Synopsis:

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.

This was very much a Reid Alexander/Dori Catrell kind of romance. While I loved Tammara Webber’s rendition of superstar turned boyfriend, I seriously loved this book too. There characters were so real and the romance intense. AND THAT ENDING. I JUST. fjdhlfkjahdasjf.

Keri-Ann is a small town girl, orphaned by her parents death and attempting to ignore pressure from the town’s citizens to sell her family’s historical house to the city. Taking turns with her brother, she’s on house protection/restoration duty until he finishes college. However, with the pressure high and the funds and ability low, Keri-Ann can’t do much about the state of her house. Step in Jack Eversea, millionaire actor hiding in the small town after a fallout with his girlfriend. Turns out he’s not a bad handy-man either. The two team up to hide him and to fix up the Butler house to return it to its former glory.

The emotions in this book were on high and I felt every tear, every laugh, and every moment of anger and passion. Every little cue and detail, Boyd got right when it came to her characters expressing how they feel, through the literary body language, dialogue, and narration. I loved that throughout the novel, Keri-Ann and Jack connected so well. They inspired each other to become more comfortable in their skin. The character development in this novel was phenomenal. Keri-Ann was a little lost at the beginning of the book, but as it went on, you could really see her becoming more comfortable in her skin. I loved being on that journey with her. Jack was a big help, as he helped her realize that she has an amazing talent, even if she doesn’t think so. I liked that they brought out the best in each other. Their romance was just … perfect.

Touching on the end of the book… : WHAT. That was my first reaction. My second reaction was that Jack needs to get hit in the head. But that’s besides the point. While I expected a bit of that ending, a large part of it was a huge surprise, but a total twist on Keri-Ann and Jack’s relationship. Definitely brought my attention back around, and made me want to burn through the next book, as well.

Overall, this book was awesome. The writing was great, the characters were realistic and connected amazingly, and the end left me in a state of shock and then anticipation for the next book. Definitely recommend this one. To sign off, can I just mention that the cover for this was beautiful and the detail in that turtle etched on the sea glass is just stunning? Well, I did. And it is. Eversea was a whirlwind of a story, and I can’t wait to read the next book!

So in love with this cover by the way. I need to put myself on a book ban. I don't have enough money for all these books... Either that or I need a job.
