Eversea: A Love Story

Eversea - Natasha Boyd (You can read an awesome deleted scene from Eversea on my blog - http://www.bookishtreasures.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/blogaversary-celebrations-exclusive.html )4.5 stars Loved this book. Full review is coming soon :)With that ending there had better be a sequel!Full ReviewI really enjoyed this book. It is a fun read but it also has lots of depth and emotion. You will get lost in the characters and their stories. This book is escapism at its very best. It is a beautiful coming of age story with lots of lovely romance mixed in.The synopsis may make Eversea seem somewhat clichéd, but there is so much more to this book than it just being a movie star romance. It is a coming of age tale about two people realising that what the people around them want them to do and what they want to do may be two different things. Without realising it Keri Ann has settled into a life that doesn’t make her happy and Jack is discovering the downside of true fame. Together they help each other realise who they really are and what they truly want.I love books set in the south (I think it is the sexy accent) and this one captures the southern feel perfectly. The authors’ writing is very visual and you feel as if you have been transported to Butler Cove. You can almost see the characters and they feel so real.Keri-Ann is a great character, she always puts other people first and she is kind and caring. I would love to know her in real life. Jack is a character you will wish was real. He is so swoon worthy; sexy and powerful but he also has an innocence that makes you want to look after him. The romance builds slowly. Jack and Keri-Ann have an instant attraction that becomes something deeper. I felt that the romance is really believable and it is the perfect mixture of sweet and steamy.I recommend this to fans of NA books and any type of romance. The ending makes it pretty obvious there is a sequel. It isn’t really a cliff hanger but it certainly isn’t a happy ever after. I can’t wait for book 2.*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, this has not affected my opinions or rating in any way*
