Jack Eversea is back and determined to reclaim the heart of his one true love!!

"I wanted this girl. Like air. All the fucking way."

I have to say that with the way Eversea ended I was just dying to find out what happened next and I loved that this book picked up right where the first one left off. All I had to do to reconnect was reread the last chapter from book #1 and I was good to go!

InEversea, we saw A-list movie star Jack Eversea fall in love with a feisty

5 Eversea*glass Loving Stars

The first book in this series Eversea was a total surprise punch to the junk book for me. (That's a good thing) I wasn't expecting much because I honestly started reading it because I loved the cover. One page in and I was hooked. I wanted to know Keri Ann, Jack, hell I even wanted to know more about Hector in the diner's kitchen. Ms. Boyd has a simple yet intricate way of weaving a story that is so engaging and reads so clearly that you seriously get lost in it. So

I usually hate cliffhangers. Hate. Hate. Hate. Not because they don’t make me want the next instalment in the series more than my next breath, but because I can become so obsessively invested in a storyline that having the sequel readily available becomes a question of preserving my own sanity. Having said that, there are cliffhangers and there are cliffhangers, and some stories require a little time-out to let the reader

I really had to hold myself back from giving this one star.. I seriously LOVED "EVERSEA" and was so anxious to read the sequel.. But I'm so disappointed ;( I mean... Keri Ann was ANNOYING beyond words..The drama was so anticlimactic, yet it draggggged on throughout the entire book.. I feel like if was so wordy, and yet so vague all in one. None of it worked for me. I'm so sad :( Even the epilogue was a let down.. Which is even worse, because that is my FAVORITE part. I needed MUCH MUCH MORE.

5 - I love Jack Eversea - stars!!!!!!

Still amazing the second time around! I had forgotten all about his letters and just reading them again ...

I LOVE THIS SERIES! Seriously, one of my favorites of the year. I absolutely adore Jack and in this second and final installment, I got more of my favorite A-list star, Jack Eversea. There is nothing that I don't like about this book. I love the dialogue, the characters, the pacing, the buildup, the tension and ***ahhhhhh****the sweet release. Natasha Boyd, you are amazing!
If you haven't read book one, this will contain major spoilers so read on with caution!

This book starts right where book

I Left My Heart in Butler Cove

I finished Forever Jack, the second and final book in the Eversea series by Natasha Boyd, two days ago, and I haven’t been able to pick up another book since. That is how much I loved this series and specifically, this book. Natasha Boyd is a very talented author who took an ordinary fairytale concept and wrote an eloquent love story of epic proportions. I’m still smiling thinking of Jack and Keri Ann, and my heart is soaring because it’s still resides with these
I only read 5% before I DNF'd because I knew all the 4/5 star reviews would prove me wrong.... And I was right. This one sucked lemons. This one was way too stupid for me to waste my time and both characters were unlikable.....

Dropped at 26% and then skimmed some

Technically this book was aight; I knew that if I finished this book I would give it 3 stars, but free time for me to read is so limited that I don't want to spend that time reading average books, I need to find ones that I would shelf as my favorites!

Kerri Ann and Jack have an emotionally complex relationship that stalled in book one ('Eversea') of this amazing series. Now, in book two, we have a chance to see if these wonderful characters can finally have a forever.

A vivid love story set in the beautiful South Carolina lowcountry. An entertaining, engaging, totally enjoyable story with a completely satisfying ending. A riveting read.

Highly recommended for readers of contemporary romance.

4.5 forever jack stars.

This completely forfilled all expectations I had for this book! This book was a very quick read and I felt like before I even knew it the story was rapping up and getting the final sending stamp. Honestly... I wish the epilogue was a tad more interesting and exciting but let me say I wasn't disappointed with how it ended I just thought perhaps there could have been a more exciting way to end it. That is why I rated this four and a half stars but I really enjoyed this

By Natasha Boyd

Well I don't even know where to start!! I absolutely LOVED Eversea and when it finished I could have died but I just knew the next book would be amazing and my god I wasn't wrong!!

Firstly I loved that this book was told in not just Kerri Ann's POV but also some chapters from Jack thrown in for good measure too! I adore hearing from the males POV as you can really see the story in a whole different perspective! Jack's side had me swooning like no other!! It was real,

No I didn't want it to end!!!!!!

Please tell me there will be another book! I need to be apart of Jack and Keri Anne's wedding. I need to share in the joy of their first baby, possibly twins? I can't bear that this is the end. What about Jazz and Joey? Was it their wedding that was happening at the end? Did Jack win an Oscar for his portrayal in his story and become the Earl? So many questions to be the end of their story.

It is hard to believe this is only your second book Mrs. Boyd. It was well

4.5 stars! I fell in love with Jack in Eversea but in Forever, Jack...I was a goner. I loved reading this POV and hearing all his emotion and determination to will Keri Ann back. The sacrifices he made really touched me. I loved seeing them get back together.

