I was fortunate to meet Natasha Boyd at a Romance Writers’ gathering in 2014. She is an internationally acclaimed Romance Writer, having penned five successful novels to date. She was on a brief visit to South Africa where she hails from before returning home to South Carolina. She revealed how a chance encounter with writers gave her the courage to submit her work leading to the publishing of “Eversea” and “Forever, Jack” which sky-rocketed her career.
One of my goals this year is to read as many romance books as possible and Eversea was top of the pile. From the moment I dived into the novel I was blown away by Natasha’s flawless writing talent. She has the gift of enticing you from the first page, reeling you in with each captivating chapter until you’re left gasping for more!
Keri-Anne is a waitress in Butler’s Cove, South Carolina. Life hasn’t been easy on her. She lost her parents, put her dreams on hold for the sake of her only brother and shoulders the upkeep of their historic home. Her simple life collides with Jack Eversea, a heart-stopping Hollywood star hiding out from fame and a cheating celebrity girlfriend. As much as Kerri-Anne is drawn to Jack, she doesn’t treat him like a besotted fan and helps him lay low for a while. Jack finds Kerri-Anne beguiling, what with her natural beauty, sassiness and love of the outdoors. So begins a friendship that borders on mutual attraction – each hesitant to take it further, yet unable to fight their feelings.
Just when you think Kerri-Anne and Jack are destined to live happily ever after, Jack’s past catches up with him and rips apart their brief love affair. Kerri-Anne is left nursing a broken heart and Jack returns to the vain world of acting. As a glimmer of hope appears on the horizon, the Author snatches it and leaves the reader hanging on for dear life – in my case without the second novel, “Forever Jack”?!
Reading Eversea was like sinking into a water bed and floating off on a desirable dream. The characters got under my skin, the storyline hypnotised me and the twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. Natasha Boyd has catapulted herself to the No. 1 spot of Romance Authors on my list. If you’re looking for whimsical romance, steamy scenes and an epic love story, Eversea is everything and more!!!
