Eversea Tour Part 1: A Review of Eversea by Natasha Boyd. Plus Giveaways!

Eversea (Eversea #1) by Natasha Boyd
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: June 4, 2013
Publisher: Self

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.

Eversea is the intoxicating debut novel by Natasha Boyd. I was immediately drawn into the life of Keri Anne. The scenes were written in such away that I felt like I was there, and this was all happening to me. The emotions were raw between the characters and that really flowed from the pages. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but there were many things that reminded me of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's breakup. I was a little worried about that in the beginning, but it didn't hinder the overall enjoyment of the book for me. In fact, except for some obvious instances, I rarely thought about the comparison through most of the story. Jack and Keri Ann are broken and flawed, each in their own ways. They both have had some major trauma in their lives. I think these things make them perfect for putting each other back together again. The romance is electric. Their chemistry seeps off the page and kept me in an almost permanent state of anticipation.
