Jack Eversea left Keri Ann Butler and her beautiful seaside town for a reason. It needed to be done ASAP, and there was no time for explanations. All Jack wanted was to protect Keri Ann at all costs, even if it meant breaking her heart. He wanted to keep her away from the harsh realities of his very public life. The tabloids and entertainment websites told a completely different story, one that painted him in a very bad light, but if it meant keeping the woman he loved away from the prying and judgmental eyes of the public, and the vengeful wrath of his onscreen romantic partner Audrey Lane, Jack would gladly go along with it.
For Keri Ann, Jack’s abandonment was personal, painful, and humiliating, to say the least. How do you get from bliss and passion to zero communication and no closure at all? It took Keri Ann months to pick up the broken pieces of her heart and her life. But if there was any good thing that came out of this whole romantic mess with the famous Hollywood celebrity, it made her realize that she had a talent that was worthy enough of a scholarship at a prestigious art school, and her very own show at the local art gallery.
But after several months of not hearing from Jack Eversea, he is back in Butler Cove, and Keri Ann Butler’s world is about to be turned upside down again. He will stop at nothing to be forgiven, and he will do everything in his power to become a part of Keri Ann’s life again, whether she liked it or not.
Just as I expected, this sequel to Eversea packed a lot of scenes that made me want to barf, roll my eyes, or snort with derision, in no particular order. I’m really just allergic to cheesy, laughable lines, and I cannot lie. Overall, it’s melodramatic, corny, and predictable, although it did present the potential realities of what it could be like to date a world-famous superstar. Unfortunately, I liked the minor characters here more than I did the main characters. You read one book from this genre, you’ve basically read all of them. But if you’re looking for a quick romantic book just for the heck of it, this can tide you over, I guess.
