Eversea by Natasha Boyd
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.
Rate & take
Heat Index 3 ☼☼☼
On the plus side; I found another great author!!! On the minus side; I have another book to wait for!!! (Book two, Forever, Jack will be out in November of this year.) In fairness there was another plus, book one didn't end on a cliff hanging moment, but I still need more, more!!!
Such a good story, a run away movie star and a small town girl, both with troubles to spare. What was most amazing is how the author took these two people from very different worlds and exposed the similarities in their problems that prevented them from having the life they really wanted. I think this book will deserve a re-read right before book two comes out.
