side characters? I could not get enough. This story played out like an HD full surround sound cinematic thrill ride. If you haven’t guessed it yet… I highly, highly recommend this read. 

D-reams, every little girl has them now on the cusp of adulthood Olivia will do what it takes to start on a new path.
E-erie, leaving everything behind is scary to some but to Olivia staying behind would have been much scarier. 
E-vade, goals along with a destination is all Olivia needs no one will look to find her where she is going. 
P-ain, Olivia’s only companion since she was quite young at the loss of her loved one.

B-roken, what Tom saw upon meeting Olivia. He wishes he could tell her everything he knows she needs to know. Unfortunately circumstances have taken a hold of his tongue. 
L-ost, running was only part of the plan now that Tom and Liv seem to be stuck together learning how to accept friendship has become Liv’s next goal. 
U-nkind, living in a small community there isn’t much one person doesn’t know about the other. That is why Tyler’s threats are not something to be taken lightly. 
E-ntertainment, Liv cannot seem to help herself trying to get a reaction out of Tom is a powerful pulling force.

E-ntranced, Tom knows he has to protect Liv even from himself but she has steadily coiled her way through his skin into his heart. 
T-rust, Olivia has not known what it is to depend on someone or be accountable to someone. This realization brings forth feelings she has to fight daily.
E-yes, through lore and friendships Olivia begins to recognize that life is guiding her in a very specific and crucial way. 
R-ise, Tom has had more than enough from Tyler and thus plans to stop him from ever touching or hurting Liv. With the help of his father figure they will stop at nothing to bring him to justice. 
N-ights, so many shared moments all building up their powerful love. Betrayed but the pain of being apart becomes greater than the lies which destroyed Olivia’s heart. 
I-ntuition, guiding towards the water both safety and danger await Liv. The most shocking realization of all the crazy events surrounding Olivia is forgiveness all of her loses don’t need to be one more. Knowing this she will fight for Tom and for what they could become. 
T-ruth, one final secret will turn everything upside down and Olivia will face the demons and slay the monsters. Though there has been suffering Liv has found the peace and security she has always longed for. 
Y-ears, knowing the monsters are gone allows Olivia to be happy with the man that truly sees her and only her. Everything else pales in comparison to the joy in her heart. 

Sigh…Tom was absolutely perfect for Liv. I have to warn you again. This isn’t light, it deals with very hard to read subjects so if you are looking for bubbles. Look elsewhere. One thing I would have loved to see is a certain someone being put to slaughter. Too much? Nah, read this book and you’ll feel the exact same. Seriously though it was so delightful getting to know all of the side characters especially JJ. Get ready to fall in love with a little island and all of its inhabitants. Bravo Ms. Boyd, bravo.
