Jack Eversea is back and determined to reclaim the heart of his one true love!!
“I wanted this girl. Like air. All the fucking way.”
I have to say that with the way Eversea ended I was just dying to find out what happened next and I loved that this book picked up right where the first one left off. All I had to do to reconnect was reread the last chapter from book #1 and I was good to go!
In Eversea, we saw A-list movie star Jack Eversea fall in love with a feisty small town girl, Keri Ann but circumstances outside of their control tore them apart. Now, we head back to Butler Cover to see the story of a man willing to go any lengths to win back the love of the only woman who’d ever really stolen his heart.
I totally felt terrible for Keri Ann in the beginning. I could feel her anger, frustration and heart ache. She was just picking up the pieces of her life and had just gotten everything back on track…
“This was a nightmare. I thought I’d be over him. But if [this] was any indication, I was not over him. Not entirely. Damn it. Not at all.”
But despite it all, she still loved him…
“Jack Eversea still flipped my insides over and made me feel like a star struck fan who desperately wanted to know him, but couldn’t.”
And he… well, he’d always loved her.
“I don’t know how to go back,” he whispered… “I don’t know how to go back to where we were, to what we had… to what we were supposed to be.” He paused again. “What we are meant to be.”
I loved their reunion!!! It wasn’t smooth sailing but ohhhh I felt it!! It was that feeling you get when you’re so mad at a person but you just don’t care because the love is greater than the heart ache!
And soon the reasons behind all the events that had taken place began to make sense. My heart just ached for Jack – I mean, poor guy!! What a horrible feeling to be put in a position of being utterly powerless to stop the heart of the person you love most from breaking. In this book, we were shown the real Jack — the man behind the tabloids and paparazzi shots — the man who’d never stopped loving this one girl.
“This is as real as it gets, Keri Ann. This is Technicolor, when everything else is black and white. This… what we have… is extra-sensory overload… where everything else is a silent fucking movie.”
Their biggest hurdle was for Keri Ann to come to terms with being involved with someone whose life was in the spotlight all the time. There were times when I wanted to shake her because of how much she was holding back from him. I wanted her to just take the leap of faith and accept his lifestyle as a part of the package deal that came with being with him and realize that being with him didn’t have to mean losing herself but it wasn’t easy for her to give up the freedom of living an unscrutenized life. Luckily though, Jack was a very convincing man. I mean, how do you say no to this??
“Just… try and remember,” he swallowed and grabbed my hand, pressing it against his chest. “Whatever anyone sees on the outside… this is yours in here. Please, God, don’t throw it away.”
Overall, this was a very quick and easy read for me. It was a full length novel but I read it in less than three hours. Jack and Keri Ann’s story was completely wrapped up in the end (complete with an epilogue!) and we were left in a very good place. If you loved the first one, you’ll love this one too.
Eversea is a fun and romantic story that takes you through all the highs and lows of falling in love with a world-famous movie star. This series really is just total escapism!
Oh, and on a random note, I just want to mention how much I love both the covers from this series. They both have such strong significance for the stories and really do a wonderful job of representing it!
** Note: There will be a third book in the series but it will focus on side characters.
