5 Stars

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.


About the story....

Keri Ann is 22 years old. She lives in the small South Carolina town Butler Cove Island. All alone in her big family house, after her brother went off to med school. Their parents died when she was just a teenager and a few years later her grandma passed away too. Now she's all alone, working her ass off at the diner and trying to save the crumbling Butler family mansion.

Then Jack rides into town on his motorcycle.

I was just minding my own business and someone lobbed a grenade into my life - in the form of Jack Eversea.

But he's kind of undercover. Because he's not just a hot guy - he's THE hottest guy on the planet. Hollywood superstar Jack Eversea. And Keri Ann is the only one who knows he's in town.

...the runaway Hollywood hottie.

After he met her in the Diner, he asks her to not let anyone know that he's in town.
He's trying to hide away for a while. His girlfriend cheated on him and he just couldn't stand to be in LA any longer. That's how he ends up living in a friends house at the beach.

Keri Ann agrees to keep his secret and soon the two of them spend a lot of time together. She buys groceries for him, he helps renovating her house.......

Keri Ann was never a typical teenager, she never dated, never went out much with friends.
That's why she's not sure what to think about her growing feelings for Jack. Is she falling for the hot superstar, or for the the hero of her favorite book series (Jack plays him in the movie!) or is she getting to know the real Jack?

Then there's Jack - could this girl be the first person ever who wants to get to know the real him. Everybody always wants something from him, nobody ever wanted HIM, only whatever it was he could give them.

Things between Jack and his 'Ex' Audrey are not exactly as they seem.... it's all very complicated....

Could there be a future for Keri Ann & Jack?
Will they get their HEA?
Or will everybody die at the end? ☺☺☺

Will there be a Cliffhanger? ☺☺☺

I'm not telling you of course ☺☺☺ 

Ok - I might tell you that, since there will be a second book, there will be much more to tell ☺
can't wait to get started with book #2



I didn't know what to expect at all when I started to read. And that's really the best thing that can can't be disappointed when you don't have any expectations ☺

But I wasn's disappointed at all!!!
I loved it. 
I was right there in Butler Cove with Keri Ann from the very first moment.
I could picture it all in my mind. The heat, the mosquitoes, the reeaaaalllly hot Hollywood Superstar ☺

And the story? It was the perfect New Adult Cinderella Romance ☺

Poor small-town girl - who doesn't know how beautiful she really is - meets this gorgeous Hollywood Superstar.
This book couldn't have done anything wrong for me after I knew what it was about.
I just love those kind of stories.
Give me a Rockstar - Hollywoodstar - Navy SEAL ☺ and I'm happy.
And I was really happy with this book!!!

Keri Ann is such a wonderul girl. Staying in this little town to work, so that she can slowly repair the family home and that her brother can go off to become a doctor.
She's working so hard to please everyone - her brother - the town - that she forgets about herself. She wanted to go to art school and create beautiful things.
But she's stuck in this unexciting life until Jack comes riding into town.

He changes everything for her.
And she does the same to him.

He didn't have a very nice childhood, but he never really talked to anybody about all that. Keri Ann is the first person who really wants to listen to him. She wants to get to know the real him.

Those two are sooo adorably cute.
It's really funny and sexy and sweet how they are together!

Not everything is all hearts and flowers of course ☺ Jack's Ex might show up and cause trouble.

Maybe it was just too good to be true for both Jack & Keri Ann.

But - we'll find out all about how their story will end in book #2 FOREVER, JACK

I really loved EVERSEA!!!

It was perfect from the first to the last line ☺

 Oh - and btw - the last lines / pages are from Jack's POV - so we get to know him a little better! I really loved that!

The tiny little thing that bothered me about the book - and it's only this one little thing - there wasn't enough sexiness in it for me. Yes, I know - it's called A LOVE STORY - not an erotic Romance - but still - I wished Natasha wouldn't have been that shy with the sexy scenes. There isn't anything sexy until the middle of the book and then it's not all that much. I like a bit more SEX in my books - BUT for most readers it will be just perfect!!!

Please go and buy the book - you won't regret it - you will fall in love with Keri Ann, Jack & all the others (Jazz, Joey etc.) just like I did!

I'm really excited to read what will happen next!