But Keri Ann pissed me off A LOT in this book. I mean I understand he did hurt you. But once she gave him a second chance, she should have given him her all. I hated her whiplash-causing moments and how she wasn't willing to fight for Jack

Sigh, I absolutely loved this book! This series is just perfect to me, I am having a hard time finding the words to describe how much I love everything about it. I don't think I have ever read a sequel as good as Forever Jack. Natasha is such an amazingly talented writer, you actually feel all the emotions the characters are going through and come to LOVE every single person in this series. There is serious hot steamy sexy scenes in this book, damn. You will never read a hotter non kiss scene ...more

3.5 Stars

Honestly, a lot of this book was a 4 star read. I really did love the first book and knew that this one would entail. A whole bunch of self doubt. I get it...but there were times were Keri Ann drove me nuts. She had issues with certain parts of Jack's life and was a little bit wishy washy about it. There were parts where I wanted to slap her. I got her reservations, her idea of being her own person but if you love someone you have to also trust them to not be that person who takes away

To me the storyline was a bit weak. I wanted Audrey and Jack's past to be a big part of the book and it didn't happened.

I loved Jack as usual but I kinda dislike Keri Ann in the end. She wants Jack but she doesn't want to be known as Jack's girlfriend... a bit tricky when the man is a public face. I read books with a same story - actor/rock star and unknown girl, and they act all the same - scared of being famous, insecure and always feeling betrayed when they read tabloids with their boyfriend

Although I wasn't a huge fan of the first book in the Eversea series but I was curious enough to find out how the story of Jack and Keri-Ann will continue.

A big part of the first half was really annoying, especially Keri-Anns behaviour. I hated her constant questioning and pulling away from Jack, although she was pretty sure of her feelings. She never let him things explain and made up her own story.
I really liked Jack though, he is a very sweet guy and one he remained down on earth albeit

I truly love these characters - Jack Eversea is dreamy! Loved the push and pull of this plot. And the narration by Johnathan McClain and Jorjeana Marie was spot on.

4 's for me!

Forever Jack jumps forward 5 months from the when Eversea ends. Keri Ann is trying hard move on without Jack in her life. She has been accepted into an Arts & Design College and her Artwork would soon be part of an upcoming exhibit. But as much as she tries, her heart is still refuses to let go of him.

At the end of Eversea, Keri Ann was left broken hearted, assuming the worse of the “situation” between Jack and Audrey that ended their relationship. All she knew was he simply

Keri Ann Butler's heart has broken. She feels betrayed by Jack, the man who stole her heart and walked away without a word for months. When Jack comes strolling back into her life and will stop at nothing to convince Keri Ann that he has always loved her.

So, why did he disappear? Can he explain away all his exploits in the tabloids? Can Keri face the public attention being with Jack Eversea and will she have to give up her own dreams to be with him?

Natasha Boyd weaves a fascinating tale of

The book is definitely 5 star worthy. It was one of those books, that when you're finished, you're left wishing you'd dragged it out longer. You're left wishing that there was more to read, more plot twists to freak out over.
The plot is so fantastic though. It's not exactly unpredictable, but it's still great. It leaves you feeling everything from:










It's pretty awesome.
And Jack... oh Jack... I want myself a Jack. Like, really bad.

Needless, to say, the book was epic.

Go read it.

3,5.. It's a good read, well written and enjoyable. However, I was a bit bored, and slightly annoyed with female character. I expected her to be insecure, I expected all the angst, but it doesn't mean I liked it..

About the story...

We start book #2 right where we left Jack in book #1 - he just found out that his Agent and and his Ex Audrey played him for a fool with the whole pregnancy thing.

He's beside himself with anger and sadness and grief.
He left Keri Ann and hurt her and himself for a lie.

He wants to run right back to Kerri Ann, but Audrey - the B**** - blackmails him. She will tell the world what a violent ass he is, and how he cheated on her while she was pregnant - Kerri Ann's

I am always happy to see two people get their HEA, and wow! the drama was high in this one. It was great to get more of Jack's POV, and to get all the details on what happened during Jack and Keri Ann's time apart, and we also learned a great deal about their pasts, which was really eye-opening. I especially loved all the changes in Keri Ann's life. It was fabulous to see her finally starting to make a life for herself and enjoy so much success.

4 Stars / 3 Steam Fans

This is the conclusion of Jack and Keri Anne's story. I enjoyed this book more than the first because there were more of Jack's thoughts about everything that was going on. I also didn't feel that Keri Anne came off as whiny in this part of the story so I enjoyed hearing what she was going through.

This specific video review will be included in the July 2019 wrap-up.

4.5 stars

If book one centered on Jack's wooing, this book focused on him cleaning up his shit and begging for a second chance. And Keri Ann doesn't make things easy for him.

If you didn't develop a dislike for Audrey Lane, Jack's ex, in book 1, you are likely to downright hate her in this book. I know I did! What a fake ass grade A b_tch (and that's me holding back). She really puts Jack through the ringer and jeopardizes his future with Keri Ann. Although I liked how hard he tried to keep Keri

This was nearly as amazing as the first one. It definitely had the same feeling about it.
The only thing that annoyed me was Keri Ann with her stubborness and how she was kinda whiney the whole time over.
Otherwise it was another amazing read and I cant wait for the next one.

“Damn, I know. I remember your mountains of books. I want to build you a library." Jack lowered his mouth and kissed me.
I swallowed as emotion clogged my throat. He might as well have asked me to marry him.”
“It occurred to me that the moment in space and time before lips touch, the small exquisite sting of wanting, a beat of thirst, of yearning, was the most underrated part of kissing. There should be sonnets and epic poems written about the space before a kiss, and the thrilling rush that comes with the moment of contact.” 25 likes
