The ReviewIf you’re a fan of New Adult stories then it’s impossible to not know about Eversea by Natasha Boyd. It’s all I’ve been hearing about so I knew it was something I wanted to read so I could discover the hype about this story, and although it’s not a favourite of mine, it’s still worth a read. 

Kerri, an orphaned southern girl living in a small town called Butler Cove. Her life is going by day by day until it’s her change to escape. But for right now, she’s stuck and is desperately trying to renovate her family’s estate. This is where Hollywood actor Jack enters who is looking for a quite summer to get over a nasty and much publicized relationship; Jack goes off the radar and straight to Butler Cove looking for some much needed peace. It’s at a bar one night that Kerri and Jack meet and soon realize they could both get what they want by working together, but can they stop the obvious attraction that is flying between them? 

Eversea is a quick summer romance read that’s has quite an enjoyable story. I really enjoyed the characters introductions and found I quickly connected with the characters and their lives. I do love a good Hollywood romance story and while I enjoyed Eversea I didn’t love it. For me the story was overall predictable and I feel like I’ve read the story a million times in other books now. I can see why so many people enjoyed the book though because I do think Natasha Boyd set the plot of the story up quite well and it was just a shame it was so predictable. 

I did really like Kerri. I loved her personality and thought she was a lovely person. So completely down to earth and so much fun. And I completely fell for Butler Cove – I really want it to be real! I think the main reason I had an issue with the book was Jack. I liked him, I really did but I just thought he was so boring. I honestly think I’ve been spoilt for choice with all these bad boy characters and Jack is just so vanilla. I didn’t feel the connection to him as I normally would for the love interest. 

In all, Eversea was a good read, one that I wish I enjoyed more but still I’m glad I crossed it off my TBR for this year! 

Thank you to Headline Eternal for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.

I felt the same way about Eversea. It was very predictable and just okay.
