Keri Ann Butler’s life in Butler Cove, South Carolina, has always been quiet and simple. Home is the magnificent Butler historic house that is in dire need of restoration, and work is waitressing at the local diner called The Snapper Grill. Life for Keri Ann picks up when it’s tourist season, or when her brother Joey comes home for short breaks from medical school. Keri Ann has suffered losses in her family and knows the pain of loss and heartbreak too well. She has never had a real boyfriend, and never had a real dream for herself. All she knows is that Butler Cove is where she belongs.
And then one day, a mysterious guy steps in at The Snapper Grill for a last-minute order. It takes a long time for Keri Ann to process that she is staring at Jack Eversea, the biggest and hottest Hollywood celebrity at the moment, star of the blockbuster Erath movies, and who has apparently gone AWOL from Hollywood after a falling out with his equally famous and gorgeous movie star girlfriend, Audrey Lane. Thanks to her best friend Jazz, Keri Ann knows the latest news on Jack Eversea without even realizing it. She has blown Jack’s cover, but oddly enough, Keri Ann finds herself agreeing to keep mum about it, and even helping Jack buy groceries and run errands for him.
Never in her wildest dreams did Keri Ann think she’ll actually be friends with a major Hollywood celebrity. Keeping him a secret from her best friend and their little sleepy town is challenging enough. Keri Ann certainly did not expect just how hard she was going to fall for the beautiful and charismatic Jack Eversea. She sets herself on a collision course that is bound to end badly for her, but this is the most exciting and biggest thing that ever happened to her life. She’s a big girl. She can handle Jack Eversea. Or can she really?
It’s a truly likeable and enjoyable book for fans of contemporary romance. If a romantic escape with a cute and funny klutz for a heroine and a hot mess of a guy with a troubled past and a penchant for mind games is your thing, you will breeze through the pages of this book. It’s a light and fast read that will keep you hooked until the very last page. Good thing the second book is out already, so your Jack Eversea and Keri Ann Butler thirst will be fully satiated ASAP.
