Review: Forever, Jack by Natasha Boyd

***** 5 Stars

I read the first Eversea book in one sitting and was so happy that I had book two Forever, Jack ready to go because boy did Natasha Boyd leave us on a cliffhanger. I had to restrain myself at 2 in the morning from starting this one as soon as I finished Eversea. Well ok I may have read a few pages before I couldn't stay awake any longer.
So at the end of Eversea we are left with Jack returning to his girlfriend and totally breaking Keri Anne's heart but all is not as it seems.

The Blurb

A feisty small-town girl and the Hollywood star who broke her heart

An all-consuming love threatened by fame

One last chance at FOREVER

Keri Ann Butler's life changed on the night she met movie star, Jack Eversea. She thought she knew a Jack that was very different to the man adored by fans the world over. In the wake of his betrayal and abandonment, Keri Ann has had to pick up and move forward with the life she was supposed to live and has put off far too long.

Suddenly Jack is back, and his explanations for why he left seem more and more plausible, and his declarations more seductive. But being Jack's latest tabloid accessory isn't on Keri Ann's career agenda, no matter how much she is attracted to him. And how can she can ever trust him again?

Jack knows he let the only 'real' thing that ever happened to him slip through his fingers. And his hands have been tied to try and stop it. Until Now.

Jack is now fighting to save his relationship with Keri Ann, even as his crazy life threatens to tear them apart. Again. The question is, can he convince her she can have it all? And have him? Forever?

My Thoughts

I was sucked straight back into Keri Anne and Jack's worlds immediately. The story picks up 5 months after Jack left Butler Cove Island to return to his pregnant girlfriend, Audrey. Except she has betrayed him in the worse possible way and told a lie just to make him go back to her. On learning of the deception he immediately sets out back to Keri Ann but Audrey is still in control and makes it impossible for him to do so. So here we are 5 months later Jack is finally in a position to head back to Butler Cove and see Keri Anne and to try and explain what happened, except when he sees her she is with a new man.

It becomes apparent that Jack has kept out of Keri Anne's life because he has been protecting her from the media fallout that has been brewing around their relationship. And for that very reason you just have to love Jack just a little bit more. 

I loved that this book was also told from the point of view of Jack. It was great to see his feelings and thoughts on the page and to learn so much more about him as a person. Jack just wants to to the right thing by Keri Anne and it certainly looks as though she has moved on with her life. And oh my reading the pages from his journal was truly heartbreaking.

Keri Anne is still the same strong, feisty character that we saw in Eversea except she has now began to make a name for herself in the art world and has been unsuccessfully trying to forget about Jack. She has found herself and began to move into a world that doesn't just include Butler Cove.

This book centres on Jack trying to win Keri Anne back and he will stop at nothing to do so. Even when she tells him that if he loves her he will let her go because she knows that their two worlds just won't mix he still continues to fight for her. Everything just seems to be against them and that all just adds to the intensity of this book.

Once again Natasha Boyd has written a beautiful, captivating read full of heartache and possibilities. So Natasha, if you are reading this then please tell me that you are going to write a book 3?
