4 1/2 STARS !
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.
****** This is a part one of a two part series and it does have a cliffhanger ******
I really really enjoyed this book! Something about a hot movie star and an ordinary girl makes my heart go pitter patter ! It was a cute fun read that I read right through without stopping! I totally walked right into that one click and didn't look back , I am so happy I came across this awesome book! I loved Jack and Keri Ann <- totally love her name too it's so southern and its so different!
Keri Ann is a wonderful sweet, selfish, and caring person but she was very mixed up with her thoughts about Jack the whole time during this book which does get super frustrating but you understand it because sometimes we just DON'T know how to feel or what to feel. So it made this book seem somewhat realistic in that way since well lets face it not many hot movie stars are going to be escaping to any of our small towns anytime soon!
Now Jack , jack , jack , jack - I don't know how to feel about him. I liked his character appeal and felt he was super hot ,sexy, and an alpha male ;). The reason I don't know how to feel about him because I think he's kind of a douche canoe. & No he's not mean to Keri Ann or something but the situation that was going on just could have been prevented. He did warn her and I don't mean like that but really who gives a fuck about everyone else, I wanted to just yell at him to come to his senses. I also think that the relationship could have been more of a progression. It was like he didn't show anything towards Keri Ann than all of a sudden BAM lets fuck- well not literally but you get my drift HA! Other than the weird start to their relationship I loved this book so much and wish I had the sequel in my hands like UM, NOW !
I can't wait to read the sequel and see Keri Ann and Jack relationship *hopefully* (fingers crossed) progress and come together !
