Eversea by Natasha Boyd | Book Review

Book Blurb:
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!"

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 new 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.

Book Review:
Yep, something a little different. I have read the other Hollywood hunk books where they stumble upon unsuspecting regular people and fall in love with them, and Eversea isn't too different, but still different enough that it makes it a good read.
I guess what makes the book is the heroine, Keri Ann. She doesn't put up with Jack's crap, and I don't blame her. She does introduce him to new things and helps him grow as a person. That is what relationships are all about, helping the other person to push their boundaries and grow as a person. Who knew? lol
Keri Ann has great friends and a brother who help her push her boundaries. They help her realize that maybe being Jack's friend isn't such a bad thing, even if it isn't going to last.
There is a bit of a twist throughout the book that makes you wonder what the solution is. You are trying to figure it out along with the couple. However, the twist at the end was a bit of a shock. I didn't see it coming, and I pride myself on my ability to figure stuff out.
So, my final rating? 4 stars. Will I read the next one? Yep. Oh, side note. This book doesn't have much sex in it. It really does focus on the relationship. I feel like this is an important point since more-so-than-not, the romance books have had a ton of sex lately. If you want smut, this isn't it, but instead has a character driven story line.
