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 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.
I thought this was a really cute book until the end. I have that same love/hate relationship with cliffhangers as most of you do. Why why why? I’ve said this before but it’s like a roller coaster ride. It’s hell to get me on one but then I’m in love and you can’t get me off.
I thought the book really started to get good about 3/4 of the way in.
This was a good book so please don’t misunderstand my lack of enthusiasm. I was just looking for something with more grit. Something I could sink my teeth into and this book is more on the sweetness level then the oh shit did that just happen level. Sweet is good. Sweet can even be great.
Keri Ann is sweet. She’s sweet and she’s an orphan. She’s given up the hope for college so that her big brother can go first. She’s so sweet that she lives in her family’s historic house and works as a waitress while trying to fix up said house so that the town will leave her alone about it’s lack of repair. She’s so sweet that she’s only been kissed once in her life. Why you ask? Because she’s waiting for Mr. Right. Oh and yep you guessed it she’s so sweet that she’s still a virgin.
In walks holy hotness himself, heart-throb actor, Jack Eversea. He’s on the run. Looking for an escape from the media and also his equally famous girlfriend. So he’s unavailable. Way above her pay grade LOL. Definitely, not the stability she’s looking for.
But love conquers all right? Guess you’ll have to read it to see!
I will most definitely be reading the next book. I HAVE to know what happens. Things were getting really juicy at the end. Exactly what I was looking for. That’s why I ended up at 4 stars. The angst level really kicked up a notch.
Oh and I really enjoyed it when it switched to Jack’s POV. Give me more of that please!
